This hand-crafted shepherd's hut is a back-to-nature romantic getaway not to be missed, even boasting a fabulous hot tub for two. Every detail has been thought through, from the double bed with lovely linen to the well-equipped kitchen and an en suite shower-room with hot running water and a flushing toilet. With under-floor heating and a wood-burner, it's the perfect place to relax, unwind and recharge at any time of the year. One of a pair of huts on this ancient farmland, Shepherd's Bliss is set in idyllic countryside, though if you feel the need to explore you are in the heart of a network of footpaths and country lanes, while Exeter, Dartmoor National Park and the beaches of north Devon are all close by.
There is only one way to end the day that's better than a glass of wine on the patio at Shepherd's Bliss – and that's in the hot tub, gazing up at the starry skies, breathing in the fresh air and drinking in the marvellous views. Shepherd's Bliss shares a field with Shepherd's Joy, but is placed to enjoy as much privacy as possible, and is well-equipped with everything you will need to enjoy your stay, both indoors and out. In addition to the hot tub there is a barbecue and a fire-pit, and even a wrought iron welly stand. Car parking is at the bottom of the path that leads down the gently sloping field, ensuring complete calm and quiet for this peaceful getaway – perhaps you will hear a fox or an owl, or glimpse a deer, a heron or a buzzard. Indoors, a warm red decorative theme (from the sweet patchwork quilt and the gingham curtains to the bright crockery, toaster and kettle) gives the hut a welcoming vibe, while every comfort you'll need is on hand, including a flat-screen TV, WiFi, fridge, towel warmer and double power socket.
Open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Wood-burner, TV, electric cooker (2 ring hob and mini oven), fridge (with ice-box), toaster, kettle and double bed
Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin
Please note due to the location near the lake and the steps up to the hut, Shepherd's Bliss is not suitable for children under 10 although babies up to six months old (non crawlers) are welcome. *A cot is not provided, bring your own travel cot.
