Cabin Holiday Rental
HOF HUT with its Japanese hot tub next to it, is all you need for a romantic stay away. (It is the sister accommodation to HOF COTTAGE, which has been on TripAdvisor for the last 4 years). Completed late Summer 2019 it has been lovingly handbuilt by the owners. The hut is of wooden construction, clad by waney larch, and interior designed with a rustic old English/Scandi theme with wall timbers and plaster. All wooden elements inside including the furniture have been handcrafted by the owners to create a unique calming space for you to immerse yourself in and totally forget the outside world (for a little while). Its larger than a shepherd's hut so there is space to move but also bifold doors to utilise the outside space as well.

Its larger than a shepherd's hut so there is space to move but also bifold doors to utilise the outside space as well. Open plan living with an en suite bathroom which is very unique and has to be seen to be believed! THE JAPANESE HOT TUB So called because its very large (8ft x8ft) and based on Japanese warming baths- so no bubbles, just deep and wide so you can float. Heated by a very large woodburner, it gets to 38-40 degrees by evening and returns to a lower temp during the day- perfect to use as a plunge pool when its sunlounger temperature. The hot tub is directly next to HOF HUT and our bar/chillout area is directly next to the hot tub. HOF GALLERY We opened our little gallery May 2016- which showcases local arts & crafts- paintings, ceramics, cards, knitwear and other textiles, rustic reclaimed frame making. Felt sculptures & pictures a speciality- commissions can be taken while you stay at the cottage! We can also offer needle felting workshops so you can learn this creative artform and take home a little sculpture that you made. Harpers Hill where Hillside Old Forge, HOF HUT, HOF COTTAGE and HOF Gallery is situated, is a conservation area with Owls (barn and tawny), Bats, Rooks, Woodpeckers, Otters etc co-existing with the community. The cottage is surrounded by meadow fields and our cottage gardens making it an idyllic setting for some quality R&R. With little light pollution, when the night sky is clear, the Milky Way and the big starry skies of your childhood are here to see- with minimal obstruction. There is also the River Lew, a stone's throw from the cottage and a great place to paddle in on a hot Summer's day or even in Winter if you have to run in after your dog like I have! (ooops).More

Interaction with guests
I'm normally pottering around as we live next door, so when you arrive, keys will be in the door and scones will be ready for you to munch on after your long journey to get here! I'm always around either in the house or the Gallery so I'm on hand if you need or can be busy if you dont need me.

It honestly couldn't have been better. We came here for a little break from busy Bristol and it completely exceeded expectations (they were already high!). Siobhan was a lovely, relaxed host and her art studio is an added bonus :-) Amazing hot tub and outside...More

We were lucky enough to be stopping in the newly built Hof Hut. It’s hard to find the words to describe how wonderful the experience was. The hut is beautiful designed and decorated in a shabby chic way. It offers 5 star luxury, from the...More

About the neighbourhood
Northlew is a pretty former market village with many Grade II listed buildings /thatched cottages, surrounded by stunning scenery around the foothills of Dartmoor.The village can be found approx. 7 miles north west of Okehampton with its castle ruins (and Waitrose!) and 5 miles west of the ancient town of Hatherleigh (and its Ruby market every Tuesday). Bude and the North Cornish coast is 24miles west. The exclusive Dartmoor town of Chagford is 22 miles east, Launceston (15miles) and the pannier market town of Tavistock (18 miles)- to the South. Northlew is therefore in the middle of no-where but is central for everything!We have 1 general store where you can buy essentials, a post office on Fridays, a lovely pub - The Green Dragon.
How to get there
If you are coming via A30 its best not to take the first exit to Okehampton but the 2nd one- Sourton cross exit. Turn right onto A386 follow for a mile or so to first roundabout after the Manor hotel, turn right , keeping on the A386 you come to another roundabout where its signposted left to Northlew. Then after following the road for 200yards or so, 2nd left turn- again signposted Northlew and & the Grange. Follow this road for next 4-5 miles and you will arrive at Northlew. There is parking for 1 car at HOF HUT.
