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.
