This is perfect for getting away and leaving behind the technology we're all used to. It creates real family bonding, making your own fun and all mucking in together. We brought our three children and really saw a different side to them. Added to this, the tents are very well equipped and the owners, Ray and Pauline, very welcoming and helpful. We had a fantastic time and recommend this place to all

The Owner Says

Owl Valley is located about 1 mile from Bideford North Devon. Full of bird song, flowers and places to explore it is a peaceful and secluded valley away from the pressures of everyday life. It even has its own stream and a pond full of wildlife. After moving to this tranquil, beautiful valley in 2015, owners Pauline and Ray decided they would like to share their valley with other like minded souls and 'Owl Valley glamping' was born. Our beautiful, if a little eclectic, Cabin Owlet and 3 x 5 metre Bell tents are named after some of our resident Owls: Barn, Tawny (30 metres apart) and the secluded Long eared.

Our favourite spot

Glamping only. Groups considered by request. No dogs.

The local area

One mile away, Bideford is the closest town, with independent shops and restaurants but it's the beaches beyond that most folks come here for. Famous Westward Ho!, Braunton Burrows, Croyde, Woolacombe and Bude are all popular sand and surf spots, while the pretty harbour town of Clovelly (01237 431781) is hugely popular for a non-beach related stroll. Take a boat out to Lundy Island (01271 863636) for the day or stay inland and cycle the famous Tarka Trail – miles upon miles of traffic-free cycle path passing close to the site and directly through Bideford.

Best local places to eat and drink

An honesty shop at the campsite sells milk, bread, beans and eggs – plus logs for the campfire and BBQ coals. There's also a great selection of nearby pubs. The Crealock Arms (01237 477065) is the closest – approximately one mile away (uphill going, downhill back!), while The Coach & Horses (01237 451214) in Hands Cross is also worth a visit, as is the nearby Thatched Inn (01237 471321) in Abbotsham.

Why stay with us?

Bell tents have a double futon bed (bedding included) and single fold-out beds, a dining table and chairs, cooking equipment, cutlery and crockery, a BBQ, cool box and a campfire bowl (logs provided onsite). The off-grid Owlet Cabin (sleeps 5) has a double-bed (with bedding) and king-sized mezzanine (without), plus a chase lounge an extra child can sleep on. It has a wood-burner (and initial supply of logs), fairly lights, lanterns and an outside sun-deck with a BBQ, plus a covered kitchen with a 2-ring gas burner, sink with cold water cooking equipment (including coolbox) and crockery. Each unit has its own private compost toilet with sink, eco shower, eco liquid soap and shampoo and an outside fresh water tap. The 'parliament' recreation room has a porch with gas hobs, washing up facilities, table and chairs, pot bellied log burner, books, board games, dart board and a mini billiards table. There's also a kettle pizza BBQ in the 'beater's hut'. Further up in the woods you'll also find the campfire site and there's a small pond for dipping and a stream for dam building.
