The main bedroom oozes luxury, with a sumptuous bed complete with soft Egyptian cotton and a view that will simply take your breath away. It is the most idyllic place to get snug and enjoy some quality time with that special someone. Pop on the Roberts radio and embrace a long lazy morning in bed. After, sink into the stunning freestanding copper roll top bath, filled with bubbles of course! And if you want to get closer to nature, the whole bathroom wall opens out. Stay sheltered from the rain on a blustery evening or open up the space and embrace the fresh morning air. This bespoke retreat is the perfect place to call home for a little while.
With its sleek black exterior, combined with rustic, wooden touches, the whole place looks like a work of art. There is so much outside space to roam and with friendly farm animals on site, you will love spending your days here. Dine alfresco on the sheltered decking area or enjoy a delicious barbecue on a balmy summer evening at the picnic table. Just a few steps away from the main bedroom, is the heavenly wood-fired hot tub. Once the sun has disappeared beyond the hills, embrace a starlit dip with a chilled glass of bubbles or freshen up in the outdoor shower… the perfect end to any day! Oh, and did we mention, your beloved pooch is more than welcome to join you on the adventure...

You also have Dartmoor National Park and the South Hams countryside is right on your doorstep. Or head to the pretty village of Stoke Gabriel, where you will come to the edge of the River Dart. Try your hand at crabbing or kayaking on the river then finish with a lovely meal at The River Shack. For cycling, head to Haldon Forest Park, with its variety of cycling trails, you are able to hire bikes if you don't have them with you.
