Romantic retreats for couples

Could this be the most romantic spot in Devon? It’s pretty special that’s for sure.

Brownscombe is the perfect place for a romantic retreat. Whether you’re celebrating an anniversary, surprising a loved one on their birthday, or want somewhere to hide away for a secret honeymoon, we’ve got everything you need to be able to retreat from the world and lose yourselves in each other.

Watch the sun set while sipping bubbly in the hot tub, or lie back in comfy garden chairs with a fire crackling in the barbecue fire pit and gaze at stars so bright they’ll take your breath away…

A weekend full of sunshine, love and stars! The hot tub was amazing and toasty when we arrived, with a bottle of prosecco chilling.

The Tabernacle is perfect for special occasions

A tiny chapel for two

Our sweet tin Tabernacle is tucked into a dip in the side of the hill, totally secluded in its own meadow. It’s utterly endearing with its stained glass window and tiny bell tower. Cosy up with a hot chocolate in the rocking chair by the stove, or relax outside with a glass of bubbly in your own private hot tub.

A secluded cabin

Our Cabin is designed for romance, with its luxurious copper bath, outdoor shower, and huge hot tub. Lie back and listen to the owls hoot while sipping champagne. You’ll wake up to the most breathtaking views up the valley from the window at the foot of your comfy double bed.

Complementary classes help you to connect with nature

From 2019 we are offering a group midweek outdoor Body Flow class every Tuesday (a fusion of yoga and pilates). Breathe deeply of the fresh Devon air while stretching out those city aches. You’ll leave you feeling restored and revitalised – ready for few more hours of rest and contemplation.

You have something very beautiful here and you have thought of every last detail. Thank you for helping to provide a very relaxing long weekend, it has been everything we wanted and more.


Make it extra special

If you’re planning a trip for a loved one, there’s lots of things we can do to help you make it really magical. Pre-order a “toasty tub”  and we’ll have it ready to step into as you arrive, along with a chilled bottle of bubbly of course. Choose from our delicious menu of home cooked meals or arrange for private dining in our Lodge. Or chat to us about the best places to plan gentle walks and day trips or book for a romantic meal nearby. We’re happy to help organise any little extras or personalised surprises and love helping people to plan the perfect stay – we have known about several proposals weeks before they have happened to help make it perfect!

He chose this week to propose. BEST WEEK EVER! We lived off champagne and double yolk dippy eggs and made friends for life with the pigs! We’ll be back, for a very long time to come…


Bring a baby or toddler

Just because you have a small person in tow, doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a romantic break. Our Safari Tents and the Cabin are perfectly set up for little people to join you, and if you’re a couple booking a tent with a child under one, you are still eligible for our midweek couples discount. Brownscombe is perfectly equipped for families so you won’t need to bring much stuff with you, we can provide cots, highchairs, suitable crockery and cutlery for little people, not to mention hours of entertainment meeting all the animals and making friends on the farm.

The quaint Tabernacle tucked away on its own was very peaceful. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever slept in, and to lay in bed looking out was peaceful. Sitting in the hot tub with the stars out as lovely. Last morning watching a fox come out and play made the ending perfect…
