Carpenter’s Cabin soothes the tension of modern life right out of you and fills you with the peace of nature. There are rabbits and badgers rustling in the woods, kingfishers streaking over the pond and the sound of the rippling stream in the background. You can gather everyone round the wood-burner in the evening for games, stories and even guitar practice, light the firepit and stargaze in silence or unwind in the wood-fired sauna or hot tub. The welcome hamper introduces you to the amazing local produce, and walking maps of routes surrounding the site and further afield, invite you to explore. There’s the Granite Way cycle path following the railway tracks from Okehampton and even the beautiful beaches at Bude if you need even more to occupy your time.

Carpenter’s Cabin was designed by Ben and Jo not only to give you a great experience of nature, but also to show how its possible to live more in harmony with it. Wood-burners, compost loos, local timber and solar power all minimise impact on the environment, while careful stewardship of their land has lead to flourishing wildlife that benefits everything except the plants in the kitchen garden, that need firm but friendly defending from slugs! Ben and Jo can talk you through any aspect of living in an ecologically sound way, and even build you a cabin of your own, but all they really want is for you to come and feel the peace of their slice of nature.

    • 3 nights Min Stay low season 7 nights high seasons

    In a secluded spot overlooking the lush Devon countryside, this large, modern Cedar-clad home is the perfect place to unwind with family in style and luxury. The heart of this home is the stunning kitchen and dining area. A large island sits in the centre of a sleek, modern kitchen with all the conveniences required for creating feasts for large groups. Gather round the island, pour a drink and keep the chef company. Congregate for meals at the large marble dining table which, when covered in laden dishes and full glasses, becomes the place to create lovely memories. Bi-fold doors offer the countryside as a backdrop and, when the weather is fine, pull them aside to bring in the fresh country air and give greater prominence to the fabulous surroundings. The outdoor space is wonderful with something for all to enjoy. Youngsters will love the large grounds, trampoline and play area, as well as splashing about in the swim spa. A large terrace becomes the outside living space in the warmer months and sun loungers and patio dining furniture make it a comfortable, relaxing space to unwind. Lie back in warm rays listening to the gentle splashing from the spa and distant laughter of young ones playing. The fabulous exterior is more-than-matched by the delightful interior. Light, bright and spacious, with an abundance of large picture windows, it is a special place to chill out whatever the weather. Tartan carpets and rugs keep bedrooms and living spaces cosy, while smooth tiles add to the clean, neutral aesthetic. Take some quiet time in the peaceful living room and curl up with a coffee on the large sofas beside the crackling wood burner. Patio doors open out on to the deck for easy access to the garden terrace. When bedtime calls, there are five luxurious rooms to chose from, including one on the ground floor of the property. They all boast modern ensuites, high-end mattresses and linens and have magnificent views across the county. Should the wonderful views inspire guests to explore the area, there is plenty to see and do - head to the coast for days swimming, building sandcastles and rock-pooling. Hikers and bikers will love the rugged Blackdown Hills and there are lots of traditional pubs and great restaurants for refuelling after a day filled with adventure. The Ashill Inn and The Drewe Arms at Broadhembury both come well recommended.
