Otter's Holt with its wood-fired hot tub, pizza oven and patio area with fabulous countryside views.
What a delightful retreat!
Enjoy a dip in the hot tub while the pizza is cooking in the oven - bliss!
What a great facility to have! Logs for the pizza oven can be purchased from the owner for £5 a bag.
The living space is surprisingly spacious.
There are fabulous views from every window (and the stable door too!).
The king-size double bed is positioned at one end.

The bunk-beds can be used as a sitting-area too (the top bunk lifts up).
Great views from every angle.

The en suite shower-room is beautifully fitted.
In true luxury glamping style, there is hot running water, shower and proper flushing loo.
The cosy little wood-burner will keep you warm on cooler days (logs are inclusive).
More lovely homely touches.
And decorative pieces.
The bunk beds even have reading lamps for your convenience.
The owner kindly provides a courtesy pack for stays of a week of more.
A gorgeous retreat (you can just see the roof of Otter Holt's neighbour Beaver's Lodge, both have been made very private from eachother.
Cook up a scrummy pizza and dine al fresco.
There is a fire-pit barbecue provided too, perfect for toasting marshmallows!
Gather round together by day or night, this is a lovely feature.
These wooden steps lead from the glamping site down to the lower meadow, lake and network of footpaths beyond.
Take a picnic or relax in the lower meadow, it's such a beautiful setting.
There is an enclosed play area in the lower meadow.
Lots of fun to be had here!
The natural wildlife lake is in the lower meadow and is fully fenced but please take care with children.
The lower meadow is such a beautiful, spacious setting.
The lower meadow is where you can see the lakes and trees, and the whole area around it is for guests' sole use. The glamp-site can be seen above with Ottery St Mary in the distance.
A fabulous setting, with both retreats enjoying lovely views, just a short drive from the east Devon coast.
An idyllic rural location for a luxury glamping holiday.

We want to say thank you to Dave and Vicki for letting us use your little retreat in the heart of Ottery St Mary, we had the most fantastic time and came away well and truly relaxed. The facilities at Otters Holt Sheperds Hut exceeded our expectations, the little hamper of necesssities is a cute added extra and was very unexpected. The bed was very comfortable and the jacuzzi was fabulous! We cannot wait to return.

My boyfriend and I stayed here and we had an amazing few days! The hut, surroundings, hot tub and surrounding towns were amazing! We enjoyed going over to the farm and seeing the general day to day running, it was very insightful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay st Otters Holt! Thank you so much for making our stay memorable!

Otter's Holt was a perfect setting for a weekend away with my boyfriend, we loved every second of being there and wished for it not to end! Vicki and Dave were very helpful and lovely hosts. The Hut was beautifully decorated and everything was thought of to cater for our basic needs. Only thing that would have been useful was a plug socket or adapter for my hairdryer :) the hot tub was a big bonus along with the beautiful country surroundings in which to explore and relax in. A really lovely and relaxed weekend in all!

We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed your break in the shepherd's hut - it's great to be able to truly relax. The electricity is run from a solar panel system so quite happily powers the lights (the mini oven, hob and fridge are run on gas) but something like a hairdryer would be a little to much for the circuits so we ask guests to embrace the glamping lifestyle and go for the natural look during their stay!

We loved our stay! The hut was gorgeous and the perfect base for us and our little girl. It was well thought out and had relaxing, calming decor which perfectly complemented the idyllic countryside setting. The hot tub was a wonderful bonus as it enabled us to enjoy the surrounding views even though the weather wasn't as warm as we had hoped, but even so the weather didn't totally spoil our stay as the Hut was surprisingly warm and this made for a cosy feel! It shows that a Shepherd's Hut holiday need not depend on weather, despite being in the middle of a field! In fact, the location felt secluded and yet easily accessible from the road so it was perfect!

I'd like to have been able to plug my hairdryer in and the addition of a toaster or microwave for greater ease might have been handy but these are just minor points and didn't impact upon our enjoyment of our Shepherd's Hut experience!

We loved the Honesty Shop too - fab idea!

Have already recommended to friends! Classic Cottages made booking very easy and we felt confident with the process. It was good to receive a little printed pack in the post, for added reassurance.

Thumbs up for a very positive experience all round
