Mrs Hodges June 2023
The owners at Ashley's shack are so welcoming and lovely. The welcome pack and honey from the hives were much appreciated.
Bed very comfortable. Would recommend this property for a weeks stay
Mr Dalton May 2023
Ashley's is more than a 'shack', it's a little paradise! The log burner creates a warm cosy space on damp days and the setting could not be more delightful. The decor and furnishings are beautiful too and we completely unwound and recharged there. It's a rare find in this busy commercial world. Thank you so much for our stay.
Mr Dexter March 2023
Neil and Lynne are the most lovely and welcoming hosts. We were treated like friends the second we booked. We had a basketful of logs for the burner and even a welcome hamper with cheeses, chutneys, eggs and milk. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The cabin was beautiful, airy and just what we wanted. No tv or wifi was a bonus. We plan on going back and can see why so many people go back time after time.
Mr Jakobsen December 2022
Great cozy cottage in the Devon countryside. The cottage had all amenities we needed and the welcome basket with local specialities was a nice surprise. The cottage is located in a very nice garden with a duck pond. The area nearby is perfect for hikes combined with visits to local pubs. The hosts were also were friendly and helpfull. Highly recommended!

We enjoyed our week in Ashley’s Shack and have no hesitation in recommending it to other couples. We’d like to thank the owners for the generous welcome pack which was very much appreciated and for being such friendly and helpful hosts.
Mrs Cundall September 2022
We spent a peaceful week at Ashley’s Shack enjoying the secluded woodland with view of the small lake, ducks , free range hens. The cottage , though small was beautifully furnished and had everything we needed. Our hosts, Lynne and Neil, we’re very friendly and helpful, carrying our luggage to the shack and providing a welcome basket which included eggs from their hens and honey from their hives. We would thought recommend Ashley’s Shack.

Mrs Marshall September 2021
From first meeting our hosts Lynne and Neil, we knew we had struck gold. Ashley’s shack was a beautiful place to stay. There was great attention to detail including our suitcases being transported up to our shack and a wonderful welcome pack with the most delicious local cheeses and freshly laid eggs from the free ranging hens. We explored many gorgeous beaches and enjoyed local seafood. We have stayed in many quirky places but this has been one of the best. We make a rule never to stay at the same place more than once but this will be an exception.
Mr Thomas August 2021
Overall, we loved it, felt very homely, and comfortable, liked no TV, maybe provide a radio??

This was a beautiful little getaway home, relaxing and hidden away. The shack was well thought out, clean and beds super comfy, great for a rainy evening in and the barbecue great for a warm night out. Owners super helpful and very friendly would highly recommend this location :)
Miss Morgan June 2021
Exceeded expectations! Hosts were really friendly and if we needed anything were always around to help out without being intruding. Also the bed is the comfiest bed we’ve slept in ??

Ashley’s shack was absolutely gorgeous - such a lovely, peaceful location with views out over the lake. Lynne and Neill were excellent hosts and genuinely lovely people. We would definitely come back - thanks again
Mrs Love April 2021
Beautiful location overlooking a pond with lots of wildlife. Situated close to a main road which was noisy at times but the property, view of the pond and friendly hosts absolutely made up for it.
Mr Averill October 2020
Ashleys shack is pure perfection and the ideal opportunity to escape. The owners, Lynne and Neil were very welcoming and very attentive to our needs. The shack was immaculately clean and extremely comfortable and had everything that was needed to self cater for the weekend. We will definetly look to return in the near future. Thank you
Miss Waller July 2020
This is a lovely property in a beautiful location. The hosts are extremely kind and helpful. We had a great time. I particularly loved sitting on the patio having breakfast in the morning in the sunlight.
Mr Thorn July 2020
The holiday was all we expected and more.
It is really well looked after property, in a peaceful location with ducks, sheep and chickens all close at hand...an ideal antidote to city life!
Neil and Lynne were perfect hosts, we will happily visit the shack again in the future.
Mrs Shipway October 2017
A lovely little Hideaway, perfect place for getting back to nature. The welcome pack was exceptional - full of local goodies - cheeses, pickles, honey, flapjack, cookies. It was so nice to have no TV and Wi-fi - we rediscovered the radio! The shack is well placed for trips to all the local beauty spots including Dartmouth, Salcombe and Totnes. The owners were lovely; helpful yet unitrusive - just what you want. Thank you
Mrs Sidders September 2017
We loved the welcome basket of goodies and the helpful friendly attitude of our hosts without being intrusive. The Shack was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. We also loved the fact that there was no television! Delightful place to stay, lovely surroundings, friendly helpful hosts and a good base from which to explore this beautiful area.
Mrs Westall June 2017
A little piece of heaven.

A perfect holiday thanks
Miss Knight September 2016
Fantastic retreat for two! Beautiful scenery and lovely welcoming owners, who are very helpful. Great location making travel for days out very easy as marvelous locations are all around. This little shack will be a wonderful stay any time of the year and with the log burner, I can imagine a winter trip would be gorgeous in the evenings! Would love tonstay again.
Miss Miskimmon July 2016
Ashley's shack is wonderful. It is beautifully decorated in the most fabulous central location and the hosts are the most lovely considerate couple you could ask for. I highly recommend a stay at this little patch of heaven
Mr Jenkins May 2016
Ashley's Shack is a beautiful property situated in an ideal location in south Devon. The owners/hosts are wonderfully relaxed and welcoming (even when arriving late in the evening) and have furnished and decorated the property beautifully. Having a gas BBQ on the decking is a perfect way to experience glamping but with the comfort of your own bathroom, log burning fire and all linen/towels included. We had the most wonderful stay and can't wait to back to explore more of the area.
