Close to Bantham Beach, Bigbury-on-Sea, Salcombe and Kingsbridge, this brand new fully-equipped high quality Shepherd Hut is set in a tranquil location with stunning views across to Dartmoor. The Hut is ideally situated in South Devon and offers a peaceful rural retreat with close proximity to many Devon beaches and towns. A 10 minute walk from The Hut up the lane will take you to the main road where you can catch a direct bus to Dartmouth along the stunning coast line passing through Slapton, Strete, Stoke Fleming and Blackpool Sands.
At the top of this lane also is the Church House inn – a 13th century former monks’ house with a great selection of food and wines and their renowned carvery. Other dining options nearby include The Oyster Shack, The Sloop at Bantham, The Crabshell in Kingsbridge as well as other excellent eating places in Salcombe and Dartmouth.
The Hut has a fully made-up double bed with a pocket spring mattress and duck down quilt and pillows for a comfy and cosy night. The bed just folds up against the wall to reveal a generous living space with table and benches. The toilet/shower room is plumbed in with a “proper” toilet and shower. The well-equipped kitchen unit incorporates a 2 ring hob, combination oven, microwave and grill, a small fridge and sink, [as well as crockery, cutlery, glasses, toaster, kettle etc.].
