A brilliant location and setting to stay in a shepherds hut that gives you peace from the madding crowds.

September 2020

The stargazy shepherd's hut was lovely, stunning location with gorgeous sunsets every night and some lovely visits from Twiggy the very friendly & cuddly dog. Had a very relaxing fabulous stay

August 2020

Stargazy Sky was quiet, peaceful and private with beautiful views. The owners were friendly but unobtrusive and their inquisitive dog was a delightful, unexpected added extra - so cute! Warm and cosy despite Storm Francis!!!

We loved our stay at the hut - the setting is lovely and peaceful, and we enjoyed cooking outside each evening. The location was a great base to explore local areas and the coast - would absolutely recommend staying here!

July 2020

The perfect location for a getaway in the truest sense. Well kitted out and with great views. I'll be back.

July 2020

Stargazy Sky was exactly how it looked in the pictures, beautifully kept and super cosy! It was perfect for a relaxed stay visiting the Jurassic coast every day and coming back to barbecue on the fire pit in the evenings. Well located for Lyme Regis and other seaside villages nearby with a useful Tesco 5mins drive from the hut. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for chilled holiday of walks, watching films and sitting out watching the sun go down.

January 2020

We had a great time and Mel was so lovely and helpful. We couldn’t recommend this beautiful cottage and area enough. Thanks so much for having us! Hopefully we will be back.

We had a lovely stay at Stargazy Sky shepherds Hut. It’s the perfect place to relax and unwind. We loved the cosy feel, especially when the log burner was lit and for us the advantage of having a TV was the perfect excuse to snuggle up on the bed, watch Strictly Come Dancing regardless of the weather outside.

September 2019

Perfect place for peace and tranquillity, the owners (Mel & Charles) were very warm & friendly and informative. Lovely to have the sound of nothing but wildlife especially our friendly owl! The hut is well equipped and very comfortable and having water from a spring to drink and bath in has been wonders for our skin. The duck eggs and fig preserve and apples that were left for us by the hosts were a lovely touch, fir preserve was amazing (made by the owners). The hut is on the grounds of the owners property, you are very secluded and left to enjoy your stay, and soak up the views, secluded, quiet and tranquil Thank you to Mel & Charles for a such a calm and relaxing break, you have a little heaven! Tracy & Sam (Surrey)

July 2019

Just an excellent base to explore the surrounding area. We enjoyed our experience at River Cottage HQ and dining at River Cottage Canteen. Just a short drive to Lyme Regis and into Bridport where we experienced the Folk Festival and market stalls There was a lovely selection of produce at Millers Farm shop in Axminster

June 2019

This experience was something new to us, and we were a little unsure when we booked. But wow, it was truly exceptional. One of the best, if not thee best, short vacation we have had. The setting is magnificent, made in heaven. The owners were perfect. And as for the Sheperd’s Hut, we instantly fell in love. The evenings were spectacular, watching the sun go down, then sitting by the fire pit under the stars. If you want to really get away from it all, then the Stargazy Sky Sheperd’s Hut is an absolute must.

May 2019

Delightful rural location in complete privacy. Excellent centre for touring North Deven and Dorset. Just lovely.

April 2019

Amazing place with everything you need!

March 2019

Perfect little hut in a remote local but close enough to civilisation if you wanted it. Waking up and opening the stable doors to the valley below even on a wet day was perfect. We would have been happy enough to be rained in in such a snug and warm hut. Didn't want to leave and cant wait return.

September 2018

The shepherds hut was wonderful. A delight to wake up seeing deer outside the window whilst enjoying a cup of coffee. The hut is fairly small but ideal for 2 people and because excellent use has been made of all space you had everything you could need for a self catering holiday in a peaceful location.

August 2018

Rating at the Stargazer Shepherds Hut was a wonderful experience, ideally situated to access the Jurassic Coastline, set in beautiful surroundings, peace and tranquility assured. Cat say enough good things about our stay .

August 2018

The Shepherds hut is a magical place. Well located for walks and near to beaches and towns to visit. Definitely would recommend Ford Abbey to wander around the lovely gardens and Rousden Village Bakery for a fabulous breakfast.

I also did a firepit cookery course and River Cottage which was great fun.

Amazing sunsets at the hut, peaceful and quiet. Wonderful place to recharge the batteries..... All perfect inside the hut and everything you need.Had a visit from a couple of beautiful deer!

I shall return as soon as I can......

July 2018

Stargazy Sky Shepherds Hut is a little Gem . Everything was perfect and it is exactly how it looks in the pictures the Helen and Charles are really lovely people and there dogs are lovely as well .

Will be coming back , didn't really want to come home , came home with some steaks as well :)

July 2018

A wonderful secluded, beautiful space both inside and outside the hut. Ideal for an individual’s or couple’s hideaway retreat.

May 2018

Really lovely comfortable property in an idyllic location. Extremely we'll appointed with excellent quality furnishings and accessories.

May 2018

The isolated location, friendliness of owners, the view and the outside woodburner. The inside was very well fitted out and, although small, everything that was needed was there. In addition, we were able to purchase some steaks (from the owner's rare breed cattle) which were positively delicious. Also there were complimentary eggs (duck and bantams) which were beautifully fresh. Lots of wildlife around and very quiet and restful. Within easy distance of a lot of excellent places to visit in Devon, Dorset and Somerset.

April 2018

We had a really wonderful stay at Stargazy Sky. Welcoming, yet unintrusive hosts, the hut was the perfect place to get away from it all and unwind. It is small but perfectly formed. We would absolutely recommend a stay here!

February 2018

We liked everything about this property and its owners. You can't ask for more!

December 2017

It is very convenient for attending events at River Cottage HQ.

October 2017

The Shepherd's hut was beautifully finished, clean, and it had everything and more than expected during our stay. The owners have really thought about what is needed and it really is a home away from home. The location is stunning, the views were just breathtaking. The farm situation is also lovely and very easily walkable into Axminster. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family. We loved it so much we are returning for new years eve. The hosts are also really lovely and very accomodating and a real credit to themselves. Thank you so much!

Hut is lovely, hosts excellent

August 2017

Absolutely loved our stay at Stargazey hut - its small but perfectly formed and beautifully kitted out. The location is ideal for exploring the Jurassic coast and beyond.

August 2017

Great place for a away from it all break, but near enough to shops and attractions too should you want them.

June 2017

A beautifully designed and decorated shepherds hut hidden down country lanes. The perfect place to unwind and get away from it all. It was comfy and cosy and had everything we needed for a relaxing break. The nearby towns of Lyme Regis, Beer and Sidmouth were great seaside towns to visit for the day and to stock up with provisions. The evenings were spent by the fire pit and BBQ whilst watching the brown cows meaner through the fields. A truly great way to unwind.

June 2017

Lovely Shepherds hut, in a great location. Excellently furnished with everything you need for your stay. Mel the owner is friendly and helpful - and her Duck eggs were perfect for breakfast !

May 2017

Had a fantastic time at the Stargazy Sky Shepherd's Hut. Views and sunsets outstanding...majority of my photos were on the sunsets. All our friends and family were jealous of the secluded spot we had. Will be going back for more in the near future... Kevin & Julie Anne

March 2017

I had a fantastic time at this property exploring the south coast. It was everything I was after and I would definitely return again. Thank you.

February 2017

Wonderful views, great surroundings, helpful owners and local produce. Highly recommend the farm shop near by and the steak from the owners!!

January 2017

Wow! Friendly welcome, Beautifully built furnished, comfortable, qwerky, lovely Shephard hut with cosey log fire, comfy bed. The stars at night and the views were magical. The owners made us feel like extended family living at the bottom of the garden, nothing was too much trouble. We arrived New Year's Day after a wonderful NYE in Lymme Regis. Waiting for us in the fridge were local produced beers/ciders, wine, champagne, bacon eggs, an Amazing beef provincial stew,home made from the gorgeous Red Cows. Even though it was frosty and cold being January the log burner kept us warm. It was so pretty and breathtaking going for walks. Definitely recommend a stay here and we will definitely be returning soon. Love Paul & Alex.

A fantastic lodge which is maintained to a very high standard. Excellent for a secluded getaway.

The owners also sell high quality locally reared beef that is delicious, a must buy for anyone using the Stargazy Sky Hut.
