Dreaming of retreating to somewhere new, that's a little out of the ordinary? Rancher's ticks all the boxes for a peaceful escape in nature and has an extra special flare that's hard to find elsewhere! Designed inline with a wild western theme, the cabin has a warm cosy aura. The covered veranda is perfect for romantic evenings under starlight and the wood-fired hot tub adds a little extra je ne sais quoi. It's time to step off the beaten track and to experience a completely unique retreat in nature. Welcome to Rancher's Hut…

Step Inside

As you step into your heavenly home from home you can't help but feel a millions miles away from reality. The interiors are truly gorgeous with exposed wooden beams, a rustic corrugated ceiling, sumptuous soft furnishings and plenty of wild west features! The kitchen is well equipped with a double gas hob, oven, grill and fridge. Once the sun has set, why not light the warming wood-burner and gather around the bar with a pack of cards and a glass of something delicious to soothe the soul. To the right of the cabin sits the main bedroom, with a luxury king-sized bed, adorned in lovely linens and a snug sheepskin. The chic theme flows effortlessly into the space with the cow hide stool perfectly positioned under the sweet dressing table. Younger guests will love their bunk beds that sit in their own little room at the opposite end of the cabin, next to the stylish shower room. We adore the copper brass pipes and rainfall shower, idyllic for refreshing after a day of adventures.


As you venture outside the magic continues. The large covered deck has plenty of seating for you to relax and read your book and is just the spot for a sundowner. As you step to the right of the cabin you’ll not only find your steamy hot tub, but also two sun loungers and a lovely table and chairs for outdoor dining. The whole area is enclosed by a reclaimed steel wall, which promises complete privacy. To the left of the cabin is the cosy fire pit and barbecue area. Cook up a wood-fired feast for the ones you love most and as dusk settles be sure to toast marshmallows over the flickering flames. You could even have a pizza night as there’s a DeliVita wood-fired pizza oven onsite for guests to use (please note this is shared with the other two hideaways onsite).


Rancher's Hut is the optimum of an eco-friendly hideaway as the whole site is off-grid, with electricity powered by solar energy! There's plenty of heating provided by the wood-burner and solar powered underfloor heating, so no matter the weather you are sure to keep cosy.

The owners of this hideaway have recently planted new trees on site.


You could quite simply spend all your days at Rancher's Hut, but if you feel like heading further afield there's plenty to do nearby. Nestled just a few miles inland from the stunning World Heritage Jurassic Coast, the cabin is close to some stunning beaches including Beer, Budleigh Salterton and Teignmouth. If you fancy eating out, why not head to Shaldon, with its piercingly blue waters it's a lovely spot for a bite to eat. For history enthusiasts, the Iron Age fort of Woodbury Castle isn't far and makes for a great day out. If you love to shop, then the bustling city of Exeter is perfect for exploring with its cobbled streets, eclectic array of independents and historic Cathedral. Alternatively, if you are a keen walker but moorland is more your scene than the coast, Dartmoor isn't far! Or, if you just fancy leaving the car parked up during your stay, you can spend your time wandering through Knightstone's fields, which include a beautiful meadow with a lovely lake (please take care with children), an enclosed play area, picnic table and swing chair. You could even pick up the ancient riverside travellers' path to historic Ottery St Mary, birthplace of the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge, or head in the opposite direction to the village of Tipton St John, where you can refresh at the Golden Lion.
