The hut was cosy and a good base to work from. Location not as believed from the pictures. Owner has dogs of their own so not suitable for reactive dogs like mine.

The Shepherds Hut at Tortworth is a great little place to stay. While it was a little drive away from some locations I wanted to visit in The Cotswolds, I was able to drive through so many beautiful villages & towns. The hosts where friendly, but didnt intrude on the stay & I forgot we where in their garden. Would definitely recommend staying here,Read more great as a base & somewhere to sleep. Hide

The Shepherds Hut was the perfect place for myself and my dog to stay for the weekend. Mr Hill was extremely kind and welcoming and the hut is set in a gorgeous area of Tortworth. It was close to the motorway for our travels to other areas. We had a lovely weekend and would highly recommend any other dog friendly travellers of this property.

I had such a lovely, cosy, relaxing stay at the Tortworth Shepherds Hut. The hut has everything I needed! The couple who own the hut were so welcoming and friendly. The area is beautiful and the couple were able to give me some great tips on where to explore with my pup. Highly recommend!

We have just returned from a wonderful break in the Shepherds Hut. We were very lucky and had fabulous weather, so we were able to make the most of the outside seating area and share some fuss with the resident doggies! The location is perfect, there are some wonderful walks nearby, and a short drive away, and the surroundings so peaceful. The Hut Read morehas everything you need for a perfect romantic getaway.

Small but perfectly formed. The Shepherds Hut is located in the private garden of a property that stands at the entrance to Tortworth Estate. We used it as a base to explore the area over 3 days.

Had an excellent solo stay. Hosts are knowledgeable and have three friendly dogs who say morning and goodnight. Quirky and fairly secluded. Feels safe. At night the stars are clear and there is a gentle hum from the M5, but barely noticeable. The road that runs past the hut can be busy.
