Our stay at Fullabrook Farm was perfect! If you are looking for peace and tranquility in the English countryside. Look no further. The host, Zoe, was very helpful and quick to reply with any questions asked. This little cozy gaff is also fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Plus the complementary bottle of prosecco was a touch! Highly recommended :)

I absolutely loved my stay in the shepherds hut! The host was excellent and very attentive! The hut is clean, really spacious with everything you need for your stay (hob, oven, fridge, shadower, comfy double bed, bath robe, etc) It is honestly better than most hotels or Airbnb s.

This is a must if you are looking to get away from it all and not be more than 30 mins from the attractions of Ilfracombe. Host, Zoe, could not do more for you. Honestly, a fantastic place to take a break.

Beautifully appointed luxury shepherdess hut a cut above others. Stunning location looking down a wooded valley + away from the owners farm for complete seclusion. The stars ✨ are in the details here ; high quality bed linen + towels + sharp chopping knives with quality toiletries provided. Lovely 😊 Perfect for North coast surfing beaches or coast path walking. An ace experience.

We had a delightful stay at Fullabrook Farm Retreat! The shepherds hut was immaculately clean and a fantastic place to stay with lots of room inside. The bed was incredibly comfy and had a beautiful view to wake up to. The kitchen was fully equipped with an oven, stove, toaster and kettle and all the utensils and equipment you could need. The fire pit is a fantastic addition as is the outside dining table, perfect to eat your breakfast at. If you’re looking for a peaceful country get away with close access to everything the countryside has to offer this is the place for you. We will definitely be returning
