Owl Valley Glamping: A view of the bell tent

General

  • Small peaceful site on a private nature reserve in north Devon
  • Two miles from Bideford and within 10 minutes of award-winning beaches
  • Within easy reach of the Tarka Trail

Want to get away from the chaos of modern life without sacrificing too many of your creature comforts? At Owl Valley Glamping, a peaceful site less than two miles from the town of Bideford in north Devon, you get the best of both worlds: no internet, no electricity – just somewhere comfy to spend your break. What a hoot.

Owl Valley is paradise for walkers, nature spotters and sand fans: the site is a 10-minute drive from the beach at Westward Ho! and under an hour from the north Devon coast. The 32-mile traffic-free Tarka Trail for walkers and cyclists is within easy reach, passing through nearby Bideford, and there are plenty of walks along the South West Coast Path too.

Back on site, explore the private nature reserve that you’ll be calling home during your stay: wander through the woodlands, sit on the banks of the pond or stream and, at all times, keep your eyes peeled for wildflowers, butterflies, woodland birds and the occasional deer.

When it's time for dinner, fire up your barbecue or get that campfire going – you can pick up supplies and essentials in Bideford, or just skip cooking altogether and have a bite at one of the quayside town’s restaurants.

Don’t expect to be bingeing Netflix in the evenings – instead, kick back and turn your gaze to the stars, unwinding with the sounds of owls’ hooting and the stream running through the site playing in your ears.

Please note

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    Everything, wonderful cosy cabin, the wood fired hot tub was brilliant. We stayed for our anniversary and the hosts even put up a happy anniversary banner which was a really nice touch. No wifi, phone signal or electricity made it a wonderful peaceful stay where we could just be together and nature and enjoy the quiet.

    Amazing stay and amazing hosts!
    It was a magical experience and surprisingly welcoming for our 5 and 1 year old.
    Host ferried our luggage down to lodge and heated up the wood fired hot tub daily and discreetly.
    Great cabin for little one's to play magnet darts and to unwind in the hot tub when they'd gone to sleep and stare at the stars even when raining was magical!
    Thanks Owl Valley family!

    The simplicity of the cabin was fantastic. We were staying as my partners birthday and they laid on a bottle of Prosecco as well as hanging balloons and bunting. The hosts were fantastic and really helpful from carrying luggage to emptying and refilling the hot tub. The grounds in which the camp is set are fabulous, with a little stream running and various walks and seating areas to sit and chat or sit in peaceful tranquility.

    Incredible setting. Lovely, accommodating hosts who helped with our bags down to the dome when we arrived and had balloons and a birthday banner waiting. Wood fired hot tub in your own woodland clearing is amazing which Chris cleans each day. The dome was warm and very comfortable. So quiet and peaceful. Will definitely look to return soon and try out some of the other accommodation.

    The site itself was enough for a 5 star review - idillic location amongst the trees - but Chris made it a wonderful stay for us. Daily water changes in the wood fired hot tub, plenty of amenities, and incredibly helpful, friendly service. We stayed in the Barn Owl Cabin for 2 nights, it was very clean and comfortable - honestly couldn't fault it, can't wait to return.

Local attractions

If you haven’t had enough of walking from your excursions on the South West Coast Path and Tarka Trail, never fear: Owl Valley is 40 minutes’ drive from Exmoor National Park, where there are plenty of trails and long-distance routes. There’s also canoeing, sea kayaking, fishing, horse riding and mountain biking to get stuck into, and the less active can pay a visit to Dunster Castle, take a trip on the Lynton and Lynmouth Cliff Railway funicular or the West Somerset Railway steam train, or bring the kids to Exmoor Zoo or Watermouth Castle Theme Park.

For those who like living at least part of their life on the water, there’s loads to do close to Owl Valley. Have a go at kayaking, body boarding, surfing and rafting in Westward Ho!, or climb aboard a boat in Ilfracombe to spy out dolphins, seals and porpoises on sea safari.

A visit to Clovelly is a must – the stunning seaside village, 20 minutes from Owl Valley, has oodles of character. It’s also entirely traffic free, so you can wander the cobbled streets sharing the roads with donkeys and human-powered sledges, and looking out over Bideford bay.

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (5.8 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (28.0 miles)

National Trust
