Previous visitors' comments about Shepherd's Hut:
The peace and quiet of being on the farm, watching the sheep in the evening with the lambs racing up and down the field was a hi-light. The huge lounge window was fantastic. There was plenty to keep children occupied in the surrounding area. We would like to come back to this area of the country in the future.
