This was a wonderful find. A last minute reservation, I contacted the owner Sue who was immediately accommodating. I was attending a party nearby so Sue suggested I take the Shepherds Hut outside the house, where I had my own key and could come back without disturbing anyone else.
What I had no idea about was that the Hut is in fact a wonderfully modern and beautifully designed haven of your own - with wood stove, high quality shower and bathroom and an ultra comfy bed. I couldn't have been happier.
Sue's breakfast was grease free and cooked to perfection - leaving me happy and content rather than feeling a bit guilty, as I often do after those kind of meals.
On top of the beautiful accommodation, the cleanliness of the house in general and the great food - it was the welcome that made me really love it.
I intend to bring my senior management team with me on a trip soon - it was THAT GOOD.
