The Daymer

The Daymer chalet pictured above was designed to blend in with the rugged landscape of Dartmoor, whilst meeting all planning and residential building regulations as imposed in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The spacious interior provides versatile living accommodation and the wide balcony with overhanging roof is akin to having another room whilst truly allowing for outdoor living.

At 6m x 9m and incorporating a 2.7m veranda, this cabin has a lounge/kitchen, separate bedroom and bathroom.  Above these rooms is a 2.7m deep mezzanine floor, allowing for extra sleeping space.

Fully insulated and with double glazed doors and windows, this chalet is the ideal home from home fulfilling all the needs of a weekend retreat or a holiday home.
