Just perfect if you are looking for peace and quiet, rest and relaxation. The Shepherds hut was lovely, had everything you could possibly need and was surprisingly spacious, with a lovely comfortable, large double bed. Ideally located for lots of lovely walks and only around a 45 minute drive to the coast. Couldn't fault it, we had a fabulous time.
