Shepard's hut is located in what seems like the middle of nowhere, surrounded by rolling hills. Although the town of Tiverton is just a 10 minute drive away. The view from the hot tub is immense and how the property is made up of old travellers caravans is really quirky. Would definitely recommend for a stress free retreat.

Lovely little place with all you need. Has WiFi but not the greatest of speeds. Very isolated along a not too good road but very handily located for visiting both North and South Devon as well as West Dorset. Lovely hot tub overlooking lovely countryside and dog friendly.

Perfect relaxing calm environment. We had an amazing mini moon. The location is great and central to most sight seeing locations. Take a few bits for the fridge as the nearest supermarket it about 15min away by car and you won't want to go out when you get there... you'll want to jump in the hot tub and take in the views!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, it was in such a beautiful, isolated and serene part of Devon. Only the cows and sheep making any noise. The hot tub is exactly what we needed and spent a lot of time in there. The bedroom is very cosy and the kitchen area was equipped with everything we needed. We Will definitely come back again.
