A homely, handcrafted haven, surrounded by whispering trees and perfectly positioned for exploring both Devon and Dorset.
  • Sleeps: 4
  • Bedrooms: 2
  • Bathroom: 1
  • Minimum stay: 2-3 nights

You’ll find the bespoke-crafted cabin@greensleeves dreamily positioned at the end of a farm track in Harcombe Valley – an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty – surrounded by mature trees, open green fields, and a sparkling stream.

Though you’ll feel miles away from civilisation, you’ll be achingly close to both the seaside at Lyme Regis and the bustling Devon town of Axminster, making this a retreat to suit just about every holiday taste!

Sleeping up to four people, you can bring the family along, or rope in a small group of friends to enjoy this break with you.  There’s a cosy ground floor bedroom for those who don’t like stairs, complete with a kingsize bed (or two singles if you prefer), while the mezzanine is also home to a comfy kingsize bed. You’ll find the bathroom, handily equipped with a refreshing power shower, on the ground floor too.

Snoozing arrangements sorted, simply head for the roomy open-plan living space to catch up in comfort. There are snug sofas to laze on, and a wood-burning stove to tell stories around by evening (though if you get bored, there’s also a Freeview TV, free WiFi, and an app-controlled DAB radio to keep you company).

Generous kitchen facilities include a double oven with hob, microwave, and an under-counter fridge, and there’s a dining table and chairs for you to enjoy the fruits of your culinary labours.

On sunnier evenings however, you might prefer to grab a drink and head through the huge glazed doors onto the furnished decking. Why not fire up the gas barbecue for a sizzling supper while you’re there, and take in some of that amazing country scenery by blazing sunset?

With so much to see and do in every direction, be warned: it won’t be easy to decide just what you’re going to do with the days ahead. You could start by taking an invigorating walking trail – both the South West Coastal Path and the Liberty Trail are easily accessed from the cabin.
