February 2018

We want to say thank you to Dave and Vicki for letting us use your little retreat in the heart of Ottery St Mary, we had the most fantastic time and came away well and truly relaxed. The facilities at Otters Holt Sheperds Hut exceeded our expectations, the little hamper of necesssities is a cute added extra and was very unexpected. The bed was very comfortable and the jacuzzi was fabulous! We cannot wait to return.

My boyfriend and I stayed here and we had an amazing few days! The hut, surroundings, hot tub and surrounding towns were amazing! We enjoyed going over to the farm and seeing the general day to day running, it was very insightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay st Otters Holt! Thank you so much for making our stay memorable!

Otter's Holt was a perfect setting for a weekend away with my boyfriend, we loved every second of being there and wished for it not to end! Vicki and Dave were very helpful and lovely hosts. The Hut was beautifully decorated and everything was thought of to cater for our basic needs. Only thing that would have been useful was a plug socket or adapter for my hairdryer :) the hot tub was a big bonus along with the beautiful country surroundings in which to explore and relax in. A really lovely and relaxed weekend in all!

We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your break in the shepherd's hut - it's great to be able to truly relax. The electricity is run from a solar panel system so quite happily powers the lights (the mini oven, hob and fridge are run on gas) but something like a hairdryer would be a little to much for the circuits so we ask guests to embrace the glamping lifestyle and go for the natural look during their stay!

We loved our stay! The hut was gorgeous and the perfect base for us and our little girl. It was well thought out and had relaxing, calming decor which perfectly complemented the idyllic countryside setting. The hot tub was a wonderful bonus as it enabled us to enjoy the surrounding views even though the weather wasn't as warm as we had hoped, but even so the weather didn't totally spoil our stay as the Hut was surprisingly warm and this made for a cosy feel! It shows that a Shepherd's Hut holiday need not depend on weather, despite being in the middle of a field! In fact, the location felt secluded and yet easily accessible from the road so it was perfect!

I'd like to have been able to plug my hairdryer in and the addition of a toaster or microwave for greater ease might have been handy but these are just minor points and didn't impact upon our enjoyment of our Shepherd's Hut experience!

We loved the Honesty Shop too - fab idea!

Have already recommended to friends! Classic Cottages made booking very easy and we felt confident with the process. It was good to receive a little printed pack in the post, for added reassurance.

Thumbs up for a very positive experience all round
