Luxury safari tents and unique cabins with hot tubs on a family-run farm located between the sea and Dartmoor in South Hams, Devon.
On the site of our family farm in the heart of the South Hams, with Gold awards from Visit England and Green Tourism. Offering a luxury Glamping experience, in beautiful surroundings.
Make the most of Devon’s coast and countryside at this beautifully styled farm retreat – just a short drive from Totnes and Dartmoor National Park. Overall the farm can sleep up to 30 guests in 4 luxury Safari Tents (sleeping 6), a Cabin for 4 and a secluded Tabernacle for 2 overlooking rolling hills and fields. Dogs are welcome in the Cabin and two of the Tents.
All accommodation fits the definition of modern-day luxury glamping, boasting rooms that are stylishly furnished with vintage dressers and sumptuous fabrics, wood burning stoves, ensuites and well-equipped kitchens makes it seriously homely with a fridge, hot running water, electric hob and wood-fired range cooker. The thick mattresses and ultra-soft bedding ensure a great nights sleep.
Facilities include private hot tub hire outside your accommodation, a small onsite shop, where you can stock up on essential items and order some great meals full of delicious local produce including your breakfast (traditional English, veggie or continental). Alongside it is the Brownscombe Lodge, where you can enjoy private dining and the Pizza barn that offers communal pizza nights once a week in the school holidays.
For the family, there’s a children's play area with rope swings and a games room with pool, table tennis, games and DVDs – or maybe they would rather get out on the farm and see the sheep, pigs, ducks and chickens and join in with the morning farmers rounds.
For groups you can book activities like yoga, aqua aerobics, spa treatments and various workshops.
The coast around this area offers some of England’s finest beaches, with surfing, kayaking and paddle-boarding amongst the water-sports you could try.
Elsewhere, the county is full of family-friendly attractions like Paignton Zoo and Pennywell Farm, as well as more fine places to eat – from Michelin Star to rustic pub. The nearest, The Bickley Mill, is within walking distance of Brownscombe and comes highly recommended.
You can order food for breakfast or supper to eat in your own accommodation or use our private hire Lodge to cook steak on hot rocks and enjoy a chocolate fondue and once a week the whole site gets together for pizza nights from the wood fired oven in our Barn. The on-site honesty shop sells everything from local ice-cream, jam, charcoal, snacks and drinks to some of the homewares that you will find in our tent from Nkuku, Garden Trading and Yuyu. Free Wifi is available in our Barn and shop.
We have an on-site Wellness room equipped with yoga mats, free weights and resistance bands. A full range of massages and beauty treatments can be booked for individuals, couples and Groups.
