Property code: 78435

A fabulously well-designed shepherds hut, set in the grounds of the owners impressive thatched home. The village pub and store are close by and the golden sandy beach of Westward Ho! is a short drive.

Set in a stunning rural location yet only 5.5 miles to Barnstaple, this little hut is the ideal romantic hideaway for two. Stylish and contemporary with the perfect blend of rustic woods and soothing colours, this property gives you the opportunity to relax and unwind with your beau among beautiful surroundings. Wake up refreshed and ready to take on the day, heading out to the patio with your morning coffee to watch over the lake and fields beyond.

 

Whether you’ve got your feet up in front of the wood burner or you’re strolling the extensive grounds, you’ll find your happy place here. The interiors embrace your proximity to nature with earthy tones mixed with white, and charming farmhouse-style touches add a little bit of fun. Fold up your cosy bed to reveal the dining area, perfect for breakfasts spent planning your day’s activities, or dine alfresco on the patio to take in the wonderful views. Take your rods and tackle down to the lake for a peaceful morning fishing or arrange with the owner to practise your putting on the green.

 

Get your surf on at the beach in Croyde (17 miles) or Woolacombe (19 miles), both prime locations for amateur and experienced surfers, or stay slightly closer and visit Saunton Sands (14 miles). Grab your hiking boots and take the 6-mile circular walk from Swimbridge (1 mile) through Kerscott and Dennington Barton; it’s a steep climb out of the village but the views at the top are worth it! If a gentler walk is more up your street, wander at your own pace around Wistlandpound Reservoir (10 miles) where there are two main paths to take.

We had the most amazing weekend - the hut is beautifully decorated and furnished within stunning grounds. A lovely private outside area including table and chairs, BBQ and a hot tub. The other shepherd hut is hidden from view with a willow screen giving some privacy (this must have been added after the photos on the website were taken). The securitRead morey gate and dogs make you feel safe and able to leave any surfboards/bikes. I would definitely recommend and we hope to come again next year Hide

Top stay for a quiet get away. Warm welcome from Zena to a lovely shepherd's hut set in secure private grounds with thoughtful touches including milk and eggs on our arrival. The hut is self contained clean and comfortable with everything you need there is even a torch and umbrella. We were delighted to spend some time with the three 'security' dogRead mores who were so friendly. Don't be put off if youre not a dog lover as they are very well behaved. Would highly recommend and couldn't fault it. Hide

An amazing shepherd hut in an outstanding location. If you look from outside its just a cottage but if youre in, youll find everything you need. Just a 20 min drive from beautiful beaches of Devon. If the weather isnt great to go out, you can still go for a walk or can have fun in hot tub.
