Slow down for a while at this luxurious shepherd’s hut hideaway, nestled deep in the rolling countryside between Dartmoor National Park and the Tamar Valley. Recline in the log-fired hot tub (there’s room for two) with nothing but patchwork farmlands on the horizon (and the occasional sheep or pony trotting by). Enjoy evenings roasting marshmallows on a fire pit (which handily doubles as your barbecue) beneath a blanket of stars - on a clear night, you can see right to the milky way. Or take things indoors to curl up on the sofa with a good book –⁠ the wood-burning stove (and central heating) will keep things toasty. And when it’s time to lay your head, a king-size bed adorned with crisp-white linens is waiting for a blissful night’s sleep. Should you ever be tempted to leave this little idyll, you’re just a thirteen-minute drive from the charming historic village of Tavistock. Mosey about its bustling shops, and if you time it right, the weekly farmers market. Then dive into the traditional inn for real ales, good upper-crust pub food, and a warm welcome.

About The Tamar Valley

Hugging the border between Cornwall and Devon, the Tamar Valley benefits from some of the best features of both counties – which is apt, given that it’s a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Host


This home is managed by Richard

This home is managed directly by a business. A member of their staff will be your point of contact before and during your stay. Your hosts, Richard and Sarah, loved the lands of their farm and estate so much they decided to share them with their guests. And with that, they decided to renovate the estate cottages and install some charming shepherd huts for you to enjoy the best of Devon and Cornwall, before taking on further properties across the South West. Creating a unique and luxurious holiday experience is their passion.

This home is nominated for the Plum Guide Award.
