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.

Please note

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

    Fantastic Stay at a small cute yet well equipped mini campsite! Only 3 caravans, all well spread out but max 2 min walk to the toilet and showers. Hardly saw another camper and we were there for 4 nights! We had a fire every night, wood and lighters were supplied along with most other things we could need (emergency stove, washing up liquid, tea, coffee, milk etc). The gypsy caravan had an incredibly comfy double bed and duvet, which didn't disappoint. The site is easy to find and a 10 minute drive to Dawlish, 30mins to Torquay. Great location for coastal path walking and an All in all a great stay and one we would thoughougly recommend!

    The cabin was lovey and peaceful. We were made very comfortable with fresh eggs and bacon brought to us each morning. Really good place if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

    Everything. From the moment I booked I was looking forward to it, I received an email from Suzanne and Dylan (the hosts) straight away welcoming is and to see if we needed anything else. When we arrived our gypsy van was secluded in our own glade, our own fire pit and plenty of wood, tea, coffee, milk and hand sanitizer! You couldn't ask for more. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute, we'll definitely be returning, we found our own bit of heaven. Returning to nature is the phrase for this campsite. Just wonderful.

    It was very quiet (except for the owl at night) beautiful surroundings, gorgeous lake, more things provided in the caravan than I had expected (gas stove, tea and sugar, lantern, cutlery, plates, glasses, washing up liquid)

    Disliked: 

    Outside seats weren’t the best, just needed a few nails in the wood to stop it falling apart! Added to the rustic feel though!

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)
