The Old Shippon is situated within an historic farm courtyard setting, (with its own private entrance and garden) where some of the buildings are thought to have dated from the medieval period. The land has been farmed on this site for many hundreds, (possibly thousands) of years, the farm being recorded in the Doomesday book.

Your Camping Pod in Devon
Waterproof, cosy and sleeping up to four (in comfort), our Quarry Pods are available all year round. “Camping in Comfort!”
Your Pod is designed to be comfortable – insulated with sheep’s wool and with a special roofing material that cuts down the noise of heavy rain, and the window and lockable French doors which are double glazed to reduce condensation and provide sound insulation.
Quarry pods are probably best described as a wooden tent, simple enough in structure but able to be made into anything you want, whether you fancy transforming it into a luxury pad for the weekend or keeping it sparse for that ‘get away from it all’ week. Whatever the time of year, your Devon camping pod will be properly toasty and cosy against the outside weather, all are fitted with an electric heater.
Depending on your needs, you can have the basic pod to place your own camp bed, sleeping bag etc. or we can provide beds, all pods have mains electricity, lighting and a cool-box. We call this comfortable camping, but some may call it glamping in Devon, or luxury camping.
