Hidden amongst the deep lanes of West Devon is a pretty and private off-grid sanctuary.
Designed to offer cosy and comfortable, year round accommodation, Devon Dens comes complete with an extraordinary solid timber cabin which sleeps up to four.
This unique wooden den is surrounded by woodland, wildlife and starry skies. Perfect for escaping from the hullabaloo. So, if you're seeking a tech-free break enjoying local walks or just time to sit and read, then this place will delight you.
Thank you Jo for the lovely stay, the five of us and the dog had so much fun! The stream was a wonderful place to explore and the wilderness around us made for a perfect setting. We BBQ'd all but one meal over the five nights....I was in my element! We made special memories and will definitely be back againBrad
A friend and I had the most amazing time in this beautiful cabin! The setting is perfect and the babbling brook and birdsong is the best soundtrack ever...Lots of blues guitar on the porch and by the fire! Will definitely return! Highly recommend this beautiful placePaul
I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Our stay was so much more than we could have hoped for. Our only regret is we didn't book for longer but we will definitely be back.Nicola
This place is spot on if you are looking for a genuine eco getaway. They are the real deal, passionate about the environment, even down to all the timber being sourced within a 15 mile radius. Every little design detail is perfect too, and the setting could not be better. The stars at night were awesomely bright too. Heaven.Kim
Just back from the most incredible nights stay in a Devon Den! Cannot recommend this place enough. If you want a total escape with complete rest and relaxation, then this is a must for you! First class, hand crafted little piece of heaven nestled in the Devon countryside.....it was so hard to leave!Tiffany
We had a perfect weekend tucked away from the rest of civilisation. We loved it so much we're coming back next month for another three days! You've thought of everything to make a stay as comfortable as possible and it was completely delightful; a lovely way to spend our anniversary.Sally
A stunning getaway in a beautifully handcrafted cabin. Everything has been thought about, down to the bunch of dried herbs in case you fancy making your glamping experience a gourmet one. The hot shower was too good to leave. We had a fantastic night off-grid and we are definitely coming back!Amanda
Had a lovely peaceful night away. Could have stayed indefinitely. Everything was thought about and the woodburner was so warm and kept us toasty all night. The cabin is beautiful, the work put in is amazing. A wonderful place right on our doorstep that felt like the only place on earth.David
Devon Dens is a little woodland treat set in two acres of woodland, in one of the least light-polluted areas in England. The site is open year round, and is private and south facing with a delightful stream babbling away - perfect for paddling. Located just eight miles from Dartmoor, we are surrounded by extraordinary countryside with lots of walks taking in a proper local pub and delightful villages. The site is owned by Jo Henderson and Ben Ranson, founders of Barrel Top Wagons - a Devon based company making extraordinary timber structures from sustainable local wood.
The eco ethos runs through both businesses, and Devon Dens is run very much with an intention for guests to holiday with a light foot print. Power is supplied by solar, toilets are compost, and grey water is treated through reed beds. Much is done to encourage wildlife and biodiversity.
We're big on food, and are keen as mustard to introduce you to the delights on offer in the area. Lovely local produce can be ordered - from wine and cider to bacon, sausages and eggs, veg, apple juice and cheese. The kitchen garden is also taking shape, and we love supplying guests with home grown goodies whenever possible.
With no WiFi or phone signal, this is the perfect place to escape from this sometimes crazy world, to stop, breathe, read, rest, walk, eat and reconnect. With nature, with loved ones and WITH YOURSELF.
This sweet wooden cabin sleeps up to four (five at a push if there are small ones and you're happy to cosy up - just ask) with an amazing outdoor shower, private compost loo, fantastic fire pit area with log table, and everything you need for a stress free, tech-free break.
Here's what's in The Den:
In spring 2018, our new cabin will be ready to welcome guests. Sleeping up to six in a double bedroom, on the mezzanine and on a double sofa bed, with an indoor bathroom, spacious relaxing area, kitchenette, top drawer solar set up and private decking area for the all-important fire pit.
This is going to be a beautiful space, looking out over the pond and reed beds, with everything you could possibly need for an off-grid digital detox.
