This substantial detached log cabin is situated in an idyllic spot with magnificent views over the Tamar Valley, a wonderful place to escape and enjoy simple living in peace and quiet.

Perfectly positioned for touring Devon and Cornwall, a short drive of Tavistock and the dramatic Dartmoor National Park, renowned for its rugged scenery, tors and quaint villages. The historic town offers a pannier market, restaurants, cinema, swimming pool complex, park and walks beside the River Tavy and canal. Morwellham Quay is just 6 miles away and here you can visit and see what was once one of the busiest ports in Britain and where the BBC2 TV documentary series Edwardian Farm was filmed. Discover the heritage of the Tamar Valley nearby and the abundance of Wildlife it has to offer. You may be lucky to see the fallow deer wandering through the valley, the fox's playing in the fields, catch a glimpse of a buzzard in flight or hear the distinct woodpecker in the trees. Visit one of many National Trust properties including Cotehele House, Lydford Gorge and Buckland Abbey with both the north and south coasts easily accessible.

Set in the grounds of the owner’s home, this stunning log cabin offers simple, yet comfortable holiday accommodation in complete privacy. Stepping into the unique cabin you have a cosy bedroom/lounge with a double bed, wood burner and comfortable seating area with Smart TV and radio. Walk outside, yet undercover around the side of the lodge and a door re-enters you into a separate part of the cabin to a compact kitchenette area with a step down to a prep area with fridge with ice compartment, sink and microwave, just off the kitchenette is a shower cubicle and separate WC.

Heading outside, the log cabin has a covered porch area with rattan garden furniture and pretty outside lighting, as well as sensor lighting to guide your way to and from the gated off-road parking area. Your own large lawn area directly outside has superb views across the Tamar Valley and a detached summer house with seating inside and loungers outside with charcoal BBQ. A perfect place to sit back, relax and soak up the serenity of the area. Off-road gated parking for 2 cars.

Fab cabin with lovely views. Dogs loved the garden and freedom. Didnt realise there wasnt a cooker only microwave and barbecue but not a problem. Would go back.

A truly unique and beautiful place, which we did not want to leave. We loved sitting on the veranda wrapped in blankets, as it got dark, watching the stars appear. No sounds, other than nature. My dog thought it was Heaven and so did we !
