We did enjoy our time here. The mattress was an issue... it felt thin with little support. Access/movement was difficult on/off the bed... probably our own limitations did not help. Accessing the bed was higher than expected. It was a hut after all, we're glad to have experienced it. The experience offered was something only the hut could have offeRead morered us, solitude, peace and a view. The skies were extraordinary. Thank you for providing such an opportunity. Hide

I really enjoyed my stay at Ivy shepards hut. It was super clean and so comfortable. It was great for my dog to have the freedom of the orchard also and not have to worry about him disappearing.

Enjoy a truly off grid break in lovely remote location, which me & the dog loved. Bring a good book, your own wine and switch off. Theres tea, milk & scones on arrival - nice touch. Fenced in space is another dog friendly bonus.

Had a lovely stay, was lovely, quiet and private. We enjoyed our stay and would happily stay again. The owner popped over to make sure we was ok and that was our only contact, which was perfect for us. The welcome gifts were amazing and delicious. If you want to quiet escape this is the place for you.

A cosy and well equipped Hut with a beautiful view in a very quiet location. Great outdoor space , very safe for Dogs . Sat long into the evening beside the Firepit . I knew there was no Wi-Fi and TV ( there is a radio ) which was perfect for a chilled out holiday. If you are more adventurous, Its a 20 mins walk to sandy Lannacombe Beach and the CoRead moreastal paths. In easy reach by Car to Salcombe ( ferry foot passenger ) and Dartmouth /Brixham. Hide

The shepherds hut is in a fabulous location. It is very relaxing and peaceful to sit outside. The grounds are really private with stunning views. The hut is well equipped and the eggs from Sallie are the best. The farm shop at Stokely is great value, and their range is good. Beesands has a fantastic beach, fish shack and pub.

What a beautiful and tranquil place to stay. The hut (seems a very unfair term for something so nice) is lovely with everything you need. Really well thought out and nice touches like the a cream tea, milk, tea and coffee. It is small but more than big enough for 2. At 6 2 the bed was just right for me but if youre taller you cant sleep flat out. WRead moree stayed for a long weekend and took trips out to the coast for walks, coffee, ice cream. Will would definitely go again. Hide
