Testimonials
We just wanted to say a big thank you for creating such a lovely place to stay. We had the most relaxing peaceful time and enjoyed having Lenny, the horse as our only neighbour (and Bea, Lenny's friend when she was out!) An idyllic spot, with beautifully thought out huts.....and quite possibly the most comfortable bed ever!!. Even Fin, our 11yr old technology addicted son, loved every minute of mucking around in the field, playing scrabble by candle and fairy light and wiling away time reading his book in the hammock!
We look forward to our next stay!
Thanks again

I just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful shepherds hut. It was absolutely stunning. We thought the toilet and shower were fantastic and the hut was so clean. The bed was one of the comfiest I have slept on. Both yourself and Doug made us feel so welcome and we will definitely be back!

The shepherds hut was wonderful, we had a wonderful new year's eve away from everything. The hut is cosy and very comfortable, with all the amenities you could need. The outdoor toilet is clean and there is even a hot shower - luxury!
We loved feeding the pigs and visiting the horses and chickens, plus great hiking right from the door. Pauline and Doug were very friendly and helpful hosts - It could not have been a better stay. Thank you!  Amy and Brian, London 31/12/16
 
The shepherds hut was exactly what we were looking for. A super simple space to relax in a field surrounded by quiet horses and warmed by a powerful big burner. The perfect respite after the chaos of Christmas. We only spent one night but I'd happily live there and spend my days outside chopping wood, taking walks by the river and eating. You don't need to go far to find plenty of tiny quaint villages and we really enjoyed the friendly atmos and tasty grub at the Crown in Weston

David and I had an amazing time in the Shepherds Hut - what a quaint space!

"We are back now and looking at all the photos to remind us of our wonderful stay. - What a beautiful little treasured spot. We had such a nice walk in the evening sunshine past Edgcote House and then a glass of wine in The Griffin. This morning we loved walking in the mist and then watching the sun come up. The shower was fantastic and a whole new experience being semi-outdoors. We walked down to the river and watched hares running, which was brilliant. So as you can tell we loved every minute and will definitely be back very soon" P & J Ellis (Milton Keynes)

I know we told you that we were going to tell everyone on trip advisor about your Shepherds hut. It was SO wonderful that we have changed our minds as we don't want anyone else to know about it! Sorry!! We will be back very soon... Sonya and Daniel. Kettering, Northants.
 
Hi Pauline,
 
I just wanted to email to say what a brilliant time we had last night at the Shepherd hut. You have a wonderful location, we loved the welcome from the dogs, ducks and chickens! The horses cantered up to us (only a little disappointed that we didn't have food for them!) and one of the pigs visited in the morning! The hut is lovely, you seem to have thought of everything and it has some beautiful touches. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast hamper this morning and cooked it up on the gas BBQ. It was a great stay and we hope we can get to visit again. Thanks again, Kat (Rainhill, Merseyside)
