A fantastic addition to an already brilliant campsite

Having stayed as a camper many times, we were excited to experience the Yurt for the first time - and we were NOT disappointed! It's a really lovely place to stay - we had two kids with us, but it would be even nicer as a romantic get-away. The new log-fired hot tub is amazing, the kitchen and toilet are a real luxury and the location is faultless. Highly recommended!!

Lovely setting

We stayed in the yurt and thoroughly recommend it. Comfortable beds and gorgeously cosy with the log burner going. Really lovely with the animals close by.

Beautiful laid back glamping

Nicky was really accommodating for our visit. We hired the yurt and the huts and others joined us in tents, campers and caravans and it was perfect for the occasion. Family friendly fun in beautiful surroundings. All accommodations more than up to scratch and lovely new shower block. Plenty of space for bbqs, fires etc. Plenty of opportunity to feed animals/ collect eggs if you speak to owners although we didn’t make the most of it as ran out of time!

An amazing Easter Mini Break!!!!

We've just recently stayed in the Drover's Hut, and it was perfect!! You really are part of the farm. Nicky, Andy and Will, were lovely and couldn't do enough for us. The views are breathtaking and we literally shared a field with the sheep and their beautiful lambs. The Drover's Hut has a brand new bathroom, which is amazing and the main shower and toilet block is clean and lovely and hot!! There's plenty of beautiful places to visit locally, but we loved hanging out at the hut with the woodburner roaring and taking a dip in the hot tub. We wish we had longer, but will definitely be returning!!!

Getting There

Head down the A39 in North Devon, setting the sat nav for EX31 4SH. Keep the speed down, because it’s easy to miss the farm’s  sign when you’re close.
