Luxury Glamping at Battisborough House, South Devon

Battisborough Glamping is set in a stunning location designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, directly overlooking the sea.

The house was built in 1898 for the Fox family, Plymouth business owners who farmed at South Battisborough Farm before the land was amalgamated into the adjoining Flete Estate. For several years from the 1950’s, Battisborough House was run as a boarding school closely modelled on the famous Scottish school, Gordonstoun. In 1987 it became a residential centre set up and managed by Hall Grove School in Surrey.

Our glamping site lies within six acres of private gardens on a broad terrace commanding exceptionally fine sea views. Battisborough Glamping is very well resourced. It includes use of a large indoor playroom, known as ‘The Old Pottery’, with its kitchenette, shower and toilet room. Within an attractive sheltered woodland there is a communal fire pit. Logs are available for purchase on site. Use of the hard tennis court is permitted (though shared with guests of the house). There is access via a private right of way to the coastal path, to Mothecombe Beach and to several isolated coves. South Battisborough Farm, the home of the celebrated Surfing Cow Ice Cream, is just a short walk away. Visitors to the farm are most welcome and can enjoy a delicious ice cream (made on the farm from milk from its own cows) seated at a picnic table overlooking the sea.

Guests are reminded that the surrounding fields belong to a working farm; care must always be taken to follow all aspects of the Country Code and to show consideration and respect to the neighbours.

Battisborough Glamping is within a quite exceptional setting providing our glampers with privileged access to one of the most beautiful stretches of coastline in the country. Guests will not be disappointed.

A secondary site, St Clements, is also available in a private secluded garden adjoining South Battisborough Farm.

Bell Tent and Facilities


Choose a spacious and fully furnished bell tent for a comfortable camping experience. Our beautiful tents offer full size beds with sumptuous sprung mattresses resting on either rustic wood or antique iron bedsteads. With duck down duvets and crisp cotton sheets you will wake up feeling as if you are in a luxury hotel.

For family groups, two single beds can be added on request with all bed linen provided. The tents have been carefully furnished including a full-length mirror, clothing rails, bedside tables with reading hurricane led lamps, plus a vintage storage trunk for all those extra things you bring. Each tent has its own individual charm, decorated with rugs, lanterns, bunting and fairy lights.

If you would like us to pitch a separate bell tent at a reduced cost for the children, we are happy to accommodate. We aim to make wonderful memories for every visitor.
