Make the most of Devon’s wild and wonderful natural beauty at Quincecote. This eccentric shepherd’s hut, tucked away in its own peaceful garden on the Hartland Peninsula, is a hotspot for exploration – whether you prefer beachy coastal views or long woodland hikes. And, of course, it’s brimming with mod cons! Oh yeah.

Plenty of Bluetooth tunes will help you unwind, while the kitchen’s range of appliances – from the sink to the gas hob – will make whipping up tasty treats a breeze. An outdoor firepit and the unmatchable atmosphere is provided via the woodburning stove, and a fold-down bed offers lots of space – plus, the large shower in the integrated bathroom should make showering also comfy!

The fabulous South West Coast Path, complete with rewarding views of coves and cliff-tops, is just 45 minutes by foot. Closer still is the hamlet of Hartland village, great for a morning coffee, lunch or dinner. Stroll 35 minutes and you’ll find Hartland Abbey, where meandering through parklands dotted with donkeys and peacocks is energy-restoring at its finest.

Set free your green-fingered side and enlist solar panels to offset your carbon footprint – all before exploring a place that has something special for every one of your senses.

Some part of me doesn't want to give this place a positive review as, quite honestly, I want to keep it all to myself! Firstly it's a great base to discover the north Devon coastal path. Hartland Quay is 10 minutes away and from there you can strain the calf muscles walking along the coast to the east. Best news of all is the Wreckers Inn that will sate the throat after a hearty walk.But I digress. The accommodation itself is spotless and very up-to-date. The owners, Annie, Vicky, Ian and Quentin are brilliant and react to any concern with unerring haste. Best of all you can bring along your pooch! Ideal for those extended walks that will inevitably wear out your dog. And best of all, after a long hike along the coast, they also have a sauna and hot tub to soak away the muscles.So perhaps you can understand why I don't want to recommend it too highly. It's terrible so don't book it! Just need to make sure I can have a weekend free later in the year to come back for a third time.

Great location, quiet with amazing views of stars on a clear night. Close to forest walks, towns and great beaches. There's a small play area for kids and also morning trips for kids to the small on-site farm, which has chickens, ducks and pigs. We've visited 2 years in a row now, well worth a visit!
