  • "We had a great stay albeit our plans were somewhat cast awry by Storm Babet."

    Very well appointed and comfortable accommodation in the shepherd's hut, great location and, excellent, very helpful yet non-intrusive hosts. We hope to revisit in order to sample a couple of nights around the fire pit and to enjoy the hammock!

    Thank you for your kind comments and really pleased that you had a good stay despite the weather! Also thank you for the quiz games. With rain like that, staying in and playing games was a good option. See you again sometime. Property Owner
