Just Us Retreats
We are a small family-run venture, consisting of just the one Shepherd’s Hut, which offers you the opportunity to escape from your busy life and hectic daily schedule by retreating to the comfort of our secluded farm in the heart of the Mid Devon countryside. You will enjoy peace and privacy as you will be the only guests at East Coombe Farm, having sole access to ‘Tom Clarke’s Hayfield’ where the Shepherd’s Hut is situated. Perfect for romantic retreats. Upon arrival, you will be treated to a Devon Cream Tea with our compliments, allowing you the opportunity to relax after your journey while enjoying the delights of a locally made scone with lashings of cream and jam, washed down with a nice cup of tea. Later, you may wish to have a BBQ or choose a dish from our menu to enjoy whilst sat in front of the fire pit, listening to the evening birdsong. Or perhaps you’d like to visit one of our local pubs or restaurants to sample their fine cuisine. That is likely to be the hardest decision you’ll need to make during your stay with us. We aim to make your stay as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.
