"Just spent the most glorious night in the NEW shepherd’s hut"

What a delight. Sturdy and well insulated, the hut was really cosy and comfortable, with tasteful decor (always like a bit of bunting), and even a private little garden. My Wife and I have camped here before and were delighted to be offered the chance to be the first ones to stay in the shepherd’s hut. It looked so quaint and inviting, and we found it to be everything we could have hoped for. Beautifully decorated inside, light and airy, with nice little touches like fresh flowers, tea and coffee, kettle, toaster, even a TV. The bed was lovely and we slept so well – always the ultimate test. If you’ve ever fancied the idea of staying in a shepherd’s hut, then now is the time, and this is the place. An absolute gem, and the owner built it himself!  Amazing. 10 out of 10. We can’t wait to come back.

We all had a great week, Like home from home. We enjoyed the hot tub. Well placed to visit lots of attractions from Gt. Yarmouth, the Broads to Dinosaurs. Tried fishing for the first time – and caught a fish!

The Tellings, London.


We had such fun, Wroxham and Ludham were great and we enjoyed the walks too.

The May & Denneys, Chelmsford.


We had a wonderful week, lovely cottage – loved the furniture! Great to have a hot tub to relax in. Our house rabbit enjoyed watching the wild bunnies in the field opposite. Sunday carvery at the Kings Head is worth a visit. Spent lots of money in The Smugglers Cave in Sheringham and Sandringham was interesting, although the Queen was out when we popped round, maybe next time!

What a lovely place, lovely and clean. Plenty to do in the area. We hired a picnic boat for the day from Potter Heigham – Broads Tours – which was a lovely day. Been to Yarmouth and Greyhound Racing. Went to Wroxham Barns which is well worth a look, Bewilderwood was fab and found the Swan Inn at Horning – the food is fantastic. We ate there 3 times!! Yum-Yum. Thank You.

Donna, Gary, Ella & Charlie Rutherford, Basildon Essex.


Here with our daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren Ella and Charlie. Spotless, warm accommodation. Ideal location, plenty to do for everyone. The hot tub was a bonus. Ella and Charlie at 12 and 14 years of age had a brilliant day at Bewilderwood, but suitable for much younger children (and adults) to!! Thank You for a memorable holiday.

Lilian & Brian Henshaw, Pitsea Essex.


Had a great week. Loved the hot tub and cottage, couldn’t fault the location. Enjoyed the country walks and visits to the beaches. Good places to visit Sea Palling and Happisburgh. Also day trip to Dinosaur Park in Lenwade. Great for kids and adults. Hope to come back soon in the Summer. Thank You – Happy New Year.

Very impressive accommodation. Great surroundings and so peaceful. Clearly a lot of thought has gone into the decoration/soft furnishings. Will definitely be returning! Soap in the bathroom would have been helpful.

Dear Matt and Sharon

Just to say thank you for a great holiday experience – the cottage (Dill) was wonderful – really comfortable, well-equipped and easy to live in! Thanks too for the loan of the chairs – it was great, having forgotten ours!!   We hope to return one day, and will contact you direct now we know we can. Many thanks, Anne.
