Romantic Shepherd's Hut with private hot tub

The stunning new Merino Shepherd's Hut is the height of luxury, with an en suite shower and toilet, high-end Bosch appliances, a cosy log burner, Smart TV and a glass roof panel for stargazing above the comfy double bed.

Sleeping two guests in contemporary glamping accommodation in delightful Devon countryside, this is the best place to escape for a romantic getaway with the one you love.

The bubbling private hot tub in the garden is the best place to relax with a glass of fizz, admiring the glorious views across the valley of the little Dart river. A selection of freshly baked pastries are included for the first morning, and the Hut has access to the onsite facilities at South Coombe, including the indoor heated pool, sauna, games room and animal petting. The charming village of Witheridge is nearby, and there's also a pub within walking distance.
