A lovely, relaxing hut in a quiet field in Devon. The owners were really accommodating but also left us to ourselves. A wonderful place for a peaceful stay.

Just perfect if you are looking for peace and quiet, rest and relaxation. The Shepherds hut was lovely, had everything you could possibly need and was surprisingly spacious, with a lovely comfortable, large double bed. Ideally located for lots of lovely walks and only around a 45 minute drive to the coast. Couldn't fault it, we had a fabulous time.
