Shepherd's Delight is reached down your own  little private track. A solar panel powers the  lighting (there is no other source of electricity).
You are welcome to wander the owners' 60 acres of organic farmland (please take care with and keep your dog(s) on a lead around any livestock). This little stile takes you up to a lovely field.
Autumnal sunset on the lake - stunning.

This is Sidmouth, a wonderful Regency seaside town around 40 minutes away.
The far end of the beach at Budleigh Salterton (just over 30 minutes away), where the River Otter joins the sea. The river, banks and reed beds are wonderful places for nesting birds.

Why not venture a little further (around an hour's drive) to the sheltered harbour at Lyme Regis on the east Devon/Dorset border.
