If you’re seeking a luxurious hideout for you and that special someone to retreat to, Harvest Hut is just the tonic. Settled in the corner of a pretty meadow, with views across the gentle south Devon countryside, its location is idyllic for exploring this special corner of the UK. Inside, discover the gorgeous open-plan living space, adorned with bespoke furnishings, deep blue tones and soft lighting. Enjoy a golden pot of coffee and breakfast in bed on a chilly winter morning, lighting the wood-burner for extra cosiness. Or if it's a summer escape on the agenda, pop out onto your decking for a dreamy alfresco brunch! What’s more, this hideaway warmly welcomes your four-legged companion. Harvest Hut is perched in a field where there is also a safari tent and 5 adult-only campervan pitches. The hut is positioned in a way to ensure you have privacy. Please note, that the caravan pitches are only open during the peak summer months, so in the spring, autumn and winter, the site becomes even more serene.
Arriving at Harvest Hut is a dream come true, you’ll love nothing more than calling this your home for a little while. Thoughtfully handcrafted for two, its stunning open-plan design allows your days to flow with ease, whilst ensuring cosiness. There’s a comfy sofa, positioned perfectly to admire the view through the large window and a Smart TV for the ultimate movie night. Deep ocean blue tones create a soothing ambience and the black wooden beams are a bespoke feature. The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything you could wish for and more; a 2 ring hob, small oven/grill, fridge with ice-box, toaster and slimline wine fridge. Rustle up some culinary delights and enjoy a candlelit dinner for two at the intimate dining table. You’ll find the heavenly super king-size bed snuggled in a cocoon at the back of the hideaway. We really wouldn’t blame you for spending your mornings tucked up here, getting lost in a good read as the embers of the fireplace glow golden. The beautifully presented shower-room provides the perfect spot to freshen up for the day ahead.
Alfresco moments are oh so magical at this countryside haven. The spacious decking area is positioned in a way to assure privacy with wooden fencing and a grassy bank lined with beautiful flowers. It’s a lovely little sun trap, so sit back, relax and soak up the rays on the wooden loungers. The large parasol is perfect if you’re in need of a little shade whilst you get stuck into a holiday read. As the sun sets over the hills beyond, it's time to sizzle up some delights over the impressive barbecue - alfresco cooking and dining really is a must here! Enjoy at the bistro table with a G&T or fresh lemonade… delicious! Once the moon and stars appear, step up into the wood-fired hot tub and drift into a state of pure relaxation. You’ll also find a separate firepit area behind the hut, so you can keep cosy on those chillier eves - get snug under a blanket and embrace wonderful fireside moments; sharing stories, toasting marshmallows or enjoying a warming hot chocolate!
Harvest Hut is sublimely located for exploring the best that south Devon has to offer, from coast to countryside. The closest town is Totnes, a lovely place to visit for independent shopping and foodie delights. The Bull Inn serves fresh produce with an ever changing seasonal menu, whilst The Hairy Barista is a firm favourite for wholesome lunches and soul-soothing coffee. There’s a busting weekly market on Fridays and Saturdays, so you can pick up some local produce to enjoy back at your hideaway. Hop on the combined riverboat and steam railway trip between Totnes and Dartmouth, and admire the gorgeous scenery along the way. The lovely village of Dittisham sits on the west bank of the River Dart, here you can get the Greenway Ferry across the river to the Greenway Quay, where you can visit the former home of writer Agatha Christie. It’s now owned by the National Trust and boasts idyllic views across the gardens and river. Whilst on this side of the river, why not head to the quaint village of Stoke Gabriel; embrace a day of watersports or fishing, before grabbing a bite to eat at The River Shack.
At Harvest Hut, you’re also within reaching distance of Dartmoor National Park, so pack your walking boots and get ready for an adventure. You’ll never tire of exploring its rich history, rare wildlife and mesmerising wild swimming spots, and you’re spoilt for choice of country pubs, The Rugglestone Inn being a firm favourite! For more unbeatable scenery, the South Hams Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is just a stone’s throw in the other direction leading all the way to the south coast. Here, you’ll find the wonderful beaches of Bigbury Bay, Bantham, South Sands, Blackpool Sands, Soar Mill Cove and Slapton. And finally the National Trust properties of Saltram House, Overbecks, Cotehele and Buckland Abbey are all worth a visit! This wonderful corner of south Devon is just the spot to retreat to, and what’s better than returning from a day full of adventure to a luxurious hideaway with a steamy wood-fired hot tub… bliss!
