Witherdon Wood Shepherd's Hut offers you a romantic, relaxing atmosphere in unique surroundings and escapism from everyday life. If you want peace and quiet but to be within easy reach of Dartmoor, north Devon and Cornwall, or to stay for a night and break up a long drive to Cornwall, you've come to the right place.

This hut has been constructed to a high standard and as near to the original design with the extra touch of luxury of an ensuite: no eco toilet or long walks across the fields to toilet blocks.

The shepherd's hut is set in the grounds of the gamekeeper's cottage for Witherdon manor house, so you will have your own privacy with your own decking area and the woodland at your door. A barbecue is provided, perfect for sunny days and a there is also a firepit to sit around in the evening. A parasol and deck chairs are also provided.

Enjoy your start of the day sitting on the shepherd's hut steps with a fresh coffee or tea, watching the rabbits and a variety of birds including finches, rare siskins, bullfinches, pheasants, the lesser spotted woodpecker or possibly the rare cuckoo. You will be waking up to the song birds and in the evenings listening to the owls, calls of foxes or deer rutting. You may be lucky enough to see the deer moving through the woodland or see them in the field next to you grazing in the evenings.

On arrival you can make a cup of hot chocolate, coffee or tea (a pint of milk and sugar is supplied). If you require a breakfast you can order a delicious welcome pack (no less than 48 hours before arrival please): it consists of four sausages, four rashers of bacon, Heinz beans, two of our free range eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, fresh bread, butter and condiments, fresh coffee, orange juice, apple juice and milk - all fresh local produce.

You can enjoy your meals at the breakfast bar looking out onto the open woodland with no other properties in view.

This is an amazing place also to do stargazing due to no light pollution; you will never see a sky like it. Watch the shooting stars going across the crystal clear sky while in front of the firepit with your hot chocolate or glass of wine.

We also offer experiences in a secret location with the site landowner where you can see the local beavers and walk among their living area. There are only three beaver conservation areas in Britain and we're lucky enough to be able to offer this to our visitors: it's not open to the public so will be a bonus to your visit. This is a private, casual and informative visit and an insight into the beavers' lives; as a self-funded project, a small donation will be required (£10 per person).

Being in this area means that the phone signal may be weak and no internet. The idea is to escape so there is no TV in the shepherd's hut. There is a radio with Bluetooth, books, jigsaws and games in your shepherd's hut for you to enjoy. Or just bask in front of the log burner in the evenings or on wet days hearing the rain, in a warm hut you won't want to leave.
