What a lovely experience! Every little thing has been thought of to make your stay comfortable a luxury hotel level of detail! We want to return in the summer so we can sit outside but even with February rain the hut provided us with joyous shelter.

We had a lovely time at the Burlands, its a beautiful place. The host Zena had thought of everything. If you want to eat at the pub, book before you go, they squeezed us in on the Friday but it does get very busy.

The shepherds hut was beautiful inside and out. Very clean and well equipped. The grounds are gorgeous, birds singing from morning to night. The stars of the show have to be the animals, the dogs and cats are very friendly and will go on walks with you, yes and the cat came too! There are 2 small ponies that also roam the grounds. Zena the owner isRead more extremely helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Situated in a small village with easy links to places of interest. We will return. Hide

Perfect little short break in Shepherd's Hut No. 2. Loved the menagerie of animals that welcomed us every morning and when we came back after sightseeing. In imperfect British weather, the hot tub was a blessing, And the hut was so well equipped despite its size, we lacked for nothing.
