The location high above the Axe Valley as it heads to the Jurassic Coast just a few miles away could not be more magical. Easy to reach, yet off the beaten track for the last adventurous mile, classic Devon hedgerows, majestic trees and then a sweep of meadow grazed by the Wykeleigh herd – all the perfect complement to a traditional Shepherd's Hut. Stargazy Sky Shepherd's Hut is in its very own meadow, within the Owners' grounds, with a copse of mature trees to one side, fields stretching downhill in front and even a tiny brook close by. This sort of tranquility is so rare these days and you will relax the moment you arrive. The bespoke hut has a wood-burning stove inside for evenings feeling snug and a fire-pit outside for romantic evenings beneath a star studded sky. There is a lovely comfortable bed with a fully sprung mattress and top quality bed linens, a proper hot shower and all the kitchen and cooking facilities you will need for your luxury glamping experience.
Wake up bright and early and brave the unique outside spring-fed shower! Put on the coffee pot and listen to the sounds of the countryside. Head off on foot, the farmland here borders the wonderful Trinity Hill nature reserve, and it's just a short walk to the inspirational River Cottage and to the 300 acre organic Trill Farm. Try out one of their Saturday lunches or monthly seasonal feasts, and then stroll back through the beautiful landscape to your perfect bolthole. In season, the Owner can offer barbecue packs of their own beef or pork, and fruit, vegetables and eggs when available too. If you can tear yourselves away, Lyme Regis is a just a five mile drive away and along the coast to the east, Seaton's pebbled beach is the nearest and stretching to the west along the east Devon coast you will find a chain of wonderfully classic seaside villages and towns – Beer, Branscombe, Sidmouth and Budleigh Salterton.
