  • "Myself and a friend stayed at Erme for 3 nights."

    The hosts were lovely, friendly and extremely kind. They done way more than what a host is obligated to do and I couldn't be more thankful. The facilities were lovely and clean. And we enjoyed seeing the chickens and dogs when they came to visit. It's a lovely quiet place with a stunning view. With walks and beaches close by. I would definitely stay again with a group of friends or family. Thank you to Kim and Ant for a lovely stay!

  • "Thank you for a fabulous stay!"

    The cabin is beautifully unique and we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. We also loved the added Christmas decorations! We wanted somewhere quiet and away from our usual city life. This was a lovely bit of escapism and just the treat for us and our two children. My son particularly enjoyed it when the chickens came to visit! The time and effort that has gone into this cabin is truly outstanding. It felt magical staying here and I can’t compliment it enough! With the code given before arrival, we were able to just get straight on with our break away. Lights and heat were on upon our arrival, with a little welcome note, fresh eggs and milk. We really did have a lovely stay and we would 100% recommend this wonderful cabin.

  • "What a lovely lovely wholesome stay we had here."

    We came away for a few nights with our two children…my husband booked it as a birthday treat just at the beginning of December. The wooden lodge was beautiful, so cosy and warm as soon as we arrived. The hosts (who are a lovely family of 5) greeted us and helped set up the hot tub on arrival which heated up just lovely! The lodge was so clean and had everything we needed for a few nights away. The beds were also very comfy and the kids loved the whole set up! The setting was even better, peaceful with only the sounds of a few owls and we even spotted some deer over in the hill. The hosts also popped over on the morning of my birthday with a bottle of fizz and balloons which was so nice. Kim was always a message or phone call away and gave us some great recommendations for places to visit and eat/drink at! We loved Mothecombe beach and had a very good Sunday lunch at the ship inn at nosa mayo. We had some lovely walks and even took a drive in down to salcombe which was very nice too. The weather was frosty and cold and the lodge felt so festive and cosy. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much. Highly recommend :)

    They loved the cabin and the sleeping arrangements and we all enjoyed the fantastic views and wildlife from sitting in the hot tub. The cabin is extremely cosy, something we needn’t have worried about. Will 100% come back.

    We made use off the private hot tub which again looks out onto the views of the area which is very peaceful and relaxing. The hosts were on hand straight away if we ever needed anything and provided a hamper at an additional cost which was worth the money! Will definitely visit again as we had such a lovely time and also to visit Bea which made stay even better as we were missing our 3 dogs at home!

    Thank you for the lovely review. We’re really pleased you had a good stay. We hope to see you again! Thanks Kim, Ant and Bea Property Owner

  • "This is an amazing little property in a fantastic location."

    The chalet is delightful; quirky and cozy with everything you could want for a delightful stay. It is ideally placed for exploring lovely south Devon, and a beautiful retreat to come back to after a day's sightseeing. Sadly, the weather wasn't kind to us so using the hot tub wasn't an option, but we will certainly return at some stage to make sure we do! Thank you Kim and Ant for everything you did to make us welcome; from the thoughtful local eggs and milk to the fresh flowers on our arrival. We would certainly recommend this beautiful property in a stunning location to anyone wanting a "get away from it all" break.

    Thank you Karen for your kind review. It was a shame the weather wasn’t in your favour but we look forward to welcoming you when it’s sunny again!! Property Owner

  • "Stayed for a girls weekend in September."

    The Erne was clean, tidy and unique. It had good facilities including a hot tub and a bbq. We did struggle to get the hot tub working and there were fire lighters missing, however this problem was quickly resolved after contacting the owner. In future, having a guide for the hot tub may be useful! The area was very quiet, which was relaxing - however you will definitely need to drive if you wish to seek activities outside of the cabin. Overall, a great weekend and definitely would stay again!

    Thank you for your review. I’m sorry about the hot tub, I’ll be taking your feedback onboard and sorting a user guide! Hope to see you again. Kim and Ant ☺️ https://www.hiddenhill.co.uk/ Property Owner

    Uniek onderkomen. Je moet wel van rust houden. De weg naar het onderkomen is slecht begaanbaar en bij het uitrijden te onoverzichtelijk

  • "We felt very blessed to have discovered this place."

    It was exactly what we needed and fulfilled all expectations. The location itself really is 'hidden' and the cabin is positioned perfectly. The lack of light pollution and the close proximity to woodland meant total tranquillity, where even the dawn chorus didn't wake us up too early! We got to see a Barn Owl out hunting at dusk on our first night... I love the outdoors BUT I DON'T CAMP or even 'glamp' and the quality of the finish, bed linen, cleaning products, everything a fussy mare like me could want - was exactly what I got... we will never forget our first stay and next time we will make longer.. (ps. hot tub was ready for our arrival and we pre-ordered a hamper- sublime cherries on top!!)

    What a delightful read! Thank you for a great review. I’m so pleased you enjoyed your stay and will one day return. Many thanks Kim and Ant Property Owner

    This was our first experience at glamping and the cabin was perfect - it was luxurious and all our needs were catered for Ant and Kim were terrific hosts and ensured the birthday was one to remember. They'd even lit the hot tub so that it was ready to jump into on our arrival. The cabin is in an idyllic location, so tranquil and we loved watching the barn owl every evening. We would thoroughly recommend a stay here - you won't be disappointed. Thank you one again to Ant and Kim for being terrific hosts and being so thoughtful. Dawn Ward

  • "Erme is a wonderful hideaway, nestled in the Devon hills, with views over the fields, woods below, and Dartmoor in the distance."

    Myself and my wife stayed for a week upon our return to the UK, and honestly couldn’t fault any aspect of our stay. The hosts, Kim and Ant emailed us all of the appropriate details in advance, and ensured that the cabin was ready for our arrival, even including some essentials such as Milk, Tea and Coffee to get us going. Along with these basics, they provided wood to fire up the hot tub, which was a most welcome treat after our journey - especially sitting back in the tub with a drink, watching the owl from the woods below flying around the fields. The cabin itself is wonderful, with everything you could possibly need for a peaceful get away or just a moment to reset. I’ll be honest and say I was a little nervous about getting into the sleeping area, given that I’m 6ft3, but it was easier than I expected, and the raised position meant that the superbly comfortable bed was extra cosy whilst we lay listening to the rain outside on one of the evenings. The location is perfect for jaunts into Plymouth, over to the South Hams and Kingsbridge (and beyond), and is easy to access from the A38. There is ample parking, and since the cabin is set well back from the road, the location provides a level of peace and escapism which is often lost in hotels and campsites. Overall, we can’t recommend a stay here highly enough, and have already said that we plan to return to stay again, the next time we are in the UK.

    This put a smile on my face! Thank you for such a wonderful review. We hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "What a fabulous “pod”!"

    The space was extremely well utilised with a lot of thought going into every part. The furnishings were top end and there was absolutely nothing that I could say was not up to scratch. What it doesn’t say in the listings: Lots of utensils including decent knives. Hairdryer. Under-counter fridge with freezer compartment - didn’t know the size. Heated towel rail which helped with the drying of swimwear! Take your binoculars! There is so much nature on the doorstep. We watched the sun go down and the moon come up whilst spotting a deer, fox, birds of prey including the barn owl. I panicked over if i would have enough wood for my stay (log burning hot tub) but the owners text me in advance of arrival and were there to greet me and show how everything worked. They were happy to provide more logs at a lower cost than a supermarket either by me texting or if I saw them. Thoroughly recommend staying here!
