Our unique emperor bell tent provides a bedroom and living area complete with our utility 'potting shed' - home to everything you might possibly need for your glamping experience. Your private double bell tent and orchard has stunning views in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is based on a working farm serving delicious cream teas and pies.

The space
Our unique glamping site is situated close to the Jurassic coastline in an area of outstanding natural beauty in East Devon.

The double bell tent has it's own private outside area in a very natural and organic orchard with undoubtedly the best view there is on the farm of the rolling valley of Farway.

The private 'potting shed' has a gas BBQ, stove, microwave, tv and coffee, cutlery, china and a fridge - all intended to help you glamp in style or survive in the wild - whichever way you look at it! Access to showers and bathrooms is close by to the bell tent - but please note these are shared with other visitors to our small regular campsite.

We run a tea barn serving homemade pies, traditional country fare and what we've been told is one of the most exceptional cream teas in Devon. Our pies and pasties have made a name all by themselves so if cooking on a camping stove is too much, help is just a stone's throw away.

Bovey's Down Farm is an organic Aberdeen Angus Beef smallholding, so it is always a hive of activity and there are plenty of interesting things for children to see.

For groups or hen parties we can serve dinner under the stars in our Woodland Pavillion with views of the Farway Valley or in our barn restaurant. Activities like face painting or crafts can also be arranged on request.

It's our little glamping haven, so come and simply breathe in the country air or have a party around a camp fire with a few marshmallows - whatever tickles your fancy.

During your stay

We are always here to help and live on site. Our farm has grown from love and the people who visit us, so it's weird and wonderful and entirely imperfect but that's what makes it unique - we hope you love it as much as we do.
