“Amazing secluded weekend get away”
Reviewed 3 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Polly was an AMAZING host, leaving locally sourced treats there ready for us and always on hand to help/for questions. The Shepherd's Hide is kitted out to a really high spec and has everything you could possibly need included eco-friendly bath products. The Shepherd's Hide is located on the edge of a lake set back from some trees so it is totally private - it's in a quiet location and we had a lovely walk along the river to a town near by. It's only an hour and a half from London and absolutely perfect if you just want to get away form it all. Best weekend away I've ever had. Would one-trillion percent recommend.

“Great getaway from London!”
Reviewed 21 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Had an awesome time staying at The Shepherds Hide! We were lucky enough to be the first couple that stayed at this very well set up accommodation, where the very friendly owners Polly and Mark have thought of and ensure we have everything to ensure our stay was comfortable. Highly recomended for couples that lives in London and just want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but don't want to have to travel too far. Fantastic set up!
