An award-winning family-run glampsite beautifully set amongst some of the most glorious countryside in Mid Devon.
The Orchard Retreat is an award winning family-run glamping site set amongst some of the most glorious countryside in Devon.
We offer three locally handcrafted yurts (each sleeping up to 4 guests) nestled in our four acre apple orchard. The yurts are all within a short stroll of their own private bathroom & further kitchen facilities.
Each yurt has everything you need from a gas hob with pots & pans to candles and fairy lights, hot water bottles & cool box, as well as really comfy beds and a wood burning stove.
Outside there is your own seating area with Weber charcoal BBQ.
The communal kitchen houses additional cooking facilities, pots & pans etc, as well as two fridges and a freezer.
Also there is The Gallery a communal space for glamping guests, with Wi-Fi, games, books, a laundry room & loo.
Guests are free to explore our 15 acres of meadows, woodland, streams and orchard.
We have a unique outdoor bathroom with two traditional cast iron baths & a shower with hot water straight from the tap!
We also have a cob pizza oven, communal fire pit, children’s play area & micro shop offering a range of alcohol & a few other local delights.
We have a masseuse who can come to site and give you a massage from the comfort of your yurt, as well as two amazing yoga teachers who offer one to one, couples or group yoga in The Gallery or lawn.
We are dog friendly & ideal for families, friends, couples or groups, who want to relax and unwind in utter luxury.
Drive up the drive to the courtyard where you will find ample parking, we will come out to greet you and orientate you around the site. The shop is used as our reception area and we will show you in there first and get your keys. There is WiFi in the shop and The Gallery, a large communal space for guests to use, with sofas, games, books etc. You will then see the treehouse, with swings and a slide and our badminton area outside the private loos and communal kitchen.
