This unique and stylish lodge/shepherd’s hut with hot tub is a fun and exciting property which nestles in an enclosed and private part of the owners’ 300-acre farmland in a beautiful part of Devon.

There is much to see and do nearby with the cathedral city of Exeter being just a short drive away and offering a huge variety of shops, restaurants and amenities to suit all ages and tastes. Closer to home is the charming town of Tiverton which has a variety of shops and a pretty canal from where you can see horse-drawn barges and even hire one for the day. You can visit the idyllic thatched inn at Bickleigh for a bite to eat or a drink, or take a guided tour of Bickleigh Castle, both situated on the banks of the River Exe. Dartmoor National Park is a short drive away, offering great walks and beautiful scenery. This unique property comprises two separate buildings. The lodge provides a comfortable living space incorporating a stylish lounge/kitchen/diner. The lounge is ideal for relaxing in, with a TV/DVD, while the dining area is ideal whether you’re enjoying a snack or sitting down to a special meal. In the elegant kitchen area, you will find everything you may need including a range-style gas oven and hob, fridge/freezer and microwave. There’s also a wet room with shower and WC, and a further separate WC, both accessed via the private decked area behind the lodge. Heading over to the shepherd’s hut, you will find the cosy sleeping area, with double bed, wood burner (logs included) and tea/coffee making facilities.

Outside, the property is fully enclosed, and you will find a decked area with a large private sunken hot tub, garden furniture and BBQ. There’s a separate suntrap decked area outside the shepherd’s hut, providing a sunny spot to relax and sunbathe or just enjoy the peace and tranquillity. There is also a small separate paddock ideal for ball games or exercising your dog. Parking is available for two cars.

Certainly a "get away from it all" location. The hot tub was excellent, as was the shepherd's hut. The seclusion was brilliant and perfect for a romantic holiday. The visiting cows in the adjacent field made novel holiday companions. Some nice pubs in the vicinity as well for eating out.
