    “We absolutely loved this trip, they have done a great job with the shepherds hut and surrounding area and the golf caddie was an added bonus which just gave our trip that additional special touch!”

    Peter did a great job of sending all the details prior to us arriving so we were well prepared as well as meeting us on the day of arrival to say hello. The hut was well equipped and everything worked as it should, we had no problems with anything. The bed was also very comfy! It is such a tranquil place and very relaxing, we brought a little sunshine along with us too so we could enjoy the view and also do a bit of train spotting.

    Peter did a great job of sending all the details prior to us arriving so we were well prepared as well as meeting us on the day of arrival to say hello. The hut was well equipped and everything worked as it should, we had no problems with anything. The bed was also very comfy! It is such a tranquil place and very relaxing, we brought a little sunshine along with us too so we could enjoy the view and also do a bit of train spotting. The hot tub was great, it did take a little while to heat on the first night so unable to use it but once heated we couldn’t stay out of it. We went to the Rising Sun down the road for dinner which was lovely hot food and friendly staff, they also do takeaway woodfire pizza which you can bring back to the shepherds hut so you can enjoy the view while eating dinner which was fab! We loved the wood burner within the hut, it created some great heat which allowed us to feel very comfortable especially when the air outside was cold, they leave you everything you need to do this and extra within the log store with an honesty box if you would like some more. Overall, it was such a great trip to relax and only a short drive away from some fantastic beaches, we will definitely be back and recommend to family and friends.
