The Owner Says

Exe Valley Glamping is the perfect place to reconnect with nature, set within 150 acres of our family farm. Each of our tents are purposely built to make your glamping getaway fuss free and easy so you can relax and unwind from everyday stresses.
Our eco-conscious lodges use solar energy and wood collected through woodland management to heat and provide maximum comfort without relinquishing the benefits or adventure of outdoor living.
The tents have 3 bedrooms, one with a king bed and the other with twin beds (which can be pushed together on request), each with their own access to a shower and toilet, the final room is the whimsical cabin bedroom featuring its own canopy, double mattress and hatched doors, it also doubles up as the perfect children's den. We provide soft bed linen, plump pillows & cozy duvets for all bedrooms.
The tents are equipped with a woodburning stove, gas burner, fire pit & a small refrigerator, we also provide you with cutlery, glassware, cooking equipment (e.g pots, pans..) tea, sugar logs, kindling & firelighters (please ask if you require anymore).
Pre-order from our larder menu and we'll ensure your glamp kitchen is stocked ready for your arrival!
Please note car access across the land is no longer available, you need to park in Bickleigh Village which is a 5-8 min walk to your tent, we can take your luggage in the Land Rover across the land.

Features & Facilities

Each lodge has three bedrooms; a double with a king-sized bed, a twin room (which can be converted into a superking) and a cabin bedroom with a double mattress that’s perfect for kids. Bedding, bed linen and towels are all provided. Each tent has its own toilet and shower room. Hot water is warmed by a wood-burning stove that you’ll need to light yourself. The kitchen-living-dining area of the tent is furnished with a sofa, a dining table and seating. There’s a log-burning oven, a fridge, kettle and sink as well as cookware, enamelware crockery, glasses, utensils and cutlery. Outside, there’s a gas hob, and seating on the veranda and each tent has an off-ground fire bowl. Firewood for this, and the wood-burning stoves inside, are supplied and sustainably sourced from within the farm. Power in the tents comes from solar energy.

Activities

You park your car by Bickleigh Mill (01884 855 419) - a rural shopping centre and tearoom/bistro within a working watermill that’s worth a visit. From here you can join a footpath along the banks of the River Exe for picnicking and wild swimming - or to walk the three miles to Tiverton. The village is also home to the Devon Railway Museum (01884 855671), and Bickleigh Castle gardens (01884 855363) which you can tour if booked in advance. There’s plenty for active families to do, including walking, cycling, horseriding and the Dartmoor-specific sport of letterboxing with both Dartmoor National Park and Exmoor National Parks within a 20-mile drive of site. There’s also the Bear Trail (01392 881780), a family adventure-assault course, 10 miles away. From Exeter quayside, 12 miles away, you can hire bikes or paddleboards from Saddles and Paddles (01392 424241). For beaches, you can choose either of Devon’s coastlines. Saunton Sands is about an hours’ drive (42 miles) north of site. It’s one of North Devon’s best-loved surf beaches with three miles of golden sands. You can book surf lessons for the whole family with Surf Saunton (07837 906428). Budleigh Salterton is a closer, shingle beach (22 miles, approx 45-min drive) on East Devon’s Jurassic Coast.

Food & Drink

You can get the fridge and cupboards within your lodge stocked before you even arrive by pre-ordering (at least two weeks before arrival) from the Larder Menu at Exe Valley Glamping. For supplies whilst in situ, the closest farm shop is Exe Valley Farm Shop (01392 861239) a 10-minute drive away and there are plenty of shops and a couple of supermarkets in Tiverton. The town also has a farmers’ market on the fourth Friday of the month. For eating out you can’t get closer than The Fisherman’s Cot (01884 855237) and the tearoom/bistro at Bickleigh Mill (01884 855419 - open for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea every day and for dinners on Fridays and Saturdays only). Both are just at the end of the woodland walk in Bickleigh. A little further away is the family-friendly Cadleigh Arms (01884 855238) and for a smart dinner, The Ring of Bells (01363 860111) is a recommended pub just over five miles from site at Cheriton Fitzpaine. To combine eating out with a little adventure try The Turf, a bike ride away from Exeter Quay or the River Exe Café (07761 116103) at Exmouth – reached by water taxi.

Getting There

Exe Valley Glamping is around 10 miles from the M5 at Junction 27, between Tiverton and Exeter. You won't find the exact location on Google maps and there is no direct car car access. Instead, park in Bickleigh Village, where Patrick will meet you and transfer your luggage to his Land Rover while you walk for five to eight minutes through the woods to your tent.

There are mainline railway stations at Exeter and Tiverton Parkway, both around 11 miles from site. Taxis are available from both stations and buses stop at Bickleigh on the Exeter to Tiverton bus route. Tiverton Parkway Railway Station is outside the town and reaching Bickleigh requires a change of bus in Tiverton town centre.
