  • "The Shepherds Hut was well presented and fitted out to a high standard."

    We received a warm welcome from the owner and the additional summer house in the grounds afforded us with more space to relax. We hada very relaxing break.

The property

Resting in the countryside on the outskirts of the Devon village of Ashwater, is Frederick.

This fantastic, dog-friendly shepherd’s hut benefits from a communal, external sauna and summerhouse, breath-taking views across the countryside and a welcoming interior perfect for couples looking for a romantic, countryside getaway with their beloved canine companion.

Cross the threshold to unwind on the plush leather sofa while looking out over the countryside before rustling up a delicious meal in the kitchen, equipped with a two-ring hob, George Foreman grill, microwave and fridge, with ice-box.

Dine together at the cosy breakfast bar or choose the separate summerhouse which is furnished with more seating.

On an evening, relax in the soothing heat of the sauna or choose the pond-side patio where you can indulge in a glass of wine while admiring the sun setting behind the rolling fields.

When the sky darkens, head inside to wash off the day in the sleek shower room before settling down to sleep in the sumptuous king-size bed.

If you can tear yourself away from this tranquil, rural location venture into the heart of the village of Ashwater where you can pick up essentials at the village shop before enjoying date night at the homely Village Inn where you can sample delicious pub food in the beer garden while your canine companion lies at your feet.

There is a wealth of attractions available nearby; tour the impressive Lydford Castle and Saxon Town or traverse the ruins of the 13th-century Launceston Castle.

Or allow your dog to stretch their legs at Penhallam Manor, home to a dog-friendly trail.

On sunny days, make for the coast in Tintagel where you can lose yourself in the Arthurian legend that forms the foundation of the town or bask in the warmth of the sun on the golden sands of Widemouth or Summerleaze Beach.

Dartmoor National Park is also easily accessible by car and houses a myriad of attractions, a haven for outdoor enthusiasts.

Make unforgettable memories at Frederick.
