Is a privately owned Equestrian Center which includes stabling and the owners' house. The first owner who commissioned the build had spent some years abroad which probably influenced its Colonial style. The safari tents, therefore, make a rather fitting contemporary tribute.
Children are welcome - they love playing around the tents and exploring the surrounding natural area. There are however two small streams (one runs behind the tents) and a pond nearby and supervisions around these are recommended for smaller children.
This is one of only two quality safari tents at this site the other, 'Willow' is about 5 meters away. They can be booked together for a larger group. Also available is Bramble Shepherd's Hut on the site, with private facilities.
Devon has many interesting attractions and natural sites. The coast is 20 minutes away with Jurassic geology. Check out independent eateries such as the 'The Pea Green Boat cafe' on the Sidmouth waterfront serving good quality food and wines. Overall this is a great spot to go glamping in Devon!
