This is a beautiful property in a stunning location that really is as good as it looks in the photographs!

Loved our stay sat every night with the doors open a glass of wine breathing the sea air and taking in the breathtaking views. So peaceful even with the campsite below a place to escape from it all

The shepherd’s hut is well designed, well equipped comfortable and with a wonderful view.

Absolutely lovely Shepherds Hut .. high end finish home from home .. an awesome turquoise sea view and star gazing was beautiful on clear nights. Wonderfully relaxing and a unique experience. Ideally located for the South West Coastal Path ????

Couldn't recommend the sheperds hut enough. I wished we could stay longer, so many beautiful beaches and things to see and do, at the same time we loved appreciating the views and cosiness of the sheperds hut, will definetley be booking again at some point!

A wonderful relaxing stay! The hut was clean, well equipped and cozy. The location was perfect, views from the hut were stunning with easy access to costal walks to Ilfracombe and Combe Martin.

Thoroughly enjoyed my birthday break at Wild Pear Shepherds Hut. The weather was awful for three out of our four days but the hut is so cosy, warm, well equipped and comfortable that it honestly didn’t matter, if anything it added to the ambiance! Ideally situated for the coast path which was our main reason for booking. Sian and Nick were fabulous, kind and accommodating. The welcome basket was fabulous and communication was excellent. Thank you very much!

Absolutely stunning location and gorgeous shepherds hut, perfect for an intimate, romantic getaway. Would highly recommend and it was amazing to see the stars from the window of the hut on a clear night. It was wonderful and Sian and Nick were so friendly, can’t wait to come back!

Not much to say - I Don't remember having any problems

Loved this Shepherd’s hut. The location and views were stunning and the hut had everything you could need for your stay. The perfect place for a bit of time out.

If you are looking for a quiet place with a very good view, this is the right place for you. The next larger town is Ilfracombe and very fast and easy to reach, also on foot. Only our bicycles were not used, as the roads and paths do not invite you to cycle. But it wasn't so bad either. It is definitely a very beautiful landscape. We would love to come back.

What a perfect location! 180 degree sea view, and so peaceful! The accommodation was immaculate too. We will definitely be back!

Great stay for a romantic few days. Great walking, amazing views

Thank you for a wonderful stay. We loved this property and would definitely return. It was so peaceful with fabulous sea views and within easy reach of the coast path and other activities. Hut was ideal for two people and the bed was surprisingly large and comfy (with an awesome view to wake up to).

found it easy to use / book with no issues at all.

Easy to use.

It was absolutely fantastic. We loved the beautiful views, and the hut itself was stunning! It was equipped with everything we could possibly need for a cosy home-from-home. The little goody basket was lovely too, what a personal touch. The local apple juice was especially delicious! It was such a bonus having your own little ensuite bathroom too - especially the heated towel rail and the lovely smelling toiletries. We will definitely be recommending your shepherds' huts to our friends.

Fantastic place, would recommend to everyone, would love to come back in the summer. Great host and a lovely welcome package, just wish we’d stayed longer.

We are so glad to read that you would recommend Wild Pear Shepherd's Hut - that's so great to see. We are sure that the hosts were delighted with your comments. We hope to welcome you back in the future for a longer stay. Sarah, Customer Support

Absolutely beautiful stay. Owner Sian - lovely lady very welcoming. First time of staying in a hut and what a breath of fresh air it was. The views... Incredible!

Wild Pear is a beautiful Shepherds Hut. It is beautifully finished and has the benefits of a lovely shower room. The shower was better than many that I've used in cottages. The Hut is eco friendly, I understand that it's insulated with sheeps wool. Whilst there is an electric heater it was not necessary to use even though the temperature dipped in the evening (mid September stay). The view was gorgeous as is North Devon. Whilst the welcome hamper was appreciated do bring breakfast items.

Fabulous views!

Wild pear was in a beautiful location. The views were stunning. It was spotlessly clean and welcoming with a basket of goodies and a vase of flowers. Sian was friendly and helpful. Abundance of hot water and a great shower. The walk to the pub was through the field and down a track, then across the road to walk for 10 minutes but it was only open Wednesday to Sunday. Altogether a peaceful retreat.

Wild Pear is a charming shepherds hut with fabulous sea views and the host has ensured there are plenty of home comforts. Great place to stay.

Excellent Stay again at Wild Pear Shepherd's Hut and it was just as good as the last stay Great Hosts and super Location with Stunning views overlooking the Sea. We will be back..

Loved it.......

Amazing hut to hire. First class in cleanliness. The bed was so comfortable. Everything we needed was provided for, all except a microwave. And of course the peacefulness and view's were the icing on the cake. Loved it.

Everything. Beautiful setting and very well appointed shepherds hut - the bed and bedding were top notch and the towel rail and electric heater were very efficient. Touches such as the generous hamper of goods from the farm shop and a little vase of flowers were lovely. Our host was also very helpful in trying to find a solution to a problem I had. Lots of logs available for the stove and fire pit.

A wonderful and unique 3 night stay at Wild Pear! It rained and rained and rained, but we felt very cosy in the hut with the log burner on, plus the leaflet pack gave us loads of day out ideas despite the weather. Also, anyone around the 6ft mark need not to worry about hitting heads. The hut has a high ceiling throughout the living space and bathroom, so only the doorways to worry about. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, will recommend and return when possible!

The position and views are fantastic and the shepherds hut was just perfect, we loved everything about it and would definitely return

The Shepherd's Hut was just perfect for us with Stunning sea views and lovely countryside surrounding us. First time we ever been in a Shepherd's Hut and must say it has changed our minds about Travelling anymore as we usually Fly or Cruise around the world.. Arrived back home after 5 nights totally refreshed.. Thank you to Nick and Sian for looking after us and we hope to return next year.. David and Rosemary Smith Horsham, West Sussex

This is a lovely location and property. Excellent spot to get away.

Friendly, helpful and welcoming. Fantastic views, good walks, peaceful location.

Loved the welcome basket with milk in the fridge on arrival - very thoughtful. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. Loved the fresh pastries from the campsite shop in the morning. Great location for the nearby beaches. The hut was very well equipped with a comfortable bed. Would definitely recommend. We will be back!

Stunning panoramic sea view from the hut, which is beautifully decorated and cosy. Super relaxing and picturesque place for a break away from it all. Pub and boat café a short walk away from the hut. We walked the coastal path to Ilfracombe and went further afield in the car to Instow for a day trip. We only stayed for a weekend but there are lots of places to visit and more coastal path to walk close by. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful stay in the Wild Pear Shepherd's Hut. A rustic-feeling yet very modern and comfortable cabin - two induction hobs with a whistling kettle, a fridge, a toaster, an electric shower and all the crockery and cutlery you'll need. Don't pack too heavily - there's limited wardrobe space, but definitely enough to get by. The pull-down bed gave us our best sleep in months and it was gorgeous to wake up in the middle of the night and hear the rain on the roof. The coastal path offers walks right from the front door that take in wooded areas and seaside, and local towns Combe Martin and Ilfracombe are close by car (or a walk if you're up for it). Siân was a brilliant host - booking us tables for the local restaurants and giving lots of great local advice. We'd definitely come back :)

Booked Wild Pear Shepherds hut for my girlfriend and I, and we had a wonderful week. Situated high on the hillside and just below the farm, it has a fabulous view out to sea, and was so peaceful. Plenty of wonderful walks along the coastline, and spotted a few Porpoise in the bay and the occasional Peregrine Falcon. The outside seating area was perfect for the evenings, when the farmyard chickens would pop by like clockwork. Will certainly be back.

Fabulous little hut with amazing views, good pubs and local bus service.

Charming Shepard’s hut in a wonderful location. Easy to find and great access to sites and attractions.

We had a fantastic stay at WildPear Sheperds Hut. The accocomodation was very clean and an extremely high standard of furnishing. We were so cozy with the gorgeous log burner. Plenty to do in the surrounding areas if you can tear yourselves away from the stunning views!

We were so very happy with the overall standard of the property and all it’s furnishi gs the location was breathtaking plus the host was helpful and as a little extra had left us a very welcome basket of local goodies to enjoy .... thank you. Great fire pit complimentary firewood and kindling Amazing electric shower Fabulous sea views from your bed ...... a room with a view indeeed !!!

Fantastic location, wonderful views, very cosy hut, that exceeded our expectations. Beautiful landscape, friendly owners and lovely chickens, that visited us from time to time. We will be back!

Very nice place to stay. Beautiful spot and nice owners. When you wake up in the morning, the first thing you see is the sea. We loved it !
