Four large and luxurious Shepherds Huts set around a beautiful lake full of wildlife. Each hut has its own private garden with bbq, firepit and a decking or patio. Inside you get a hotel-style shower room, fully equipped country kitchen and comfy bed/lounge area with books, games and dvd player. There is also a woodland sauna with outdoor shower on site and to top it all off you can visit the award-winning gastro-pub before returning to toast marshmallows on the fire pit.

In need of a break and recharge my batteries I spent a glorious 3 nights at Shepherds Delight. Everything I needed was provide including stunning location peace and quiet. Relaxing in the woodland sauna was a particular favourite and I even braved a cold shower afterwards!

Carlsberg don't do shepherds hut holidays, but if they did......they would still be rubbish compared to The Shepard hut retreat!! Every little detail about the hut we stayed in was perfect, from the furnishings to the facilities, from the location to the little fairy lights

There is not much more to add to previous reviews. We stayed in the Shepherds Watch, lovely view of the lake, very quiet and although there are three other huts near by we never heard or saw anyone else. Nice touch with a welcome bottle of wine, milk, tea and coffee also

Hi, its generally a quiet area but there are nice restaurants/pubs, you would need to go to a larger town such as bridport which is a 3o min drive for lively celebrations.
