Dreaming of a cosy escape hidden away from the bustling outside world? Holsome Hideaway ticks all the boxes for a restorative getaway. Settled in a tranquil meadow in the heart of the South Hams, this bespoke hideout boasts sweeping vistas across unspoilt countryside towards Dartmoor National Park (which can be enjoyed from the sumptuous king-size bed). Warm wooden tones and deep forest greens adorn the inside of the hideaway, mirroring the natural world outside. Step out onto the lovely decking, cocooned by trees, to find the luxurious wood-fired hot tub, just waiting for you to hop in. There’s a sweet bistro table and rustic firepit, so you can cook and dine alfresco whilst the stars twinkle above… bliss!

Step Inside

The circular door is a unique feature - step inside and feel instantly at home. Designed with luxury and comfort in mind, Holsome Hideaway is the perfect place to call home for a little while. We love the deep wooden flooring and forest green features. The gorgeous kitchen is well equipped, with an induction 2 ring hob, electric oven, Belfast sink, fridge with ice-box, kettle and toaster. Sit back on the plush little sofa with a cuppa or enjoy a spot of brunch at the breakfast bar. The king-size bed is snuggled to the right of the hideaway, adorned with Egyptian cotton linen and a luxury duvet promising a peaceful slumber. Wake to the sound of birdsong and admire sweeping vistas across unspoilt countryside through the large bedside window. There’s underfloor heating to keep you toasty during the cooler months and large double doors to fling open on a blissful summer's day. To the left, sits the beautifully presented shower-room, complete with a heavenly rainfall shower and ‘made by nature’ products, perfect for freshening up for the day ahead. Fluffy robes are also provided, so you can get snug after a shower or dip in the bubbling hot tub!


As sunlight slips through the trees, step out onto the decking and enjoy those first few moments of sunshine. Delve into a new read or simply spend a few moments in solitude. The hot tub takes centre stage and it even bubbles, which is unique for a wood-fired tub! It’s built into the decking and surrounded by trees, so your privacy is promised. Begin the day with a relaxing soak, hop in for a sunset tipple or embrace a moonlit dip with the one you love - utterly irresistible. The lovely owners will have the hot tub heated up prior to your arrival, waste no time and hop straight in! As dusk settles, sizzle up some local produce over the rustic firepit, there’s a grill plate perfect for barbecuing. Enjoy at the bistro table and toast to magical getaway in nature's paradise. However you decide to spend your time at Holsome Hideaway, you are sure to create everlasting memories and leave feeling utterly content.


Be sure to pack your walking boots, as Holsome Hideaway has easy access to an abundance of stunning walking routes. Starting with the Avon Valley boasting its excellent footpaths and of course the rugged landscape of Dartmoor National Park, which can be seen from the hideaway.
