Lovely shepherds hut, located in a peaceful and private, undisturbed area. Local shops within 5-10 minutes drive, as well as pubs. Paul was friendly, approachable and very easy to contact. He explained everything clearly and was happy to help. Paul even let us check in early and check out late, and provided us with extra material for the hot tub and log burner. We had difficulty in getting the fires going (would recommend bringing a lighter - match sticks are provided however we went through ALOT), but this may be due to the time of year we went (end of October). Shepherds hut was cosy, 2 ringing electric hob with small fridge, basic kitchen appliances provided. Hot water intermittently worked due to the flame outside going out (We did go to Shepherds oak when there was a storm). Llamas were in a field opposite the hut and we were able to feed them. Overall lovely experience and would recommend this shepherds hut to family and friends! ...

This was a beautiful getaway! Paul was a super host, he met us on arrival at a time convenient to us. Showed us around the grounds and hut. The location is perfect, the morning views are picture worthy and it is so peaceful. The Alpacas made a great interaction, Paul left some food to feed them. He was on hand when we needed some help lighting the fire for the hot tub, but he was with us in 5 mins to help and stayed so the us until he was happy that it fully going. The locations is also fantastic. You are 10/15 mins from the city amenities but when you are at The Shepards Oak it is extremely peaceful and you feel remote. Overall, the getaway was just perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone, we will be returning! ...

On arrival we were met by lovely friendly owners who explained everything regarding the wood fired hot tub etc . The Shepherds hut was so cosy and clean. Food was supplied to feed the Alpacas which was a lovely experience. The views of the countryside were amazing. It was so quiet and peaceful. If you want to stay somewhere and switch off from the outside world then this is the place for you. ...

So lovely! Really enjoyed our stay here very cosy. Paul was lovely and was very accommodating. 10/10 recommend

Lovely relaxing break at Shepherds Oak. Hosts Paul and Barbara are super friendly and helpful as were the team at classic cottages. Will definitely return in the future. Great views from the hut. Far enough away from everything to feel secluded and private, but just a short drive to lovely beaches, villages. ...
