  • "Our week at Shepard’s Hut was excellent."

    The cottage is clean and very comfortable, both the furniture and the bed. It’s a very rural location and the scenery is beautiful with horses in the field nearby. The owners, Mary and John, are very pleasant and helpful and their young Jack Russell is very friendly too and got on well with our elderly dog. The lack of Wi-Fi didn't bother us at all as we knew in advance and went prepared. We will certainly book again and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it for a very relaxing holiday. Thank you Mary and John.

    We really enjoyed our holiday at Shepard's Hut.

  • "Very comfortable accommodation in a lovely rural setting, but still close enough to all amenities."

    The secure garden was ideal for our JRT Cooper, who loved meeting the chickens, and gave him plenty of room to chase his ball.Great base for exploring the many places of interest in the surrounding area. Though it's not a deal breaker, the cottage would benefit from having a toaster (as using the grill whilst cooking on the hob isn't ideal). To elevate this property to get 100% Five stars the addition of Internet access should be considered. That aside, we had a fantastic time and would definitely return. Kind regards, Sue, Robin and Cooper.

  • "Mr and Mrs Ewing were very welcoming and super helpful during our stay."

    The large enclosed garden was a perfect place for our Doberman to burn off some energy. The area is commutable to quite a few beaches and shops/amenities and we had a fantastic time even with a hit and Miss weather. Would highly recommend the place. The only thing you need to be mindful of is there is no toaster or washing machine, hence a bit of improvisation needed if you are on a longer stay. overall, a nice experience and we would definitely be coming again.

  • "This is a lovely, peaceful bungalow in a very rural location."

    Although the kitchen might appear dated we found it more than adequate for a week of self-catering. The important things were clean (bedding, towels, bathroom) but a little more attention to detail, especially in removing dog hair from carpets, would have been welcome. The views from the kitchen and double bedroom are lovely, overlooking fields towards The Wash, but we found the view from the lounge to be a touch miserable, with the main window facing the owners' huge garage wall. Renters should now be aware that the owners have a CL (certified location) directly in front of the lovely view from the bedroom window which means that there could be up to 5 motor homes or caravans parked up, obscuring your view and potentially undermining your privacy. All in all this was a nice little cottage with friendly owners, and we'd happily consider coming back.

    The kitchen is quite old fashioned but we love it as takes me back to my childhood, there was a bath in the bathroom but has now been updated to a shower, I prefer the bath but won't stop us going back. The owners are lovely and helpful, our 6 year old son loves the hens and he sleeps like a log in the comfy bed. Will be returning many times in the future. Ann, Leroy and Devon.

    The owners are aware of this and the enclosed garden is a very big area which is shared with their dogs. The owners are very nice people and will accommodate you as best they can so don’t be put off. There is no Wi-Fi which didn’t bother my wife and I cause we just sat around and read most of the time.

  • "The cottage is in a lovely position, very nice sitting outside with a smashing view, wild birds, horses, and chickens to amuse you."

    The owners were very welcoming and friendly. There are walks along lovely lanes straight from the cottage. The nearest village (2 miles) has a great bakers and butchers, a co-op and two pubs. Unfortunately the cottage has a few issues. Both the kitchen and bathroom need a good makeover. The bathroom needs a new suite and a proper shower, and the kitchen a new cooker, also a toaster would have been handy.the microwave is unusable on top of the massive fridge freezer. The mirror in the bathroom is too high, and the one in the bedroom too low...we had a good stay but If these issues were sorted we would have had a great stay and it would be a cracking cottage. These are constructive criticisms to help the owners improve the cottage.

    The shower was mixer tap, it was challenging could do with a shower cubicle. At Although hot water plentiful being a mixer was difficult to gauge it, very hot or cold. Not good for younger children. Being on one level would be idea for someone with mobility issues but bathing would be issue. The owners were more than helpful. Not overlooked quiet and the scenery spectacular. Well worth it. Lovely and relaxing.
