We strongly recommended that you are protected by holiday/travel insurance prior to making a booking.


All bookings via our online system should be treated as provisional until you receive confirmation email. To secure your booking a non-refundable deposit of 30% (or full payment) of the cost of your stay is required. Bookings must be paid in full 8 weeks before your stay. If the booking is less than 6 weeks from the date of your stay, the full price of the stay is required.

Payment can be made by debit or credit card on line at the time of your booking. Alternatively, you can pay by bank transfer. Confirmation of the booking will be sent after the deposit (or full payment), has been received, for bacs payments please email stay@devonheavenhideaways.co.uk to inform us this is how you have paid. If the balance is not paid by the due date Devon Heaven Hideaways reserves the right to re-let the property and retain the deposit.

When you submit a booking and payment via our online reservation system you will be requested to read and accept these terms and conditions of booking. You will receive an automatically generated booking confirmation and payment summary by email to the email address you provided. This email forms a contract between you and Devon Heaven Hideaways.

Devon Heaven Hideaways only accepts bookings from persons over 18 years of age. We are strictly adults only and the maximum number in the accommodation is two. Devon Heaven Hideaways reserves the right, at all times, to refuse or cancel a booking.

We will do our upmost to ensure you stay in the property you booked but may, very occasionally, have to move your reservation into the alternate property.


If under the unfortunate circumstance you become ill on your stay and  return to your home. No refunds will be due. If you are not well enough to drive home, you must contact a health professional immediately for advice.

If you are unable to travel due to personal illness (e.g. Coronavirus or other illness) our cancellation policy applies.

If Government policies restrict travel and you are unable to travel to stay with us, you will have the option to receive a full refund or postpone your stay to a later date (subject to any changes in prices applicable for the new dates) for up to 12 months.


Your accommodation will be ready by 3.00pm on the day of arrival. We are located in a Special Area of Conservation and, consequently, there is limited external lighting on site, because of this, we ask for all arrivals by 9pm, all year round. Your accommodation must be vacated by 10am on day of departure.


Cancellation by the Holidaymaker
Cancellation of the booking by the holidaymaker should be Emailed to:- stay@devonheavenhideaways.co.uk with a read receipt or follow up phone call to 07710970955 to confirm receipt of it.

If you cancel less than 8 weeks before the start of your holiday, we will endeavour to re-let your accommodation. If we are unable to do so, we regret that we will be unable to refund any monies paid. Should you give us more than 8 weeks notice, we will refund monies paid, less your deposit, or reschedule your stay for another date. An administration fee of £50 will be charged in this instance. We recommend that you have appropriate holiday insurance cover.

If you are unable to travel due to personal illness (e.g. Coronavirus or other illness) our cancellation policy applies.

If Government policies restrict travel and you are unable to travel to stay with us, you will have the option to receive a full refund or postpone your stay to a later date (subject to any changes in prices applicable for the new dates) for up to 12 months.


We charge £30 for one small/med dog in the properties and £50 for two small dogs. We provide a blanket, water bowl and a doggy treat to enjoy whilst on their stay with us. If you are bringing a dog, we ask you to keep them off the furniture and bedding. Please do not wash them in the property bathrooms. We often have sheep grazing in our fields so, when onsite, we ask that your dog is kept on a lead and under control at all times. Please clear up after your dog with the poo bags provided. We ask that you do not leave your dog alone in the cabin at any time.  If you want to bring your dog/s, you must agree to these rules at the time of booking.


We want all our guests to enjoy a peaceful, relaxing stay with us. To keep the meadow tranquil, and so as not to disturb the wildlife or other guests, please do not play loud music or radios outside the properties as noise is amplified as it travels up the valley. We also ask you to be conscious of how much noise you are making around the camp fire at night. After 10.30pm the only sound that should be generally audible in the field is hooting owls, the snuffling of the badgers and a low murmuring of our guests enjoying the sunset and some tranquil star gazing.

We reserve the right to ask your party to leave if there is repeated noise after having received two warnings. As you will have breached the terms of your contract with us, no refunds will be given.


If you are bringing your bike on holiday with you, please ensure you have your own insurance. – our business insurance does not cover guests bicycles.


We currently do not have an EV Charging point.


Due to the high fire risk with a wooden structure, the use of candles and tea lights is not permitted inside the cabins.


Due to the high fire risk with a wooden structure, the use of fireworks, sparklers and Chinese lanterns are not permitted across the entire site, at any time.


We provide a generous basket of dried, split logs and kindling for normal usage of the wood burning stove and firepit. If you do require extra logs, they can be purchased onsite for £10 a bag. The BBQ works best with charcoal.


Please leave the accommodation tidy and let us know if anything gets broken, so we can replace it for our next guest. We will only charge for replacement in exceptional circumstances, as we expect a degree of wear and tear. If damage is directly attributable to the guest, then we reserve the right to request payment up to £150 from the guest. Guests will be charged for any item(s) that are removed or lost from the accommodation.


Smoking is not permitted in the cabins or outside on the wooden deck area. If you smoke in the meadow, please dispose of your butts responsibly.


Should there be a failure in a utility service (e.g. water, heating, electricity, sewerage) please notify us immediately and we will aim to restore the service as quickly as possible. However, should any utility service failure extend beyond a 12 hour period from notification, for your health and safety reasons you will be asked to leave the accommodation and your accommodation fee for the duration lost will be fully refunded or you will be offered to re-book for another time, subject to availability.

grounds that could not reasonably have been foreseen. In such instances, refunds will be at the discretion of The Roost management.


Every endeavour is made to ensure your stay with us is memorable for all the right reasons. However, we do recognise that from to time things do go wrong. In these circumstances, it is the responsibility of the holidaymaker to make any such problem known to the property owner (or their representative) immediately it becomes apparent, thereby giving the property owner the opportunity to correct the situation.
