Abingdon Couple

Just returned from a weeks stay at the cabin, had such a lovely break. Arrived to a welcome pack which had bottle of bubbly on ice. Sookie enjoyed the garden and the woods. Such a lovely cabin and very peaceful. Loved using the aga. Lyn was extremely nice and we would definitely stay here again.

A lovely weekend in beautiful surroundings. It is hard to add to the glowing reviews that Ash Mill Cabin rightly receives; we would certainly echo what previous guests have appreciated. The setting is perfect for switching off and enjoying a secluded spot of Devon countryside. We didn't venture far as the walks from the doorstep were so enjoyable; in particular, we and our water-obsessed Labrador loved the stream and meandering along its bank though woodland and meadow. We were made to feel very welcome by Lyn and we wanted for nothing in the cosy comfort of the cabin. Would be lovely to return in the future for a longer stay.... — Lynne Bradshaw, 17 Apr 2018
We had a fabulous time at Ash Mill cabin. It was a gem of a place.we loved our stay. Lynn was the perfect host, Nothing was too much trouble. The cream tea on arrival was so welcomed after the journey. The cabin was snug, comfy and had a lovely, homely, safe feel about it. We loved the fact that there was no mobile phone signal or WiFi so you can really switch off from the outside world and relax. The cabin is rural so for local amenities you do need a car to get around. Nearest shops are a few miles away, but that is not a negative point as we took a few provisions with us. The Aga in the kitchen was fantastic and kept the cabin warm. The outside space and woodland was great for the dogs, with lovely walks to explore down by the brook. The dogs loved it. We will definitely be going back. — Tracey, 23 Feb 2018

Our second visit to Ash Mill Cabin and just as wonderful as last years visit. A lovely welcome pack on arrival, bubbly on ice, scones, cream and jam as well as the lovely veg and eggs that Lyn gave us.
This cabin is exceptional, everything we needed was provided, warm and cosy, lovely walks for our dog. Absolutely 5star in every way and I'm sure we will be back.

Hemel Hempstead Couple

We had a wonderful time at Ash Mill Cabin. It was an idyllic place in wonderful surroundings. It was just what we needed for a week away.

Lyn was so friendly and welcoming, and with her lovely dogs she really couldn't have done any more to make the stay perfect. She was around if you needed her but was not at all intrusive and let us enjoy our stay.

We are hoping to return very soon.

Thank you.

Norwich Couple

Perfect for a relaxing week with the dogs in beautiful surroundings. Secure garden for two rather troublesome Jack Russells. Lovingly cared for by owner.
— Paul, 09 Jun 2017
Perfect getaway.. we enjoyed our stay in the cabin. Really relaxing and peaceful environment. Thank you Lynn. We will definitely go back — Dilshan & Shani, 29 May 2017


Excellent place to stay for the serenity, a place to get away from it all. Couldn't fault our stay in any way and the owner Lyn was such a nice person and ever helpful.
— Haydn, 24 May 2017
We really enjoyed our week at Ash Mill Cabin. It was so welcoming on arrival and on every return from being out. The warmth of the cabin was luxurious and all the facilities of excellent quality. Away from it all, it gave us the opportunity to relax. The adjacent woodland was lovely to walk through and the sound of the stream therapeutic. We visited when it was raining mostly, but it didn't matter as the cabin was a pleasure to be in and a good excuse not to go out! Lyn the host was lovely and very kind who provided the best scones I've ever tasted with cream and jam. All the rooms were a good size and the vaulted ceilings in the lounge and bedroom made it feel even more spacious. Yes would thoroughly recommend as an experience not to be missed. — Gail, 05 Mar 2017



We stayed at Ash Mill Cabin during a weekend in February. The temperature outside varied between 1 and 3 degrees however the cabin was warm and cosy with the Aga and woodburner and had everything you could possibly need. At night all you could hear was the nearby stream and and owls. As it was winter local amenities were few however most places we visited were within a 40 minute drive and this would be perfect if you wanted to sample the beaches and tourist areas during the day but stay in a secluded area away from the beaten track. Lyn (host) was very friendly.

I would definitely visit again.
— Jane, 10 Feb 2017
We have just spent 2 weeks, Jan 8th to Jan 22nd 2017 relaxing and just simply living in the most calming get and tranquil of locations. The cold winter nights where beaten back by the gorgeous warmth of the Aga and log burner. Within a day we felt we had already spent a week there... many thanks again... rich and Julie x
Thank you Lyn for our warm welcome and surprise home made scones and a bottle of bubbly.

— Richard Fairbrass , 22 Jan 2017



Such a fantastic place to stay! The cabin is so lovely and the little welcome treats were a really nice touch. We had an amazing Christmas at Ash Mill Cabin and would highly recommend it. The surrounding walks are beautiful... such a great place for dogs too.

Carrie
Sevenoaks Kent Couple

A totally relaxing holiday located in the woods. Log cabin was truly beautiful the only noise were the hooting owls and the stream. Complete darkness so amazing star gazing. Very comfortable log cabin, loved the aga and the fairy lights. Lyn was very welcoming, and cream tea and bubbles on arrival was the perfect start to a perfect holiday. Will be back to recharge our batteries.

We visited Ash Mill Cabin in the first week of July, as a peaceful relaxing get away and it was exactly that. The setting and surroundings were perfect for Man Wife and Dogs. We had lovely weather and also enjoyed a BBQ or two. We will defiantly be back to visit in another season.

This woodland cottage was fabulous, we couldn't fault anything, it was furnished and equipped to the highest standard, the woodland walks around were fantastic, We had a lovely cream tea waiting for us on arrival and a nice bottle of wine. Our dog enjoyed the walks and jumping into the stream. Thank you Lyn for a perfect week.

— Debbie & Simon, 07 Nov 2015



Quiet, secluded and picturesque. Plenty of places to visit within a short distance and lots of walks nearby. The dog loved it.
— Keith & Anthea, 30 Oct 2015


Being dog lovers meeting five Labradors was great. Our lab, oddly,fell in love with a chicken. The atmosphere and reception was brilliant. Really peaceful location. Walks on your doorstep. No light pollution, great views of the stars.
— David & Gaye, 16 Oct 2015



A really brilliant log cabin, very well equipped and a lovely welcome. The greyhound loved the local walks. Very peaceful and away from the hectic pace of modern life but near enough to visit the seaside and other attractions if wanted. Very good spot for wildlife
— Sue, 09 Oct 2015


We had a wonderful stay as Ash Mill Cabin. It was fully equipped with everything we needed and more! Very comfortable and the welcome bits were lovely. A real get away from everything place we would definitely go back.
— Vicki & Paul, 21 Aug 2015
Lyn,

What an utterly blissful weekend we have just had. Ash Mill Cabin is a gem of a retreat, and for us a much-needed place to unwind. I cannot tell you how comfortable we found it, and I am now entirely sold on having an Aga in my life....as is the (rather shouty) dog.

I will wait for a link from Cottages4You, to log a very positive review, but we both wanted to pass our thanks and admiration for a lovely environment, and for all the little touches - and the not so little, as the cream tea with fizz was the most wonderful thing to have on our arrival.

Very best wishes to you for the future, and to your collection of rather handsome dogs,

Melissa
— Melissa, 21 Jul 2015
Such a rare find. A lovely cabin full of charm and warmth with fantastic surroundings. There was nothing you could add to this well equipped and furnished cabin which was spotlessly clean. Cream tea and bubbly was devoured almost immediately and lovely too. A real getaway from it all place with some amazing walks by the river and through the woods. Perfect for those who like to have their dogs with them on holiday. Although the cabin was in easy reach of interesting places to visit we really did not want to be away from the cabin for long as its a true haven of peace and tranquility and very magical. — Gwenda & Bill Weeks, 22 May 2015
We spent 2 nights at Ashmill. It was exactly what our souls needed. Warm and sheltered from April storms, then when the sun finally appeared the views over the stream and woodlands were perfect. The cabin itself has all you need and baked potatoes in the Aga were an added bonus. The nearby village of Chumleigh has butchers, bakers and a local deli so you can stock up on supplies. No wifi or phone signal so you can truly escape from the world. — Sally, 06 Apr 2015
Four nights was not long enough! The cabin is a blissful haven in the most beautiful surroundings. It was a chilly day when we arrived and the log fire, bubbly on ice and home made scones complete with cream and jam were a delightful welcome. Lyn is very friendly and helpful, leaving us to our own devises but always helpful if we needed anything or any questions answered. We highly recommend a stay at Ash Mill, whether you have a dog in tow or not! — Hannah, Ric and Yogi the dog, 10 Feb 2015
Idyllic 4 days spent in the peace and quiet of the Cabin. We had some wonderful walks in the woods which we and our two black Labradors (Moshi & Obi) shared with Lyn and her 5 dogs it was great seeing all 7 run together - they were born in the Cabin and had not seen their Mum and fellow siblings for almost 2 years (since they were 9 weeks old!)
Would highly recommend the Cabin and we will certainly be back.
— Marion & Bob Sellwood, 18 Sep 2014
Thank you Lyn for a wonderful weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ash Mill Cabin and can only recommend it. From the beautiful location to the cabin itself everything was perfect and we couldn't have asked for more.We will definitely be back. — Teresa Dann and Christian Harvey, 19 Aug 2014
"Ash Mill Cabin is the perfect place to stay - beautifully furnished and near to lots of lovely towns and walking areas. The welcome hamper was a brilliant touch after an afternoon of travelling and the well-equipped kitchen was a bonus for us 'foodies' - meaning that we didn't have to always eat out. Lyn was a fantastic host and we would definitely stay again!"

We had a wonderful week at Ash Mill Cabin. The attention to detail and quality meant all the thoughtful gestures were hugely appreciated - from decent sharp knives and all the utensils and equipment you need (including board games and sieve!) to a fabulous welcome pack of home made scones, jam, cream and fizz, our hideaway week was wonderful. The peaceful setting is truly magnificent, and the large bath, aga and woodburning stove meant staying inside was fun - but we nested in the garden most of the time to enjoy the quiet, intimate setting. Great location too (we didn't miss wifi or mobile phone access - quite a surprise!), and close to Dartmoor, North Devon Coast and Exmoor. We had a lovely day at the Broomhill gallery/restaurant/sculpture park, thanks to a suggestion from Lyn. Thank you, Lyn, for being a discreet, supportive and knowledgeable host - we truly appreciated our time at the cabin. Liza and Ingo — Liza Kellett, 17 Jul 2014
A wonderful location - everything the place says it is. We had a warm welcome which included a cream tea waiting for us with home made scones, home-made bread, wine in the fridge and local sparkling cider etc....
Ideally situated to stay and explore the woods or the local area including Dartmoor, Exmoor and the NW Devon coast.
Our German Shepherd found the place an absolute delight.
Would definitely recommend staying here
