This unique and stylish lodge/shepherd’s hut with hot tub is a fun and exciting property which nestles in an enclosed and private part of the owners’ 300-acre farmland in a beautiful part of Devon.

Tucked away in an enclosed and private part of a 300-acre country estate, this stylish shepherd’s hut and lodge makes a quirky getaway for couples or even just you and the dog! Made up of two buildings and a hot tub, as well as a wet room behind the lodge, it provides a little slice of heaven for guests who want to get away from the crowds with just the sounds of the countryside for company. You can’t beat sinking into the cosy bedroom of the shepherd’s hut, the wood burner on to keep toasty at night.

While a rustic country feel dominates both the lodge and shepherd’s hut, the furnishings and appliances give a modern touch. Sit down for romantic dinners in the lodge, which has a contemporary kitchen area to cook all that local produce you have discovered on your days out. On cool nights, you can sit inside at the bench table to enjoy the fruits of your labour but during the warmer summer months, you can’t beat eating alfresco on the terrace and taking an impromptu dip in the hot tub under the Devon night sky.

For evenings out, visit the idyllic Fisherman’s Cot at Bickleigh (2 miles) for dinner, or the charming town of Tiverton (5 miles) for a larger selection of restaurants. The cathedral city of Exeter is a 15-mile drive away and is a haven of historic attractions, including the Gothic cathedral, Royal Albert Memorial Museum and the medieval underground passages that run beneath the city. Dartmoor National Park is within 30 miles and offers excellent walking and cycling country.

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

Fabulous break in the countryside, totally private with wonderful walks to enjoy! We took our dog and she loved it! If youre looking for seclusion, a warm welcome but no interference from anyone, this is the place for you - wonderful

This cottage is perfect if you want to get away from everything and have some peace and quiet. It is secluded, quiet and not overlooked by any other property or the road. Although we did not bring our dogs with us this time, they would have loved it. As well as ample room for them to investigate in the cottage field, they would have enjoyed the addRead moreitional field that comes with this cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and definitely plan on returning. Hide

On our honeymoon so the peace & quiet there was perfect. Quaint but modern, enclosed garden perfect for our husky. Nearest pub a mile walk away but very hilly! Food there was stunning. Hot tub fantastic. Owners were friendly & happy to help. Highly recommended.

Lovely, self contained area with all the required amenities. Excellent kitchen area with a comfy sofa and tv etc. The hot tub was a lovely way of relaxing following a day out exploring. The Shepards hut added an unique bedroom and was very comfortable. We had a great stay here and would return without hesitation.

Great quiet location, owner's very helpful and on hand if needed. Shepherd hut very cozy and warm, loads of space in the garden and the hot tub is lush. Location great for walks and visiting little villages, attractions especially the waterfalls at Canonteign Falls, beautiful day out.

Just had a fantastic mid week break at shepherds hut, the hut and living accommodation were perfect, spotlessly clean and had everything we needed, including a most unexpected welcome gift which went down very well on the first night, the views were fantastic and the place was so peaceful we could easily have stayed longer, the owner came down and Read moregreeted us and she was very welcoming and friendly. The hot tub was amazing and massive, it was also very well sheltered. Definitely coming :) Hide
