The shepherd's hut we stayed in exceeded our expectations it was beautifully done to a high standard, super cosy and private. It was well equipped with all you need even a cafetiere and champagne glasses and bucket, they had thought of everything. The hut stayed warm with central heating and even a cosy log burner. All the fixtures and fittings are high-end and look brand new, with a cosy bed to top it off and the rainfall shower was a lovely surprise too. It was in a great private location overlooking the forest. We visited Chepstow Castle during our visit which was only a 15 minute drive away. Would certainly recommend Betty the shepherd's hut and will be planning another trip.
The hut is very cosy and comfortable. A great place to relax while being in nature. There are a lot of deer around which is super cool.
The shepherds hut was very inviting on the inside with a vase of flowers, tea, coffee and biscuits provided, there was also central heating and a small wood burner incase needed.There were games, a welcome folder with interesting things to do in the area and a pull out table and benches from under the raised bed to eat at.The view over the forest from the window and porch was lovely and we could just see the River Severn glinting in the distance between the trees.It was very peaceful with just the calling of buzzards and owls echoing across the forest and seats were provided outside the hut and on the porch.The raised bed with the skylight was great and we enjoyed waking up to see birds flying in the sky above. There were many places of interest to visit around the area, we really enjoyed our stay.
The Lillian Shepherd’s Hut is gorgeous- perfectly situated and beautifully presented. The interior is as packed with character as it is with amenities, and it is immaculately clean. The linens were fresh and of high quality. In the bathroom, there was heavenly-scented hand soap, body wash and shampoo. The kitchen had everything one could ask for, and there was even a selection of board games. Clever design choices elevate the small space into something truly special, with a pull-out table and storage space under the bed, under-ledge lighting above it, and a skylight over that. Providing a window to the night sky and flooding the space with light in the morning, the skylight was my favourite feature, but I appreciated the smaller touches too, like there being milk in the fridge when I arrived and a torch recharging on a shelf by the door. I visited in the summer, but I shall definitely be returning in a colder season to check out the wood-burning stove! I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would recommend it to anyone looking for a cosy hideaway in the middle of ‘nowhere’ (whilst actually being very much ‘somewhere!’)
A fantastic stay in an amazing location close to nature.We loved going for walks in the Forest of Dean it is a beautiful area and we would definitely return
