Rocombe Valley Retreat at Springfields Farm in South Devon | 2018 Season starts Easter!
The perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We are nestled amongst rolling Devonshire Countryside just outside Torquay, but we could be 1000 miles away… Glamping Torbay – get the best of both worlds.
We manage a small, peaceful site with a cosy Shepherds Hut and beautiful Yurts set in an idyllic rural location beside a brook. (we survived the snow btw)
Discover the natural wildlife in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty just outside Torbay!
The valley and surrounding hills have a network of lanes and tracks making it ideal countryside for walking and mountain biking – or just take a stroll to one of the many country pubs around and about the area…
Wander over to watch the Chickens scratch about, or see the Carp feed and bask in the sun – you may even see one of the Otters that live in our stream, catch a Buzzard circling overhead, or a Jay flash past…
As requested by some guests we have now moved the hot tub to the end of the yurt meadow. You now have uninterrupted views of the rolling hills and can hear the stream running right next to you, but still have the privacy of being tucked away at the rear of our beautiful plot.
The latest addition to our family is a totally original Gypsy Caravan. She is tucked into the hedge by the bottom lake, so that when you emerge blinking into the light you may well be treated to a view of Canada Geese teaching their brood to swim directly in front of you!
Glamping Torbay goes up a gear with our safari tent
We are a couple of miles from the sea with beautiful coastal walks and quiet sheltered beaches and yet just 30 minutes drive away from Dartmoor.
Our Shepherds Hut is in full swing , so although the seasons have changed you can still snuggle down in one of our little hideaways. Once the sun pokes its head out from behind the clouds (which it does here more than any other place in the UK remember – we are the English Rivera!) you are in a perfect place to take advantage of everything that beautiful South Devon has to offer…
Or you may just prefer to lounge around the camp and watch Nature unfold around you…

We now have a shared covered ‘american barn’ communal space – with a cooker and fridge AND Cob Wood-fired Pizza Oven
