We have a shepherd's hut situated in a field beside a stream and three lovely lakes in a beautiful Devon valley on our organic beef and sheep farm.
Each unit is fully equipped with cooking facilities and has a cosy double bed with all bedding provided and wood burning stoves using coppiced wood from the trees on the farm. Toilet/shower blocks are within easy reach of the accommodation (flushing toilets and hot showers).
There is parking on site for several cars and coarse fishing on the adjacent lakes.
We are perfectly situated for peace and tranquility, yet a ten-minute drive in any direction from the market town of Newton Abbot, the port of Teignmouth or Torbay, the English Riviera.
We are two miles from beaches with watersports and fishing, and the dog-friendly beach at the Ness, Shaldon down the smugglers' tunnel. Within 15 minutes' walk is our nearest pub, serving real ales and excellent food, and we are a five-minute drive from another four country pubs and restaurants. Within 30 minutes' drive you can be in the wilds of Dartmoor.
There are many lanes and tracks for walking or mountain biking in and around the Rocombe valley.
Other attractions within driving distance include Paignton Zoo, Kents Cavern, Babbacombe Model Village, Woodlands near Dartmouth, Crealy Park near Exeter, Haldon Forest (Go Ape!), Shaldon Zoo, Brixham Fish Market.
We are a two-hour drive from The Eden Project in Cornwall.
