The Shepherds hut was lovely! Me and my partner both really enjoyed our stay, the hut itself was very clean and had everything provided that we needed. The hot tub looking out into the fields was very relaxing and just what we both needed. Especially lovely at night when the cows would come up into the field and peer over the fence! Beautiful hut.

This was our first experience, of staying in a Shepherds Hut and we have to say, we throughly enjoyed it. The Hut was warm, cozy and clean, with a Wood Burner, for those Winter days/evenings, having said that, it does have underfloor heating.

The shepherds hut was stunning. We arrived to find it beautifully clean and everything that was promised was there. The views are stunning. The only sounds we heard were our own voices, the ducks and our dog when he felt the wind was blowing too hard or a cow had looked at him funny. We simply loved it.

A relaxing short break in the mid-Devon countryside. The hut was kitted out with everything that we could possibly need. The bed was comfortable and it provided us with an enjoyable stay.
