Nestled on an outcrop among the treetops, with views over the town below, is Nutshell. With its own little kitchen, shower room, bedroom and dramatic balcony, it is totally self-sufficient - everything in a nutshell! The rugged Moorland landscape, with high peaks (tors), rivers and wide-open spaces of Dartmoor are just ten minutes’ walk from the front door, while Okehampton centre is just eight, the perfect balance between seclusion and convenience and a great place to snuggle, whatever the weather. Positioned with the best views in the garden is the hot tub, ready for use 24hrs a day, either for relaxing in the dappled sunlight through the tree canopy by day or star-gazing at night. You’re also able to book a masseuse to visit, for an incredibly relaxing afternoon!

An eight-minute walk along a tree-lined path down through the park takes you into Okehampton, known as the "Gateway to Dartmoor". It has excellent farm shops, pubs, restaurants, a castle, the Museum of Dartmoor Life and a cinema. The very best local walks are on your doorstep, from country lanes to woodland, meadows and riverside rambles. Bring your own bikes to journey along the impressive Granite Way cycle path two minutes away, which is also perfect for jogging. Go horse riding on the moor or visit Roadford Lake, 20 minutes away, popular for water sports, fishing, paddle boarding and kayaking, as well as sailing. The train station, just three minutes away, gives you access to the whole of Devon, catch a bus to Bude and all north and south cost beaches. Garden lovers can make a bee line for RHS Rosemoor or the Eden Project, or just stay put and enjoy the ancient gardens that surround you in Nutshell.


  • The Old Devon Boathouse

    • 1 night

    The terms "boathouse conversion" and "industrial design" may not seem like the best coupling upon first listen, but both concepts have been seamlessly married in The Old Devon Boathouse. The interior is stylish and contemporary, while the setting is quaint and maritime. Sitting right on the River Exe in the town of Topsham, you will be ideally situated to explore the region, and the county's capital Exeter is just a short drive away. Sleeping up to three guests, The Boathouse is a wonderful retreat for couples or small families with an appreciation for modern décor and charming vistas. Exposed white brick walls, luxury modern furnishings, and top-quality basalt floor tiles run through the property, lending it an industrial, yet sleek, air. Upon entering, you will be greeted by the open planned living area (and a classic Porsche in the adjoined garage). The sitting room contains a comfy couch, flat screen TV, and a cosy wood burning stove. An ultra-contemporary kitchen sits adjacent and comes well equipped. The master bedroom boasts a comfortable double bed and a beautiful ensuite. The bathroom houses a standalone bath and has black 3D Bisazza tiles on one side, with exposed white brick on the other. This juxtaposition creates the ultimate ambient space in which to soak your cares away. There is a separate single bedroom, great for a small child or third guest. Step outside The Boathouse and you will be greeted by the site of the passing boats on the River Exe. Topsham is a charming little historic town, with beautiful architecture and several bars and eateries to enjoy. You will also be perfectly positioned for exploring all that Devon has to offer. Right on the banks of the River Exe, you will have fantastic access to the Devon coast, which is replete with rocky inlets and some of the best beaches in England. The East Devon AONB is also nearby, containing over 100 square miles of protected countryside. The nearby coastal towns of Sidmouth and Exmouth are directly to the south and east respectfully. Topsham itself sits within the district of Exeter, with the city being a short 15-minute drive away. The county town of Devon, Exeter is famous for its cathedral and is a tourist hotspot with lots to see and do.
