Why not escape to a magical place in the heart of beautiful West Devon; a place you can completely relax in and experience the simplicity of living under the stars, next to nature.
Authentic Mongolian Yurts and Wooden Cabins provide a fitting child-friendly retreat for those of you looking for a real haven from the hustle and bustle of modern-day life. There is also a camping field for happy Campers.
Oak Tree Lane is a small holding on a family run farm, set within 40 acres of pasture land and woodlands positioned in the heart of West Devon with stunning views overlooking Dartmoor National Park. It is also located a mile away from Roadford Lake Country Park and its Watersports Centre. At the lake you can enjoy a range of activities both on and off the water.
A REAL AND SPECTACULAR WOOD CABIN EXPERIENCE!
Oaktree-Lane proudly offer two Wood Cabins for guests to stay in and luxuriate in the warmth and comfort that they provide. Our Cabins have been built on the foundations of our green fields and elevated on measured ground comprising of local stone.
They are provided with gas central heating. Notably a large number of wooden cabins are equipped with wood burners (as are our Mongolian Yurts) however we felt that modern-day sophistication and simplified comfort was at its utmost importance in enabling guests to feel warm, cosy and comfortable at all times throughout the year.
Our Wood Cabins accommodate a maximum of four people. They have two bedrooms; one bedroom has a comfy double-bed whilst the other bedroom has two comfy single beds. All of the beds are supplied with mattress protectors, fitted sheets, pillows and pillow protectors, a duvet and duvet cover together with decorative throws and cushions.
Both bedrooms have the provision of modern-day wardrobes, enabling guests to pack away their clothes with ease and care. So should you find yourselves packing some of your best attire or simply casual style tops and bottoms, have reassurance that your clothes can be stored away in style.
Set within a tranquil valley in the heart of West Devon, each Yurt stands tall on a wooden deck, nestled into the hillside in its own private area, with generous space to explore, adventure and unwind. A Yurt is a traditional Mongolian tent consisting of wooden lattice walls, an insulating felt layer and a heavy waterproof canvas over the top. Our Yurts have been hand crafted in Mongolia by traditional Mongolian Yurt builders and each one is bespoke.
The Yurt will accommodate a maximum of six people and are equipped with a comfy double bed, a double day bed and 2 single futons. Coir matting and rugs have been provided to keep your tootsies warm, along with a central log burner, enabling you to feel warm and cosy at all times.
Immediately outside each Yurt, a private decking area is available accommodating a picnic bench and BBQ facility, enabling guests to eat al fresco and soak in the stunning surrounding views, perfect for hazy, warm evenings with only the stars and surrounding natural habitat to share the evenings with you. Due to encouraging an eco-friendly approach, Oak Tree-Lane Yurts do not have any electricity; they are fitted with solar powered light and lanterns, which only adds to their charm.
Each Yurt has a private and fully equipped Field Kitchen which compromises all necessary kitchen utensils, a picnic bench, gas cooker and fridge-freezer. Guests also have the provision of their own private sanitary facilities comprising a power shower, basin and wc.
LIFE ON THE FARM
Oak Tree-Lane is a family run farm with livestock of pigs and sheep. It also accommodates a fine selection of poultry including turkeys, geese and hens, all of which can wonder freely in their designated fields. Of course, we must not forget the farm cat, Snowy! Young budding farmers are able to enjoy much of the farm during their stay and help feed the animals.
Oak Tree-Lane proudly offers the sale of its own eggs, lovingly laid daily by our happy hens. We also offer the sale of a fine selection of home-grown meats of pork and lamb, so whether you fancy a sausage sandwich, an egg and bacon banjo or even a treat of a joint of meat to roast, guests can be reassured that it doesn’t come any more home grown than this as all meat sold has been lovingly grown on site!
