Escape with your special someone to this lovely bespoke-built shepherd's hut in a complex of properties, just 3.5 miles outside the charming town of South Molton. Sleeping two people in one bedroom, it's the perfect accommodation option for romantic couples seeking a peaceful retreat in the historic county of Devon. During the day, conquer the highest point in Exmoor at Dunkery Beacon and soak up the panoramic views of the moorlands and coastline from its summit. In the evening, come home to your charming hut and take a dip in the wood-fired hot tub while you wait for the stars to come out.

Take two wooden steps to the front door, step inside and you'll be welcomed by a cosy, beautifully designed studio-type living/kitchen/dining area decorated in peaceful shades. Take a moment to allow the country views to make you feel right at home, and then cook up a dinner for two in the compact, wooden kitchen area and enjoy a romantic meal at the dining table. Alternatively, head out to the lush garden, fire up the BBQ and have a delicious al fresco dinner at the fire pit while you admire the uninterrupted country views. After dinner, pour yourself a glass of wine and enjoy a dip in the outdoor hot tub. At the end of the day, there's a comfortable king-size bed to retire to. A smart, compact bathroom with a shower and WC completes the layout of this perfect hut for two.

Grab your hiking boots and explore Exmoor National Park (1.5 miles). Hit the trails and you've got a good chance of spotting red deer and Exmoor ponies while you enjoy breathtaking views from high cliffs and rolling hills. Alternatively, drive to the charming harbour of Porlock Weir (9 miles) to watch fishing boats come and go as you take in the views across the Bristol Channel. Afterwards, treat yourself to some fresh seafood at one of the waterfront eateries.

Fantastic break! The hut was very clean and had everything we needed. The hot tub was fantastic. It's really secluded and rural which was just what we were after. Nothing but fields as you sit and have breakfast or relax in the hot tub. The village is really nice. There is no shop but we were prepared for this. There is a really nice pub that serveRead mored great local food. Great place to switch off from the world and go for walks etc. Hide
