Welcome to The Orchard Retreat!

We are a family (and dog) friendly holiday site set amongst some of the most glorious countryside in Devon.

The Orchard Retreat offers three locally handcrafted yurts dotted around a 4 acre apple orchard, surrounded by fields and streams, all within a short stroll of their own private bathroom and further kitchen facilities. The yurts provide off-grid living at its best with no electricity and as the nights draw in there are lanterns, torches, candles and solar lighting to guide you.

The yurts are stylishly furnished with ultimate luxury in mind. Each one comfortably sleeps up to 4 people, with a wood burning stove and warm rugs so that anyone from a couple, to a friends and family group, can relax and unwind at The Orchard Retreat.

In addition to our yurts and near the main farmhouse we have two beautiful sympathetically renovated holiday cottages: The Cider Barn which sleeps 6 and Apple Tree Cottage which sleeps 4.

“…off-grid living at its best…”

Whether you want to explore our 15 acres of land, make use of the cob pizza oven, sit around the fire pit, have a picnic in the meadow, wander through the woods, play in the streams or use Wi-Fi and play games in The Gallery, The Orchard Retreat really is your escape from the stresses of daily life.  For that extra special break, enjoy a massage with our mobile masseuse or for groups of 6 people or more, have a lovely 3 course feast cooked and served in The Gallery, by our local supper club! We also have a micro shop selling a few locally made and sourced goodies.

We are located just next door to Thornes Farm Shop with its local produce and in-house café, and just an easy drive to the coast and the many beautiful sights of Devon, making The Orchard Retreat a fantastic location for exploring the region.

The Orchard Retreat is a family run business and we live in the main farmhouse here at East Forde Farm. Nick, Vicky, Maddy and Moon-dog look forward to welcoming you here soon!
