The beach is only four miles away and you are only 15mins walk from the pub, set in the middle of mature woodland. Live life as it should be, enjoy your bath gazing over the tree tops... switch off your mobile, stare at the heavens by the open fire.

The space
Unique is an often used word and by definition all things are... or mostly, this is a chance to stay in the middle of the woods... mostly on your own, (there is another yurt space in the woods) a chance to dip below life's radar. The Yurt is a cosy space with one king size double bed, a double day bed and a single fold up. A basket of firewood is provided which should last you a couple days and more can be purchased as and when you need it, doing it this way makes you be aware of what you consume and its impact on the space you are staying in. There is a simple outdoor kitchen with a two ring gas burner and all the utensils you will need to prepare food and simple washing up facilities. Water is collected from a stand pipe close to the yurt, this again helps you be aware of your consumption. There is a flushing composting loo as well... just like home but eco and in the woods!
If you have young ish kids, a great book to read whilst you stay is
'My side of the mountain'

Where you’ll be

Totnes, Devon, United Kingdom

Blackawton is a thriving community of about 750 residents, people will talk to you, which is great, some locals drive to the shop because otherwise it can take an hour to 'cross town'. The pub, The George Inn is a good counrty pub and you will be given a warm welcome, they keep great real ale, and serve good pub food. If you have more expensive tastes Dartmouth is a short drive away and offers many excellent gastro experiences...booking at all places is advised.

I am a woodsman working Collaford woods, a small mature woodland in Blackawton in the South Hams, Devon, UK. In an ideal world I would make my own everything, grow my own food and not leave the village to much. In reality, I make my own furniture, harvest my own firewood, buy as much as I can from the local farmers and community shop, live in the woods when feasible, up cycle when I can, help the community and others where I can. At the moment I am restoring a 1900 Burton showmans wagon to live in in the woods and as I type am waiting to hear about its new wheels which have been made by the Royally appointed wheelwrights in East Devon. Over winter I have done up my mid life crisis 1969/70 sports car ready for a summer road trip. So, the five things I can't live without.... My daughter, my truck, my Qi Qong, the sea, human beings... favorite place to be is in the woods, on the beach, all with friends. Carpe Diem as some people still say.
