Brilliant location combined with a lovely Shepherd's Hut on the edge of a rural farm. Surprisingly spacious and warm, even on the coldest night and a perfect alternative to a caravan etc

The Shepherds hut was fabulous looked exactly like the pictures and had been decorated up all Christmassy. Sitting outside all wrapped up and watching the sun going down over the hills then going into the hut with the fire going and curling up with a book listening to the radio was so warm and cosy. Waking up in the mornings with the sheep looking Read morethough the fence whilst I drank my coffee. I am feeling very calm and relaxed and ready for the coming December madness. I will definitely go back Hide

Well fitted. Neat and tidy with everything in its place. Partially sheltered setting to rear and panoramic views to front. Car parking just a few yards away. Steps up to split entrance door. This was useful for ventilation in the warm temperatures experienced. Proved to be more than adequate for interior space with some good design features.

A real get away from the rat race. Peace and quiet and beautiful views and walks nearby.

Beautifully appointed and superbly equipped shepherd's hut with amazing views in an idyllic location. Friendly owners, delicious Shrewsbury biscuits and croissants were much appreciated. Small (obviously!) but cosy and cleverly laid out to make the most of the space. Log burner was great on some rather chilly days in May!

The shepherds hut and indeed the farm attached to it was superb. Beautiful area, full nature and wildlife. Remote, yet 10 mins drive to Ludlow. Would recommend to anyone who wants a few days away from the trappings of a busy life.

We had a really wonderful stay in this little hideaway. It has everything you need to switch off and appreciate nature. We had a storm and strong rain and loved listening to the rain on the roof and the log burner just made it magical.

Really lovely shepherds hut. Fabulous spot, the view is even better than the picture. Ludlow is lovely and great walking locally. As a last minute booking I found this with my daughter but imagine it would be perfect for a romantic weekend away.

Set in pastoral area with views of the Shropshire countryside. This is a beautifully appointed shepherds hut with a comfortable bed. Ludlow is three to four miles away and is a fascinating town to wander around. This is a perfect get away place.
