Deer's Leap Retreat: Bell tent area

General

  • Peaceful glamping site with views of the countryside, lake and ponies
  • A 20-minute drive from Exmoor National Park and 40 to Woolacombe beach
  • Games barn, fishing, tennis court; units have beds with feather duvets

A stay at Deer's Leap Retreat means settling down in a bell tent including a woodburning stove and a real bed with a soft feather duvet and proper mattress, with nothing but the sound of the birds, sheep and Jersey cows to disturb you from staring out at views of the far-reaching countryside…

If that sounds a little too serene, activities at the park are centred around the farm and surrounding rural area of north Devon: you can fish at the lake, feed the chickens or play tennis on the all-season court (bring a racket) on site. Lots of outdoor space is around for kids to play on and a games barn with a pool table, table tennis and darts should keep them entertained if it’s raining out.

For trips further afield, ask at the farm about walks straight from the gates to local villages full of old cottages and past wildflower-filled hedgerows with birds to spot including pheasants and buzzards; check with staff regarding activities including horse riding, fishing, golfing and clay shooting in the local area as well.

If you're hoping for harder hikes, the hilly open moorland of Exmoor National Park is a 20-minute journey by car – with regular tours leaving from Dulverton – and Woolacombe Beach is within 40 minutes for seaside strolls along the South West Coast Path.

Back in your bell tent after sandy sunbathing days or windswept walks, you can cosy up on the floor cushions and rugs while drinking the tea and coffee provided.

Please note

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

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

  • Liked: 

    Lovely large king-size comfortable bed and bedding. Plenty of facilities to make it home like, hot shower.

    Disliked: 

    Tent filled with smoke one evening due to stove burner backing up. Was late at night and not great with a young child as had to sit outside the tent with children until smoke completely cleared. Gave me anxiety about the whole situation for the rest of thr night. Didn't use Steve burner again

From the manager...

Dear Nikki,

Thank you for your review.
We are so sorry that you had this experience and it caused you concern.
This is the first time that this has happened and I understand that it was rectified by James removing some of the wood from the stove burner.
As you had this experience, we will make sure that the instructions clearly instruct the maximum pieces of wood that should be added to the stove.

Again we are sorry that you had this experience and we work hard to make sure it doesn't happen to any future guests.

Best wishes,

Jess
