      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.

      5/5 Excellent

        Thank you for your hospitality, we had a lovely stay in Gertrude.

        Lovely, peaceful stay in a beautiful shepherd hut. All occasions catered/equipped for. We will be back.

        5/5 Excellent


          Just perfect from start to finish - couldn't have asked for better hosts - just what we needed, thank you. Would definitely recommend.

          5/5 Excellent

            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.

            5/5 Excellent

              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.
