Shepherd's Hut in Devon: So cute it almost hurts, meet our slice of heaven. No noise, no stress, just sit back and count the constellations in the clear night sky. All together now: 'When you wish upon a star . . .'
Cherry Blossom has the sort of upmarket glamping style that makes the jaw drop. Once you've picked it up, you will sigh with contentment. You might even, should you be inclined, do a little purr. Or perhaps just a secret smile. In any case, we reckon you'll fall in love with it. Shall we count the ways? Well, for a start, there's the location. Tucked into a peaceful meadow bordered by wildflower hedges and a little stream, this luxury hand-crafted shepherd's hut is wonderfully peaceful, its only neighbour Apple Blossom, both positioned for secluded privacy. On your patio area you may wish to enjoy a quiet cuppa or a glass of wine, toast a marshmallow or two or perfect your barbecuing skills. Or perhaps just sit back and relax in the bubbling hot tub, admiring the lack of light pollution as the sun sets over another relaxing day. The surprisingly spacious interior is to die for, cosy and comfy, with gorgeous solid oak fittings cleverly kitting out the space and finishing touches that make it stand out from the crowd. The bed, with deep mattress and fresh cotton linens, folds up (easily) into the wall to create room for the dining table, and the kitchen has a Belfast sink, two-ring hob and even a full-sized fridge. There are lovely touches like wrought iron window fittings, chic curtains and blinds and fab lighting, and did we mention the useful stuff like storage space and plug sockets? The wood burner (logs included!) throws out loads of heat so winter - or, ahem, a cool English summer evening - is roasty toasty, and there is, naturally, an en suite shower-room with running hot and cold water. You see, it's all been very carefully thought through so you can just switch off, settle down and unwind completely.
Out and About
Rural retreat or shop-tastic day out? The choice is yours. Tree-lined rivers, pretty villages, Dartmoor's rugged beauty… they are all within striking distance. Or take a trip to the towns of Totnes or Dartmouth, or the city of Exeter, where retail therapy awaits. You might want to explore the long, sandy beaches of the South Hams, but if you're tired out, the pub down the road is only a stroll away and does top-notch food. Would it be too much to say that this location has it all? We don't think so.
Steps up to open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas with double bed, wood-burner, TV/DVD player, 2 ring hob, fridge, toaster and kettle. Door to Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
