Mr Ashdown September 2021
We loved the hut and very helpful owners who supplied a lot of extra resources to start the holiday off with which we were not expecting and had indeed brought with us in some cases, so this was a very nice surprise. We used all the facilities including the tennis, pitch(not much putting) holes the BBQ every day, firepit and of course the excellent hot tub. The explanations by the owners of all the facilities and fixtures was informative and we had no issues with using these.
We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to all plus we would love to come back again.
Mrs Codling August 2021
We’ve found a little gem!! Fantastic property, exceptionally clean and very private. We loved the outdoor space, especially of an evening - barbecuing, hot tub and drinks on the patio area.
For such a compact space, the property contained everything you need, plus a few extras. The owners were there to greet us and provided recommendations for eateries and day trips.
A perfect week away
Mrs Digennaro August 2021

Couldn’t have asked for anything more!
Mrs Bowie July 2021
This property exceeded our expectations, it was amazing. The owners were very friendly but not intrusive. They supplied tea coffee sugar milk orange juice and Prosecco. The hot tub was perfect and the the area was very relaxing.
Kendall July 2021
The Shepherds Hut was out of this world, exceeded on expectations on all counts. The setting was beautiful, clean and may I say more spacious than expected bearing in mind it was a shepherds hut. The owners were amazing, friendly and often helped us out as and when required. They even came to the rescue when we need an HDMI cable (left at home) for our outdoor projector. We could not fault our stay, weather or location. We will definitely be back. Many thanks to Robert & Tina for an outstanding holiday home.
Mr Lockyer July 2021
The most beautiful shephards hut, every detail was so well though out. Such a cosy and comfortable hut, highly recommended. The owners are a joy to talk to aswell, very welcoming and take pride in what they offer.
Mrs Ahir July 2021
A beautiful area! Lots of lovely restaurants around the area. Stunning beaches (Elberry Cove was a favourite) There's an amazing model village nearby and the zoo isn't far either. The hot tub is great especially at night time. Loved cooking in the shepherd's hut and not having an oven wasn't a problem. There's nice takeaways around the area too. The shepherd's hut is so cute in the way it's furnished it's a perfect spot! Would highly recommend for holidays. We went for our honeymoon and it felt so relaxed!
Miss Wyatt June 2021
Me and my boyfriend had a lovely break away, was truly needed. This was the best Shepard’s hut we have stayed in, everything provided even things you didn’t think you’d end up needing! It was very clean, and loved the hut, very airy and clean feeling in the day. Very cosy at night. Hot tub and bbq were very good. Excellent hosts. Would defiantly recommend to anyone and would come back.
Mrs Chadwick June 2021

We had a wonderful time, it was the perfect escape for the weekend. The hosts exceeded our expectations! We would definitely visit again.
Mrs O'Farrell May 2021
We booked our stay at Crannaford Shepherds Hut as a child free break (to celebrate surviving the past 12 months of lockdowns and home schooling)!
Our stay was wonderful and we were given a very warm welcome and great little tour by the owner, Robert. The Sheperds Hut is so well equipped and cosy, especially with the mini log burner on in the evenings. We managed to dodge the showers when touring the area and made our way back to spend sometime relaxing in the hot tub, it was a fantastic experience watching the wonderful wildlife until the stars came out and we were surrounded by the pretty led lights.
If your looking for a relaxing break with a difference then Crannaford Sheperds Hut is the place for you.
Mrs Van Dyck May 2021
Crannaford Shepherd's hut is delightful set in a peaceful, private location. The hot tub is the perfect place to unwind. I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay.
Miss Apicella May 2021
Crannaford Shepherds hut was everything that we could have hoped for and more. The little extras like the fire pit and basic amenities in the fridge added a great touch. Lovely hosts, great surroundings and privacy. We couldn’t have asked for a more relaxing holiday. I’m grateful to have spent so much time on choosing our holiday destination, as the Crannaford Shepherds hut is a true hidden gem.

WOW! This fabulous property, along with it's charming hosts is absolutely wonderful in every way. The Shepherd's Hut is set in a stunning location which is both private and peaceful and it is beautifully made and spotlessly clean. The hosts have thought of everything to make your stay as perfect as possible. We had a wonderful 4 night stay here and have already recommended to friends and we look forward to returning ourselves. We enjoyed every second of our stay and even bought some binoculars while we were there to enable us to identify the many birds that we saw. Thank you for everything including the Prosecco and treats!

Mr Hone June 2019
Wonderful shepherds hut we were very pleasantly surprised, we couldn’t of asked for anything more.
Ms Winter June 2019
a beautiful and tranquil setting. We were not in the least bothered by noise which we had been told might be possible from the nearby solar panels. It was wonderful to wake up to birdsong each morning and to see so many varieties of wildlife literally from my bed.
Our hosts were welcoming, an excellent introduction to all the interior workings of the shepherds hut and a lovely welcome package of Prosecco, strawberries, bread, milk, butter cream and biscuits.
We were left in peace but knew our hosts were nearby to deal with any problems - of which there were none! Very happy with this break and would definitely recommend.

Mr Walsham May 2019
The Shepherds hut is a beautiful retreat, superbly equipped and certainly more luxurious than we expected from a 'hut'! The hosts are friendly and welcoming without being interfering or over-eager. they are more than happy to explain any part of the hut that might be unusual to some - the hobbit log burner, the induction hob, the camping toilet, the hot-tub! There are a few local places to visit which are definitely worthwhile, so I'd certainly stay again without hesitation.
Ms Felton May 2019
We had the most wonderful time at Crannaford, the accommodation was everything we were looking for and more, the hosts were incredibly generous and welcoming providing numerous added extras that were a lovely touch, and being available if anything was needed. All we needed to do was turn up and relax. We've stayed in many similar places and there are always a few disappointments but this place exceeded our expectations. We'd highly recommend it!
