This beautifully positioned shepherd's hut has outstanding 180 degree views across Lyme Bay to the cliffs of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast. You can be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves on the shoreline below or enjoy breakfast on your enclosed patio, with your ocean backdrop. Snuggled into the corner of the owners' garden, but with your own private entrance, this stylish shepherd's hut has everything you need for a luxury glamping getaway; a super comfy double bed, cosy wood-burner, full-sized fridge with ice-box, for those holiday essentials, cooking facilities and fully functional bathroom with hot shower and flushing loo. The little sheltered and enclosed garden is south-facing, perfect for relaxing on a sun lounger with a good book, or having a barbecue with local produce from the very good farm shops that you will find in this part of east Devon.
If you can tear yourself away from this relaxing location, a short walk will take you into Seaton with its mile-long stretch of pebbled beach and new Jurassic Visitor Centre. Seaton Wetlands Nature Reserve extends along the River Axe, over two miles of trails and boardwalk through peaceful marshland, with lots of hides and unusual birds to spot along the route. For the energetic, bring your bikes for the Exe Estuary Trail; the sixteen mile route includes both sides of the estuary and connects to Exmouth, Exeter and Dawlish. Secure storage for bikes is available at Seacliffe. Alternatively pick up the South West Coast Path and head west, after a short walk you will come to Beer, a charming little village where fish are still landed on the beach and a stall on the beach sells the catch of the day, perfect for that barbecue! During the summer months you can hire kayaks, a paddleboard or take boat tour to explore this very special coastline. Continuing west along the coast, the charming village of Branscombe and regency town of Sidmouth are a short distance. A twenty minute drive east will take you to Lyme Regis with its iconic Cobb, independent shops and dozens of cafes and restaurants, you may even be lucky enough to find a fossil on Monmouth beach; the annual Fossil Festival is held at the end of April. River Cottage HQ is nearby too, great for a special meal or book one of their cookery courses to give you a new skill to take home after your holiday is over. Continue east and you will find West Bay, filming location for Broadchurch, and the quirky market town of Bridport.
