A Place To Pause

The Sleepy Owl retreats are handcrafted with you and your loved ones in mind and are the perfect place for couples to luxuriate in each other's company. Relax and unwind in one of our tranquil, country escapes away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Dog Loving

We love your furry friends almost as much as you do. That’s why we’ve kitted out Sleepy Owl with a few little extra treats just for them. Let them explore the winding river and wide open fields before relaxing at the doggy spa and curling up in a cosy doggy bed. Each retreat can welcome up to two well behaved pooches.

Nest Treehouse - a Luxury Treehouse with Private Terrace, Hot Tub and wood burning stove

The Site

Sleepy Owl Devon is a small boutique collection of exquisite stays tucked away in a secret hidden valley just below the breath-taking Hartland Peninsula in North Devon.

Nestled in a 20-acres of private land, Sleepy Owl retreats boast an unrivalled backdrop. Take a stroll through the wildflower meadow, along the twisting river, and through the
woods, right on the doorstep of your retreat.

Dark skies - enjoy evenings curled up on the terrace or in your hot tub watching the stars - the view is quite spectacular. Sleepy Owl is situated in a dark skies area so you can admire the milky way and a telescope is provided in each retreat.

Supporting Local

We always look to buy local and support independent businesses and trades as much as possible.

Our retreats showcase local craftsmanship, produce and design. We took the time to source and support local and we are proud and thankful to every person and business that helped us along the way.

Lovingly sourced and crafted to promote the natural beauty of Sleepy Owl and the surrounding area; each of our retreats is a delicate balance of opulence and nature...


From conception to completion, sustainability is at the heart of our designs. From the very beginning, anything we created we wanted to be in harmony with the environment around us.

We are honoured  to achieve a Muddy Stiletto for the best Boutique Stay in Britain, alongside our Green Tourism Gold award, and Land Owner of the Year Award from The Bumblebee Conservation Trust. We’re also really proud of our Biosphere Business Partner status, showcasing our long-term commitments to ecology and biodiversity and to raising awareness of the UNESCO Biosphere and its aims.

We had a really relaxing weekend and plenty of fun even though the weather wasn't great. The weather really didn't matter. The Cosy Cowshed was a perfect place to return to having visited dramatic autumnal seas and beaches. A warm welcome greets you in a spotless, stylish, well designed and well resourced home from home.

Gemma - Cost Cowshed
What a stunning place to stay, the photos actually don't do the treehouse justice. So luxurious and the owners went out of their way to spoil us. A real gem of a find in a gorgeous setting. Easy walking distance to the village pubs and restaurants.
Ferne - Hideout Treehouse
The outdoor tub was so inviting at the end of a long day. It was hard to decide where we wanted to wind down - there or the huge deep sofa in front of the wood burner! It's clear the owners have really thought about the finishing touches.
