  • "We cannot recommend a stay at The Shearer’s Hut enough."

    It is beautifully decorated and so cosy. Communication with the owner prior to our arrival was good and she spoiled us rotten with a bottle of fizz and goodies. It’s the perfect location to explore the surrounding countryside and the pub opposite serves great food.
