Leafy Fields is a small family run glamping site next to a working dairy farm in the quiet village of Ashill near The Blackdown Hills in Devon. We offer spacious safari lodges and a shepherds hut all nestled on the gentle slope of our 2 acre field full of buttercups and wildlife.
We can provide breakfast hampers of local produce plus some essential little extras to make your stay more enjoyable. There’s nothing better than a campfire and for a small charge we can provide a fire pit, fire wood and kindling.
On our site we also have a dedicated children play area and garden. Within the stable block you will find a cosy family room with sofas, local and nature information, a laundry area with coin operated washing machine and tumble dryer and we also a bookable sensory room.
Also living on site are four miniature horses and some young cats.
We have 2 large safari lodges (Fox and Badger) which can sleep up to 6 with internal kitchen and shower room. We also have 4 Bell tents which can sleep up to 4 and have a shower room in the nearby converted stable block
