Dream Oasis

2 units · Glamping6 acres · Totnes, England
Welcome to The Oystercatcher at Mill Cross Retreats- the little place in a big world where we invite you to step off, relax and completely recharge your batteries. Perfect for 2 people (babes in arms up to the age of 1 welcome) -a quiet and relaxed "get away from it all” eco-friendly village break. Set in 6 acres of space and a stone's throw to an award winning pub. We are close to Dartington, Totnes, Dartmoor and the sea. We have tried to think of everything to make life easy for you- including a very well equipped kitchen, eco-friendly toiletries, books to read, magazines and guide books so all you need to do is pack your bags. We really care about the environment and hope you do too. We commit to local and organic wherever possible, only use environmentally friendly cleaning products and toiletries. We look after our 6 acres with non invasive methods and grow organically. You will find everything you need here, including a lovely, light open plan living area with dining table, well equipped kitchen, comfy sofa, wood burning stove (generous amount of wood and kindling provided), with lovely views over the surrounding fields through the French windows. There is a small covered terrace outside with table and chairs to sit and enjoy your food, a coffee or something a little stronger...... we can also lend you a firepit or bucket BBQ and can sell you logs or local charcoal. You will look out over your own garden area and onto the fields beyond. The bathroom has a large shower and freestanding bath. The large bedroom has a very comfy double bed with organic linen, duck and goose down pillows and a Devon wool duvet. Hairdryer, towels and eco friendly toiletries are provided. A warm welcome with locally produced and organic food and drink awaits you. We supply organic milk (or oat milk), organic coffees, teas, homemade biscotti, Luscombe Elderflower, organic hot chocolate, olive oil, herbs and salt. We offer a range of bookable extras such as homemade organic sourdough, organic cream teas, chilled organic Prosecco and locally sourced breakfast packs. We provide lots of info about where to shop and eat locally and hope you will join us in supporting our local, independent traders which has a positive impact on the local economy. We are just a few minutes walk from one of the oldest and best pubs in Devon - The Church House Inn, Rattery, with excellent local food and drink. We’re happy to accept babies under 1. Regrettably, the property is not suitable for older children. You might choose to join us for a woodfired cookery class or crafting course at The Bakehouse at Mill Cross Retreats. You can see this information on our website. We provide a selection of maps and local guide books and Devon Life magazines for you to peruse to see what’s on. We’re also on hand to give advice, tips on where to go and what to do. We have a very comprehensive online guidebook linked to our website which we’ll share with you when your booking is confirmed. The cottage has its own private woodfired hot tub. Unlike electric hot tubs, this uses fresh water and no chemicals-so is a real treat under the stars or on a lazy afternoon. We will light it and bring it up to temperature for you. This requires 24 hours notice and is available most of the time provided we are here! The hot tub is £50 for two consecutive days' uses, payable in cash on arrival. It can only be used for two consecutive days before it needs to be drained and cleaned. The hot tub is 1.8m diameter and has a fibreglass liner, steps up and in integral woodburner-a really unique experience. If you book ahead of your visit, you can change your mind at zero cost as long as we have 12 hours notice. Please check the weather immediately prior to your stay and let us know if you’d like to go ahead or not! 1 (occasionally 2) well behaved small/medium dog/s (preferably crate trained) welcome strictly by prior arrangement at an additional charge of £45 (£50 for two) per stay. Dogs are not allowed on the sofa or in the bedroom. Please do not add your dog/s to your booking-contact Emma please as we don’t take bookings with dogs until you have seen and agreed to our Ts and Cs. Due to our lovely soft furnishings, we cannot take large/shaggy dogs. Please note, any damage caused by your dog will be charged to you. We can provide safe bike storage if you would like to take advantage of the cycle routes. We keep free-range chickens, non free-range goats and have a Working Cocker spaniel, Juno and a very friendly barn cat, Mrs Pickles. You are welcome to explore our space and sit in our meadow and enjoy the views with a glass of wine. We also have the very lovely Jenny Wren, a unique and romantic shepherds hut with a woodland hot tub. Each of our lovely properties is totally private and not overlooked.

Slow Glamping at Tillislow Farm

1 unit · Glamping350 acres · Okehampton, Devon, South West England
Escape to Devon and enjoy the luxury of our shepherds hut & hot tub. We're not your average campsite. Our family farm is 350 acres, here you’ll have your own private woodland during your stay. Take a dip in the wood fire hot tub, use the outdoor shower and chill with a glass of wine next to the fire pit. We’ve kitted out an old farm silo and made it a unique outdoor kitchen with all the essentials. The shepherds hut has a double bed fitted, indoor flushing loo and sink. It also has a wood burner to keep you cosy during winter. It's fully insulated and has lighting, as well as plugs so you can charge your phones. The woodland itself is all yours during your stay. it's a native copse (small woodland) which is under 1 acre. There's a stream which runs through the copse, at the entrance a small bridge connects the field to the woods. Tillislow Farm is over 350-acres which includes the main farm, woodlands, streams and ofcourse Slow Glamping. The farm has been run by the same family (Hopper's) for a century. Today it's managed by Jon’s uncle (David) and dad (Michael). Previously a dairy farm, now they rear beef cattle and grow wheat and barley. There’s plenty to discover for fellow nature lovers. If you want to venture further than the campsite, you can head down to the farm yard - please bear in mind it’s a working farm so keep an eye out for tractors, machinery and livestock. If you continue further on, you’ll end up in Tillislow wood. The ancient woodland is teaming with wildlife - if you’re lucky you might spot a deer. Follow the path (an old railway track) which runs alongside the river and you’ll come across the quarry, a little further is a bridge.This is our favourite place on the farm to walk. For the very brave, enjoy a refreshing dip in the River Carey.

Shepherds Hut Hideaway in Devon!

2 units · Glamping4 acres · Bude, England
Welcome to Livit Hideaway- a hidden gem in the Devon countryside. Stay in one of our two beautiful hand crafted Shepherds huts tucked away in our peaceful small holding and hobby vineyard. Surrounded by nature you can truly unwind in the wood fired hot tub as you admire the far reaching views. Livit Hideaway is a smallholding of around 3.75 acres where we grow 200 vines for wine production, we make cider from our apples and grow our own vegetables and fruit produce. It's the ideal place to relax and really switch off. We are perfectly placed half way between Bideford and Bude, if you love the beach, then just 25 minutes in either direction you will find some of the best in the South West. We recently acquired this already established site where the previous owners ran a thriving holiday business and shared their wonderful space with guests over the last 4 years. They have passed the baton to us and we are thrilled to take over and continue to create unique new experiences for guests who visit. We run another glamping business close by called Livit Adventures- it's a family friendly site with lots of activities on offer during the summer season. We purchased this new site so we could establish a family home for ourselves as well as continue our passion for the holiday accommodation business. We hope you love it as much as we do. Here at Livit Hideaway we have two hand crafted Shepherds huts. Each hut has its own unique setting within our smallholding. The huts have wood fired hot tubs, mains electric and mains water supply, a lovely shower room with loo, washbasin and shower. We provide all bedding and towels so you don't have to bring your own. There is a cosy sitting/dining area inside by the fully equipped kitchen which includes a butler sink, oven, hob, fridge, kettle, toaster, glasses, crockery and cutlery. Each outside area includes a fire pit with a bbq grill and seating for dining and relaxing. Everything you really need for you country escape.

Luxury shepherd's huts in Bellever Forest guide

Overview

Tree-lined trails lie along the banks of the East Dart River in Bellever Forest at the centre of Dartmoor National Park. Enjoy short walks through the woodlands, stop for a picnic by the riverside, then climb up to Bellever Tor for magnificent views across the moors. Seasoned hikers can set out along the 11-mile Lich Way from Bellever, and wildlife lovers will be in their element—the forest is a popular grazing spot for the park’s free-roaming herds of Dartmoor ponies. Camping is not permitted within the forest, but campers will find plenty of options throughout the national park.

When to go

Summer, especially July and August, is peak season in Dartmoor National Park and popular spots such as Bellever Forest can get crowded—get there early to snag a picnic bench. Forest walks are enjoyable at any time of year, but autumn is particularly beautiful, with its rainbow of fall foliage. Dartmoor weather is notoriously changeable, so bring your raincoat and something warm, even in summer.

Know before you go

  • Bellever Forest is located in Dartmoor National Park, a 5-minute drive south of Postbridge. There are pay and display car parks (payment by card only) at Bellever village, by the entrance to the forest, and at Postbridge village, a 1-mile walk. 
  • Both car parks have restrooms, but there are no other facilities, so bring everything you need with you. The closest village is Postbridge, home to a pub and a few small shops. 
  • Some walking trails at Bellever Forest are accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs.
  • Dartmoor has free-roaming ponies, sheep, and cattle, and these animals have right of way on moorland roads. There is a strict speed limit of 40 mph throughout. It is a fineable offence to feed any of the animals in the park, and visitors are also advised to keep a distance for their own safety—these are feral animals and may kick or bite.
