The Elvan Experience


Are you looking to escape the busy bustle of everyday life, to relax and enjoy time to yourself, to make new memories?

Maybe we can help.

We feel incredibly lucky to live where we do and would love to share this with you.


We live on a traditional, working hill farm, set within the beautiful, rolling hills of Dartmoor. The farm runs sheep, cattle & ponies.

Throughout the farming calendar, the farm comes to life with Spring new arrivals, shearing, cattle gathering and Summer harvest.

Relax and recharge in our luxurious hut, whilst taking in the beautiful views, the farm has to offer. From morning until dusk, there is so much to see. Enjoy the tranquillity of the farm slowly waking up, the birds singing, the cows lazing in the meadows, the sheep meandering on the common. Whilst, on glorious evenings, take time out, to enjoy the beautiful sunset over Cawsand Beacon.

On more chilly days, cosy up by the roaring wood burner, with a good read or simply enjoy the peace and quiet.


Step out the gate, straight onto the welcoming Moor. With so much to see and discover, you can explore until your hearts content.

Dartmoor has so much to offer to everyone. Perfect for walkers wishing to hike the craggy hills, through flowering flora and fauna, to reach some of the highest Tors. Once there, explore their granite features, or simply sit and take in the breath-taking views. You may wish to explore old ruins, archaeology and learn about local myths and legends or indulge yourself in a spot of wild swimming.

Once you have embraced all that Dartmoor has to offer, then retreat to the cosiness of your hut, where a wonderfully, comfortable bed, en-suite bathroom and all your home comforts, await you.
