Wonderful stay, will be booking again
Date Of Stay: 27th 28th July 2019

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!

Bucolic bliss
Date Of Stay: July 2019

Hired the shepherd's hut for one week and was lucky enough to enjoy wall-to-wall sunshine, allowing me to make the most of the local footpaths, the stream at the bottom of the hill and, further afield, Exmoor and the whole of the north Devon coast. So much to discover, including endless picturesque villages, ancient watermills, superb coves and sandy beaches, and several NT properties, all with amazing grounds, gardens and tearooms!
The hut comfortably (luxuriously, actually) sleeps two and has its own bathroom with full-size shower and bathroom. The kitchen is better equipped than my own at home, and there are many small touches designed to make your stay not only easier but more enjoyable, including a cream tea on arrival, table and chairs outside, a fire pit, extractor fans, optional heating masses of hot water and an endless supply of pure-tasting spring water from their own borehole. In addition, there are immaculate flower beds alongside the hut and a stunning view across a small valley and up towards the reservoir. The owners keep sheep and chickens, all of which are very friendly and love being petted but are at a suitable distance from the hut so as not to disturb you. In fact, the only disturbance I experienced during my whole stay was the birdsong and the gentle flutter of butterflies' wings. The coast itself is stunning, either as you drive across the moor towards Minehead or down around the headland.
The owners could not have been more helpful or friendlier and were on hand every day to answer questions or help with any practical needs like directions, tips on places to visit and so on. I can't wait to go back for another week next year and explore all the places I had no time to visit this time round!

Absolutely fantastic stay at Keepers Watch. The peaceful and private setting along with the quality of the hut is hard to beat! The hut was comfortable and well designed. Maria really has thought of everything. Evenings by the fire pit with nothing but the sounds of nature is absolute bliss. Remote but close enough to enjoy the coast of North Devon. Thank you Maria!

Thank you Maria & Steve for such a wonderful stay in the Keepers Watch. It was completely perfect- full of little touches and immaculately clean. Loved the fire pit and the bed was super snug!

11/10 for a wonderful weekend. Location, facilities, and very warm welcome from the hosts (and the animals!) were first class. We will return for a longer visit in the warmer weather.
