  • "We had a great stay at Yealm!"

    Kim and Ant (the hosts) provided us with useful information about the area and were easily contactable. The accommodation was very clean and had all the facilities we would need to make the most out of our stay - including a lovely hot tub! It was a great escape to the countryside!

  • "The property was very clean, warm and stylish."

    It is well equipped with most things you would need. The surroundings are beautiful and peaceful. It was lovely to sit outside enjoying a drink or meal, or enjoying the hot tub, looking at the wonderful view with just the sounds of birds and sheep. The owners were very helpful and quick to answer any questions we had. We also loved our daily visits from their lovely, friendly dog Bea. I would highly recommend for a lovely, relaxing holiday. I

  • "Well we've stayed in pods with nothing, pods with everything, but Yealm was just right."

    Pod was immaculate, and the king size bed was so comfortable. The views from the pod /hot tub were beautiful, watching a barn owl fly across the field, then a woodpecker hanging on the fence was nature at its best. Kim & Ant are fantastic hosts, supplying us with fresh eggs and tomatoes out of the poly tunnel just added that touch. Also must say the visits everyday from Bea (the dog) made my sons holiday. Thank you

    This made me smile. Thank you for such a wonderful review. I’m pleased you enjoyed the extra touches and visits from Bea! We hope to see you again. Many thanks Kim, Ant and Bea Property Owner

  • "This was above and beyond what we expected."

    The host checked in with us throughout our stay to see if we needed anything and nothing was to much trouble. The area was very relaxing and peaceful and just what we needed. The cabin was fantastic and of a very high standard. There was a nice touch with the homemade chocolate cake on our arrival. The hot tub was a very welcome extra and easy to use. Would highly recommend to everyone we will most definitely be returning. Our time there was amazing thank you so much Kim, Ant, kids and Bea. Many thanks Jim and Denise.

    Thanks for your lovely feedback and for leaving the cabin so clean and tidy, much appreciated. We’ll see you again soon. Everyone was thrilled with their treats you left, especially me! Thank you. Kim, Ant, Rupert, Wilfy, Ellie and Bea. X Property Owner

  • "We had an excellent stay at Yealm."

    A great location topped off by a perfect little cabin. Had everything you need for a relaxing few days away. The bed was comfortable and it was an easy place to keep warm or cool down if required. The owner, Kim went out of her way to make our stay as good as possible. Taking time to show us how to warm up the hot tub as quickly as possible & always being available to answer questions we had. I was shocked when Kim told us Yealm had only been available for a month because it seemed so well established. Would definitely recommend this place to couples and even a small family as I know there is a larger cabin that would cater for this. Thanks Kim for a great stay. Maddie and James

  • "First time we've tried glamping and loved it."

    The pod is well thought out, nicely furnished with a really comfortable bed and quality bedding. Lovely views across fields, not a street light in sight. Really felt like we were getting away from it all. Lots of attention to detail including a gorgeous body care range and even fresh flowers inside and out. Run by owners who care that you are happy with everything. The only reason for not giving full marks on the accurancy of the listing is that Sykes cottages have listed a sea view, there didn't appear to be one from the pod. ( The word pod really doesn't do Yealm justice ).

    You were great guests, thank you for the card and chocolates - very thoughtful. Thank you for letting me know about the sea view. I’ve spoken to Sykes about the description. We hope to see again. Kim, Ant and Kids xxx Property Owner

The property

Holbeton 1 mile.

The perfect hideaway for a couple's retreat and named after the local River Yealm, this luxury cabin is situated within a picturesque valley.

This unique haven ticks all the boxes for a luxury glamping getaway.

Yealm is set within the South Hams countryside and only three miles from the beach.

It is a self-contained luxury glamping cabin with a wood-fired hot tub.

A short drive, or longer, but leisurely walk to Mothecombe beach with close proximity to Dartmoor National park, Salcombe and Plymouth, Yealm provides an inviting, secluded escape for couples or friends wanting to relax and get away from it all.

After a day exploring many beautiful beaches, trekking on Dartmoor National Park or mooching around the vibrant South Devon towns, head back to your cabin to create a delicious meal in the well-equipped kitchenette then enjoy an indulgent soak in the wood-fired hot tub or a glass of bubbles in the garden area.

Round off the evening next to the fire pit underneath the spectacular night sky, whilst listening to the hooting of the many owls before crawling into the king-sized bed with crisp Egyptian cotton sheets.

Choose Yealm and experience a wonderful holiday in Devon.

About the location

KINGSBRIDGE

Salcombe 5 miles; Bantham 5 miles; Dartmouth 12 miles; Totnes 13 miles; Plymouth 20 miles.

Home to meandering lanes and thatched cottages, the characterful village of Holbeton is an ideal holiday destination any time of year. With a shop/Post Office and a pub, the village has a real sense of remoteness, with picture-perfect architecture completing the atmosphere. The church in the village dates back to the 14th century, with intricate stained glass, adding to the delicate feel of the Devonian community, yet juxtaposing grandeur with its imposing steeple. Within reach is the River Erme, while the sandy beach at Mothecombe is slightly further afield and makes a delightful seaside day out. A wealth of outdoor activities can be found in the area too, with the Dartmoor National Park nearby, as well as the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
