We had 4 nights at the hut. Amanda was very friendly and helpful, we was treated to a bottle of prosecco, and was kindly offered to come a day early and leave later, free of charge. The hut seems larger once inside and very cosy. We really enjoyed making use of the log burner in the colder evenings and snuggling up in bed watching Netflix. We lovedRead more waking up to a friendly alpaca, who made quick work of the carrots! Perfect place to relax and enjoy pretty views. Hide

Think Ive found my bolt hole! Dogs were happy, although Im not sure Wallace will welcome us back Even though the weather was rainy, it not stop us getting out & exploring Waddendon Estate. I just worried about the muddy floor!

I would describe it as idyllic, compact and cosy - we had all of the bits of bobs we needed in it We made use of the outdoor BBQ and hot tub, but our favorite things about our stay were AmanRead moreda's animals: Wallace (the Alpaca), Digby & Cookie (Dogs) they made it extra special! Amanda was an amazing host and we would highly recommend a stay! Hide

Perfect accommodation and location for a 'get away from it all' break. Spent three nights Sept 19 with hubby and our dog Ollie and couldn't have hoped for anything better. Wallace the alpaca added something special to the tranquil environment. Hope to return sometime in the future.
