NEW - Camping at Brackenwood

We are now offering limited camping on site – only 4 tent pitches! We have a special sand topped, level, well-drained area set aside specifically for tents, for those of you who prefer life under canvas.

To ensure that you have privacy during your stay, each pitch is generously spaced and we are only offering 4 pitches. Choose from our pre-pitched tent option, for the ultimate in easy camping or just book a pitch and bring your own tent. Less than 50m away from any of the pitches you will find a hot shower, compost toilet and sink area as well as a covered, hot water washing up area. All toiletries are provided and are 100% natural. Each pitch has a designated cooking area, fire pit and tarp shelter for shade or protection.

You are off-grid here, so you can truly escape the stresses of modern life, and all within the 8 acres of lakeside re-wilding. We have made sure there are plenty of places to sit and relax, by the lake or under the trees. We can even provide a stove for hire if you don’t want to bring your own (see below ‘optional extras’).

We offer the same breakfast delivery service as we do for our Hedgehog Hideaway stays, so for a small fee you can have a hot breakfast delivered to your tent!

So why not take advantage of the glorious Devon countryside and escape to this small and exclusive site for a break away from it all.
