We had a peaceful and relaxing stay at the beautiful shepherds hut for New Year! The Hut was perfectly decorated, clean and equipped with a log fire and everything we needed to relax! The hot tub was great – clear instructions and perfect to relax through the new year!

We would really recommend staying here, it’s perfect for couples, with excellent self catering facilities but also with great restaurants nearby in the villages!

Thanks so much!
