Shepherd Hut at Little Sheepham

1 unit · Glamping25 acres · Modbury, England
The Shepherd Hut at Little Sheepham, is perfectly situated equidistant between the fabulous South Devon coast and glorious Dartmoor so for those of you who find it difficult to decide whether to go for a country holiday or a coastal holiday, this is perfect; you can have both! Our pretty local town of Modbury has a Co-op, butchers and delicatessen and is a lovely place to wander and explore the interesting shops, galleries, cafes and pubs. Treat yourself to coffee and cake at one of the cafes or visit the ancient Exeter Inn for lunch. Spend time at our favourite beach ( 15 minutes away) at the entrance to the Erme Estuary, part of the Flete Estate where parts of the films Sense and Sensibility and International Velvet were filmed. Bantham and Bigbury Beaches are 20 minutes away. The beautiful coastal town of Dartmouth is only 25 minutes drive away. It is easy to spend at least a day looking around the eclectic collection of shops or taking a boat trip up the River Dart to Dittisham or as far as Totnes. Dartmouth has some great restaurants and pubs. The pretty harbour town of Salcombe is a mere 20 minutes drive. If the sun is shining, take the passenger ferry across to Mill bay beach. Totnes makes for an interesting day's shopping in particular on Fridays when there is a colourful market in the morning. There are some wonderful coastal walks locally, some in particular offer the opportunity for a circular walk with a lunch stop at a pub! Take a trip onto Dartmoor and enjoy the wilderness but drive carefully as the native ponies, sheep and cattle roam freely. There are some amazing walks on the moor for all abilities from a short gentle stroll to a decent day's hike. There are some lovely villages to visit on the moors and some great cafes, farm shops and pubs to grab refreshments. We are only 10 minutes from the A38, making us not only easy to get to but also making a day trip to Exeter or a lunch at Rick Stein's in Padstow, Cornwall a real possibility.

The Shepherdess Hut

1 unit · Glamping15 acres · Ilfracombe, Devon, South West England
Set in a hilltop near Ilfracombe in North Devon, Fullabrook Farm Retreat is home to The Shepherdess shepherd’s hut. Based on a family-run working farm, this romantic hut is ideal for a couples’ holiday amid spectacular woodland views – plus the chance to have the place to yourselves – apart from the grazing sheep in nearby fields of course. Built from scratch by the site owners, the hut is decked out with a kingsize bed, dining and living space, plus an en-suite bathroom with a powerful, hot shower. Thoughtful extras here include robes and toiletries, plus a TV for chilling. There’s a gas oven and hob in the modern kitchenette, alongside a fridge with freezer and a stylish Belfast sink. There’s no danger of you feeling the cold on chillier evenings, as the hut has its own central heating. For those sunny evenings, the private patio has a barbecue, tables and a firepit, so you can dine outside and cosy up around the fire as the night sets in – look out for some spectacular sunsets and starry displays on clear evenings. If you can manage to drag yourselves from this lovely little spot, the local village is West Down (five minutes’ drive), which has a community-run shop for stocking up on barbecue essentials, as well as a foodie pub if you fancy a change of scenery.

Shepherd's huts near Padstow with climbing guide

Overview

Holiday makers and merriment seekers flock to Padstow—a Cornwall coastal resort destination—for its scenic harbour, fishing cottages, and Celtic festivals. Brimming with campsites and cottage rentals, Padstow offers everything from rustic to luxury accommodations for campers who enjoy activities like boating, fishing, surfing, and relaxing on beaches like Bedruthan Steps, Port Gaverne Beach, and Trevone Bay. A popular stop on the celebrated Camel Trail, Padstow is also a hub for hikers who love panoramic coastal views. Holiday accommodations and campsites with electric and water hookups promise campers of all kinds a convenient base for excursions along Padstow’s beauty.

Where to go

Camel Trail

A disused railway line transformed for hiking, Camel Trail is an 18-mile trek that offers backpackers views of North Cornwall’s coast. Hike across the sea over bridges while glimpsing local wildlife like migrating birds. The trail is renowned for its stunning scenery—a dazzling blend of seaswept beaches and flower-strewn meadows. Padstow is just one stop on the trail; hikers will find that there are many villages farther along where they can enjoy a pasty and a pint.

Port Gaverne Beach

A small hamlet on the north Cornwall coast, Port Gaverne Beach is a National Trust-owned beach renowned for its pristine, natural setting. A narrow cove features rock pools and walking areas that campers love to explore. Many believe that the beach has remained largely unchanged for several hundreds of years. Though once a popular fishing port, today Port Gaverne Beach is a serene destination for campers in search of Cornwall’s most picturesque coastal spots. With more than 40 beach campsites in the vicinity, choose a waterfront pitch close to washrooms and campsite amenities for a comfortable stay.

Carnewas at Bedruthan

Popular with tourists as well as inspired artists, Carnewas at Bedruthan offers coastal walks, unique geology, and a step into Cornwall’s history. Rock formations along the coast create spectacular cliff-top views, as sandstone “steps'' lead down to the sea. Rich with folklore, the area was believed to be tenanted by a giant named Bedruthan. It also sits along history as it stretches below Redcliffe Castle, a prehistoric promontory fort. Today, campers come to witness the dramatic coast, but due to dangerous currents, swimming is prohibited. Look for private camping parks, glamping pods, and rustic cottage rentals located within steps of the beach.

When to go

Most travellers choose to visit Padstow between April and October when weather conditions are most pleasant. During summertime, temperatures average around 19°C. Late fall, winter, and early spring involve more precipitation. January’s average winter highs range around 10°C. Even so, many of the region’s campsites and cottage rentals remain open year-round.
