A unique bolthole for a glorious solo break or romantic getaway, this quirky pad offers something for everyone. Spacious, colourful and boasting an excellent location, it is a breath of fresh air. Play with your dogs in the enclosed garden, roam through the undiluted countryside and let yourself slip entirely into holiday mode.

During the day, the Velux windows and large patio doors allow plenty of sunshine to flood in, whilst at night you can look up at stars twinkling in clear skies. If you are a bit of a foodie or simply fancy a meal at home, the cute and compact kitchen provides a fridge, freezer, electric oven and hob, and there is even a dishwasher too.

We had a lovely friendly greeting on arrival, and settled into The Workshop immediately. Everything was, well, just lovely!

The Workshop is perfect for a getaway, set in a beautiful secluded location for a peaceful break away for 2 and a dog. The owners have tastefully decorated the accommodation and have provided everything you need for a home from home. The shower has additional horizontal jet (massage) option which is perfect following a day of coastal path walking!

This is an ideal place to go if you want to relax and do not much, particularly in the winter as Devon was waterlogged, windy and pretty unhospitable. The facilities are excellent, the people welcoming and very proactive and helpful.

What a fabulous space! BIgger than we'd expected and very comfortable. Beautifully designed and well equipped. We loved the quirky colourful dcor and the shower was great including the twinkly lights. The campsite had closed for the season which meant that our 2 dogs had 2 large fields pretty much to themselves which was an absolute bonus. Anne andRead more Debbie (not forgetting Basia) were very welcoming and helpful with any questions we had. A good base for touring North Devon. Highly recommend it. Hide
