The Bowhay shepherd's hut is a seamless craftsmanship threading the right balance of retro and luxury. The hot tub is perfect for relaxing after a long hike. Alpacas are always happy to greet you when you arrive. We definitely plan on visiting again.

We had a lovely stay in the Shepherd’s hut. It exceeded our expectations in every way. We especially enjoyed the beautiful views and of course the hot tub. We can’t wait to come back and explore more of this beautiful part of the country.

We had a wonderful 5 days in Bowhay Shepherds Hut - like many others Covid19 meant we had to cancel several holidays (overseas and UK), so this was our first trip away this year. We were absolutely delighted from the moment we arrived until the moment we left - it was exactly what we needed! The views from the hut are beautiful and the location is excellent for walking. The hosts have equipped the hut extremely well and the outdoor hot tub is an added bonus. We fully intend to revisit next year.

This is a beautiful place to stay for a holiday. It's a great base from which to explore Devon. The hut is really comfortable and has spectacular views. This is the perfect holiday hut for a couple.
Mr King August 2020
The Bowhay shepherd hut was a delight to stay at and the location and views are second to none. Shops and facilities are all within a short drive and there is plenty to do around the hut.
We used the hot tub nearly every night and the views come alive when it is a clear night and all the stars come out.
The hosts were excellent and more than accommodating, especially given the COVID pandemic. Fresh eggs, milk and orange juice were a lovely addition. Likewise a large store or kindling and logs for the indoor fire and firepit gave us several uses throughout the week.
We'd highly recommend the hut to anyone thinking about an escape to the country and some relaxation time.

The Shepherds Hut at Bowhay is finished to an exceptionally high standard, complete with hot tub and amazing views. It exceeded all expectation, the added touch of providing fresh milk, eggs, orange juice and biscuits on arrival was a lovely gesture.
The hut itself is very well set out and offers ample storage areas, kitchen facilities and everything you can possibly need. The kitchen area was well stocked with utensils, cutlery and cleaning products. There is a selection of books/maps of the local area, tourist attraction information and board games also provided. Outside the hut, is a well placed hot tub, fire pit and seating area offering incredible views.
The location itself is great for exploring the local area and neighbouring towns/villages.
The accommodation and setting is a credit to the owners, both of who are very attentive and welcoming. We would not hesitate in recommending Bowhay and hope to return again in the future.
