A sweet love nest – or the opportunity for some valuable solo time with your furry friend – you decide! This peaceful escape in a glorious rural setting certainly gives you a chance to get away from it all. It’s in a tranquil location, 1.5 miles from the lovely Devonshire town of Ottery St Mary, known for its 14th-century astronomical clock. The accommodation is simple but charming, with one double bed located in the main space, and pretty countryside views all around it.

This bespoke, handcrafted hut, which you’ll access via a couple of wooden steps, opens into a cosy living area through dual patio doors. Inside, a countryside-inspired decor complements perfectly the wooden ceiling for a stylish look. The ever-so-sweet kitchen has a darling apron sink and beautiful wooden units that match with the bed. Pick up fresh produce from the farm shop 150 metres away for sizzling up mouthwatering cooked breakfasts. Then, plate up at the cleverly designed foldable table as your pet looks on enviously. Outside, the enclosed private grassed area is ideal for your dog to play safely. There’s also a charcoal BBQ and a firepit – perfect for al fresco evening meals and marshmallow toasting. You’ll also have a separate benched seating area where you can sip cold beers with your pet at your feet, admiring the beautiful views and wildlife before heading in to curl up in the built-in double bed.

There are plenty of excellent local walks to sniff out with your pet, with many leading from your front door or Ottery St Mary. In warm weather, enjoy some chilly wild swimming at Fluxton Weir (3 miles) or drive to the Jurassic Coast (8 miles) for seaside adventures and excellent walking opportunities along coastal paths. The dog-friendly beach at Exmouth (14 miles), offers sandy fun for your furry companion (some restrictions apply in summer).
