Outdoor seating area

General

  • Glamping pods on a peaceful organic farm a mile from Stokeinteignhead
  • A mile from a sandy beach and the South West Coast Path
  • Firepit, kitchenette and private bathroom for each pod

Cosy pods in a peaceful spot among the cobnut trees and looking out to an organic apple orchard… it’s quite possible you’ll want to nest at The Hen's Dens at Orchard Organic Farm for some time.

Grab a perch at this family-friendly site in the South Devon countryside, 15 minutes from Newton Abbot, and you’ll be in for a comfy break without having to cart a load of kit around. Each of the dens has heating and electrical supply and a short trot takes you to your own personal lockable amenities area with toilet, shower and a little kitchenette (with kettle, microwave and fridge – perfect for sorting brekkie). You can also add in comfy beds (meaning that you just need to bring your sleeping bags and pillows) and cooking kit if you're travelling really light.

A few lungfuls of fresh air may well tempt you out into the open for meals, so you’ve also got picnic benches, firepits and barbecues provided to keep you fed and toasty while you take in the rural views, the sunset or the starry skies. If the weather doesn’t approve such such antics, take refuge in the local pub, a mile away in pretty Stokeinteignhead.

Free-range folks will find plenty of roaming to be done in the area: Maidencombe beach and the South West Coast Path are a mile away and Torquay’s a 15-minute drive away. Exeter, Dartmoor National Park and Paignton Zoo are within 45 minutes.

Well worth the six hour journey11/10/2020

  • The Nest camping pod (Private restroom amenities)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Well designed, practical, and convenient pods. And the fact that they’re repurposed chicken coops make their story even more interesting. Well thought of separate private toilets and kitchenette design. And these were constructed prior to the pandemic, so they came very handy and timely, indeed. The most common and consistent themes throughout the site are that of cleanliness, every practical need met, customer’s interest at their best, and consistent “organic” brand. Jerry has provided excellent customer service from the time we rang after we’ve booked, during our arrival, and throughout the whole stay. And their lovely dog came to entertain all of us, which was a bonus. Devon was well worth the 6 hour journey and more so with our lovely stay at the Hen’s Dens. Hoping to visit again in the future.

Roomy pods with your own facilities09/07/2020

    Nice Roomy pods with your own facilities including super powerful showers and a microwave to make glamping that little bit easier.
    The pod itself is beautifully situated overlooking an orchard and only a short car journey away from the charming coastal village of Shaldon with its wide array of pubs and restaurants that will keep any foodie happy!

    Everything! We loved having our own little kitchen area and a private bathroom. All areas were clean and there was everything we needed. The children enjoyed running around the orchard and watching the chickens.
    We took our own air beds which deflated during the first night, I called Jerry and he arrived within minutes to lend us the most comfortable beds. Next time we will definitely hire these in advance!

    A lovely small site with good facilities. The site owner was very kind and helpful to us. We will definitely be returning. A great base for exploring the area.

    Disliked: 

    We got a bit confused as description said each hut had a bbq. We didnt realise that it is a stone area that you can use a disposable bbq on so we only bought charcoal thinking there would be a grate to use. The owner was very helpful though and loaned us the use of a double gas burner so we could cook our dinner.
    It would also be useful if there was a path leading from the main path to your individual hut as it did get rather muddy with all the rain and we were dragging it into the hut with us.

From the manager...

Hi Gemma
Great to meet you and thanks for the review. Apologies for the BBQ issue. We will un-tick the BBQ box to make it a little clearer. Thanks again.

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

Being a mere mile from the south Devon coast, you’ll no doubt be wanting to get down there, whatever flavour of seaside sojourn you favour. Get your boots to stride along the scenic South West Coast Path, or totter along to quiet Maidencombe beach, a mile away, for sandcastles and sea paddling.

No need to restrict yourselves to one beach though – there are plenty of gorgeous specimens along this stretch of coastline. Try Ness Cove (five minutes away by car) for fishing and rockpooling or Teignmouth (10 minutes) for traditional amusements along the pier and prom. Torquay’s Living Coasts animal park and Paignton Zoo are both within a 20-minute drive if you need a break from the beaches.

Active types may like to head north to Dartmoor National Park (45 minutes) for all sorts of walks and bike rides, plus horse riding, climbing, canoeing and wild swimming. Folks with more of an eye for history and culture will want to wend their way towards Exeter (half an hour) instead to take in the cathedral, museums and 600-year-old Powderham Castle.

Must see

  • Living Coasts (6.1 kilometers)
  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (10.6 kilometers)
  • Buckfast Abbey (18.1 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Compton Castle (7.1 kilometers)
  • Greenway (15.1 kilometers)
