We had a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing stay. We received a warm welcome from Maria when we arrived and asked a few questions about the local area and possible walks, which we recommend doing as the countryside is beautiful and very quiet!
The hut itself is very well designed to make the most of the space and we made full use of the fire pit.
An amazing place to get away from it all and the best review I can give is that we have booked to come again!
What can I say, my boyfriend and I had such a lovely stay at Keepers Watch. We couldn’t have asked for anything more, the Shepard’s hut has everything you could want and more. It was pure tranquility in the beautiful countryside.
We had been recommended to go to this 'haven' by a work colleague. What a great place. Both myself and my wife needed somewhere to switch off during this very hard Covid year. Keepers watch was exactly what was needed. It has fabulous views of the country around it. It's very well catered for with everything that you need to relax. We had several nights where we could get outside and just relax and watch the stars and have an open fire. Equally well positioned to enjoy countless other activities including walking. One final point - the chips at the nearest pub - Black Venus - are to die for!! Thanks so much - we will revisit!!!
This was truly a gem of a place to stay, from the moment we arrived and were warmly welcomed by Maria, to the location which had wonderful views and lovely walks through the Ancient Woodland. The peace and quiet was just what we needed, we stayed in Keepers watch to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary, Maria & Steve had kindly left us a little something which was very thoughtful & much appreciated. I could write so much more on how special this place is but maybe you should go & find out for yourself. Thank you both very much for making our Anniversary very special.
What can I say, this was magical, I think I reverted back to my childhood playing house in this delightful shepherds hut. Totally private, comfortable, cosy, and you were not left needing anything which was not provided in the hut. I was surprised to find the visitors book had entries from 2017, I honestly thought we were the first to arrive and stay, it just shows the love and attention provided from Maria and Steve to their lettings. The little surprise was a delight to find as well as the fresh wild flowers but the greeting in Welsh just topped it all 🙂 So welcomed my first week of release from 5 mile radius in Wales since the last 15 weeks post Covid19 isolation rules but also welcomed the privacy, seclusion and also the focus on sanitation knowing that this was as a priority. Fantastic B roads too for motorbike riding 🙂 Thank you so much for the stay.
We had a wonderful weekend away in the shepherd's hut. It was a wet and cold November weekend. But the hut kept us warm and dry. It had everything we needed and much more. It is very well kitted out and beautifully decorated. We especially loved the fold out double bed!
All in all a perfect winter get away. We will have to come back in summer as well to enjoy it in the sun! Thanks Maria!
We had a lovely stay in the cosy Shepherds hut exactly what we needed. its in a great location It's well equipped with all you need to make your stay comfortable. We used the fire pit every night for BBQ and after the food was done just to enjoy the fire with a glass of wine with the river sounding in the background. The location is peaceful and quiet. Only 30min drive away you've got Croyde or Woolacombe beach to go surfing or go for a nice walk and a similar distance to some great places in exmoor and the North Devon coast.
We will be going back for more exploring and relaxing.
Maria and Steve are great hosts and made us feel at home. What a great place!
We stayed at Keepers Watch to celebrate our birthdays away from the hustle and bustle of city life. We could not have chosen anywhere better!
The hut is delightful, everything is set out perfectly and is presented beautifully with gorgeous fabrics and excellent finishing touches.
Maria has obviously put so much thought and care into the Watch, there are lots of lovely extras and gestures which we won't list here - you need to go and find out for yourself!
The location is good for exploring around North Devon, and the Somerset border, or you could just stay at Rye Park and enjoy the river and woods.
We could say so much more but words alone just don't justify how wonderful Keepers Watch and Rye Park are.
After hunting the web for a while I was so relieved to find exactly what I was looking for in Keepers Watch at Rye House, exmoor.
A beautifully made hut equipped with everything you could possibly need from afternoon tea on arrival, marshmallows for the fire pit along with the essentials like a good working clean shower, perfect for a relaxing few days away.
As it says in the description the hut is set in the most peaceful location absolutely perfect.
Thankyou Maria, will definitely be staying again, and recommended to all my friends!
We loved our stay at Keepers Watch and have planned to come back next year! We were well looked after, the facilities were luxurious and surroundings beautiful. It's close enough to the North Devon coastline to visit some of the beautiful towns and beaches. It did rain the entire time we were there but it was so cosy in the Shepherds Hut with beautiful countryside just outside of the windows. I've recommended it to all my friends and will definitely be coming back!
