Small but perfectly formed with cosy sleeping nooks and vintage charm, shepherd’s huts hold a romantic appeal. Particularly when you want to escape the stresses of modern life and immerse yourself in the great outdoors. Our shepherd’s huts in Devon bring you closer to the soft rolling hills, babbling streams, wild moors and glorious beaches of this west country wonderland. With the windows flung open you’re directly connected to nature with only the sounds of birdsong – and possibly your flock of sheep (no herding required) to break the silence.
We visit every one of our shepherd’s huts to check they’ve got the magic ingredients of comfort, charm and connection to nature. We usually spend some time gazing at the views with our feet up too. Our owners are passionate about their places, designing and furnishing them with love and creativity – and sometimes leaving out delicious treats for your arrival. If you need help choosing the perfect hut, our guest experience team (made up of lovely, real-life humans) are bursting with useful information.
Choose a back to nature glamping break in the great outdoors with the indulgence of a warm outdoor tub to sink into at the end (beginning and middle) of every day.
There are things you’d pay for if you could, but nature offers them up free of charge, as long as you’re there to look for them. To make sure you are, we’ve rounded up part two of our best budget glamping spaces, so you can go in search of some of the best things.
Who we are We’re a small, independent travel company specialising in unique places to stay in nature. We love to get outdoors and find extra special glamping spaces with cool, quirky features that make your stay memorable. We’re employee owned, B-Corp certified and have a charitable trust dedicated to supporting environmental causes.
Our shepherd's hut holidays in Devon Get out into the idyllic Devon countryside without all the camping gear on a shepherd’s hut holiday. Breathe in the fresh air, listen to the rustle of the leaves in the breeze and enjoy the peace of your own little oasis. No two of our Devon shepherd’s huts are the same – we’ve got a Scandi style hut with an outdoor hot tub, a hilltop eco-hut where you can book a session in the private sauna as well as a spacious, retro hut set around an old pagan tree circle.
What to do in Devon With two separate coastlines, Devon’s diverse landscape is what makes it so special – that and the cream teas. In between the sandy beaches of the South and the dramatic cliffs and Atlantic surf of the North, you’ll find the wilds of Dartmoor and Exmoor and the thriving hubs of Totnes and Exeter. If you’re enjoying stepping back in time in your shepherd’s hut, continue the theme with a visit to the historic (and car-free) village of Clovelly in North Devon, with magnificent views over Bideford Bay.
