Ruby Rose is the perfect place to get away from it all. The lovingly converted horse lorry sits in its own private, 1/2-acre field on a 12-acre smallholding just outside Totnes. Two raised decking areas provide wonderful views across the valley. You have sole use of the fully fenced field - perfect for ball games and exercising dogs - and there's even a pen with hens so you can collect eggs for breakfast (subject to nature's productivity!)

Private facilities

  • BBQ
  • Kitchen - Inside
  • Picnic Tables
  • Showers
  • Toilets

Under the trees in the Ruby Rose field, there's a barbecue area, with a big table and rustic benches so you can enjoy al fresco dining. The smallholding is called Tigley Tump and has hens, alpacas, two donkeys (Mary and Ethel), a large vegetable garden and beehives, producing eggs, fruit and veg and honey for the three permanent eco-homes on site.

Eco features

  • Compost Loos
  • Conservation
  • Natural Spring
  • Off-Grid
  • Recycling
  • Solar Power
  • Sustainability
  • Upcycling

Sustainable living is a big part of life on the smallholding and Ruby Rose, like the three permanent homes here, is completely off-grid, with solar panels, modern compost loo and chemical-free, borehole-fed water supply. Many of the materials used in the conversion of Ruby Rose came from recycled sources. No chemicals are ever used on the land and areas are left uncultivated to encourage flora and fauna.

What To Bring

  • Bikes
  • First Aid Kit
  • Food & Drink
  • Rainwear
  • Slippers
  • Torches
  • Warm Clothing
  • Wellies

Because Ruby Rose is off-grid, supplies of power and water are not unlimited - we ask, therefore, that you don't bring a hair dryer (we provide a low-energy hairdryer) or iron. All bedding and linen is provided but if you have a dog, we suggest you bring old towels for a post-walk wipe down!
