Set at the edge of Dartmoor National Park is The Bird Box, a charming wooden structure built into the sloping landscape of a large wooden garden. Tucked away and secluded on its own path, this is a romantic hideaway for 2. The tranquil area helps to take away the stress of daily life. Enjoy relaxing in the outdoor cedar wood hot tub under the stars (not for exclusive use).

Based on a bird box structure, this quirky property makes connecting with nature easy. Start each day awoken by birdsong and sunshine filtering in through the windows. From the property enjoy the peaceful sounds of the nearby river as well as many of the other charming countryside noises. Hire bikes and explore the area, or for entertainment go to Adventure Okehampton where there are 25 different activities to try.

Inside the Bird Box there is a luxurious king sized bed, from which there are beautiful canopy of the trees seen through the double doors. The bedroom has an en suite shower room. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with all self-catering essentials and outside you will find a verander. Many aspects of the design have been influenced by romance, luxury, style and nature.

The cedar wood hot tub is set in the upper garden carefully located for the best setting and views under an old oak tree. This is shared with another accommodation.

Artist created bit of Magic
by Jess

We loved our short break at the Bird Box... and without being dramatic... I would describe it as magical. It is a simple but well thought out cabin with the most wonderful view over a large tree. You open up the sliding doors and all you can hear is birdsong and the stream. You feel very at one with nature and it is a great place for couples and romance.

Meeting the owner Yvette, I saw that this is an artists creativity at work in bringing us unique and special places to stay.

Everything you need is there as there is a shower room and kitchenette, small table and chairs as well as a delightful double bedroom. We were given a cosy welcome with the fire and electric blanket on.

Don't forget your eye mask, and swimmers. Use of the hot tub is included!
