“Ideal Base for Walking Holiday”
Reviewed June 6, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This is our second visit to the Sheep Shack and this year we had much better weather. This meant we didn't drive far and simply based our walks from the front door. Walking in this area is glorious and the small village of Hayfield is close by - we liked the Royal Hotel for dinner. The Sheep Shack is of excellent standard and there is everything you need for a cosy and enjoyable stay.

“Perfect getaway”
Reviewed April 14, 2015 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed at the Sheep Shack last summer with my wife. We were up from London for our wedding and this was the perfect retreat away from the pre wedding stresses. The owner was great and answered any queries we had. Everything you could think of is taken of. It is a really high spec holiday letting in a beautiful part of the world. I would definitely recommend it and will be visiting again.

Just be careful making your way there though, I used an old sta nav and it took me the wrong way.

We stayed here for 4 nights over New Years Eve - it is in a beautifully remote location with access to excellent walking, and is wonderfully furnished and the kitchen excellently equipped. It is large and extremely comfortable (the photos really don't do it justice - it's superb) and we were toastie warm for the duration of our stay. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend it. Our thanks to the owner.

“Perfect in all respects”
Reviewed November 27, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We spent four days at the Sheep Shack walking and visiting relatives. The Shack is extremely well appointed and well kept. We loved the fact that there were walks directly outside the door and they were amazing. Our favourite thing about the Shack was the wood burner which was lovely to return to on a cold November evening. We definitely want to return.

“Fantastic getaway”
Reviewed November 16, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I could not believe the quality of this cottage. We arrived on a cold evening but were met with a warm and cosy interior which was beautifully designed inside. The Sheep Shack contains everything you could wish for in a holiday cottage, with fully equipped kitchen, log fire, comfortable sofas, TV/DVD/music system, and 2 modernly designed bathrooms. We stayed just 2 nights but were considering calling in sick to work so we could stay longer!
All in all a wonderful cottage, and for a much cheaper price than many other similar places. Cannot find anything to fault.

“Wow, amazing”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Impressed with the amount of space and layout. The sheep shack has been developed to the highest standard. We stayed over our wedding and even extended our stay. The surrounding area is beautiful with several walks and even bike rides if you're feeling more adventurous. The local town is a short walk away with a few very nice places to eat.

Everything has been thought of, from the teapot to the bbq equipment. There is even a dishwasher, the washing machine, dryer and iron! So if you get soaked on a walk or just decide to stay longer and run out of clean clothes there is no need to worry!

Its the perfect place to get away and relax. We will definitely be booking again.
