    “A treat for your pooch and you”

    What a find! We have just returned from our Shepherd Hut 4 day break and it wasn't long enough ! Weather was brilliant and the North Wales scenery and sites is spectacular. So much to see and do if you are willing to travel but plenty of walks local to the hut. The hut itself is compact but has everything you need for a comfortable stay and was spotlessly clean on arrival. The view from the door was just breathtaking. The best bit for me was the very secure garden for the dog. He had a whole large area to himself and it was lovely to open the hut door and let the dog out without worrying about safety . Needless to say the dog loved it. As darkness fell we lit a log burner and watched the sunset. ( logs and kindle supplied,). As a result of Covid the near by pub wasn't open to the general public which is a shame as was only mins walk away. - so come prepared with provisions and make bookings ahead for restaurants etc as many were fully booked because of the government eat out to help out scheme. A brillant 4 days and we will be back !
