Our stay at The Whistle was pure perfection, we couldn't have asked for anything more and the hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful. Everything exceeded our expectations, we would love to return again in the future.

A lovely break away to recharge.

No need to pack body wash, shampoo & conditioner as provided

In addition to the hot tub being warm & ready, it was lovely to be welcomed with cider, wine, milk & yummy homemade brownies

We had never stayed in a hut before so i booked it for my partners 30th and we had such a relaxing experience. The owners where amazing and provided everything you need. The views are beautiful along with the sheep and lambs as your neighbours. Couldn’t of asked for better. Everyone needs to experience this hut. Make sure you get in the hot tub and star gaze. Or wait for sunrise. Thankyou again Nick & Sally. We will definitely be returning ...

Beautiful setting, fab that you can have the hot tub heated ready for your arrival. The pizza oven was so much fun to use!

Everything was perfect. Peaceful farm with a few horses and sheep as company. Lovely pub locally. So nice to sit outside by the fire and in the hot tub
