Description of Valleyside Escapes
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.
Situated in our top paddock overlooking the Exe Valley we have three 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 and one dog 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.
The best spot is probably a drink on the veranda overlooking the picturesque Exe Valley.
For children there is a small play area and box of garden games to really make the most of being outdoors.
There is a pub and bistro 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, Diggerland and a number of local breweries.
Within an hour you can also reach both national parks and award-winning sandy beaches.
** Please note: the tents are being installed in July and are the same as those in the picture but slightly elevated off the ground. The veranda is enclosed and there will be stairs at the side with a gate at to the top.
