Rest+Wild, Exmoor



Five gorgeous off-grid cabins with outdoor baths, each in their own field in Exmoor National Park (each sleeps 2)

Alfresco tub

Dog friendly

Eco conscious



Space & setting.

If a place was an exhale, this would be it. Off grid, off line, and off-the-beaten track, these cabins were created with slow and sustainable living in mind, giving you space to breathe and time to truly switch off in the dreamiest of settings. Hidden on the edge of Exmoor National Park, nature’s medicine can be absorbed through all the senses: morning birdsong, grounding walks in the woods, the smell of sun-baked or rain-sprinkled earth, and a patchwork of greens as far as the eye can see. Take it all in from your alfresco bathtub, or through the huge windows that frame views stretching all the way to the wilds of Dartmoor.

Nearby are rugged moorlands to be roamed, and natural lakes to be swum in — plus there’s a gorgeous stretch of coastline to be explored on day trips. Later, watch the sun setting over the hills as you toast the day with a cold beer. Evenings are extra special too; being in a Dark Sky Reserve makes stargazing a real wonder. And what will follow is the best night’s sleep you’ve had in years, wrapped in linen sheets and the sound of silence.

Getting here: drive, or train to Tiverton Parkway and taxi (35 mins)

Exmoor Escape Cabin 4 - Daisy Wingate Photography

“I wanted to create an antidote to modern life. I was finding the pace of city life exhausting, with its relentless focus on productivity. We have the ability to always be ‘on’ but it’s not always good for us. One of the antidotes I found was going into the countryside and switching off. So I wanted to provide small spaces where I and others can do the same.” Founder, Jimmy

The sheer style of the interiors: hotel-room style beauty deep in the wilds of Exmoor. It’s a heady mix.

  • "It’s a really peaceful few days away, with none of the buzz or stress of normal life but with all the creature comforts of an amazing shower, comfortable bed, cosy log burner, views for days and just time to relax. The cabins are amazing - special shout out to the epic outdoor bath, a hot bubble bath with views and sheep as company after a hike is heaven!"

Absolutely. However, due to roaming livestock, dogs must be kept on a lead at all times — you can request a stake and long lead. There is an additional fee of £25 per dog for the extra cleaning (payable upon booking), and owners are liable for any damage their dog causes to the cabin or surrounding farmland and livestock.

Yes of course; please BYO travel cot.
