  • "We had a lovely time at Samira."

    The location is so peaceful and as there is low light pollution you get to see the stars at night. There are some great beaches within 20 minutes driving distance and supermarkets less than 15 minutes away. Really enjoyed the firepit and you have all you need for a relaxing break.

  • "Wow! Just wow!"

    Fabulous holiday staying at Semira tent lodge. A peaceful spot in perfect location for exploring the area with stunning scenery. The owners have put a great deal of thought and care in designing and fitting out the safari tent with everything anyone could possibly need for a warm and cosy stay. We enjoyed cooking dinner on the BBQ and eating outside in the lovely summer evenings - perfect. Will definitely be back!

  • "We had a brilliant stay at Semira tent lodge and would highly recommend to everyone."

    It is in a great location, peaceful and tranquil, overlooking rolling fields, however is close enough to reach all surrounding places of interest/tourist spots. The owners were lovely, friendly and welcoming and they had left us fresh milk and wine on arrival. The tent lodge was beautifully decorated, clean and done to a high standard. Bath towels were provided as well as tea, coffee, sugar and hot chocolate, biscuits and porridge. The kitchen was well stocked with all things needed, (pans, utensils, cutlery etc.) The steam shower was an added bonus and was great! The outdoor area, fire pit and bbq was also a great touch that made it. We had a fantastic stay and would recommend to all! Thank you.

  • "Lovely and unusual Semira was more than we expected."

    Beautifully furnished ( safari style ) with a high specification. Bed was super comfy and shower great. Wonderful views. Just my husband and myself + small dog and we found the living space just right.. The small ish site is shared with caravans passing through but was fairly quiet when we were there. The field was very well tended and cared for. There is new Shepherds Hut (High Spec with Hot Tub!) being built a couple of metres away so not sure when occupied if the noise level would have an impact as tents don't generally have soundproofing! Weather was great for our short stay so didn’t experience heavy winds or rain. Plenty of places around the area to eat and visit so it’s well located. Tina the owner has left an info sheet . There was also wine and milk in the fridge which was much appreciated. Overall we thought it great and had a 5* stay ! Thank you

    The location was very convenient for visiting Dartmouth and Salcombe and the view from the lodge's decking area was beautiful.

  • "We stay in the Semira Tent this Easter, Although we were unlucky with the weather due to heavy rain and winds."

    We fully enjoyed our time in the tent and Don and T check up on us to ensure we were ok and warm enough. They were very helpful upon arrival and throughout our stay and made us feel welcome. We hope to return again soon when weather is more appropriate to explore the area more.

The property

Nestled in Devon’s countryside near the village of Blackawton is Semira.

This safari tent benefits from a quirky and stylish interior with an open-plan living space, access to a covered decking with furniture and a gravelled terrace with fire pit, barbecue and picnic bench all making it the perfect setting for families, friends or couples.

Cross the threshold and unwind on the plush sofa after exploring the countryside and watch on as the designated chef whips up a meal in the kitchen equipped with a gas hob, microwave and fridge with ice-box.

Enjoy this at the dining table or if the sun is shining, fire up the barbecue and delight in an alfresco affair at the picnic bench; toast your getaway with a glass of fizz and watch as the sun sets over Devon’s rolling fields.

When sleep calls, get some well-earned rest in either of the double bedrooms, both of which are serviced by a sleek shower room.

Semira lies in the countryside, ideal for those looking to enjoy tranquillity yet close enough to local amenities, stock up on necessities at the local store or head into Blackawton to treat your loved ones to a delicious meal at the George Inn.

The property lies a short drive from Woodlands Family Theme Park home to a variety of indoor and outdoor attractions as well as a farm which showcases meerkats and falcons: a fun day out for the whole family.

Take a scenic drive into the market town of Totnes where you can tour its classical Norman motte and bailey castle, the Totnes Museum and Archives which is set in a restored 16th century home.

There are also a variety of bars and pubs lining the River Dart such as the Steam Packet Inn and the Dartmouth Inn, great for those seeking a more vibrant nightlife.

Spend a sunny day at the coast, choose from Dartmouth with Bayard’s Cove Fort, Dartmouth Castle and Compass Cove beach or Paignton with its beach, pier and famous zoo.

Dartmoor National Park lies nearby and offers a wealth of walking, hiking and cycling opportunities that reward guests with breath-taking views across the countryside.
