A charming shepherd's hut, located in East Worlington, Devon, close to Witheridge.

Orchard Retreat is an ideal romantic escape for couples, as it is both dog-friendly and located in a beautiful, secluded orchard.

There is off-street parking available at the entrance to the orchard, a private enclosed patio area with dining table and a hot tub from which to enjoy the scenery and sunsets, and access to an additional field ideal for letting your canine companion run around.

The interior features a charming open floor plan with a well-equipped kitchen, ideal for preparing cooked meals for two, ready to enjoy at the dining table while sharing a bottle of wine.

After dinner, retire to the summerhouse and unwind on the leather couches while playing a game or listening to music.

As the evening draws on, why not wander over to the hot tub to relax and unwind whilst gazing at the starts.

As your eyes grow heavy, retreat to the sumptuous double bed to catch your rest, watch your favourite shows on the wall-mounted Smart TV or curl up with a good book.

In the morning, prepare for the day ahead in the well-appointed shower room.

The Mitre Inn, Mangetout Supper Club, and La Petite Bouchée are all great neighbourhood restaurants.

You you can also find two convenience stores in Witheridge, plus a post office.

Why not visit the ancient village of Lapford where you can relax and enjoy a meal in the 16th century pub The Old Malt Scoop Inn. You should then proceed to Chulmleigh, where you can enjoy a round of golf at the world-class Chulmleigh Golf Course or afternoon tea on the veranda with views overlooking the stunning golf course.

Or try a romantic dinner at The Red Lion or The Old Dairy - Tearoom and Deli with the one you love.

Keep going to South Molton, where you can shop at the South Molton Pannier Market for handmade goods, fish for your dinner at Hacche Moor Fishery, or spend the day outdoors with Rock and Rapid Adventures, where you can try your hand at climbing, archery, abseiling, and watersports.

In Tiverton, budding historians will find relics to uncover in the numerous halls of Tiverton Castle, as well as the magnificent, gothic Knightshayes Court surrounded by formal gardens and woods; soak in local history at Tiverton Museum Of Mid Devon Life before dining at one of the many cafes.

The old city of Exeter is a must see during your trip, with attractions such as the Royal Albert Memorial Museum and Art Gallery, a tour of the interesting underground passages, or marvel at the 11th century Exeter Castle, where concerts and events are frequently organised in its courtyard.
