Hi Dale I'd like to thank you for a fantastic few days at the Sheppards Huts..Also you speedy replies every time I contacted you!! We had the most special time from such a warm welcome to well every aspect of our stay... you have thought of absolutely everything, lovely touches both in the hut but also around the site. Everything was spotless .. great facilities ie, shower rooms, kitchen .... but for us waking up to birds and that sea view was so special! Also relaxing in our little garden area with a beer in the afternoon.. BBQ breakfast, literally everything was there to make it easy to chill out! Not to mention the stars at night and complete peace.. I could go on forever, honestly beats any hotel or experience we've had in the UK. So of course we will be back for sure :) if you are looking for something a little different I can recommend Dales place hands down, excellent!!

We enjoyed a lovely couple of days in the blue hut! The hut itself was cosy, with a nice comfy bed. Dale was a great host, suggesting beautiful beaches to visit and nice places to eat. We would definitely come again!

We stayed at Dale's a couple of days after our wedding, and found it to be a very nice stay overall, but there was a bit of confusion over which hut we were staying in. I initially booked the blue one, and then was asked the day before to change to the green one. I agreed, having been assured that everything would be the same. Unfortunately when we got there, we found that the blue one had sea views from the seating area and its own toilet, and the green one did not. If anything when you've just got married, you expect to be bumped up, not down! We were not very pleased and asked to change, which they did for us the next day. This caused some inconvenience, as we had to pack up and move the next morning, but overall they dealt with it well and gave us £10 off our bedding / towels.

Dear catherine, we communicated this beforehand and you agreed to the change but never mind.

Our stay was everything we could have hoped for and was perfectly situated with views out to the sea and the surrounding landscape. The shepherd's hut was really cosy and quiet and it was clear that the hosts had thought about the small things because our hut was kitted out with everything we needed for the stay. We particularly enjoyed lighting a fire and chilling out in the evening with a glass of wine. All the facilities have been made spacious and comfortable and have all the cutlery, plates, cups etc so you can get right into the spirit of glamping.

Great stay in the Blue Shepherd's Hut. Waking up to nature was special and the BBQ facilities were great for the sunny evenings. The showers were hot and powerful which was perfect after a long day exploring St Ives. The hut itself was nicely decorated, warm and cosy - a lovely place to stay. Highly recommended glamping experience.

I would 100% recommend the Shepherd Huts, and will most definitely be returning. Every little detail has been thought about. The huts were warm and cosy, with additional touches such as very good wifi & integrated speakers. It was the perfect holiday adventure.
