About the property

1 Bedroom ,1 Bathroom with sea and country views

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.

About Mandy Kellaway

Me and my partner Andrew Hemming love the farming life. I was born in Devon and have grown up and always lived on a farm so guess its in my blood. Andy moved down from where he was born in oxford many years ago. We both love the smallholding we have purchased and like to think we are quite self sufficient in what we do we love our veg patch and love growing our own food. Our animals play a huge roll in our lives as most of them have names and are also part of the family. We are self employed and run a successful home and garden company called M and A Services so busy out working by day and doing the farm when we get home. We live on site so are there if and when you need anything.

Why Mandy Kellaway chose Barnstaple

The property is peaceful, cosy, warm, romantic, inviting and hopefully has all the amenities you need for this type of holiday. The location is remote, spectacular scenery, wildlife haven and a little bit further afield you will find a walkers paradise, also alongside the Tarka trail cycling route and on the outskirts of Exmoor national Park.

There are lots of attractions near by Exmoor Zoo, Combe Martin wildlife and Dinosaur Park a short drive away towards the coast, while Woolacombe, Croyde, and Saunton are all within twenty miles for a day at the sea.

Wistlandpound Reservoir, six miles away, is a popular spot for family days filled with nature trails, bird watching and wildlife spotting.
