If you're looking for a countryside getaway with a bit of a twist, why not try one of these boutique shepherd's lodges found in a green plot just outside the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Although they may look rustic from the outside, you can be sure that you won't be skimping on the luxuries here. There's a wood-burning fireplace to keep the interior toasty and warm, as well as some chic design touches, like the faux fur rug and floral blinds. The kitchen might be on the compact side, but there's everything you need to rustle up simple dinners. Besides, there's a barbecue out on the terrace if you fancy cooking alfresco, plus a table for enjoying your efforts out in the open air. Once plates have been cleared away, you can light up the fire pit or the wood-fired spa pool for an added touch of decadence. There's also a pair of loungers if you prefer to spend your time horizontal instead. On the site, you'll find a communal games barn with tables for ping-pong and foosball, as well as outdoor chess. Further afield, there are a wealth of attractions in the local area, including walks along the banks of the River Dart, a jaunt to Blackpool Sands fifteen minutes away in the car or a day of shopping in Totnes, twenty-five minutes' drive away.

Home truths

    There are on-site parking spaces and electric vehicle charging points available

    Although there's only one level in the home, there's a flight of four steps to climb before entry, so it's not wheelchair accessible

    One well-behaved dog is welcome to accompany you during your stay, and treats and a bowl are provided

    There are four other shepherd's huts on the site, so the exact layout and furnishings might differ slightly from what's photographed
