The Wagon with Faraway Views takes Glamping to a really high standard and is a great choice for a couple or a family with young children. Dogs are very much welcome here and there is a fully enclosed fenced garden - a lovely large space that wraps around the Wagon. Set in its own garden, to one side of this friendly mid-Devon farmstead setting, 100 yards beyond the farmhouse, the Wagon has a very high degree of privacy. There are tempting glimpses of the high hills of Dartmoor National Park in the distance, sweeping farmland stretching away to the front, incredible craftsmanship, the delight of unexpected space, and real style and comfort inside. Wide steps lead up to the covered veranda, a perfect place to sit to start and end each day.
The living area has a wood-burner, a bespoke dining-table and bench seats, that convert effortlessly into a double bed, and a brilliantly fitted kitchen, giving you a full-sized oven, two ring hob and fridge. The main sleeping area is the mezzanine hideaway at the opposite end of the wagon. The ladder is like a drawbridge to this gorgeous romantic space, with high ceilings and even a TV, and from your pillow you have panoramic countryside views. Beneath the mezzanine area is the en suite shower-room with lashings of hot water on tap.
This part of Devon is really unspoilt, off the beaten track and yet easy to reach from the main routes across the county. The Owners provide a map of the local footpaths so that you can set off on foot to explore. However, just a 20 minute drive will take you to the edge of Dartmoor for spectacular scenery and amazing walking.
This unique glamping wagon even amazed us! The high ceilings and large windows really bring in the light and the sense of the outside, so that whatever the time of year, you will have warm and cosy comfort amidst the elements. Whether the sun is warming the south facing verandah or the wind and rain blustering outside, The Wagon with Faraway Views is sure to be a memorable experience.
You can choose to forget the car and live the simple life for a few days or you can set off a bit further afield to explore the wilderness of Dartmoor, or the exhilarating endless sandy surfing beaches of the north Devon coast. You can even explore by train – the rural Tarka Line and its chain of little local stations is a lovely way to take in the area, stopping off as you wish for carefree pub lunches.
