Vintage Vans – Unplugged Retreat

What would your ideal holiday look like?

A wild and enchanting 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, roam free, awaken to bird song, walk in the woods, swim in the lake?

Getting away from technology and bustle and making a home in vintage show vans in a quiet and private flower meadow surrounded by wildlife and with views towards Dartmoor?

Embercombe is a unique and beautiful place and we’re delighted to announce the arrival of our vintage vans Sid, Dot and Iris in collaboration with Sadie Spikes Curious Cabinet.

Unplugged, tranquil, cosy and full of retro charm, this is a special opportunity for you to enjoy a private retreat at Embercombe.

You are welcome to just enjoy the place as it is, 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.
