Setting up camp

General

  • Peaceful site on a working farm 15 minutes' drive from Barnstaple
  • Part of the 2,700-acre National Trust Arlington estate
  • Exmoor National Park and Devon beaches within half an hour's drive

South Town Farm is a small and friendly north Devon site is on a 200-acre working farm, part of the spectacular 2,700-acre National Trust Arlington estate and its miles of footpaths through woods and farmland.

Pitches are spread across two roomy fields, with plenty of space for relaxation or running about. This is a site for families who want to play games, roam around nature spotting, build campfires and stargaze; it's all safe and secure too, as the pitches are kept car free; the only wheels allowed on this patch are attached to the wheelbarrows used for transporting your kit.

It’s highly likely that you’ll want to utilise some of this space for a cookout, and you’re most welcome to do so if you bring your own barbecue or firepit (no open fires, thanks, and only wood purchased on site for the firepits). As it's an off-grid site, you’ll want to bring a torch along too, to avoid late-night stumbles as you make your way to the compost toilets.

As well as being a good spot for local wanders, South Town Farm’s handily placed for roaming the Exmoor National Park and the beaches of the Devon coast. Barnstaple, 15 minutes away, is the place for your town amenities, including supermarkets, restaurants and pubs serving food; even closer to home, a farm shop is within five minutes' drive.

Please note

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

    fantastic campsite. Beautiful location, lovely and quiet. Good facilities and really lovely hosts. Lovely walks straight from the campsite and plenty of activities within a drive for the kids such as beaches, Dinosaur Park etc. We were caught in storm Francis with 50mph winds - Murry and Dani constantly checked on us offered extra pegs and even their lounge if needed! We were given a talk on the farm and met some of the sheep which the kids loved.

    The site is wonderfully peaceful and incredibly picturesque. Pitches are all large and very well spaced out. Dani and Murray were very welcoming and friendly. The facilities were clean and tidy. There is an abundance of fantastic countryside walks and hikes right on the doorstep, as well as some fantastic places to eat and drink. It was a lovely stay and I'd highly recommend!

Local attractions

As you’re settled on the Arlington estate, you’ll want to explore your domain a little – as well as a lengthy network of footpaths and adventure play trails, there’s also a splendid stately home that houses the National Trust Carriage Museum. If that’s fired you up for more walks, Heddon Valley (20 minutes’ drive) is popular for its sea views, and there are routes galore around the Exmoor National Park (15 minutes). Horse riding, kayaking, coasteering and heaps more antics can be had around the park too.

Away from Exmoor, the traffic-free Tarka Trail, running from Barnstaple, is a good bet for a bike ride, or you could take your rods for a day of fishing at Wistland Pound Reservoir or Bratton Water (both about five minutes away by car). Surfers or surf wannabes can hit the beaches and surf schools of Saunton Sands and Woolacombe with a drive of half an hour or so.

After watching animal antics on the farm, take a look at the more exotic creatures over at Exmoor Zoo, 10 minutes away and home to all sorts of beasties from around the globe.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (14.5 miles)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (1.3 miles)
  • Heddon Valley (6.5 miles)
