Shepherd's Oak

Near Exeter, Devon, England

A romantic hut under an ancient oak tree, with hot tub, panoramic countryside views and excellent east Devon location for exploring city and coast.

Description

Nestled under an ancient oak tree in a private spot at the top of a gently sloping meadow with glorious panoramic countryside views, Shepherd’s Oak offers an idyllic rural retreat. Inside, all that you could need for a comfortable stay is on-hand, including a warming wood-burner, spacious en suite shower-room, kitchen area (with electric hob, fridge and toaster), TV for cosy nights in and a comfortable double bed with plenty of storage under and above it.

Outside, there’s a large deck in front of the hut – with a hot tub, picnic table, chiminea and barbecue – the perfect place for chilling out al fresco, as well as a second deck facing to the west, with more gorgeous countryside views and enjoying stunning sunsets. Part of the meadow is enclosed, ideal for four-legged friends, and a lane leads to woodland at the bottom of a valley and further fields that you are welcome to explore – you may even meet the friendly Alpacas and their super-cute summer babies (please keep Rover on a lead around them).

Shepherd’s Oak truly offers the best of both worlds, a tranquil rural setting yet just ten minutes from the charming Cathedral City of Exeter – well worth a visit indeed. The unspoilt east Devon coast is within easy reach too, with its traditional seaside towns and dramatic Jurassic cliffs. Or why not explore the local area by bike – head to the Exe Valley or National Trust’s Killerton House.

Minimum 3 night stay with prices ranging from £49-£162 per night. Dogs welcome. No children under 10 years old.
