Moonbow Escapes is owned and managed by Sylvia Dart.
Set in its own private field in Devon, this luxury shepherd’s hut makes for a peaceful and relaxing rural retreat for two. Featuring a Scandinavian wood-fired hot tub and a fire pit this is a great spot to enjoy the outdoors and reconnect with nature without sacrificing any of those home comforts.
The interior has been thoughtfully designed and beautifully finished with oak floors and a king-size bed. The luxurious bed is in a cosy nook with a lambswool duvet, natural cotton bedding and a soft woollen throw to keep you toasty whatever the weather outside. There’s also a smart TV at the foot of the bed. You can lie back in bed and enjoy the stars through the windows as the lack of light pollution means they put on quite a show on clear nights.
The shepherd’s hut is slightly larger than most, allowing for a spacious living area and a handcrafted kitchen. There are comfy chairs and a table under the window so you can enjoy the view while tucking into breakfast. There’s also a wood-burning stove in the corner, keeping you warm. Sliding oak doors lead through to the bathroom, complete with a shower, plenty of hot water and fluffy towels and bathrobes.
Outside, you’ll find a wood-fired Scandinavian Karami hot tub, perfectly positioned so you can sit back and relax while enjoying the view. There are also some loungers, a fire pit and outdoor furniture so you can enjoy your meals outside. If you need some shelter from the weather, there’s a covered area which also includes a sink, wood-burning stove and a barbecue. There’s some extra storage out here too, ideal for your outdoor gear.

My husband and I booked the Shepherds Hut for a much needed break from work and general R&R. And this place did not disappoint! As soon as we entered the hut we both felt immediately relaxed. The hut itself is surprisingly big inside and has all the amenities you need for a cosy stay away. Sylvia was available throughout the stay to help with any questions we had. The weather wasn’t on our side, however we used the time to visit some lovely pubs and had a lovely drive along the coast. We also managed to sit under the outside shelter on an evening with the log burner on and when the stars were out it was truly spectacular! We’ll definitely be booking again, looking forward to trying the hot tub next time! ????. I’ve attached a couple of pics so you can see it from a customer perspective. Thanks again for having us!
