The Cabin @ Burton Hall

A one bedroom wooden cabin set in its own garden situated within the grounds of historic Burton Hall. The Cabin enjoys stunning views across the old town of North Tawton to Dartmoor. There is an open plan living room with comfortable corner settee and a flat screen television and DVD player. There is a wood burning stove (initial basket of logs included) for those chilly evenings as well as gas central heating.The well equipped kitchen has a dining table overlooking the garden. The comfortable double bedroom is off the living room with plenty of storage space.

Outside there is a seating area where you can enjoy alfresco meals with a BBQ for sunny days.

This is an ideal place for getting away from it all and enjoy the peaceful setting at one with nature. There are lovely walks on the doorstep and plenty of gardens and National Trust properties to enjoy close by.

The East Wing apartment within Burton Hall enables couples or families to travel together and rent both properties.

About the property

Burton Hall Self Catering

Burton Hall is a large attractive wooden house transported from Norway in the 1870’s by a local Wool Mill owner. It is set in 1.4 acres of garden with lovely views over the town and to Dartmoor. Having started life as a family home, Burton Hall went on to be a successful hotel, then a country club and now back to being a family home.

We have 2 properties available for short breaks, weekend and longer stays - a one bedroom wooden Cabin and a two bedroom self contained Apartment situated in the East Wing of Burton Hall. Both have garden areas and are well equipped to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Views from the Cabin and the East Wing are stunning across the old town to Dartmoor.

Surrounded by fields with far reaching views to Dartmoor, the Cabin and Apartment offer peaceful ‘away from it all’ experience attracting a wide variety of birds, bees and butterflies. This location is perfect for cycling and walking, with several walks on the doorstep, including the Tarka trail.

A short walk down the hill brings you into the old town of North Tawton where you will find everyday amenities including a Spar, post office, chemist, deli/tea room, gift shop, three pubs with food menus and an award winning fish and chip shop. The market towns of Okehampton, Crediton and Hatherleigh are within easy reach where there are supermarkets, independent shops, open air markets and leisure centres. The lovely cathedral city of Exeter is 20 miles away.

Burton Hall is ideally situated between the craggy tors of Dartmoor and the beautiful sandy beaches and surf of the North Devon & Cornwall coast with many delightful little villages dotted throughout the area. There are several excellent coarse fishing lakes and rivers, golf courses, and a number of National Trust properties and gardens, including RHS Rosemoor, within easy reach. There are few better spots from which to experience the joys of beautiful Devon.

About Jean Trewhitt

Martin and I moved to Burton Hall in 2013 after living in Bristol for over 30 years. When we retired we wanted to move to a rural area and have a project - we have done both of those things at Burton Hall!

We both like walking and have discovered lots of local walks. We enjoy feeding and watching the birds in our garden, and relish the peace and quiet of the countryside.

Jean Trewhitt purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Jean Trewhitt chose North Tawton

We were looking for a suitable property in Devon which would provide accommodation for ourselves and potential for developing holiday lets. Burton Hall offered us a unique project and scope to have 2 self catering units - the Cabin and the ground floor Apartment

Burton Hall and The Cabin are in a lovely setting with stunning views across the old town to Dartmoor. Whilst enjoying a peaceful rural setting it is only 5 minutes walk down the hill to shops and local amenities in the small town of North Tawton.

We enjoy the peace and quiet of the location and ease of access to local walks on our doorstep. Dartmoor and Fingle woods are only a short drive away. We enjoy visiting the market towns of Hatherleigh, Okehampton, Crediton and Tavistock.

What makes this cabin unique

Whilst enjoying stunning views across to Dartmoor in a peaceful setting, Burton Hall is only a 5 minute walk from the small town.

Cabin & Ground Floor Apartment offers scope for families or friends to rent together

There are several local walks and cycle routes on our doorstep.

The Tors of Dartmoor are easily accessed via Okehampton, Belstone, Chagford and Sticklepath, a short drive away.

Being based in Mid Devon enables you to reach the North Devon and Cornwall coast, South Devon and the city of Exeter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our third stay in this cosy cabin - this time we needed our wellies & waterproofs! But roaring log fire always raises spirits. Thanks again.

We have enjoyed our stay very much, we had a lovely welcome when we arrived from Jean & a lovely surprise of scones, jam & cream

The Cabin is lovely & very peaceful in a super setting, it was very clean & everything was very nicely presented.

Can't wait to stay again.

Perfect spot for what we needed. The whole process was so simple. And the scones with jam and cream on arrival were a lovely touch, thank you.

Lovely shed!

  • 4 of 5

Lovely shed for a weekend away

Not as clean as expected

The weather didn't help but it never really got cosy....glad we brought a blanket!

Lovely views and visits from birds, squirrels and rabbits! No cows though 😕

Would love to stay in the summer and enjoy the views sitting outside.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback which is always appreciated. Glad you enjoyed the wildlife by the Cabin, there's often sheep but I'm afraid never cows! The weather was exceptionally cold as guests usually find the cabin warm and cosy. Come back and stay in the summer! (Just to add for people reading this review it is a Cabin not a shed!!)
