My Partner and I stayed in Shepherds Keep for 3 nights over Valentines 2017. Truly magical escape! All the added extra touches made this already beautiful Shepherds Hut into a romantically magical hide away ❤

A beautiful setting, great views, quiet and the personal touches are amazing. I booked this for my boyfriend as a suprise for our first year together....his face was a picture when we arrived. It was so perfect. On our arrival we found the radio playing and the lamp on....it was so cosy. We had chance the next day to use...

Lovely hut. The finishing touches are amazing. We purchased the towel bale which was beautifully wrapped with ribbon. We had a storm the weekend we were there but felt very cosy in the hut. I plan to come back in the summer to have longer days and make use of the bbq pit and fire pit.

These shepherds huts are a great way to get away from it all. Each is screened from its neighbour for total privacy. We stayed in Shepherds Watch for 4 nights which was just right. The fire pit is great to sit around and gaze at the stars over a glass of wine. The showers are very good. The cooker is...

Everything you need is in the hut, even down to the metal skewers for toasting the complemtary marshmallows on the fire pit in the garden. We saw deer feeding every...

We stayed at the lovely Shepherds Watch. The view of the lake from our hut was beautiful. The hut was well equipped and very cosy, we loved the nook! The table and chairs were well used for eating and relaxing in the sunshine. The BBQ / toasting marshmallow area was an added bonus. We traveled around the local area and...

Booked a midweek break here for our 30th wedding anniversary. Loved it! Stunning for birds, overlooking large lake, we say Wrens, herons, variety of ducks, little grebe, more hen, woodpeckers, kingfishers and a mole! We couldn't wait to get back, light the fire pit and watch the world go by. Well placed for visiting local area, but so peaceful and...

Just returned from 2 nights at the Shepherds Hut Retreat. What an amazing place. As we drove in we were greeted by two deer in the field just yards away from us, who were regular visitors throughout our stay. We stayed in Shepherds Keep hut which was just beautiful. Well stocked with everything you need from cooking utensils to DVD's...
