Our wonderful little beach hut is available to rent for 2 night weekend & mid-week breaks during the warmer months. Situated on our isolated, totally private beach cove, the beach hut offers the chance to really escape for a few days!

The beach hut has a double bed that you climb up a ladder to get to, a large table with bench seats and two gorgeous hammocks to snug up in while gazing out to sea. The small kitchen area has all the pots, pans, crockery and cutlery that you need for your stay and a double gas hob & grill, fridge/freezer and sink. There is mains water and electricity, so there is lighting and a small water heater which provides hot water for the bathroom and kitchen. The hut has a small woodburner inside, so if the evening turns chilly you will be still be toasty and warm indoors.

There is a gorgeous small bathroom which has a shower, toilet and basin.

Outside there is a fantastic woodfired hot tub for you to soak in at the end of a hard day relaxing! Just fill it up with fresh water, light the woodburner and keep it fed for a couple hours and the hot tub will be ready for use… just perfect.

Superior 100% cotton white bed linen, bath robes, bath & hand towels are all provided but please bring your own outside beach towels. We also supply tea-towels, environmentally friendly cleaning materials and recycled paper toilet rolls. We provide salt & pepper, cooking oil, Fair Trade organic tea, coffee, sugar and fresh organic milk for you. Logs are provided in the outside store, but please do collect any driftwood to add to the pile! There is an axe there for you to use to make your kindling, but if you want to buy any ready made or want firelighters then please bring these with you.

Access to the Beach Hut is from Carswell Farm, where you can park your car in a designated garage. You then you have a 15 minute walk, including a steep path, down to the cove. There is no access for vehicles, so you will need to carry everything you want in a rucksack and wear sturdy footwear.

We offer a special ‘Devon Meal Hamper’ which we will put in the Beach Hut ready for your arrival if you don’t want to worry about bringing the basics. This is enough for the first night and morning and includes milk, muesli, bread, butter, marmalade, a simple evening meal for 2 (meat and vegetarian options) and a bottle of wine. The cost is £45 – please contact us for more details. Our other hampers are also available to order.

Due to the remote location and difficult access, I’m afraid that single occupancy, children under 18 and dogs are not allowed under any circumstances. Please be aware that there is no internet, 4G or mobile phone signal at The Beach Hut.

  • We had a fabulous time. We spent all our time in the beach hut and on the beach. It was great having the whole place to ourselves. We spent hours just watching the waves and exploring the rocks then chilling out in the hot tub under the stars. Mick was in his element having 3 fires to light and control – woodburner, bbq and hot tub! He does like a fire. We had some super meals, BBQd mackerel and BBQd monkfish which we’d bought from Moby Nicks in Plymouth. We also brought our own produce with us from our allotment! Mick took loads of amazing photos (one of his passions) and we were blessed with waking up to a rainbow on our last morning. This was a very special holiday which is way up there on our ‘best things we’ve ever done’ list.

  • Amazingly unique place. A great stay so far removed from the stresses of normal life that you can feel the life force returning to you with every breath.
