Tangled Bank is the perfect place for nature lovers

Switch off from it all at Tangled Bank, a rural retreat in the heart of Devon

Breathe clean air and hear nothing but birdsong.

We are a quiet site with a strict no-noise policy after 10pm. Our cottages are set in an eighteen acre farmstead, which is a haven for wildlife, with a variety of micro-habitats including a natural ground-fed pond, rain garden, ancient woodland, hay meadows and a babbling brook. Deer, foxes, stoats, weasels, voles, tawny owls, rabbits, hares, buzzards, kestrels and woodpeckers are just a few of the creatures that call Tangled Bank their home. Check our camera traps for the latest images of our animal inhabitants, maybe even help us set them up and see what you can capture on film.

For those who want to venture out, we have direct access to a variety of footpaths and bridleways. With Exmoor, stunning beaches, coastal walks and the Tarka trail on our doorstep, there are plenty of ways to get outdoors and enjoy the very best that nature has to offer. We are an ethically minded and environmentally aware company; keen custodians of the land intent on preserving the beautiful Devon countryside for future generations.

Uncomplicated comfort, connecting you with nature

Feed the alpacas and gather eggs for breakfast. Make new friends at fireside gatherings. Laze in a hammock, spot wildlife in the woods or delve through the games trunk. Cook up a smoke-licked family feast in the Dutch oven, count the stars as night falls,  enjoy a glass of champagne in the hot tub as the sun sets over the valley.
