Seacliffe Shepherd's Hut
From £27 per person per night
Sleeps 2 people
Shepherd's hut in Devon: What a treat! With 180-degree sea views you can spend a whole heap of time at this gorgeous retreat doing nothing but relaxing. Watch the birds wheel overhead and the waves lap at the shore... Will you ever want to leave?
As the clouds scud across the sky and the surf breaks gently on the shoreline below, you'll no doubt be wondering whether anywhere in the world is nicer than this little gem of a shepherd's hut in heavenly Devon. Tucked into a corner of the owners' south-facing garden and with 180-degree views across Lyme Bay to the cliffs of the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, it's the sort of magical place you'll want to come back to again and again. Relax on a sun lounger in the private garden, grill some goodies from the local farm shop on the bbq, or chillax with a good book and a cup of tea on the enclosed patio - all with a stunning ocean backdrop.
With its pretty soft green and cream paint job, this sweet little hut has a cute and cottagey look, while its wood-panelled interior offers everything you need for a glamping getaway, from a cosy-toes wood-burner to a fully functional bathroom. It's a handy-dandy open-plan space with a nifty flip-down dining table with stools, comfy double bed and a country-style kitchen complete with cupboards, a rotisserie mini-oven (with grill and two hot plates), full-sized fridge (with ice box for when it's gin o'clock) and all the other mod cons you'll need to whip up a quick meal for two. The shower-room has hot and cold running water, a proper shower and real flushing loo - this is luxury camping, after all. There's even an electric heater for days when you need a little extra warmth, and a DAB radio to catch up with all your favourite shows. You can park on the road nearby, and if you've brought bikes or kayaks - and let's face it, this is the ideal place for an outdoorsy holiday - the owner can store them securely for you.
Out and About
Tear yourselves away from your peaceful retreat and you'll find loads of exciting things to do on your doorstep. The small seaside town of Seaton, with its mile of pebbly beach and a brand new Jurassic Visitor Centre, is just a short stroll away or, in the opposite direction along the South West Coast Path, is Beer, a charming little village where you can still buy the catch of the day from a stall on the beach. Venture just a little further to Branscombe or the Regency town of Sidmouth; to Lyme Regis with its boutique shops, great cafés and restaurants and iconic Cobb; to West Bay, where TV show Broadchurch is filmed; to the quirky market town of Bridport; or to River Cottage HQ near Axminster, where you can book a special meal or even take a cookery course and learn a new skill.
Nature lovers (and especially bird watchers) will adore the Seaton Wetlands, where there are nearly four kilometres of level trails and boardwalks through beautiful marshland and reed beds, with plenty of hides and unusual birds to spot, while energetic types can get on their bikes and cycle the 16-mile Exe Estuary Trail or else hire kayaks or hop on a paddleboard. Feeling lazy? Then simply take a boat tour instead to explore this very special stretch of coastline.
Steps up to Shepherd's Hut with open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Double bed, wood-burner, rotisserie mini oven (with grill and two hot plates), fridge (with ice-box), toaster, kettle and DAB radio and double bed. Door to shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
