Collaton Farm: Semira on a lovely April evening looking south west

General

  • Luxury safari tent in quiet countryside 15 minutes’ drive to Dartmouth
  • Less than 30 minutes’ drive to beaches or Dartmoor National Park
  • Kitchen, shower room, TV, balcony with seating and firepit

Down a little lane with nothing but a farm, fields and footpaths beyond, Collaton Farm is a rural hideaway 15 minutes’ drive from the historic harbour town of Dartmouth in south Devon.

Drive north for around 30 minutes to reach the moors and tors of Dartmoor National Park, or head south for around 15 minutes to half an hour to hit the coast and a string of sandy beaches from Blackpool Sands down to Salcombe and round to Bantham.

But with such a comfy place to call home – and such lovely countryside to dive into right from the site – you may feel the urge to set your car keys aside for a while. Central heating, fully kitted-out kitchen and living areas, TV, king and double bedrooms with memory foam mattresses and a shower that lets you choose monsoon or massage settings… there’s not a hint of roughing it here.

Outside is a balcony designed for lounging, with seats to snuggle up on while you get the firepit going or cook up some grub on the barbecue. Pick up all your provisions, including fresh-off-the-boat seafood, in Dartmouth. You can also arrange for a breakfast package or seasonal veggies to be waiting for you on arrival.

For the times you don’t fancy cooking, you could take a 45-minute stroll through the valley to reach the village pub in Blackawton, or drive 15 minutes to Dittisham to dine out at the riverside pub or café.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

    I agree with all the other reviews and the photos are spot on. Nice to sit on the decking enjoying the view, fabulous shower, comfy bed, safari themed interior, outside firepit & BBQ area and indoor heating. There is even a hairdryer. It is easy to forget that you are in a tent.

    Fabulous 3 night stay in this beautiful safari tent with all the facilities/equipment you could need. Great location; peaceful, tranquil setting in beautiful countryside for views/walking, yet close to some stunning local beaches (10 min drive), shops, pubs etc. Really nice to try something different, a combination of a tent and a lodge. Staying 'under canvas' but with the added bonus of great kitchen area with everything you could need, comfy sofa, dining area, super-comfortable beds, amazing bathroom/shower. Even had a TV, rugs on the floor and central heating if needed! Owners really have thought of everything. Spotlessly clean, great quality furnishings, every attention to detail to make this a wonderful place to stay. Excellent outside space; terrace with rattan furniture, partly under cover so shaded when hot and great when the rain started, private gravel patio area with loungers, benches, dining table, fire pit and gas barbecue. Loved having horses for neighhhhbours and a couple of visits from the very cute little dogs. All in all a fantastic experience we would definitely like to repeat.

    The Safari Tent was just amazing. They have thought of everything. We even had a lovely bottle of Prosecco in the fridge waiting for us. The decor and accessories are of a high standard and the beds were really comfortable. You have a choice of seating areas from a comfy sofa inside for cooler/wet days to ratten furniture on the veranda for enjoying a relaxing drink & chairs by the fire pit for a cosy alfresco evening. To have our own bathroom was a huge bonus but the shower with it’s own built-in radio, lights, massaging jets & other functions was definitely the height of luxury. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and didn’t want to leave. There is no doubt that we will be booking again when we can.

    The safari tent is fabulous, would highly recommend a stay. Very well kitted out with lovely furnishings. Outdoor seating options are varied so you can enjoy sitting outside in virtually any weather.
    Beautiful views across the hills and a short drive from Dartmouth, Salcombe and many beaches.
    Very helpful owners.

    We were honoured to be Don's first guests in their Semira safari tent for our wedding anniversary weekend and what a place it is - they have thought of everything and nothing was too much trouble for Don - even when I asked him to help jump start my car after having left the ignition on all night!

    The tent is really huge and spacious and the decor is well thought out and luxuriously appointed - the shower is nothing short of spectacular , added to that the setting is amazing and peaceful and it's location to local towns and attractions is ideal, especially for us as we had not visited the area before.

    We'll be returning for sure and will be recommending to our friends!

Local attractions

There’s enough great countryside and coast all around Collaton Farm to keep you busy for the whole of your stay. Messing about on the river Dart is a favourite pastime, or you could nip across on the ferry from Dartmouth to Kingswear and go for a jaunt on the Dartmouth Steam Railway.

To see the sights of south Devon by bike or on horseback, check out the cycle hire options in Kingsbridge (15 minutes) or Salcombe (25 minutes) and equestrian centres at the edge of Dartmoor (30 minutes). There are plenty of watersports providers in Salcombe too, or you could just chill out on the beach (or take a visit to the gin distillery for a locally produced tipple…)

Five minutes down the road from site is Woodlands Leisure Park, plus Dartmouth Golf Club and Spa. For shopping with an ethical eco vibe, head to the historic market town of Totnes (15 minutes’ drive). Or if haggling for antiques is up your street, a visit to Ashburton (30 minutes) should also be on your list.

Must see

  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (6.6 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (9.7 miles)
  • Living Coasts (10.0 miles)
