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.

Certainly a "get away from it all" location. The hot tub was excellent, as was the shepherd's hut. The seclusion was brilliant and perfect for a romantic holiday. The visiting cows in the adjacent field made novel holiday companions. Some nice pubs in the vicinity as well for eating out.
