The Details...

On the Devon coast, not so far from the village of Holbeton, you will find The Beach Hut… at least, if you are shown where it is. A remote little place with a stretch of beach all to itself, it’s unlikely you would stumble upon it, but that’s just what makes this peaceful Westcountry retreat so special.

With its tall windows offering a view straight out to sea, The Beach Hut is more than its name suggests. Outside, a wood-fired hot tub is a luxurious touch, and the isolated location – you reach the hut by walking down a steep cliff path – means privacy is assured. All you will hear is the sound of the waves crashing down on the nearby rocks. Outside there is a compost toilet and an open air shower.

Inside, the hut is cosy and inviting. A wooden dining table sits beside a simple but well-equipped kitchen – all the crockery, cutlery and pans you will need are provided, along with a sink and gas hob, and you’ll be glad to see your tea, coffee, milk and sugar is also there waiting.

The barbecue outside gives you yet more dining options… after all, it would be a shame not to make the most of the sea air. You can arrange for an organic barbecue box with all you will need, or a special Devon Meal Hamper to see you through your first day with everything from breakfast basics to a simple evening meal with wine.

There’s a certain romance about The Beach Hut, making it a perfect place to spend some time together. Look up and you’ll see the double bed accessed via a ladder, nestled under the sloping roof. A woodburner keeps things toasty inside, so no worries about being cold, and it also takes care of the hot water for the shower (just outside the door).

Plymouth lies around 9 miles west and is the nearest large city, incorporating attractions like the Marine Aquarium and National Trust property Saltram House. Head north and you will soon be in Dartmoor territory. The huge National Park spreads out towards the Cornish border and the Tamar Valley, around 30 minutes’ drive away, forming the green heart of the county.

Holbeton village itself is pretty and secluded, with a couple of pubs and a local store. Several fine beaches, Mothecombe and Challaborough among them, are close by too.

Rediscover the Devon coast and take a break at The Beach Hut. Intimate and invigorating, it is sure to charm you.
