Luxury glamping in Devon: Three cheers for our beautiful barrel-top! Expect absolute bliss in this cute wooden wagon. It's a rural retreat that you'll never want to leave.
Isn't she a sight for sore eyes? Larkworthy Retreat is cute as can be - and wait till you see her location. Ten acres of gorgeous grounds, with woodland, an orchard, a babbling stream and three rolling fields. Endless skies and privacy included, too. Idyllic? You bet. When you want to get away from it all, this is the place to be, dining on the patio or under the covered verandah, drinking in the views and watching the sun set, listening to the birdsong and the rustle of the trees, maybe cooking up something tasty on the BBQ. No stress, no hassle; pure bliss. This is glamping exactly how it was meant to be - and you can even bring your pampered pooches, too. Prepare to create some very special memories.
Nestled in the corner of a gently sloping field, Larkworthy Retreat has parking for two cars right behind it, so it's really easy from the get-go. Inside, it's surprisingly spacious, a hand-built bolthole that combines comfort and luxury. Your open plan living area has a fully-fitted kitchen with an electric oven, two-ring gas hob and a fridge with an ice-box (G and T, anyone?). There's plenty of space for four people to sit and eat, plus WiFi (let's face it, we all need a little internet access from time-to-time) and a flat-screen TV with Freeview, while a cosy wood-burner plus two electric radiators ensure you'll be warm and toasty whatever the time of year. Hop up a ladder to the super-sweet main mezzanine bedroom - a true room with a view, and if there are more than two of you sharing this little piece of paradise, the dining-table turns swiftly into a second double bed. The pièce de resistance has to be the en suite shower-room, with flushing loo, wash-basin with hot and cold water, a heated towel rail and a real shower, for a bathing experience that - like everything else about this fab place - is so NOT like traditional camping.
Out and about
This is a great spot for walkers, bikers and bird watchers, perfect for accessing the famous Tarka Trail, and with 350 acres of nature reserves and lakes just one and a half miles away. Alternatively, simply hop in the car and in just a few minutes you can be at the sandy beaches of Westward Ho! and Bude, or the spectacular gardens of RHS Rosemoor. So. Relax and recharge, or get out and about and explore - do whatever you fancy; this is the ideal base.
Steps up to open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. TV and wood-burner. Electric oven, 2 ring gas hob and fridge with ice-box. Fold-out double bed. Bedroom on mezzanine level (accessed via a sturdy ladder) with double bed. Shower-room with shower, WC, wash-basin and heated towel rail.
