Welcome


Nestled in a coombe overlooking the beautiful Roncombe Valley, Starcombe Cabin provides a dog-friendly, peaceful retreat, with stunning south-facing views. Excellent walking opportunities are directly accessed from the property. Situated close to beaches at Sidmouth, Branscombe, Beer and Seaton. Within 4 miles of Honiton, a bustling market town.

The cabin is on one level, accessed via a slope. It sleeps 4 with a super-king bed in each of the two bedrooms, which can also be separated into two single beds. An additional single bed can be accommodated in one of the bedrooms.

A haven of peace and tranquillity, Starcombe is surrounded by farmland and wildlife with various species of birds as regular visitors, together with pheasants, rabbits and the occasional deer. An ideal spot for artists, bird-watchers, walkers, or writers. Riding is available nearby. There is also easy access to Knapp Copse Nature Reserve, Blackbury Camp (hill fort), a honey farm and the Donkey Sanctuary. At night, a perfect location for star-gazing.

The cabin has good eco-friendly credentials with solar panels and a recently installed air-sourced heating system. There is a cosy wood-burner in the sitting room for colder weather. Water is sourced from the local spring.

We are dog-friendly and welcome 1 or 2 well-behaved dogs.

There are three seating areas around the cabin, one East-facing for morning sun, one West-facing for evening use and the third South-facing for use at any time of the day with panoramic views of the valley.

Wi-Fi is available, but we can also offer a digital detox. it is a chance to escape to the peace and tranquillity of a simpler life, indulging in the opportunity to appreciate the natural world which surrounds you.

Access is via a steep narrow lane and a track across a field, but the drive is worth it! There is parking for 2 guest cars and a turning space. 

We also have a self-contained double bedroom with en-suite facilities in a separate building. Starcombe is our home as well as our business and we love to share it.
