Cabin in Devon: Our hilltop cabin is the most gorgeous place for a quiet getaway. Fresh air, peace and quiet, and your very own hot tub with a view. Awesome!
Wake up! It's a beautiful morning. And what could be nicer than opening your eyes to a stunning view over glorious countryside and up to the vast sky above? You don't even have to get out of bed. Sitting above the unspoilt north Devon countryside, King's Cabin is a totally terrific timber-clad retreat, set in 51 acres of farmland with river frontage and pretty woodland. We know we're blowing our own trumpet, but hey - this really is the height (geddit?) of luxury camping.
Wind your way through the trees from the parking-area (it's steep in some places; all part of the adventure!), and you'll find this cute cabin on stilts perched on the hillside, facing away from George Cabin, its only near neighbour. If you're lucky, you might spot one of the tame free-range pigs that roam the woods! The cabin has a generous balcony that's ideal for sunbathing, reading, cooking up a storm on the barbecue and - of course - enjoying a dip in the hot tub (glass of bubbly in the bubbles, anyone?). At ground level there's also a fire-pit where you can toast marshmallows or grill a banger.
Inside the cabin you're worlds away from everyday life. This magical place always feels warm and cosy, thanks to the timber panelling that hugs you all around, as well as a log-burner, an oil-filled radiator and even a heated towel rail in the shower-room (hot and cold running water and a proper loo, of course). So much thought has gone into designing and kitting out this stylish space, from the hand-made, super-comfy bed to the quirky copper taps and tree-like coat hooks. If you come over all Nigella you can whip up a luscious meal using the mini-cooker with two rings on the hob; to help there's a deep butler's sink, fridge with ice-box and plentiful storage. Fold out the mini dining-table and just add a glass of your favourite vino. Afterwards, you can curl up with a great book, watch the flames crackling in the log-burner or step outside onto your private deck and count the stars as they twinkle in the night sky. Total bliss.
Out and About
A ten-minute stroll from King's Cabin takes you to the friendly local pub, the Castle Inn at George Nympton, where you can get meals (even a cooked breakfast!) and WiFi, should you desperately need to get in touch with the real world (if you are planning on grabbing a bite to eat here, booking a couple weeks before your stay is advisable as it is very popular). Less than three miles away is the market town of South Molton, where there are independent shops and a twice-weekly country market, renowned for its local and artisanal produce - the perfect place to buy a treat or two before escaping back to your holiday home-from-home.
Steps to Cabin. Open plan living-room with kitchen, dining and bedroom areas. Mini cooker and two ring hob, fridge (with ice box), kettle, double bed (5') and wood-burner. Shower-room with shower, WC and wash-basin.
