Glamping at Flete
For July and August 2021 we are excited to be adding 6 new bell tents to our choice of places to stay in collaboration with Canopy and Stars. The tents are pitched in a nine-acre field just 5 minutes walk from the secluded Pamflete Beach. They all have the use of three hot showers, two compost loos and a cool kitchen housed in a horsebox, where there are four gas hobs and cool boxes with ice packs for each tent. Each tent will have its own BBQ and fire pit and inside, the tents have been kitted out with double beds, blankets and hot water bottles for comfort, and have a touch of flair in the decoration thanks to the Canopy and Stars decoration team. They make cool and cosy spots to crash after a day of paddling on the water and strolling in the woods.
The Flete Estate is a gorgeous place to spend a few days. You can alternate between seeking out the many sandy beaches for which the tents are named, watching kingfishers hunting over the water, or wandering the carriage drives at your leisure. Twenty minutes away on foot you’ll find superb seafood at The Schoolhouse in Mothecombe and a forty-five minute walk will take you to a lovely local in the village of Holbeton and the Mildmay Colours pub. You could hit the coastal path or paddle board inland on the incoming tide, all the while keeping your eyes out for the ospreys, curlews and storks which have been know to visit the unspoiled environment which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Site of Special Scientific Interest and a Marine Conservation zone.
Photos will be updated as the campsite installation progresses. Watch this space……..
