Shedworkingesque holidays in a shepherd's hut seem to be on the up. Here's another lovely possibility, Tilley's Hut at Melbury Abbas, Shaftesbury, Dorset, next to a copse and working farm. Entirely refurbished, insulated and refurnished since it was built in 1910, it's heated by a wood burner and has solar-powered lighting (and indeed enough green electric to run your laptop, etc). No television. Which is obviously a good thing, as is the breakfast which is brought to your hut in the morning and features local Dorset ingredients. Sleeps two.
