Jurassic Glamping in East Devon is a new small luxury glamping site located on our smallholding with exceptional views over the Axe Valley. Enjoy a stay in one of our large safari-style tents, each equipped with all the luxuries you would expect as part of a true glamping experience. We are only 10 minutes from the Jurassic Coastline and ideally located for exploring the seaside towns, wonderful beaches and countryside of Devon. Axminster is just a mile away with plenty of shops and the pub is just a 25 minute walk down the hill!
Last year in collaboration with The Woodland Trust we planted 2,700 new native broad-leaf trees. This will join up two existing areas of woodland on either side of the farm and eventually create a much larger continuous habitat for the badgers, deer, foxes, rabbits, woodpeckers, owls, buzzards and countless other bird species which live in and around the site. The camping fields total around 10 acres so there’s lots of space to wander about and enjoy.
Our safari tents are large and airy with a huge veranda for relaxing and taking in the gorgeous sunsets while enjoying a pre-dinner drink. Each tent has an internal bathroom with hot shower and proper flushing toilet so there’ll also be no need for night time treks across a field to a shared toilet. A solar panel powers the lights and a phone charger and we supply a gas powered cooking stove, fridge and heater. In front of each safari tent is a spacious lawn and fire pit so everyone has their own space to spread out and relax.
We are child-friendly, you can bring your dog and cook on an open fire in the evening, or get together with a group of friends and enjoy exclusive use of the whole site.
