I booked this last september for my wifes birthday ( which is in September) and we stayed this weekend , but boy was it worth the wait, amazing place .
Fabulous location, just turn up and unplug , so peaceful , the hosts Rachel and Haydon make you feel like their best friends.
They have put a lot of effort and you want for nothing .
The hut is sooooo quirky!
The shower room is brilliant.
Just a stones throw from Eyam centre , beautiful place , really really friendly people, not your usual village full of holiday lets and second homes.
The Bulls Head in foolow was lovely , and even offered us a lift home ( to the hut , not leeds:).
The Indian in Hathersage was stunning, and they too offer a lift back to the Hut.
The hosts of the Hut were really accommodating and genuinely lovely people.
The breakfast was to die for.
Very very thoughtful.
I'm going to wrap it up now because i would go on all night.
We want to keep it a secret , but looking at the available dates in the future , i think the secret is out.
And a thumbs up
Stayed at this gem of a find for one night after reading the rave reviews on here . We weren't disappointed !
Beautifully decorated with great attention to detail . We really couldn't fault this place . Booked as a surprise Birthday treat for my partner, Rachel, the owner even put a " Happy Birthday " bunting up inside .
Perfectly located in a pretty historic village, we spent the evening snuggled around the fire pit, after eating a great meal at a little pub recommended by Rachel . Listening to owls hooting, and enjoying a glass or two of something cold beside a crackling fire was idyllic .
The shower/bathroom facilities are a short walk up the garden, but this really wasn't a problem . Rachel and her family were unobtrusive hosts , yet we felt they would be readily available if we needed any assistance . All in all, a fantastic nights stay, that we would both highly recommend ( and I don't do camping, or glamping, or any accomodation that doesn't have four stars attached to it as a bare minimum !)
Try it . You won't regret it !!
Beautifully decorated with lovely accessories and furniture. The log burner also keeps it warm and snuggley. The bathroom facilities are a little walk up the garden (not ideal when you need a wee late at night) but are nice and clean. The whole place is beautifully relaxing and perfect if you want to get away from everything, but without sacrificing too many creature comforts. My only suggestion would be to have a jug of water, kettle and tea and coffee in the hut itself to save walking up to the bathroom for a drink.
Rachel is lovely and very helpful if you need any local recommendations for food and things to do. Wish we could have stayed longer - one night wasn't enough.
The shepherd's hut is enchanting and the area is idyllic! Rachel and Haiden (and their dog Basil) are so friendly and helpful. We travelled by train and they offered to pick us up at the station. They also gave us lifts to the pub!
In the morning the breakfast hamper is delivered to the door. It has fresh coffee, cereal and little kilner jars with fresh berries, honey and yogurt! The weather was glorious so we were able to eat outside in the wonderful grounds. There are amazing walks and the village has an interesting past. We highly recommend it!!!!
