About Brownscombe

Situated in the heart of Devon’s South Hams, in a peaceful valley, Brownscombe is the ultimate destination for luxury glamping in Devon. Perfect for romantic escapes, family adventures and fun with friends.

Welcome to our special piece of Devon

Since opening 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 South West Tourism awards.

The portfolio of properties has grown to four Safari Tents and three Cabins all with hot tubs set in idyllic surroundings, in a private valley that has been in the family for 40 years.

Kate and Andrew Tregoning moved back to Devon from London in 2012, to try to give their children the same freedom and country childhood that Kate and her three younger sisters shared here. Although they no longer farm as much land, Brownscombe has stayed true to its rustic roots, with pigs, sheep, chickens and ducks roaming around, but the glamping meadow is now a haven for wildlife and 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 want to give you the same warm welcome that my parents gave us when we arrived with small children in tow on a Friday night;  a casserole in the oven, cosy, comfortable beds and something chilled to drink in the fridge! We hope that you can thoroughly relax here, marvel at the peace and the night sky, unwind with a soak in the hot tub and return to us many, many times because Brownscombe has become your happy place :)”

The perfect base to explore Devon

We are only four miles away from several award winning beaches in Torbay. where you can paddleboard, canoe or swim, 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 and as well as being dog friendly ourselves, so are our local pubs and beaches.

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.
