- Barbecues and campfires allowed; footpaths and pubs nearby
Head to this north Devon site to pick your own spacious pitch across 12 acres of land with spectacular views over Exmoor, within 30 minutes’ drive of Barnstaple and 25 minutes of Woolacombe.
This is a working farm, so you’ll share views of North Devon’s cliff-carved coastline with a host of farm animals, as well as the occasional wild pony, red deer or bird of prey. Near to sandy coves, woodlands and open moorlands, you'll quite possibly be ooh-ing and ahh-ing all day long. Plus, your dog won’t need to miss out on the countryside sensations either, as they’re welcome on a lead.
Pick a plot among the unmarked pitches stretching over 10 acres of land and come prepped with grill recipes because barbecues are allowed on site. There are firepits provided to keep blazes safe and bins to keep the countryside litter-free. Toilets, showers and drinking water facilities are on site, too. Other perks of staying here include a pets corner where you can get your fluffy fix feeding the alpacas or watching the sheep and alpacas doing their thing and a picnic area where you can break up your day with a tasty packed lunch admiring the scenery.
You may want to keep an eye out for cheeky peacocks and other wandering wildlife as you follow one of several trails direct from the site suited to bicycles or feet. There's a circular route past beaches, or if sand’s on your mind and you want it fast, it’s a 15-minute drive to the nearest sandy coves and surf schools.
After all that walking, you won’t want to go hungry either… it’s easy to grab a takeaway here or fill up at several pubs, restaurants and shops in the neighbouring towns, including a Victorian inn within a five-minute drive of the site.
Open from 26/05/2022 to 03/10/2022

Getting your seaside fix isn’t hard from South Dean Camping. Combe Martin (five minutes’ drive) is a very scenic spot, and all that scenery is extra special when you’re on a rented kayak or paddleboard just off shore. The village is home to the Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park (10 minutes) too, a zoo and prehistoric park for just as an attractive day out.
More coastal spots include the surfing hotspot at Woolacombe Beach (25 minutes), Ilfracombe’s busy harbour (20 minutes) or the Valley of Rocks (20 minutes) for all things coastal walks and dramatic sea views.
For a little of the historic, settle in for the funicular railway in the villages of Lynton and Lynmouth (20 minutes) or potter around the country house and gardens at Arlington Court (15 minutes).
Barnstaple (30 minutes), a gorgeous riverside town, is the go-to place for Tarka Trail bike rides. If it’s a walk you’d rather, Dunkery & Horner Wood National Nature Reserve (40 minutes) has a great loop among the ancient oaks.
