We stayed at The Ginger Nut in October for our anniversary. It was lovely to arrive and have a nice bottle of fizz waiting and the hot tub ready to go!
The hut was the perfect size and had everything we needed. We walked into the village and everyone at the locals were really friendly.
Would definitely recommend- hosts were lovely and very responsive. 🙂

What a fantastic place to stay. Beautiful Shepherds hut close enough to drive into the local town but far enough away to feel you are really one with nature. Would highly recommend!

This Shepherds Hut was one of the nicest holidays I’ve had in the UK, it was very clean, had everything we would need (towels, bath mat, cutlery etc..) and was in a great location with a shop/petrol station 30 seconds down the road. The hospitality from the owners was amazing and they helped us with anything we needed. It was 10/10 would recommend to anybody!
