Autism Friendly Glamping in Devon

Leafy Fields Glamping in Devon was the first glamping site to achieve the National Autistic Society’s Autism Friendly Award in 2017. In 2018 they achieved the award for a second year recognising their efforts to create an autism friendly glamping experience in Devon.

Leafy Fields Glamping is run by Andrew and his wife Dannie, together with their three young children. There are two safari tents to hire and new for 2019 is their Crivens Shepherd’s Hut. The site is located near the pretty village of Ashill, next to a working dairy farm.

Andrew comments, “We have tried to make our glamping site autism friendly, creating a wonderful holiday environment for families with young children and those with autism like ours. We appreciate that Autism is different for each individual and are happy to adapt and help were we can to enable your whole family to have a truly relaxing time.”

There is a sensory play room available for guests, providing a place to chill and relax. There is a climbing frame for the kids to play on and there are also four miniature horses that live onsite. You can even organise a grooming session with the horses during your stay.
