Bell Tent (1 at Dreamfields Glamping)
The Owner Says
Imagine sharing an unspoilt and intimate fourteen-acre field in rural Devon with all your favourite people. Waking up as the sun is rising over the sea to the east, and finishing your day with a beautiful sunset to the south-west, with nothing but miles and miles of unspoilt sea views in between.
East Devon is the perfect place this summer due to its microclimate of sheltered coastline, low rainfall and long glorious sunny dates and the Dreamfields site is a wonderful base for exploring the Jurassic Coastline.
Our aim is take all the hard work out of camping, we provide EVERYTHING you require for a luxary camping experience. Inside each five metre bell tent you will find a double bed with a proper mattress, duvet, pillow and bedding along with air beds for additions guests with a bed sheet, rugs, throws and tea and coffee making facilities.
Outside each of the tents we provide tables and haybales, or picnic benches. Every morning wake up to our incredible fresh breakfast served at your chosen time right to your tent.
We have a fantastic communal area offering haybales and plentiful seating, a cosy bar, outdoor cinema, Barista Coffee Machine an splendid firepits, perfect for toasting marshmallows under the stars.
Out toilets are very clean, our washing up area is basic but hygienic and our showers are both very clean and very warm!
If you fancy spending your days relaxing in the field there are lots of games for small kids and big kids alike such as boules, croquet, football, badmington, giant Jenga, table tennis and many more!
About Dreamfields Glamping
Glampers only, adults, children, groups, dogs – yes. Campers, campervans, motorhomes, caravans – no.
There are a choice of beaches within a few miles of site. The closest is Ladram Bay Beach, just a mile and a walk of about 15 minutes on the coast path away. It’s great for swimming and rockpooling and there are boats for hire too – but it can be busy as there’s a caravan park in prime position behind it. A little further, a four-mile drive or a three-mile walk, is another beach at Sidmouth, an elegant Victorian town with plenty of facilities including watersports, shops and places to eat and drink. In the other direction (south west) it’s about three miles to Budleigh Salterton, a charming town with a two-mile pebble beach where the River Otter meets the sea and a further five miles to Exmouth.
Food & Drink
A locally sourced breakfast is served to your bell tent each morning and there’s a fully-stocked bar in the communal area. There’s a regular pizza night and alternative catered options throughout the week. If you fancy eating out, the village of Otterton is a ten-minute walk from site. There’s a pub, The Kings Arms (01395 568416) and a cafe/restaurant at Otterton Mill (01395 567041) which is recommended. There’s also a farm shop within the mill where you can stock up on local goodies. If you’re in Budleigh Salterton, try the fresh crab at The Longboat Cafe (01395 445619) on the seafront (three miles from site) and don’t miss the Devon ice cream from The Creamery (01395 442064) which comes topped with clotted cream. For a highly-recommended lunch or dinner in Sidmouth try the relaxed seaside dining on offer at The Pea Green Boat (01395 514152) or the Pynes Bar and Restaurant at the Bedford Hotel (01395 513047). For something completely different, head for the River Exe Cafe which is on a floating pontoon offshore in the Exe Estuary. You’ll need to get to Exmouth Marina (eight miles from site) and then, excitingly, take a river taxi to reach the restaurant. If you prefer to dine on dry land you might like to try Rockfish Exmouth (01385 272100) instead.

Dreamfields Glamping is located at Dreamfields Glamping, Budleigh Salterton, Devon EX9 7AY
From the main road through the pretty village of Otterton (Fore Street) take Bell Road, signposted towards Ladram Bay. After about 100 metres, turn right on to the narrow Stantway Road. Dreamfields is located on Stantyway Farm after another half a mile.
The closest railway station is at Exmouth (eight miles away). From there you can take a taxi or get the bus towards Sidmouth which stops in Otterton, a mile from site. If you’re walking on the South West Coast Path, the site is 50 metres off the footpath midway between Budleigh Salterton and Sidmouth, south west of Ladram Bay.
