Step Inside

As soon as you pull open the front door and step inside you will be amazed by the stunning interiors. This is luxury glamping at its finest! From a sumptuous king-sized bed to the gorgeous soft furnishings and a spellbinding vista of rolling countryside, there’s nowhere that will make you feel quite so content. The lovely farmhouse dining table sits to the left of Tamar and is just the spot for social dinners with the ones you love most. To the right, you’ll find the sweet sofa, where you can simply while away the hours with a holiday read. The well-equipped kitchen sits just behind the wood-fired range. This unique oven not only allows you to cook with ease but will also keep you cosy whatever the weather. The cabin-style bed creates separation between the living and sleeping areas. This cosy enclosed double bed will be popular with younger guests! The twin bedroom is just behind the cabin bed and to the right you will see the lavish king-sized bedroom. At the back of the hideaway is where the restroom with WC and washbasin exists, as well as the beautifully presented, separate shower-room.


As dusk falls, why not head out to the decking with your favourite tipple and admire how the sky transforms into a pastel pallet of soft summer hues? The raised deck is complete with a set of wonderful wooden loungers, an idyllic spot for soaking up some golden sunshine. The heavenly hot tub can be found just down the steps from the decking. Once the children have fallen asleep, hop in with your favourite travel companion and relax into the romantic ambience this dream-worthy hideaway oozes. Below the tent, you will also find the sweet picnic table and rustic fire pit area, perfect for alfresco cooking and toasting marshmallows!


There is electric car charging available. Please speak with the owner to book prior to your arrival.


A stone's throw from Tamar is quirky Totnes. Full of eclectic independent shops and an array of delicious eateries, it's a brilliant town to explore for the day. On Fridays and Saturdays, you'll find the bustling weekly market, where you can pick up local delights to take back to your hideaway.

Dartmoor National Park and the South Hams countryside are right on your doorstep. Head to the postcard-pretty village of Stoke Gabriel, where you will arrive at the edge of the River Dart. Try your hand at crabbing or kayaking and then finish your day with a delicious bite to eat at The River Shack. There is an abundance of picturesque villages with thatched cottages and welcoming pubs to explore nearby.

On a sunny day, why not head to the coast? Visit the breathtaking Breakwater beach, followed by a dip in the outdoor Shoalstone seawater pool. There are plenty of lovely places for a spot of lunch or dinner. Should you wish to take to the water, there is a ferry from Brixham harbour to the thriving town of Torquay.

The combined riverboat and steam railway trip between Totnes and Dartmouth are not to be missed. There are fantastic steam train tours to neighbouring towns and villages, such as Totnes, Kingswear and Dartmouth, boasting stunning scenery along the way. For a day out right on your doorstep, the National Trust's Compton Castle is just a short stroll away from Tamar. After a day of adventure, you will love returning to your magical hideaway for a relaxing evening under the stars.
