Shepherds hut in Devon with a hot tub: Crafted perfectly for two, this sweet hut is settled on an alpaca farm… Slip into the dreamy hot tub and admire gentle countryside hills as the resident alpacas graze quietly in the field beyond.
Perched atop a meadow on an alpaca farm, this lovely little hideaway boasts idyllic views of rural green pastures and gentle countryside hills. As the sun dips, creating golden, pink hues across the farm, sink into the dreamy hot tub for a romantic evening with that special someone. Admire uninterrupted views as the alpacas quietly graze, drifting into a state of pure relaxation. As night falls, head inside the hut, light the wood-burner and get cosy in the most romantic space, crafted perfectly for two. Your beloved pooch is also welcome to join you at Alpaca Hideaway, where your days will be filled with countryside rambles and cosy pub lunches.
This small and soulful escape provides a gorgeous living space for your glamping getaway. The sumptuous double bed is snuggled to the right of the hideaway, where you are sure to have an utterly blissful night’s sleep. You will be sleeping under a duvet and resting your head on pillows made by the owners from the alpaca fleece, which is super soft, warm and surprisingly light! To the left, you will find the stylish kitchen area, complete with electric hob, microwave and fridge with a freezer compartment. Pop on the radio and listen to soft melodies play in the background as you enjoy your morning brew on the sun soaked deck. The shower room is situated to the far left of the hut, beautifully presented and perfect for freshening up after a day of adventures. As night falls, light the wood-burner, get cosy under a blanket and embrace the heavenly hygge ambience Alpaca Hideaway has to offer.
The large decking area boasts uninterrupted views from every angle. It is simply idyllic for slow mornings listening to birdsong, indulging in delicious fresh pastries accompanied by a pot of golden coffee. On a summer's day, this is the perfect little sun trap, get lost in a new book or treat yourself to a refreshing G&T. Nestled in the corner of your enclosed decking, sits the gorgeous hot tub, positioned perfectly to marvel at the tranquil countryside. Watch the fluffy alpacas quietly graze across the field, or say hello to them yourself! (Please pop in to see the owners if you’d like to get close and meet the alpacas). The lovely owners have been breeding these delightful animals for 25 years. They are inquisitive, but completely harmless and truly add something extra special to your countryside retreat in wonderful Devon.
If you can pull yourself away from this heavenly abode, you will find yourself right in the heart of the Devonshire countryside, with plenty to see and do nearby. The market town of Tiverton is a short distance away, explore its 12th century castle or head to the gothic mansion of Knightshayes Court, with its stunning gardens. Wander the pretty village of Bampton, known for its flower-lined streets and historic buildings or Dulverton, which is tucked away on the edge of Exmoor National Park. Grab your walking boots and connect with nature; wandering wild walks, cycle trails and meeting the famous ponies! Exmoor is home to some of England's most untouched woodlands, river-valleys, rambling lanes, high clifftops, unbeatable views and pretty villages. On your way back, be sure to stop off at the picturesque town of South Molton for independent shops and a thriving market that takes place twice a week. Don’t forget to pick up some delicious local produce to later be enjoyed back at your hideaway.
Alternatively, head to the bustling Cathedral city of Exeter for some lunch by the quayside or roam the boutique shops and lovely cafes. You can even hire a canoe and paddle along to the two renowned canal-side pubs, The Double Locks and The Turf Hotel! If the seaside is calling, visit one of the traditional seaside towns of Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth or Beer. Or you could spend a day at the beach, Dawlish Warren, Teignmouth Beach and Exmouth Beach are all around an hour away. A little further afield, you will reach the infamous Jurassic Coast, well worth a visit whilst you’re in the area! After a day of exploring your picturesque surroundings, you will love nothing more than returning back to your peaceful haven for a relaxing dip in the steamy hot tub.
Open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Wood-burner. Electric hob, electric oven, microwave, fridge with freezer compartment, toaster, kettle and radio. Double bed (4'6").

The owners have been breeding alpacas for 25 years, they are the aristocrats of farmed animals and live outside all year round. The herd normally numbers around 100 but that rises in the summer with the birth of some forty cria. The youngsters, like lambs, race around the field at dinner time, super cute! Alpacas move around their space together, they don’t like being alone. They are inquisitive but harmless and completely quiet in the field. Please pop in to see the owners if you’d like to get close and meet the alpacas. The owners breed them for their fleece and are more than happy to show you all the fabulous knitting and weaving yarns they produce.
Small, well-behaved dogs are welcome at Alpaca Hideaway, although they will need to be kept on a lead at all times when outside the property as this is a working livestock farm.
