The Details...

Down at the bottom of the wild garden in Devon’s Honeyside Down is The Bird Box. This rustic wooden cabin has been lovingly constructed among the trees and is the ideal romantic escape for two.

After walking up the stairs to one of the two wooden balconies, guests enter the holiday home into the living area. In here warm wool rugs and fur deer skins make for a cosy environment, as does the electric coal effect heater. There is a small table and chairs for eating culinary delights prepared in the kitchen, which comes complete with a small electric cooker with hob, oven, and grill, as well as a microwave, toaster, and fridge.

Heading up the wooden stairs leads to the bedroom with its custom built king size double bed, dressing table, and skylight windows looking out to the leafy canopy above. From here there is also an en-suite shower room with basin and WC and access to the second wooden balcony, with a bench and chairs to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.

The Bird Box also has access to the outdoor Canadian cedar wood hot tub, which sits underneath a large oak tree elsewhere in the garden. Guests from another holiday spot on site also have access to this, however, private slots can be booked with the accommodating host - who also provides a bottle of wine and sometimes Devonshire cream teas upon arrival. Guests can also upgrade to the silver and gold packages which include champagne.

Alternatively, supplies can be bought from the local shop which is only 10 minutes away. A little further still is the market town of Okehampton, which is brimming with independent shops, pubs, and cafes. The nearby Dartmoor Inn and Highwayman Inn come particularly highly recommended, while The Duke of York is great for food and dates back to the 15th Century.

Honeyside Down is ideally located for getting out and about exploring the beautiful Devon countryside. The old tramway leads all the way to the rolling hills of Dartmoor, while the slightly less adventurous can stroll to the heritage railway station and catch a steam train instead.
