Casual Elegance in a Cabin in the Woods

A Good Mix of High Style and Comfort


The Secret Holt, a self-catering abode located in Devon, United Kingdom, lives up to its moniker, and more!  It’s nestled in the middle of the woods, surrounded by towering trees, complete with streams and various kinds of flowering plants, and forest denizens.  Its architectural design and classic interior space is perfect for romance or a warm family gathering – every nook perfect for lounging around in comfort and style.  It’s a taste of sybaritic lifestyle.  Despite the air of formality and classic elegance in the interior spaces, there is also a casual and laid back appeal, brought about by the eclectic mix of objects and furnishings, with colors and patterns that remind you to relax and take things easy.  So, take a look at these photos, then tell us what you think on our Facebook Page!


Tucked away at the end of a beautifully unmade lane, this cute-as-a-pie love nest is further dwarfed by the soaring Scot Pines that surround it.  The whispers of magic and ancient folklore can almost be heard echoing through the forest…. An enchanting Dartmoor cabin nestled on top of the world surrounded by woods, streams, moorland and rainbows; simply perfect for honeymoons and romantic self-catering breaks with a difference.


There are a handful of granite steps by the side of the Secret Holt which lead up to the garden that sits above the unique cabin boasting beautiful woodland views across the forest.  The surroundings really come alive in springtime when the snowdrops, violets, bluebells, azaleas, foxgloves and tulips provide a riot of colour, with the giant bamboos in the garden adding an almost tropical feel.  The neighbouring owners are passionate about the local area and will be only too happy to suggest places to visit which only a true local would know . . .
