Embercombe talk to us about connecting with nature, staying in vintage vans and visiting their beautiful valley on the edge of Dartmoor.
Imagine a lost world … a place where the flow of nature knows no bounds, where animals roam freely in a sound-bath of birdsong. This is a place where the wild things are. Does such a place still exist?
Embercombe is a beautiful valley in the mid-place between Exeter and the wild moor. People have been coming to us for 20 years to connect with nature and find their purpose, to make friends and recharge themselves, to experience their wilder side.
We have introduced new courses for 2019, to add to the much loved programmes that have been running here for many years and helped people of all ages to find their purpose, and take action in the world … The Journey, Catalyst, Speaking Out.
But Embercombe is a place to discover not only what you can DO to make a difference in the world, but who you can BE. So with this in mind, we are now really excited to announce our new ‘unplugged’ village glamping and vintage van retreats for this summer. Come and just be here.
Our three vintage vans, Sid, Dot and Iris are waiting in the wild-flower meadow, with views to Haytor and wild moor in the distance, to welcome those wanting a back-to-nature retreat. We’ve also opened up our yurt village, for specific weeks over July and August so you can enjoy Embercombe in a family-friendly valley – wild swim in the lake, meet friends around the fire and wake up to birdsong.
