Full description
An exquisitely handcrafted hideaway, looking out over a serene Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Looking for all the world like a welcoming haven you've just stumbled across whilst on a windswept Devon country walk, Sweetsides Shepherd's Hut is something uniquely special.

For starters, its location is truly magnificent, overlooking the rolling Devon hills that surround the Salcombe Estuary - a setting designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with very good reason. Peaceful and unspoilt, this is the ideal backdrop for a couple looking for romantic reconnection, in a heavenly hideaway bespoke-crafted for comfort.

Lovingly created from reclaimed materials salvaged from the nearby working farm, there is a warmly rustic feel from the moment you step inside the mostly wooden hut-on-wheels. Blissfully WiFi-free, you can't help but feel relaxed as you survey your cosy space, complete with its antique woodburner and deliciously cosy bed surrounded by soft, twinkling lights.

You'll also find a separate, window-fronted kitchen cabin and dining area, an adjoining shower room with plenty of piping hot water, and a compost toilet built on the hill.  

After a silent night's sleep and a hearty home-cooked breakfast, why not put on those walking shoes and take a ramble through the surrounding sheep-dotted meadow? There are so many walks to enjoy in this area that you'll soon become addicted to the clean, fresh country air and the outstanding scenery to be found in every direction.  

Perhaps begin by strolling across the hill farm, down to the private foreshore on the edge of the Salcombe Estuary, complete with picture-postcard views. Just don't forget to bring your camera!

Later on, why not plan a pit stop in the village of South Pool, just 10 minutes away from your hut and featuring a charming local pub.

Of course, your break doesn't have to mean slow-lane relaxation all the time! For example, how about kayaking your way through the Estuary, or paying a visit to the fresh surfing beaches Devon is rightly famous for, and riding the crest of a few waves?

However you choose to spend your days, with evening sunsets blazing brightly over the secluded valley below, and the unpolluted skies above extra clear and starry, what more could you possibly need?  

Simply fire up the barbecue, open up a chilled bottle of wine, and get to know each-other all over again, in the serene comfort of Sweetsides Shepherd's Hut.
