  • "Wow! So many words describe this wonderful place."

    Beautiful, peaceful, luxurious bed, bedding and towels, warm and cosy, clean and comfortable. So lovely to see sheep , alpacas, geese and squirrels in the field surrounding the Hut and to overlook the countryside. Will is a lovely host making sure everything is ok and nothing was too much trouble for him. What an amazing achievement, building the Shepherds Hut to such a high specification with so many lovely details. I will definitely be returning and highly recommend a stay.

  • "We've stayed in a few shepherd's huts, but never one quite like this."

    Superb facilities, sparkling clean, and a bed so comfortable I wanted to bring it home! The owner, Will, is friendly and welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble, yet he was mindful of our privacy at all times. There's a lot of hard work gone into this, and it shows. Oh, so quiet, and peaceful, our stay was utter bliss. A complete rest from the hustle and bustle of our lives. Our little dog absolutely loved it too. Thank you for a fabulous stay

  • "Halkons Hut is an absolutely stunning little place to stay, wether you’re just wanting to get out of the city or needing a relaxing couple of days out of sight."

    It was very clean, well equipped with small attention to detail. Not forgetting the beautiful farm life animals in the gated off area around the hut. The host is very accommodating and friendly, overall we enjoyed our little stay and would highly recommend it!
