The best lodges and log cabins in Devon for smooth south-western hols

Not taken by tents but still want a budget-friendly trip in the south west? Grab a cuppa and a scone in preparation, then spend some time sifting through this selection of the best lodges and log cabins in Devon. On a hol in the county that brought us the legendary cream tea, there are lashings of brill beaches, scenic cliffs, tiny towns and protected moorlands to visit (PS: they put the jam on second down here). 

All our Devon lodges and log cabins are close to stunning scenery, and many come with a range of handy facilities, so there’ll be no need to scour the attic for that camping stove/transportable barbecue/missing tent pole (delete as appropriate). 

All you need to do is browse the parks on this page and pick the one that suits you and your travel buds best.

Where to stay in a lodge or log cabin in Devon

If you reckon dawdling across Dartmoor National Park should be your main modus operandi on your next break, settle in somewhere around Newton Abbot to the south of this protected moorland area or Okehampton to the north – the former has sites within walking distance of the Templer Way heritage trail and sprawling countryside, as well as access to flat cycling routes through woodlands and past lakes. 

Base yourself around Barnstaple for access to northern coast beach towns like Ilfracombe, which has a pretty harbour sandwiched between a couple of big cliffs. Or browse our Woolacombe lodges and spend days soaking up the rays (Devon has a warmer climate than much of the rest of the UK, so a sunshine-filled break isn’t unheard of here) on this stretch of seaside’s three-mile-long beach sloping down to the surfable waves of the Atlantic.

On the south coast – or the English Riviera, as it’s affectionately known – are log cabins in Torquay et al for bucket-and-spade sessions at beaches with giggle-inducing names (can any moniker top ‘Babbacombe’ and ‘Oddicombe’?). Totter off on trips to Torre Abbey, a 12th-century monastery with gardens home to plants namechecked in local writer Agatha Christie’s books, too. 

Travellers who take themselves to Tavistock, the market town on the River Tavy, will be close enough to Cornwall to dilly-dally around the dreamy destinations of this south-western stunner as well.

The type of parks with lodges and log cabins in Devon

Parks with lodges or log cabins in Devon range from simple spots set in wild scenery to kitted-out camps with fab facilities (think spas, miniature golf courses and adventure playgrounds). Some include kids’ clubs for nippers who can’t sit still, while dog-friendly lodges and log cabins in Devon have your furriest family members covered.

Choose from spectacular river valley parks with camping pods in Devon for paddling in the water or resting by the banks while sipping an ale (or three) picked up from a local brewery. 

Several sites in our selection centre around fishing lakes stocked with aquatic creatures like carp and trout, while others have bars and clubhouses with evening entertainment – think discos and bingo – to suit sociable sorts.

For those who want a fancier hol, some lodges and log cabins in Devon are packed with amenities, including state-of-the-art kitchenettes. Read through each listing to see what extras are provided before you book – it’ll make life much easier when it comes to packing. 

Facilities to make the most of while in your lodge or log cabin in Devon

It’s often the thoughtful extras that make all the difference, so browse for Devon lodges and log cabins that lend out wellies and include bike cleaning areas for cyclists to keep their equipment pristine. Places that sell locally sourced produce for your kitchenette or barbecue are also winners – expect options like free-range eggs, home-reared meats and garden-grown veggies. 

Seeking cheap log cabin breaks and don’t mind going back to basics? Our low-priced selection starts at £30 a night for two people, so it won’t blow the budget.

Eco-friendly wanderers? Keep an eye out for parks that keep the environment in mind with compost loos and lots of recycling areas; there’s even a smartly designed spot with a swimming pool warmed up by a biomass heating system.

Sightseeing in Devon: where to go and what to do

The English Riviera on the southern coast has plenty of pretty harbour towns with log cabins, like Dawlish Warren, Brixham and Paignton with their neat streets and sandy beaches.

For roamers, a walking path lines the whole 630-mile-long seaside in the south west, running across the craggy cliffs of the Exmoor Coast to the fossil-filled rock formations in the southern Jurassic Coast. Pick a patch or do the whole thing – it’ll take you between a month and seven weeks to complete it all. 

Other top trekking options in this lush county include the Tarka Trail in the Barnstaple area, which winds its way through woodland-covered river valleys, mystical-looking moorlands and dramatic coastline for a varied amble.

Setting your sights on city strolls? Look for log cabins in Plymouth or Exeter – the latter has a particularly pretty cathedral worth visiting in its centre, as well as organised tours of underground passages underneath the high street.

Cross over to the next county over, Cornwall, if you’re up for extending your trip. Here are some luxurious lodging options there.
