This wonderful wooden retreat is a luxury love nest for two seeking a countryside escape away from it all. Nestled amongst a canopy of trees and with a gorgeous wooden hot tub, expect total peace and seclusion - you'll feel a million miles away from your everyday life. Country-chic inside with gorgeous wooden floors, natural colours throughout and light, airy rooms, this is a calm, peaceful spot with a paired-back look with the most luxurious finishing touches. A mini-wilderness retreat for two - perfect!

Living and eating

The main living space is large and spacious, with the seating area and large wood burning stove at one end and the kitchen at the other. The kitchen, with gorgeous dark blue cabinets and sleek wooden worksurface, holds everything you need to create romantic meals for your loved one, whilst the sweet dark wooden dining table is made for long, loving dinners together. The living area has a cosy velvet sofa and eye-catching bronze coffee table where you can snuggle up together in front of the flickering fire and watch a film or two, or maybe listen to your favourite tunes on the Sonos sound system. Alternatively, on warmer days open the balcony and relax outside, gazing out over the fields and countryside beyond - what better way to unwind.


The simple, country-style bedroom is made for luxurious lie-ins where morning alarms are firmly switched off! The super king size bed, made locally from reclaimed wood, is super-comfy whilst a chaise lounge adds a touch of glamour. Stable doors open out onto a balcony where you're met by a verdant canopy of trees. The vaulted ceiling adds height and space to the room and Velux windows make it an airy, light retreat to escape to at the end of the day.


There's a shower room with large flower head shower plus a heated rail to keep towels warm and fluffy.

Outdoor space

The sheltered balcony is ideal for lazy afternoons whilst there's also deckchairs, a firepit and a barbeque for a spot of alfresco dinner in the garden surrounded by trees.

Tucked amongst the trees, you'll find the gorgeous wood-fired Eco hot tub where you can relax with just the sounds of the woods accompanying you. The tub will be filled and the fire will be laid for you, so all you'll need to is light the match!


There is plenty of private parking.


Bodhi has WiFi so if you need to stay in touch with the outside world you can.


This is one of our pet-free properties.

In the Area

Being deep in the Devonian countryside, this is an ideal spot for nature-lovers and explorers, with walks a-plenty (Dartmoor National Park is literally on your doorstep) or cycling if you prefer along the paths, tracks and hills. Make sure to visit picturesque Canonteign Falls, a Victorian folly with England's highest manmade waterfall of nearly 70 meters, whilst the city of Exeter is a must with its incredible cathedral. Totnes is lovely too, with a real alternative vibe and fab independent shops. Another great thing to try locally is the steam railway which runs from Totnes to Buckfastleigh.

Uncover a romantic adventure at our Devonshire retreat for two, where country-chic interiors and a wood-fired hot tub promise a woodland escape like no other...

We know how gorgeous our retreats are, but don’t just take our word for it – here’s what previous guests say about Bodhi Barn:

Sarah was absolutely brilliant throughout our stay - we were greeted with a pre-heated hot tub, as well as a delicious bottle of Prosecco and bar of yummy chocolate - what an absolute treat!

Bodhi Barn far exceeded our already high expectations. Location was perfect, hot tub view to lambs and deer in the adjoining field accompanied by evening chorus that moved over to a range of tawny and barn owl calls was idyllic. The barn was far more spacious than expected, we slept to the sound of a running brook and our welcome with the hot tub ready to use and wood burner on, couldn't have been more welcoming. Staying at the end of March, meant we saw all weather's imaginable but we were more than happy to stay put, when things turned biblical.... relax and enjoy everything Bodhi Barn had to offer.

My partner and I had a wonderful long weekend at Bodhi Barn. The location was stunning, private and the perfect setting for a getaway. Furnishings are beautiful and the wood fired hot tub made our stay even better. Everything about our stay was faultless and owners Sarah and James were helpful throughout our stay. We would 100% recommend Bodhi Barn.

Peaceful location, great place to relax and unwind. Lovely scenic walks to two local pubs. Beautiful and comfortable retreat, helpful hosts but not intrusive. Love it here.

Sarah was a fabulous host and went above and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible including extending our checkout time!

Absolutely amazing

Bohdi barn is in a beautiful location with excellent facilities. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The fire and hot tub were lit for us before our arrival and the welcome pack was excellent. Within 20 minutes of arriving we were lounging in the hot tub with a glass of cold prosecco - well done Jim and Sarah, excellent hosts. The engine house is also spectacular.

The location was perfect and the owners were lovely, being very helpful and responsive.

Very cosy with the log burner and loved the hot tub, we were very glad we had asked for it to be ready when we arrived! Lovely welcome pack. Exceeded our expectations, thank you.Very cosy with the log burner and loved the hot tub, we were very glad we had asked for it to be ready when we arrived! Lovely welcome pack.

Excellent retreat, clear instructions and great communication all round. Warm and cosy, wonderful location and hosts.

Excellent barn in an excellent location - highly recommended, lovely place to relax in.

Fantastic! We both feel very relaxed and refreshed after our stay at the barn. It more than matched our expectations and everything was so clean and tidy and very well equipped with everything you would need. The location too was perfect, lovely and green surroundings, peaceful and tranquil. The owners really impressed me with their welcome pack too. All vegan products which was such a pleasant surprise, very thoughtful and generous. We hope that we will be staying again soon!

Lovely location. Very clean . Attention to detail was good. Very pleasant stay. Sarah and James were fabulous hosts made us feel very welcome

Bodhi Barn is one of our favourite places. Everything you need, total peace and quiet, your own hot tub and at night you can see the stars and hear various sounds of nature all around. Lots of nice walks without needing to take the car out and good pub in walking distance. It’s so good we got engaged here, honeymooned here and returned for our 1st anniversary. Bliss.

Warm, relaxing and inviting. The hosts Sarah and James made us feel really welcome and let us enjoy our stay uninterrupted. A great couples retreat.


Bodhi Barn is absolutely beautiful. A haven away from it all. Decorated really nicely and finished to a high spec. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could ever need. The goodies were great quality and an unexpected bonus. We didn’t have any wifi when we arrived and we contacted Sarah who quickly came down with James to help. They were both very friendly and resolved the problem very quickly. Overall we were very happy and had an amazing stay.

The hamper was a nice touch. As well as the playing cards & games.

This place is a hidden gem, we instantly felt at ease, the décor was so tasteful and the owners kindly lit the wood fired hot tub and log burner for our arrival with a welcome hamper which was very well thought of. The bed and pillows are just divine and we left feeling completely and utterly relaxed and honestly, neither one of us knew relaxation could feel so good! Thank you Sarah and James x

We loved the Bodhi. Absolutely beautiful setting, cosy and bijoux. A great hideout for chilling and spending quality time together as a couple. Thank you.

Absolutely fab. From the location, views, wood burner hot tub and log burner to the personal goodies left by the owner. A very special place and would highly recommend it!

A beautiful and relaxing escape, which we both thoroughly enjoyed.Loved the seclusion and privacy as well as a brilliant recommendation for food at The Manor Inn, which was incredible. Lovely welcome hamper and little extras too. 5 minute walk to cannonteign falls was an unexpected surprise! Would definitely recommend to our friends and family. We will be coming again!!

Would highly recommend the Bodhi Barn for a quiet and comfortable holiday for a couple. The bed is super comfy and the place is so well equipped you’ll find everything you need there.

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay in this lovely retreat. Our every need was catered for, including some lovely unexpected treats on our arrival. The area is beautiful, so quiet and peaceful but not too far away from attractions. We felt so comfortable and very much at home here.

The ideal getaway. If you need somewhere to escape from the world for a few days this is the place to do it.

Absolutely stunning property, everything you need to escape the world for a while. Will be back for sure.

Warm, comfortable and finished to a very high standard. Even a welcome basket with eggs, fresh bread and a bottle of fizz for your arrival.

Great property in great location

This cottage is an epitome of perfection. Everything - from the minute we stepped in through the doors till we departed was catered for. The hosts were so very friendly and accomodated to our our every need promptly and efficiently. if you want to stay in a place thats a secluded retreat of your very own, connect with nature and bring you closer to whoever you share this retreat with - then no need to look further than bodhi barn- All we can say is thankyou so so much- its a piece of heaven on earth.

Excellent property and location for a quiet secluded getaway.

Amazing little hideaway when you just want to get away.

Beautiful property - with everything needed for a relaxing stay. The hot tub is a fantastic addition to help you fully relax. Great quality furniture and lovely welcome hamper. Highly recommend.

Amazing lodge the photos don’t do this place justice I would 100% recommend for anyone to stay here and I certainly will be returning! Boutique retreats did an amazing job at listing everything we needed to know and advising about local areas we could explore saved me lots of time in researching the place.

A wonderful relaxing escape, we were welcomed with a lit roaring fire and a beautiful hamper of local amenities and a steaming hot tub ready to use after a day of travelling it was perfect!

Fantastic location, beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean and more in the welcome pack than we anticipated which was a lovely surprise.

'Absolutely excellent 'home from home' that had everything you could wish for and more, in a peaceful and secluded location. Perfect. We would recommend Bodhi Barn 100%. It truly was a fabulous retreat for our Honeymoon' - August 2020
