Longlands Glamping

UK England South West England Devon

Longlands Farm, Coulsworthy, Combe Martin, North Devon EX34 0PD

Luxury safari tent glamping in a class all of its own, set in a North Devon valley with breathtaking views all the way to the coast

Armed with little more than a collection of Cool Camping guidebooks and their cherished 1965 Splittie, Bella, Bugsie and the kids hit the open road with a view to permanently escaping the hustle and bustle of London. Over the course of three years, the family travelled up to the Outer Hebrides (twice!), down to Devon, took weekend trips to the New Forest, and enjoyed a wonderful summer travelling through France, all the while making notes describing what made each site special and contemplating the idea of opening their very own glamping getaway.

When the family decided to leave London in November 2010, they began looking for a location with some very specific requirements: conveniently close to the sea (to be able to sneak in a lunchtime surf!), breathtaking views and plenty of space to create the ultimate rural retreat. Months passed before Bella and Bugsie locked eyes on a delightful destination on the western border of Exmoor, and only five minutes from the picturesque coastal village of Combe Martin. In July 2012, that destination became Longlands – and we think you’ll love it...

The accommodation at Longlands is as equally picturesque as its natural surroundings. Five thoughtfully positioned safari tents (sleeping six) come furnished with vintage leather sofas, luxurious linen, and a blanket box filled with family-friendly games. At the heart of each identical lodge is a fully-equipped kitchen with a wood-burning stove, keeping the cosy interior warm in all weathers whilst also providing a means of cooking. Not finished there, each country-inspired abode has its very own shower room (and separate en-suite), with flushing loo and basin, plus a wide range of natural aromatherapy products. Skip down the path to the luxury hot tub area, too, and you'll truly learn the meaning of relaxation.

After spending a memorable day exploring North Devon and its many delights, Longlands is a comforting enclave to return to each night. Bella and Bugsie have done their hosting homework, pre-empting every need. The ‘Longlands Larder’ is testimony to that, with hard-to-resist, local produce (milk, jam, chutney and cheese) stocked 24-hours a day. Guests can also dine on their private barbecue, overlooking the sheltered valley and rolling hills all the way to the sea. Allow your days to float by effortlessly, whilst enjoying the simplicity of field living – albeit in a luxury canvas lodge.
