    What an amazing place to stay. We received all the information we needed in advance making it easy to know what to bring. The site was well cared for with the grass mown allowing us to set up the pup tent for the boys. The outdoor kitchen made the experience even better with everything you needed there and set up for the whole family so you really don't need to take anything with except toiletries and clothes. The bathroom was great and everything really clean with fluffy towels to boot. It was good to be able to set up the pup tent close to the gypsy van and away from the fire. We can't recommend this site enough if you want to glamp in your own personal paradise. With owls and bats and a clear night sky to stargaze around the campfire it was like heaven and we will definitely be back.

    The set up was incredible in its own little field with a hut with kitchen appliances and a BBQ.
    The location is in a perfect set up in the countryside.
    Also the couple who rent this shepherds hut out were lovely and so helpful.
    We will 100% be returning at least once a year with our dogs.

    We stayed for one evening to see George Ezra at Latitude. The Shepherd Hut was surprisingly spacious, the paddock was beautiful, the kitchen area was rustic, pretty and clean as were the shower facilities. We will definitely return to sit around the fire pit and visit some of the beautiful Suffolk villages. It was peaceful and perfect. Thank you!

    Everything about the place.
    The hut itself was bigger than I initially thought, with everything needed in there. Even a little starter kit: milk, butter, fresh eggs, tea bags, sugar, coffee, a bbq fire starter kit outside as well as some fire logs.
    The outside kitchen was so lovely that we plan on making our own one at home now, again this had everything you needed in it to cook with, wash up with, as well as dinner condiments that we didn't have to worry about buying. The toilet hut was clean and spacious with a lovely shower 🚿
    We sat on the chairs and had a fire every night and it was so lovely and quiet. Love that the hut and the kitchen had little fairy lights around them, which made them look pretty at night.

    We will be returning in the future, both with and without our children.

    The owners, Seb and Jayne are so friendly, really lovely people.

    Disliked: 

    I don't think there was anything I disliked apart from the fact I had to leave 😂

    The hut was very hot the first night so maybe a fan in there would help if I really had to make a comment?

    Just what we were looking for. Complete escape from everyday life. No TV, no phones, no Internet.
    Had everything you need to just relax and unwind. Open campfire and bbq for dinner. Fantastic. Excellent hosts. Welcomed on arrival and we're there if we needed otherwise totally unobtrusive.

    Absolutely loved this place, as did the wife & kids (& our puppy). The owners Jayne & Seb were lovely & friendly but were only there when needed. The shephards hut was beautifully decorated & came with all the essentials (kettle, microwave, fridge, plug sockets etc), the field kitchen was impressive & to have your own shower room with a lovely shower just made the trip.

    Disliked: 

    The amount of flies :) lol - This can hardly be helped though.
