Embercombe Experience Weeks

What would your ideal holiday look like?

A wild place to unplug and immerse yourself in spectacular nature in a beautiful 50 acre valley surrounded by rolling hills on the edge of Dartmoor?

Finding a place where you can meet new friends, let your children explore, sit around a fire, awaken to bird song, walk the woods and meadows, swim in the lake?

Embercombe is a unique and beautiful place.

We are offering three weeks of village glamping in our 10 yurts. 

This is space for you to just enjoy the place or use it as a base for exploring Dartmoor, the beautiful Devon coast or the neighbouring city of Exeter. Haldon Forest Park with walking, cycling and Go Ape is next door.
