Inside Our Unique Stargazing Cabin


Perseus’ sumptuous king size bed with huge bed-to-ceiling picture window makes the most of every opportunity to catch sight of a shooting star, and observe the wonderful wildlife and rural views from the comfort of your bed.

Living Space

The well-equipped kitchenette has a gas hob, hot running water, a fridge and all the utensils you need.

The living-eating space has a comfortable seating area and a table and chairs for two, positioned to take in the view from the French windows which open out on to a large grass area and spacious private deck.

The wood burning stove will keep you toasty in the cooler months and on chilly summer nights. We provide a large basket of logs, kindling and fire lighters for your stay. We have additional logs and kindling available to purchase if you require more.


The en-suite shower room is fitted with a large walk-in shower and vanity unit with a sink. A luxury compost loo in the shower room means there’s no need to step outside.

Outside Our Unique Cabin With Outdoor Bath

On the deck and grass area you’ll find everything you need for alfresco cooking and dining, along with seating to relax and watch the stars or take in the view in your own little haven.

The deck also boasts a modern roll top bath with hot running water so that you can enjoy a luxurious soak surrounded by nature and beneath the stars.

Wood-Fired hot tub to relax and unwind after a long day exploring the Jurassic Coast.

Binoculars, stargazing monocular and star maps are provided and the cabin has plenty of cosy, warm blankets to keep you warm after dark.

Deer, pheasants and birds of prey can often be spotted on the farm amongst the native trees, wild flowers and swaying grass. Fantastic bird watching site.


The lighting and fridge are powered entirely from solar energy, with LPG gas for cooking and hot water, making your experience ‘off-grid’.

The site has good 4G coverage but Wifi is not available in the cabin. We invite guests to make the most of being able to switch off and unwind away from the bustle of daily life. The cabins have a usb charging point for recharging phones.


Royal Oak Farm is the perfect location for exploring Devon further: 20 minutes from the Jurassic Coast (World Heritage Site); 10 minutes from Honiton; 20 minutes from Lyme Regis and 30 minutes from Exeter. 

Please note:

the cabins are for adults only;

because we have livestock and grow food products, we unfortunately cannot allow dogs on site.
