“We had an amazing, relaxing stay at Shepherds View, Simon and Carole have thought of everything you need for a wonderful holiday break. The views were mesmerising and we enjoyed watching the wildlife from the comfort of your swivel chair.”

“As soon as you walk in you immediately see why they have a five star rating, from the luxury bedding and furnishings to the jacuzzi bath, everything has been thought of to make your stay as relaxing as possible. The views from the building are stunning and sitting in front of the picture window with your favourite tipple is highly recommended. Our stay from start to finish was perfect and this is definitely one of the best places we have ever stayed. Highly recommended.”
