  • "We absolutely loved this trip, they have done a great job with the shepherds hut and surrounding area and the golf caddie was an added bonus which just gave our trip that additional special touch!"

    Peter did a great job of sending all the details prior to us arriving so we were well prepared as well as meeting us on the day of arrival to say hello. The hut was well equipped and everything worked as it should, we had no problems with anything. The bed was also very comfy! It is such a tranquil place and very relaxing, we brought a little sunshine along with us too so we could enjoy the view and also do a bit of train spotting. The hot tub was great, it did take a little while to heat on the first night so unable to use it but once heated we couldn’t stay out of it. We went to the Rising Sun down the road for dinner which was lovely hot food and friendly staff, they also do takeaway woodfire pizza which you can bring back to the shepherds hut so you can enjoy the view while eating dinner which was fab! We loved the wood burner within the hut, it created some great heat which allowed us to feel very comfortable especially when the air outside was cold, they leave you everything you need to do this and extra within the log store with an honesty box if you would like some more. Overall, it was such a great trip to relax and only a short drive away from some fantastic beaches, we will definitely be back and recommend to family and friends.

    The little extras of the use of a golf buggy and a lovely hamper on arrival makes it a little more personal. Hot tub was clean and maintained well. We liked the fact that you didn’t even need to wear a swim suit

    Thank you for your kind words. We're so glad you enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and that you enjoyed enough privacy to skinny dip in the hot tub. I'm sure only the sheep in the field above were laughing at you :). Other customers should note we don't allow general nudity but of course a private bath under the canopy of the stars is fine.

    So restful and quiet, and Peter & Lisa just left us to relax in peace with no intrusion whilst giving everything of service. Only downside is Sykes' e-mail bombardment for "feedback" and comment - I use my 'phone as an alarm clock and so it is next to the bed with the volume on. Getting woken by an e-mail alert at 2am every other night is really not appreciated. Sykes need to programme their computer to send their spam out during office hours, not the small hours. NB: Sykes is an agent; not the site owner/operator. The site owners - and the site - are awesome!

  • "What was a lovely little break in Devon was massively overshadowed by the shambles that is Sykes and the way they go about their business."

    I booked this 2 night stay for £450 back in June, but was quickly sent a confirmation email suggesting I had booked the incorrect dates, which I most definitely did not do. After calling and emailing Sykes a number of times, no one answered, I was left in a position where I just had to book the holiday with the 'new' dates. The price rocketed to £1135 for 2 nights. As nice as this quirky little place is, it certainly isn't worth over £600 per night, as the owner was quick to agree. The owner's are nice, they got in touch and tried to help, but they also hit a brick wall when it came to asking Sykes what happened, they suggested it was me who made the wrong booking and the surge in prices is just to be expected at this time of year. It's a shambles quite frankly, don't trust them at all. You'll end up with hidden fees and charges as they try to fill their pockets, sadly I'll never ever be going with them ever again and neither should you. As someone who's mental health has been dreadful this past year, I was really looking forward to this, but all these troubles and the financial burden of it has actually set me back about 10 steps in my recovery... it is really such a shame. I will continue to try recover and try to forget all about this, but I feel it's important to help others not make the mistakes i made, in thinking I could trust these people. Adam

    We're really pleased to hear that you had a lovely break in Devon. Apologies for any confusion over the pricing of your break. You initially booked your stay online and were quoted the correct price for the dates chosen. You then amended your dates and chose to proceed in the knowledge that the price had been increased for a weekend stay. We can confirm that all prices quoted were correct and visible at each stage of your booking. We're really sorry that you have decided in hindsight that the price was unacceptable, and were pleased to be able to amend our housekeeping schedule to enable you to check in four hours early as a gesture of goodwill.

    Everything was perfect! The Kingsize bed was particularly comfortable with lovely bedding including big bouncy pillows and a gorgeous soft furry throw. Even though we visited in January the hut was beautifully warm with underfloor heating and a cosy log burner supplied with ample logs. The hot tub was perfectly positioned to enjoy the magnificent view with a glass of bubbly (champagne glasses provided). The golf buggy provided to navigate the steep path to our hut was great fun and useful for moving luggage to and fro. We were met on arrival by Peter who clearly understood that being on hand but discreet is key. We could have easily have spent the four days staying put in such an ideal setting but we ventured out to some local pubs all of which were lovely and cosy with good home cooking. We drove out to the quaint village of Clovelly and even went over the border into Cornwall and discovered the rugged Cornish coast at Bude. We could have stayed longer and would consider a Monday to Friday break in the future.

    The Little Silver Fox is a little gem, a slice of paradise in an idyllic setting. The hosts Lisa and Peter have thought of everything you could possibly need to make your stay a perfect one. The shepherds hut has been fitted to a very high standard with quality products, the photos online give an excellent view of what to expect and the addition of the welcome pack which contains food and drink to get you started and providing those extra little touches such as salt, pepper and oil and washing up liquid, means you don't have to remember to bring these along with you. The setting is perfect, situated in an orchard, with birds, bees and butterflies for company and views across the valley in near peace and quiet were exactly what we were expecting and needed. Having a golf buggy to use to and from the small car park is a very clever idea and a lot of fun. The real bonus here is the hot tub and we loved it. The hosts provide gorgeous fluffy robes which is a luxurious touch and ideal to wear to and from the hot tub. We spent every evening enjoying a glass of fizz and as there is hardly any light pollution here and keeping all external lighting off we were able to watch the amazing night sky and spotted several shooting stars while listening to the owls hooting. I would highly recommend this little gem to anyone looking for some peace and quiet while enjoying a little touch of luxury.

    All amenities are provided other than usual self care items such as shower gel etc. A little welcome basket containing coffee, tea, sugar, eggs, home made cookies, crisps and apple juice was provided and there was milk and butter in the fridge. The only issue we had was with the hot water and a quick email to Peter fixed that. The only suggestion I have for improvement would be to add a little fan to the property and also a mirror in the main area as having to use one mirror in the bathroom is a little difficult if someone else is using the bathroom at the time. The hot tub was absolutely amazing and the temperature and controls easy to navigate. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again as the owners are wonderful and very helpful too.

    There are three shepherds huts on the side of a hill over looking a valley. The huts are far enough apart to allow privacy when using the hot tubs. The novel experience of using golf buggies to reach the huts was also a first for us and is necessary as the access is quite steep. Our hosts made us very welcome and provided a basket of treats on arrival. The whole experience was delightful and we would thoroughly recommend the excellently fitted out, comfortable shepherd huts for a relaxing break in a quiet location but within easy reach of the North Devon Coast.
