The Shepherd's Shed

Enjoy all the luxuries of self-catering in Accott Manor’s unique, dog-friendly Shepherd's Shed, which enjoys spectacular views over the North Devon countryside, as well as benefiting from its own private hot tub - the perfect place to unwind and admire the stars after a day on the beach or walking the moors.

The Shepherd's Shed accommodates up to two guests and is located away from the other cottages, allowing couples to enjoy plenty of privacy.

Inside, The Shepherd’s Shed has plenty of charm and character thanks to its wood floors and curved ceiling. The kitchen area is compact but has everything you will need including a small cooker with hob, a sink, a fridge and a range of cutlery and crockery, there is even a breakfast bar with two stools. To the rear is the bedroom section, where there is a double bed and a wall-mounted TV. The whole Shed is made warm and cosy thanks to the wood burning stove, which also acts as a great way to boil the kettle!


A separate purpose built fitted bathroom featuring a loo, a sink and a shower.


Behind the shed you will find an outdoor covered wash basin and a gas BBQ.

There is also an outdoor eating area for alfresco dinners that is covered by an awning, a second table and chairs can be found on the small terrace by the entrance to The Shepherd's Shed.

Hot tub

A highlight for guests staying at The Shepherd's Shed is the private wood fired hot tub, which boasts some of the most beautiful panoramic views over the North Devon countryside. It is also the perfect place to admire the starlit skies that are all the more spectacular in North Devon as the nearby Exmoor National Park is a Dark Skies Reserve.

We had a wonderful time staying in the Shepherds Shed. Highly recommend the walk down to the woods. Beautiful scenery full of wildlife. BBQ every evening even when it rained. The early morning hot tub watching the sunrise finished our holiday off perfectly. Thanks Shawn + Kath. We can't wait to come back soon :) xxxx
