Shepherd Huts

A woodland wonder and total escapism. Discover Lympstone Manor in a unique setting for an exceptional experience.

Set amongst the woodland and wildflowers, our shepherd huts are nestled into the landscape for isolated living with elegant luxury.

Each of the five huts will be unique and luxurious, in true Lympstone Manor style. While our guestrooms in the Manor are named after the birds of the estuary, we have chosen to name the huts after our resident woodland creatures and their habitats: Otter Holt, Hare’s Rest, Hedgehog Row, Beehive, and Fox Den. Each hut will feature hand-painted artwork inspired by their namesake, specially commissioned by local artist Rachel Toll.

Two of the huts will be positioned around a newly formed pond at the southernmost point of land at Lympstone with views stretching across the vines. The remaining three huts each overlook either the Exe Estuary or the hotel’s own vineyard.

Any shepherd would be more than comfortable in our huts which are truly luxurious. Each cabin comprises of a king-size bed, open plan kitchen and lounge area with additional sleeping areas that have been engineered to disappear into the fabric of the hut so that each cabin will sleep between 4-5 guests, both adults and children. The huts are an intimate space, with privacy screens to allow a semi partition between living and sleeping.

Each hut has a private decking area with outside seating to enable you to immerse yourselves in the beauty of this tranquil spot. Otter Holt, Hare’s Rest and Hedgehog Row have outdoor bathtubs, while Beehive and Fox Den both have roll-top baths indoors and wood-fired hot tubs outside.

Breakfast hampers will be delivered each morning which include all the continental delights. Lunch and dinner are available at the bar or by reservation in the restaurant.
