About Dreamhuts Retreat

Suitable For

Glamping only. So no campervans, caravans or tents. Well behaved dogs welcome (1 per booking; additional charge) and groups welcome to book both huts.


Dreamhuts Retreat is right on the edge of the Blackdown hills AONB and offers excellent walking (and mountain biking if you bing your own bikes). The traditional market town of Honiton is well worth a visit – the market is held along the wide High Street of this historic lace town every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday – while it takes just over half an hour to reach the cathedral city of Exeter (and the same amount of time to the nearest beach). Closer to home, the local bird of prey centre (3 miles; 01884 277297) is a novel attraction where you can try your hand at falconry. For history, try the National Trust-owned properties of Killerton House (7 miles) and Knightshayes Court (16 miles).

Food & Drink

Pre-order luxury welcome hampers, breakfast hampers and tasty BBQ hampers before you arrive at the site or check out the local pubs. There are three great spots within a 30 minute walk. The Keepers Cottage Inn (1¼ miles; 01884 266247) is closest, while Broadhembury (1½ miles) is home to a delightful tearooms and a good village shop for essentials, plus the second pub, The Drewe Arms (01404 841267). The third good local is the Wyndham Arms in Kentisbeare (1½ miles; 01884 266327) where there is also a village shop.

Family Friendly

It's 6 miles to Diggerland (08712 277007), the popular, digger-themed theme park that's "bucket's of fun" and 4½ miles to an award-winning family attraction called The Bear Trail (01392 881780), where you can take on a long and often muddy adventure course.

Perfect place to unwind

We arrived on Monday at 3pm and a few minutes later Michelle brought our pre-ordered Hampers. The contents was definitely luxury. The huts are clean, comfortable and well equipped. Having unpacked we popped the Champagne and relaxed in the late afternoon sunshine in the hot tub, whilst our 2 labradors lay on the grass in the piece and quiet. It was just what we needed to recharge our batteries and didn't feel the need to go anywhere. Matt and Michelle are an absolute delight and are on hand if needed. I want to tell the world how beautiful Dream huts are, but also part of me wants to keep this hidden gem secret, but hey we aren't selfish and everyone needs to go there. Thank you so much Matt and Michelle

Perfect getaway

We needed a good staycation after months of non stop working and what a place to have it! The location is fantastic with local pubs in easy distance with food to drool over. The hut is beautiful and makes it better it has a private hot tub. The dog thoroughly enjoyed all the space available to him. Would highly recommend, the owners were lovely!

Relaxation personified, a fabulous place to escape to!!

We stayed 4 nights and could’ve stayed forever!! The hut was beautifully presented, spotless and just as described. Michelle & Matthew were brilliant hosts, Michelle had made a cake and put banners up for my 50th Birthday which was a lovely surprise. The views are stunning with every sunset watched from the hot tub whilst drinking fizz!! Thank you, we will be back xx
