Escape the World of chaos @HOF HUT-a wooden hut offering a stunning rustic wood interior, uniquely built & designed by the owners. Larger than a shepherds hut, it contains everything you need to be able to shut yourselves away, in a beautiful rural setting. The space is open plan with bi-fold doors for you to fully enjoy the view, with an en-suite shower room. The immediate outside space-Japanese style hot tub pool, sunterrace, covered bar area, bbq/firepit are for use by HOF HUT guests ONLY.

When you arrive, we will briefly greet you in person but everything can be dealt with via Airbnb messaging while you are staying and a welcome info pack we send out before you arrive (please read!)

Please note for your peace of mind in this time of Covid, with all stays we will be ensuring our normal cleaning management is enhanced with the disinfecting of high use surfaces and Hot tub water changed after each stay. This should not affect your enjoyment of the Hut (might smell a bit bleachy/piney). Check in times therefore apply in order for us to make the hut perfect for you.

**** Mobile reception is very patchy but if you have a smart phone and click your Wifi calling button you can use your mobile through our wifi quite successfully- please ask us to help you if you require this service.



The detail....
Set in a conservation area, HOF HUT offers incredible views across to the foothills of Dartmoor. Yes Tor is the most prominent feature with its hourly changing weather patterns. We finished building the hut Autumn 2019 and it is a little sister to our other accommodation HOF Cottage which is listed on other sites inc Airbnb.
HOF HUT is completely unique from start to finish- exterior handmade by host Tim and all interior furniture, fixtures and fittings handmade by host Siobhan. Madly and uniquely creative as hopefully you can see from the pics. We give you the space you need but are also on hand to stoke the hot tub fire /sort anything hot tub related.
Being boutiquey, you get the very best of everything- quality bed linen, fluffy towels and robes, slippers, pillow treats + superior added extras like scones, bread & jam homemade. (Yes even during this time of covid).
There's a little diddy woodburner in the corner of the hut to warm your cockles after a hard day's hike on Dartmoor and all the wood you need for it (you really don't need much). A powerful rustic shower with its corrugated tin nuttiness & barking hand basin, and a kitchenette you can whip up anything you put your mind to with a smeg hob and panasonic combi microwave/grill. The TV is an LG smart one, meaning you can stream all your fave netflix/prime movies (and other peoples if they haven't logged out) and the hut has its own WiFi hub so the signal is pretty strong. We have upcycled recycling bins for you to use (please) and are passionate about repurposing items and protecting our little ecosystem here. Finally, there is a laundry room with washing machine/tumble dryer in our house that you can use- please just ask for the key.
So basically the hut has been purpose built for your comfort and ease of use whilst hopefully making you smile with its unique design, love and touches.
New for 2021- your own private carpark! Private parking and entrance to the hut, accessed from the back of the Hut.

Hof chillout area is a pallet bar and a semi enclosed wooden structure with solid tin roof and glass viewing windows. Looks more like a hide- from where you can see the wonderful countryside whilst you sit and read a book or two, play cards, sip your sundowners or play with our soppy Springer Tia if you want. It houses a spotting scope so you can view to the top of Yes Tor or the millions of stars on a clear night, cushions for the outdoor chairs and an airer for wet towels.
We provide complimentary marshmallows (subject to supply) for you to toast on our bioethanol fire, an overhead electric heater and blankets are also supplied for chilly nights.

The garden area is a cultivated space for you to relax in, with a small vineyard steps and a well, a separate shaded garden with fruit trees, the bbq & fire pit area and a space for a hammock & sunbeds to enjoy in fine weather. The garden borders our 3 acre field in which is currently housed mobile grass cutters (20 sheep- north of England mules). They will periodically come up to the fence to see you but they are super quiet so you wont notice them really.

Hof Japanese Onsen is based on a Japanese onsen or hot bath. It is totally private and made for sole use by guests in Hof Hut.
A completely unique hand built construction of cast concrete and repurposed wood, 8ft x 8ft with glass roof pergola. It is enclosed with clear view acrylic window/wooden framed panels so you can be snug whilst outside Winter does its worst. Normally heated to 38 degrees or thereabouts, your worries and time will simply slip away as you indulge in this magical experience- with just the hoot of an owl & sound of lapping water to disturb you. Make use of the fluffy robes, slippers and pool towels included in your stay.
We have added an air source heater so that will be the main heat source and woodburner only as a boost if necessary. Generally the temp will reach 38 degrees by about 7/8pm during the Summer,4/5pm in Winter, so that you can enjoy sundowners in the pool for a few hours. The heater and pump go off about 11pm. This means no noise so you can sleep soundly, and the pump starts again about 8.30am. The temp will have reduced by about 5-10 degrees over night and will therefore be a cooler dip during the day- a perfect plunge pool temp! The heater will normally go back on about 3pm to heat up the pool for another evening session. Cold ambient temp in the Winter for example, may require the woodburner to help boost the temp. Please ensure you replace the cover after each session, in order to help make the heating process as efficient as possible and help keep any wildlife out of the water :-)

***A daily pool cleaning service is offered, to start 3pm for approx 20mins and this is included as part of your package. This involves pool clean and underwater hoover, water chlorination check, sides wiped down and firebox refill. ***
Please also note Chlorine is an effective detergent against Covid -19 as set out in Public Health England website information. That is the info for swimming pools. Our hot tub has a vastly superior concentration of chlorine so its super effective. Please also note the hot tub water is changed after each stay and the pool sides are also cleaned down with bleach. We are therefore doing everything we can to make your stay an enjoyable yet healthy one.

Last but not least- you'll get bored of us saying this but it really is a place only for GUESTS OVER 25 YR S OLD. It really doesn't work for babies, children or people younger than 25 and we are sorry about that but please don't run the risk of having your booking cancelled if you are.

¿Dónde me voy a quedar?

Northlew, Okehampton, Reino Unido

Northlew is a sleepy backwater and a fantastic location to escape the big bad world as it currently is.
You will immediately notice how quiet this place is. Owls hooting, horses neighing, the donkey next door baying for his food- are just some of the noises you will hear as you dial down to nature at its very best.
The fresh air, big starry skies, peace & quiet will do you a world of good- that's a promise. The 2 churches walk of about 4 miles will give you all the flavour and perspective you need to understand the area.

btw streetview is about 10 years out of date if you search us!

The village is set in the foothills of Dartmoor, 12 mins from the nearest town (Okehampton) population of about 600. It 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 small but thriving market on Fridays, a lovely pub - The Green Dragon where you can enjoy a good pub meal and local ales & be welcomed into the heart of the community. If sobriety beckons (!) there is a wonderful 15th Century church with many ornately carved pews, screens and roof beams, with the bells being rung each Sunday subject to the farmers not tending to their sheep/goats/cows! We also have a Methodist chapel.

Moved to Northlew, Devon with husband Tim in 2014. Since then we've suddenly found our diy & design skills and hopefully created a quiet little haven for people to relax and enjoy. I'm a product photographer, interior designer and felt sculptor for the remainder of the time when I'm not knee deep in linen ironing :-) We have 1 dog- Tia a small and soppy b/w springer spaniel who loves new guests who pay attention to her and 1 b/w cat- Bob who does his own thing and you generally won't see- unless you have cans of fish in your suitcase! 6 things i can't live without- The love of a good dog, a decent pair of waterproof boots, a needle felting needle, my nikon dslr, my dewalt multi tool & Mr W.

Durante tu estancia

I'm normally pottering around as we live next door, so when you arrive, keys will be in the door but I will normally greet you and show you around.

I work from home so I'm either in the house or the Gallery and therefore on hand if you need or can be busy if you don't need me. Just message me through Airbnb or ring our doorbell :-)

I will send you a welcome pack with Hut details and local info, just before your stay.
