About the property

Christine's Hut is sited on its own in our paddock on the edge of the village.

Looking for the ideal romantic weekend or short mid-week get-away? Look no further. Our cosy Shepherd’s Hut will fit the bill.

We can provide the perfect solution to those looking for a chance to escape from the hustle and bustle of busy lives. This is an opportunity to really relax and unwind in lovely, peaceful surroundings. With beautiful views in the day, amazing evening sunsets and starry, starry night skies (weather permitting!)

The Shepherd’s Hut is situated in its own enclosed paddock, adjacent to our home, Bridge End. It is ideal for couples requiring a short break in the West Country. Located in the beautiful countryside of north-west Devon, our nearest town is Holsworthy, 2 miles (5 mins) away, with its branch of Waitrose and renowned Wednesday farmer’s markets.

The hut is fully equipped for easy self-catering and has everything you might need for your stay. The kitchen and en-suite shower room are fully plumbed, with hot and cold running water. An electric heater and towel rail ensures you will be toasty warm, whatever the weather. A comfortable double bed folds up to provide a table and two padded bench seats for dining and relaxing. All bed linen and towels are included.

The private area outside the hut is furnished with a café table and chairs for al fresco eating and a fire pit to toast marshmallows and keep you warm.

We’ll supply you with a small “welcome pack” to start your break (either breakfast or a cream tea). If you are celebrating a special event – birthday, anniversary or perhaps an engagement – we can arrange for a bottle of “fizz”, chocolates or flowers to greet you on your arrival.

The holiday town of Bude with its famous surfing beaches is easily accessible (approx. 20 mins by car). Other local attractions include the lovely north-west coastline with sandy beaches and beautiful cliff walks. With the Ruby Way and Tamar Lakes close by; the area is also ideal for walking, cycling, fishing and horse riding. Alternatively, the award-winning gardens of RHS Rosemoor and various National Trust properties, such as Lanhydrock will give you a day out to remember.

Three night stay in the shepherds hut.

  • 5 of 5

Despite the hammering from the wind and rain we endured the weekend of our stay the hut was warm, cosy and dry. We had a super time, the hut was lovely and clean and had everything there we needed. After a long day out in the rain the hot shower was fantastic and the bed so comfortable. It was a pleasure to meet Christine and David, who gave us some helpful tips on where to go and good places to eat. Christine can bake a mean scone I'll have you know. Thank you having us.

Shepherds Delight

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful shepherds hut as described, it was immaculately maintained and we were met by David who personally walked us over to the hut, as it was raining , with an umbrella. We were treated to some warm scones on arrival, shown all the facilities and greeted in a friendly manner. I would recommend this this Shepherds Hut as an excellent resting place and a superb base to explore Devon and Cornwall. We stayed for two nights and slept well. Both Christine and David we impeccable hosts and were very helpful with information.

thank you for a great stay

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the review, Aaron and Chloe. It was really a pleasure to meet you both and we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, despite the awful weather on Saturday. However, at least you were able to make the most of Friday evening, sitting under the stars, keeping warm with the firepit. We hope your friends will be able to come and stay with us. Kindest regards Christine and David
