General

  • In a secluded Devon valley a couple of miles from the coast
  • Adjacent to three coarse fishing lakes and 10 minutes from Torbay
  • Within 15 minutes' walk of the nearest pub

What a well named site this is. For Rocombe Valley Retreat near Newton Abbot in Devon is indeedly in a valley, and is a peaceful bolthole from bosses and the like: it's highly likely that work wouldn't find you were you to settle down here for a matter of weeks...

The retreat is also splendidly well set in its Devon locale, with iglamping units in a field beside a stream and three mighty pretty lakes, all a couple of miles from Devon beaches and a piffling 10-minute drive from Newton Abbot, Teignmouth and Torbay. The nearest pub, serving food and ales, is a 15-minute walk away, and four more pubs and restaurants are within a five-minute drive.

All Rocombe Valley accommodation comes fully equipped with cooking equipment, cosy double beds with all bedding supplied, and woodburning stoves using wood coppiced from trees on the farm. Flushing toilets and hot showers are within easy reach in the farm amenities blocks.

There's parking on site for several cars and coarse fishing is available on the lakes adjacent to the valley.
