Oftentimes on Pitchup.com, we’re tempted to add another accommodation category, of ‘ones we could live in all year round.’ If we did, Yealm Cabin in south Devon would be very much on the list: it’s a log cabin perched on its own overlooking the Yealm Valley in the sublime South Hams, is fully-equipped with all we’d need for a self-catering holiday lasting a few years, and is minutes from beaches so downright beaut they’ve been used in several film sets. It even accepts up to five dogs per stay (bring a blankie if you’re letting them up on the furniture), so no excuse for not going out for walkies all around; Dartmoor is just 15 minutes away.
We’d also want to stick around for a bit for some starry gazing: Yealm Cabin is in an area of no light pollution and has its own observatory where guests can book an appointment to sky gaze with a local astronomy expert. (That’s what we call astronomically good service.) The observatory is on the site’s one-acre lawn for the kids to cartwheel around at, tables and chairs for the more Siriusly-minded grownups to soak up the sun, and a barbecue for alfresco cooking. Cosmic.
Yealm Cabin sleeps up to five in a double bedroom, double sofa bed and single camp bed, and has an open plan dining and living room with glass doors so you can drink in the hill and field views while drinking your morning coffee or evening wine. A shower, loo and wash area are a few steps away from the main bedroom through a private courtyard.
From the lawn, plough along the lane through woodland to get to Yealmpton five minutes away (bring your wellies) and reach a couple of friendly pubs offering food, a restaurant and several shops to pick up souvenirs and the ingredients at its farm shop for a late Devon cream tea or barbecue back at base under the stars.
The person making the booking must be over 18 years of age. Group bookings of five people or more under 21 years of age are not permitted via Pitchup.com.
