Valleyside Escapes is an award-winning glamping site, situated in the historic village of Bickleigh-on-Exe in the heart of Devon. Providing the 'great outdoors experience' but with the comforts and luxuries of home. It is ideally situated for exploring the beautiful county of Devon.
What makes a stay at Valleyside Escapes unique?
Valleyside Escapes is known for a warm welcome, attention to detail and beautiful views. Adult glampers enjoy cooking up a storm on the outside fire pit with one of the renowned paella meal kits. Followed by drinks on the veranda, sipping wine from the local vineyard across the valley, while watching beautiful sunsets. There is also a private river meadow for glampers to enjoy exploring, wild swimming, fishing or launching a kayak! Younger glampers love sleeping in the cabin bed and playing games in the den underneath. Outside they are kept entertained by their very own play park and skittles court. Many hours can also be spent playing hide and seek with friends they have made and a highlight is always toasting marshmallows!
What is there to see and do at Valleyside Escapes?
