About Reforge Retreat

Suitable For

Glampers, small groups – yes,  dogs – no. 

Nearby

For something different, there is a local archery centre two miles away – Arms of Old (01409 231171) – but most folks are here for the good walking and day-trips to the beach. It takes less than 20 minutes to drive to Dartmoor National Park and only a little longer to reach the north coast, with the likes of Bude, Bideford, Clovelly and Westward Ho! around half an hour by car. There's also a local cycling route ½mile from the site.

Food & Drink

There is a bar open on certain days please check for opening days/times. It's a two minute drive to the local shop in Highampton or continue on to Hatherleigh (five miles away) where there is a supermarket. For pubs, try the excellent Black River Inn (01409 231243), a 10-minute walk away in Black Torrington, or head a half hour further to the Half Moon(01409 231888) in Sheepwash. By car, the George(01837 811755) and The Tally Ho! (01837 810306) in Hatherleigh are both great choices and allow for a worthy pit stop in what is a very pretty little market town.

lovely location and simplicity.

Faith and Jules were lovely hosts who are warm freindly well travelled wordly people..The simplicity and zero ego effect this place had on me will stay with me for a long time. British quirkiness and eccentricity at it's best. No signs saying don't do this or don't do that, just freedom to enjoy this wonderful part of the world at your own pace. Well done Faith and Jules, the only way is up....👍

Beautiful remote location with very welcoming hosts

Two friends and I spent 3 nights in a Belltent at Reforge Retreat, we had a lovely stay and would definetly reccomend to all. The location is nice and remote with peace and quiet and a good view of the stars but not too far down to Dartmoor or up to the North Devon coast. We had a great time seeing the animals and spending time in the 'Reforge Inn', the pub on site with it's eclecticlly decorated interior and great selection of drinks. Amazing hosts who show a real passion for the site, the area, and giving a great experience to the campers.

Just Perfect stunning and peaceful

Just home after our Second Stay at Reforge Retreat. This place is simply stunning, peaceful and complimented with fabulous hosts. The Bell tent was huge and was very comfortable and we can't wait to come back again.

Beautifully peaceful

Me and my wife and children stayed here recently and absolutely loved it. We stayed in a beautiful new bell tent. The camp has great clean facilities, tons of wildlife including dragonflies near the lakes and we even saw a deer in the woods. The owners are very helpful and even pointed out the local produce sellers and recommended a trip to bude which was great. Excellent place in a beautiful location. 5 star's is not enough. Amazing.
