Shepherd's Hut in Devon: Our little haven in the heart of Devon. Why not slip away for a few days and sink into the heavenly ambience that this dreamy hut radiates? With so much to discover on your doorstep, you'll be wishing to return from the moment you arrive.
The Holcombe Hut is nestled within the heart of Devon. Close to some incredible places to visit, such as the beautiful city of Exeter and the picturesque landscape of Dartmoor. With gorgeous interiors, luxurious features and the most peaceful setting, this lovely little hut promises the most relaxing retreat to nature.
As soon as you arrive and wander along the cobbled pathway to your pocket of paradise, you will instantly feel at ease. Open the stable door and be greeted with a warm and welcoming atmosphere. As you step inside, you'll notice no detail has been spared. From the stargazing roof above the king-sized bed to sweet Belfast sink, it really is a gorgeous little haven. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with everything you'll need during your escape to nature. There's a double electric hob, fridge, kettle, toaster and Everhot oven. This miniature sized Aga lookalike is perfect for jacket potatoes, slow cooking and warming food, such as delicious fresh pastries. To the right of the hut is the ensuite shower-room with a heated towel rail. The perfect spot for refreshing after a day of exploring. The hut has plenty of space for the two of you to sit back and relax with your morning coffee and favourite book at the breakfast bar. And, for lovers of romance you will simply fall in love with the stunning stargazing roof right above where you rest your head.
As you step outside, the magic simply doesn't fade. For outdoor enthusiasts, you will love cooking in nature here. You have your very own barbecue, fire pit and Ooni pizza oven! Why not pick up some fresh local produce from Darts Farm and whip up a seasonal feast. The owners also grow their own fruit and vegetables. Just ask on arrival if you would like to sample what's in season and they will happily supply this for you, along with fresh eggs from their chickens! During your stay, why not transport yourself to Italy and try your hand at pizza making? All before snuggling in around the fire pit and toasting marshmallows under the moonlight. The perfect date night awaits…
Out and About
The Holcombe Hut is positioned in a fantastic location for exploring the very best that Devon has to offer. For wildlife enthusiasts you may be lucky enough to spot deer, owls, foxes, woodpeckers, nuthatches and buzzards right outside the hut itself! If you love the outdoors, then you'll enjoy exploring the rugged landscape of Dartmoor on your doorstep. Lydford Gorge, Edworthy Mire and Fernworthy Reservoir are all dreamy places in the National Park to take a picnic and reconnect with nature. If you are more of a beach goer, then take a trip to Dawlish Warren, Teignmouth or Exmouth and embrace a wild swim before returning to your little sanctuary and warming up by the fire pit. Haldon Forest isn't far from the hut and if you wish to explore by local area by two wheels, you'll enjoy the many cycling trails here!
For a spot of retail therapy, head into the quaint city of Exeter. With its cobbled streets, ancient Cathedral and independent eateries it makes for a wonderful day out! Exeter becomes even more magical during the festive season, with its annual Christmas markets that take place on Cathedral Green. Our favourite spots for shopping in the city include Magdalen and Gandy Street, where you'll find a whole array of independently owned stores. After a day of exploring Exeter, pop to Darts Farm and pick up some delicious local produce to prep back at your hidden haven.
