Bowhay Shepherd's Hut

2.7 miles E of Totnes

Sleeps 2

From £80 per night

Shepherd's hut with hot tub in Devon: Getaway from the everyday at this super special retreat, nestled in a peaceful spot with gorgeous countryside views across the Dart Valley. You'll even have some friendly alpacas as neighbours...what more could you want?


Step up to brilliant Bowhay and feel the stresses and strains of modern life instantly wash away - romantic and tranquil with oodles of comfort and practicability, this is the place to disconnect from the everyday and reconnect with one another.

When we said comfort and practicability we meant it - the open plan interior includes a small but perfectly formed and well-equipped kitchen, complete with a two-ring hob, fridge, kettle and toaster (all you could need to rustle up a scummy supper or breakfast). There's a delightful dining area too which, when it comes to the time for resting your head, cleverly converts into the sumptuous double bed with its wonderfully thick mattress. Of course, in true luxury glamping fashion, there is an en suite shower-room with flushing loo, hot shower and heated towel rail.

Bubble your troubles away in the hot tub with a glass of your favourite tipple in-hand - whether it's by day or by night under the twinkling stars - before toasting marshmallows on the fire-pit BBQ and spending a cosy evening in with the wood-burner glowing. Outside furniture is provided too, meaning that dining al fresco is a must or why not grab that book you have been meaning to read and sit in the sunshine.

Out and About

If you can bear to tear yourselves away, there is so much to see and do nearby. Close to home, the pretty local village of Stoke Gabriel is just a short stroll away - if you fancy a meal out, give The River Shack a try (perched on the edge of a mill pond, it's a great spot to grab a bite to eat). It's also the perfect place for a countryside wander or to try your hand at crabbing or kayaking on the River Dart. Visiting the charming church yard is a must - here you will find the oldest Yew Tree in Britain, said to date back 1000 years. Local folklore says that you will be granted a wish if you walk backwards around the tree seven times - worth a try!

You really don't have to get back in the car if you don't want to - you can walk for miles from Bowhay's location - head along the bridle path in the direction of Totnes and witness the beauty of the south Devon countryside. However, if you do jump in the car, numerous south Devon hotspots are within easy reach - from dramatic Dartmoor and historic Totnes to the beaches of Brixham, Slapton Sands (well-known for its role in the Allied preparations for the D-Day landings), Bigbury and Bantham.
