Shepherd Huts at One Stop
Shepherd Huts and Safari Tent
Our four huts are lovingly handcrafted right onsite. They are based on a traditional Shepherd hut design in the UK and come furnished with beautiful fittings. Our Shepherds’ Huts offer all the joys of the great outdoors and provides a perfect base from which to explore the Mount Kenya region or, for those wishing to explore further afield, a stop off en route to spectacular Laikipia and Northern Kenya.
Its also a perfect stopover for business people wanting access to the Nanyuki area whilst not having to book into a large hotel in town.
Our Shepherds Huts are located at One Stop Nanyuki, right opposite the Nanyuki airstrip on the Nanyuki – Nairobi highway, 10 kms from Nanyuki town.
Each hut can comfortably accommodate 1 - 3 people and offers a perfect retreat with stunning views facing mystical Mt Kenya. A double bed and a single bed is in each hut.
The Safari tent has a king size bed and 2 single beds inside. If you have booked into the accommodation and need more space there's enough space for you to pitch a tent. (camping fees 500ksh per person)
Luxury linens are provided including duvets, pillows and throws, and towels, loo paper & soap are provided in the bathroom. Bathrooms with solar hot water systems together with a booster ensure piping hot water on even the cloudiest day. If you use the booster please only leave it on for 30 minutes, this is plenty of time to heat the water. Should you have any issues with pressure please contact Sammy as there could be an airlock.
A BBQ is available for some outdoor cooking or marshmallow toasting. A fridge, kettle, toaster, some basic crockery and cutlery is available in each hut. All guests are requested to sign the registration book on arrival. Check in is from 12 pm - 8pm & check out by 10:30 am. If you would like to request an earlier or late check out time please do confirm with us first. Please be careful with your keys, remember to lock up after you and leave them in the door when you check out.
Wifi is available in Oak and Bramble Huts
Wifi is not currently available in Ivy, Holly huts or the tent but plans for this are underway.

Dogs /Noise/ Security
We are dog friendly - well behaved pooches only and don't forget to bring their baskets please.
Please leave any valuables locked in your car rather than in the huts. Although we provide ample security, we cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to property in the huts. Please be respectful of your neighbors in the other huts and keep noise to an absolute minimum. Unless you have booked all the huts exclusively or we don’t have other bookings at the time we will not allow any music to be played on the premises as this will compromise the experience for other guests.
Directions to Oak & Bramble: The car park is just behind the huts - on entering One Stop take an immediate left and follow the road around to the right, it brings you to the Vets and the huts.
Directions to Ivy and Holly and the luxury Safari tent: On entering One Stop take an immediate left and keep left following the warthog signs, the road goes straight passed the garage and around the side of the property to the back. Parking is adjacent to the huts/tent.
