Description of Orchard Organic Farm
We are a small, quiet, family friendly site offering affordable and flexible stays in South Devon, a great location for getting out and exploring.
The Hen’s Dens are our timber tent camping / glamping pods.
The Dens are our original chicken sheds built by us at the start of our organic laying hens enterprise, and which became redundant as we have expanded the business.
A few years ago we had a light bulb moment the thought ‘why don’t we turn them into Timber Tents’, and with the support of the planning authority, we set out on the task of converting them.
The Dens have been carefully set in a quiet spot amongst our cob nut trees and adjoining an orchard of organic desert apples trees.
After many months of hard work, hopefully you will agree, we have created an attractive and appealing, unique, small site to provide an enjoyable place to stay.
The intention from the outset was to provide:
– camping without the need for a tent.
– high quality spacious accommodation.
– flexible stay which you are able to tailor to suit your needs.
Hopefully you will take a minute and follow the links to our website to find out a little more about what makes us different and a great place to stay.

We are a small site with only three pods so the communal areas are close by and easy to share.
The Dens are unusual in that each has its own amenities with just a few shared areas and items.
What to bring?
