At Brownscombe you can expect luxury accommodation away from all the stress of everyday life in the beautiful South Devon countryside. There are 4 sumptuous safari tents sleeping up to 6 all with hot running water and electricity. Plus a beautiful cabin with a copper bath which sleeps, 4 people.

The luxury glamping site is tucked away in a private valley in Compton, South Devon where you will find beautiful wildflowers and plenty of wildlife including rabbits, foxes, badgers and all kinds of different birds. There are lots of animals on site that you can feed and plenty of eggs to be collected plus a secret play area and a games room!

If you can drag yourselves away from the site Devon has plenty to offer such as award winning beaches and coves, lots of outdoor activities and many excellent places to eat and drink. The children will love Splashdown Quaywest with its water slides and Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, where you can watch the animals feeding and enjoy a ride on a mini train. Of if you are feeling brave of heart, then a visit to the allegedly haunted Berry Pomeroy Castle will test your nerves!

Back on site Brownscombe Luxury Glamping offers 4 fantastic safari tents, each sleeping up to 6 people in a double room, a twin room and a cabin bed in the living area. There is an open plan space with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and daybed plus the all-important bathroom with hot running water! There is even an electric socket in case you want to charge your mobile. Outside each tent has a decked area with furniture and a BBQ. Tamar & Bovey have the option of a wood-fired hot tub, Yealm has the option of a luxury electric hot tub - being set up next to the tent so you can relax in the bubbles after a busy day exploring the local area.

There is also a beautiful wooden cabin, which is set in its own secluded corner and offers complete privacy. This is suitable for a couple or a family of 4. The adults benefit from a master double bedroom and a luxurious bathroom with a copper bath. Slide back the bathroom wall and you can bathe in the open air and enjoy the views of the countryside around you. The children will love their secret bunk beds, with fold around curtain and porthole windows to the outside world. A wood burner keeps the cabin cosy and there is a fully equipped kitchen if you wish to cook. Or simply light the barbeque fire pit and enjoy some marshmallows for dessert after dining out.

There is an on-site honesty shop - Brownscombe Larder - selling delicious local produce, drinks and ice creams. Guests can pre-order from a selection of different breakfast and BBQ hampers and they will be waiting upon your arrival.
