Our Shepherd's huts are both unique and quirky. Handmade by local carpenters, with bespoke hand crafted beds, covered seating areas and wood burners to keep you toasty warm.

The Nook is perfect for couples or families. A peaceful and sunny corner of the field with its own path running down to the stream. The Nook has a double bed, 2 bench beds, wood burner, rustic outdoor seating area and a fire pit. The shower block with hot showers and flushing toilets is a short walk from the hut.

The Nook is the perfect place for a relaxed, chilled out holiday. It is hidden amongst the long grass in a private corner of the field near the stream. Rustic, natural, simple...it offers the best of camping, with a little luxury added to make your camping experience even better. Double bed, bench beds, log burner, fire pit and rustic outdoor covered seating area and kitchen area.

The Nook is set in a peaceful rural location, yet only a few miles from Woolacombe and Ilfracombe beaches, and close to Exmoor National Park. Perfect for couples, surfers, walkers, explorers and families.

In the Nook we provide a double bed with duvet and pillows and all linen included,

Bench beds have foam mattresses and pillows, Please bring your own sleeping bags for children.

A dry room is available for wetsuits (available in cooler months) and you also have full use of the trampolines and Games Barn which is across the fields near the farmhouse, which has a full size pool table, table tennis, basketball hoop and much more. There are electricity points and a freezer for ice blocks in the Games Barn if you should need it.

Being on the edge of the Exmoor Dark Sky Reserve we get to see the most amazing stars at night!

New for Strawfields Glamping 2020

By the end of April 2020 (hopefully earlier), all the huts will have their own hot showers and compost loos, roll down canvas awnings, hammocks, solar lights and kitchen equipment.

By the summer, Strawfields’ pop up cafe will have some covered area, pizza nights and breakfasts will be less weather dependent and so that we can offer more inside space for playing board games and relaxing with a coffee.

It had everything we needed for a camping break and our two year old couldn’t have been happier. It was just what we needed after this rubbish year, time out in the country to hit reset. The facilities were clean and tidy, Alex was very helpful and friendly. The Shepherd Hut gave us a great glamping trip, going back to basics by cooking our dinner on the fire (and marshmallows) but still giving us a comfortable bed to sleep in. Oh and of course the great wood burner in there to keep us warm. Our son loved waking up to see the animals in the morning. We will certainly be going back again!

"Great place to stay!"

I’d recommend 100%

Children loved meeting the llamas, ponies and other animals and are still talking about them! Really friendly and helpful owners and a beautiful situation. The hammock and campfire seating were lovely and its location so close to beaches is great. Unfortunately we visited in torrential rain and galeforce winds so didn't experience it at its very best but would love to come back in slightly more clement weather!

We enjoyed sitting out in front of the campfire or laying in the hammock. Sheperds hut cozy and fine for 4, children are 11 and 15, bed was a little snug for the oldest, so consider bringing a small tent if you have larger children. The solar powered fairy lights and 4 usb charging ports were surprisingly effective and we had good 4 G signal, but bring a torch as it is an electricity free site. We used the flushing toilet block too, clean and easy to use. The play barn was a little dirty (a swallow had decided to nest over the pool table) but children enjoyed being able to play pool and table tennis. Visiting the animals was also a hit. Sadly the other play equipment and the trampolines were out of bounds due to Covid, but good reminders about Covid up in public areas and hand sanitizer available. Check in a little confusing, turns out you just turn up and move in, check out easy as you just do the same in reverse. Due to Covid check out was a 9. The small road running past the site is used as a rat run, busy with fast cars, so dont try to walk or run on it. We enjoyed the surrounding areas, beaches, pubs and towns and will definitely be back.

The shepherds hut I stayed in (The Nook) was exactly what I needed, back to basics in a beautiful setting. Despite the unpredictable weather I was able to cook my food outdoors over the fire, boil water and relax in peace and quiet. The bed was comfy and very warm, no extra blankets needed, the log burner was lovely to take away the chill of the evening and the farmhouse and toilets/shower were just a short walk away. Listening to the running stream at the bottom of the hill and showering in what I would call rustic showers made me feel like I was part of nature. I was not disturbed by other hut users as there is good space between them. The only thing I will say is having 2 bolts to close the doors inside did make me question if they were secure enough when the wind was blowing a hooley and I could feel a draught coming through and one of the windows had a leak at one point during a good bout of rain but this added to the back to nature feel. Also, it would be nice to have some instructions for lighting the log burner, this may sound obvious but would be very useful for novices and maybe some suggestions of local places to buy the basics, either the local supermarket or if there are independent places to buy bread, milk and eggs to maybe support your neighbours? I had a fantastic stay, have recommended it already and hope to return again.

What a wonderful time we've just had in our little Shepherd's hut 'The Nook'. Being warm and dry but with all the joys of camping such as fires, views of fields, meandering streams and cooking outside was perfect balance. Inca entertained the children for hours as did the morning feeding of animals. Also very accessible to lots of great attractions from beaches, to steam railways. Even managed to walk to the pub, although might be worth getting some directions as not sure wading through a stream was quite the right route, albeit v entertaining. Highly recommend this wonderful campsite.

We stayed in the Nook Shepherds hut and it was wonderful, so comfortable, clean and tidy. We were made to feel very welcome and felt very looked after. The pizza night on Saturday was excellent and the tour of the animals was wonderful for the little one. The site is beautifully maintained and the facilities excellent...hot showers were most welcome! The setting is stunning and the owners Alex and Nick could not have been more helpful with our electric car needs....they even joined us for a bottle of fizz to celebrate our engagement whilst we were there. Lovely couple! We will definitely return, a finer shepherd hut stay for a really good price you will not find elsewhere!
