General

  • Dog-friendly glamping in south Devon woodland, surrounded by a lake
  • Each unit is in its own private glade with lake views and a firepit
  • Breakfast, picnic and barbecue packs (including vegetarian) to buy

Hide among the trees at Travellers Rest, a south Devon glamping site set up for peaceful adults-only stays in a woodland surrounded by a lake. This place is also on a farm, so while mini humans won’t be around, you might very well come across small creatures like lambs and micro pigs instead...

Meet the animals then shack up in your smart accommodation: the thoughtfully designed gypsy caravans at this site each have their own private glade with a firepit as well as lush views of the lake and surrounding countryside. The units are fully kitted out, with memory foam-topped beds, towels and bed linen provided, as well as lights and charging points.

Bringing the dogs? Well-behaved dogs are welcome as well (two per caravan max, please), so much so that bowls and bedding are provided so your canine can eat and sleep in style (please just ensure that dogs are kept under control at all times, so that the park's wildlife isn't disturbed).

And once they're fed, watered and thoroughly rested? Four-legged friends are sure to appreciate setting off on walks around this Dawlish setting, either along the coast or the banks of the River Exe nearby. By car, Traveller's Rest is close to the A38 for ease of getting about... perhaps to another place for walkies...

Sorting supper’s just as much of a doddle: the park’s owners strive to make everything as breezy as possible for guests, including sourcing food and snacks. Each caravan is stocked with tea, coffee and fresh milk for your arrival and breakfast, picnic and barbecue packs (including for vegetarians) are available to buy. Since you’re in Devon, it’s also well worth splashing out on one of the traditional cream teas...

Communal amenities are swish at this park too: they include a bathroom block with two self-contained rooms, with an eco-friendly compost toilet and a luxury shower in each.

Please note

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Guests under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

    Lovely stay at Travellers rest,we were very happy with our little break away.The setting is just beautiful....we stayed in Erin which was closest to the lake.The caravan was very comfortable with a bed that pulled out.The bed itself had a very comfortable mattress.The pillows are a little flat so if you are somebody who needs a high pillow I would suggest bringing your own,though there are a couple of cushions which could also be used.
    We were also pleasantly surprised with the level of utensils that were provided,definitely enough to make a meal.There was a nice big bottle of water which was more than enough for several cups of tea/coffee and washing up,with plenty to fill our water bottles for the day also.We ordered the bbq pack and both the burgers and steaks were delicious.The cool box kept everything fresh,the milk provided was still good two days later before we left.
    The toilet and shower were clean at all times,although with a bit of a smell from the toilet.This is to be expected with the type of toilet though and was in no way horrific.There was some nice strong air freshener which masked the smell if you do find it too much.The shower had nice water pressure and easily adjustable temperature.They were also only a short walk from the caravan which was easily walked at night,although a torch is definitely needed.
    The only other thing that would have been nice would have been some curtains over the windows,not from a privacy point of view as there really isnt anyone around but my husband has trouble sleeping unless it's quite dark.We did just hang some scarves/towels over them so not a massive problem.
    All in all a really lovely stay and great value for the two nights.This place is a great find and we will definitely be back

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

If there’s enough room after all the cream teas toddle off towards a local vineyard for tastings and tours about 10 minutes’ walk away.

It's worth staying energetic enough to pack in all the other activities around the local area as well, including forays to a fortified manor house with grounds home to about 600 deer at Powderham Castle (10 minutes' drive away).

Swap countryside explores for sandy sessions at the seaside resort of Dawlish Warren 15 minutes away; alternatively, if Tudor houses, a cracking cathedral and underground passageway tours sound top, these Exeter attractions are all within about 25 minutes’ drive.

Must see

  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (11.8 kilometers)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (12.9 kilometers)
  • Living Coasts (17.1 kilometers)

National Trust

  • A la Ronde (6.6 kilometers)
  • Killerton: Clyston Mill (17.2 kilometers)
