witherdon wood shepherds hut

Witherdon Wood Shepherd's Hut offers you a relaxing atmosphere in unique surroundings. It offers peace and quiet but to be within easy reach of Dartmoor, north devon/cornwall and the A30.


This hut has been constructed to a high standard and as near to the original design with the extra touch of luxury of an ensuite with shower, no eco toilet or long walks across the fields to toilet blocks. There is also a fully equiped kitchen and fresh bedding double bed, clean towels as well as shampoo, soap etc are supplied.
The shepherd's hut is set in the grounds of the gamekeeper's cottage for Witherdon manor house, so you will have your own privacy with your own decking area and the woodland at your door. A barbecue is provided and charcoal, perfect for sunny days and a there is also a fire pit to sit around in the evening. (wood supplied) A parasol and deckchairs are also provided.
On arrival you can make a cup of hot chocolate, coffee or tea (a pint of milk and sugar is supplied). If you require a breakfast you can order a delicious welcome pack which you cook yourself (no less than 24 hours before arrival please): it consists of sausages, bacon, Heinz beans, free range eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, fresh bread, butter and condiments, fresh coffee, orange juice, apple juice and milk - all fresh local produce. (extra £6.00 per person)
Ingredients can be bought by the owner for your evening meals, stress free and ready for you to cook ! (extra charge)
This is an amazing place also to do stargazing due to no light pollution; you will never see a sky like it. Watch the shooting stars going across the crystal clear sky while in front of the fire pit with your hot chocolate or glass of wine.
There is a lockable workshop available and an outside hose pipe. If you need your clothes washed or drying then the owner can organise it for you. (extra charge for electric)
Being in this area means that the phone signal may be weak and no internet. The idea is to escape so there is no TV in the shepherd's hut. There is a radio with Bluetooth, books and games in your shepherd's hut for you to enjoy. Or just sit in front of the log burner in the evenings or on wet days hearing the rain, in a warm hut you won't want to leave.

And finally... we live next to a private and secret wild beaver enclosure which can be visited for a small charge. you will be able to experience and view the beavers and their secret life to make your visit unique and special. (the costs help towards maintenance and expenses). The enclosure has been visited by Gordon Buchanan and shown on BBC2, country file, spring watch etc.
