Travellers Rest: Aeveen

General

  • Dog-friendly glamping in south Devon woodland, surrounded by a lake
  • Each unit is in its own private glade with lake views and a firepit
  • Breakfast, picnic and barbecue packs (including vegetarian) to buy

Hide among the trees at Travellers Rest, a south Devon glamping site set up for peaceful adults-only stays in a woodland surrounded by a lake. This place is also on a farm, so while mini humans won’t be around, you might very well come across small creatures like lambs and micro pigs instead...

Meet the animals then shack up in your smart accommodation: the thoughtfully designed gypsy caravans at this site each have their own private glade with a firepit as well as lush views of the lake and surrounding countryside. The units are fully kitted out, with memory foam-topped beds, towels and bed linen provided, as well as lights and charging points.

Bringing the dogs? Well-behaved dogs are welcome as well (two per caravan max, please), so much so that bowls and bedding are provided so your canine can eat and sleep in style (please just ensure that dogs are kept under control at all times, so that the park's wildlife isn't disturbed).

And once they're fed, watered and thoroughly rested? Four-legged friends are sure to appreciate setting off on walks around this Dawlish setting, either along the coast or the banks of the River Exe nearby. By car, Traveller's Rest is close to the A38 for ease of getting about... perhaps to another place for walkies...

Sorting supper’s just as much of a doddle: the park’s owners strive to make everything as breezy as possible for guests, including sourcing food and snacks. Each caravan is stocked with tea, coffee and fresh milk for your arrival and breakfast, picnic and barbecue packs (including for vegetarians) are available to buy. Since you’re in Devon, it’s also well worth splashing out on one of the traditional cream teas...

Communal amenities are swish at this park too: they include a bathroom block with two self-contained rooms, with an eco-friendly compost toilet and a luxury shower in each.

    A beautiful, peaceful & well managed campsite. With just 3 “glamping” Shepherd’s Huts on the working farm - with excellent facilities, you can immerse yourself in the South Devon countryside & really relax and unwind.

    The towns of Dawlish & Teignmouth are just a short drive away. There is also an excellent Sainsbury’s store about 2 miles distant (on the road to Dawlish).

    Dilyn & Suzanne are brilliant hosts & go out of their way to make guests feel really welcome.

    A real find!

    Peaceful, quiet, clean, and comfortable pod, equipped with kitchen supplies and power point. Responsive, friendly, and helpful hosts. 30 min walk to bus stop. Loved the veggie BBQ pack with fresh, local produce too. Had a restorative holiday!

    Would've been good to have more hooks in the pod to hang things from and maybe some curtains, but other than that it was great!

    Absolutely fantastic place to stay!
    The site is so private and well maintained, it was a real treat to stay here. Easy to find from the directions given, it is secluded, yet not too remote. There are pubs within about a 10 minute drive and Dawlish is nearby.
    The hut was so clean and well equipped. Everything you would need is provided, including bedding and towels.
    We had great fun cooking over the fire and just sitting back and enjoying the peace and quiet.
    Would highly recommend for a peaceful, get away from it all holiday.
    Communication from the host was great before the stay and they were quick to answer any questions we had. However, you were left to enjoy your stay - they have the balance just right.
    We will definitely book again and we have told all our friends that they also need to visit!

  • Liked: 

    The quiet atmosphere around the site and near the cabin was very peaceful. We had everything we needed from an exentable bed so there is extra room in the cabin if needed, seating outside and a toilet/shower block. The hosts were lovely and were always available if needed. There were nice options to order such as breakfast and BBQ packs.

    Disliked: 

    The only problem was being bitten by bugs. Being in the outdoors it is expected, but I got bit over 11 times. Just take bug repellent.

Directions

Local attractions

If there’s enough room after all the cream teas toddle off towards a local vineyard for tastings and tours about 10 minutes’ walk away.

It's worth staying energetic enough to pack in all the other activities around the local area as well, including forays to a fortified manor house with grounds home to about 600 deer at Powderham Castle (10 minutes' drive away).

Swap countryside explores for sandy sessions at the seaside resort of Dawlish Warren 15 minutes away; alternatively, if Tudor houses, a cracking cathedral and underground passageway tours sound top, these Exeter attractions are all within about 25 minutes’ drive.

Must see

  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (7.3 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (8.0 miles)
  • Living Coasts (10.6 miles)

National Trust

  • A la Ronde (4.1 miles)
  • Killerton: Clyston Mill (10.7 miles)
