Pop-up bell tent glamping in south Devon with little luxuries like complimentary marshmallows and breakfast to your door

After the global pandemic is over, 2020 and 2021 might just become known as 'the years of the staycation'. And, with big weddings cancelled, festivals abandoned and large events postponed, there’s a wave of temporary glamping sites popping up instead, as businesses put their bell tents to good use and help us all find last-minute places to stay in summer.

Dreamfield Glamping, near the South Devon coast, though, has the feel of a place that was always meant to be. Yes, it’s a one-off and is only open for a few weeks in summer, but with hot gas-powered showers and with the beaches of South Devon within striking distance, it feels as though this is a ‘proper’ established glamping site that’s been thriving here for years. Indeed, it’s a shame it won’t be around further into the future. Here's hoping it will.

For this year, at least, they are setting up their 31 bell tents on an organic farm high on a Devonshire clifftop. The location and the layout affords each tent a safe sea view. You’re a couple of fields, a footpath and a number of fences away from the cliff edge but that can’t detract from the scene that awaits every morning when you unzip the tent to receive your campsite breakfast. This is glamping for glampers; beds are made, electricity provided and breakfast is served. Over at the bar; campfires are lit, films are screened and drinks are poured.

It’s not just the hospitality that makes this place dreamy, it’s also its south coast location. Aside from the view, the space, sights and sounds of the surrounding farm; there’s the beach. The closest is a mere ten-minute walk away on the South West Coast Path (which, by the way, runs close by the site) but, for a nicer spot, we’d suggest you go further. Three miles east is elegant Sidmouth and the same distance west is charming Budleigh Salterton; both a lovely walk if your legs are long enough and a very short drive if they’re not. Hire paddleboards, eat Devonshire ice cream and then make your way back to Dreamfields for a G&T at sunset. Campfires are lit, films are screened, drinks are poured and memories are made.

There are a choice of beaches within a few miles of site. The closest is Ladram Bay Beach, just a mile and a walk of about 15 minutes on the coast path away. It’s great for swimming and rockpooling and there are boats for hire too – but it can be busy as there’s a caravan park in prime position behind it.

After such a successful first year gathering rave reviews in rural Somerset, Dreamfields are excited to return for 2021 - bringing our luxurious glamping vibe to a beautiful spot on the South Devon Coast.

It is a haven for nature and an area of outstanding beauty and you will find fields of beautiful lupins, dozens of wild hares and peregrine falcons nesting in the cliffs.

Built with social distancing in mind, every aspect of our location has been developed to ensure you can holiday safely and securely this summerImagine spending the days breathing in the fresh air as you explore the Devon beaches, delve into the local rockpools or take an excursion on a boat to discover the shoreline.
