General

Climb the beautifully worn, wooden steps to enter Cherry Blossom through the dreamy Dutch door and discover a hut full of indulgence and character. Gorgeous oak fittings and delicate homely details greet you in a space that encourages you to unwind and relax in picturesque surroundings. Find yourself daydreaming in the bright and cosy dining area while enjoying a morning coffee and embracing the blissful crisp sunlight as you look out of the wooden windows, to unspoilt fields and gentle woodland. A well-equipped kitchen sits to the right of the hut and is the perfect spot to prepare delicious late brunches and warming early suppers. There's a 2-ring hob, fridge, kettle and toaster so you'll have everything you need.

At the end of a long day of discovering the secrets of Devon's natural landscapes, return to your rural home from home and lose yourself in its indulgent home comforts. Transform this magical hut by folding down the lovely double bed from the side wall to sit snugly atop the dining area, which creates a beautifully intimate space. A charming wood burning stove sits to the right of the door and bathes the hut in a heavenly warm glow from is enchanting flames. A Flat Screen TV and DVD player add to Cherry Blossom's luxurious touches to ensure a peaceful and relaxing evening under the stars.

In the morning, awake to soothing birdsong and start your day with a crisp splash in the fresh stream that runs alongside the hut before enjoying a long refreshing shower in the cute and compact shower room.

A delightfully rugged wooden fence encloses Cherry Blossom's idyllic garden area, which features magnificent views across a rolling meadow that can be enjoyed from the hut's charming deckchairs or the supremely indulgent hot tub. A beautifully subtle barbeque tops off this brilliant garden, allowing you to enjoy a spot of al fresco dining in the warm evening breeze.

Also snuggled in this picture-perfect meadow is Cherry Blossom's sister hut Apple Blossom, although both have their own separate entrances and are very private from each other.
