This gorgeous shepherds hut is one of two nesting on a 100 acre sheep farm with a trail and public footpath on site, boasts a lovely finish throughout and provides the perfect base for a truly relaxing couples retreat to Devon.
Nestled in the heart of Dartmoor National Park in the pretty village of Holne, this charming property promises an unforgettable escape to guests. Quaint and cosy, this little cabin is an opportunity to discover the rugged Devon countryside with riverside walks and tors galore. Wake up after a tranquil night’s sleep, grab your coffee and watch the morning unfold from the private garden area.
Whether you’re off down the footpaths along the River Dart or relaxing in front of the wood burner, you’ll find your own way to unwind here. The interiors boast fresh blue and yellow tones in a contemporary farmhouse style with hand-crafted oak fixtures and fittings dotted throughout. You’ll have no trouble dining in the lounge/diner area, but come bedtime it transforms into the bedroom with a clever pull-down bed. If you’d prefer to dine alfresco, sizzle up a BBQ and eat at the garden furniture with the fire pit burning away.
Take a picnic and explore the footpaths at Holne Wood (1 mile), or take a 4.5-mile walk along the River Dart that starts from New Bridge (3.5 miles) and moves through the woods. Enjoy the scenery in a more leisurely fashion from the South Devon Railway (7 miles) that takes you on a 7-mile journey from Buckfastleigh to Totnes along the river. If you’re looking for a day at the seaside, Paignton (19 miles) is the perfect choice to wander along the pier, grab some ice cream or sunbathe on the beach.
