It is our second time staying at the shepherd's hut. The location and accommodation is just fabulous. The hut is well equipped and very comfortable. The garden surrounding it is a lovely environment to sit in with marvellous views over Kenilworth Castle - we were also lucky to have sunny hot weather.
Absolutely wonderful - great location (a stone's throw away from the front gate of Kenilworth Castle), and lovely lodgings.
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!
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.
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
