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: we're sure work wouldn't find you were you to settle down here for a matter of weeks.
The retreat is also spiffingly well set in its Devon locale, with its glamping units in a field beside a stream and three mighty pretty lakes, all a couple of miles from Devon beaches and a piffling ten-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.
As it's Devon and as it's near the coast, you'll probably already know that this is lovely locale. There's loads to do within a few miles or a short drive and if you want to go a bit further, Cornwall's Eden Project can be reached in a couple of hours. Dartmoor is half an hour's drive away.
Rocombe Valley Retreat is also a couple of mile from beaches with watersports and fishing, as well as the dog-friendly beach at the Ness in Shaldon (tell your canine to reach it via the smugglers' tunnel). Even closer to home, many a lane and track for walking or mountain biking snakes around the Rocombe valley.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on one pitch.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
