Bordered by ferns and irises, the picturesque lake at Coastal Cabins is a tranquil backdrop for some of the best glamping in North Devon, a series of custom-built cabins that occupies a wild yet manicured two-acre space on the wild north Devon coast. It's unique accommodation in a perfect seaside location, and an ideal base for exploring the wild Hartland Peninsula, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Above all though it's just a lovely place to chill out and enjoy the sea, the coastline and the surrounding countryside.
Set just a mile or so from the South West Coast Path, Coastal Cabins really does live up to its name. It’s difficult to spend a day here without strolling along one beach or another, or atop the rocky headlands, and the setting is perfect – especially when summer is in full, sunny swing. The site comprises 10 cabins in total: half of these have a king-sized bed and are suitable for couples (they have now introduced sofa beds to all of their 'Couples Cabins' due to popular demand), while the other half are big enough to accommodate a family of four, with an extra set of bunk beds. All of them divide between the sleeping and living space, the shower room and the modern kitchenette, equipped with oven, sink, fridge and all the utensils you need. The whitewashed cladding and the double-glazed windows lend them a spacious, airy feel, while a circular roof-light lets in extra daylight. All in all they’re an innovative new take on the traditional beach hut, but with multiple knobs on.
As regard other facilities, cabin BBQ so you can cook up a feast and also the 'Wild Spa' Hot Tub area, which can be hired by the hour – a great place to relax when you've finally put down your bucket and spade and set aside some 'me' time. It's a fair bit warmer than swimming in the sea too.
