Great location100% of recent guests gave this home’s location a 5-star rating.

You’ll love my place for its atmosphere, uniqueness and peaceful idilic location with stunning views looking over Dartmoor.

It has an air of creativity and love, with a cosy natural feel.
Stunning views of Dartmoor, forrest and valley with river at the bottom stretch out. Dartmoor is a glorious play ground with wild ponies, bouldering for climbers with rivers and beaches nearby for swimming. Dotted around Neolithic stone circles. Ashburton is a bustling town, famous for antiques and fine foods.

This is a little gem of a getaway spot. The views from the shepards hut and hot tub were better than I could have imagined and the hut itself was everything we needed. The location is secluded enough to feel off-grid but close enough to Torquay, Plymouth and even Newquay. Sure i…
