"It is an idyllic place for a peaceful weekend away"

I really enjoyed the weekend with my partner away from the busy streets of London. The shepherd's hut was beautifully designed and very well kitted out for cooking light meals. The weather was lovely too.

We booked the shepherds hut for two nights this July. It did not disappoint. Phil greeted us and showed us exactly what we needed to know. Full tour of the little farm (piglets adorable) And he made s… More

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay! You caught us in the middle of a wet and sunny growing season and are quite right to suggest that the grass around the hut should be maintained - it is usually! We have also replaced the garden furniture for new because as you suggest the old furniture had seen better days. A highlight of any trip to the farm should be spending time sitting outside in the field and we hope you will return again to do so.

"Lovely hut"
