This unique and stylish lodge/shepherd’s hut with hot tub is a fun and exciting property which nestles in an enclosed and private part of the owners’ 300-acre farmland in a beautiful part of Devon.

This gorgeously romantic shepherd’s hut and accompanying lodge sit in a tranquil spot on a 300-acre farm, ideal for long leisurely walks with your significant other as well as your canine companion. Peaceful and idyllic, it is perfect for a romantic retreat with your four-pawed pal in tow amidst the rolling green countryside of Devon.

The original shepherd’s hut is warm and inviting and comes complete with a double bed and a wood burner for cosy nights in, as well as space on the floor for your four-legged friend to stretch out beside you. In the morning, open the door to be greeted by the lovely countryside vista and let Fido bound out onto the grass to stretch his legs. Adjacent to the hut is the delightful lodge where you can enjoy breakfast in the dining kitchen or relax in the lounge in front of the TV. Next to the lodge is the luxurious extra of a fabulous sunken hot tub where you can indulge in a long soak with a glass of something chilled after a day out exploring, whilst your pup relaxes on the decking beside you. There’s also a paddock, perfect for playing ball.

Nearby Tiverton (4 miles) offers some delightful canalside walks for you and your furry friend to enjoy before settling down to a quiet lunch in one of the town’s dog-friendly pubs and restaurants. Let your dog enjoy a good run in the parkland at the beautiful National Trust Knightshayes Gardens just outside Tiverton, where you’ll also find trails and woodlands to sniff out some adventure. Otherwise, take a scenic drive to the stunning Blackdown Hills (20 miles) for miles of glorious waggy-tailed walks.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A lovely little gem of a place! So peaceful and nicely tucked away but still plenty of things nearby if you want to go and explore. Having the kitchen and two bathrooms (great bonus) away from the bedroom works really well, and the hot tub is divine - even in the rain! We will certainly be back!

Cosy, secluded accommodation with everything you need for a relaxing, self catered retreat. Comfy shepherds hut, well equipped kitchen and seating area and gorgeous sunken hot tub. Dog friendly. Lots of farm animals and friendly pets dropping by to say hi, but otherwise you have the place to yourself. Short drive to Tiverton for shops, canal and waRead morelks. Highly recommend visiting Canonteign Falls and National Trust place for free walks. We would definitely stay again! Hide

We had a lovely time at Shepherds Hut, even with torrential rain for the whole week. We enjoyed walks out to Cadbury Castle (no chocolate and no castle!) and Bickleigh Mill. The accommodation was great and gave us the relaxing break we craved.
