We are delighted to be featured in the Best UK Family Glamping holidays in the May issue of Conde Nast Traveller, here is the review in full;
For Animal Antics, Brownscombe, Devon Some people long for the heat-seared plains of the Serengeti; others the rolling South Hams, spread thick with buttercups. The big five here include red deer, barn owls, horseshoe bats and badgers that gruntle as they root for worms. Glamping’s roots go back to the safari tent- an Edwardian living room under canvas – and here are three new ones, wood framed on raised platforms, capped by flourishes of green as neat as a boy scout’s neckerchief. There’s basil oil in the cupboard, long Yuyu hot-water bottles in the beds, power showers in the bathroom – even the dustpan and brush is to be coveted. Order ahead and Kate Tregoning, whose family have farmed here for the past 30 years, will have a South African potjie on the cast-iron stove for arrival, along with chilled Prosecco and home-made brownies. In the morning, she rounds up the animals for children to help feed, and collect eggs; then there are rope swings and cargo nets to tumble into and a wicker den to plan adventures from. Take the ferry to Dartmouth to go crabbing with bacon for bait, then tip them out and watch claws scuttle for the water.
