This luxurious off-grid cabin is set in it’s own secluded woodland glade and is perfect for a romantic getaway. You are welcome to explore the woodland which has been described by Devon Wildlife Trust as “a mosaic of habitats”. The cabin is handcrafted from wood, some of which is the product of Bulworthy Project’s own woodland work. From the rustic frame of naturally fallen heartwood oak at the front of the cabin to the window ledges of cherry wood harvested as part of restoring an area of coppice, every part of the building combines the highest standards of ecology with the exquisite beauty of wood.
Electricity is provided by solar and the water is heated by a woodburner, which creates a lovely cosy feel for romantic evenings. Within it’s little glade the cabin has it’s own private campfire and barbecue so that you can enjoy the great outdoors. Inside you will find all the creature comforts that you need. With it’s en suite and kitchenette everything is carefully designed to fit all the facilities that you would expect from somewhere much larger into a small space. The off grid electrics don’t include any 240v sockets, but the cabin is equipped with WiFi, an electric coolbox and USB sockets so that you can charge your phone.
As well as a working woodland, Bulworthy Project is a venue for courses and events. It’s well worth checking their website to see if there is anything on that would add to your stay. Whether a bow making course or a pop up café in the woods, there are plenty of activities to enjoy. There are pigs and sheep to meet and from some places in the woods you have a view of Dartmoor on a clear day. The woodland is managed for charcoal, and you will find a bag of charcoal waiting for you when you arrive.
Bulworthy Project holds a gold award from Devon Wildlife Trust for working to benefit Devon’s wildlife and natural environment and every aspect of the enterprise has been thought out with the environment in mind.
Just off the A361 and only a few miles from Exmoor, this is a great spot from which to explore, but most people who stay in the cabin are there to enjoy the seclusion of it’s position in the woods and the luxury of such a well thought out space.

We leave a feedback form in the cabin. The idea was to help us improve our offering, but it’s great to read them when someone has stayed. We’ve posted some here for you to get an insight into how our guests see the cabin.
A perfect stay
The cabin is beautiful and ideal for a few days away. As a couple, we’ve been together for 7 years so have been to lots of places, but this is a first experience “in the woods” and we would love to come back again!
Everything you need is in the cabin and the walks around the land good fun.
Thank you for having us. We will spread the word around Oxford for you.
We came, we saw, we loved it!
Quiet, clean, non-intrusive, on-point and as advertised.
Wonderful hosts! Natural, peaceful…
You can just enjoy the nature, watch the skies, have a great time by the barbecue, or camp fire and explore the surrounding beaches and wooded areas as well as seaside towns.
We loved staying in this beautiful cabin!
The perfect place to escape the rat race. It’s a lovely wooden cabin which offers all the necessary amenities for a comfortable & relaxing stay. We’ll be coming back!
Lovely! and thank you for the shower stool (perfect) and the assistance out of the mud (sorry!)
I’ve absolutely loved my stay and will recommend it.
A few minor suggestions like a towel rail at wheelchair height would be great.
(Hannah was the first person to stay in the cabin who uses a wheelchair. She wrote a fuller review that can be seen here)
What an absolutely awasome place!
We had a fantastic relaxing weekend.
Thank you! Oh and the cabin build is amazing, top spec build!
We really do not want to go home!!! See you again,
Love and peace X
Dear Pete and Anna
Thank you for a wonderful stay in the cabin. We have been comfortable, warm, plenty of hot water and very relaxed. We loved it and will definitely visit again.
Great cabin, comfortable + you seem to have thought of everything! Very satisfying to heat our own water.* It would be interesting to have more details of how it’s built. (we’d like to build our own!)
Thanks for the wine and marmalade!
There were lots of birds which we enjoyed sitting watching, you could suggest on the website that people bring binoculars if they are interested?
*Best shower ever!
A perfect weekend retreat to recharge our batteries. We loved the cabin, you have thought of every detail anyone could need. (blurred name) thoroughly enjoyed his bow making course, hospitality was excellent and food was delicious.
I enjoyed relaxing, walking in the woods and reading.
We had plenty of hot water and the cabin was very cosy and warm, we would recommend to all our friends and family.
Wow! Such a great experience! It was everything that we hoped it would be. The cabin is very well built & had everything that we needed. It really became our home from home in the woods. There’s so many nice touches: a well equipped kitchenette, easy to use woodburner, a very nice shower and even freshly cut flowers. Pete and Anna are very lovely people and so welcoming. We were lucky to be part of the barbecue café event, and the food was delicious and healthy (locally sourced from trusted suppliers and by themselves). We can’t wait to come again!
Thank you so much, guys! XX
We enjoyed the cabin, thanks for a wonderful stay.
We didn’t feel it lacked anything except perhaps an electricity point for charging a laptop.
Kitchen, fire and shower all worked wonderfully and it was great to have plenty of wood for the fire. Nettle wine also tip top
One wine glass perished – sorry!
Thanks again and good luck with your project.
Thank you for a fantastic stay.
The cabin was lovely and had everything we needed.
We loved our stay. We had everything we needed in the cabin. Loads of lovely walks near by. Although the house is nearby which is handy, we felt we had all the space + the woods to ourselves!
Thanks very much! xx
