We didn't actually meet Dale, but we did meet his brother who made us feel welcome and who showed us to our accommodation even though we were early, having arrived at about 1.00 pm. The shepherd's hut was delightful and everything was spotlessly clean, including the 'wet room.' The description given was accurate and the neighbourhood was beautiful and we even had a lovely sunny day.
L'accoglienza di Dale è stata ottima, è un tipo molto socievole e ci ha subito fatto sentire a casa! La sistemazione è semplice ed originale, in un ambiente suggestivo dove sembra di ritornare indietro nel tempo ma al tempo stesso dotato di tutte le comodità necessarie.
We were made to feel very welcome by the family. This is a funky place with super laid back vibes - reminds me of travelling abroad. Our shepherds hut was warm and cosy with everything (and more) that we needed. There are some beautiful walks and woods right next door and the food in the local pub is unbelievable. I'll be back ....
Dale was a fantastic host who communicated with us fantastically from the moment we booked our break. His directions to the accommodation were fantastic (we would have got lost without them). In terms of the accommodation itself, Dale notified us that our original booking for the Shepherd Hut had run into issues due to an act of vandalism from the previous people who stayed in the hut and it was therefore out of commission for our booking. However, with Dale being a brilliant host, he had already sorted out alternative accommodation in one of his lodges on the same site. This was a very pleasant surprise as the accommodation, a converted barn, was offered to such a high standard that it more than made up for any potential negatives from not being able to stay in the shepherds hut. Both me and my wife were impressed with the communication and forward thinking of the host to sort the situation out. We lucked out with the weather and chose the 3 perfect days, the accommodation is around a 15 minute walk to the centre of St Ives. We would have no hesitation in revisiting, especially to give the Shepherd's hut a go and fully intend to book again in the future! Thank you Dale!!!
Dale was a brilliant host! We loved the place and our stay at the hut. We had a gypsy caravan with a terrace which was (website hidden) Ives is a beautiful place, highly recommend for a getaway.
Fantastic stay - the photos don't do the huts justice. So well put together and we didn't want for anything. Dale was a great host and I hope to return when the weather is a little brighter!
Perfect place to get away from the city! I had to reschedule my arrival time couple of time and that was never a problem. For that reason I didn't meet Dale, but his girlfriend was very welcome. I wish I did have more time and I will definitely come back!
