This delightful little thatched cottage is set on a working farm in Devon surrounded by cider orchards and rare-breed sheep, goats and cattle. You’ll be able to enjoy the farm’s produce during your stay and explore most of its 63 acres of gardens, woodlands, re-wilded marshlands and even a beach on the Teign estuary. Inside the cottage, you’ll find a cosy hideaway, perfect for couples with many of the building’s 18th century features preserved in a recent refurbishment. Snuggle up next to the beautiful old fireplace with exposed beams overhead or enjoy the view from the charming bedroom with its sloping ceilings upstairs. This is the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle and enjoy some stunning natural surroundings. The Grade II* listed building was built as the original farmhouse and you’ll find plenty of history in and around the house. There’s an even older thatched cider press and barrel store close by and cider is still made on the farm with apples from the heritage orchard, though now using more modern techniques. Inside the cottage, you’ll find a well-equipped kitchen with a small Aga stove, all the cooking equipment you could need and Richard Bramble pottery. Complimentary freshly laid eggs are available and you can purchase more of the farm’s produce during your stay. Move through to the living room and you’ll find a dining area and a comfy sofa set in from of an open fire. Logs, matches and firelighters are provided, so you’ll be toasty whatever the weather and there’s a selection of books as well as a TV for cosy evenings in. The bedroom features a lovely wooden floor, exposed beams and a comfy double bed complete with an electric blanket. You’ll find robes and slippers waiting for you along with Cowshed toiletries in the shower room. There are some more facilities for washing and drying clothes in the adjacent stable building. Outside, you’ll find your own private seating area with a gas BBQ so you can cook outdoors on sunny days surrounded by the sights and sounds of the farm. Tucketts is a regenerative farm without the use of chemicals or fertiliser which means that you’ll be surrounded by plenty of wildlife. If you’re lucky you might spot cirl buntings hopping in and out of the hedgerows, long-eared owls in the woodland or herons and cormorants down by the estuary. There’s plenty to do in the area beyond exploring the farm. Head down to the pretty village of Shaldon just a few miles away for a day at the seaside. The village of Combeinteignhead is within walking distance and home to a historic church and several friendly pubs. For some watersports head across the estuary to Bishopsteignton or the wild landscapes of Dartmoor are just a 30 minute drive away.

  • Great Burrows Stable

    • 4
    • 2 nights min stay

    With effortless grace, Great Burrow Stable blends the deep, rich colours of a chic hotel with the peace of the Devon countryside. Inside, you’ll find plush red armchairs, ornate screens and hints of brass picked out by vintage lighting, while outside under the covered porch, nature is left to work her own magic. The dining table and chairs are where you’ll sit in the morning with a coffee, or finish the day with a glass of something while you debate who gets the swing or the bath first. Both are beautiful on a starry night, but equally atmospheric when the rain is drumming on the roof above. While the cabin has all the modern flourishes – fridge, TV, wifi – owners Mary and Justin, who left London in search of a different way of life, have created a space perfect for unhooking from the modern world and truly relaxing. You can hike straight from the door on woodland trails, hit the coast in half an hour, nip over to Dartmoor, or stroll through the woods to the local pub for dinner. If you prefer to cook, then pick up ingredients from Okehampton’s organic grocer, to add to the local milk and the eggs from the hens you’ll see wandering past the cabin. You’ll possibly spot Theo, a neighbour’s horse who lives in the field next door, while all around you the health of lightly tended land means deer, rabbits, owls and woodpeckers are all common sights. All you have to do is decide if you’ll be spotting from the deck recliner, the lounge chairs, the swing or the bath.

    Tucked into the corner of the sheep field, the sun will arc across the sky from your perspective in the wood fired hot tub. But the perfect spots to lie back and relax don’t end there. You’ve got two other options to scrub up, with an indoor power shower for a luxurious wash after exploring the nearby coast or Dartmoor National Park, just a short drive away. There’s also the wonderful tin bath outdoors, on the covered deck, complete with a bath tray to keep the prosecco handy. When you’re not lounging around (and there’s still the Adirondack loungers, mind you), you might be cooking up a storm in the BBQ area outside when the sun’s shining, or of course in the small kitchenette if it’s a cooler evening. But after dinner, all bets are off, and it’s either sipping sundowners by the firepit, or if you’ve brought young ones – toasting marshmallows to perfection. Adventure’s always just a short drive from here, and Devon’s your oyster, with plenty to do inland and across the coast. You could be down to Salcombe in under an hour, or simply Torquay in 15 minutes or so. But the real magic’s on site, especially as a couple on your own, where you can make use of the oak four poster bed and forget everyone else.
