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 we are the 4th driveway on the left, up the drive signposted Brownscombe Luxury Glamping / 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

Brownscombe is clearly identified on Google Maps but if you enter the postcode into 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. If this happens, keep the castle on your left and drive out of the village, past some barns and we are the 4th turning on the left up the drive for Compton Holt / 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 and you will find us waiting for you at reception if you have texted us on 07884 181677 when you pass Exeter. 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. Reception closes at 7pm, so please make arrangements for your arrival if you are likely to arrive later.
