  • "Little Silver House is a gorgeous place and a brilliant location for a romantic holiday away."

    The Silver Owl hut was immaculately clean when we arrived, and the little hamper with some supplies including bread, milk, eggs, coffee and even a bottle of wine was a lovely touch. Riding the golf buggy to and from the hut was a fun quirk and relaxing in the hot tub in the evening was bliss. We found the staff extremely friendly while also completely unobtrusive, they leave you alone and let you enjoy your holiday in peace. Guidelines for what to do during our stay and on departure were crystal clear and we never felt lost. Overall a brilliant experience and we would definitely recommend it. Top marks!

    Mr AndrewsNov 2021

  • "We really enjoyed the whole of our stay, they made you feel comfortable from the very start, the addition of a golf kart to and from your hut was fantastic especially for moving luggage around, the pla e was very clean and tidy and had such a relaxing vibe to it, hot tub was perfect and being able to see the stars was great, also they gift you a basket filled with homemade bread, bottle of wine, crisps, tea & coffee, eggs from their chickens and milk and butter in the fridge so you really don't need to worry."

    I would highly recommend anyone to stay here and we are already thinking of a future trip back to the little silver owl

  • "We stayed at the little silver House (Owl) for our mini-moon at the beginning of September."

    From the early communication, instructions to finding the place, to being met on our arrival was perfect. The golf buggy is a great touch, and necessity given the distance and terrain to the cabins. The welcome gift basket we found in the cabin with home made produce was a beautiful touch. The cabin it self was amazing. So much thought had been put in to the layout. The outside area was lovely. Private, without restricting us from the beautiful views. The hot tub was also well maintained during our stay. An ideal location to stay, relax or explore the local areas. We would definitely recommend to others. Thank you for an amazing, relaxing stay.

    Mrs Marfell-jonesAug 2021

  • "We had a short break at Little Silver Owl this June, the pictures did not do the location or the Shepherds Hut justice."

    The views were amazing and the facilities absolutely perfect. The welcome hamper with home produce was a beautiful touch that we were not expecting but was very well received. This is the perfect place for a peaceful and romantic stay, we can not recommend it enough and would definitely book to stay again.

  • "We had the best time at Little Silver Owl."

    The views are more than we could have ever expected, it’s just a stunning location. The owners are so lovely, knowing they are nearby but also feeling as if it was just the two of us was perfect. We genuinely felt as if we were on our honeymoon! The welcome hamper is such a lovely extra, no need to take milk/butter or any essentials as they are all provided, the small details are just fabulous. We also loved having the golf buggy, a super fun extra! During the day we visited Croyde and Sauton Sands, which was absolutely stunning and a perfect way to spend the day (particularly Croyde Bay). We then came back every night to our hot tub under the stars, it was truly the perfect retreat. I couldn’t recommend this enough!

  • "What a fantastic experience!"

    Beautiful stylish shepherds hut with every imaginable amenity. Amazing welcome basket with homemade items which was a brilliant bonus. Stunning surroundings. Just couldn’t fault it. Lovely hot hut with privacy just fab!

    Mrs BakerMay 2021

  • "Amazing trip staying in the Little Silver Owl."

    The owners really do manage to bring the luxury of a hotel room to the natural and outdoorsy experience of glamping. The views from the shepherd's hut and jacuzzi were breathtaking. The little touches from the golf cart to the welcome hamper with home made biscuits all added to what was a fabulous trip.
