The Lazy Mare - Glamping with a View!

Adults-only cabin in Ilfracombe
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.

Tucked away next to our converted barn, The Lazy Mare boats stunning views towards Exmoor and across the Bristol Channel towards Wales. It 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. 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.

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 radio, board games, magazines and log burner with logs, kindling etc. At the far end is a beautiful snug-style bedroom with king bed.
The kitchen area in between includes electric oven, gas hob and a small fridge with freezer compartment. The small en suite has a powerful mains shower and wash basin. 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 and bench table for dining.
This cosy accomodation is delightful in the summer surrounded by birdsong. Additional electric heating is provided to keep you warm until the fire gets going.

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.

Brilliant trip away
My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great but that did not spoil our trip. The horse box was snug and warm and the facilities fantastic. Location was also ideal, we were never far from numerous coastal walks. Bex and Steve were even willing to come collect us if we didn’t fancy walking back! The graze box was absolutely amazing, and very much recommended! We hope to come again when the weathers a bit better :) Harriet and Chris

Love this place, proper retreat
Once you make it down the track you discover a quiet haven. The welcome is friendly and you have everything you need. The accommodation is clean, tidy and well organised to make sure you have everything you need. It’s a quick pop out to your private toilet. The shower in the van is warm and powerful. It really is quiet and lovely.
