Shepherd’s Huts

Cosy accommodation on the edge of the re-wilding area

Why not come and stay with us in one of our beautiful Shepherds huts, or camp in in our meadow. Situated on the edge of our re-wilding area, you will have the chance to glimpse at our ‘re-wilding helpers’ such as water buffalo, wild pigs and Exmoor ponies with a beautiful backdrop of Dartmoor.

Take part in our specialist activities such as guided tours of the re-wilding area, animal encounters, an evening beaver watching or a discussion evening with our ecologists.  Additionally, spend the day relaxing enjoying the view, or enjoy one of the many other activities the area has to offer.

In the evening, relax around the camp fire, or in our social hub where you can meet like-minded people for a chat and a glass of your favourite tipple.

Our customised shepherd huts provide a beautiful and cosy base for your stay with us. Each shepherd hut contains a double bed (bedding provided), a cosy wood burner and a separate basic camp kitchen with a gas burner, pans, crockery, cutlery, mugs and glasses.

Shepherd huts are available from mid-May to mid-October. We offer 3 holiday options:

  • Week long (Friday to Friday) 
  • Mid-week stay (Wednesday to Friday) 
  • Weekend stay (Friday to Sunday or Monday) 

Prices include a complimentary animal encounters activity

Check in on either a Friday or a Wednesday. Check in is after 3pm and check out is 10am. If you are going to be arriving really late please inform us and please try and arrive before dark as to not disturb other guests. We regret we cannot accept dogs or children under 10.
