  • Turners Woodland Suite

    • 4
    • 2 nights min stay

    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!

  • The Led Zeppelin

    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.
