About Brownscombe

Situated in the heart of Devon’s South Hams, close to Totnes and neighbouring Compton Castle, Brownscombe is the ultimate destination for luxury glamping in Devon. Lush green pastures and unadulterated night skies offer the chance to truly unwind and escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

Welcome to our special piece of Devon

Kate Tregoning and family at Brownscombe Luxury Glamping in Devon

Since we opened in 2015 Brownscombe has been awarded Gold awards from both Visit England and Green Tourism as well as winning Glamping Business of the year 2020 /21 at the Devon Tourism awards. We have added to our portfolio of properties to stay in and now have four Safari Tents and three Cabins  set in idyllic surroundings, in a private valley that our family have farmed for over 30 years. Andrew and I moved back to Devon from London in 2012, to try to give our two children, Annabel and Emma, the same freedom and country childhood that I and my three younger sisters shared here. Although we no longer farm as much land, Brownscombe has stayed true to its rustic roots, with pigs, sheep, chickens and ducks roaming around, but our glamping meadow is now full of wildflowers creating the perfect playground for little people to run around in, couples to escape to and groups of friends to enjoy for a taste of country life.

We hope you enjoy exploring Brownscombe and have a very happy stay with us. Let us really help you to relax by letting us cook for you or unwind with a massage in our Treatment room or simply use us as a base to explore beautiful Devon.

We’ve taken the romantic country charm of our special piece of Devon, and added a generous sprinkling of luxury and indulgence, creating what we hope will be the perfect family holiday, romantic getaway or memorable weekend with friends.

No midnight treks to the loos or washing up in cold water here. Our Tents all have their own kitchens and bathrooms, hot running water, the comfiest beds with radiators in the bedrooms and wood burning stoves to keep you toasty warm and even plug sockets to charge your phone. We’ve thought of everything so that all you’ll need to do is sit back and enjoy your stay. There’s even a little shop on site, the Brownscombe larder

The perfect base to explore Devon

We are only four miles away from several award winning beaches in Torbay, we’re close to Dartmoor, and we have a fantastic collection of National Trust properties, gardens and cliff walks for you to explore. There’s so much choice.

To help we’ve pulled together a list of things that our family and friends have enjoyed over the years. Have a look at our ‘Things to do’ page for our best pick of the things to do and see nearby.


No need to take our word for it, it’s far better to hear it from the people who’ve been staying here.  Take a look at our guests’ reviews.
