July 4th 2020 – The New Independence Day

So hidden deep down at page 31 of the guidelines the government has announced that all hospitality businesses must remain closed until 4th July at the very earliest.

We are of course currently closed at Coastal Cabins and will remain so until we are told we are allowed to re-open. We are however still taking bookings for later this year and through into 2021.

We also have a very flexible booking policy which means that if due to Covid-19 you cannot travel to us then you can reschedule your stay to either later this year or anytime in our 2021 season. There are no charges for moving your booking. We are also being very flexible about when balance payments are due.

We must be clear that we can only open if the rate of infection continues to fall. So for now please stay at home, stay safe and let’s beat this. Then just maybe we can all have a bit of a break this summer!

For future bookings please have a look here:


Any questions at all then drop us a message and we’ll be happy to help!

Bucks Mills


Back in February and before most of us had heard of Covid-19, Paige and I took a little day trip to Bucks Mills. Despite being teeny tiny it’s one of my favourite places. Here’s a sneak peak of somewhere to visit when this is all over. #somethingtolookforwardto

Hidden away down a little lane off the A39 you’ll find Bucks Mills. Not many people know this stunning hamlet even exists. The sign off the road is small and unassuming and so is Bucks Mills – but’s that’s the beauty of it.

Untouched for centuries, this village feels like stepping back in time. The narrow winding road is carved into the hillside with lush trees all around. Park up in the (free!) car park and meander down the lane past a collection of picturesque cottages.

A babbling river follows the road which eventually cascades down the clifftop to join the sea. After a short walk downhill you’ll catch a glimpse of water, which soon opens up to a breathtaking view of a vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean.

A few minutes after and you’ll find yourself on Bucks Mills beach. With miles of uninterrupted rugged coastline it’s not difficult to find your own spot of heaven here.

There’s no pub, there’s no shop – just you and nature at its most raw and uncommercial.

Bucks Mills is just 15 mins from Coastal Cabins. We’re closed at the moment, but book now for later this year or next and visit this magical spot:


P.s. There may not be a pub at Bucks Mills, but just up the road in Woolsery is one of the BEST pubs in the area – The Farmers Arms is a must visit!



Hartland – The land of hidden beaches

Recently we spotted this great article in The Telegraph entitled ‘Britain’s 20 most beautiful hidden beaches’. The Hartland Peninsula is peppered with numerous hidden beaches, some that only the locals know about!

The beauty of this is that even on the hottest day of the year you could be the only person there. Some of these beaches can be hard to get to, and tricky to find but they are WELL worth it.

Coming in at number 3 in the article is the magical gem Speke’s Mill Mouth. If 50 metre waterfalls, clear rock pools and rolling waves are your thing then this is THE place to put on your post lockdown wish list.

Have a read of the full article here:


For a real insiders guide to the best beaches in our area book a break at Coastal Cabins:


We are closed at the moment but flexible bookings can be made for later in the year, or #planahead for 2021.


Glamping in the garden

Have you ever heard the saying, when life gives you lemons…make lemonade? So what do you do when you own 10 empty glamping cabins and you’re not allowed to leave your home – you go glamping of course!

This is the adventures of Mr and Mrs Coastal Cabins (mum and dad) having a night away in Hartland Quay Cabin. I’m particularly jealous of the Gin! Anyone else attempting lockdown without any alcohol? 😩

Hartland Quay Cabin is a Couples Cabin sleeping up to 2 people in a Kingsize bed, plus up to two small children (max age 6 years) in a small double sofa bed. We also have Family Cabins which sleep 4 people in a Kingsize bed and bunk beds. All cabins have a private deck and stunning views over looking the field or lake.

I don’t know about you but i’d really like to be there right now!

For now we are closed, please stay home and stay safe. Our cabins will be all ready and waiting for you when this is all over. Book now for 2021 here:


If you have any questions at all about our cabins then send us an email or message on social media! #asktheowners


2021 – Something to look forward to

We’re only 3 months in, but i’m pretty much over 2020 already! Why not look ahead to next year and have something to look forward to. We’ve just uploaded our prices and availability for 2021 on our website.

There’s still lots of space at the moment so why not book now and have your pick of all the cabins.


It’s oh so quiet

Today, Friday 3rd April was supposed to be the first day of the season for us at Coastal Cabins Glamping. The cabins are all sparkling clean, freshly painted and looking their best, but there’s no one here. It’s a strange feeling, and one that makes us feel sad. But we know that this time will pass.

We’re making the most of our daily exercise walks to really explore our lovely corner of North Devon. Working in this hectic industry we often don’t get time to really appreciate where we live. It really is stunning!

Until we open again we’ll continue to share with you some highlights of our area. Because after all – everyone needs something to look forward to!

If you want to book for later this year then we are still taking bookings. You can book in the knowledge that you’ll be protected by our new ‘Flexible Booking Policy’



Keeping Busy

Well one thing is for sure, when all this has gone away these cabins are going to look bloody amazing! After 2 weeks of isolation my wonderful parents have managed to paint all the cabins (inside and out), stain all 10 decks, paint the BBQ cabin, wash everything that can be possibly washed, planted lots of lovely new planters…the list goes on.

Nothing like keeping busy to take your mind off this crazy world and everything it has to throw at us at the moment. When this virus buggers off our little cabins will be SO ready to welcome you all to stay.

But for now, please stay at home and please stay safe. Let’s beat this together!


New Flexible Bookings

We know that you may be feeling uncertain about making new travel plans right now, and we want to provide you with some flexibility to make planning a little easier.

Between now and April 30th (this may be extended at a later date), when you book with us directly, you’ll have the option to rebook your reservation if your plans change.

We also want to let you know that we are taking extra steps to protect the health & safety of our guests. We already clean our cabins to very strict standards, however we are also updating our cleaning protocols with guidance from the government.

This is not an easy time for anyone at the moment and we hope this goes some way to alleviate any concerns you may have about travelling. For now it is very much business as usual. As you know we are small family run business, in a beautiful rural coastal location where you can get some good fresh air and a break.

Please continue to come and see us!

Best wishes,

Melissa, Janet and John
