This pretty property, nestled in an idyllic setting surrounded by farmland on the ten-acre grounds of the owners' home, has been lovingly fitted and furnished providing a perfect escape to the country.

Shut out the world and hunker down at this shepherd’s hut in an idyllic lakeside setting close to the Devon and Cornwall border. This romantic glamping getaway is a peaceful base for outdoor pursuits and exploring the wild beauty of Dartmoor National Park. The underfloor heating and fire pit ensure you’ll always be warm and toasty, while the shared lakeside summer house is a great social hub, which includes a bar and billiards table. Or why not have a game of Croquet, 9 Hole Pitch and Putt or French Boule in the garden.

A few steps up to the property take you inside to a surprisingly roomy open-plan living area. Enjoy cosy nights in round the roaring wood burner and prepare an intimate dinner for two in the well-equipped kitchen area. After morning lie-ins in the snug king-size bed, wake yourself up with an invigorating shower before taking your time over a leisurely breakfast. Outside, the lawn is a tranquil spot to soak up the panoramic views over the lake to the fields beyond. Fire up the BBQ and dine under the stars – and raise a toast to sharing the good times together.

It’s understandable if you’re reluctant to leave your rustic retreat, but if you do want to venture out, there are plenty of options. Roadford Lake (3 miles) offers fishing, walking and kayaking, while Launceston Steam Railway (8 miles) is great for a nostalgic journey through the Cornish countryside. Dartmoor is 14 miles away, with an abundance of beautiful scenery including Lydford Gorge and its towering waterfall. For romantic walks on the beach, go barefoot on the silky soft sands at Bude, 18 miles away.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Great location, accommodation and relaxation. Everything was as described, and if possible even better than expected. Host Malcolm had the perfect balance of information and accessibility without ever being intrusive. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable break.

A super peaceful hideaway! Despite there being 3 huts in total they are well spaced out with thoughtful planting to offer privacy. Lovely west facing view so perfect for sunsets, with clear skies for star gazing. Lovely cosy accommodation that was spotless - with lovely hosts too. Highly recommended!

Fantastic little hut with everything we needed. Very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and very clean! There are also plenty of 'garden games' which we had a lot of fun playing - pitch and putt, ring toss, skattles and loads more. The nearby shop has all the basics for anyone not wanting to travel too far. Our little dog enjoyed walking aroundRead more the fields as well as watching the ducks. Lovely place and we highly recommend it! Hide

The Shepherd's Hut was lovely and well equipped with everything you needed. It was set in a very peaceful area of the countryside. There was a quirky summer house, called the Duck Inn where you could borrow books, play games and just chill out with drinks from the fridge available to buy. Information was on hand from the owners, who were very helpfRead moreul and friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience. Hide
