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.
