We had a short break at Heath Farm mid August. Having not experienced a Shepherds Hut before we did not know what to expect.The setting was lovely and peaceful with fields all around. The huts were comfortable and cosy but quite compact. The bed was comfortable but short if you are over 6ft could be a problem! There was a lovely welcome box waiting for us with wine, tea, coffee and biscuits. One suggestion would be a few more hooks in both huts especially the bathroom and maybe a shelf in the bathroom. We really enjoyed our stay, thank you Dan.

“Relaxing and peaceful stay”
Reviewed August 13, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We have just arrived home from our short stay at Heath retreat and we really enjoyed it.

Lovely idea/concept of staying in shepherd huts and was a very good alternative to the 'standard' hotel stay - quite unique!

We found the bed was very comfortable with quality bedding. Small but plenty of space for two! Shower and kitchen area very clean and well kept. Outdoor seating, BBQ and a hammock also provided which was nice for a summer evening.

Only ten min. Drive max to Cambridge centre which is full of many things to do and places to eat. CAU being one place we would really recommend, the food was amazing.

Dan could not have been more helpful with our booking and we thank you very much for having us!

...Our only improvement would be some more outdoor lights for the evening. Maybe more candles dotted around or even some fairy lights around the seating area? This would be a great touch when you want to sit out as it did get quite dark!

“The perfect getaway! ”
Reviewed August 12, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This was the perfect last minute getaway. The Shepherd huts are in great condition and have everything you need. The huts were spotless and comfortable, with a lovely outside area. We spent the evening sitting outside enjoying the peace and quiet - surrounded by fields.

If you are looking for a retreat and something a bit different, this is highly recommended!

“Shepherds Hut”

Just returned from short break. Absolutely wonderful. The huts are very well maintained and have everything you need. Quiet location, beautiful views. Even got a BBQ. The owners were very helpful and friendly but didn't intrude.

Would definitely recommend for a short, quiet, break.

This was a different experience and would recommend.

“Wonderful place and setting”
Reviewed May 31, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

These two Shepherds Huts provide the opportunity for a wonderful relaxing weekend. Both have been renovated to a high level and even having to step from the bedroom one to kitchen/bathroom one was no problem. Everything necessary has been provided - nice touch the little hamper - and the bed is comfortable. The context set in a garden and amongst field makes thus experience. We loved our two nights there and will return sometime.

“Perfection!!”

My partner and I Turned up to Heath Retreat to find that we are in the middle of the beautiful country side, everything we needed was provided including a bbq which we lit soon as we arrived,
Everything was up to high standard and very clean and tidy, Shepard huts were surprisingly really warm and comfortable :) continuous hot water for showers etc, lovely chilled evenings sat outside surrounded by beautiful views and the birds tweeting. Drive to Cambridge was only 10 minutes so we spent the day in Cambridge.
Would recommend it to anybody who would want a break from the children ha, No faults at all and I'll definitely be emailing Daniel K to stay in retreat again in the near future!
