We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this little gem of a shepherds hut. Situated on the banks of the upper Severn River. Awoke to the singing of birds every morning. Lovely walks from the cabin and plenty to see and do. Peter and Sharon the owners have created a wonderful garden that we were allowed to enjoy. We will definitely be back next year!
