We have become addicted to booking properties through Canopy and Stars since discovering La Maison Ronde in the Dordogne last year. Our second foray with this eco-friendly glamping company which specialises in the quirky and green was to Jackson's Cabin, a beautifully crafted hand-built dwelling for up to four hidden away in Blackawton, near Totnes. Anyone who knows the area, as we do, will know there is no shortage of things to do, places to go and delights to experience – the coast is near, pottering in arty Totnes is hard to beat and two of our favourites, Sharpham's Vineyard and Agatha Christie's house, are within easy reach. Gorgeous eateries abound, but we used none of them as the sheer bliss of cooking and eating in the cabin by the woodburner was too hard to resist. The cabin is a visual delight and equipped with everything you'll need, not least the fabulous huge bed. There are also two bunks, which the owners (who built it) feel are too small for adults, and granted the top one involves a climb up a wooden ladder, but it didn't put me off lying up there to relax. We were greeted with a home-made loaf, and there is a private garden. There's a wood-fired sauna at extra cost, baking, feeding chickens, and art tuition – but we just wanted to do our own thing. We loved it – only small niggles were that there's no lock on the door (which I suppose is no different from camping) and you do have to get the woodburner lit when you come back in (though it was lit for us for our arrival). And the weather was awful. But we certainly hope to go back.
