Glamping in Devon

Double GOLD award-winning Valleyside Escapes in Devon is a hidden glamping gem, located in the village of Bickleigh, close to nature but ideally positioned to explore the county. We are set in an amazing valley in the heart of the countryside. It’s a chance to spend some precious time with family and friends. The scenery is beautiful, we have pubs, the river Exe, lots of space and all sorts of nature on our doorstep, including peacocks, sheep and herons!

We were honoured as ‘Best Glamping site in the South West’ AND ‘Best Glamping site in Devon’ after receiving GOLD in the South West Tourism Excellence Awards and Devon Tourism awards 2023-24 in the Glamping Business of the Year category.

Situated in our top paddock overlooking the Exe valley we have three fully-equipped safari tents – Oak, Maple and Birch.

Each tent sleeps up to 6 and is furnished with:

  • King and twin bedroom with all bedding

  • Space for hanging your clothes including hangers
  • Throws and hot water bottles
  • Lounge Area
  • Kitchen containing hot running water, a small fridge-freezer and gas hob

If you are staying with very young children we can also provide a travel cot, high chair and step for bathroom. New for 2024 we also have an Out’n’About V5 off-road Nipper buggy which can be used free of charge to help you enjoy even more adventures in the beautiful Devon countryside.

OUTSIDE there is a veranda to watch the sun set and a BBQ area for creating some culinary delights and for the traditional custom of marshmallow toasting.  We also have a small honesty shop stocking essential items, snacks and breakfast goods.                      

We have a children’s play area on-site with a Mud kitchen, swing, slide, tree stumps and tyres to climb and balance on. Children can also take part in our complimentary nature trail. The adults are not forgotten either they can have some fun on the the skittles and boule court – but don’t get too competitive!

On Friday evenings our Mediterranean courtyard bar is open for drinks, it’s family-friendly with board games and colouring for children. New for 2024 is a games room situated in the courtyard and available to use during your stay. It has a pool table, darts board, table football and retro Nintendo – something for the whole family!

We offer paella meal kits supplying all the ingredients and pan for you to create a delicious Spanish meal and we even do the washing up!

If you would prefer to have a night off cooking you can stroll across Bickleigh Bridge to the Fisherman’s Cot pub, less than a five minute walk. Bickleigh Mill is even closer and is a great spot for lunch or to enjoy a traditional Devon cream tea. There are numerous other pubs serving great food a short drive away too.

If you need to stock up on fresh, local supplies Exe Valley farm shop is just 7 minutes drive. The historic market town of Tiverton which has three supermarkets, a number of independent and high street shops and even a department store, is only 10 minutes away.
