Lovey shepherds hut
We spent three nights staying at Gertrude recently. It was warm, cosy, own bathroom was nice to have and cooking facilities. We liked the location and it was relaxed and quiet. Angela the owner was very helpful and couldn’t do enough to make our stay special.
Thank you for your kind review Sue, it is very much appreciated and we do hope that you will consider visiting us again sometime.

Quiet and scenic
Cosy shepherds hut, with clean facilities nearby in a pretty meadow - we recommended it to our families too after staying, and will probably be back ourselves! Thanks very much to Angela, who was a great host.
It was a pleasure to host you Dan and we appreciate your feedback, thank you.
Fantastic place for a getaway
We stayed in Sheperd’s hut Gertrude for a couple of nights over a (mostly) sunny and warm weekend. The hut and amenities were very well thought out, provided all we needed and what lovely hosts too! A great place for a getaway.
It was a pleasure to host you Sabrina - come again !
We absolutely loved it here. Hut was so well equipped, really had everything we needed and more! Was so cute too and well maintained. Hosts were good to communicate with before arrival and friendly and helpful when we were on site. Site is peaceful and well located. Hope to return soon!
