The Shepherd's Joy Hut was fantastic, the owner (Mandy) had thought of absolutely everything. The hut was clean and tidy and had every comfort from home. The hot tub was a brilliant way to relax, and the surroundings were a lovely place to enjoy an evening BBQ. The daily visits from the 9 ducks in the pond opposite the hut was a delight.
