Wild Pear Shepherd's Hut has panoramic sea views spread out right in front of you. A dramatic setting whatever the time of year.
An artist’s impression of the Shepherd’s Hut. Hand built to the highest quality, this really will be a very special glamping holiday!
The interior layout, bespoke and crafted to with every detail thought of. The dining-table very cleverly transforms into the sumptuous double bed with minimal effort.
The interior layout once the bed is in situ. A very skilful design, the bed hides away in an alcove, bedding and all during the day and with a pull of a handle, it comes back into place for night time
From the wide open sandy beaches beyond Ilfracombe to the cliffs and westerly reaches of the Exmoor National Park beyond Combe Martin, this setting is exceptional.
The beautiful natural harbour at Watermouth Bay lies at the foot of the hill that rises up to Lydford Farm, the setting for Wild Pear Shepherds' Hut.

The countryside is breathtaking and a real must to visit. Quaint shops, great pubs and beautiful walks through all kinds of terrain. Dogs are clearly very welcome which is a rarity in other areas of the south west.

Some of the finest coastal scenery in England, do not miss it! The Valley of the Rocks, a little further east, is particularly dramatic.

Nearest town

Ilfracombe (2 miles)

One of the most popular seaside resorts in Victorian times, Ilfracombe has recently undergone something of a renaissance, with some of the most elegant Victorian architecture having been restored. Damien Hirst’s new restaurant here has put the spotlight on the town and drawn food lovers from afar. Head down to the old harbour for the atmosphere, independent shops and boat trips over to Lundy Island.
