A really perfect cottage. A nice relaxing getaway. We brought our dog as it had a secluded garden and she loved being able to freely run around. Really cute place. Will definitely be back!

How lovely that your dog had a wonderful holiday too! It's always great when they have that freedom to relax as much as you do. Donna, Customer Support

What a wonderful setting for a peaceful holiday. The views really are superb and the wagon is beautifully crafted and well-appointed. Hot tub was a plus for children and adult. There is plenty to do in local area as well as further afield. Hosts were welcoming and very accommodating.

Our stay was everything we expected and more! The wagon was beautiful and the views and surroundings amazing!
Would highly recommend and will definitely be returning!

Thank you so much to the hosts.

A lovely place with lovely hosts. The perfect spot. Hot tub really adds to the holiday. We will definitely be back!

We are thrilled that you had a wonderful time and looking forward to welcoming you back - there is plenty to explore in the area and will have you returning for years to come. Sarah, Customer Support

This is a beautiful shepherds hut with everything you need. The location is idyllic and I loved watching the little lambs playing in the field next door. The garden was totally secure for our dog and she loved exploring. Our hosts were lovely and the welcome cream tea was delicious. An evening in the hot tub looking at the stars was a high light

What a wonderfully relaxing holiday watching lambs playing in the field, truly idyllic. We are so pleased your dog had a good time safely exploring in the garden. We hope you will be able to visit again soon. Sarah R, Customer Support

The wagon was a great little find, absolutely loved the hot tub. 5stars from us, we will return.

We love this place and definitely we will come back there! Owned are such a warm people! Perfect time!

Thank you for your lovely comments - the owners will be delighted. Sarah, Customer Support

Had a lovely stay. Owner are so friendly and welcomed us with a little welcome hamper, fresh eggs, apple juice, cream tea and milk. They don't disturb you, but Close by if you need them. Shops are bit far, so come prepare if you don't like driving all the time. There is a local pub near by, and a lovely restaurant not to far as well, ( walking distance) food really good and not expensive. Enjoy the views, they are breathtaking from morning to night. Walking in the surrounding fields, all just nature around you, from sheep's, horses, birds & chickens. A definite place to go to and relax, so peaceful.. All was very well, and we enjoyed it. The hot tub is a added bonus. Wagon is nice and cozy, and warm. Lovely inside and outside.

This was our 2nd holiday to the wagon in less than a year. Hosts are wonderful and friendly. Nice personal touches such as a welcome basket with apple juice and cream tea, eggs and milk. The wagon doesn't disappoint its very well equipped and so cosy and we can't wait to return.

This was the 2nd time we stayed at The Wagon, and yet again we could not fault it. The hosts are extremely friendly, they are on hand if needed otherwise leave you to enjoy the peace and tranquility of your stay. The addition of the hot tub is a huge bonus, which we made use of every night. 100% recommend, and we will be back again.

This property was everything we could have wanted and more. We wanted to have a break from the hustle and bustle of busy life and this place gave us exactly that. Waking up and sitting outside with a cup of tea to just the sound of birds and having nothing but fields surrounding you was amazing. The shepherds hut was cosy, comfortable and had everything we needed. Owners were lovely and despite not bothering us during our stay, they weren’t far away if we needed anything. Our little boy loved every single minute, especially the hot tub. We didn’t want to leave, we will definitely be rebooking!!!

It sounds like you had a wonderful stay. Waking up in such peaceful surroundings with just the sound of the birds sounds perfect! We hope to welcome you back again in the future. Kelsey, Customer Support

We had a wonderful relaxing stay- the hot tub with wonderful views was such a luxury. Shops are quite a distance so come prepared there is a lovely full equipped kitchen and the veranda was lovely to sit out on.

What can we say we had an amazing time in the wagon. It was so peaceful and the views really are as good as the pictures. Our two boys loved waking up to the horses in the next fields. The owners were very welcoming and we had a lovely little basket on arrival with tea coffee eggs and milk etc. A lovely little touch. The wagon had everything inside we needed for our stay, even games and books, and the hot tub was lovely in the evening. Would definitely go back and recommend it

The property is stunning. The hosts met us on arrival and explained everything and then met us when leaving to see if we had a good stay. We knew we could contact at any time if needed, but we didn't need to. We stayed here with 2 adults and 2 children aged 11 and 15. The hot tub is a great addition. It's set in a very quiet location which is perfect for relaxing and also not to far a drive for some beautiful places to visit. The views are stunning.

This was our first holiday off-island in 3 years and sadly we all got Covid within days. Rob and Jean were so kind and helpful. They turned down the heat of the hot tub on our request, as the weather was so hot! They were also able to help with our feather/dust mite allergy requirements. When we were ill they offered to get shopping for us. There was also a generous basket of their eggs, delicious local apple juice and cream tea waiting for us on arrival! It’s a beautiful place, so peaceful and relaxing. The wagon has everything you could possibly need for a short stay. Our only very slight gripe was having to build our bed every evening as we’d given the bunk bed to our daughter. If we hadn’t been ill it wouldn’t have bothered us though! We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the wagon!

I can't recommend the wagon highly enough. I literally thought I'd died and gone to heaven. The scenery is stunning, the garden is beautiful and watching the birds and the horses was so relaxing. The hot tub was great but I would go without it personally. Maybe a hammock?

Perfect peace and panoramic views.Excellent for combat stress sufferers.

Another beautiful stay in this magical shepherds hut. The owners are so respectful and kind. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and everything has been thought of to make staying here a pure joy.

We have just returned from our 4 night trip at The Waggon with Faraway Views and feel completely refreshed after our break. The wagon is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need. The views are stunning and we enjoyed watching the horses who spent their days in the surrounding fields. The wagon was the perfect first holiday for our dog, the garden is a lovely size for him to run around and play in and it is fully enclosed. To summarise we would say the Wagon with Faraway Views is in a idyllic location which enables you to explore Devon, it is immaculately presented and our daughter thoroughly enjoyed using the hot tub!

The wagon was so much bigger than I thought it was going to be. The bed was so comfy I didn't want to get out of it. The wagon surpassed my expectations, the views were amazing and I loved waking up to horses in the fields Infront and to the side. The hosts were absolutely wonderful, greeting us on arrival and leave, a wonderful touch was the cream tea and apple juice they had left for us. The hot tub was wonderful and we enjoyed the privacy and peace we had. Great location for day trips and the fact you can see dartmoor is a bonus too. Would recommend and definitely will return.

This was our second visit to The Wagoon, its a beautiful little peaceful hide away with stunning views of Dartmoor, as always we received a warm and welcome greeting from Rob and Jean. The Wagoon is a perfect place to relax, we look forward to returning.

Great weekend away, great location, clean accommodation, would definitely recommend.

Sitting in the hot tub gazing up at the stars was just wonderful and during the day the uninterrupted view were an absolute delight. I would highly recommend a stay at the Wagon with Faraway views!

Absolutely beautiful wagon with everything you could possibly need. Warm and cosy (even in the bad weather!) Friendly and welcoming owner. Very peaceful and private location with amazing views. Perfect spot for rest and relaxation. We will definitely be booking again. Thank you

We had an amazing stay! The hosts were incredibly helpful and lovely, location was perfect for what we were planning on doing and the wagon itself was impeccable!

Will definitely be returning!

We're delighted that you enjoyed your stay, so much so that you're planning a return visit. It's great to hear that the owners made you feel so welcome; we're very much looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Julie, Customer Support

Loved the wagon, it was clean and well equipped, stunning location ideal for those seeking peace and quiet and privacy, a bonus that we can take our dog, the hosts were friendly and helpful, we have already booked to return next year.

This is a wonderful little gem of a place to stay with the most perfect views. A very relaxing stay.

Our week away in the wagon was absolute bliss! The wagon has the most amazing views and we loved seeing all the farm animals everyday. It was the perfect way to relax and unwind, with the hot tub being a much loved feature of the wagon. We would definitely recommend the wagon or even look to return again!

We had a truly wonderful stay. Very friendly hosts Lovely cream tea and eggs (they were fresh and tasted wonderful) Much more space inside than I was expecting, we were 3 adults and a dog Quality of everything was excellent from the wagon itself to all that was in it Fabulous library and board games Garden was beautiful with lots of wild flowers Locally, fresh eggs up the driveway and the New Inn at Coleford had great food. Centrally located to visit the North Devon coast and the South. Dartmoor was stunning with lots of great walks and hidden villages. Castle Drogo, just a few miles away, was wonderful.

What a perfect piece of holiday heaven. Spectacular views, peaceful, wonderful helpful owners. Ideal for kids and doggie with lots of secure beautiful garden to play in, horses to stroke and combines to watch. Hot powerful shower, comfy beds, tastefully decorated and really clean. We will return to relax again. Thank you

The hosts were absolutely amazing. Welcoming & friendly. They were very patient with our two kids and took the time with them to introduce them to their dogs and animals. The wagon was finished to a high spec and was absolutely immaculate. The high quality bed linen was really appreciated also. All in all a great family short break, we loved every minute of it.

Breath taking views. Lovely private garden hot tub was a massive hit with the kids. Very well presented. Very clean inside and out. Everything u need was there. Highley recommend to anyone wanting a quiet break. Will definitely be back.

The most beautiful wagon with incredible scenery - exceeded all of my expectations. Amazing reception from the hosts who were lovely and friendly. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family.

A perfect retreat for peace & quiet & excellent access to Dartmoor, we will definitely return ??

Our break started well with a super friendly welcome at this picture-postcard shepherds hut. The owners have thought of everything, from the well equipped kitchen to comfortable beds with luxurious cotton bedding.

Unlike many shepherds huts, this one has two separate bedroom areas, making it feel spacious and that you have your own room if sharing with a friend or family. The electric heaters are a clever addition, with the back up of a gorgeous mini wood stove, which we didn't need despite chilly evenings as the hut is so well insulated.

The hot tub is a welcome touch, with the most amazing views. We used it way more than we expected, and loved how it eased us out after long walks in the truly stunning Devonshire countryside that leads straight from the door.

We would definitely recommend the wagon for great family time. We did so much as a family. Played games, went for long walks with the dog and relaxed in the hot tub. It was great fun.

Wonderful getaway, the welcome basket was very thoughtful (and the apple juice was amazing!). Gorgeous views and a very comfortable bed for a good nights sleep. Would definitely recommend. Thankyou!

The owners were friendly and easy to contact. We were comfortable and warm and the welcome goodies were a thoughtful touch. The views are fantastic especially at sunrise and sunset. The wagon is in a good location for walks and easy access to Dartmoor.

The cabin is a fantastic place for a quiet get away - stunning views, especially while in the hot tub. Great hosts with a lovely welcome basket of home made scones, jam, cream - as well as milk and farm fresh eggs.

Had a great time. Really enjoyed the cream tea with jam and the abundance of board games on arrival. Really nice touches. Location was amazing, hosts super friendly and helpful. Great time.

Me and my boyfriend came here for a weekend away for our anniversary and it was so cute! Amazing facilities, the little extras made all the difference. Would definitely come back in the future! X

Would highly recommend this perfect holiday home, cannot fault anything. Thank you for the wonderful break away.

We liked the remote ness of the property however recommended that you go prepared as some of the information given on the website is out of date! For example the Ruby Farm shop mentioned closed 18 months ago!

The Wagon With Faraway Views is just perfect for a safe and secluded get-away. It's tiny but really well designed and feels spacious. The views are stunning, and the veranda and hot tub mean you can really enjoy them to the full as you relax. We came away thoroughly refreshed.

Excellent views, peaceful location, cleanliness, private hot tub, very secure garden for dog, privacy (owners at farm house but did not intrude), equipment, outside deck.

Fabulous place to stay. Amazing views. The waggon is gorgeous. Thank you for having us.

We had a lovely week in the wagon, even though we don't live that far from the site, it was perfect for us to get away and enjoy a quiet break.

The location was great with the views, it was also very nice to catch and have a chat with the owners, just a shame we are in these times of social distancing, because I'm sure we may have had a few more chats.

All in all lovely and thank you.


Almost lost for words! A fantastic bolt hole in a beautiful setting. Everything was perfect about the property, clean, well appointed, cosy and relaxing, an absolute gem. A friendly welcome by the owner on arrival along with some tasty scones with jam and clotted cream. Hope to visit again in the not to distant future.

We had a lovely relaxing weekend at the wagon. The wagon was very cosy especially with the log burner going. Set in a beautiful location with spectacular views. Being able to see the stars from the hot tub both nights was truly amazing! We have already recommended to friends and family and hope to return again in the future. The welcome basket was a lovely touch and we felt very welcome.

Myself and my fiance loved our stay for the weekend. The location was beautiful and the accommodation was just perfect! The owners were very welcoming, friendly and accommodating for everything and even recommended places nearby. Being able to bring our dog along was the best little bonus and there was even a little welcome treat for him too! We have already recommended this place to friends and will definitely be coming back again.

The wagon with faraway view is perfect, the location and hosts are lovely , the wagon it self is amazing, having the sleeping space tucked away made so much more sense then spending all day sat on something that would turn into you bed, very swayed to buying one myself as my permanent home, the views and location I may not be able to afford,

A small cosy space that was ideal for a short getaway from the busy day to day life! Genuinely felt like we were in the middle of nowhere but only a short distance from towns and the hot tub was the cherry on top!

We had a fantastic stay at the Wagon. Every need was catered for. Bed super comfy with gorgeous linen and the bedroom space was very romantic. The cream tea on arrival was a lovely touch. The absolute selling point were the amazing views! Sitting on the porch and sitting in the hot-tub was so peaceful watching the horses and listening to the birds allowed us to relax fully. Would highly recommend!

The Wagon was a pleasure to stay in and made for a unique and memorable experience. This was enhanced by the addition of a hot tub, overlooking the spectacular views, after we made our reservation. It was apparent that there had been a lot of consideration regarding the use of space within The Wagon. The owners were friendly and accommodated our unexpected early arrival. The welcome basket was very much appreciated and our Chihuahua thoroughly enjoyed his bone biscuit.

Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

We had a fabulous short break at the Wagon. The Wagon was spotless, well equipped and set in the most stunning location which lived up to the name. We were welcomed by Jean and a lovely cream tea on arrival. The owners were around on the farm if needed but the Wagon was set in its own field so you had plenty of privacy and being completely enclosed meant our dog had plenty of freedom and thoroughly enjoyed herself too. We had glorious weather and had the most relaxing break, playing games with the kids and jumping in the hot tub. We would all highly recommend the Wagon and will love to return one day. Thank you!

This is a gorgeous little wagon with breath taking views. I took my mum and her dog stan and we all had a fantastic time. The Wagon is beautifully laid out and spotless. It is kitted out with absolutely everything you need on your hols with plenty of storage for its size. The owners are friendly and helpful and there when you need them but they leave you to your own holiday devices much of the time making it feel like a tranquil remote retreat. I cant recommend this holiday wagon enough!

The owners were welcoming and friendly and the welcome basket was a lovely touch. The cabin was spotless, comfortable and very cozy with wonderful views. we all thoroughly enjoyed a peaceful and relaxing stay.We would definitely recommend the property to others. A real gem!

The wagon was beautifully presented, the welcome pack was delicious and appreciated, there was a surprising amount of storage, car parking was convenient and close by, bedding and towels were lovely and luxurious, and electrical items and the shower were brilliant and worked perfectly. Our hosts were friendly and informative, and there were some fantastic magazines, leaflets and other local information in the wagon which helped us get the most out of our holiday.

We had a lovely stay at the wagon, perfect location for enjoying Dartmoor National Park and the coast. The wagon is beautiful and the owners were very welcoming. Thank you!

We loved the welcome present and the owners pub suggestion (The New Inn). The views from the waggon are great!

Lovely peaceful setting, very child and dog friendly, wouldn’t change a thing about the wagon brilliant for a little break away. Would definitely recommend to friends/family.

Simply gorgeous little place to stay.

Everything about our short stay was perfect. There wasn’t anything I could fault. The wagon itself was beautiful and in the most perfect location with walks in every direction as soon as you step off the farm. Easy access to Dartmoor, local beaches and towns and villages to explore too. Or just sit on the decking soaking up the magnificent view and the sunshine with a drink of something cold or a good book. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and on hand if we needed but also did not intrude on our privacy. Little extra touches like a vase of daffodils and a welcome basket for us and a welcome bone for our dog were also very much appreciated. They also had a very relaxed manor when it came to us bringing our dog. Having the wagon in a completely fenced off area made the stay even more easy that he could run around free as much as he liked. There was no hassle of him having to constantly be on a lead! I could not rave about this place enough! If I could give more than 5 stars I would! We will most definitely be back.

This place was perfect for small simple living. A perfect spot for a slow paced holiday with lots of reading and a great location to be based in to explore the beautiful Dartmoor!!

This was the most perfect, tranquil, peaceful holiday I’ve ever had. The Wagon was so amazing and the views awe inspiring!

We had a wonderful short break at the Wagon over the New Year period. Rob and Jean are excellent hosts, welcoming and friendly and very helpful.

The Wagon itself is fabulous; incredibly well equipped and finished to the highest standard. It was very comfortable and very cosy, thanks to the log burner. It's well positioned between Dartmoor and Exmoor and we visited both National Parks. There are some very good pubs locally, The Ring of Bells in Cheriton was particularly good. We've already recommended it to several of our friends!

Lovely area to visit and a unusual & charming property. We visisted in December . I Imagine it would be even better in the summer as there is great outside space to use.

We really loved it and would highly recommend the Wagon.

The wagon itself is a great treat and the surrounding countryside just fantastic. Besides, our car unfortunately broke down and the owners very kindly and very efficiently offered all the help they could - and not mentioning the fine pastries that they do at the farm....

We loved our time here. Perfect for couples or families with small children. The accommodation was spacious and of exceptional quality. Rob and Jean were very helpful and attentive hosts. The position of the wagon is stunning with amazing views all around and it's location in Devon means all areas of Dartmoor, Exmoor, North and South Devon are accessible by car. We look forward to returning soon.

This property is a true jem. As soon as we arrived we knew we had found something special. The wagons location is just excellent, being in easy reach via car to Dartmoor, North and South Devon's coast and even Cornwall. That's without all the little public footpaths dotted around the area. Lyford gorge is a must.....a very long walk but the views are a must see. Rocky found the stay fantastic too being of the four legged variety he found the wagons garden suited all his needs. the boneio in the dog bowl on arrival was enough to let him know he was on too something good. The whole stay surpassed are expectations and will definitely be booking up again

Was a wonderful wagon with spectacular views! Was warmly welcomed by Rob and Jean and we felt at home and couldn't get enough of the peace and quiet! Beautifully crafted wagon with high quality furnishings. We'll be returning later in the year!

Robert and Jean were excellent hosts and very welcoming to their Wagon. It was absolutely fantastic and exactly as the photos suggested. Quiet, peaceful, relaxing and just what we needed. The Wagon was of an excellent standard and very well equipped. The basket of goodies that welcomed us on arrival were most appreciated and a lovely touch. Robert and Jean made sure we were comfortable and warm despite the quite chilly weather and that we were ok and had no problems using the log fire. Our three day stay was just not long enough in this lovely Wagon and tranquil location so we are already looking to return again in May
