The Wagon with Faraway Views
6.7 miles W of Crediton
Sleeps 4 | dog friendly
Luxury wagon in Devon: Glamping taken to a whole new level! Style, comfort and gorgeous views are what you get with our wonderful wagon. Ideal for a romantic retreat or a family getaway. Why? Because you're worth it.
This place will take your breath away. Totally tranquil, in its own fenced area 100 yards from its nearest neighbour, The Wagon with Faraway Views boasts a south-facing, covered verandah and bubbling hot tub that look across gorgeous sweeping farmland to the hills of Dartmoor National Park. It's just the place to pour a coffee, grab a book and enjoy breakfast in the fresh air, relishing the peace and quiet. In the evenings you'll want to watch the sun set with a glass of something cold, perhaps while grilling a few tasty treats on the barbecue. Just sit and dream as the stars come out one by one above you.
The interior is as delightful as outside - and unexpectedly spacious, too, with high ceilings and huge windows that allow light to flood through. You can commune with nature in total comfort here. The superb fitted kitchen has a full-sized oven and a fridge with ice-box (need ice cubes for a gin and tonic? No problem!). There's a bespoke dining table with bench seats that convert effortlessly into a double bed, and a wood-burner for warmth whatever the weather may be up to (plus a couple of electric radiators). An en suite shower-room - of course - has a shower, wash-basin with hot and cold running water, heated towel rail and a proper flushing loo. Wonderfully luxurious. And tucked up above, via a little ladder, is a mezzanine bedroom, with a double bed and a TV, plus a porthole window with blissful country views. What a romantic space! Sigh...
Out and About
The Wagon is off the beaten track and completely unspoilt, yet easy to get to and with plenty to do nearby. If you bring your dog, he'll no doubt want to take you for walks along the footpaths that surround this friendly farmstead. Leave the car behind and explore on foot if you wish, or else set off behind the wheel for the wide open spaces of Dartmoor or the sandy beaches of the north Devon coast, where you can build sandcastles, sunbathe or surf to your heart's content. You can even get out and about by train, catching the rural Tarka line, hopping on and off at its little stations to look around and maybe grab a delicious pub lunch.
Steps up to open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas with wood-burner, electric oven, 2 ring gas hob, kettle, fridge with ice-box and fold-out double bed (converts from the dining-table). Bedroom 1 on mezzanine level with double bed and TV. Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
