We think that our Shepherd’s Hut is simply amazing and that our location is stunning – Put the two of them together and you get the perfect Glamping Holiday combination.
However, don’t just take our word for it, here are some recent comments left by our visitors!
Set in the heart of North Devon, in the perfect location to explore the whole area, Mandy & Andy have a superb set up at Benton View. They have thought of everything and the shepherds hut is amazing.
The hut is in a large set of fields with Lambs, Sheep, Chickens, Ducks, Ponies, Goats and Neville the cat for company – it is fantastic. They are so friendly and cute and you are able to pet them! The hut is fenced off with a short picket fence, so the animals cant get in to your “garden”, but you may find a chicken outside the door now and then.
We were able to collect our own eggs for breakfast from the chicken coop (just 20 yards from the hut) and there was a supply of beautiful home grown tomatoes. The scones, jam, cream and prosecco were a VERY welcome touch! Both Andy and Mandy are so friendly and welcoming and keen to show off their animals; their enthusiasm is to their credit. They will tell you all about the animals and are always happy to help and share their knowledge. That said, they respect your privacy and are never pushy.
The toilet, shower and fridge/freezer are a very short walk away from the Hut, but I can genuinely say that it is no problem; just put some wellies on if its raining and remember you are staying on a farm in rural Devon… not a 5 star hotel in London. That said, we’d give them 6 stars all day long.
If you want to escape the rat race, enjoy the peace and quiet and have a lovely time then stop reading and get booking!
We had a wonderful stay at Benton View. The hut has everything that you could need, including a comfy bed and lots of cosy blankets and cushions. In the morning, it was lovely to see the animals grazing and the birds singing and sheep.
Feeding the lambs and holding the chicks was a highlight. We even had eggs from the chickens for breakfast! It is in a great base for exploring the beaches, moors and Tarka trail.
Mandy and Andy are incredible hosts and made our stay extra special! We will be back soon 🙂
