Travellers Rest: Aeveen

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/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

    The cabin was in an excellent location, really well set up and the hosts were very accommodating. Great place to stay to completely get away into nature. The shared toilet cabins were well looked after.

    Disliked: 

    Only issue we had was buying and keeping food chilled as the fridge area didn’t keep the food we had chilled.

    The atmosphere of the hut and how peaceful and relaxing it was it was amazing.
    We have loved every minute in there. Owners were always helpful and we had everything ready before we arrived. I would definently recommend this place if you want to cut yourself from city life and would come back next year. We never felt so relaxed before.

    Lovely place. Beautiful location.

    We were very unfortunate as when we were travelling to Dawlish the weather warnings were everywhere saying of torrential rain . We arrived with wellies and waterproofs etc to cope with weather as we are hardened campers. But having booked two nights we had to for go our second night and book into a bed and breakfast as the mud was just too much. But would love to return in better weather as the scenery is lovely.

Beautifully secluded with almost everything you could need.06/28/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomFrancis P.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Caoimhe camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The spot is beautiful and totally secluded. Other than the odd faint train toot all you can hear is wildlife. Everything you need for a real glamping experience is supplied. The ‘pod’ is really well laid out and makes the best use of space so it doesn’t feel too small and the bed for me at 5ft 5 was super comfy. It’s easy to get in the holiday vibe as the grove is a serious haven and I spent most of my time trying to distinguish the different bird song.

    Disliked: 

    A note on where to find water would have been helpful for when we first arrived. Maybe somewhere to put dry recycling near the pod. As you can see very little to dislike!

    Compost loo ( first time using one). Definitely not put off by this as like they say it's back to nature.

  • Liked: 

    We loved our stay at travellers rest. The location of the hut was absolutely lovely with the sheep in the field behind us and a lovely view of the pond in front. The huts were set far enough apart so that you really do have privacy. Basic cooking utensils and equipment were provided and we enjoyed a great bbq in the sun. Milk and ice packs had been put in the ice box before we arrived which was great.

    Disliked: 

    Our only issue was that it didn't seem like anyone came and checked the cleanliness of the toilets/showers. Unfortunately by the end of our stay one of the compost toilets was full to the top and as someone had misused the other compost toilet and put shavings down the wrong part it wasn't really usable.

Directions

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 (7.3 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (8.0 miles)
  • Living Coasts (10.6 miles)

National Trust

  • A la Ronde (4.1 miles)
  • Killerton: Clyston Mill (10.7 miles)
