Are you tired of the same old thing? This shepherds hut HASN’T got a colour TV, hairdryer, telephone or DVD player, but what it HAS got is something that cannot be quantified.

When you wake up in the morning, having had the most beautiful sleep on the ultra comfortable bed, all you can see is a rolling meadow running down to the River Cherwell. You can listen to the buzzards calling while they soar above, having heard nothing but owls hooting during the night. Just you and nature – nothing else.

Jennie and James

“Hi, just to say we had the most wonderful relaxing break with you, only down side was it was too short! .We thought everything was just perfect and hope to return for another recharge. Could you arrange piggies to visit next time?! Many thanks” from Jane and Pete.

“We are back now and looking at all the photos to remind us of our wonderful stay. – What a beautiful little treasured spot.
We had such a nice walk in the evening sunshine past Edgcote House and then a glass of wine in The Griffin. This morning we loved walking in the mist and then watching the sun come up.
The shower was fantastic and a whole new experience being semi-outdoors. We walked down to the river and watched hares running, which was brilliant. So as you can tell we loved every minute and will definitely be back very soon” P & J Ellis
