Candlelight and a crackling fire in the log-burner add to the romantic atmosphere of this rustic off-grid cabin.
Owlet Cabin is an off grid peaceful retreat, nestled at the top of beautiful Owl Valley. The cabin is fully insulated and has a log-burning stove, perfect for cosy nights in by the crackling fire. Your stay includes a daily allowance of logs (more available for sale from the honesty shop). It has a sunny deck with views into the trees and over the stream, where you can while away the hours with a good book or cook up a storm on the gas BBQ. There is also an outside covered kitchen complete with a two-ring gas burner and a sink with cold mains water, stocked with all kitchen/dining equipment plus a cool box.
The cabin sleeps five, there is a comfy double bed (all bedding provided) and a king size mezzanine which sleeps up to three children or two adults. You will only need to bring sleeping bags/duvets for the happy campers on the top bed, all pillows are provided. On the ground floor there is a settee/chaise longue that can also be used as a bed for a small child (will also need a sleeping bag/duvet). The cabin has solar fairy lights, a rechargeable lantern and lots of candles. A private compost toilet and eco shower with solar lighting completes the picture.

Owl Valley is located about 1 mile from Bideford North Devon. Full of bird song, flowers and places to explore it is a peaceful and secluded valley away from the pressures of everyday life. It even has its own stream and a pond full of wildlife. After moving to this tranquil, beautiful valley in 2015, owners Pauline and Ray decided they would like to share their valley with other like minded souls and 'Owl Valley glamping' was born. Our beautiful, if a little eclectic, Cabin Owlet and 3 x 5 metre Bell tents are named after some of our resident Owls: Barn, Tawny (30 metres apart) and the secluded Long eared.
Glamping Site Facilities
Bell tents have a double futon bed (bedding included) and single fold-out beds, a dining table and chairs, cooking equipment, cutlery and crockery, a BBQ, cool box and a campfire bowl (logs provided onsite). The off-grid Owlet Cabin (sleeps 5) has a double-bed (with bedding) and king-sized mezzanine (without), plus a chase lounge an extra child can sleep on. It has a wood-burner (and initial supply of logs), fairly lights, lanterns and an outside sun-deck with a BBQ, plus a covered kitchen with a 2-ring gas burner, sink with cold water cooking equipment (including coolbox) and crockery. Each unit has its own private compost toilet with sink, eco shower, eco liquid soap and shampoo and an outside fresh water tap. The 'parliament' recreation room has a porch with gas hobs, washing up facilities, table and chairs, pot bellied log burner, books, board games, dart board and a mini billiards table. There's also a kettle pizza BBQ in the 'beater's hut'. Further up in the woods you'll also find the campfire site and there's a small pond for dipping and a stream for dam building.
