Stayed in the very cosy Shepherds Hut for two nights which was ideal for a couple.
Accommodation - Bed was a very comfortable double and very spacious. Not the biggest inside the hut but spent most of the time outside as we got lucky with the weather. Cute rugs along the floor and nicely decorated for a small room very quirky. Search for spiders before sleeping Large communal tent for ping pong, table football and board games provided if the weather doesn't hold out.
Barn brasserie less than 100 metres down the road was incredible, book in advance very easy via the website.
Facilities - Three toilets and three showers all in shed type buildings with locks, all standard and showers were warm and were cleaned daily, bring flip flops for easier changing. Communal kitchen and eating area has everything you would need down to the last detail. Large fridges for barbecue food and there are cookers if weather doesn't allow.
Didn't see much of the hosts but there were mobile numbers to call if assistance was needed. Fire pits and tables located outside every room/tent for cold weather, fire wood purchasable from hosts and bring disposable barbecues!
Location - Beautifully decorated entrance and had a nice rural covering of forest which has a safe feeling about it. Nothing overgrown and grass was even cut very short! Car park available for larger groups too and very easily located if you're coming off the A12. Colchester zoo 15 minute drive away for a nice day out.
Would definitely recommend to friends and family and we will return!
