BUTTERCUPS - a unique opportunity to stay in one of three really cosy log cabins at Highampton which lies between Hatherleigh and Holsworthy. Our lodges are constructed from 8" pine logs and are exceptionally warm and welcoming. We offer clean, comfortable accommodation that has views which are absolutely fantastic - right across miles of beautiful Devon countryside to Dartmoor in the distance. South facing with undercover patio. Parking on your own driveway alongside your lodge and garden area for your picnics or for the children to play in. Our lodges are fully furnished for up to four people, and are centrally placed for both the north and south coasts of Devon, and for the North Cornwall Coast - Widemouth Bay and Bude being particular favourites.
Holiday for 7 nights or take a short break - our lodges take 4 people comfortably and can also accommodate a very young child in a toddler bed but this does make the second bedroom a little crowded so it would not suit everyone.
The recently updated kitchen has a fridge, freezer, electric oven with ceramic hob and a microwave and in the lounge there's a TV/DVD and superfast Wi-Fi throughout. The upgrade to the shower room was completed in 2017 - there's an electric shower and the water is mains, so no problem with pressure! There are heaters in all rooms and a log/coal burner in the living area. The veranda was replaced during October 2017.
'Superfast' WiFi, dog-friendly in Brambles and Buttercups, toy box with games for young children and a table-tennis table and swing-ball with equipment. The village of Hatherleigh is about 4 miles away with a good selection of cafes and shops. There's also a couple of pubs, supermarket + skatepark.
The lodges face south towards Dartmoor - with absolutely fantastic views. See our website for more photographs and details.

Highampton is a small village with a pub, school, village hall and visiting post office. Hatherleigh and Holsworthy are larger and have all the amenities you need. Our site is quiet and tranquil and wildlife is plentiful. In the early morning it is quite possible that you will see deer grazing and there are usually a lot of rabbits around and foxes pay the occasional visit. Birds thrive and we regularly see woodpeckers, tree creepers and buzzards even occasionally a kingfisher. Butterflies are also attracted by the many wild flowers that emerge in the spring.
