Devon coast and countryside all at the same time? Stay at Ducklings Den, in the splendid South Hams area, and you’ll have an orchard on one side and views all the way down to the sea a short walk away on the other. It’s part of a working sheep farm and, as the name suggests, your nearest neighbours will be the farm’s resident ducks.
Your accommodation here is a single fully furnished bell tent that’s all geared up for a luxury family holiday (and that includes the family dog, if you have one). It’s been set up with a comfy double bed and two small singles (best suited to children), plus all sorts of handy bits including bedding, towels, fairy lights and battery-powered candles.
All the essentials are sorted here, and guests have access to a luxury outdoor shower and toilet. A little kitchen is provided too, with a mini fridge, a kettle, a gas burner, various utensils and access to a washing-up shack.
More in the mood for alfresco cooking? The tent has its own firepit just outside, and you’ll also have access to the communal barbecue and pizza oven. This is all set up in a lovely part of the farm near the duck pond, with seating for your outdoor meals and drinks.
There are lots of ways to spend time in the open air around here – you can join a footpath down to the beach at Hope Cove just outside the farm, and it’s just a few minutes’ drive to the likes of Salcombe, Bantham and Thurlestone.

Your first port of call should certainly be Hope Cove – the village is a mile away and has two lovely beaches (with lifeguards in summer) along with pubs and places to eat. It’s a good place to pick up the coast path too, for a walk up to South Milton Sands or all the way round to Salcombe.
Salcombe (10 minutes’ drive) is worth a visit in its own right too – it’s home to the National Trust’s Overbeck’s Garden and gin tours at the Salcombe Distilling Company, as well as a couple of beaches that are great for watersports and boat hire.
There are more lovely beaches at places like Bantham (15 minutes), Blackpool Sands (half an hour) and Bigbury-on-Sea (25 minutes), where you can take a ride on the sea tractor out to Burgh Island. If you fancy a change of scenery though, take a day out in Plymouth (45 minutes), meet the animals at Dartmoor Zoo (40 minutes) or head out for a hike in the Dartmoor National Park (half an hour).
