Absolutely fantastic! The hut is so well equipped with everything you need. The views are stunning. The sheep are hilarious and the location was perfect, being close enough to the town and wonderful walks whilst being far enough away to get the most wonderful starry sky. We are definitely looking to visit again.

I would defiantly recommend taking wellies, the fields make for some lovely peaceful walks and the dog absolutely loved it but there are no walk ways ( cut grass verges) so the long grass and cow poo cannot be avoided. Take a sponge for washing up!

Absolutely delightful - a real find, and something very different. If you want a true rural retreat only 3 miles from a lovely town, this is it. The views are beautifully relaxing. The shower and toilet are surprisingly spacious and in no way primitive, and the woodburner is easy to light and manage; there is also an effective convector heater.
