Luxury wooden cabins in the stunning North Devon countryside; the perfect setting for a relaxing break away from all the stresses of life.

Hemmed by ferns and yellow flag irises, the picturesque lake at Coastal Cabins serves as a tranquil centrepiece for one of North Devon's most intriguing glamping getaways. The titular cabins that occupy this stunningly wild yet somehow manicured space blend seamlessly into their surroundings (with the odd decorative nod to the seaside just down the road). Beyond the two-acre field lies the surrounding Hartland Peninsula, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s the perfect starting place for exploring the North Devon coast.

Set just a mile and a half from the cliff-top trails of the South West Coast Path (with the nearest accessible beach just a touch further), Coastal Cabins really does have a location to match the name. It’s difficult to spend a day here without strolling along one beach or other. Even if you venture inland to nose about the shops of Hartland village, the beach scenes in the White Hare Gallery and the postcards in the charming shops will have you heading back out to the seaside once more. And rightfully so. The rocky headlands and wildflower fringed streams are quite a sight to behold. Especially when summer is in its full, sunny swing.

The glamping site itself comprises 10 cabins in total, half of which are suited to families, with an extra set of bunk beds, while the other half have king-sized beds and a sofa bed, suiting them to couples or those with younger children. Inside, they are divided into three areas: the sleeping and living space, an en suite shower room and a modern kitchenette with an oven, sink, fridge and everything you need to whip up a quick meal. The whitewashed cladding and the double-glazed windows in each cabin lend them a spacious, airy feel, while a circular window in the centre of the ceiling pools in extra daylight. In all, they’re an innovative, chic new take on the traditional beach huts of old.

Aside from the cabins there's also a hexagonal barbecue hut, where comfortable seating encircles a central fire making for a fantastic social space, while the recent introduction of an exclusive 'Wild Spa' Hot Tub area, which can be hired by the hour, adds a little extra luxury. It's quite the place to relax when you've finally put down your bucket and spade and set aside some 'me' time. Sitting in the hot tub is a fair bit warmer than swimming in the sea too.

Social Distancing Measures

Our cabins are widely spaced out at approximately 5 metres apart.  There are just 10 cabins in a 3 acre field so there is plenty of space.  All of our cabins have their own en-suite shower rooms with WC and they also have their own kitchenettes.  There are no communal washing facilities.  We also offer completely contactless arrivals and departures.  Our cabins will be thoroughly deep cleaned in between guest arrivals by a professional cleaning company.  Our hot tub area is only available for private hire and the booking times are very spaced out (one session per day) to allow time for thorough cleaning in between bookings.  Please note that for the 2020 season the BBQ cabin will be closed as this is a communal facility.  Each cabin will instead have its own small BBQ for personal use.
