Not only is there ample outside space to enjoy, but there are also two beautiful seating areas. At the front of the hut is a lovely seating area, complete with festoon lighting, adding to the magic of the area. Here, you may enjoy your morning coffee listening to birdsong or your favourite tipple as the sun dips beyond the horizon. To the back of the hideaway, you will find the secluded decking area, complete with two lovely sun loungers and the quirky bathtub.

The talented owners have their own sculpture school, you are able to enjoy the open gallery area during your stay, it is truly amazing!

If you are looking to escape back to nature with friends, these two huts are the perfect solution! A special place to retreat together with your own private areas.
Out and About
If you can pull yourself away from this romantic haven, then you will find Dartmoor right on your doorstep. With miles of outstanding beauty for you to explore by foot or bike. Dartmoor is also known for its rich history and rare wildlife, you may even want to try your hand at wild swimming! For boutiques, tea-rooms and independent shops head to the market towns of Okehampton or Tavistock. Both are a short drive away and offer weekly Pannier Markets. If you fancy a spot of retail therapy, you can visit the bustling city of Exeter.
Lindenwood Shepherd's Hut (5145), is situated perfectly to explore the wonders of both Devon and Cornwall. There are also several National Trust properties you can visit nearby, including Lydford Gorge, Buckland Abbey and Cotehele. Alternatively, you can head to Bude on the North Coast in Cornwall. Bude boasts sandy beaches and independently owned shops and restaurants, creating a welcoming feel to the area. The best spots for surfing are on the north coast at Widemouth Bay, Braunton and Woolacombe or head to the gentler south coast shores of Exmouth, Teignmouth and Shaldon for great beach days.
