“A brillant week, very relaxing”

Just had a week in the Shepshed, with my better half and another couple, absolutely superb. So clean, the layout, the pool table, the sauna, the hot tub, everything was spot on. The venue, so relaxing, great to look at open fields or watch the fish. The location, its the countryside at its best, perfect location for villages, towns, and country. The pub food was spot on. \\\e will be going there again. Robert & betty looked after us, and my misses fell in love with the cat & dogs, great week.

“Absolutely Perfect”

Robert, Betty Lou, James and Millie were absolutely brilliant during our stay there last bank holiday weekend. We had the cabin booked for a week but even though we stayed only over the weekend, we felt it was worth it. They have created a little piece of paradise, far away from everything with its own hot tub (which was the main attraction for us, initially), steam room and pool table. The surrounding countryside was beautiful and the walks were lovely. A pleasurable, relaxing stay if you want to get away from it all.

“Many places claim to have it all this place delivers!!!”
Reviewed December 2, 2010 for a stay in November 2010

Me and my partner and a couple of good friends stayed at the Old Sheep Shed at the end of November, all we can say was this place was amazing, the weather was cold and snow on the ground which made the setting even better. The accomodation as a whole is amazing the pictures dont do this place justice. The underfloor heating is a joy along with all the luxuries that have been listed. The only thing that is better than the accomodation was the people that owned it Mr & Mrs Davies couldnt of been more helpful and friendly. Many places claim to have it all and some do but this little hidden gem is not only top grade accomodation but very well priced too. If you are a couple or a family looking for a relaxing place to stay with excellent hosts then dont look any further. We will be certainly coming back again next year and many years to come 5 stars all round.

“I consider this to be one of the best Self Catering Cottages in the country”
Reviewed September 25, 2010 for a stay in September 2010

The Old Sheep Shed is a wonderful conversion which has been well thought out, is superbly maintained and provides every comfort. Mr & Mrs Davies are the perfect hosts. We have stayed in many award winning cottages over the past few years and The Old Sheep Shed warrants a place among the best. All fixtures and fittings are of lovely quality. The private hot tub is top of the range and the landscaped garden (which is beautifully lit at night) frames the large pond well stocked with carp and goldfish provides a relaxing backdrop. A sauna is available in one of the bathrooms or you may prefer a game of pool in the comfy games room. All in all a lovely break.
