Relax and unwind on the glorious Exmoor coast

The perfect getaway experience

Private space

Comfortable retreat

Time to relax

Amazing views

We created the hut@dogsworthy so visitors can enjoy the amazing views of the Exmoor coastline in real comfort whilst still feeling totally connected to nature. Our shepherds hut offers a private, fully equipped, home from home experience nestled in the countryside.

Our Shepherds hut has spectacular sea views from high on Exmoor! These sea views have been described by some as the best on the moor. The hut is situated on the outskirts of Lynton and Lynmouth on the North Coast of Devon. Lynton and Lynmouth is known nationally as 'little Switzerland' and from the hut you can see Wales. We're also just a few minutes from the famous South West Coastal path.

The hut was handcrafted by Danny (the owner) who built everything himself from the wheels to the curtain ties. The hut has been insulated with environmentally friendly sheep's wool and is of a traditional design. The ingeniously designed space features a very comfortable double bed (4ft wide), en-suite shower room with a flushing loo, heating, oven, hob, fridge, TV, kettle, hot and cold water, and an outdoor picnic table.

Your stay on the Exmoor coast is truly a getaway experience and therefore you may be lucky enough to have reduced mobile phone coverage and fewer interruptions to really enjoy your down-time. Parking is either on hardstanding about 75m away or most of the year you can drive closer and park on the field next to the hut.

A little history

Shepherds huts trace back to 1596, they were a familiar site on the downlands of Southern England. The most famous shepherd hut was described by Thomas Hardy the Dorset novelist in the famous book Far from the Madding Crowd. Originally Shepherd Huts were used to provided shelter from Britain's unpredictable weather for farmers during lambing season. Shepherd huts were traditionally made by local blacksmiths. By the 1950's many huts had been pushed into corners of a field as many farms had built large sheds near there farms for lambing. In recent years the popularity of Shepherd huts has increased once again, with many people seeking luxury staycations.
