The handcrafted shepherd's hut sits in its own garden area, separated from the rest of the orchard field (and the wanderings of any friendly farm animals) by a little picket fence, with a smashing barbecue area and a picnic bench for alfresco feasts. The hut is also fully insulated and has a kitchenette with a gas burner and a sink, a table and chairs for two to dine comfortably on, as well as a cosy double bed with fresh linens provided, the hut's little log burner generates enough heat to keep the hut nice and toasty throughout the winter months and can be used on cooler summer nights too, if needed, so you're guaranteed a swell stay no matter the season
Benton View shepherd's hut has views across the lovely countryside to the sea, Hartland Point and Lundy island.
There is no electric in the hut, but it does have solar lighting and phone charging points. Fresh filtered water from the site's own well is available in the kitchen area, with a caddy supplied to take back to the hut.
Outside you'll find a barbecue area with seating for alfresco dining, and a bird table to keep the wildlife entertained. Parking is just outside the field not far from the hut, and just a short walk away is the kitchen area and facilities.
Sleeping two comfortably, guests are welcome to pitch a tent alongside to create extra space for children or friends. The site is booked exclusively, so there won't be any campers not connected to your booking.
It's the perfect holiday for anyone looking to get out into the peaceful countryside, with hands on experience on a farm or just to take time out and relax and recharge their batteries.
Sorry, no dogs.
