Emma & Matt Wright
Award-winning Valleyside Escapes is a hidden gem, located in the village of Bickleigh-on-Exe, close to nature but ideally positioned to explore north and south Devon. Situated in our top paddock overlooking the beautiful Exe Valley we have three fully-equipped luxury safari tents – Oak, Maple and Birch. Each tent has hot running water, electricity and Wi-Fi connectivity. They sleep up to six with two bedrooms – one king, one twin plus a cabin bed which accommodates two children or adults! Each tent has a bathroom at the rear containing a shower, toilet and sink. There is also a fully equipped kitchen with fridge freezer, gas hob and wood burning stove so you can get cosy as night time falls. Next to this is a lounge area to play games, read a book or just chill out. Outside there is a BBQ area for creating some culinary delights and for the traditional custom of marshmallow toasting. The best spot is probably a drink on the veranda overlooking the picturesque Exe Valley – you can even see a vineyard! For children there is a play area including a bespoke mud kitchen and a box of garden games to make the most of being outdoors. For adults there is a boule court.
We moved to Devon in 2017 to escape to the country for a slower pace of life, freedom to steer our own destiny and spend most days like we’re on holiday. We absolutely love living in Devon – the people are friendly, the scenery is beautiful, we have pubs, the river Exe, lots of space and all sorts of nature on our doorstep… including some award winning sheep! We're really pleased to be able to share our hidden gem with our glamping guests and you can expect a warm welcome from us, the sheep, cat and chickens!
There is the Fisherman’s Cot pub on the river and Bickleigh Mill within a 5 minute walk and other restaurants and pubs a short drive away. There are many local attractions – next door is the Devon Railway Centre, and a short drive takes you to two national Trust properties, the Bear Trail, Diggerland, Crealy Adventure Park and a number of local breweries. Within an hour you can also reach both national parks and award-winning sandy beaches. There is so much to see and do in Devon you will have to return!
