Northcombe Farm Shepherds Hut

1 unit · Glamping21 acres · Beaworthy, England
Whether you’re planning on darting down to Dartmoor National Park for hikes and the like or exploring sandy beaches and surf hotspots on the Devon coast, you’re going to need somewhere cosy to stay that’s within reach of it all. That’s exactly what you get with the shepherd’s hut at Northcombe Farm, just half an hour’s drive from Dartmoor National Park, 35 minutes from Bude and 40 minutes from Widemouth beach. That’s not all – the shepherd’s hut also has stabling facilities available for one horse, and with three bridleways nearby, there are plenty of options for outings. With two private fishing lakes, you’ll be free to spend the morning fishing for roach and tench if you wish. The river Wolf also runs through the site’s boundaries. It’s likely you’re already aware of the excellent beaches along the south Devon coast, but fab views can also be caught from the ferry or boat trips that operate around the coast. Soak up all that spectacular scenery from the South West Coast Path too, along with splendid seaside towns along the clifftop route. South Devon has three areas designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as well as a World Heritage Site, a selection of national nature reserves, Sites of Special Scientific Interest, forests, woodlands and parks. They’re all mighty good places to appreciate nature at its finest. Beaworthy (10 minutes’ drive) first, perhaps, for granite tors, standing stones and ancient woodlands? Or Dartmoor’s ponies, stannary towns and peaceful villages?

Slow Glamping at Tillislow Farm

1 unit · Glamping350 acres · Okehampton, Devon, South West England
Escape to Devon and enjoy the luxury of our shepherds hut & hot tub. We're not your average campsite. Our family farm is 350 acres, here you’ll have your own private woodland during your stay. Take a dip in the wood fire hot tub, use the outdoor shower and chill with a glass of wine next to the fire pit. We’ve kitted out an old farm silo and made it a unique outdoor kitchen with all the essentials. The shepherds hut has a double bed fitted, indoor flushing loo and sink. It also has a wood burner to keep you cosy during winter. It's fully insulated and has lighting, as well as plugs so you can charge your phones. The woodland itself is all yours during your stay. it's a native copse (small woodland) which is under 1 acre. There's a stream which runs through the copse, at the entrance a small bridge connects the field to the woods. Tillislow Farm is over 350-acres which includes the main farm, woodlands, streams and ofcourse Slow Glamping. The farm has been run by the same family (Hopper's) for a century. Today it's managed by Jon’s uncle (David) and dad (Michael). Previously a dairy farm, now they rear beef cattle and grow wheat and barley. There’s plenty to discover for fellow nature lovers. If you want to venture further than the campsite, you can head down to the farm yard - please bear in mind it’s a working farm so keep an eye out for tractors, machinery and livestock. If you continue further on, you’ll end up in Tillislow wood. The ancient woodland is teaming with wildlife - if you’re lucky you might spot a deer. Follow the path (an old railway track) which runs alongside the river and you’ll come across the quarry, a little further is a bridge.This is our favourite place on the farm to walk. For the very brave, enjoy a refreshing dip in the River Carey.

Diddylake Shepherd Huts

1 unit · Glamping15 acres · Bodmin Moor, England
Two handcrafted shepherd huts in a very private, tranquil location on Bodmin Moor. The huts are off grid and have a low environmental impact. We're 3.5 miles away from the picturesque village of St Neot and 8 miles away from the historic market town of Liskeard. The North and South coasts are easily accessible offering some of the best surfing, swimming and cliff walks. The huts are cosy and homely with logburner and comfortable bed! The spring fed hot/cold shower is next to a compost loo. It’s not often you get to live in the heart of a Site of Special Scientific Interest, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or a Dark Sky Reserve, but Diddylake is in the middle of all three. The two huts set by Diddylake house (the ruin) on the rolling moors feel a world away from just about anything. One hut is your bedroom, with wood-burning stove and thick blankets keeping it cosy in any weather, and the other is your kitchen with hobs and a dining table and the BBQ and fire pit just outside. The shower and compost loo are in their own wooden hut down by the old house. The whole site has been done out by Jackson with recycled finds and local timber, giving the spaces a soft woody smell and a homely feel. There might be a chilly stroll to the loo or a dash between the huts here and there, but it all gives you a sense of living in a different age and in real wilderness. Jacksons home is a few hundred metres away, and doesn’t intrude on you at all, but it’s still close enough that you can wander up for assistance or to visit the livestock. The rest of your time you have the whole of Bodmin Moor on your doorstep and the coast within easy reach. Split your days between rambling in the hills, trips to surfing beaches or the marked hiking trails round nearby Colliford Lake. Even lounging at the huts you’ll not want for wildlife encounters. There's lots of wildlife to observe, birds include buzzards, duck, swallows, skylarks and cuckoos just to mention a few. Listen carefully and you could hear a red kite. Deer and fox are frequent visitors and keep an eye open for butterflies, dragonflies, newts and frogs. Keep your camera to hand! At night, the seclusion is brought home by spectacular starry skies.

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.
