Off-grid Den sleeping up to 4 & Cabin sleeping up to 6, hidden away. Unwind, connect with nature + explore the breathtaking countryside of West Devon.

Devon Dens is a woodland garden retreat, surrounded by woodland and the deep lanes of West Devon. The off-grid sanctuary is home to a charming cabin- allowing up to 4 guests to unwind, connect with nature and explore the breathtaking countryside. The Cabin overlooks the pond and reed beds - sleeps up to 6 guests. The emphasis at this eco-friendly site is to minimise carbon footprint, hence there is solar power, compostable loos and water is treated through reed beds. With no Wi-Fi or phone signal, this is the perfect place to reconnect with nature and enjoy time away from screens.

The south-facing, private site is open year round and is surrounded by extraordinary countryside, with lots of walks taking in a proper local pub and delightful villages. Roadford Lake is nearby with a large variety of activities available including bird watching, archery, water sports and much more. Okehampton and Dartmoor are located just 8 miles from the woodland and the world-class beaches of North Cornwall are within easy driving distance.

Inside the super-cosy den there is a double bed, a living area with a double sofa bed, dining area seating 4 people, plus a funky private shower and compost loo. The Den contains a wood burner, 2 ring gas burner with grill, a hot outdoor shower, washing up sink, BBQ / Fire pit, brilliant three-person hammock, all essential crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment, wine tumblers, maps and solar PV for lighting. There are also a number of Jigsaws, books and games to keep everyone entertained.

The Cabin will sleep up to 6 in a double bedroom, a mezzanine level and double sofa bed with an indoor bathroom, lounging area with 2 sofas, kitchen area with table that seats up to 6, woodburner for those chilly evenings and outside decking with a fire pit.

Guest will need to bring their own bedding (as there is only a protector sheet over the mattress) and food. Bio-logs, wood for the wood burner and locally made charcoal, plus a selection of delicious, local produce are all available to order prior to your arrival.

The prices are for up to 4 people in the Den (minimum two night stay) start from £90 per night. The Cabin start from £115 per night.
