    If you went out in 1986 with some Wham! on your Walkman, looking for the finest motorhome money could buy, this is what you would have come home driving. Owner John, who spent his 20s tinkering with VWs was blown away when he found this airstream and lovingly restored it, keeping the original character while adding a few modern touches and positioning it perfectly to make the most of this beautiful part of Devon. Hobs and a microwave have been added to the kitchen and DVD player to the retro feel of the dining area, sofas and leather chair in the cab. Outside there’s a private hot shower and laundry room, a fire pit, a picnic bench and a little crow’s nest deck, where you can sit with morning coffee and look out over the hills or lie back and do some spectacular stargazing. The Led Zeppelin has settled in a secluded field adjacent to John and Sallie-Ann’s home. There are livestock around, so keep an eye on the dogs if you have them, but you won’t see anybody else unless you’re out for the day. Even some of the many local hikes are fairly deserted, although the popular Tarka Trail is also nearby and makes for some great casual cycling. You could drop into Bude and other beaches along the coast for surfing and sunbathing, walk to some great pubs or explore the area’s diverse history and culture, from the underground passages of Exeter to the alpacas of Lydford Gorge. When you get back to The Led Zeppelin, crack open a bottle of something and settle in to watch and listen for bats and owls hunting in the dusk.

    Rolling green hills and winding valleys set the scene for this quaint 18th century thatch-roofed cottage in North Devon. Original features and modern amenities come together to create a welcoming holiday home. Two bedrooms make the place ideal for families staying together, but it’s also cosy enough if you wish to stay as a couple. When it’s time to relax, you have a private hot tub and a two-person copper bathtub to choose from. The open-plan living area is the first room of the abode, where you’ll encounter a soft leather sofa in front of a log-burning stove and a dining table for enjoying a spot of cream tea. If business calls during your stay, there is a handy desk where you can set up your laptop. When you are ready for dinner, a Sonos surround sound system means you can play your favourite soundtrack while cooking up a storm in the well-appointed kitchen. Accompany your meal with a drink fixed at the honesty bar. The ground floor is complete with a comfortable double bedroom and a separate bathroom with a bath and combined shower. Upstairs, you’ll find the main bedroom, where a super-king size bed promises a soundless slumber, and an ensuite bathroom, where the freestanding bath is the perfect place to unwind after a long morning hike. The home also boasts a secluded, Mediterranean-inspired garden with a seating area for sipping your beverage of choice on a balmy afternoon. Soak your cares away in the hot tub – a wooden canopy shelters it from the elements, so you can relax among the bubbles, whatever the weather. Towels, dressing gowns and plastic glasses are provided to add to the experience.
