The small town of Sheldon nestles on the edge of the Blackdown Hills in Devon.

The Log Cabin is situated in the grounds of the owner’s trout farm. As its name suggests, it is a log cabin, made from pine and it offers accommodation for up to 4 people. The bedrooms and living accommodation are all spread out across one level and the living area has been designed in an open-plan style, comprising a kitchen, dining area and living area that has its own inglenook fireplace, so that you can enjoy the benefits of this region, even in the colder months.


What a great place! Hidden away, and nice and quiet. Hiking in the woods and fishing were great, and the owners were very kind. Look forward to return visits.
Mr Sendre

The setting was fabulous. We were able to just leave our cabin and walk through the woods behind us on a crazy wood adventure following the stream that led us to sheldon woods. We also loved the basicness of it and we really enjoyed the log fire and the whole back to nature feel. The owner was very friendly but left us to it. It was nice to not have any signal and just escape without the kids and just enjoy doing very little. I think anyone that visits here needs at least two nights as it takes a night and a day to fully appreciate the simplicity of the cabin. This is a superb place for dog walking and kids as the exploring we did was fantastic. We will visit again when the kids are a little older and they can explore the woods and stream safely.

On arrival it was pouring with rain and we were told by owner we couldn't park next to lodge because of weather, we were eventually told no one is ever whatever the weather allowed to park by it as all men drivers are irresponsible and would drive on grass and land their car in the ditch. This ruined our holiday as we had to walk up a lane with all our belongings when we unpacked car. Every time we went out we got wet, dirty and cold. The lodge is lovely, but the inside needs a complete make over. The sofas are very flat and uncomfortable and also smelled of body odour and the single beds were very old and you could feel every coil spring. The electric would cut out if you turned the back right ring on, and unfortunately it could do with a good clean. I'm sure it was amazing when it was first built and decorated, but not now
