A stylish and beautifully furnished pod next to the River Avon, with its very own hot tub, providing the perfect base for couples looking to relax in the Devon countryside.

Escape to this romantic riverside retreat in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and enjoy fabulous walks from your doorstep. This stylish glamping pod is made for two. If you fancy a night out, it’s less than half a mile to the pub, just stroll over the riverside bridge; your canine companion is also welcome to join you. And you’ll find an eclectic range of shops, eateries, arts, and amenities in the nearby town of Totnes (6 miles).

Take four steps up to the decked terrace and step inside this contemporary-style pod. Every creature comfort has been catered for in the clever open-plan design with areas for living, cooking, dining, and sleeping. Enjoy morning coffees on the deck, listening to the soothing sounds of the River Avon. Cook a delicious meal for your loved one in the cosy kitchen and feast on Devon food produce from your market town visits – there’s even a fire pit outside for BBQ evenings under the stars. Snuggle up on the sofa and watch romantic films on the Smart TV, or simply sink into the bubbly hot tub or unwind in the cosy double bed.

Shop for gifts in the elegant coastal town of Salcombe (18 miles). Discover Ivybridge, the gateway to Dartmoor National Park (7.5 miles), where you can cycle and hike lofty trails, and explore the magnificent Parke country estate (17.5 miles). Visit the market town of Bovey Tracey (18 miles) which hosts a busy calendar of events including a summer craft festival. And take a camera to The English Riviera seaside towns of Paignton (12.5 miles), Torquay (15 miles), and Brixham (15.5 miles), set in the idyllic natural harbour of Tor Bay.

Our stay at the River Avon Pod couldnt have been better. The pod was cosy but spacious and no corners had been cut on quality. The hot tub and fire pit were fantastic and the grounds it was set in plus the pub on the doorstep were an added bonus. And the hosts were extremely welcoming and attentive, we will be returning next year!

The pod is lovely. It was so relaxing. Very pretty views we had 2 families of ducks on the river next to the pod which was amazing. The hot tub is lovely to finish the day in after going shopping in one of the towns or cities nearby. All round a lovely place to stay, owners are lovely too.
