Previous visitors' comments about Shepherds Villa:
The situation of the property was perfect and all the amenities were close at hand. There were wonderful walks available from the door.
Mrs Johns, Bath, April 2013
Location was fantastic, size of property is good and the price was very fair.
Mr Robertson, Bristol, March 2013
The cottage was very affordable indeed compared to other like-sized properties. Beds are very comfortable with good supporting mattresses and good quality linen, and we were well-provided with towels. The house has a large car park so we were able to park off-street. The kitchen was well up to the job with a good double oven and plenty of pots and pans.
Mr Wallace, Hartlepool, October 2012
There was lots of room for us all not to crowd each other. Good cooking facilities. Beautiful location.
