This studio-style eco pod offers a romantic retreat for a coastal-loving couple and up to three canine companions. Use it as a base for discovering the border between North Devon and Cornwall, or simply sit back and enjoy panoramic views across the coastline to Lundy Island and beyond.
One of three environmentally sensitive holiday homes on an organic dairy farm close to the South West Coast Path, this idyllic hideaway will captivate couples longing to escape the everyday. Simple but oh-so-stylish, it features a bespoke lounge/kitchen/dining/sleeping area where the focus is wholly on together-time – there’s ample room to lounge, cook and eat, with a wood burner adding a romantic glow to laid-back evenings in front of the Smart TV. When the day is done, a striking king-size bed beckons; in the morning you can wake up to beautiful countryside and coastal views. At the opposite end of the property is an ultra-chic shower room. Doors from both the bedroom and kitchen areas lead out onto a private terrace where there’s home-grown oak furniture so you can soak up stunning sunsets, fire up the BBQ or gaze at the night sky by the glow of the firepit. A fully enclosed lawn area gives peace of mind to guests holidaying with four-pawed pals, and a gate from here allows access to 5 acres of organic grassland. Take a gentle stroll around the parish of Morwenstow and you’ll find tea rooms, an ancient inn and a historic church once presided over by the eccentric 1800s parson and poet Robert Stephen Hawker. On the nearby cliff edge he famously built a refuge – Hawkers Hut – from driftwood and the timbers of wrecked ships; it’s now the smallest National Trust building to be visited in England. Just north, the Marsland valley is a magical mix of woodland, coastline and butterfly-filled meadows which straddles the Devon-Cornwall border. To the south, Bude (9 miles) is one of North Cornwall’s premier coastal towns with spotless beaches and excellent eateries.
