General

  • Luxury bell tents with carpet and wifi
  • Decking surrounded by lots of garden space
  • Swish shower block with underfloor heating and mood lighting

Now this is some serious glamping... and with some seriously swish facilities too. Sunridge Glamping has luxury bell tents with a bit of a Devon twist – carpet, double bed and wifi for starters – and a shower block so indulgent you'd be happy to have it set up at home...

Accommodation first: there are only two bell tents at Sunridge so privacy and space is assured, and both come with those carpets and double beds as well as a table and chairs, rugs and beanbags. Each has its own deck surrounded by plentiful garden space – and is among the hills and streams of the Yealm Valley in the South Hams for glamping in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

And that indulgent shower block... as we say, it's seriously swish and has underfloor heating, mood lighting, a shaving socket and a heated towel rail. Outside, Sunridge also has a washing-up sink, bench seating and a communal firepit.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Me and my partner stayed at sunridge glamping pod in august for my birthday & we absolutely loved everything! There isn't one single thing that we could pick a fault with. I was welcomed at the Pod with a Happy Birthday banner across the front doors & a bottle of champagne on the table inside which was a total surprise and I was really grateful. It was clean, tidy and smart. It was very modern. It was cosy. It was set in a beautifully scenic area. It was very private. It was perfect. Thank you so much

    Despite the bad weather we had a lovely time and the underfloor heating in the gorgeous shower block made us forget about all of the rain!! The tents have taken a beating this year with the bad weather (the owner told us) but that didn't ruin our enjoyment! We loved the fact the site felt so quiet and tranquil and you cannot be seen by the other bell tent as we were on a different level surrounded by giant bamboo. It felt very private. Most of the glamping sites we have been too have been overcrowded and on-top of one another and this is what makes sunridge stand above the rest! Well return again next year...

    We stayed here for our second honeymoon late last year and we still talk about what a great time we had. We took our dog and spent the days going for long walks and pub lunches and then the evening relaxing in the pod. We used the amazing 3D tv and the DVD's left for us and the playstation was such a good touch. I would recommend this to anyone and we can't wait to return. We met the host and he was very helpful and friendly. Thank you for such a great time and the wonderful memories.

Gorgoeus quirky Ecopod with wonderful facilities. 28/07/2017

    We hunted for months to find something a bit quirky. This delightful little pod ticked all of the boxes when we found it. Our stay was wonderful. Everything was very clean and like new when we arrived. They really have done a wonderful job with the limited space. A gorgoeus garden area with hot tub under the trees was a real treat. Then late night movies inside on the massive tv with tasty treats cooking in the oven. The kitchen area is fab and well equipped. The shower was lovely and warm for a morning soak. A perfect break away and highly recommended! We'll be back...

Lovely site just needs TLC 24/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Yvonne M. Confirmed

  • Camping pod

    This was our first Eco-pod experience.

    When we first viewed the pod and site on the website it looked amazing and it is in most ways don't get me wrong but it really needs some TLC now.

    The site is beautiful and the shared w/c facilities are OK and although we had our own toilet/shower within the pod, we found that showering for longer than 1 minute meant that the foot tray would over flow and spill. You were not able to enjoy the shower. Instead we had to use the shared unit. Our's was obviously blocked and I'm sorry, I didn't fancy putting my hands down there to clear it.

    On top of that, please! put a curtain in the bathroom or some form of privacy as it's not that nice when you are trying to shower or otherwise and you see that other guests can literally see what you are doing. Toilet privacy is a must.

    The cooking facilities and entertainment were fine and we managed to watch the 3D movie selection that is left for you. (Came in handy on the rainy day)

    The sleeping arrangements would be great if the bed was replaced. It seriously was like sleeping on a hard wood floor. We genuinely had no sleep. The sofa bed has seen better days and had a slightly nasty odour to it. A deep clean or some TLC is all that's needed.

    The Hot tub did make up for some of the suffered aches and pains from sleeping and I must admit it was lovely to sit in the hot bubbles whilst it was raining. (Crazy to some), you really must try it.

    If you are looking to drive around from this spot, I would warn you that the roads are very very very narrow and almost made me have to change underwear a few times. Stay put don't drive.

    I would of given 5 starts if I genuinely felt it was a 5 star experience. For the price you would expect a little more.

    Would we stay again - Undecided

    Disliked: 

    Shower - Overflowing and blocked

    Toilet - Lack of privacy (No curtain)

    Sofa bed - Smelly and Uncomfortable

    Driving - Just don't!

Top class glamping fixing all of the 'problems' with trad camping! 12/07/2017

    The tent was immaculate and really secluded. Shaing the lovely bathroom with one other tent posed no problem and with only 3 deellings on the site it was incredibly peaceful. Barbeque was great for dinner and breakfast. Bed was comfy with warm duvet. Fridge worked perfectly. Kettle was handy. Totally loved the who experience and will be back for a longer stay.

    Disliked: 

    Would have loved to be able to swim in the lake but the water was not very inviting.

Directions


From London, take the M4, then the M5 to Exeter. Continue onto the A38 leaving at the junction to Ugborough and Ermington. Follow the signs for the A379 to Yealmpton. One mile before Yealmpton turn right at Dunstone Cross and travel one mile to us.

From the north, take the M5 to Bristol and continue on the M5 until the A38 in Devon. Then follow directions as above.

From the south-west, drive to Plymouth, take the A379 to Kingsbridge and head towards Elburton / Brixton / Yealmpton. One mile after Yealmpton turn left at Dunstone Cross and travel one mile to us.

Look out for a bungalow-style roofed house. Next to the house is a narrow cobbled lane: start going down here and turn immediately left into the gate. Follow the lane and you'll notice a big field with horses to your right. Turn left at the bamboo planting.

You can park on the chippings near the shower block to avoid damaging the grass near your tent.

Prior to arrival, we will confirm which tent you're in so that you can just let yourselves in, relax and enjoy.

Local attractions

Lots and lots to get your teeth into around the South Hams and Devon... including several fab beaches just minutes away that are often deserted: have a wander along Mothercombe Beach, five minutes away and used as a location for an adaptation of Sense and Sensibility (as was nearby Georgian Saltram House).

Take to your feet for the miles of country trails around Sunridge Glamping, where you can take your pick from paths along the River Erme as well as high-up hikes of the South West Coastal Path.

Many local villages are nearby to wander and pick up fresh local produce like locally grown chillies and spices, fish landed daily, dairy produce, Devon clotted cream and the freshest of eggs, and other Devon delicacies like pheasant, quail, sea bass, John Dory fish, free-range home-cured bacon...

Also around the villages are snapworthy scenes of eighteenth and nineteenth century architecture, dozens of antique shops and many old pubs serving traditional local ale; have a day in Dartmouth if poss to find craft and pastry shops, jewellers and organic cafés serving cream teas with jam made from locally grown strawberries.

Have a look – and an eat – too at Kingsbridge, Modbury, Newton Ferrers, Noss Mayo and Yealmpton, all close by and all with award-winning pubs and restaurants with sea and river views.
