MRS MORTON June 2022
Gorgeous shepherd hut in beautiful surroundings. The hut was very clean and very well equipped. Larger than the usual shepherd hut. We loved relaxing in the hot tub in the peaceful surroundings. The owners are very friendly and close by if needed by they didn't disturb our privacy. It is a beautiful place to relax and recharge your batteries. Will definitely return.
Mr Jones June 2022
My partner and I had a lovely few days in the Shepherd’s hut over the jubilee bank holiday. It was so relaxing and comfortable. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and we loved everything about it. We would definitely go back, and will definitely recommend. Thank you!
Mrs Rivers May 2022
Wonderful Shepherds Hut, If you’re reading this review and are thinking of booking, don’t hesitate, book it, we had a wonderful w/e and the hot tub was the icing on the cake
Mrs Lewis May 2022
5 million stars. Truly exceptional. The shepherds hut is situated in a beautiful orchard just above some picturesque woodland in a peaceful rural village with a great pub and local walks . Having booked somewhere before through classic we thought it would be really lovely but horseshoe still exceeded our expectations by a long way. The shepherds hut itself is spacious, taller than I was expecting and beautifully kitted out. The hot tub is lush we must have spent hours out there. The owners have really gone the extra mile to make guests feel completely comfortable and pampered and they are very friendly but seem to have got the perfect balance between hospitality when you arrive and leave and perfect privacy during your stay. Thank you for all the treats and for the most blissful long weekend. It feels like a dream now. When we next have the opportunity we will be booking again and if we can deal with the envy then we will recommend to everyone we know. Thanks again.
Mrs Cooper April 2022
This was the best Shepherd's Hut we have stayed in - the quality and comfort of the accommodation was excellent, the location beautiful and the welcome very warm. Everything was perfect and we will be back - thank you
Mr Smith March 2022
Our second visit, absolutely love this shepherd's hut, within minutes of arrival we found ourselves completely chilled. So many extra special touches, hot tub ready to jump into, and prosecco chilling in the fridge, what more could we ask for. We will definitely book again
Mr Green March 2022
Horseshoe Shepherds Hut is beautiful inside and out. It is well equipped and finished to a really high standard. Nikki and Spence have decorated and furnished the hut perfectly. You feel at home as soon as you arrive. Strongly recommend! Mike and Jan
Mrs Ward February 2022
Owners were exceptionally helpful and the Shepherds hut was so cosy and warm and set in beautiful surroundings. The pub two doors away has very friendly Landlord and serves excellent food and lovely atmosphere.
Mr Mann December 2021
We had a lovely stay over the Christmas period, Nikki and Spencer made sure we had a good time with extra Christmas decorations, a lovely small tree and a card and gift for us, we would definitely come back again if we decide to holiday in the area again. The property was ideal for two, we had access to Netflix which was ideal for Christmas Day as it rained all day and most things were shut of course so we didn’t venture out, the hot tub was a plus too !
ms Taplin December 2021

Lovely place for a getaway. Both Nicki and Spencer were so accommodating and happy to help to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely be returning xx
Miss Coles November 2021
We absolutely loved our stay at the Shepherds Hut and have already recommended it to family and friends. It was the perfect relaxing birthday break, and we are so pleased we got there finally after several changes due to COVID! We couldn't fault anything; the hut was so warm and cosey; the hosts lovely and friendly and really cared about the little details and us enjoying our stay; the amenities were perfect - we loved the hot tub and log burner in the evenings and exploring during the day. Already looking forward to a visit in 2022!
Mrs Pugh November 2021
Simply the best! Still!!
Mr Mills November 2021
Wow, what an amazing place. We had the best time and cannot wait to re-book for next year. The hut was so comfortable, we loved the hot tub, log burner and outdoor fire pit. The affectionate cat Zeus stayed over a couple of nights for sleepovers, we loved the snuggles! We felt so at home here, Nikki and Spence are great hosts, the Prosecco and scones provided were a lovely treat. See you next year!

Ms Rooke September 2021
Lovely peaceful tranquil place for couples. The hot tub is lovely at the end of a day out and about.
Miss Padfield September 2021
Very friendly welcoming. The hut is finished very nicely with great decor. Very peaceful. A great, relaxing holiday. Would recommend to anyone.
Miss White September 2021
We absolutely loved our stay at horseshoe, we were so sad to leave. We booked it as a staycation for our honey moon, and it didn’t disappoint. Nicki and Spence were so welcoming, and their extra touches were so appreciated by us. Zeus the cat adds that bit more ‘homely’ feel as he turns up every time you get back from a day out. The location is amazing, it’s around 50 minutes away from Lynmouth, which is honestly the most breathtaking walk we’ve ever been on, absolutely blown away. We will miss our evenings on the swing chair, and in the hot tub watching the stars, and will certainly be back! Thanks so much again To Nicki and Spence, and classic for the best location. We will certainly be back!
Mr Lister July 2021
Pictures do not do the accommodation justice. This is a location where you can chill and relax away from the hustle and bushels of everyday life.
Mr Wilson June 2021
Rarely do you come across a property, where someone has thought about almost everything you are likely to need. Unique property in a unique location. Excellent! We will certainly be back.
Mrs Carey May 2021
The owners Nikki and Spence were really nice hosts and were available if we had any questions.
Mr Smith May 2021
We both thought this shepherds hut was absolutely stunning, everything was of high quality. The location was brilliant, plenty of walks and a local pub and shop. Definitely rebooking, felt totally rejuvenated after our stay. These owners have got it spot on
Dr Gonzalez April 2021
A true gem in North Devon. We cannot speak highly enough of the Horseshoe Shepherds Hut and the welcoming homely atmosphere that Nikki and Spence have created.
The generosity shown, with homemade scones, biscuits and bubble on arrival was second to none. A detailed pack of walks and pubs around the area was very much appreciated, whilst the secluded hot tub to look at the stars each night was so special.
This really is a unique and beautiful location in Devon, matched only by its hosts. We look forward to many more adventures here.
Mrs Jupp September 2020
such a lovely place, so many little touches and attention to detail.
Mrs O’brien September 2020
We had a lovely stay at the Shepherds Hut. It is set in a beautiful location and was the perfect place to relax and unwind. The hot tub and BBQ were lovely additions. We would definitely recommend and hope to return,
Mr Dashwood September 2020
We had an absolutely lovely stay at the Shepherds Hut. Nikki and Spence the owners were so welcoming and they’ve really built a little slice of heaven in the countryside. The pictures don’t do it justice. Exactly what we wanted for our week away, and we’re sure we’ll be looking to stay again!
Mr Kelly September 2020
It felt like a little piece of heaven. So beautiful& tranquil.
Mrs Thomas August 2020
Don’t know where to start! The place and everything about it was just amazing!! Nikki and Spence were super hosts, really lovely couple. The hot tub was great after a day of exploring. Every little detail was spot on, everything you would need was there. The bathroom was so spacious and the bed was very comfy. I would highly recommend and will definitely be going back
Miss Ormonde July 2020
We had a truly wonderful stay at The Horseshoe. It exceeded our expectations more than we could have imagined and Nikki & Spence went above and beyond to make our trip a very special one. We had booked this trip as a substitute for what should have been our wedding day and honestly couldnt have asked for a better way to spend it, all our wedding blues were banished from the start right up until the end of our stay.
We cannot recommend The horseshoe enough and Nikki and Spence were the ultimate super hosts. We will be sure to return!
Miss Allen July 2020
We had the most lovely, relaxing and special break at your beautiful lodge. Nicki and Spence were so hospitable and friendly which made us feel very at home. Also, very kindly they left us some lovely treats (Prosecco, scones & chocolates) to start our break which were very well received : ) We did some lovely walks and runs to the river, and the local pub does amazing pizza on a Wednesday..! The hot tub and the beautiful garden made the lodge stand out for us. And we really enjoyed our daily visit from Zeus the family cat. Would highly recommend and hope to make it back there again :) Caroline & Dean xx
Mr Boxall February 2020
We had a lovely stay in February at Nikki & Spence's beautiful secluded hut. Its the best hut we have stayed at and we plan to go back when the weather is better. Great location for cycling, walking and running so was perfect for us! The Exeter Inn (very close by) is a lovely cosy pub, we enjoyed good service and a lovely meal for two. James & Rachael
Mr Jones December 2019
The hosts were amazing. Prosecco and tiffin on arrival. Lovely varied selection of teas and coffees available too. Fab hot tub. Great pub serving food 200m away. It was our birthday and they even made us a cake. Couldn’t fault them. Would love to visit again.
Miss Holness October 2019
This was better than we could ever have imagined! And the owners are the nicest people you will ever meet. We will one thousand present be back and I recommend to All! The attention to details is insane! And there are woods at the end of the garden with a beautiful stream and we even got to see deer. I wish we could give this place more stars because we have never been anywhere nearly as good as this!
Mrs Pugh August 2019
Likely to be the best SH you've ever stayed in - definitely better than the average.........................:)
Mrs Clayton August 2019
The Horseshoe Shepherd’s hut was truly delightful and we felt very privileged to be its first guests. Set in a lovely orchard we relished the tranquility and peace of the countryside and watching the birds and other wildlife surrounding us. The owners Nikki and Spence could not have been more friendly and helpful. The hut itself is beautifully finished to the highest standard and the hugely generous welcome pack of goodies included home made scones and bread and lots more besides. The village and surrounding area is stunning with several lovely pubs to eat out and despite being so rural it’s not far from the beaches and other popular tourist attractions should you wish to strike out. Would definitely recommend.
