Combe Valley Hero 3

Combe Valley Glamping The South West


There’s a valley in Devon with wildflower meadows, crystal-clear streams and ancient beech woodlands. It falls away to the sea at Combe Martin, and at the very heart of it, sits Combe Valley Glamping - a holiday cottage and five luxury safari lodges, which you can book for your exclusive use.

The cottage sleeps four and the lodges each sleep up to six, making this a wonderful option for an extended family gathering of up to 34 people. You can come together in the Party Barn for celebration meals, games and dancing.

The cottage sits on top of a hill, with jaw-dropping views of the valley. Step inside to vaulted ceilings, granite worktops and a cosy log burner. The safari lodges take glamping to a new level, with log burners, wooden decking to soak up the views, and natural aromatherapy products in the shower room.

Your natural playground is 17 acres of unspoilt Devon landscape, shared only with one other holiday let. Go wild swimming in the lake, follow the woodland trails, and enjoy the views from the cedar, wood-fired hot tub (exclusively yours), which is bubble-free for complete peace. Keep the children occupied with football, the basketball hoop, giant chess or table tennis.

Visit Combe Martin Beach, or Woolacombe Beach, voted Britain’s best, and get back in time to watch golden sunsets from the terrace. Combe Valley Glamping is on the edge of Exmoor, within the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and under the first Dark Sky Reserve in Europe. If you yearn for a carefree, natural getaway with family or friends, without giving up your home comforts, this is for you.

What we think

We love this amazing retreat with its mix of luxury safari lodges and cosy cottage where you can immerse yourself in nature, yet not scrimp on creature comforts, drink in stunning views and gaze up at the stars in an unpolluted night sky… Bliss!
