Log Cabin with use of Pool



Updated: 31-Aug-2016
Log Cabin in Forton, Nr.Chard, Somerset - Woodland Setting 9 miles to Lyme Regis Beach

Nestled into the South Coast Countryside in South Somerset, bordering both Devon & Dorset Counties is this unique rural log cabin retreat. This quiet, level oak woodland site is set in 8.5 acres of parkland naturally screened by rhododendrons amongst the mature oaks, beeches & birches. From the tranquil setting of your own log cabin, you can discover the unique charm of a holiday in beautiful woodland. Here the delights of the outdoor life are on your doorstep, discover the wealth of wildlife especially Rabbits, Pheasants, Buzzards, Woodpeckers and even Roe Deer (if you are quiet). Children are occupied with a play area and a giant trampoline complete with safety enclosure netting, table tennis table plus the abundance of safe cycle and walking tracks within the park to explore and play safely. The woods are great for den building. We also have our own outdoor heated swimming pool (82 degrees F) which is positioned in a sun trap complimented with sun loungers.

Fantastic Break!

The log cabin is beautifully finished, and very comfortable. Set in a secluded forest it provided the perfect family break and was excellent for our two dogs. We Will definitely be returning to explore the area further as there is just so much to see and do!

Great relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in roe deer cabin, and could have stayed much longer. Helen and Richard were very welcoming hosts, and a source of information for interesting walks and days out. The cabin was very comfortable and clean, and the site was well maintained. One suggestion I have would be to replace the dishwasher with a washing machine and tumble dryer, as walking in the local woods and lanes is quite boggy even in a good summer as we are having now. Recommend days out to lyme regis and west bay (where broadchurch was filmed). Very cheap long stay parking in both resorts only ?1.70 for a full day. Also Perry's cider mill is good and set in a lovely village. The Poppe inn is about 40 mins walk away, and is open all day, and is dog friendly. Old Rosie cider recommended . Not cheap but very effective.
