We really loved The hut and the horse box bathroom which is an awesome addition to an already great space. We really like the attention to detail in the hut and the very thoughtful way it had been furnished with everything you need for a relaxing stay. Also the location was brilliant for accessing some of the best bits of the North Devon coastline. All round great place to stay!


A stunning county of great contrasts, with two beautiful coastlines, two National Parks and five official Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. You can’t move in North Devon without finding something fun to do! The village nestles on the slopes of a diverse, beautiful valley, rich in meadow, pasture land and wooded cleaves
