Horseshoe Shepherds Lodge is an amazingly beautiful place to stay! The owners have put so many lovely touches throughout the lodge & there is nothing they need to add - it’s perfect ??

This Shepherd's Hut was incredible. We stayed for three nights and it was the most relaxing weekend!! Nikki and Spence were so welcoming and helpful. We needed a relaxing weekend and this is exactly what we got!! The local pub was a stones throw away and it was the best Sunday lunch we have had in a long time!!! Thank you Nikki and Spence this is exactly the break we were hoping for!!!...

Far exceeded our expectations, we throughly enjoyed our holiday in this fantastic shepherd's hut, ideal location, so peaceful and quiet, lovely local pub, choose this you will not be disappointed

If you are looking to stay somewhere a little different from usual but with all of the luxuries you require in a secluded spot but with village amenities, an authentic pub serving fantastic food and a small shop within walking distance, then definitely consider this little gem. The shepherds lodge is cleverly fitted out with luxury furnishings and the hot tub on the decking is the icing on the cake along with the very private outdoor space and views. My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and would have loved to stay longer. We enjoyed a lovely country walk from the lodge and saw red deer in the forest which was a bonus for me. We explored lots of beautiful villages and towns by car including Instow, Appledore and Clovelly but we were happy to spend a rainy afternoon in the lodge reading and watching the many varieties of birds in the garden as it was so cosy. I would recommend a 1 to 1 yoga session at the lodge with Sian whose details are given in the write up about the Shepherds Lodge. She will tailor the session to your ability and there was something very special about practicing yoga in privacy on a decking with such beautiful views and Sian is a lovely and unjudgemental lady. Thanks so much to Nikki and Spence the very welcoming owners for the fabulous welcome pack and for thinking of everything to make our stay so enjoyable. You have a wonderful place!...
