New Scientist Rewilding Glamping Weekend, Devon

Sustainability and nature are at the heart of everything we do at Ysella, so naturally we were delighted to be asked to collaborate with New Scientist for their Science of Rewilding Weekend at Coombeshead in Devon. One in a series of Discovery Tours hosted by New Scientist’s Graham Lawton, where guests stay onsite to experience the rewilding process.


Coombeshead is a 150-acre farm being rewilded by visionaries with a genuine passion for restoring Britain’s denuded natural landscape. New Scientist host a weekend-long Rewilding experience at Coombeshead where guests witness first hand the project's "rewilding helpers", such as water buffalo, wild boar, mouflon sheep and Exmoor ponies. Along with leading ecology expert talks, delicious organic food and the opportunity to say in our Luxury Bell Tents.

Our Bell Tents offered a sheltered settlement of Glamping style and comfort, enabling guests to stay in the middle of a conservation-in-action project, within miles of untamed landscape. The Bell Tent village made a perfect base for close encounters with magical menagerie and daily walking safari's. With spectacular wilderness views of meadows and woods, Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor as backdrops.


Whether it's an intimate party or large scale accommodation, our proven corporate and event experience sets us apart within the industry. With project planning and site management, New Scientist were able to simply sit back and watch as guests checked in to tents as impressive as the event itself.

Coombeshead is a really really special place. With conservation at it's heart, maximising biodiversity and reintroducing lost species. So we are super proud to represent New Scientist again for summer 2024, giving guests the oppotunity for an up close and personal experience of this special project. If you'd like to attend this amazing tour head over to the New Scientist to secure you place.


We are growing our collaborative relationships with purposeful businesses across the region in order to increase accessibility options in outdoor recreation. Fuelling positive connections with nature. Get in touch if you'd like to collaborate with us!
