LUXURY DEVON GLAMPING POD, SOUTH HAMS.


LUXURY ECOPOD HOLIDAYS NEAR BEACHES, DEVON.



SURROUNDING SUNRIDGE ECOPOD

The South Hams is England's most outstanding area of beauty and you could be in the heart of it!

Minutes away from your ECOPOD in Devon, you will come across beaches to die for. In winter, spring or summer, many beaches remain deserted and unspoilt and are so beautiful, they are often used for film sets. Mothercombe Beach, just five minutes away from the Lodge, was used as a location for Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility, as was nearby Saltram House, a huge Georgian period property, once the largest country seat in Devon. On your doorstep there are miles and miles of country trails along the River Erme and the dramatic south west coast path offers scenery that is literally breathtaking - this isn't a hard sell. The scenery really is breathtaking.

Local villages are teeming with character, charm and delightful shops used by tourists and locals alike. For the gourmet, food could not be fresher or more diverse - locally grown chillies and spices are easily available. There's fresh fish caught daily and the dairy products are so fresh - eggs are still warm sometimes! Whether you want pheasant or quail, sea bass or John Dory, free range home cured bacon or
Devon clotted cream, it's all here, and just minutes away from the Tree House.

Locally there is a wealth of traditional rural life and plenty of leisure activities you can get involved in. The towns and villages boast authentic eighteenth and nineteenth century architecture, and there are hundreds of antique shops adding to the rural charm and the quintessentially English nature of our region. It's not hard to imagine you've been taken back in time, especially on a chilly winter's night, beside the roaring fire in the old village pub, many of which still serve traditional ales of the region. Down alleyways and through archways in some of the older villages like
Dartmouth, you will find craft shops, pastry shops, local jewellers and organic-only cafe's where you can enjoy a splendid Devon cream tea with jam, made from strawberries grown locally. The Inns and restaurants in the region are as sophisticated and accomplished as any you'd find in London - Dartmouth, Kingsbridge, Modbury, Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo, and of course, right on your doorstep, Yealmpton - in each place you will find award winning pubs and restaurants, with sea views and river views In the summer months you can dine outside and in, but all offer the very best of the local produce available, both as traditional Devon fare and of course, the more familiar Mediterranean, Eastern and African dishes we've come to know and love.
