My boyfriend and I stayed at Sally's Shepherd Hut last weekend and had a lovely relaxing break.
The location was very easy to find with great travel links.
The Shepherd Hut is small and cosy (very comfy bed) and with some sunshine we done quite a bit of BBQ'ing for breakfast and dinner. Plates and cutlery etc are provided but I recommend people maybe bring some BBQ'ing utensils if you plan to use it.
I would also really recommend a chippy from the Saturday evening chip van across from the local shop! Delicious!
A short drive to the beach which was ideal for dog walking and the hut it's self had a large garden which was great for Dexter.
The toilet and shower space was ideal. A very short walk from the hut but not an issue at all! Would definitely recommend as a simple, relaxing break.

We had a lovely night's stay before going off to visit Wells and Weston for the day. Great peaceful position and we were warm and cosy in the hut. Loved the shabby chic. However we didn't take towels as we read in another review that they were supplied so we couldn't use the shower in the potting shed.

This was something different to anything I've stayed in before and i wouldn't hesitate about coming back! The hut itself had everything you needed for a short stay with a lot of attention to detail - it was the little touches that made the stay so nice. The wood burner was charming and the bed was large and comfy with lots of pillow and comfy sheets. Sweet little touches like milk in the bucket and breakfast hamper in the morning made going to work Monday very painful indeed! Would definitely come back again!

I stayed for two nights in this lovely Shepherds hut. It is beautifully put together with a lovely big comfy bed. It has some lovely features - pretty curtains, bedding and cushions. Lots of windows and the cutest smallest log burner I've ever seen that warmed it up just nicely in the evening and early morning.

I stayed with two small dogs who had a great time as it is situated in a secure large garden.

The shower and toilet are just a stones throw away.

I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to stay somewhere different.

Liked best: It was very different - a bit like Glamping but in a a nice secluded space.
Liked least: Nothing much, you should not expect hotel standards but then again you wouldn't stay here if that's what you preferred.

I was looking forward to staying in the Shepherds Hut as it looked lovely on the photos. It exceeded my expectations. Sally the owner has really given a lot of attention to detail and its a real homely place to stay. The hut has a kettle, toaster, crockery and cutlery for two. The bed was so comfy with high quality bed linen and a nice warm duvet. There is plenty of wood for the log burner to keep you warm.which we needed as it was early March when we stayed so still a.little chilly outside. There are instructions on where the local shop and pubs are located.The bathroom is a short walk across the field to the hut and the shower is a proper shower cubicle (I was expecting showers like on campsites) and the bathroom was very clean at all times.

We are hoping to return in the summer months for a few nights to get full benefit of the views the bbq and the fire pit. Thankyou Sally for making us welcome.
