Lovely & helpful host with stunning scenery to match. If you want a v simple but comfortable holiday off the grid, and happy with no electricity / running water, this is for you

The Sheppard's hut is exquisitely decorated. We spent a cosy day away from the elements with the wood burner roaring in the back ground - the pub close by is exceptional. And then the walking started just outside! Then to relax those walking muscles the Hot tub is out of this world. Well done Gabbie. We'll be back!

Stunning on all counts. Location so tranquil, only animals and birdsong to keep us company. The hot tub was amazing, sitting watching the countryside and sipping Champagne. All the log burners appealed to my partner big time. He had a great time. Food at the Bridge Inn was good Plenty of public footpaths and walks to be enjoyed. Take care when walkRead moreing/driving, the roads are very narrow. If you want a special romantic time away, this is hard to beat. expensive but worth it as a treat Hide

This is an incredible place... every detail has been thought about. It is so satisfying to heat up the hot tub with your own homemade fire, and cook on the fire pit. We had an idyllic weekend - the weather was clear and sunny too, which was lucky. However, this place would be fun in any weather.

Reviewed by Andrew, 26th June 2017

The Hideaway is a perfect place to get away from it all - really cosy, secluded spot & every little detail has been thought of by the owners. The craftsmanship that went into creating the huts & the hot tub is just amazing and even the most inhibited people can enjoy the 'freedom' here... ;) The nearest pub is perfectly walkable if you are relativeRead morely fit & there's plenty to explore in the area. I booked this as a birthday surprise for my girlfriend and we both loved it - I'm sure we'll be back! Hide

I have rated as 5 stars across the board, however when visiting this needs to be taken in reflection of where you are, a small isolated hut in the middle of a field . If you are looking for a proper get away from the hustle and bustle of mundane life, like to get back to nature and are comfortable to be out some of the finer touches (you will find Read moreno TV or DVD collection here) then this is the place for you. The Hut is beautiful, warm, comfortable and had everything we needed Hide

The best hideaway for couples needing to escape the world. Off grid time which is well needed.

Reviewed by Sharon, 26th May 2017

Serene, peaceful, tranquil and totally relaxing. The living hut was so comfortable and had been clearly very well designed. The craftsmanship outstanding. Highlight was the clever upcycling of an old digger bucket which now functions as a hot tub. The setting of our own (temporary) meadow was truly beautiful. We didn't want to leave.

Reviewed by Jesper, 13th January 2017

Simply wonderful! We stayed for three nights in the middle of January. We arrived to a light snow covering, which was so beautiful,. The hut was warm and cosy as the log burner had already been lit by Gabbie (owner) who was very helpful, though we never met her in person, as complete privacy is what you will get. If you are looking to just escape iRead moret all for a while then this could not be more perfect! we loved every minute and we will be going again as soon as possible. Hide
