This is just what the doctor ordered....Peace and quiet and just a short walk to the delightful tarka trail. This place is a gem and the shepherds hut you will never want to leave.

We felt right at home. It was lovingly decorated and decorated and the garden was beautiful and was laid out with love. We were greeted with homemade scones and the kitchen was stocked with everything necessary for the first day. Milk and Misli. Also the personal reception was very cordial. It was a very relaxing stay and we enjoyed the peace and nature. In Larkworthy Retreat we were able to decelerate in all comfort.

Larkworthy retreat is what it says, a beautiful, peaceful place to stay with excellent hosts in Gill and Will and their extended family of horses and dogs. A brilliant base from which to tour North and South Devon without having to drive to far. From sitting on the veranda having breakfast to sitting out on the patio surrounded by Gills home grown flowers in the evening listening to the owls with a glass of wine and looking at the dark starry sky on a clear night, this was a place you could truly relax.

The pictures of Larkworthy Retreat do not do it justice. It truly is an amazing place to stay. The hut itself is out of this world. My partner who is a carpenter himself couldnt fault the craftmanship, the build. Gill made us feel extremely welcome and relaxed. The grounds are so peaceful and relaxing. It really is a wonderful place to stay, Gill & Will should be very proud. We will be returning.

Liked the fresh flowers from the garden. Watching the birds at the feeders. The cream tea when we arrived and the home made biscuits. Also liked the horses in the field.

This is a wonderful place to stay. The shepherd's hut is surprisingly spacious and the outdoor space is amazing. It has everything you need for a relaxing holiday and is very comfortable. We brought our dog and she enjoyed walks in the fields on the smallholding and on the nearby Tarka Trail. It's a good location for getting to the North Devon and North Cornwall beaches. The owners are really friendly and provided thoughtful touches like scones, clotted cream and jam on arrival and homemade biscuits. The accommodation feels private as it is in its own field away from the house and cottage, next to the stables. Would definitely recommend!

Beautiful & clean wagon in a lovely peaceful area. Well equipped with everything we needed. Lots of things to do in the area and not too far from the beaches. The owners were friendly & helpful.

An absolutely gorgeous wagon in an idyllic setting. Lovely friendly welcome then left to enjoy the peace and tranquility. So close to dog friendly walks on the Tarka Trail. Fantastic break we didn't want to leave. Will definitely be booking up again

I go away twice a year and this is my first experience using Classic Cottages. How I have never stumbled upon them before I'll never know! Easy and crisp website, excellent pictures, a plethora of properties to choose from and a friendly service. Excellent.

The wagon is in a lovely place, quite and peaceful, it has everything you could want and is very comfortable. The owners Gill and Will were there if needed and the cream tea welcome was lovely. We will return.
