Escape to the country with a stay at this hand-crafted shepherd's hut close to the Devon/Cornwall border. Located in an adults-only, lakeside setting it’s a romantic retreat for a fun-loving couple and their pair of four-pawed pals, with garden games, a summerhouse and sauna on the doorstep plus an off-lead play area for the dogs.

One of three shepherd’s huts set within the owner’s 10-acre grounds, this high-end holiday hideaway has been custom-designed to deliver an idyllic grown-up getaway. Head up the steps and you’re straight into a surprisingly spacious living area, with French doors offering stunning countryside views while, to one side, a wood burner casts a warming glow as you stretch out on the sofa with the dogs at your feet. A small but perfectly formed kitchen area has all the essentials for fuss-free self-catering and, beyond, the generously proportioned shower room comes with complimentary bath robes. At the opposite end of this beautifully rustic abode, the king-size bed can be accessed on both sides and has useful built-in storage. The whole space has been beautifully styled, while the open-plan layout means your pets can stay close at all times. For a sniff of fresh country air, simply open the French doors; to the front of the hut is a lawn with garden furniture, charcoal BBQ and fire pit plus panoramic views over the lake to the fields beyond. Stroll to the shared lakeside summerhouse where you’ll find seating, a TV, bar area with billiards table, large decked area with garden furniture and the option of a game of French Boules, Croquet or a 9-hole Pitch and Putt course. Alternatively, chill out with a trip to the shared barrel-shaped cedar sauna room – a small charge is payable direct to the owner. When the dogs want to let off steam, there’s a dedicated area where they can be exercised off-lead; if you’d like to extend a holiday invitation to more loved ones, additional properties can be booked, each accommodating a further two people and two pets.

Holiday here and you’re spoilt for choice when it comes to doggie days out – less than 3 miles away, Roadford Lake is within the scenic Wolf Valley, with the dramatic tors of Dartmoor as its backdrop. Dogs are welcome on its network of paths, and can enjoy zoomies in their own enclosed exercise area. Alternatively, sniff out the wild beauty of Dartmoor National Park – Lydford, on its western edge, is just 12 miles away – or drive 9 miles to Launceston where Fido can join you in exploring the grounds of the town’s historic castle. For a change of terrain, head towards the coast – the sandy beaches at Bude and Widemouth Bay are less than 20 miles to the west.

Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. Great location, accommodation and relaxation. Everything was as described, and if possible even better than expected. Host Malcolm had the perfect balance of information and accessibility without ever being intrusive. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable break.

A super peaceful hideaway! Despite there being 3 huts in total they are well spaced out with thoughtful planting to offer privacy. Lovely west facing view so perfect for sunsets, with clear skies for star gazing. Lovely cosy accommodation that was spotless - with lovely hosts too. Highly recommended!

Fantastic little hut with everything we needed. Very comfortable bed, well equipped kitchen and very clean! There are also plenty of 'garden games' which we had a lot of fun playing - pitch and putt, ring toss, skattles and loads more. The nearby shop has all the basics for anyone not wanting to travel too far. Our little dog enjoyed walking aroundRead more the fields as well as watching the ducks. Lovely place and we highly recommend it! Hide

The Shepherd's Hut was lovely and well equipped with everything you needed. It was set in a very peaceful area of the countryside. There was a quirky summer house, called the Duck Inn where you could borrow books, play games and just chill out with drinks from the fridge available to buy. Information was on hand from the owners, who were very helpfRead moreul and friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience. Hide
