It would help us to know when you are likely to arrive. If you could text Kate on 07884 181677 when you reach Exeter, then we will be ready and waiting for you. It should take 30 minutes from there.


We’re situated in the heart of Devon’s South Hams, close to Totnes and the picturesque village of Marldon.

Our recommended route:

From Exeter, heading south on the M5, the M5 splits between A38/A380. Follow the A380 signposted for Torquay for several miles until the road divides at Newton Abbot. Stay in the outside lane signposted Torquay NB this is a brand new section of dual carriageway and may not appear on your sat nav yet.

  1. Continue on this road until you get to a set of traffic lights  and get in the right hand lane signposted for Totnes, Brixham and Dartmouth. Continue straight over the next large roundabout and at the second roundabout stay in the outside lane and take the third exit signposted Marldon.
  2. After a short distance you will reach a small roundabout, take the 3rd exit signposted Compton.
  3. After approximately one mile you will reach Compton. Travel all the way through the village for half a mile, passing the National Trust’s Compton Castle on your left.
  4. Continue around a sharp right hand bend in the lane and at the second set of 30mph signs turn left up the drive signposted Brownscombe Luxury Glamping and Compton Holt. Compton Holt Lodge is a large white house at the end of our drive, which is visible as you drive towards it.
  5. If you end up at a small  junction signposted Windthorn Lane and North Whilborough, retrace your steps, as you have gone too far!

If you rely on satnav

If you rely on a satnav, it could take you on several different routes (including some extremely narrow lanes!) and eventually you will arrive at the entrance to the castle. Keep the castle on your left and drive out of the village, when you see two 30mph signs turn left up the drive for Compton Holt and Brownscombe Luxury Glamping as above.

Where to park

As you come up the drive, bear left in front of Compton Holt and you will see the communal parking area for all guests at Brownscombe Luxury Glamping adjacent to Brownscombe larder. Please note that the field is not suitable for cars but it is possible to unload/load close to your tent, once we have shown you how to get there on foot.
