Step Inside

Get ready to fall in love! As soon as you step inside you will be wowed by the gorgeous interiors. Every inch of the hideaway oozes rustic charm. From the sumptuous soft furnishings to the sweeping countryside view. You will see the farmhouse dining table to the left of the hideaway, the perfect spot for gathering the family to enjoy delicious dinners. To the right is the sweet sofa, just idyllic for relaxing with your favourite read. The well-equipped kitchen sits just behind the wood-fired stove, that not only allows you to cook scrumptious suppers, but will keep you toasty whatever the weather. The cabin-style bed separates the living and bedroom areas and will be extremely popular with younger guests. The twin bedroom sits just behind the cabin bed and to the right you’ll find the luxurious king-sized room. To the back of the safari tent is where the beautifully presented restroom, with WC and wash basin exists and opposite you’ll find the lovely shower-room.


As dawn wakes, why not head out to the decking with a fresh pot of coffee and simply listen to the birds, as they sing their morning tune? The raised deck is complete with a set of comfy wooden loungers, an idyllic spot for watching the sunset over the rolling Devonshire hills. The heavenly wood-fired hot tub can be found just down the steps from the decking. Once the children are in bed, pour yourself a glass of bubbles, hop in with your loved one and relax into a romantic evening under the stars. Below the tent, you will also find the sweet picnic table, and rustic fire pit area, perfect for alfresco cooking and toasting marshmallows!
