Wild Pear Beach is in sight of this gorgeous shepherd's hut and gives it its name. High above the incredible north Devon coast between Ilfracombe and Combe Martin, with its dramatic cliffs, rocky coves and sandy surfing beaches, this location is a winner. Add to that a bespoke, beautifully fitted out and furnished shepherd's hut with a touch of luxury and you have the perfect place to switch off from everyday life. This special glamping site is set in its own dedicated enclosed area so you will feel really private. The historic farmstead is behind you and the lovely owners are on site to make you feel really welcome but will leave you to enjoy your holiday in peace. Inside, you have a super comfy bed with a proper sprung mattress, an en suite shower-room with endless hot water and a flushing WC (a far cry from those childhood camping memories!), a wood-burning stove and simple cooking facilities. Your enclosed outside areas gives you a fire-pit BBQ for al fresco meals and private space to relax on a sunny day. Out-of-season this is a location that is exhilarating and dramatic and, whatever the weather comes up with, you have the cosiest of retreats to snuggle up in.
As well as Wild Pear's sister, Copperas Shepherd's Hut, also on site is a very small campsite run by the owners and gorgeous The Linney, all unobtrusive from each other with their own private areas. Berrynarbor is the closest village and there is a wonderful community-run shop there, as well as a great pub. The north Devon coast is also on the doorstep of the wilderness and wide open space of the Exmoor National Park, and so you have the best of both worlds to explore during your holiday. Glamping, hiking, surfing, sea kayaking or just chilling out, you name it and you can have it all here.

An artist’s impression of the Shepherd’s Hut. Hand built to the highest quality, this really will be a very special glamping holiday!
The interior layout, bespoke and crafted to with every detail thought of. The dining-table very cleverly transforms into the sumptuous double bed with minimal effort.
The interior layout once the bed is in situ. A very skilful design, the bed hides away in an alcove, bedding and all during the day and with a pull of a handle, it comes back into place for night time
From the wide open sandy beaches beyond Ilfracombe to the cliffs and westerly reaches of the Exmoor National Park beyond Combe Martin, this setting is exceptional.
The beautiful natural harbour at Watermouth Bay lies at the foot of the hill that rises up to Lydford Farm, the setting for Wild Pear Shepherds' Hut.
