“ I have never before, in my long and eclectic career, been gifted with such an abundance of natural beauty as I experienced filming War Horse on Dartmoor.” Steven Spielberg.

Rewilding Coombeshead

Set in the heart of Devon, Coombeshead offers nature breaks with a big difference!

Coombeshead is wild. The animals roam free in 300 acres of rewilding area, so you will see them in their natural environment, and you can learn about the work to reintroduce lost species to the UK.

We are right in the Heart of Devon, on the edge of Dartmoor with all its superb scenery, walking opportunities and fascinating history, yet just 30 minutes from the surfing beaches of north Cornwall. Coombeshead offers a chance to reconnect to nature in a truly beautiful location.

You can stay in a cosy shepherds’ hut or camp in the meadows.  They offer a range of activities such as ecologist lead guided rewilding walks, where you will see at least some of the habitat creators such as beaver, wild pigs, ponies, mouflon and water buffalo.

The complementary animal encounter activity will introduce you to species being bred for reintroduction such as white storks, wild cats, beavers, water voles and harvest mice, and learn about their vital roles in our natural environment.  The Lynx are examples of the primary predators missing from the ecology of the UK.

In the evening relax round the fire, view free roaming animals from dedicated viewing platforms or take part in organised beaver watching or nature nights.

If you’re lucky you may see one of the barn owls which have returned to feed at Coombeshead hovering over grassland in the early evening.
The customised shepherd huts provide a beautiful and cosy base for your stay with at Rewilding Coombeshead. Each one contains a double bed (bedding and towels provided) that doubles up as a seating area with a table and has a built in log burner.  Each hut has its own fully equipped kitchen attached, and nearby are shared gas heated showers and toilets.

Guests can share a communal area with barbecue fires and pizza oven, or eat in one of the nearby pubs.

Rewilding Coombeshead is located at Upcott Grange Broadwoodwidger, Lifton, Devon.
