A beautifully furnished pod next to the River Avon, with its very own hot tub under the stars, providing a unique base for couples looking to relax in the Devon countryside.

This beautiful pod is set within a riverside position, complete with a countryside backdrop. Set within a private enclosure next to the local pub, this unique retreat boasts a private hot tub and fire pit; it’s the perfect spot to relax after a day of exploring the local area. You can enjoy peaceful walks from the doorstep, or head south and you are in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty which offers the lovely old coastal towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth where you can browse many independent shops, restaurants and cafes, all within 15 miles.

Step inside the rustic, stylish pod and you will see the brilliantly designed and very comfortable studio-style lounge/kitchen/diner/sleeping area. The lounge area features a cosy sofa and smart TV with views overlooking the garden. This space has been well thought out and has ample room to relax and dine, perfect after exploring what South Devon has to offer during the day. The kitchen is compact yet perfectly appointed and boasts all the essentials including a two ring gas hob, combi microwave oven and fridge with an ice compartment. The sleeping area has a comfortable king-size bed and next to this you will see the well laid out shower room with WC.

Moving outside you will step on to a lovely, decked area, with the River Avon next to you making it the perfect place to relax.

This place is amazing, everything was clean and we were even given a welcome basket with guides telling us about where we were staying and about places around we could visit. We were given complimentary drinks in the fridge, milk, bacon, eggs, butter and the kitchen was very well stocked with everything we needed. One day we ordered food from the IRead morenn and they brought it to us with the dessert too, everything was just perfect and worth the money. Sue was amazing.We wish we couldve stayed longer. Hide

Absolutely stunning place, brilliant hospitality at the beautiful pub with great food and drinks at a very good price. just a few steps away but also so peaceful and quiet. Lovely wood fired hot tub too. Thanks to Sue and the team for being there but not (if you know what I mean?)

We had a wonderful chilled out week at our pod! Great location for exploring Devon and then great to come back to a hot tub / sauna and relax. We cooked some meals on the BBQ and in the Pod - and also ate pub grub from the Avon Inn - excellent food and they even delivered our food to the pod

I can't thank Sue enough for all she did to make sure we had an enjoyable stay. The accommodation is ideally suited to explore the lovely villages and coast nearby. And at the end of the day you have a lovely country pub to relax over a cold drink and sample the delicious food on offer, served by very friendly attentive staff. My dog Charlie loved Read morethe accommodation's garden we will certainly be back. Hide

The accommodation is very well appointed . There is a full range of towels available and a wonderful welcome pack which holiday cottages don't mention on the website, but should. The owners are very accommodating . The hot tub was ready to use on our arrival Such a bonus having the parking and pub on the doorstep. Our dog loved the area especially Read morethe River Avon right next to us. Although the main road runs by the site, it didnt have impact on our stay, just made it easier to access places Hide
