Interaction with guests
I am hoping to welcome you on arrival and to settle you in with as much information that will help with your stay. There is also lots of books and leaflets about Devon and cornwall, dartmoor and the coast. There are also maps drawn by the owner to help find places and make days out smoother and quicker. The owner is within reach via coming to the house, phone or text but the owner likes to leave their guests in peace but happy to help when needed. The hut will be unlocked on arrival so if the owner is unable to welcome you then you have easy access. All the owners want is for guests to feel relaxed and enjoy their stay and hopefully return to the shepherds hut in the future.

About the neighborhood
it is very quiet and no light pollution so perfect for the night sky and the sound of wildlife. There are local pubs 10 mins away. The forestry commission have a lot of woodland around so good walks and the one on your door step. Dartmoor gateway is 15 mins away but the beach is around 25 mins away so you can have a variety of experiences! Roadford lake is 10 minutes down the road offering you a good cafe, walks and rental of kayaks and canoes to enjoy the lake on. if you enjoy fly fishing and coarse fishing there is in plenty of places to go!
Car advised
How to get there
I will forward you directions when you book. sat nav is not always trustworthy around here and will take you a long way around, it will go down the wrong way down the road and also to the wrong house! If you are coming from the Exeter on the A30 we are 45 minutes away, 20 minutes from launceston, 25 minutes from bude, 55 minutes from plymouth.
you will have your own drive and gates and able to park next to your hut. bike storage is also available.
