“When can we come back?”
Reviewed May 28, 2011 for a stay in March 2011

Arriving on a freezing cold afternoon in March, the Shack was immediately warm and welcoming.
Two of us stayed, but there was enough room to fit 4 comfortably. The bathrooms were spacious and the power showers were wonderful. The Shack is light and airy with all mod cons and we had great fun watching, and feeding, the birds and squirrels.
There are some lovely walks in the area, from the sedate to the exhausting...and a fabulous Ice cream factory well worth visiting, I would advise bringing the car as it gives you a lot more options, but we could have entertained ourselves happily within five miles of the Shack. Great places to eat and drink as well as lovely countryside.From the warm welcome to the squirrel seeing us off on the last day, we had a great time and headed home refreshed, if a little reluctant !!!
