Witherdon Wood Shepherd's Hut: Your private space

General

  • Adults-only shepherd's hut 25 mins' drive from Dartmoor National Park
  • Supplies for welcome breakfast and hot drinks provided
  • Ensuite shower room; outside deck with hot tub, barbecue and firepit

If you go down to the woods today… make it Witherdon Wood Shepherd's Hut, in Beaworthy, Devon, for a peaceful grownups-only stay in impressive surroundings (the grounds of the gamekeeper's cottage for Witherdon manor house, to be precise).

The owners have pulled out all the stops to make your stay a comfortable one – you’ll arrive to a collection of fresh local ingredients (all the bits for a full English breakfast are provided, with fresh local produce, fresh coffee, fresh juice and cereal) so you can whip up a cuppa in no time, and brekkie the next morning too. Perch at the breakfast bar while you tuck in for a fine way to appreciate your peaceful surroundings… while you do, keep an eye out for deer moving through the woodland or grazing in the field next to you.

Days are easily spent pottering around the site – the well-equipped hut has a Bluetooth radio, books and games to pass the hours, and the log burner will keep you toasty when the weather isn’t up to much. Outside, there's a covered decking area with seating, a barbecue, a firepit and a hot tub for alfresco evenings (this area is a stargazing hotspot, so be on the lookout for shooting stars).

The hut comes with the luxury of an ensuite shower room too, with handmade eco-friendly toiletries (in keeping with the site's general eco-conscious vibe that favours things like solar power and plastic-free tea bags).

If you can tear yourself away, spend your days covering the local walking and cycling paths, or rent canoes and kayaks for adventures on Roadford Lake (10 minutes away), which is also a fine choice for fishing.

Directions

Local attractions

As this is an adults-only place, why not indulge in some over-18s days out? There are a few vineyards dotted around nearby for tours and tastings – Carey Valley Wines (10 minutes' drive), Alder Vineyard (20 minutes) and Torview Winery & Vineyard (25 minutes) are all worth a look. There are also cider producers to visit if you’re more apples than grapes – try Countryman Cider (half an hour), The Cider Vat (35 minutes) and Sam’s Cider (40 minutes).

For scenic trails and wildlife spotting, Dartmoor National Park (25 minutes) can be explored in a number of ways – how about horse riding on the open moor or climbing the granite tors? Or visit the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (35 minutes), where you can take the Tamar Valley Line train or Tamar Passenger Ferry to see the sights.

Fancy a bit of sand under your feet instead (and maybe a paddle in the sea)? Take advantage of your proximity to Cornwall and cross the border for some of the county’s famous beaches. Bude (40 minutes) is a good choice, for its sandy beaches and surfing spots.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (14.7 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (18.0 miles)
