The Horseshoe Shepherd’s hut was truly delightful and we felt very privileged to be its first guests. Set in a lovely orchard we relished the tranquility and peace of the countryside and watching the birds and other wildlife surrounding us. The owners Nikki and Spence could not have been more friendly and helpful. The hut itself is beautifully finished to the highest standard and the hugely generous welcome pack of goodies included home made scones and bread and lots more besides. The village and surrounding area is stunning with several lovely pubs to eat out and despite being so rural it’s not far from the beaches and other popular tourist attractions should you wish to strike out. Would definitely recommend.
