Why not enjoy a 7 course Tasting menu (by reservation only - £32.95 per person) at Upper Rectory Restaurant, afterwards you can gaze at the stars from outside the Shepherd's Hut,for romantic evenings why not light the little hobbit stove. A beautiful, hand made Welsh woolen blanket drapes the comfortable 4'6' by 6 foot bed, over luxurious cotton sheet and antique duvet cover, which makes the most of the triple aspect views. Please feel free to explore our garden and veg patch. There is a traditional outhouse adjacent to the Shepherd's Hut, with a composting toilet and hand basin, with hot and cold water and electric light. New for 2019, our fantastic off grid Eco kitchen where light meals can be prepared with all the basic cutlery, crockery, pots & pans etc. There is a two ring gas camping stove with grill. A small trot from the paddock is the new heated wet room with lashings of hot water from an electric shower. Please ensure that you inform us what time you will be arriving so we can light the wood burner prior to your arrival!

It's a lovely setting, away from the rat race. Don't get me wrong it is basic, but once you get over that little hurdle it's great. And the price kind of shows that is hasn't got all the mod cons. Compost toilet for example. But...More
