Lie low for a while at this Devonshire countryside retreat, nestled deep within a sprawling 86-acre estate. This lovingly hand-crafted shepherd’s hut is meticulously designed throughout to offer every creature comfort you could imagine. Surprisingly spacious, expect pristine, restful interiors – all wrapped up in a whimsical feature wallpaper adding just the right touch of rural romance. Kickstart your day in the sleek, modern shower room, then curl up on the sofa to enjoy toast and freshly-brewed coffee – best served with those double doors wide open to take in the uninterrupted countryside vistas outside. As night falls, cosy up beside the firepit (which handily doubles as your barbeque for alfresco meals) for an evening of stargazing and marshmallow roasting – on a clear evening, you might even catch a shooting star. In chiller months, take things inside and pull up a pew at the granite-clad bar area as you rustle up a meal in the made-for-action kitchen. The wine fridge will keep your tipple perfectly chilled, while the underfloor heating will keep your toes toasty. Cosy up in front of the TV and while away an evening with a relaxing movie night. Should you ever wish to leave this charming nook for two, you’ll find the historic town of Tavistock is just a five-minute drive away, where you’ll find bustling shops, restaurants, and an award-winning gastro-pub complete with a sunny beer garden. Or up the ante and take off into the beautiful wilds of Dartmoor National Park and the Tamar Valley (both less than half an hour's drive away) – you’re perfectly placed equidistance from them both.

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. The most spectacular way to take in its charming landscapes is via the Tamar Valley Line, a scenic railway that soars over the River Tamar.

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.
