This charming, cosy cabin for two is the ideal spot for a romantic retreat in the picturesque South Devon countryside. Wake up and enjoy a morning coffee whilst gazing out at the far-reaching views across the Erme estuary valley, before venturing out for a walk in the marvellous surrounding scenery. After a day exploring the area, sink into your own private hot tub for a luxurious soak under the stars.

Longdown has a fabulous, unique hilltop position, offering up amazing views which can be enjoyed through the huge floor-to-ceiling windows. The elevated spot also ensures that you have unrivalled views of the stars at night, which are truly spectacular.

Inside, the cabin is comfy and cosy and has a luxurious king size bed topped with sustainably made, environmentally conscious mattress toppers from Naturmat. The luxury bedding is made using organic Devonshire wool and biodegradable materials and guarantees you and your loved one a great night’s sleep.

The cabin also has a fab ensuite bathroom that features a large rainfall shower and a handheld shower head. The bespoke sink bowls are hand-thrown by local ceramicist, Arwyn Jones, less than a mile away in Modbury. The bathroom also features underfloor heating to keep your toes nice and warm on those chilly winter days. The cabin’s quaint kitchen is nicely equipped with an induction hob with two rings, a combined oven, microwave, grill and a small fridge. You also have saucepans, kitchen equipment, crockery, cutlery and glasses to use throughout your stay.

Back outside and as well as your wood-fired hot tub, you also have a ceramic BBQ and a pizza stone, so you can indulge in some alfresco meal preparation whilst breathing in the fresh country air. To top it off you also have outdoor hot and cold showers, which come with a useful handheld shower for washing off sandy wetsuits or dirty paws.

When it comes to venturing out, you have lots to see and do in the local area. Situated in South Devon there are plenty of great beaches nearby that offer opportunities to try your hand at surfing, waterskiing, sailing, paddleboarding, snorkelling, diving and sea swimming. Just remember to bring your costume with you! There are also some lovely secluded coves, beachside cafes and nice spots to sit and soak up the sun.

The area is also great for avid walkers, with miles of beautiful countryside just waiting to be explored. Foodies will also love the array of lovely restaurants nearby, which offer a range of locally and sustainably caught fish and seafood, seasonal and local fruit and vegetables, light bites and big tasting menus.

  • The Truffle

    • 4
    • 2 nights min stay

    The curves of Moss, one of five cabins the owners call Truffles, flow inside and out, giving you the relaxing impression that the world has no sharp edges. Even the handcrafted upcycled armchairs are comfortingly rounded, while the hammock is whatever shape you make when you’re dozing in it. Outside, the 15 acres of woodland enhance the calming effect. There’s a private cooking area with an Aquaforno system, including pizza oven and hot water heater, but also a single gas hob for quick cups of tea. A minute or so through the woods you’ll find the bathrooms, which are situated together but exclusive to each Truffle, so you can leave your stuff when you’re done. With board games and books, you could easily hang out in the Truffle for a couple of days, cosy by the wood burning stove watching out for the family of deer that often roam the woods, and the birdlife that thrives all around you. If you’re after a bit of an adventure though, you have Dartmoor one way and the North Cornwall coast the other. Take on epic hikes and climbs, or just ramble at your leisure. There’s a good chance you don’t make it any further than the Tally Ho in Hatherleigh, which is a local favourite getting quite a reputation for its home brewed beer.
