Cheglinch Farm Glamping: Lovely quiet countryside location

General

  • Quiet, family-run glamping site on a working dairy farm in north Devon
  • Private shower, toilet and cooking facilities for each bell tent
  • Three miles from Ilfracombe and a 10-minute drive to Woolacombe

North Devon, a farm, and luxury bell tents in a wildlife haven close to the coast… if these tick your holiday boxes (as well they should), you might want to check out Cheglinch Farm Glamping.

Half a mile from the village of West Down and three miles from Ilfracombe, Cheglinch is on a sheltered field on a secluded and family-run dairy farm, with loads of room to run around and plenty of wildlife to spot. Deer, owls and a family of pheasants all visit here, as well as birds and insects of all sorts attracted to the four-acre field's small pockets of marshland.

Each tent comes with a firepit outside so you can sizzle supper against the Devon sunset – perhaps while the kids tear around the huge field, splash in the stream (don't forget the wellies), or get acquainted with the indoor and outdoor play areas. Kids are also welcome to meet the farm's family of guinea pigs, collect eggs, watch calves being fed and see the herd of cows grazing within the hamlet… it's a sure cert they'll like the cow-themed duvet covers in the bell tents too.

Indoors, proper and comfy beds are made up for your arrival, there's a woodburning stove just outside your tent for cosy nights and cooking, with tea lights and fairy lights placed and strung all around. The farm also has a play barn with games and activities for kids, a dining table for each tent, and fridge, freezer, microwave and laundry facilities. There's electricity up here too, so you can charge your phone and other gadgets if you really can't face a digital detox.

West Down, a short stroll away, has a friendly village pub, a play area and a community shop selling local produce.

    Very helpful and friendly host, Ella. Excellent facilities, clean, well kept and equipped, everything well organised. Beds comfortable and plenty of blankets and hot water bottles!

    A thoroughly lovely experience. Ella has thought of everything! Was so well considered. We have a 5 and 7 year old who loved the outside space and the playbarn with ample games and activities. The farm is in a great location and we had fresh eggs from our own chickens every morning. Ella has even provided additional blankets and hot water bottles for the chilly evening. The shower was hot and the set up made it so easy and relaxing for a great weekend! Cannot sing their praises enough! Will definitely be back.

    Everything. Ella and Farmer Simon had literally thought of everything in order to give us an amazing stay at Cheglinch. Perfect venue for all.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing was that on the first night we were very cold but that’s due to the lovely English temperature. Cheglinch provided extra fluffy blankets, hot water bottles and a fire pit to keep us cosy however we are inexperienced campers so we weren’t as prepared as what we should have been Friday night. Saturday night however was very different. We were very cosy and all slept like babies.
