What an absolute treat! Wish we could have stayed longer. The shepherds hut is so cosy and was a great relaxing break away from London. The hut is so secluded and they have made it extremely accommodating, they have everything you need including a hot tub which looks out at the stars at night! :) will definitely be coming back!

Perfect relaxing calm environment. We had an amazing mini moon. The location is great and central to most sight seeing locations. Take a few bits for the fridge as the nearest supermarket it about 15min away by car and you won't want to go out when you get there... you'll want to jump in the hot tub and take in the views!
