A magical retreat that's steeped in history and beautifully nestled on a working passenger station, set between the national parks of Exmoor and Dartmoor for scenic journeys into Devon.
  • Sleeps: 2
  • Bedroom: 1
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 1 night

Forming part of a historic station conversion, you’ll discover the Tarka Ticket Room along the scenic Tarka Line… a glistening gem for railway enthusiasts and lovers of idyllic scenery alike.

Running from Exeter to Barnstaple, the Tarka Line chugs along the soothing river valleys of the Yeo and Taw, meaning you can explore the unrivalled beauty of Devon completely at your leisure.

Just remember: you’ll have to leave your stylish retreat first!  And once you’ve settled into the welcoming, light-filled space, that could prove difficult.

For starters, there’s superb attention to detail throughout, making you feel immediately at home. The warming wood-burner and Smart TV take care of snuggly evenings in, while the huge feature window offers hours of idle entertainment, as you watch the comings and goings on the station platform.

There’s a cosy double bedroom to curl up in at the end of a long day of exploring (or simply doing nothing!) and an invigorating en-suite shower room to help you freshen up.

What else? You’re surrounded by options for romantic tree-strewn walks, so if you don’t feel like taking the train, just pack a picnic and head for Deer Park Wood. There’s a friendly café and farm shop achingly close by, too, so you can design your ideal break in whichever way you like.
