This was an absolutely perfect location to get away from the modern world. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed sitting by the fires talking and enjoying the nature around. We would definitely return and it has made us want to live off the grid :) loved it!!!!

Location is beautiful and the bed is very comfy. The weather was horrific with strong winds and down pour which Unfortunately did not make our experience as we had hoped. The trip to the toilet got us a little muddy and the cold wind meant we couldnt get the hot tub HOT even after 5 hours of lots of wood on the fire.

Absolutely amazing time spent in this shepherd's hut in a field all on its own. You can be totally cut off from the world and enjoy being back to nature. Take a few books and enjoy reading by the fire or whilst you're getting the hot tub going. The owner Gabby was so helpful and lovely. Gabby made sure our stay was memorable.
