Just 3 miles from Slapton Sands, hidden away within a beautiful wooded valley in South Devon, The Hide is a stylish scandinavian timber lodge, surrounded by trees, a perfect choice for a luxury holiday with friends and family where you can enjoy the freedom of the outdoors and experience a holiday with a real difference. Spend your summer evenings barbecuing in the meadow, and as the sun dips beneath the trees, keep toasty around the Indian Kadai Fire Pit. Have fun exploring along the Nature Trail and discover the local wildlife, or roll up the trousers and go for a paddle in the stream.

Centrally positioned within a group of privately owned lodges, The Hide benefits from parking immediately outside, with just two steps to negotiate to the front door. The beautiful Scandinavian interior is bright and airy with full length picture windows and patio doors leading onto a decked veranda, a perfect place for an alfresco bite. Tastefully furnished, the open plan lounge is stylish and modern with a sleek fully fitted kitchen set to one side. Three bedrooms are furnished with heavenly mattresses and beautiful crisp linen. The master bedroom is en-suite and there is an additional family bathroom.

Families will love this holiday experience where children have the freedom to play outdoors. Visit the goats in the top field they all all real characters and children will love their inquisitive nature. For couples the location is idyllic with walks on your doorstep and plenty of places to visit.

Of course if you can tear yourself away, one of the finest beaches in South Devon, Blackpool Sands is just 5 miles away, for the surfers and paddleboarders amongst you Salcombe and Bantham beaches are just 25 mins and the shingle and pebble bar at Slapton is just 2 miles. There is a whole host of interesting towns to explore in the area, Kingsbridge, Totnes and Dartmouth all within easy reach and plenty of days out including Woodlands Adventure Park less than fifteen minutes drive and of course Dartmoor National Park just over half an hour drive.

The Devon region

The jewel in Devon's crown, the South Hams of Devon is a scenic region to explore. An area of 'Outstanding Natural Beauty' that encompasses picturesque estuaries and a stunning coastline with miles of unspoilt beaches and hidden coves to a lush hinterland that extends to the wild untamed heathland of Dartmoor, there is variety for all. From the richly wooded Dart Valley and the historic deepwater port of Dartmouth all the way to Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island, you can discover the charm of charismatic coastal villages and towns.


Just 2 miles from this beautifully wooded valley is the village of Slapton with its two pubs, shop and church. There is the long lake/lagoon of Slapton Ley nature reserve ideal for birdwathcing and the 3 mile stretch of Slapton Sands mainly pebbles, not sand, The most popular beach is Blackpool Sands, just 5 miles away (10 minutes in the car). Here you will find great facilities parking, a fantastic cafe and restuarant (The Venus Café) and watersports equipment hire.

The historic town of Dartmouth is just a 10 minute drive away and a great day out for all the family. Take a River cruise along the River Dart, explore Dartmouth castle or take the Steam Train from Kingswear up to Paignton. The town is host to many festivals throughout the year in particular the Dartmouth Regatta at the end of August. The lovely market town of Kingsbridge is also close by and has some lovely independent shops and cafes. There is also a Leisure Centre here with a 25 meter pool.
