  • "What a fantastic retreat."

    The photo's do not do it justice. We feared that it was going to be one cabin of many, but it was completely isolated with the only neighbours being the ponies and sheep. The cabin is a luxury 'escape' that exudes quality in every respect. The craftsmanship, effort and time are represented in every detail in the property from the multi coloured paneling to the bespoke lighting, giving it that 'wow' factor. It has a completely 'chilled' vibe allowing those everyday stresses to ebb away. It is in a fantastic location allowing you to either hit the North Coast, Launceston or Okehampton in half an hour. The only negative is that we couldn't stay longer. Thank you for a superb stay, we will be back.

The property

Nestled in the charming village of Ashwater, Devon is this characterful, single-storey lodge aptly-named, The Great Escape.

Featuring an enviable location near the Dartmoor National Park, with underfloor heating throughout, this log cabin, The Great Escape, which is hand crafted with bespoke wooden walls, welcomes four guests, perfect for a family or group of friends seeking a peaceful escape.

After parking up, enter your new abode to be instantly impressed by the well-equipped kitchen, boasting everything you need to ensure a successful, self-catered stay; allow the budding chef to cook up a storm as you put your feet up in the inviting living/dining room, complete with Smart TV and a host of games, books and DVDs so you can enjoy cosying up for nights in with your loved ones.

Serve up your culinary delights at the dining table, or venture outside to the private decking area where you can savour an alfresco affair and marvel at your setting a little while longer.

Pop corks until the sun sets in the distance, then freshen up with use of the shower room before hunkering down in either the double or twin bedroom.

When morning comes, get ready to set out into your lovely location; pay a visit to Okehampton Castle, where you can explore the castle remains and admire views across the Dartmoor National Park, or head to RHS Garden Rosemoor, a delightful garden that spans 65 acres.

With Lydford Gorge, Roadford Lake Country Park and of course, the delights of the Dartmoor National Park itself, including an array of stunning landscapes, rugged tors and picturesque villages, you’ll never be short of things to see or do.

Experience all of this and more, with a stay at The Great Escape.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Holsworthy 8 miles; Bude 17 miles.

A delightfully rural village in the heart of West Devon’s green and undulating countryside. Surrounded by lush meadows, high hedgerows, wooded valleys and abundant wildlife, the village and area is popular with those visitors seeking to experience a true taste of country life. Roadford Lake with its sailing, fishing and visitors’ centre is just 4 miles, while the rolling surf, night life and sandy beaches at the closest resort of Bude, are within 20 miles. The RHS Garden at Rosemoor, the Dartington Glass Factory, and the rugged tors and open spaces of Dartmoor also make superb days out and can all be reached in under 40 minutes. If heading for Dartmoor look out for the pretty moorland villages of Belstone and Sticklepath - they will take your breath away. Those seeking a real countryside experience away from the bustle of modern living need look no further.
