Reviewed 28 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Absolutely wonderful - great location (a stone's throw away from the front gate of Kenilworth Castle), and lovely lodgings.

“Excellent Private Stay”
Reviewed 27 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I brought my girlfriend here as a surprise for the weekend. At first look from the outside she was a bit hesitant but upon seeing the inside she loved it.

Being on the farm's grounds you're a good half a mile from the town which means you have a secluded area but still only a short walk from the castle and the town centre.

Having a view of the castle was wonderful, and we enjoyed sitting in the sun with the view of it.

We found the bed very comfortable, and all the amenities good. Would definitely stay again!

“Lovely but eat in the pub ”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We stayed here for 3 nights as we were attending a wedding in the area and wanted a few days to relax.

Hut is very nice it's a modern reproduction rather than an original one but that means no character but it's much better insulated , nice and warm no need to use the heater.

Nice view from the bed over to the castle very peaceful. It is not very private being on a grass verge off the road opposite the main farm house. We felt that it would be much better if they moved the table to the back and made a some kind of fence or hedge to the road.

Inside there is a small fridge with an ice box a kettle and a toaster. There is some tea bags, coffee for a cafetière, salt pepper and oil and a small bottle of milk which was nice to arrive to. There is a BBQ outside with a gas ring on one side. I'm sure it is great on a calm summers day but we tried to make breakfast on it when there was a slight breeze and could not get enough heat to fry an egg. It's not a major issue we brought croissants for breakfast and ate out at Kenilworth's many nice restaurants for other meals. Ego is nice and we went to the cool DC diner @ Coventry Airport which is a cool experience eating on a plane. We stayed in another Shepherds hut and they had a one ring electric hob inside which would be a great addition to this place.

Overall we had a great time the location is nice about a 15" walk in to Kenilworth town and 5 minutes to the castle. Host was nice and left us to ourselves. Would go back if we needed to be in the area again.

“Fantastic”
Reviewed 3 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Great location! Clean and friendly owner. The owner Zoe was a great host advised us of the best local establishments to go to even thou she was on holiday herself she still went out of her own way to reply to any questions we had. We had emergency contact details she provided however they were never needed. The location was a stone throw away from the castle. We had clear views of the castle from dusk to dawn! Plenty to do nearby and great eateries too! The hut itself was impressively well equipped considering the size. Only one thing was that there isn't a TV but when your away do you really want to spend time just around the tv! Thank you again Zoe

Thank you for your lovely review, I am so glad you love the hut too.
We have had the odd comment about putting a TV in the hut before but have decided against it. We hope that part of the charm of the place is that you are away from technology and can enjoy the view and the company you are in. It sounds like you did both. We hope to see you again in the future.

“We WILL be back!!”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Absolutely loved our stay in the Shepherd's Hut, it was idyllic! The views of Kenilworth Castle and its surroundings were fantastic, the Hut itself was beyond cute; a perfect size for two with everything we needed for our stay.
Our host let us know she was available and then left us to enjoy our time there, perfect.

In short, we loved every minute of it and we WILL be going back. Fabulous times!
