Shepherd's hut with hot tub in Devon: Take a walk on the wild side in this pretty shepherd's hut that's set in the most glorious countryside location. Admire the views, walk in the woodland - and even count the stars from its very own hot tub.
When I fall in love, it will be forever…and falling in love with Rosie's Hut is inevitable - you'll be hooked from the moment you arrive. This spectacular shepherd's hut is set among acres of stunning grounds, surrounded by farmland and up close and personal to a variety of trees, animals, wildlife and flowers. Stroll along your very own nature trail through the woods and ponds, and spot the poppies, cornflowers or daffodils, or simply sit on the patio, enjoy the spectacular views, read a good book and listen to the birdsong. After dark, the hut's fairy lights will provide a magical atmosphere while you count the stars in the night sky above. Get ready to pour yourself and your partner some bubbles and unwind in the wood-fired hot tub - perfect for a relaxing evening after a busy day out.
Tucked up inside Rosie's Hut you'll adore the romantic atmosphere: quirky yet comfortable, with traditional planked walls, calming green paintwork and a natural wooden floor. At one end of the hut is a king-sized bed with gorgeous floral bed linen, reading lights and - ta da! - a window with a view of fields and sky as far as the eye can see. In the centre there's the cutest kitchen with a full-sized ceramic butler's sink, double hob, combination oven and plenty of worktop and storage space, with a folding dining table and welcoming wicker chairs. And at the other end is, joys of joys, a real en suite shower-room, complete with flushing loo and hot-and-cold water whenever you wish. There's even a heated towel rail! With books, ornaments and framed pictures, this really is a home-from-home, and let's not forget the nicest feature of all - a warming wood-burner, just the thing for creating a cosy atmosphere even on a bracing winter's day.
