Gatcombe Park Farm Glamping: Arial view of site and location.

General

  • Welcoming site on an alpaca farm in south Devon
  • Totnes five minutes’ drive; Dartmoor and South Hams beaches 20 minutes
  • Alpaca treks and cream teas available; five minutes’ walk to the pub

If you’ve always longed to get close to alpacas, here’s your chance. The animals at Gatcombe Park Farm Glamping, in the South Hams village of Littlehempston, are as friendly as they come, and most of them will come and say hello. If you really want to get to know them, you can book an alpaca trek on arrival (for an extra charge), before rounding off a splendid day with a Devon cream tea back at base.

The adults-only accommodation options at Gatcombe Park Farm Glamping are a short walk away from a landscaped pond, where you're welcome to chill out with a drink and watch the alpacas grazing peacefully in neighbouring paddocks.

The site is located in a pretty village location, within five minutes’ walking distance of two pubs (one in the village and the other a little further away through the lanes and woodland), while Totnes (five minutes’ drive) has a choice of cafés, pubs and restaurants as well as all the shops you need to keep stocked up on essential supplies.

    Really great place to stay. You can tell they have put a lot of hard work into making your experience enjoyable and the fact they only allow a small number of campers means you have space and privacy to relax. Nothing was too much trouble and if you need any help or advise the owner is always happy to help. Beautiful views, local walks, good pubs and the Alpacas are very cute! We stayed in the showman’s hut and were very comfortable, plenty of space well kitted out. Will definitely visit again.

    Absolutely loved everything about this place. So peaceful yet so close to lots of places to visit and things to do. Phil is very friendly and always on hand to assist in anything, facilities were good for the amount of guests staying. Best advice to give if you wish to make the short trek to the pub is to take a really good torch as the walk back up the steep, narrow lane is in total darkness and rocky underfoot - scary too. The Tally Ho pub at the bottom is very cosy and was very welcoming by the locals, loved this pub. The Pig & Whistle you have to cross a large field, we only had one drink here as I was too worried about walking back across the field in total darkness with only a phone torch as our guide. The alpacas are soooooo adorable, a few babies whilst we were there - really wanted to bring one home :-) We will be back sometime in the future - thank you Phil xxx

    We loved our stay in the Shepherds Hut. Loved the decor, it was very clean and tidy and loved its quiet, peaceful position. The owner was very friendly and loved seeing his cute little dog, the chickens and the alpacas.
    If you are looking for a place to escape it all and get some peace and quiet we definitely can recommend staying here.

Directions

Local attractions

Once you’ve managed to drag yourselves away from the alpacas, get the walking shoes on and explore the many footpaths accessed from site. For more serious yomps across moorland to rocky tors, head to Dartmoor National Park (20 minutes’ drive to Buckfastleigh), where you can also spot wild ponies roaming free.

Alternatively, turn east to the Devon coast. Paignton (20 minutes) has a sandy beach, a promenade and traditional pier, and if you’re after something more secluded, St Mary’s Bay is an often-almost deserted cove reached by steps down the cliffside. From there, you can walk to the landmark Berry Head Lighthouse in Berry Head National Nature Reserve (20 minutes’ walk).

The high street in historic Totnes (five minutes’ drive) is full of small independent shops and art galleries, but the town is at its liveliest on Friday and Sunday, when street markets offer local foods and ciders, artisan crafts and antiques. Dartmouth (half an hour) has a lively waterfront and watersports along the River Dart, and sailing-mad Salcombe (40 minutes) has spectacular views of the Kingsbridge estuary. Brixham (25 minutes) is known for its lively fishing harbour and choice of seafood restaurants.

Must see

  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (4.1 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (5.6 miles)
  • Living Coasts (6.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Compton Castle (3.5 miles)
  • Greenway (5.8 miles)
