The Beach Hut (sleeps 2)

Our wonderful little beach hut is available to rent for 2 night weekend & mid-week breaks during the warmer months. Situated on our isolated, totally private cove, the beach hut offers the chance to really escape for a few days away from it all!

Beach Self-Catering Cottages


Where else can you enjoy your own private beach, totally isolated down a steep cliff path, with the most amazing views of the stunning South Devon coast and out to sea? Imagine lighting up the BBQ, cracking open a bottle of wine and just chilling out listening to the sounds of the waves crashing on the rocks...

The beach hut has a double bed that you climb up a ladder to get to, a large table with bench seats, double gas hob and a sink. The small kitchen area has all the pots, pans, crockery and cutlery that you need for your stay. There is running water, but no electricity - so there are a few solar powered lights (with some windup lanterns as back up) and a camping cool box for your food. The hut has a small woodburner inside, so if the evening turns chilly you will be still be toasty and warm indoors. The woodburner has a small back boiler on it which provides hot water for the outside shower.

Outside there is a fantastic woodfired hot tub for you to relax in at the end of a hard day playing on the beach and swimming! Just light up the woodburner attached and keep it fed for a few hours and the hot tub will be ready for use... lovely! There is a compost toilet in the outside shed and a simple outside shower as well (with hot water provided from the back boiler on the woodburner in the Hut).

Bed linen and hand towels are all provided (but please bring your own large beach towels), as well as tea-towels and environmentally friendly cleaning materials. There is also a supply of recycled paper toilet rolls, salt & pepper, cooking oil, Fair Trade organic tea, coffee, sugar and long life milk. Logs are provided in the outside store, but please do collect any driftwood to add to the pile!

Access to the Beach Hut is from Carswell Farm (where you can park your car) and then you have a 15 minute walk, including a steep path down to the cove. There is no access for vehicles, so you will need to carry everything you want in a rucksack and wear sturdy footwear.

We are offering an optional 'Devon Meal Hamper' which we will put in the beach hut for you if you don't want to worry about bringing the basics. This is enough for the first night and morning and includes milk, muesli, eggs, bread, butter, marmalade, a simple evening meal for 2 (meat and vegetarian options) and a bottle of wine. The cost is £45 - please contact us for more details. We are also now offering an organic BBQ Box which provides all you need for a delicious BBQ. The cost is £35 - please contact us for more details.

Due to the remote location and difficult access, I'm afraid that children under 18 and dogs are not allowed.

WE ARE NOW FULL FOR 2014. BOOKINGS ARE BEING TAKEN FOR 2015.

The price for 2015 is £550 for 2 nights and this can either be from 4pm on Friday until 4pm on Sunday, or from 4pm on Monday until 4pm on Wednesday. Open from March to October (but not during school holidays).

SPECIAL 3 night offer! We are now offering guests the chance to extend their stay to 3 nights for an extra £100, leaving at 10am the following morning - just ask for more details...
