  • Amazing location, fantastic kitchen and even better hot tub

  • Katy’s place was perfect for a girly weekend away. We spent the majority of the time in the hot tub which was perfect. The pub down the road, Church House Inn was also great - fantastic food, friendly owner & locals who entertained us all evening!

    Georgie2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space, great kitchen and beautiful bedroom and bathroom upstairs. Would definitely return! Free eggs from the chickens on the farm. Perfect for poaching

    Peter2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic little getaway with an amazing hot tub!

    Ruth2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • I booked Katy’s place as a surprise for my sister and her boyfriend and it definitely lived up to expectations! The cottage was extremely clean and a perfect set up for their little weekend away. They certainly made use of the hot tub and said Katy was super friendly and they loved meeting the dog too! They had a lovely walk in South Milton and thoroughly enjoyed their stay. Would definitely recommend and return. Thank you!

    Amber-Rose2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic stay and couldn't have asked for more! The house had everything we needed for eating, drinking and cooking and stayed really warm the whole time. The hot tub was perfect and made the stay extra special. Information of local things to do and shops close by was really helpful too - thank you for such a great experience!

    Rachel2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner and we couldn’t fault a thing. We were greeted on arrival and given tips on the best places to visit in the area, they were very friendly and welcoming. Easy to contact also, they even politely gave us some foil that we’d forgot to buy from the shop! (It’s only a 10/15 minute drive to Tesco.) The fire and the heated floor boards made everything so warm and cosy, just wish we’d booked even longer. Thanks again for such great hospitality!

    Helen2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • A peaceful and restful retreat. The local eggs available from the farm made for a tasty breakfast. Katy had left out several informative local brochures for us to taylor our stay at The Dairy, which were extremely helpful. Ending the day relaxing in the hot tub ! We would definitely stay again with Katy.

    Kingsbridge , Devon, United Kingdom

    Close to Bantham Beach, Bigbury-on-Sea, Salcombe and Kingsbridge, this fully-equipped high quality Shepherd Hut is set in a tranquil location with stunning views across to Dartmoor. Now with private hot tub adjacent to The Hut, offering a perfect place to enjoy sunsets or starry skies. The Hut is ideally situated in South Devon and offers a peaceful rural retreat with close proximity to many Devon beaches and towns.
    Uniquely situated to visit all the South Hams beaches, towns and villages, private and secluded but not remote. A 10 minute walk from The Hut up the lane will take you to the main road where you can catch a direct bus to Dartmouth along the stunning coast line passing through Slapton, Strete, Stoke Fleming and Blackpool Sands. At the top of this lane also is the Church House inn – a 13th century former monks’ house with a great selection of food and wines. Other dining options nearby include The Oyster Shack, The Sloop at Bantham, Britannia Shack at Beesands, The Crabshell in Kingsbridge as well as other excellent eating places in Salcombe and Dartmouth. The Hut has a fully made-up double bed with a pocket spring mattress and duck down quilt and pillows for a comfy and cosy night. The bed just folds up against the wall to reveal a generous living space with table and benches. The toilet/shower room is plumbed in with a “proper” toilet and shower. The well-equipped kitchen unit incorporates a 2 ring hob, combination oven, microwave and grill, a small fridge and sink, [as well as crockery, cutlery, glasses, toaster, kettle etc.]. The wood-burner offers additional heat and cosiness if required in cooler months. Set in the corner of a large 5 acre plot The Hut is totally private and away from the owners’ accommodation. Ample parking [a short walk along a path] is provided as is a useful storage shed next to The Hut to maximise your space inside. The Hut now has it's own hot tub, which is perfectly situated to enjoy a tipple whilst enjoying spectacular views across open countryside to Dartmoor. As well as the hot tub, outside The Hut is plenty of space to unwind with lounger chairs, picnic table and chimenea. There is ample room to pitch a tent for additional guests by [small extra cost by arrangement] but please note there are no other toilet or shower facilities available.
    This is a beautiful place to live, a gem we found a few years ago and have gradually been transforming into our forever home. We love the combination of privacy with rural living and proximity to the wonderful South Hams places, events and culture. Waking up to gorgeous views, listening to the birds and countryside noises is bliss.
  • What a fantastic place to stay this was. Lovely little remote location with all the amenities required to enjoy your stay. Hosts are fantastic. Couldn't recommend enough and even thinking about booking again for next year.

    Ricky2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really lovely weekend away here, Alasdair was there to greet us on arrival and show us around the shepherd’s hut. We had a lovely meal at the Church House Inn which was 15 minutes’ walk away with a great atmosphere. The hot tub was the real highlight and really made our trip! We also visited Thurleston Sands which was a great beach nearby and Kingsbridge which was a lovely little town. The Shepherd’s Hut was fantastic and we would definitely stay here again.

    Faye2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic Shepard’s hut with everything you need! Small, Warm and cosy. A stunning peaceful location, outstanding area just 15 minutes to the coast. Siobahn & Alistair were excellent hosts, seeing them at the local pub and even gave us a lift to the bus stop! Loved the Hot Tub.

    Pete2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Siobahn’s place is in a great location with real privacy. The hut itself is clean and well equipped with everything you could need. The hot tub is to a good standard and has a nice outlook over the neighbouring fields and rolling hills.

    Rebecca2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place for a relaxing couple of days. Not a bad word to say... we'll be back 😊

    Hannah2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most wonderful stay here and I would recommend it to anyone (in fact I will be!). Alistair and Siobahn are such lovely hosts, they really go above and beyond and are so easily contacted when/if needed. The place itself is so cute and has everything you need plus a hot tub!! We came for a long weekend for my boyfriends birthday and it’s a perfect base to explore the local area - it’s only a £20 taxi home from Salcombe if you fancy a few bevs. The pub that’s a ten minute walk is lovely too with great food and friendly staff. Thank you so so much, we loved it ❤️

    Megan2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Siobahn’s. The hut was warm, cosy and spacious with everything we needed. The hot tub was a highlight and the views of the fields were amazing. For a breath of fresh air and some down time it was the perfect place for us!

    Sarah2020-02-20T00:00:00Z

    The bright and sunny Studio is situated in a quiet and picturesque valley a mile from the award winning Bantham beach. With a yoga platform in the garden and surrounded countryside, its the perfect retreat for couples, yogi or a small family looking for a relaxed getaway near the sea. Max 4 people!
    The Studio is a unique little haven tucked in a Devonshire valley, a mile from the sea. Owned by an artist, it has a quirky shabby chique interior with an open plan living space, breakfast bar and balcony overlooking the valley. Its beautiful setting and location make it a perfect place to retreat to. The garden has a yoga platform for those who want to salute the Devon sun. Its located in a valley with a handful of other holiday cottages nearby and in sight, though its elevated place on the hill means its quiet and feels private. There are gorgeous country walks leaving from the property and a 20 minute walk to the famous, award winning Bantham Beach. Guests book repeatedly each year for its charm and location. The bedroom has its own balcony doors opening onto the valley and a skylight overhead for stargazing from bed.

The Studio is light and airy during the summer with lots of wild birds. Please note that cooking facilities are not extensive but certainly sufficient. Have a look in the pictures so you can see what is available and know what to expect. There is a lovely stray black and white cat, Miss Frieda Meoiw, who comes and goes over the year, who makes her home the studio for some of the time. She may or may not be there when you visit. She is to stay outdoors, although she loves a cuddle and feed if you like cats! During the winter, it is snug, cosy and warm! There are village shops and excellent pubs in Thurlestone (1.5m), Bantham (0.9m) and Churchstow (2m) and Kingsbridge (4m) offers a supermarket, banks, numerous shops, cafes, galleries, yoga studio and a regular farmers markets.

    Just a short way from the award winning Bantham Beach, this is an area with incredible country walks in every direction leaving the house. The solitude and quiet of the valley is at the heart of its charm and with little light pollution, its a great place for star gazing at night. Truly a beautiful retreat!
  • A cute cabin with alot of character, a peaceful location and great for relaxing and detoxing !

    Costantino2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely little cabin in the countryside. Has everything you need for a cosy stay, although if you want to watch TV shows/movies, bring your laptop and either a hard drive of movies or DVD’s, as there is no TV and internet doesn’t stretch to streaming. Really close to lots of lovely beaches.

    Lindsay2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely tranquil spot in the midst of stunning countryside. Stef was a great host and made everything easy and restful. I'd love to return soon.

    Litza2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend this space, such a lovely little get away for anyone/couple/friends who needs to soak up some beautiful views and lovely countryside. Thank you!

    Paul2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • A beautifully decorated, light, deceptively spacious tranquil stay. Thoughtfully decorated with a few quirky touches, but more than enough modern touches to make it comfortable. A real gem in the Devon valleys. You will not be disappointed.

    Christine2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great trip, would've to come back and explore in the better weather

    Annmarie2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I were looking for a couple of days escape and this was the perfect place. Comfortable, cosy space with everything you need and not far from some great beaches. We plan to stay again!

    Dom&Bex2020-02-02T00:00:00Z

  • The location is fantastic, local beaches nearby recommended by Katy were lovely. Great space, underfloor heating was a welcome addition and the hot tub and balcony area was beautiful to sit and watch the stars. Very clean, would definitely visit again!

    Elizabeth2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • I had a great time at Katy's farm house, it was clean spacious and cosy. The hot tub was fantastic and we really enjoyed seeing the animals. We watched some or the classic DVDs provided and had a much needed chilled few days.

    Antonia2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Had a lovely break at the hayloft, relaxing, quiet environment perfect for escaping the real world! Added bonus was the hot tub!

    Jodie2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • The best part of the trip was waking up to horses outside your bedroom window, plus a couple of ducks and the odd cockerel. Cannot recommend enough!

    Charlie2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • The Hayloft is a lovely space and we had a lovely weekend. Hoping to be back soon

    Tracy2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing weekend stay here! If you need to leave the house you will probably need to drive as the country lanes are very narrow. Hot tub was so relaxing and the hayloft was really homely. Friendly horses next door. Bring milk if you want a cuppa. Would definitely recommend to a friend! Thank you Katy so responding via message to us and making everything so easy!

    Georgia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Pretty scenery, lovely hot tub, and friendly and helpful host - Thank You!!

    Brandon2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great 2 night stay at Katy’s place, location is fab if you want something out of the way in the middle of nowhere. The air bnb itself is next to the main house but very private. The hot tub and terrace outside are not overlooked so it felt like we were completely on our own which was lovely. The pictures don't do it justice as there was a lot more space than we were expecting, and the house was super clean and modern. Just a tip if you're a light sleeper you may be woken by the roosters but in general we couldn't hear a thing it was so quiet around. Overall would be very happy to stay again!

    Ben2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Yet another wonderful stay here. We chose to spend another New Year at The Loft, exploring our fave South Hams. It’s the perfect base for the surrounding area and also for cosying up on a Winter’s Eve. Everything you need is here. What we love about Sam is that although she is absolutely on hand whenever you may need her, you are left to your own devices. She is a first rate communicator and utterly reliable.

    Karen2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • The loft is absolutely fantastic. Two friends and I came for a weekend away to relax before the Christmas Craziness begins. The loft is such a great space and is really clean and tidy. It’s in a fab location for exploring the neighbouring seaside towns and villages. We let our self in and we’re left to our own devices all weekend but Sam and her family were nearby if we needed them. We will be back ☺️

    Hattie2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the Loft! Spacious and light, but still cosy. Close to many beaches, cafes, walks and pubs! We didn’t bump into Sam but he was communicative and helpful. We would definitely stay here again!

    Jake2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • The loft is a wonderfully designed space which offers everything you need and more for a get away. In a great location and as private as you want it to be the Loft is certainly somewhere we would return. Sam is so helpful but also gives you space and is there if you need her.

    Andrew2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Extremely well presented stylish, comfortable space set amongst wonderful views. Super quiet too.

    Sarah2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, very clean, nice touches around the place. Perfect base for hiking along the coast!

    Karl2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay. The location is perfect for exploring some truly beautiful parts of the coast. Would highly recommend.

  • Great location and social space. Communication was prompt.

    Tamsin2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • The place is only a few metres from the beach, we visited off season so all the sites/bar etc were shut but that wasn’t a problem for us. Would be a great place to stay with children if you want a nice little beach stay

    Donna2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location and spotless

    Alexander2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Superb house space with everything you could need for a perfect stay. The location is private and set back from the crowds but the beach & Burgh Island are just a short walk away. Sandra has a beautiful Summer home, which is spotless and has a fully kitted kitchen. The lounge area and kitchen make it a fabulous space for families or like us, a gathering of old friends to bring a little sunshine to a miserable January. Great and easy communication, Sandra was a wonderful hostess.

    Allie2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great for a family. Well equipped , bright and spacious. Perfect location for lovely walks and the beach.

    Sharon2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra’s house is perfect for a family holiday. The open plan kitchen and lounge is a wonderful place to relax when back from exploring Devon and the layout down stairs with the bedrooms is perfect for privacy. We had a wonderful holiday

    Beth2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely stay in this modern, well equipped home. Sandra was very helpful. Brilliant location for cliff walks towards Bigbury bay and Burgh island where we hired surf/paddle boards and kayaks to get around Burgh island in lovely October sunshine! Hired boat at Salcombe harbour and enjoyed lovely dinner at Journeys End pub.

    Amy2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location for young families. The beach is spotless and great for swimming and the house is very practical for children. The South coast path is two minutes from the house and the views over Burgh Island and Aymer Cove are gorgeous. Our favourite food places were Journey's End and the Oyster Shack, both close by. There is obviously a huge caravan park in Challaborough which may bother some but it's a nice park with good amenities and they take excellent care of the beach. The combination of the stunning house and great location for children made it a fantastic fortnight.

    The Piggery is a delightful, sun filled, light and airy, two bedroom, two bathroom detached home on Ham Farm. Stylish, cosy and beautifully designed and hand made by artists, The Piggery offers a unique and unforgettable stay near the coast in Devon. The traditional Orchard to the South, planted by us fifteen years ago, boasts vintage cider apples, delicious cookers and eaters plus mulberry, plums, perry pears, medlar and quince. We produce our own cider and apple juice too..
    This contemporary and highly original home at Ham Farm in rural South Devon offers all the modern conveniences, including a dishwasher and washer. Every item has been carefully chosen or made to compliment the architecture and to ensure a comfortable stay. Much of it designed and made by the owners or their friends. Whether you decide to sit at home and enjoy the serenity of the countryside, the views over the orchard, private garden and patio and the cosy warmth of the wood burning stove, or travel farther afield to enjoy the exquisite landscape of the South Hams from a very central location, The Piggery offers everything you need to make your stay easy, relaxing and fun. Well situated a short walk away from Loddiswell, and right in the centre of the South Hams, The Piggery offers easy access to the stunning coastline with its famous South West Coast Path, beautiful and secluded beaches, magnificent Dartmoor, and all the amenities the South Hams has to offer: Kingsbridge (10 mins.), Dartmouth (25 mins.), Salcombe (25 mins.) and Totnes (25 mins.) are all worth visiting, each offering something special. There are many charming villages close by, and the internationally recognised Dartington Estate is within 30 minutes. Loddiswell has in the past been a little overlooked but offers such a lot on many levels, we love it here! For those who like to walk, there are essentials available in the village via a short footpath and there are numerous trails, green lanes and Avon River walks that begin right at your doorstep and may be interrupted with a delicious cream tea or lunch at Avon Mill Garden Centre. Other benefits include plenty of parking for up to 3 cars, drive up access, expert local knowledge….. The bedrooms are small but perfectly formed.. the larger has a very comfortable King size bed complete with boutique Egyptian bed linen. The smaller, with its en-suite shower and loo is a narrow (4') but extra long double and can sleep two cuddly people or children who don't mind sharing. We also have a single mattress with bedding provided for a small extra charge - please ask when booking. Please let us know if you have kids as there are a couple of provisos regarding care of its furnishings ..
    The South Hams is a gem in the UK.. beautiful with a mass of things to do both inside and out... glorious and wild coastline, with its swimming, sailing, surfing, hiking, golf or simply taking in the stunning landscape..and Dartmoor is just 20 minutes away. Inland there's much to do and see - we will provide leaflets, brochures etc. - just ask or visit Tourist Information in Kingsbridge. Totnes, Dartmouth, Salcombe and Kingsbridge are all special in their own way and once you've mastered the winding and secret Devon lanes there's beauty around every corner. Once you've been captivated you'll wish to return.. It's a good idea to search through our Guidebook here in case you wish to eat out in one of the busier places.. as we have many visitors throughout the year they will fill up all year round so it's worth booking in ad.
  • A fantastic and relaxing place, with great facilities. We enjoyed wonderful hospitality from Peet and Carl and their family. The home pressed apple juice is to die for and the location is a great spot for getting to south coast and the Dartmouth and Salcombe areas. Would definitely recommend it for a few days to unwind and explore the South Devon area.

  • The Piggery is a great cottage to unwind in South Devon. The cottage is in a great location to explore the countryside and nearby coastline. The cottage itself is a pleasure to stay in - we spent our evenings relaxings by the log burner. Peet and Carl are ideal hosts and respond quickly to questions.

    Patrick2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • A stylish yet cosy retreat in the beautiful Devon countryside. Peet and Carl's place is one of a kind, full of their own artistic touches which makes this place feel very special indeed. We slept so well here and really looked forward coming back to The Piggery each day to put the log burner on and relax in the comfortable surroundings. Very well equipped. Didn't miss the TV at all! We'll be back!

  • We couldn’t have asked for a more cosy comfortable stay. Booked for a birthday celebration for my mum who turned 69 so that we could go off to burgh island the following day, 52 Brownston was a fanatic location. The house it’s self was incredibly comfortable and stylish. Couldn’t have wished for a better stay.

  • I returned to Tilly’s, another working trip ,she makes her guests really welcome and so comfortable in her lovely light and restful home!

  • Tilly made us very welcome at her spotless and stylish home... despite our having to cancel on two previous occasions due to the various storms ...! We hope to return to continue our recce of this lovely area very soon and hopefully stay with her again ...

    Mary2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Tilly is a wonderful host. She made us feel incredibly welcome and comfortable. Her home is beautiful and our space was immaculate. Tilly was helpful every step of the way from notifications to adapting to our needs. Her home is close to the town center with easy parking. We look forward to going back.

    Todd2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Tilly gave me a very warm welcome to her beautiful home. The rooms were sparkling clean and I had everything I needed. The house itself was peaceful and quiet and the road also, but it was also easy walking distance into the lovely small town of Modbury. The bedroom was very comfortable and the private bathroom next door was perfect. I didn’t feel I was intruding on Tilly’s privacy as I had the middle floor to myself. We shared the kitchen but I didn’t use it for more than a cup of tea as I was eating with my sister locally for all meals, but had I needed to it was very clean and Tilly had said I could use it if I wanted to. There was a TV in the lounge which I could also use if I had wanted to. WiFi was also available. All in all, Tilly’s place was perfect for my circumstances and I would happily stay again if I needed to.

    Liz2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • Tilly's house is on a new estate in the attractive little Georgian town of Modbury. The Development where the house is located is very pretty with some great views out towards Dartmoor. This is a relatively new housing complex and the facilities within Tilly's lovely town house are exceptional. She couldn't have done more to make me feel relaxed and at ease. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt at home almost as soon as I'd arrived. The house was spotlessly clean and I cannot think how anything could be improved upon. Staying with Tilly has been a wonderful experience and I cannot recommend her home and hospitality highly enough.

    Steph2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great all round place to stay, very clean and comfortable.

    Jane2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Tilly is a fantastic, welcoming host and her home is very beautiful and comfortable. Modbury is a beautiful and picturesque village - close to the coast and beaches and also to the stunning Devon countryside. I can’t recommend - Tilly, her home, and this area highly enough!

    Fred2019-07-16T00:00:00Z
  • Tilly's home is just beautiful and the room is gorgeous, with your own bathroom. The location is also just stunning. Tilly was an amazing host - she was so accommodating and helpful and kind. I definitely recommend staying with Tilly to anyone who is in the area.

The hosts are incredibly helpful and friendly and the little touches that make your stay more comfortable is laudable. We’ll be back

    There are many good pubs nearby with great reputations for good food and friendly service . Close to a village shop and nearby Modbury for everyday needs.
  • A wonderful bolt hole to explore a beautiful part of the world. Laura was a very good host with quick responses, checking we had everything we needed and making sure we had some lovely scones on arrival. She even left some dog biscuits for our dog Monti. Exceptionally clean and loads of room. A real home from home

    Melanie2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you're looking for a quiet location this is for you. Splendid walks from the door. Being out of the main season, it was great for the dog as they are allowed on most of the beaches. Local pub offered good food, and the shop ....all only 5 mins drive away.

    Carol2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic lodge in a beautiful setting with everything you need! We wished we had booked for longer!

    Simon2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful lodge which was ideal for us and our 2 dogs! Laura made it very welcoming and left us some lovely treats which were an added bonus :) We did some great coast and beach walks nearby, the weather quite wild at times but the lodge very warm to come back too! I would definitely recommend and imagine in the summer it must be even better with the lovely terrace to enjoy :)

    Kate2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • We wanted a place away from everything to simply relax and take the dogs out for walks. We couldn’t have picked a better place. Very easy access to the coastal walk, 45min from Dartmoor... just what we wanted. The dogs were initially super excited but I fear they may attack us next time we say “walkies”. Big garden, amazing views, nice warm lodge. Perfect for relaxing! Highly recommended.

    Marco2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic base for exploring a wonderful part of South Devon. A well equipped, clean lodge in an extremely peaceful location that is within walking distance of a beautiful section of the South West coast path. Would highly recommend.

  • Marwell Lodge is in a beautiful quiet location in the grounds of the host's property. The lodge is secluded with plenty of outside space ,which is very well maintained and safe. The interior is lovely, spacious, clean with everything you need and lots of extra touches. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. The host was very helpful and welcoming. We stayed with our dog, who was also welcomed and he could move freely in the large garden.

    Alison2019-07-29T00:00:00Z

    Our charming shepherd hut provides cosy accommodation for two with stunning views to the countryside nestled in its own meadow on our small farm. Although our beautiful hut is hidden away in a peaceful quiet location, there’s something for everyone nearby. Located in the heart of the South Hams countryside near the town of Modbury there are spectacular views, walks and scenery all year round.
    Drive down our private lane and park in the car park before a short (200m) walk down the fields to access the hut. The double French doors open up to reveal a beautiful characterful interior. At one end is a built in double bed, with lots of storage underneath. There’s an open plan living and kitchen space with power points for your electrical items. A door at the other end leads to the shower room with electric shower and WC. For the colder nights you can stoke up the wood burner, providing plenty of warmth. The galley kitchen has all the basics (including tea, coffee and sugar) and provides a simple space with a useful drop-leaf table for cooking up your own meals. There is a fridge to keep the essentials cold and an electric hob, kettle and toaster. Outside the French doors is a decked covered balcony with table and chairs so you can relax and enjoy the views in peace and quiet. A perfect setting to enjoy an alfresco dinner at the end of the day or a game of cards. Feel free to use the BBQ or fire pit (some wood provided) in the evening, you may even hear the rustle of the local badgers, deer and wildlife in the fields. We are a short walk from Andrews Wood Nature Reserve, an established woodland with a collection of ferns and beautiful wildflowers. A walk through Andrews Wood takes you past a ruined farmstead and gardens long abandoned by people. Exmoor ponies graze the wood which is home to the Heath Lobelia which is thought to exist in just six locations in England, making Andrews Wood a site of Special Scientific Interest. A short 30 minute drive from the farm will find you in picturesque Dartmoor National Park for some breathtaking walks. In the opposite direction, some of the West Country’s best beaches can be found. Bantham or Bigbury for the surfers (or sunbathers!) and plenty of coastal paths for the hikers. If shopping is more your thing there are plenty of small towns to potter through including Totnes, Salcombe and Kingsbridge. There are lots of places to eat nearby more details and recommendations will be in your welcome pack. Less than a mile from the hut you can easily walk to the local pub which has a well-stocked shop opposite if you’ve left any of your essentials at home! There are lots of places to eat nearby
  • Had a lovely mini break here with my partner and my little dog. Jan was very helpful through the booking process as I had a few hiccups with the air bnb app. Her directions were spot on and she was very welcoming when we arrived and left us to our own devices for the duration of the visit. She had very kindly provided a water bowl, dog towel and some dog treats for my four legged friend which I thought was a lovely touch. The shepherds hut itself was very secluded and far from the main house, situated in a field that we had all to ourselves, which was lovely for my dog to play with toys when we weren't out exploring. And even though it was pretty cold outside, the woodburner made the place lovely and warm. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet little getaway and I would definitely visit again!

    Litty2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was clean and cosy and contained everything needed for a short break. We were unlucky with the weather so would love to return in the Summer months and enjoy the outside space. If you are looking for somewhere quiet and secluded to recharge your batteries this is ideal.

    Jody2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely couple of days at the cabin. It’s located at the end of a field so you are well out of the way and it’s lovely and quiet. The log burner does a great job heating the place and it was nice not to have to go outside to get to the loo/shower. The cabin was spotlessly clean and the bed nice and comfy. Good hot shower too. The cabin was easy to find and only a short drive to the coast for days walking and exploring the area. It’s beautiful even in January!

    Rebecca2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The shepherds hut was lovely - very toasty with the log burner and stylishly kitted out. We were a bit unfortunate with the weather (flood warnings and all!) so didn’t get the chance to make the most of the gorgeous location, but we were very happy snuggled up there. Thanks Jan!

    Alex2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect place for a weekend get away, would be perfect in the summer but still an amazing place in the winter because of the log burner and wood which is available to warm you up and allow you to cosy up in the cabin 😌😌 It’s a must for me if you want a countryside scape 👌🏼

    Mike2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • The space is beautifully decorated and sparkling clean, really easy to get to yet feels so secluded once there. A perfect space for a peaceful getaway. Would 100% recommend to all. Great walking routes, shopping and dining nearby. Will definitely be back!

    Emma2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderfully private and peaceful. A lovely cosy hut with everything you need and amazingly clean. The fire will keep you warm on even the coldest of nights. An excellent base to explore the local area.

    Rebecca2019-10-29T00:00:00Z
  • This was our second time staying at Jan's hut and it felt as if we were returning to a place that we own! As always, the hut was spotless clean and well stacked with coffee, tea, milk, sugar, wood for the log burner, etc. This time around we booked ourselves on the Great Robin Round Trip (Steam train, Bus and Steam Ferry) and it was lovely returning home to a warm and cosy cabin. We spent hours sat on the veranda, watching the stars and chatting. Maximum romance! I just love seeing the effect that this gorgeous secluded spot has on my often-stressed husband. Your place is magic, Jan, a real tonic and you're a wonderful hostess. Thank you so much for having us again, we can't wait to be back soon!

  • What a lovely place to be. Thank you to Sarah and Mark for helping to make our holiday perfect.

    sorrel 2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the place - it was fantastically clean and comfy. Our three boys had a great fun with your little dogs, horses, goats and ducks. Great place for little baby too. Everything was sparkling clean. Sarah and Mark are such a fantastic host and we all felt so welcomed. Superb experience and definitely recommended.

    Prachi2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time staying at Sarah's lodge. It was clean, spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated. A lot of care and attention to detail to ensure that travellers have a comfortable stay. The farm itself is lovely and peaceful. The children enjoyed seeing the animals everyday. We spent most of the time out visiting places, but it was nice to come back to a lovely peaceful lodge. Above all Sarah and Mark are really amazing hosts.....so friendly. I would thoroughly recommend farm for a stay.

    Nusrat2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage was well maintained with good interiors, big and spacious rooms, and comfy beds. Sarah and Mark had been great hosts, very cheerful and helpful. My kids loved the animals (Horses, Goats, Ducks and Dogs) they have at the cottage. Great place to relax and I strongly recommend Kennedon Lodge.

    Converted barn located in the centre of Modbury - a pretty South Hams market town. Great for family holidays or getaways, Modbury has all the amenities needed for an easy stay, but the house is set back from the street -giving privacy and tranquillity. Easy access to fabulous local beaches and Dartmoor National park and great walks from house. Private, safe, enclosed garden and parking space for 2/3 cars. Property in need of some updating - reflected in price - but clean and comfortable.
    Kitchen with breakfast table, dining room and light upstairs living room. Outside dining table and small summerhouse in garden. Small child and baby items can be provided, travel cot, high chair, toys etc on request.
    Modbury is a friendly bustling town with 3 pubs, several cafes, a couple of takeaways, delicatessen, charity shops, small supermarket, tourist information, friendly community church etc
  • Cottage off the street with a narrow entrance. Beware, to approach the entrance from uphill and not come down hill. A great place to spend a few days as shops within walking distance.

    Anne2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely perfect for us, we had a lovely stay & even got a cheeky few raspberries from the garden!

    Lottie Day2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

  • Such a beautiful location and lovely hostesses who go above and beyond for their guests. Their communication skills were phenomenal from directions, local places to go and even helping with the local takeaway through storm Dennis. Arrived on Valentine’s Day and such a warm welcome! Freshly home made bread to a beautiful bunch of flowers and even a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge! Highly recommended even if it’s raining! Will be returning in the summer! 5* and defiantly more!

    Dave2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Superbly presented and in a great location. Couldn't have had a better welcome with fresh bread, teas, milk etc etc in a brilliantly set-up apartment with southerly views across the valley.

    Tony2020-02-13T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great apartment, accurately described, well appointed, lovely comfortable bed and large bathroom with both bath and shower. Kay is a great host and provided some great welcoming touches; homemade bread, fresh orange juice, wine, tea, coffee, butter, jams and more. The best we have ever received at an Airbnb. The apartment was lovely and warm thanks to the ground source heat pump heating. We arrived in the middle of storm Ciara but the apartment kept us snug, warm and was quiet thanks to the double glazing. As Kay says the apartment is about 15 minutes to Bantham beach which we and our dog loved.

    John2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely beautiful little place, hidden deep in the valley, with a gorgeous view,we were treated to buzzards, sheep, birds and a nosy pheasant. No noise, pure tranquility.Great use of space, amazingly comfortable bed, slept so well, bath made it for us, was amazing. Loved the fresh bread still warm on arrival, jams marmalades, herbal teas, gorgeous coffee, fresh milk, juice, wine, butter and elderflower juice. We had a perfect weekend, couldn't of been better. The owner allowed us in early,we didn't live far away, it made it for us as it was kind of like an extra day. We will 100 percent book again. Thank you very much.

    Kelly2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great immaculate flat with most amazing view, nice terrace and garden. The flat is very close to bantham beach and some pubs as well. We were also very impressed with all the little touches made by Kay, nice flowers, home baked bread, jams, fresh milk and fresh juice and many more. Kay’s hospitality, her flat and location is definitely exceeded our expectations. We will definitely revisit in the summer and will recommend to our friends. Our dog loved the experience too, thank you so much.

    Nese2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • Driftwood is just as you imagine clean and a great place to stay Kay left some lovely food and drink which wasnt expected but greatfully received. West Buckland is a fab area and so quiet and the beach at Bantham was amazing even in January

    Ruth2019-10-22T00:00:00Z

    Jane2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing peaceful haven. We had everything we needed, and easy access to so many beautiful areas. Joe and Heather, and their lovely dog Dulie, made us feel very welcome.

    Kathryn2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Heather and Joe are the nicest couple you possibly can imagine. The house is exactly like on the pictures and it has got a separate garden as well. We had a wonderful time there (and with thme) and they made our journey truly special! We can only highly recommend this spot to the whole AirBnB community! Thanks again! Martin & Monika

    Martin And Monika2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • We have just returned from a lovely relaxing few days in The Blue House. It was spotlessly clean & the situation was perfect for a quiet few days in beautiful gardens. Our hosts supplied some lovely home made bread & breakfast items & couldn’t have been more helpful plus they have a very friendly dog who was a pleasure to play ball with.

    Jill2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, easy to get too and only short distance from Yealmpton and Modbury. Comfy and cosy place with everything you need for a week away. Hospitality was amazing with homemade bread there for when we arrived, milk marmalade, coffee, tea and sugar all supplied there. Even ice cubes and ice packs in the freezer for us to use. Would definitely stay again if we came back to the area. Thank you to Joe and Heather.

    Adam2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Blue House is an absolute gem and we recommend it as a place to stay without reservation. Joe and Heather are thoughtful, excellent hosts, for whom nothing was too much trouble. We can only echo the very positive reviews by previous guests that made us choose the Blue House in the first place. The house and contents were spotlessly clean, we had everything we needed in terms of facilities and amenities and the location was excellent. We would have been happy to spend the time just resting in the peaceful, magical garden!

    Pauline2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The accomodation was exactly as described, plenty of space and very clean and well organised. It was well decorated and furnished and had everything needed for our stay. We would have loved to stay longer if time had allowed. Jo and Heather couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful. The home made bread was a delight and together with the other breakfast things was a really great touch. Very thoughtful. Overall a terrific experience. Thank you.

    Helen2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Heather and Joe (not to forget Julie the dog!) were the kindest of hosts. We felt more than welcome and well accommodated in their paradise of a garden and the Blue House. They were always available and eager to make our stay an unforgettable experience.

  • What an amazing place to stay. We stayed at 'gateway to the moors' to allow us to be near a race we were running which finished nearby. We were greeted and shown round by Cheryl. We had an early start the next day and they had kindly laid us up a help yourself continental breakfast which was very welcome including homemade bread and overnight porridge which were a real hit. The hosts were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We arrive quite late and were made tea/coffee and offered cake too. Always a winner. The place was lovely and clean and was really well situated for exploring Ivybridge and surrounding area along with Dartmoor which was right on the door step. Highly recommended. Thank you so much

    Christy2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Cheryl and her husband were perfect hosts. They welcomed me and a friend with a great hospitality. The communication was super easy. They also came up with a great breakfast. If I’m back in the region I would definitely book this location.

    Christopher2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • What a fantastic place! Cheryl and John made us feel so welcome with their warm hospitality and friendliness. They gave us advice about our walk (The Two Moors Way) and provided lifts when we were stuck! They could not have been more accommodating and they helped everything go smoothly. We would definitely recommend their establishment. Great value and the breakfast was awesome too! Thank you.

    Sara-Jane2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Cheryl was a great host. She was flexible, quick to respond and welcomed us warmly into her home. The room was cosy and the bathroom nice and big. Everything was spotless and well taken care of. The freshly cooked breakfast was just what we needed for a good day. Thank you Cheryl, we would stay with you again anytime!

  • Penny was a fantastic host and went above and beyond to ensure our stay went smoothly as possible. She was always there to answer any questions we had and was very accommodating. She provided us with bread, granola and eggs for when we arrived which we thought was a lovely touch! The hayloft is beautifully designed, cosy and comfortable! It is located in gorgeous countryside - we will definitely come back!

    Katrina2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at the Hayloft! Penny made everything so easy, and the place is perfectly designed for 2 people! We will certainly be booking again in summer!

    Hannah2020-03-04T00:00:00Z

    Julian2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • What a treat to stay at Penny's hayloft. Spotlessly clean, lovely touches (like the addition oat milk, which I appreciated being vegan). Penny's eye for interior design and her choice of original artwork were a pleasure to be around. The bed was so comfy I resented coming back to ours. Everything was perfect inside and the location was excellent. There was a lovely little area where it would have been nice to eat if we hadn't stayed during Storm Dennis :-) Would recommend highly.

    Angie2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Simply beautiful, lovely place. Tea, coffee, biscuits, eggs provided and a full functioning kitchen. It's quite a way from shops so I would bring some bread with you for the morning if you want to have breakfast there. Lovely decor, it felt like home :)

    Anna2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful little hideaway for getting away from it all, but with easy access to the moor and the sea. I especially loved the extra comfy bed and the artwork (oil paintings) on the walls! Definitely a place to come back to.

    Aileen2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely five nights at penny's place in January. Great location for exploring south Dartmoor and also some of the beautiful coastal walks south Devon has to offer. The flat has everything you need, super comfy bed, lovely bath and shower and well equipped kitchen. Thoughtfully decorated and perfect for a relaxing break. It's a converted barn so almost all the natural light comes through the skylights but this just made it very cosy in the winter. Also bonus of some fresh eggs left out was a lovely surprise. Thank you for a great stay!

    Jennifer2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay at this completely out of the way haven of peace! Stayed on a wet blustery night but the room was warm, cosy and had a lovely modern bathroom with a lush shower. The main house is extremely old and has loads of character and appears to be part of a farm, I didn't get the chance to meet the hosts but Charlotte communicated extremely quickly to any queries. Would stay again!

    Explore all that South Devon has to offer from our doorstep! From beach to Tor, our base is ideally placed: a short drive to the coast, as well as 15 minutes to Ivybridge, the doorway to Dartmoor. Modbury itself is a quaint market town with three pubs to explore, all within walking distance of our front door. Includes breakfast. We are pet friendly and have our own Cocker Spaniel puppy who lives upstairs with us. Interaction as guests prefer. See our other listing if looking for 2 rooms!
    Based on a quiet road a few turns off the high street, our home is within walking distance of everything Modbury has to offer. Our house is an upside-down house, with our guest rooms and private bathroom based on the ground floor, with our living space on the 1st and 2nd floor. Our main guest room (pictured) is a light, clean, roomy bedroom with a double bed. There is ample space to unpack, with a tall wardrobe and a chest of drawers. The window looks out onto our very quiet street and feels very private. In winter, you won't be cold, with central heating and extra blankets provided for your comfort if needed. If we are in during the evenings, you are welcome to join us enjoying our open fire in the living room. In the summer, we can provide a fan if sunny Devon gets too much for our guests! You may also feel free to take advantage of our 1st floor sun-trap terrace. Free parking is available on our street, with an often unused spot directly across from our house. In the rare occasion this is filled, you can find other free spaces on the nearby streets. As mentioned above, we are pet friendly and have our own Cocker Spaniel puppy. The dog is not allowed in the guest room and is kept separately upstairs, so interaction can be kept to a minimum if required. Included in your stay: - Free fast WiFi - Continental breakfast with fresh fruit (let us know if you have any dietary requirements and we will try to cater accordingly). If the weather is warm enough, this can be served on our terrace over looking the hills. - Towels, including beach towels if required - Hair dryer - Access to iron/ironing board - Access to our courtyard garden & terrace - Use of washing machine/tumble dryer if required
    Modbury is a charming small market town, with a quirky edge (proudly claiming to be the first UK town to ban the use of plastic bags - since 2007!) With modern amenities such as pubs, takeaways, art galleries and cafes, Modbury is also steeped in history, the town itself having been recorded in the Doomsday book. Modbury means "meeting place" in Old English. Modbury is ideal to access everything that South Devon has to offer: A walkers paradise, with Dartmoor, the South West Coast Path, South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a variety of heritage trail walks around the town itself. If it is the sea that draws you, you cannot beat Bantham, Bigbury on Sea and our personal favourite, Mothecome - all a short drive from Modbury.
  • Very comfortable room, immaculate and stylish. I love a good shower, this one was just perfect.. can’t think of anything that would make our stay any better.

    Angelina2020-03-08T00:00:00Z

  • Would recommend this room to anyone wanting to stay in South Devon. The room was so comfortable and clean and Beth and Chris were such lovely hosts- we were spoilt with a delicious breakfast of pastries, yoghurt and fresh fruit both mornings. The house is just off the main road of Modbury which is a very pretty town. Beth and Chris recommended some great walks to us, washed down with some good pub grub; we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

    Isobel2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

  • Very central house in this lovely old village - a short walk to ther shops, pubs and countryside as well convenient for drive to gorgeous beaches. Very clean bedroom and ensuite bathroom with good shower. Comfortable bed. Hosts very helpful and friendly. Delicious breakfast made by Beth of toast, croissants or ceral and freshly brewed coffee. No view from the bedroom but despite overlooking the small street, it was quiet at night. Very accommodating to our young dog.

  • We really enjoyed our stay with Beth and Chris. They are very accommodating and willing to help if you need anything. The property is lovely as is the location. The house is very comfortable and clean. The Town itself is very charming and locals very friendly. Would recommend the Modbury Inn and Exeter Inn to have a cheeky drink or some dinner. The welcome book is also very helpful with advice on where to go and things to do. Thank you very much to both of you and not forgetting Finn.

    From your own, private terrace you can enjoy the fabulous views of the South Hams countryside and Dartmoor. Watch the most extraordinarily beautiful sunsets followed by an explosion of colour across the sky. As the night sets in, enjoy a glass of wine whilst wrapped up in a fleece throw provided and simply stargaze to the sound of owls hooting. Our pretty timber cabin is situated in a private location surrounded by fields but only a stone's throw from the heritage market town of Modbury.
    The cabin has two cosy bedrooms each with a standard double bed furnished with crisp cotton bed linen and with thick, fluffy white towels. One bedroom has an en suite shower and wc and there is a separate bathroom. The light and airy living room has comfortable sofas and is equipped with free Wi-Fi, TV/DVD player, Roberts digital radio, board games, books and a selection of DVDs for you to enjoy. The well equipped kitchen has a washing machine, tumble dryer, double oven, hob and a fridge freezer. There is a kettle, toaster and Nespresso coffee machine for your use. Olive oil and a selection of herbs are provided and enough muesli, milk, coffee and tea to get you started. French windows open from the dining area and take you to the decked terrace which has table and chairs and a gas barbecue. The cabin has central heating making it perfect for use all year round. The Nest is on a farm property so there is plenty of parking available.
    The Nest at Little Sheepham, is perfectly situated equidistant between the fabulous South Devon coast and glorious Dartmoor so for those of you who find it difficult to decide whether to go for a country holiday or a coastal holiday, this is perfect; you can have both! Our pretty local town of Modbury has a Co-op, butchers and delicatessen and is a lovely place to wander and explore the interesting shops, galleries, cafes and pubs. Treat yourself to coffee and cake at one of the cafes or visit the ancient Exeter Inn for lunch. Spend time at our favourite beach ( 15 minutes away) at the entrance to the Erme Estuary, part of the Flete Estate where parts of the films Sense and Sensibility and International Velvet were filmed. Bantham and Bigbury Beaches are 20 minutes away. The beautiful coastal town of Dartmouth is only 25 minutes drive away. It is easy to spend at least a day looking around the eclectic collection of shops or taking a boat trip up the River Dart to Dittisham or as far as Totnes. Dartmouth has some great restaurants and pubs. The pretty harbour town of Salcombe is a mere 20 minutes drive. If the sun is shining, take the passenger ferry across to Mill bay beach. Totnes makes for an interesting day's shopping in particular on Fridays when there is a colourful market in the morning. There are some wonderful coastal walks locally, some in particular offer the opportunity for a circular walk with a lunch stop at a pub! Take a trip onto Dartmoor and enjoy the wilderness but drive carefully as the native ponies, sheep and cattle roam freely. There are some amazing walks on the moor for all abilities from a short gentle stroll to a decent day's hike. There are some lovely villages to visit on the moors and some great cafes, farm shops and pubs to grab refreshments. We are only 10 minutes from the A38, making us not only easy to get to but also making a day trip to Exeter or a lunch at Rick Stein's in Padstow, Cornwall a real possibility.

  • You can be assured of a great host team looking after your stay at 'Pentille'. From initial booking, through to arrival and recommendations for eateries and ideas to while away the time; we were made to feel most welcome. The property is sparkling clean and in the most enviable location, 12m above sea level on the South West Coast footpath. Just a short 30 metre walk to the sandy beach. Great for families especially with the RNLI lifeguards and waves for body boarding. Some great walks direct from the property with maps and ideas available in the informative welcome pack. A fantastic place to wake up, throw open the curtains and drink in the vistas with your morning coffee. Definetly a place to keep coming back to and recharge ones batteries.

    Keith2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Pentillie is an absolutely delightful cottage situated on the beautiful South Devon coastline with only a few steps to the beach. Fully equipped with everything you need . A place to relax and enjoy the wonderful scenery or explore the local historic areas. A tremendous find .

Really , everything was perfect for us! Coastal walks, bodyboarding daily, that amazing view and the relaxing sound of the waves. All four of us , and Archie dog, felt completely at home! We cannot recommend Pentillie highly enough. Thank you !

  • A really lovely find - great location, lots of space to explore with enclosed space around the caravan so ideal for little ones. Had everything we needed for a few days away at a brilliant place. Our 2 year old loved saying night night to all the animals before bedtime! Sarah and Mark are lovely and very welcoming and would certainly stay again.

    Caroline2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much for letting us stay in your caravan - it was so thoughtfully arranged, with little homely touches that were really appreciated. The boys loved the caravan, their bedroom and all the space to run around in - it was a bit of a shame that the weather came in for the end of our stay so that we couldn't take full advantage of the garden and fields - but the caravan certainly stayed cozy on our wild, windy adventure! Beautiful area of the country and we would love to come back!

    Tricia2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay at Kennedon Farm caravan, it was so peaceful. The caravan was spotless and well equipped, having the shed gave us extra storage space too. The enclosed garden allowed the girls to play outside, and they helped feed the horses and loved fussing Poppy the dog. Sarah and Mark were very welcoming hosts. And there is lots to see and do close by too.

    Geraldine2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and Mark were both lovely hosts, and very approachable. Their place is amazingly great value for money, we attended a wedding at Shilstone house which was really not that far. About 10 minutes drive max. Being from a city we struggled with the windy Devonshire roads but once the journey was done a few times you easily remember the routes. We also left our little boys rucksack within the caravan which they immediately called us once they found it. Unfortunately too far away to turn round but the hosts are agreeing to post it to us! - what more could you ask for? Comfy beds, lots of leaflets on things to do in the area and an easy to use kitchen. Amazing place and will remember this one to pop back and stay again. Thank you Sarah and Mark.

    Our spacious family home is close to the beach and has beautiful views over the estuary. Bigbury is the perfect location for a beach holiday in Devon. The expansive sandy beach is just a walk away and plenty of water sports are on offer.
    Guests would have a good sized double room with a king sized bed (and space for a travel cot if needed). There is an en-suite shower room with a large shower, and a walk in wardrobe area too. Breakfast will be a informal meal, with a choice of cereals, bread, toast etc. Other options may be available by arrangement.
    Bigbury has a very popular beach and gets very busy in the summer. Our house is at the top of Folly Hill in Bigbury on Sea so it is away from the hustle and bustle but still close enough to walk to the beach (down a steep hill). We also have access to a footpath running down a farm field to Cockle Ridge which is a beautiful quiet beach on the side of the river mouth.
  • The cottage is very spacious and accommodated our party of 5 adults, one toddler and twin babies. Although the beach is within walking distance, this is not recommended if you have small children to carry plus beach equipment. Parking nearby can cost upto £12 a day.

    Martie2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had the perfect weekend and a part if me would like to keep Rebecca's house a secret! The location of the house meant we could stroll through beautiful fields to the beach. Rebecca was a generous, helpful and welcoming host. We very much hope to visit again and explore more of the area.

    Suzanne2017-08-28T00:00:00Z

  • My family and I really enjoyed the stay at Rebecca's. Rebecca had left us supper in the fridge the night we arrived and that made us feel very welcome. The house is larger than we expected and very child friendly, the kids loved all the toys Rebecca had left for us and the little garden in front of the house. The beach is just a short walk away. Bigbury on sea is an amazing place! The views are breathtaking! We most certainly recommend it.

    The Oak Nest is a wild private area of the farm adjoining a 100 acre nature reserve. We replaced the beloved bell tent with our shepherds hut for 2018 it is off grid and is comfortably furnished with a double bed, nearby private compost loo and alfresco hot shower and covered cooking/washing up area. There is a nearby parachute shelter over a fire pit. An ideal setting for peace, wildlife and outdoor living, but cosy and close to beaches and the moor. Certainly Far From The Madding Crowd!
    The sun comes up over the nature reserve and the shepherds hut has a beautiful view over wildflower moorland. We built it from recycled materials and I use it myself when lambing in March and April. Clean and tidy now for guests but there are tell tale signs of its authenticity if you peer underneath! The mattress is very comfortable and all basic cooking /kitchen requirements are supplied along with tea coffee eggs on arrival. Bedding, linen and towels are provided but we can offer a reduction if you bring your own. We can provide charging for mobile phones at the barn. A decking area with table is a romantic place to have meals and there is a fire pit/campfire area. There is space for friends to put up tents, please ask us about this and we will give you charges at the time. It is also possible to put our little gypsy caravan in the Oak Nest by the shepherds hut for older children or another couple please ask. It is an ideal space for a couple who dont have their own tent but want to enjoy the outdoors. The camp fire area can accomodate a group and there are further compost loos in an adjoining field..
    We are a 45 acre small holding and we adjoin Andrews Wood Nature reserve which is run by Devon Wild Life trust. We are in an area of outstanding natural beauty. Drive to Central Dartmoor is about 30-40 minutes and the beautiful beaches of Bantham and Bigbury for surfing and rockpooling about 5 miles. Transition Town Totnes is about 10 miles away. Sailing is available at nearby Salcombe also about 10 miles.. There is a pub and garage with shop within walking distance.
  • Janet is a very helpful and hospitable host. Unfortunately,due to unforeseen circumstances,we had to leave soon after arrival. Janet was sympathetic and understanding. The location is beautiful and the hut is charming and has everything you would need for a quiet,relaxing holiday.

    Lee2019-09-30T00:00:00Z
  • This is a magical spot - unspoilt and peaceful. The Shepherd’s Hut is cosy and well equipped - there is no choice but to kick back and relax! This was one of our favourite nights away ever - just the sounds of the wildlife to enhance the peace. Janet and Simon are wonderful hosts and the facilities are fabulous - the bed is warm and snug and the outdoor shower beneath the oak tree is brilliant (and toasty!) xx

    Gemma2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect! We just fell head over heels in love with the whole place. Location is beautiful and is close enough to local beaches for a day out. Sweet Shepherds Hut that stays lovely and warm with plenty of space and a very comfortable bed! Just ideal for that off grid break. They had supplied everything you can think of and were very welcoming and helpful. Couldn't fault it!

    Leanne2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing long weekend at the Shepard's hut. It was better than expected, totally peaceful and beautiful location. Facilities are great, very well equipped, lots of attention to detail. Having the nature reserve literally next to us was great, lovely walks in the woods. We would definitely come again and worth the 5 hour drive from Manchester.

    Becky2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • I can't really put into words how magical and special Cuckoo Farm is. We fell totally in love with it - so much so that I decided to propose to my fiancé as we lay in bed watching the world go by from the Shepherds hut. Janet is a wonderful host who went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. She had brilliant tips for make the most of our stay and exploring the area. The clearing where you stay is totally separate and private from the rest of the farm and although you're only a short walk from the house you feel like you're in your own little world. It's paradise and we'll 100% be coming back again.

    Chesney2019-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • Firstly, I’d like to say a big thank you to Janet and her husband for their hospitality. I booked the shepherds hut as a surprise for my partners birthday and my expectations were exceeded!!! The hut is amazing and in such a beautiful location. The facilities were great, we had everything we needed and more. I would highly recommend and we will certainly be returning! Thank you so much :) x

    Laura2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

  • Wonderful home from home. Great dog friendly place, gorgeous cottage in a pretty postcard village. Tip though...stock up on basics as there is no shop in the village. Great walk to the beach across spectacular scenery. Loved it!

  • We had a wonderful stay at this - typical English- cosy little cottage! The hosts were very helpful in providing all the things we needed and more! There were generous welcoming gifts, ideas as to what places to visit, fresh flowers and a baby cot. We hope to be able to visit it again some day!

  • Beautiful cottage in a lovely rural area of Devon - lots of nice walks and nature in the area, a good pub in the village and as a previous reviewer noted, a beautiful night sky if you get a clear night!

  • Emiliys Cottage is a cosy, quiet, nice little cottage with a beautiful flower garden in front and fields beyond the backyard. We enjoyed our stay there very much. We didn't meet our hosts Laura and Simon in person which was no problem as they responded to every message almost immediately. I can recommend staying in Emilys Cottage and hope doing so myself some time soon.

  • This place is just beautiful! If you are looking for a peaceful get away then this is the place. A very picturesque English village and the cottage is so quaint and homely but perfectly placed to explore the Devonshire coastline. I’ve never experienced such a quiet nights sleep! Try and get in the garden after sunset and look at the stars if it’s clear - I’ve never seen so many!!
