We absolutely loved our stay in the Rose Shepherd hut. This was five star ‘shepherd hutting’ and it exceeded our expectations! Thank you for the wonderful service from start to finish. We will be back again for sure – who can resist waking up to that view and watching it from the hot tub! Truly amazing!

We had a fantastic 3 night break staying in Rose. Everything we needed was provided, the hot tub was very nice even in the rain and to top it off the underfloor heating was a real winner for both ourselves and our dog Ralph. The log burner was a nice touch too. I’d highly recommend staying here and would definitely book another visit.

Very clean and tidy, located in the most perfect area, plenty to do and see!
Hot tub was amazing and also had your own garden which was fenced of so that your furry friend can be free and do their own thing. Simply great!
LOVELY little stay

What a LOVELY little hut perfect for a staycation. Everything was so cosy & comfortable & of such a high quality. We loved the enclosed garden for our dog & the decking & the hot tub for us to sit & relax.
Only thing we would need as an extra would be some instructions with using the microwave/grill & the hob as this took us some time to work out.
Everything was just what we hoped it would be & we are already looking to return again. Thank you lots!

Excellent. 2 nights was the perfect length of stay and the anniversary package was an added bonus and worth the extra cost! The hut had everything we needed. The enclosed garden was a dream for our two 5 month old puppies, the zoomies and fetch games were amazing! If I was really picky, the blue sensor for the outdoor light lit up the room too much during the night and the underfloor heating would get very hot on times, but all in all, we will definitely be back! Thank you.
