Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Shepherd's View is situated in a quiet corner of the meadow behind our centuries old thatched farmhouse. We are based just outside South Molton in the beautiful North Devon countryside on the edge of Exmoor.

The hut is totally off grid allowing you to get away from it all. There is a separate compost toilet and hot shower only a few steps away. We provide everything you need to make your own breakfast on the first morning, including fresh eggs and homemade bread.

The space
The Shepherd's hut has a comfy double mattress on a raised platform, with storage space underneath. There is a woodburning stove which makes the hut lovely and cosy in the evenings! We provide guests with everything they need for the fire - lighters, kindling, and logs - and will of course show you how to get it going. There is a small table and chairs in case you want to eat inside.

The hot shower and compost toilet are housed separately, approx. 10 metres behind the hut. Cooking facilities are under a large "scout" canvas awning, and include a rustic table, chairs, pots & pans, utensils, and a two burner gas stove with small grill. There is also a barbecue.
There is a chimenea to keep you warm if you are dining al fresco or sitting out under the stars - we are only a few miles from Exmoor, Europe's First Dark Sky Reserve, and on a clear night the stars are simply stunning.

Waiting for you on arrival will be a cool box full of goodies for you to make your own breakfast. This includes homemade spelt bread, fresh eggs from our chickens, homemade jam and marmalade, cereal, milk, bacon, mushrooms, tea and coffee. The ice blocks can be exchanged daily in the cool box with fresh ones from the house.

The site is totally off grid allowing you to switch off and getaway from it all. Don't worry though, we have plenty of torches, solar lamps to light your way to the shower and loo, and gas lamps in the catering tent. It is a 75 metre walk up the grass track from the parking area to the hut. We are also happy for guests to pitch a tent for their children close to the Shepherd's hut for an additional £10 per person per night.

It's a good idea to arrive before dark so that you can get your bearings, and we recommend you bring wellies and waterproofs !!

Guest access
There is plenty of green space around the hut for you to enjoy, and no one else with you .The hut stands alone . We are happy for you wander around and look at what we are growing in the garden and polytunnels at the back of the house. The front garden is our private space.

Other things to note

We can accomodate well behaved dogs , but they must be kept on a lead , and all poo cleared up . We would appreciate you emailing us first if you want to bring a dog .We charge an additional £10 cleaning fee if you want to bring your four legged friend, which is payable on arrival.
You may pitch a tent for additional adults or children at a cost of £10/ pp per night

I have been nursing all my working life and retired three years ago. Ant my husband and I have been running a market garden here at Radley for the past 10 years but have now retired . Too much hard work , and too old ! We have five children between us , and 3 grandchildren, so are always busy. I enjoy reading, travelling, craft work, and am currently learning to play the organ .
