  • "We have had a truly fantastic, really comfortable and relaxing break in Little Silver Pheasant."

    Every single need was catered for and every inch of the accommodation had been used to maximise its storage etc. The underfloor heating provided great heat and we didn’t need to use the log burner. We had one night of torrential rain but the roof is so well insulated, we couldn’t hear it much at all. Hot tub was lovely and warm and immaculately clean. We would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to stay locally.

  • "Lovely, well equipped hut."

    Underfloor heating keeps it really warm, didn't need to light the wood burner one during our stay. Hot tub really spacious for two and private, however privacy is at the expense of the lovely view which is hidden behind the the laurel hedge when you are in the tub. If you want the view then book one of the other huts, they all look lovely, but for privacy book Little Silver Pheasant.

    Hello, that you for your kind works and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We try to offer maximum privacy to each hut and use bushes for screening. With Little Silver Pheasant it can sometimes be a balancing act with the bushes to keep them cut at just the right height so that they offer maximum screening for privacy, but still give a view. It’s always quite difficult in the winter months as we are restricted with not being able to trim them back in the cold weather. Property Owner

    Wish the weather had been colder to allow us to have the log burner on. The hot tub was perfect and so warm. The bed was super comfortable. The views from the big are amazing.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Property Owner

  • "This is a superb destination and we highly recommended."

    We stayed for a week and loved every minute. The facilities are excellent with no shortcuts taken on the finishes - a real feather in the cap for the owners. Comfy bed, great shower, hot tub that we spent much time in and a superb little coffee machine. So much to see and do in the region as well. Do yourself a favour and book Little Silver Pheasant.

    What a wonderful review. Thank you so much! We are always thrilled to hear that people have really enjoyed their stay with us and, enjoy the orchard (and huts) as much as we do Property Owner

  • "Such a gorgeous place to stay."

    Facilities were outstanding. Hot tub well maintained. I never knew I needed a golf buggy on a holiday, but now I do. The accommodation is small, as expected in a shepherd’s hut, but due to being so well fitted, it was manageable. Views were so lovely. Quiet and relaxing, everything I wanted it to be.

    So many people love the golf buggies. They are practical for carrying luggage, but also a little bit of fun to add to your holiday. Property Owner

    Everything was perfect, from the welcome basket, to the golf buggy and the hot tub! We had such a relaxing time from the moment we got there. The hosts were so welcoming even when we arrived very late in the evening, and they left us to it to relax, but we’re always on hand if we needed anything. The accommodation was perfect, beds really comfy, lovely hot shower and towels/ robes provided. The kitchen area had everything you needed, also a Nespresso coffee machine! We had such a lovely stay & would highly recommend.

    We arrived about as stressed as we could be and left feeling fully serene. Loved the golf buggies to get around, that was a lot of fun. The shepherds hut had everything anyone could want, seriously the hosts thought of everything! Including a lovely welcome basket including eggs from their own chickens, lovely touch!

Little Silver House & Shepherds Huts

Set in North Devon’s Tarka Country surrounded by fields and overlooking the Taw Valley, Little Silver House is the perfect setting for this group of four luxury Shepherd's Huts and award winning holiday cottage Little Silver Nugget, each with its own private hot tub. A couple’s paradise for escaping the hustle and bustle of daily life. Little Silver Nugget nestles to the side of the owner’s own house, and offers the space and indulgence of a boutique holiday cottage for two, with parking outside and its own woodland hot tub a short walk away. If glamping is more your scene, choose from one of four individually styled Shepherd’s Hut where you will be afforded all the same extravagance in a sublime setting, surrounded by nature and trees. On arrival, park up and leave your car, collecting your very own private golf buggy, your transport to your hut and around this magical setting, lit by fairy-tale sensor lighting so as not to disturb the dark skies. Once inside, your hut boasts a deep, indulgent king-size bed with a luxury Eve mattress, wrapped in Egyptian cotton for blissful nights. Wake up warm and cosy at any time of year with underfloor heating. Each hut comes complete with a wood burning stove and all mod cons including Wifi and Smart TV, under-floor heating, Sonos 1 smart speaker with Alexa personal assistant, or Amazon Echos pre-programmed with area guidance, and a Nespresso machine for your early morning coffee. Finish your day under starlight whilst you sit back and gaze up at the Milkyway from your own private hot tub.

The villages of High Bickington and Umberleigh are within a 5-minute, drive each with their own pub. The windswept moorland of Exmoor makes for a perfect day’s exploring and the pretty market town of South Molton is within a 10 minute drive. Whatever time of year whether it’s a special celebration or an opportunity to experience a luxury glamping holiday with friends, a stay at either Little Silver Nugget or the Little Silver Shepherd's Huts will leave you longing to return.
