“My lovely birthday break!!!!”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

I have been wanting to stay in a shepherd's hut for more than a year now and I can't believe my partner has found such a fabulous one to stay on my birthday!!! It has everything one can need. The owner has really thought of EVERYTHING!!!The weather wasn't good (the wind was extremely high) but we still enjoyed the stay and the cosyness :) I was very much surprised to find such a spacious shower in it! I honestly love it and will probably try to go there again. I definitely agree that it is the Hilton of Huts!!!!
Thanks again!!!

“PERFECT IN EVERY WAY”
Reviewed June 2, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Using the word "hut" seems to do it an injustice.
It is just super,it is spotless everything has been thought of inside to make your stay enjoyable.
The shower is very very good.
The quality from the towels to cutlery is 1st class,the towels smell divine.
The setting I do not think you can beat,you can watch the antics of the pigs for hours.
Great hosts,great location we will be returning

“Best Hut Yet”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My hubby and I love a shepherds hut and have stayed in a quite a few, however this is the best on yet. Love the village and the general location loads to do, The owners are lovely and friendly, there if you need them but not in your face, All the animals are great, pigs, dog and cats are friendly and make a stay to remember. The hut itself is warm and cosy, it was cold outside when we visited in March yet not inside our little retreat. Everything you need and more. Coming back soon......

“A cosy little hideaway in the Dales!”
Reviewed March 16, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The Shepherd's Retreat hut is a great place to spend a few nights to explore the Dales and other parts of North Yorkshire. Ripon, Masham and several other little villages are easily accessible with a 20-30 minute walk or a short drive. Great pub down the road in Grewelthorpe called The Crown which does awesome food, massive portions and really good local beers too. The landlord and lady from the pub couldn't have been more helpful and did us some great food really late on when it probably wasn't ideal.

The cabin is great, it has everything you could need for a weekend away. No problems with the cold (which it was very when we went) as there is a little electric heater that heats the whole thing up really quickly. The bed is very comfortable and plenty of room, I'm not the smallest person and it was absolutely fine for me and my gf. The pigs were great, quite funny to watch them pottering round and no hassle getting the car out past them with the use of an apple as a distraction!

Would definitely go back and would definitely recommend to other couples looking for a cosy retreat for a night or two in the Dales!
