Heading over to the shepherd’s hut, you will find the cosy sleeping area, with double bed, wood burner (logs included) and tea/coffee making facilities.

Outside, the property is fully enclosed, and you will find a decked area with a large private sunken hot tub, garden furniture and BBQ.

Fantastic place to stay. In the middle of beautiful countryside, perfect for a relaxing break away. Lovely cosy shepherds hut to sleep and a well equipped comfortable separate hut to eat and relax in. Lots of lovely walks and to finish the day off in the hot tub was just perfect.

Stayed here for 2 nights after we got married and it was the most perfect place to stay. Hot tub was amazing and the bed was the most comfortable bed we have slept on. We was also welcomed by a springer spaniel when we arrived :)

Such a beautiful place, peaceful, secluded & full of charming character. The Hotub is amazing to relax & unwind & the log burner on a chilly night or even just for the glow is perfect. Everything you need for a self catering stay is available for you & the little farm dog likes to pop his head in every now & then for a fuss. Lots to do locally fromRead more eating out to nice walks, the fisherman's cot has very tasty food & a riverside setting that we enjoyed & the great Western canal for a lovely walk. Hide

A lovely little gem of a place! So peaceful and nicely tucked away but still plenty of things nearby if you want to go and explore. Having the kitchen and two bathrooms (great bonus) away from the bedroom works really well, and the hot tub is divine - even in the rain! We will certainly be back!
