The cottage is the best place I have stayed ever in the UK. The surroundings were amazing, the sound of the river was unreal and the birds in the morning with the view was unbelievable.

Fantastic, cosy little hut, the fresh eggs and cake for when we arrived were a lovely touch. The bed is so comfy, we slept in late most mornings as we didn't want to get out of it. There's plenty of storage under it too for bags. We were worried about using the eco toilet but it wasn't a problem to use. Having the log fire crackling away while the Read morerain lashed down outside made everything seem cosier so don't be put off by a winter stay. We'll definitely be staying again ourselves. Hide

The shepherds hut was incredible. The owner is very friendly and shows you round the hut and shows you all its features. She also made cake for us which was delicious. the hut is heated by a log burner and underfloor heating, we stayed at the end of storm Denis and if anything we were too warm. it was really windy outside but the hut was well soundRead more proofed so you couldnt really hear it. Another massive bonus was the night sky. If you get a clear night, sit outside and just look up! Hide

What a beautiful little cottage, nestled in a picturesque valley next to the river Severn. The owners are incredibly welcoming, with cake, milk and fresh eggs from their chickens. Their garden is exceptional and has clearly taken nigh on thousands of hours of work. We'd return in a blink!
