The Wood Life offers a real get away from it all glamping experience close to Exeter in Devon. We offer a large safari tent, sleeping six, set in its own private woodland and a couple of miles the other side of the village of Kenn is a shepherds hut set in its own orchard sleeping two people.
The Woodland Camp with safari tent is designed to offer plenty of space and is perfect for families with young children who want to explore a wild woodland. The large, well equipped tent is set on a wooden deck enclosed by a beautiful handmade chestnut fence. There are two bedrooms in the tent, one double and one twin as well as a sofa bed.
There is a well equipped kitchen with gas powered hobs and fridge, tea, coffee and even fresh herbs. There are indoor and outdoor dining tables and seating area, a cosy wood burner, complete with oven. There is also a fire pit for cooking, pots, pans, a BBQ grill, cooking utensils, bedding, towels, torches etc. In fact all you need to bring is your clothes and a bit of food.
A separate wash room houses a wood-powered shower and composting toilet. But best of all you are the only people in the wood for the length of your stay.
The Orchard Wagon is set in an old orchard and comprises a shepherd's hut which sleeps two and a fabulous bathing wagon. A wood burning stove provides hot water for the bath. Lighting is on the mains and there is a fridge and radiator in the shepherd's hut. Cooking is over an open fire or on gas hobs, with Dutch oven and barbeque grill provided as well as fresh herbs and all the essentials. The site has uninterrupted countryside views tucked just under Haldon Forest Park. This is for adults only. The Orchard Wagon is open all year round.
We are located just five miles from the beach at Dawlish in one direction and Dartmoor National Park in the other and the historic city of Exeter city centre. We are also ideally located for a range of activities including walking, cycling, golf, horse riding, fishing and much more.
