Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Great weekend away
Great place to stay for a romantic weekend, fantastic views and lots of walking in the area. Hut was very cozy and had everything you'd need to have breakfast/lunch/dinner. Really warm with the electric heater and heated blanket. Communication from the hosts was great and would really recommend staying here.

Fantastic short break
Location is ideal for picturesque walking and very close to a lovely pub serving fantastic food. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The Shepherds Hut was clean and tidy and the log burner was great. We had a great time and would definitely return in the future.

Amazing!
I booked this for a week for my parents - they absolutely loved it! It was scrupulously clean and very comfortable. The welcoming hamper was a lovely touch. They want to go back!

Amazing stay in a quirky property
We stayed here for one night while visiting family nearby and had everything we could need - comfortable bed, tea and coffee, plus a box of goodies inlcuding bread and marmalade. Wonderfully quiet location, with the hut just looking out onto the hills. It was too warm to have the log-burner going when we were there but imagine it would be a lovely little hideaway in winter too.

Had a lovely one night stay as a couple with two dogs. Made welcome on arrival , a lovely hamper of goodies waiting. Peaceful little spot in beautiful countryside. The shepherds hut is a little gem with everything you could need for your stay. You can't help but relax, delightful.

Excellent mini breaj
We stayed at the Shepards hut for two nights with our dog. The hut is fab! Very clean and has everything you need utensils, pans etc. We BBQ'd on both nights however there are a few pubs close by. The shower room was very clean and the hamper we received on arrival was lovely! Would definitely stay again we loved it! Thanks again Joanne! Xx

Perfect peaceful getaway
We absolutely loved the shepherds hut. It was easy to find and the scenery was beautiful. We were met by the owners who showed us around then let us be. We were greeted by a little hamper with wine, bread, eggs, fruit loaf, water and other little treats in which was a really nice touch. The hut has everything you need (even wifi!) we had ourselves a bbq then watched the sunset under a blanket on the furniture outside the hut then had a peaceful comfy nights sleep! Will definitely stay again thank you Joanne and co :)

Lovely Break
Thank you to Joanne and Andy for a lovely couple of days with our 2 dogs. Warm as toast in the shepherds Hut, lovely and clean and a fab hamper on arrival. No phone signals and intermittent wifi. Only little downside was the midgey bites, which we both suffered, take some repellent. Wild deer as well as horses all came to have a look at us in camp.
