The Shepherds Hut is situated in the top field of our lovely little farm, in a secluded paddock with views over our mares, foals and lambs - with visits from ducks, chickens or maybe our peacock! Only two 'neighbours' a good distance are Linnet and Skylark Yurts which may also be rented independently or together with the Hut.
A cosy romantic peaceful location for those wanting a different holiday, walking, stargazing in the dark skies, near to wonderful beaches in Devon and Dorset, or maybe just sampling the wonderful local food at River Cottage, Hix restaurant or super local pubs!
Two lovely white shower 'stables' with loo and washbasin!! - no compost loos in sight!

The views are fantastic and the animals (and owners) after very friendly. more

we stayed for a week in the tiny Swift Shepherds Hut, tucked in the corner of a field with beautiful views of the valley. 2 yurts were at other corners of the field, far enough away not to be disturbed, close enough not to feel isolated. The yurts were more spacious and definitely 'glamping' , our Hut was more a...
