Luxury glamping with panoramic valley views located in the historic village of Bickleigh-on-Exe, in the heart of Devon.
Award-winning Valleyside Escapes is a hidden gem, located in the village of Bickleigh-on-Exe, close to nature but ideally positioned to explore north and south Devon.
Our permanent residents include sheep and chickens but you will see all sorts of nature while staying with us.
Situated in our top paddock overlooking the Exe Valley we have three fully-equipped luxury safari tents. Each tent has hot running water, electricity and Wi-Fi connectivity.
They sleep up to six and one large dog or two small dogs. There are two bedrooms – one king, one twin plus a king-sized cabin bed which accommodates two children or adults! Each tent has a bathroom at the rear containing a shower, toilet and sink.
There is a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need from pans to a cafetiere, a fridge freezer and gas hob. As night time falls you can get cosy next to the wood burning stove and play games, read a book or just chill out in the lounge area.
Outside there is a BBQ area for creating some culinary delights and the traditional custom of marshmallow toasting. We provide paella meal kits, perfect for an alternative to a BBQ or for groups hiring all three tents.
For children there is a play area with bespoke mud kitchen, skittles and boule court which adults can also join in and a games locker.
The best spot is probably a drink on the veranda overlooking the picturesque Exe Valley and you can even see a vineyard.
Our private riverside meadow is just a couple of minutes walk and has a picnic area, it's a great spot for fishing and wild swimming.
There is a pub on the river and bistro within a few minutes walk and other country pubs a short drive.
There are many local attractions – next door is the Devon Railway Centre, Bickleigh Mill and access to the Exe Valley Way walk. A short drive takes you to two national Trust properties - Knightshayes and Killerton, the Bear Trail, Diggerland and the Grand Western Canal.
Within an hour you can also reach Dartmoor and Exmoor national parks and award-winning sandy beaches on both coasts.
