This rustic shepherd’s hut is nestled in an idyllic spot halfway down a long farm driveway from which spectacular views can be enjoyed. Great for couples to relish a degree of seclusion.

Cosy up in this cute-as-a-button shepherd’s hut and lodge in the heart of Devon. Situated at the end of a long farm lane, it offers an amazing location with fabulous countryside views. The rustic wooden structures provide cosy living and sleeping spaces yet open the doors and you have acres of prime Devon countryside at your feet. Outside, sit back in the hot tub, breathe out and let the stresses of life melt away.

When you first step inside the hut and lodge, you’ll be amazed at how the spaces have been put together. The lodge has a seating area and corner kitchen (bathroom facilities are next door) - you simply have to step out to the deck to drink in the views from the sun loungers or hot tub. Next door is the beautifully-furnished bedroom in the shepherd’s hut, with its very own wood burner for chilly nights.

Though it will be hard to leave, you will need provisions, so pop into Bickleigh (3 miles) and visit the mill with its boutique shops and artisan foods. The historic town of Tiverton (4 miles) makes an unforgettable day out, with a fascinating horse-drawn barge, one of the only ones in the UK. Keen historians will love the atmospheric former royal fortress of Tiverton Castle, commissioned by Henry I in 1106 and open from Easter until the end of October.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

The Shepherds Hut is set in a great location with wonderful views. Be prepared for three miles of narrow lanes to get there but the views are worth it. The nut has everything you need for a relaxing stay with the hosts on hand should you need them. The bed is really comfy and the hot tub is a great place to sit and take in the views. The closest toRead more glamping we will ever do and had a great time. Hide

Really restful break in this quirky property. We really enjoyed watching the daily farming activities in the vast views around the property, from rounding up the cows each day to baling hay. The hot tub was a treat and everything was there that we needed for a complete chill out. Would definitely recommend.

Amazing place with all home essentials and comforts whilst still all the amazing rustic charm of a country get away, secluded and completly hidden away.
