Luxurious bespoke shepherd’s hut set in its own private field in Devon with a wood-fired hot tub, a romantic rural retreat.
Please note that the minimum stay for this property is 2 nights
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.
Moonbow Hut is in a fantastic location for exploring the countryside and the coast with the sea just 12 miles away to the west and Dartmoor 12 miles to the east. You can set out on some great walks from the hut itself. Head across the fields to Clawmoor Woods and try the two mile loop which takes you by Claw Lake to get your bearings. Or hop in the car for the short drive to the coast of North Cornwall and tackle some of the coastal path. Explore the local market town of Holsworthy where you’ll find some great restaurants and shops to pick up supplies for the barbecue.

Incredible place! Beautiful setting halfway between the moor and the coast. A lovely little cabin which has been stocked with everything you could ever think of needing! Even in cold and rainy weather, a very enjoyable stay! Very pretty forest at the bottom of the field and lots of wildlife nearby!

What an odylic, wonderful shepherds hut Moonbow 2 is. We had the perfect three night break away in a beautiful, tranquil spot which we will definitely return to. The hut decor was beautiful and provided everything with some really lovely special touches, shower gel, robes, pooch bed and towels, lots of fire wood etc. The hot tub was magical in the evening, sat listening to the wildlife in the dark. We had a fabulous stay and managed to expore the coast and forest walks which were perfect for our dog. We highly recommend Moonbow 2 to everyone wanting a relaxing break away! Thank you for having us.

Back from another wonderful stay at moonbow escapes, our second visit and it just gets better every time. This time however we had our fury companion with us. Loads of lovely touches from a doggy wash area for the dirty paws, a nice dog bed with towels & complimentary treats to help settle in. Really could not of wanted anymore which is why we came back and will be back for many more visits. The surrounding area is absolutely stunning. A beautiful quiet little slice of paradise perfect for exploring and getting lost in an environment of huge tree and fresh water streams. Absolutely brilliant!

What an absolutely wonderful experience! This shepherds hut is everything you could want it to be and is so well thought out, right down to the soft rugs to curl up in, on the comfy chairs outside by the fire. We arrived just as it was getting dark to this tranquil spot, lit the fire with the complimentary wood and also lit the fire for the hot tub. It only took an hour and a half to heat, which was the right amount of time to sit down, listen to the owl and relax. We have loved our short stay here, there are some fantastic walks in the area and in only a couple of days we have totally recharged our batteries! We would definitely return and will be recommending Moonbow to everyone! Thank you.

We were really quite enamoured with the Moonbow location and Hut 2. Perfectly clean and new, and ALL amenities were so carefully thought about from the kitchen equipment/treats - to the assistance for the fires/BBQ and Kirami hot tub - this was a truly lovely find! It may not be as secluded as Hut 2 that sits further away from country lane, however it does offer absolute privacy and connection to the wilderness and forestry/lake that lie only a mile or so away’s walk. We were mesmerised by our weekend and would definitely return!

The whole experience, space and facilities were amazing! We were kind in the middle of nowhere but without feeling that, since there were are houses nearby. Very clean, very comfy, warm, and with so nice touches. Having a barbecue and a firepit outside were another amazing experience. Not to mention the hot tub as well! We did not have the chance to use it, but we will make sure we use it next time! Thank you!

Moonbow escapes Shepherds Hut is absolutely amazing. We had the most glorious weather. Heatwave. The hot tub was a god send as we sat in it as a cool tub. There was everything you needed in the Hut. Extremely cosy and comfortable. Was so lovely in the evening to sit outside and watch the sun go down. Everything was perfect. Would 100% recommend staying. Infact i didn't want to leave. Thank you to Sylvia and her wonderful shepherds Hut. Can't wait to return.

Honestly my partner and I had the most wonderful stay and cannot wait to go back! Right from the beginning the communication was flawless, informative and crystal clear. Our hostess Sylvia wad fantastic and accommodating from start to finish. The hut itself was absolutely stunning, with all the amenities and more that you could need! And not to forget about the view... well we were blessed with stary nights and bright sunny days and it was utterly picturesque! We had everything we needed and cleat instructions for using the wood fired hot tub (that was bliss), and a 10 minute drive from Waitrose and a small M&S in Holsworthy. Without a doubt we would absolutely recommend this to anyone!

So we’d looked for somewhere really special and unique for celebrating our Pearl Wedding Anniversary and didn’t we get lucky!!! Everything was beautiful from the start to the finish. Every detail had been thought about from location, to the hut and the amenities. We were even blessed with the most stunning weather so lived outside, bubbly in the hot tub, BBQ and lastly snuggling up in front of the fire pit. Thankyou Sylvia for helping us make some wonderful memories.

Wow where do we start. The shepherd hut is stunning, well equipped with everything you could possibly need - lovely big comfortable bed with beautiful decor. Outside you are alone with nature in what can only be described as beautiful fields and woodland best viewed from the hot tub. We saw swifts, buzzards, all manor of butterflies and our personal favourite - watching the deer grazing in the next field. If you're looking for a private peaceful retreat this is the place to go and I would recommend to family and friends. Finally if you're looking for a great place for an evening meal, lovely food, big portions and well priced The Bickford Arms is only a five minute drive away.

Honestly the most enchanting and idyllic little hide away from reality. The hut is so beautifully decorated and everything is catered for, from all your basics to the personal touches, such as binoculars to watch the wildlife, robes for the hot tub and all the little things you'd need for a lovely stay. The hot tub takes a little while to warm up but it is so worth it, great way to unwind and enjoy the views around you. There is also such a lovely walk through the fields and woods just outside your door. Our hosts were so lovely and helpful with anything and everything, our original visit had to be change due to the storm we had months ago but I'm glad we got to come in May, wild flowers in the fields, birds and wildlife roaming about, it was truly lovely! We are both feeling refreshed! Definitely be booking to come and stay again!

Absolutely amazing! If I could give more stars I would! So relaxing, we had everything we needed and more, they’ve thought of everything! The hot tub was a little tricky to get started but once it was going it was pure bliss! Will definitely return. Thanks Sylvia!

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!
