Come and stay in our unique, handcrafted shepherd's hut / tiny home crossover. Tucked into a sheltered, private corner of its own secluded paddock it enjoys a swathe of outdoor space ~ firepit, hot outdoor shower, sheltered sun trap ~ all framed by freshly-planted apple trees.
It's loving fitted but compact inside - ideal for a solo retreat or a close couple!

The space
We've designed it as a peaceful retreat from the world's demands, with access to the full 16 acre site ~ walks, valley views, mature woods and stream to explore..
Vintage repurposed stained-glass windows look out over the purpose-built kitchen with gas hobs and mains water.
Solar-powered lighting and a beautiful wood-burning stove warm the space.
Sleep soundly on a locally-made organic Appledore mattress clothed with Egyptian cotton.
A clean and characterful compost loo.
A coolbox is provided with ice blocks available on request.

- 15 mins from the edge of Dartmoor, the most beautiful and formidable wilderness in the south west
- 30 mins from a plethora of amazing beaches fringing the spectacular South Devon coastline
- 20 mins from the Dartington Estate with medieval hall, gardens, cinema and walks along the Dart river
