Reforge Retreat: Colourful bell tent

General

  • 20-acre Devon farm half a mile from a village with good food pub
  • 10 miles from the Dartmoor National Park and the coast
  • Picnic areas, and medieval clubhouse and courtyard

Do you feel like nature is lacking in your life? Rebuild that relationship with a stay at Reforge Retreat, on a 20-acre farm less than 15 minutes’ drive from Beaworthy in Devon, where you can pitch up among meadows, woods and lakes.

Reforge Retreat is a top spot for exploration of Devon: bring your bike and head out on the Ruby Way cycle path that passes near the site, or join up with the Tarka Trail which stretches from Meeth to Braunton. You can hike or take to horseback in Dartmoor National Park, 25 minutes away, and there are also plenty of quiet lanes and bridleways nearby where you can walk or bike in peace.

Relax back on site in the clubhouse or medieval courtyard, tucking into some snacks in one of the picnic areas, or hanging out by the firepits and gazing at the stars.

If your stomach starts complaining, you won’t have to travel far: barbecues are available for hire on site, so you can look after yourself, or if you’re feeling a little lazier – and who could blame you when you’re on your hols – there’s a pub in the village of Black Torrington, a 15-minute walk away, where you can grab some grub and knock back a few local ales and ciders.

Please note

    Very peaceful, beautiful place. Martha and Tony were extremely helpful and welcoming. Faith the owner also kept in touch for anything we required during our stay. The games room was excellent for relaxing in and having a cuppa as well as charging up phones. Enjoyed playing ping pong in there too.

    Such a relaxing, welcoming and beautiful site. The views were stunning and the people were lovely. It felt like the perfect balance of nearly wild camping, with the simplicity, space and peacefulness, whilst also offering common areas which were full of rustic elegance, curiosities, charm and great people. I can’t wait to go again to better explore the woods, lakes and the full range of on site accommodation. This site was the perfect find.

    Incredible place to stay. Totally off grid but beautiful lakes and meadows. There is a bar on site and a French style courtyard to sit and enjoy your drink.. the site is really child friendly so I could sit and enjoy the surroundings whilst the kids went off and did their own thing. BBQs and fire pits are allowed so added to the atmosphere of the evening. The owners of the site are really helpful and nothing is too much. Will definitely be heading back.

    Lovely, peaceful setting.
    Cosy cabin and showers were good.
    Friendly and relaxed owners.

    Disliked: 

    The bed was a bit uncomfortable for us.
    Was a little disappointed the bar was not open as this was one of the reasons we chose this place over others. However, in hindsight we should have checked this before we booked given we stayed mid-week! If this is important to you, check first. However there was a pub a 10 minute drive away.

    We have just come back from 2 nights in the Writer's Cabin and didnt want to leave. Absolutely idyllic, in a corner of the wood far away from everyone else. Little stream, canopy of trees for shelter, fairy lights, firepit/bbq, outdoor seating, everything you could need. Own compost toilet buy a flushing toilet, shower, fridge, freezer and kettle less than 5 minutes walk away on the main site. Lovely owner, very friendly. Already planning to return to this peaceful haven!

    Found the futon bed slightly hard the first night but slept like a dream the second night so I guess just different...

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

There are plenty of castles and stately piles nearby to make you feel like a Devon (or Cornish) landowner of the past: Lawrence House, Okehampton Castle, Castle Drogo, Cotehele and Buckland Abbey are all within an hour’s drive of Reforge Retreat.

More of a horticulturist than a historian? The gardens, orchards, arboreta and borders of RHS Garden Rosemoor are 25 minutes from the site… Garden trips don’t have to be stuffy grownup affairs either – the kids may not be drawn in by border gardens and arboreta, but poking around the Gnome Reserve and Wildflower Garden should keep them entertained.

Anglers will have plenty to keep them occupied close at hand too. Cast a line at the Legge Farm Coarse Fishery, less than 10 minutes from the site, or head to Tamar Lakes, 25 minutes away, for something to cook up on the barbecue later on.

If you’re in search of something less sedate, be prepared to get active with a trip to Bude, half an hour from Reforge, where you can go surfing, coasteering or paddleboarding, or simply take a stroll on the beach. At Tamar Lakes, try your hand at sailing and windsurfing.

Keep your adrenaline pumping in the Battlefield arena or on the rollercoaster at The Big Sheep theme park, then slow it down with safari rides or lakeside train rides without leaving the park.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (8.7 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (18.1 miles)
  • Tintagel Castle (27.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Finch Foundry (12.5 miles)
  • Lydford Gorge (12.6 miles)
