To the left you have the sumptuous king-size bed with beautiful linens and plenty of storage thanks to the cleverly designed alcove. The shower-room is also located at this end of the property.

You will discover the Bell Tent situated through the fields just 250 yards from The Loft. The Bell Tent has been beautifully furnished with a double bed and two sofas, it has a magical charm that really comes to life at night as all the fairy lights twinkle under the backdrop of the nights sky.

South Devon is renowned for the outdoor life! Jump in the car and within 20 minutes you can be on one of the many golden sandy beaches that this coast has been blessed with. There are a few local well-known ones that are also dog-friendly and offer a quieter day - be sure to check your welcome folder for more information.

If the beach is not on the agenda, then the scenery and beauty of the coast can also be enjoyed walking the coast paths, a favourite being the circular walk out of Newton Ferrers, and be sure to visit one of the well-known local pubs for a refreshing Devon cider or fish and chip supper.

If you come to this truly spectacular part of the world a simple must has to be a day enjoying Dartmoor National Park. Head to Avon Dam and follow the path up to the reservoir at the top where you will be rewarded with wonderous views of this rugged, unspoilt and beautiful land, with the friendly Dartmoor ponies being a delightful addition.
