We were looking for a break away with a difference and this was definitely it! The crook is small but perfectly formed. It has everything you could need and with underfloor heating it was so cosy for an October stay. There is a well uplaced bird table out in the garden at the back of the crook and you can watch the birds through the window.The ensuite was perfect, no trudging across the field to go to the loo! The owner is very helpful and answered our questions about the crook and surrounding area, giving us tips on where to eat. There is plenty to do in Framlingham and there are leaflets in the crook to give you some inspiration. We loved our time here and will definitely will be returning.
Richard and Becky were fantastically supportive during our stay and have kitted this hut out with everything you could possible need; from the fire pit and BBQ to the in-hut games, all these little touches made it the perfect countryside retreat.
Delicious local hamper and wonderful recommendations for things to do, we'll definitely be coming back to Shepherd's Crook (and telling all of our friends!)
We felt lucky to find this accommodation for a 2-night stay at short notice to be able to attend the Aldeburgh music festival.
Don't be put off by the rustic external appearance, although for us it was part of its charm.
It has all the facilities you need for a relaxing break, and what is provided is of good quality.
It offers tranquillity and privacy - we particularly enjoyed sitting outside using the table and chairs with a view over fields in the evening; and also in our pyjamas for breakfast.
Richard and Becky are very friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to ensure we had a comfortable stay.
Shepherd's Crook is absolutely beautiful. The hut is gorgeous, the surroundings are peaceful, and the owners warm, friendly and helpful. The hut itself has everything you would need and more - everything last thing has been thought of - including a crummy breakfast and wine and chocolate!! We especially enjoyed hot chocolate round the firepit in the evenings. We can't recommend it high enough!

We came Friday night in spring and Beccy and Richard were so hospitable that the next day they let us leave our bikes en site and over night.
We arrived when it was cold outside but the underfloor heating In the hut and fully working shower took the chills away as did the generous welcome pack with a bottle of prosecco!
The hut itself is such a great use of space,brilliantly designed with cupboards , kitchen, full en suite - it's luxurious, comfy, romantic and there are enough sheep to count to send you to sleep!
It's set amidst a beautiful coppice, with lavender plants, wild flowers and a view through to the next field where rabbits gambol in the morning sun and the friendly pheasants play. Beccy and Richard were the perfect hosts. They were undeterred by our lactose intolerant pescatarian predelictions (aka we're a pain for brekkie) they made sure v kindly we had brunch ingredients which fully accommodated our needs (with some extras) which we cooked in the hut easily in the more than adequate kitchen, whilst leaving the doors and windows open to enjoy the tranquility and pretty sunny and secluded spot the hut is set-in. The whole set-up is magical and nearby there are great bike rides, walks, a 12th century castle and the famous aldeburgh festival and shops at snape maltings. I would deffo recommend this cleverly converted hut and its kindly hosts, I just wish we'd been able to stay longer! We'll be back! A&R x
