The Lazy Mare is part of Shack & Pantry, North Devon Retreat. The accommodation is a beautifully converted horse truck in a secluded hamlet with breathtaking views.
Inside you will find king bed, woollen throws, a log burner + electric heating, towels, board games, magazines, tea & coffee plus all the essentials you need for your stay.
By day you can relax in deckchairs and soak in the views. By night, snuggle up by the fire pit, stargaze and toast marshmallows amidst the festoon-lit garden.

The space
Tucked away next to our converted barn, The Lazy Mare boats stunning views towards Exmoor and across the Bristol Channel towards Wales. Full of character and charm, The Lazy Mare was transformed to a high standard and crafted with a lot of love which is evident from some of it’s unique design features.
The location is private and secluded, set within its own large gated paddock with landscaped garden area. It’s the perfect base for walkers, cyclists, surfers or anyone wanting to explore North Devon. You really get a sense of escaping everyday life, being away from it all yet within easy reach of stunning beaches, coastal walks and quaint villages. A number of cycle routes and scenic walks are accessible direct from The Lazy Mare, meaning those looking to retreat don’t need to venture too far to experience the great outdoors.

Being part of Shack & Pantry means that you can choose to dine in from a delicious menu with minimal effort… from wholesome evening meals and West Country grazing boards to breakfast bowls, waffles and fresh juices & smoothies. For an exclusive experience you can also book a hidden woodland cream tea or an outdoor film night with loaded nachos.
Our full menu can be viewed on our website Shack and Pantry .co .uk alternatively drop us a message and we can send you further details.

Entered via it’s own gated garden, you access the Lazy Mare up a small staircase leading you to the balcony where you can make the most of the views. Inside is a lounge area with comfy armchairs, Bluetooth Roberts Radio, board games, magazines and log burner with enough logs and kindling for your stay. At the far end is a beautiful snug-style bedroom with king bed.
The kitchen area includes electric oven, gas hob, a small fridge with freezer compartment plus all your glamping essentials. For your arrival we also include luxury marshmallows for toasting and local tea & coffee.
The small en suite has a power shower, wash basin and heated towel rail. External access is provided to a private toilet within the main house just 20 steps away.
Both doors from the lounge open to the balcony where you can enjoy al fresco dining or simply bring the outside in whilst enjoying creature comforts. Outside you will find a private, festoon-lit landscaped garden area with fire pit and charcoal BBQ. There are also deckchairs to laze in and watch the clouds go by.
This cosy accomodation is delightful in the summer surrounded by birdsong though also great for a winter getaway, playing board games by the fire with a glass of wine. Additional electric heating is provided to keep you warm until the fire gets going.

Where you’ll be

Berrynarbor, Ilfracombe, United Kingdom

Located at the top of the Sterridge Valley, you approach the Lazy Mare down a long private track between the farmers fields where pheasants, rabbits and deer are often seen. Our home is a converted barn that once formed part of the animal dwellings of Woolscott farm. The secluded rural location is shared with one other family next door at the original farm house and the older barns opposite which are undergoing transformation by the owners. Views from the truck at the rear of the barn are uninterrupted with some amazing sunrises throughout the year and spectacular scenes on a clear day.

Hi there, In 2018 we were fortunate to swap city life and long commutes for wetsuits and wellies. We bought the barn after falling in love with the secluded area and breathtaking views with the plan to share our stunning location with others. We rent the barn on limited dates during the year as well as our full-time glamping accommodation, The Lazy Mare. I love good food, have passion for interiors and a big heart for hosting. We are on hand should you need anything to help make your stay as relaxed as possible. If you’re celebrating a special occasion or after some recommendations I’m happy to help. Bex
