When Chris and Tracey set up home at Acorn Farm they transformed a former chicken shed into their house – they still live there now, but have added a shepherd’s hut and now a woodland camp to their motley crew of rustic handmade homes. Turner’s Wood has also been lovingly crafted by their own hands: a roof fashioned from an abandoned sail, paint brushes as (genius) draught excluders and a separate hut built from fallen trees in the woods. This being used as a kitchen and lounge, with a breakfast bar, mains water and good lighting – all for your own use.

Here you’re tucked away in a peaceful patch of oak and beech woodland – no WiFi, but phone signal if you’re desperate – with logs for the wood-burner and hot water bottles to warm you, a chest full of linens and fairy lights twinkling in the gloaming. Both the shepherd's hut and the yurt can be heated, so you'll be cosy year-round. There are lots of spaces around to spread out into, with sports equipment and board games to keep families of all ages entertained. Chris and Tracey really have thought of everything, including treats, toys and blankets for dogs, and games for kids and adults. There's even a treehouse shower halfway up an ancient oak (complete with hot mains water!) and a compost loo with sawdust for sprinkling.

Foraging for mushrooms for your campfire breakfast, getting stuck into your welcome hamper and toasting marshmallows together are all excellent reasons not to leave your little haven of quiet. Should you want to stray further afield you’re on the fringes of Dartmoor, with two great pubs and an Italian within striking distance of the farm. But why leave? Bring dogs to run free, horses for leisurely hacks (they’re welcome too) and befriend the sheep who also call your camp their home; only their soft bleating disturbs the peace. Chris is on hand and happy to drive you and your kit across the fields in his 4x4, while Spreyton village is a ten-minute walk for stocking up on supplies in the community store. He and Tracey live at the top of the hill overlooking Acorn Farm’s 45 acres, and also run an antiques shop on site selling fabulously retro collectibles like books and board games. This is a place of wild and private freedom and openness. And tiny pigs!
