Solar-powered Out of the Valley cabin is a perfect off-grid retreat for two

City dwellers yearning for a modern eco-friendly escape in the country will love the Out of the Valley cabin , a solar-powered rentable abode, where high craftsmanship is king. Designed with a minimalist aesthetic, the secluded cabin offers off-the-grid luxury living in England’s forested Teign Valley on the norther edge of Dartmoor. Designed and built by Rupert McKelvie, the charred timber-clad cabin is the first prototype for Out of the Valley, a Devon-based workshop dedicated to off-grid and sustainable cabin design and construction.
