    “Arriving late at night after a long journey from York we couldn't find the shepherd's hut a quick phone call to the owner put us in the right direction and we wasn't disappointed on arriving milk in the fridge meant we could have a much needed cuppa!”

Whiddon Down 2.9 miles.

Nestled amongst the scenic Devon countryside in Hittisleigh near Whiddon Down is this lovely, single-storey shepherds hut, Two Moors Shepherds Hut.

Beautifully positioned within a meadow setting, rich with wild flowers and birdsong. Keen walkers will be delighted to discover that the property is located right on the Two Moors Way - Devon's coast to coast route.

Benefitting from a studio-style layout with woodburning stove, dog-friendly accommodation and a wood-fired hot tub, Two Moors Shepherds Hut welcomes two guests, ideal for a couple seeking a romantic escape in this pretty corner of Devon.

After parking up and unloading your belongings (yes, this shepherds hut even has a wardrobe), rustle up a tasty dish in the neat kitchenette; venture outside and relax in your very own private outdoor space, soaking in the rural views and toasting to a wonderful break over a cold glass of fizz, as your pooch plays safely.

Spend your evening alfresco, sharing stories or playing games and take a dip in the hot tub, the perfect way to soothe your tired legs after a long day of sightseeing!

When the stars appear overhead, escape back inside to enjoy a blissful shower and transform the dining space into a plush double bed, ready to curl up and doze off into a relaxing slumber.
