Our Shepherds Hut nestles into it's own space just next to the house, it has an ensuite shower etc, double bed and gorgeous west facing country views. Only a five minute walk from the centre of the village it is a haven of peace and tranquility. Please note we have a 2 night minimum stay for single occupancy.
The Shepherds hut is equipped with everything you need to make your stay great, There is a fully stocked hospitality tray with a range of teas, coffees and fresh milk, home made biscuits, fresh fruit and flowers. The shower has been praised as "the best this holiday" In the morning come over to the conservatory to enjoy a delicious breakfast, freshly squeezed orange juice, cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt. To follow, a choice of the full English breakfast, including our own hen's eggs cooked however you like them and toasted home made bread. The hut is really well insulated with sheep's wool keeping it warm in summer and cool in winter, however you are welcome to fire up the wood burning stove if you wanted it a bit warmer. There is no TV but free fast WiFi in the Shepherds hut and the conservatory.
Guests have access to the flourishing cottage garden and comfortable seating area facing west over open fields, a lovely, peaceful place to spend some time in the evening watching the sun set and listening to the birdsong. Guests are also welcome to use the conservatory, there are comfortable rattan chairs and also a large oak table where breakfast will be served.
Interaction with guests
I interact with guests as much or as little as they would like. I live in the house so am able to help with tourist advice and general enquiries but if people want to do their own thing that is fine too.
Other things to note
Take a look at what our guests have to say about us on Trip Advisor - Hope Cottage Tours. Please note we have a minimum of two nights stay for single occupancy.
We believe Hope Cottage to be a home away from home so would expect guests to behave in the same way as they would at home, i.e to feel relaxed and comfortable but treat people and property with respect.
