Aurora

Wild Stays & Unique Escapes on Dartmoor

Tucked away on the 700 acre National Trust Buckland Abbey Estate, on the fringes of Dartmoor, our cabins offer wild stays and unique escapes surrounded by nature with room to breathe.

Off the beaten track our sumptuous Hideaways are for those seeking spoiling secluded celebrations, romantic escapes, indulgent time and space just for you, away from the busy demands of life.

 A secluded space to slow down, for reconnection, immersed in nature, surrounded by stillness, birdsong and the wind in the trees on the fringes of Dartmoor. Where every detail of your unique escape nudges you to relax, take time out and enjoy every moment of your wild stay. To breathe in the rolling views down the valley, the 800 year old Abbey, Great Barn, Monastic Kitchen Gardens and beyond to the river and out to sea.

Surrounded by beech trees positioned for its name “Aurora” where dawn’s first rays touch the hillside…

A textured pallet of pale blues and golds accentuate the light and open aspect of Aurora’s panoramic hilltop position.
