Overview

About the property

1 bed woodland retreat boutique barn

The Hide is luxury 1 bed love nest on the edge of Dartmoor in the picturesque Teign Valley with a private woodland hot tub. Perfect for a romantic getaway, exploring the wonders of Dartmoor or just to simply relax. Set in a peaceful rural woodland setting with wildlife in abundance you can really feel as though you are a million miles away. Watch the rare birds from your window and wait for wild deer to graze right outside, this really is the ultimate rural retreat. Wind down outside in the relaxing private SwimSpa available for use all year round. The Hide can sleep two people comfortably but we can cater for a young child.

The Hide is situated between the ‘chocolate box’ villages of Bridford and Dunsford and just 7 miles from the cathedral city of Exeter and approx 10 miles from the South Devon coast.

The Hide is a perfect location to explore rustic Dartmoor (England’s biggest National Park), with an overwhelming number of beautiful walks in the area. There are plenty of Dartmoor Tors to climb. The nearest easily climbable tor is Heltor Rock which is approximately 2 miles away near the village of Bridford. Just a half mile past Heltor Rock on the same road is the famous Blackingstone Rock which is easily climbable. (There's even a Victorian ladder to help you to the top.) Go two miles beyond Blackingstone Rock and you arrive at Mortonhampstead known as the 'gateway' to the high moor. The high moor has 100s of other tors and is home to many of Dartmoor's Ancient Settlements.

The cathedral city of Exeter is approximately 7 miles away with great shops, restaurants and bars to offer.

Other attractions include Canonteign Falls (England’s highest waterfall), Haldon Forest with extensive walk and cycle routes and fishing in the local Kennick, Trenchford & Tottiford Lakes.

Lovely stay in a Luxury cabin

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed at the hide for three nights, from the point of booking to the actual stay it was so well organised we got sent very clear instructions so it made it easy to find. The welcome pack with all the information was really useful and gave us a good base of what to do including where to eat and where the local shops were!! We really recommend the manor inn as the food and service was amazing!

The hide was so clean and we couldn't fault it one bit the bed was comfortable the decor was clean and modern and the hot tub really made it. We will be recommending it to friends and family and would definitely stay here again. Thank you

Stunning accommodation in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little hideaway, on the edge of the National Park, its absolutely perfect for a weekend away. Lovely walks on the doorstep, the owners have highlighted a few which are well worth doing and really helpful to get you going. We took our 6 month old, and our dog and the accommodation was perfect for both! Dogs are welcome, but it doesn't feel "doggy dirty", it's clean, fresh with lovely detail. A note to parents wanting to take an infant the bedroom isn't completely separate from the living quarters, however although upon arrival I had worried about getting the little one to sleep with cooking etc. going on close by it was actually fine. Finally whilst we had amazing weather, the log burner and other details mean it's set up for bad weather too, in fact it would be very cosy and comfortable. A great find, we don't tend to come back to places, but here I think we might!

Remote romantic stay for two

  • 5 of 5

Very peaceful location ideal for a getaway from 21st century life, Although the barn itself is very contemporary. Lovely welcome gifts, hot hottub very clean and tidy. Personally we couldn't stay here for a week but for 3-4 nights fantastic. We went for some proper R&R and it didn't disappoint, for the walkers/hikers out there this is a fab location. Would like to thank Lizzie for leaving us to it, this is what we wanted but also knew she was only a phone call away. Plenty of towels, loo roll, tea towel, washing up liquid, other than food and drink all is supplied. Will defo be back.

Perfect little hideaway for two, great food and walks locally

  • 5 of 5

The Hide is just the perfect place to get away from it all. You feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. It is beautifully decorated with everything you need, including a wonderful welcome basket of goodies. The bed was really comfortable and the bed linen was gorgeous. The bathroom is really clean and modern and the shower was good too! The woodburner was lovely and we enjoyed an afternoon sitting in the hot tub even though the weather wasn't the best. A selection of DVDs for wet weather viewing. Our dogs came with us and having the stair gate to keep them separate if they were muddy was a brilliant idea. As for food the Bridford Inn was excellent (we went there twice - the seafood sharing platter starter was fantastic) we also ate at the Manor Inn which was really good too - and both only a short distance away.

Great walking for the dogs - Finkley Bridge was brilliant, parked up at the pub and walked along the river through the valley, you then have 2 options either back along the other side of the river or if you are feeling energetic the climb up to Castle Drogo and walk back along the top of the valley to enjoy a welcome drink at the end (the food did look good but we didn't eat there).

Overall a really lovely place to get away from it all.

Clean, private, functional, peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Very impressed with the Hide.

Very clean and cosy. Great place to spend a nice private few days with the wife for valentines.

The gate was a little awkward to find but this was a minor point. (I had put "the hide dartmoor" in Google sat nav and it took me next door. The gate your looking for is a little further on the right and diagonal to the road)

Decor, facilities and the whole apartment was of a high standard. Well heated with plenty of hot water and clean towels.

Will definitely be going back maybe for a summer stay.
