Relax with serene views, among the oaks.

A dog-friendly rural retreat near Dartmoor and the beach.

Built within the grounds of Great Burrow are two unique and secluded places to stay in peaceful West Devon countryside, surrounded by footpaths. One a luxurious cabin, the other a cosy, cob cottage both with private hot tubs.

Great Burrow Stables

Bijoux chic interior design deluxe cabin with wooden screen bed and sink and crittal style bijoux interior

Great Burrow Stables is our brand new venture!
After years of keeping chickens in the old stables, we have finally converted this really special peaceful spot into a romantic, stunning space. We’ve kept the large covered deck and added a veranda with an outdoor roll top bath. (the chickens have moved but still visit occasionally!) Sleeps 2, possibly 3.

Great Burrow Cottage


Great Burrow Cottage is a detached former Linhay or ‘lean-to’.
Made of ancient cob and stone, beautifully converted, its ideal as a relaxing retreat for couples or a great base for an active family holiday.
Laze in the garden hammock or in the wood-fired hot tub with views through the willows to Dartmoor. Sleeps up to 5.

Great Burrow Farm, our house, was built in the 16th Century most probably as a Devon long house. Made of cob and stone, with a thatched roof, it began as a single room shared by both people and cows. Although no longer a farm it is surrounded by fields, mostly stocked with sheep, some cows, and our house is still separated from its long barn by a cobbled covered passageway with views under the oaks to Dartmoor’s wild northern Tors.  

Our aims are to be as sustainable as possible and respect where we live by striving for a low environmental footprint.

I so enjoyed my stay at Great Burrow Stables! It was exactly what I’d hoped for – a chance to reconnect with nature, make time for myself and explore Dartmoor. The cabin was beautiful – I felt calm, safe and surrounded by trees and birds. Fantastic.

A week after our stay and going back to work with a bump. We all like our own special place but this is one to share, already sent links to a number of friends along with word of mouth all week. Difficult what else to say when the name says it all, GREAT Burrow Cottage!

Great Burrow cottage, is simply a beautiful tranquil paradise. We stayed for two nights, but I could easily spend the rest of my life there. Within minutes, you feel totally at home. Every window has a beautiful view of nature, woods, pond and moor,.. like picture frames. Great facilities, lovely warm log burner fire in the evenings, a hot tub and Sauna‚Ķ total relaxation, with just the sound of birds or a distant sheep. This picturesque cottage is good for the soul …
