About the property

Glorious countryside, peaceful self-catering in furnished, well-equipped lodge

BRAMBLES - a unique opportunity to stay in one of three really cosy log cabins at Highampton which lies between Hatherleigh and Holsworthy. Our lodges are constructed from 8" pine logs and are exceptionally warm and welcoming. We offer clean, comfortable accommodation that has views which are absolutely fantastic - right across miles of beautiful Devon countryside to Dartmoor in the distance. South facing with undercover patio, Brambles has it's own private track. Parking is on your own driveway alongside your lodge and there's a garden area for your picnics or for the children to play in. Our lodges are fully furnished for up to four people, and are centrally placed for both the north and south coasts of Devon, and for the North Cornwall Coast - Widemouth Bay and Bude being particular favourites.

Holiday for 7 nights or take a short break - our lodges take 4 people comfortably and can also accommodate a very young child in a toddler bed but this does make the second bedroom a little crowded so it would not suit everyone.

The recently updated kitchen has a fridge, freezer, electric oven with ceramic hob and a microwave and in the lounge there's a TV/DVD and superfast Wi-Fi throughout. There is a shower room with electric shower and the water is mains, so no problem with pressure! There are heaters in all rooms and a log/coal burner in the living area.

Superfast Wi-Fi, dog-friendly in Brambles and Buttercups, toy box with games for young children and a table-tennis table and swing-ball with equipment. The village of Hatherleigh is about 4 miles away with a good selection of cafes and shops. There's also a couple of pubs, supermarket + skatepark.

The lodges face south towards Dartmoor - with absolutely fantastic views. See our website for more photographs and details.

Highampton is a small village situated in Ruby country with it’s fantastic selection of trails for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. The village of Hatherleigh is about 4 miles away and has a good selection of cafes and shops. There’s also pubs, supermarket and a new skatepark. The bustling town of Okehampton is a further 7 miles away. In the opposite direction about 7 miles away lies the pretty market town of Holsworthy with the beautiful beaches of Bude a further 9 miles away.

We are centrally placed for all parts of Devon and Cornwall. The area is one of peace and tranquility, so if it's a quiet base you want for your holiday, then Dartmoor View Lodges is the place to be.

Highampton is a small village with a pub, village hall, school and visint post-office. Hatherleigh and Holsworthy are larger and have all the amenities you need. Our site is quiet and tranquil and wildlife is plentiful. In the early morning it is quite possible that you will see deer grazing and there are usually a lot of rabbits around and foxes pay the occasional visit. Birds thrive and we regularly see woodpeckers, tree creepers and buzzards even occasionally a kingfisher. Butterflies are also attracted by the many wild flowers that emerge in the spring.

About Andrew & Sally Walker

Recently relocated from Huddersfield in West Yorkshire where we ran a small business, we chose this fantastic location for the perfect home for us and our family plus it gives us the opportunity to provide fabulous self catering holidays.

Andrew & Sally Walker purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Andrew & Sally Walker chose Black Torrington

We have 3 genuine timber lodges to choose from - Bluebells, Buttercups or Brambles. Providing luxury self-catering, the lodges are well equipped and have a 4 star rating by our partner agent which guarantees good quality fittings and bedding. It also means we have to regularly update and maintain.

What makes this cabin unique

The location is the definition of peaceful and if you like wildlife, as we do, it really is perfect. We also get incredibly black nights as there is very little light pollution. It's also very well placed to explore Devon and Cornwall. Exeter is about 50 minutes away, Bude about 30 minutes. The site is surrounded by fields which is ideal for our daughters' horses and the views are dominated by the beauty of Dartmoor.

Lovely cabin, great place for dog (and humans)

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and well equipped cabin, plenty of space inside and out. A great and convenient base to go exploring from either by foot or in the car. Looking forward to coming back for another visit in the future.

Great autumn break

  • 4 of 5

Really cozy and comfy log cabin. Andrew and Sally were the perfect - unobtrusive but always there to ensure we had everything for a comfortable and relaxing stay. We were unfortunate with the weather but did manage to get a couple of sunny days when the natural beauty of this part of Devon really came out. Would love to go again.

Lovely wood cabin with everything you need in a great locality.

Had a very restful week enjoying the local pubs , resaurants and views.

Great that it was dog friendly with loads of room to take him for walks straight from the cabin.
