Holly Water Holidays is a glamping escape in glorious Mid-Devon run by Jane and Iain Tapp. A place for peace, quiet, tranquillity, wood-fired hottubs and Shepherd’s Huts. A slice of heaven. The Shepherd huts are positioned in the sheep fields on this working family farm. They are in the most beautiful location and they provide the perfect romantic retreat and an escape from the demands of everyday life – somewhere to enjoy life’s small and simple pleasures while you recharge your batteries.
Holly Water Holidays aim to be as environmentally friendly as possible and hold the Silver award for Green Tourism but they also want you to be able to enjoy the luxury and pleasures of a truly perfect holiday. The power supply for the Shepherd huts themselves is entirely solar and propane gas and they are run on an entirely ‘off-grid’ system. With this you can be as cosy and comfortable as you could ever wish for. You have your own private kitchen facilities, lovely en-suite shower and toilet room, hand-built king size beds with lovely comfy mattresses, full heating and a beautiful wood burner for those cosy, relaxed evenings. Alternatively you might prefer to spend your evening outside enjoying a barbecue on your fire-pit or chilling in the wonderfully crafted wood-fired hot tubs. With minimal light pollution this is the perfect place for a spot of start gazing and the huts are thoughtfully provided with star books and planispheres if you'd like to try your hand at identifying those pretty twinkles!
On your arrival you will find a welcome basket with all that you need to make a ‘cuppa’ and settle right in. Extras can always be added by arrangement or you can upgrade your basket to one of the 3 larger baskets: The Cream Tea, The Big Breakfast or The Combo Basket. You will also find your lovely king sized bed ready made up and waiting for you, wood to light up your log burner, firepit or hot tub. The en-suite has towels provided and carefully sourced toiletries available for your use. During your stay you may wish to order from the farmhouse kitchen menu which is available in your information guide and includes a variety of ‘ready’ meals prepared for your convenience using the farm's own produce and local ingredients which you will just need to pop in the oven. There is also a good range of farm produced meat and eggs available to order before your trip or daily whilst you are there. They have also just launched a 'Taste of Devon' range to showcase some of the amazing local goodies available in this glorious county.
With the wonderful peace and tranquillity of the site it is hard to believe that you are only a short drive to the M5 at Tiverton and 20 minutes to the centre of the historic city of Exeter. Both the North and South coasts are within an hours drive and both Exmoor and Dartmoor are around 40 minutes away. This little haven is an easily accessible destination for your staycation with all of the beauty and the many attractions of Devon within easy reach.
