Lovely relaxing place to stay with plenty of walks right outside the door. Well equipped and it was lovely having the summer house to sit in during the evenings. A shame that the local pub was closed most of our stay so check times before you go! Brewery was open though! Would definitely recommend doing The Hanging Stone and Luds Church walk.

My partner and I greatly enjoyed our stay in the Shepherd's Hut. The hut is compact, but completely equipped with the essentials. We ended up with pretty rubbish weather, but the hut was so warm and cozy that the wind and rain didn't matter.

The Shepherds Crook hut was by far, better than anything weve stayed in before ( and I have high standards!), just beautiful in every way and spotlessly clean.

Had a absolutely wonderful time. There was a lovely cake to welcome you. The views were amazing from the property. Lots of wildlife come by and it is great to see the sheep that are next to the property. If on a walking holiday, there are many spectacular walks close by. Be aware that there is no TV or wifi.

This little shepherds hut is adorable and very close to some great walks . The ship inn is right around the corner and is great for food or a much needed pint after a long walk . Really relaxing and makes for a great romantic getaway . The owners are very hospitable and nothing is too much bother .
