Happy but disappointed!!!!
There are 2 parts to my review. The first part regarding the stay..... The Shepherds hut is lovely, done to a good standard with amazing views over the hills and had an undercover hot tub. Set up on a hill in the peace and quiet, you couldn?t ask for more. We loved it so much so that on the way home we were looking to book again...... This takes me onto the 2nd part of my review...... We paid ?414 for 3 nights, the same 3 nights next year and the owners want £1100!!!! Yes you read correctly £1100!!! The price has trippled! Now like most things I expect an increase year on year but to treble the price blew my mind. I felt at ?414 it was priced about right, you can imagine my shock at seeing £1100!! This is not just for a the weekend I wanted in September. Every 3 night stay from about the end of March to the end of October is around the £1100 mark! Now dont get me wrong its nice but certainly not worth anywhere near that. I rang Sykes Cottages who confirmed that the owners had increased their prices. For me there are as nice if not nicer Shepherds huts around for a hell of alot less. Seems to me the owners have become greedy and possibly thinking people will be staying in UK next year aswell due to Covid-19. In a nutshell, lovely accommodation, very relaxing but feel the owners are taking advantage. I won?t be paying that amount thats for sure!!!!

If you need a quiet break this is the one!
Absolutely amazing.. Due to covid the gentleman David apologised for not being able to offer the usual warm welcome bless him.. For a woman who has ocd I haven't had to look twice the cleanliness is outstanding the shepherds pie is scrumptious.. And it is so private we will definitely be booking again
