This small, delightful site is centrally placed for all corners of Devon and Cornwall. There are 3 lodges to choose from and they sit in the beautiful and tranquil setting of Dartmoor. They enjoy stunning, uninterrupted views of Dartmoor which is 10 miles distant and offer an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and families. Up to 2 dogs are welcome in Buttercups and Brambles, charged at £5 per dog per night payable upon arrival. The lodges have panel heaters throughout and a log burner.

About the neighborhood
Highampton is a small village with a pub, village hall, school and visiting post office, Hatherleigh and Holsworthy are larger and have all the amenities you need.

Our particular little area used to be a farm and we currently have horses in the fields. In the early morning it is quite possible that you will see deer grazing. There are usually a lot of rabbits around, and foxes pay the occasional visit. Birdlife is plentiful, including woodpeckers, tree creepers and buzzards. We have a huge number of different birds and butterflies that visit us.
Getting around
You do need a car to get around but it's quiet and you rarely get held up even in Summer. We're nicely placed to access Cornwall and all parts of Devon.
