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.

Willow Valley Holiday Park

33 units · Glamping, Motorhomes, Tents4 acres · Bude , England
This peaceful, sheltered site has a special character. The site is the ideal place to unwind with plenty of safe space, a meandering river and friendly atmosphere. It offers 4 acres with facilities, 7 acres of wilderness, shower block, level pitches, picturesque river, children’s playground and has been rated AA 4 star gold pennant.

Shepherd's huts near Paignton guide

Overview

Nestled within the enchanting landscapes of South Devon is the English seaside town of Paignton. Explore Tor Bay and the coast full of local fish near Broadsands Beach, which unveils the magic of the English Riviera. Its sandy shores and sparkling waters set the stage for seaside adventures. Or discover the rugged moorland of Dartmoor, where granite tors stand sentry over sweeping landscapes. Exmoor National Park also presents a symphony of moorlands and coastlines, where diverse habitats host an array of wildlife and beckon visitors to hike, bike, and embrace the great outdoors. Campers staying near Paignton can choose from a range of accommodation options, including family-friendly holiday parks with caravan sites and lodge rentals or tent pitches with waterfront views.

Where to go

Dartmoor National Park

Venture eastward to the sprawling expanse of Dartmoor National Park. Campers can discover dramatic tors like Haytor Quarry, admire springtime bluebells at Holwell Lawn, and cross the ancient Postbridge Clapper Bridge to take in views of meandering rivers that define this captivating landscape. Set up camp at nearby family-run holiday parks offering a variety of accommodations, from static caravans to luxury lodge rentals. Then, explore Totnes to enjoy campsites with facilities like an indoor swimming pool and free wifi.

Exmoor National Park

To the north lies Exmoor National Park, a captivating blend of moorland, coastline, and charming villages. Traverse the network of walking trails, from leisurely strolls along the coast to challenging hikes through trails like Valley of Rocks and Lynton. For some adventure, embark on a thrilling mountain biking excursion on Dunkery Beacon Circular, a 6.2-mile loop that winds through ancient woodlands and across rolling hills. Park the touring caravan at hardstanding pitches with on-site amenities like an outdoor pool and full electric hookup, or find a selection of camping parks that offer tent pitches and fully-furnished glamping sites near toilets, showers, and potable water.

Broadsands Beach

Broadsands Beach is a true coastal haven that beckons with its sandy shores against the backdrop of the English Riviera. Campers can indulge in water sports along Torbay such as kayaking or paddleboarding and explore Saltern Cove—a UNESCO Global Geopark Key Site. Stay at a nearby dog-friendly caravan park with sea views for a family holiday with a range of accommodations, from static caravans to touring pitches for motorhomes as well as classic tent pitches.
