The Beach Hut

Muddy says: Robinson Crusoe, I’ve pinched your island! Fancy an off-grid beach bolthole made just for two?

There are beach stays and then there is The Beach Hut. Just four miles off the coast road near Plymouth and one of six holiday homes at Carswell Farm Cottages, you could be cast away on a desert island, marooned in your own private cove, with just an outdoor hot tub and a sky full of stars for company. This tiny stone bolthole is perfect for love birds, day-dreamers and would-be Robinson Crusoe’s. Switch off for the weekend and watch the waves roll in as you snuggle in the hammocks and a romantic mezzanine made for two.

Not for the faint-hearted, it’s a fifteen minute trek to your car with your luggage, with no phone signal and no electricity – just a kitchen stocked with eco-friendly basics and a flickering log-burner to keep you toasty. But think: the wifi-free bliss of knowing you can’t check your emails even if you wanted to. And that location: a private beach all to yourself – you won’t be sending out an SOS, believe me.

Prices start from £550 for a two night stay.
