Valleyside Escapes

Situated in our top paddock overlooking the beautiful Exe Valley we have three, gold award-winning, fully-equipped luxury safari tents – Oak, Maple and Birch.
Each tent has hot running water, electricity and Wi-Fi connectivity.
They sleep up to six with two bedrooms – one king, one twin plus a cabin bed which accommodates two children or adults!
Each tent has a bathroom at the rear containing a shower, toilet and sink. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, gas hob and wood burning stove so you can get cosy as night time falls.
Next to this is a lounge area to play games, read a book or just chill out.
Outside there is a BBQ area for creating some culinary delights and for the traditional custom of marshmallow toasting.  We can also provide paella meal kits, perfect for an alternative to a BBQ or for groups hiring all three tents.
The best spot is probably a drink on the veranda overlooking the picturesque Exe Valley – you can even see a vineyard!
For children there is a small play area with bespoke mud kitchen, a complimentary nature trail and a games locker shop. Adults also have the chance to get competitive on the boule court.
Our other facilities on-site include an honesty shop (stocking local coffee, snacks and breakfast goods including eggs from our chickens), a Mediterranean-style courtyard bar (open Fridays and available to purchase alcohol from at other times), a riverside meadow where you can go wild swimming, fishing or enjoy a picnic and new for 2024 is a games room adjacent to out courtyard bar.
We welcome dogs, either one large or two small per tent, and we also provide dog bowls sand treats.
There is the Fisherman’s Cot pub on the river and Bickleigh Mill within a 5 minute walk and other restaurants and pubs a short drive away.
There are many local attractions – next door is the Devon Railway Centre, and a short drive takes you to two national Trust properties, the Bear Trail & Bear Town, Diggerland, Crealy Adventure Park and a number of local breweries.
Within an hour you can also reach both national parks and award-winning sandy beaches.

This website is part of a collaborative project to keep more money in the local economy by providing free publicity to small businesses that provide glamping accommodation in Devon.  The idea came to us when we were promoting our little cabin in the woods.
