The Hen’s Dens - Dog Friendly Glamping In Higher Gabwell, Devon


The Hen’s Dens are our timber tent camping / glamping pods.

The Dens are our original chicken sheds built by us at the start of our organic laying hens enterprise, and which became redundant as we have expanded the business.

A few years ago we had a light bulb moment the thought ‘why don’t we turn them into Timber Tents’, and with the support of the planning authority, we set out on the task of converting them.

The Dens have been carefully set in a quiet spot amongst our cob nut trees and adjoining an orchard of organic desert apples trees. To make room we dug up and transplanted some nut trees and planted many dozens of new trees and hedging plants. After many months of hard work, hopefully you will agree, we have created an attractive and appealing, unique, small site to provide an enjoyable place to stay.

Each Den has its own private lockable bathroom / welfare room (as described below), complete with shower, toilet and wash basin plus welfare area. You have your bathroom for the duration of your stay. It is key locked, so you can leave all of your personal washing and cooking gear and possessions within it (no dragging to and fro).

    Benches to sit out in the field and take in the view and sunset -  Space to play in amongst the trees.
