Discover this attractive accommodation in an idyllic rural setting. Overlooking a field which slopes gently down towards a lake where geese and ducks swim, this retreat provides the perfect escape from everyday life. As it’s right in the heart of the beautiful county of Devon, you are well-placed for exploring the landmarks and attractions found in this incredible region.

You can enjoy breakfast together, seated at the breakfast bar while you plan your activities for the day. If you are cooking for yourselves in the kitchen area, you have the choice of dining indoors or outdoors on a fine day. The delightful patio area with views of the lake and fields beyond offers the perfect spot for al fresco dining. You could even make use of the BBQ to enhance your outdoor experience and finish the evening with the luxury of bathing in a private hot tub. At the end of a busy day's explorations, relax in front of the TV, perhaps with the wood burner lit on a chilly night for added comfort and cosiness.

The nearby village of Kennerleigh (1 mile) has a unique community store, selling a variety of local produce alongside your everyday needs, including meat, free range eggs and cider. The historic market town of Crediton (5 miles) has numerous shops, pubs and a farmers' market. Further afield you’ll find Tiverton (12 miles), with its castle, museum and historic Grand Western Canal.

Really secluded spot ideal for anyone wanting to get away from it all. The shepherd hut was very cosy (the wonders of under floor heating), compact but perfectly comfortable.

A real farm with just 3 properties to let. They are well spaced out and you have plenty of privacy. The Shepherds hut is very well equipped and beautifully maintained. Hot tub is lovely, fire pit available and a BBQ. It really is every bit as good as the photos indicated. Good base to explore Exmoor & Dartmoor.
