Ashley's Shack

Near Dartmouth, Devon, England

In a great location, slap bang between Dartmouth and Totes, this special shack has everything you could need for a rurally restorative break.

Nestled in an idyllic spot above a large lake within three acres of gorgeous grounds and woods, Ashley’s Shack is the perfect place for a romantic break for 2 people. Inside, it’s just as special as outside, with all you could need for a comfortable stay – from a large comfy bed, warming wood-burner, galley kitchen and small but perfectly formed shower-room.

Outside, there is a patio-area and gas BBQ, perfect for cooking and dining alfresco of an evening, and sun loungers for relaxing in the sunshine whilst taking in the wonderful surroundings. The nature lovers amongst you will love spotting all kinds of wildlife, especially around the lake, home to two islands and a little rowing boat that you are welcome to use. Your only near neighbours here are a lovely yurt and the owners (who will very kindly transport your luggage up to the cabin in their tractor), but all are private from one another.

Being located just off the Totnes to Dartmouth, Poppy Yurt is excellently located for exploring all that the fabulous South Hams has to offer. From Totnes, with its Friday morning market and eco-friendly shopping centre and delightful Dartmouth to Blackpool Sands (a great beach) and more.

There is a 3 night minimum stay with prices ranging from £49 - £150 per night. No children but a babe in arms is welcome. No pets.
