General

  • Glamping on a family-run farm in the north Devon countryside
  • Two miles from the Tarka Trail; half an hour's drive from surf beaches
  • Barbecue area on site; village pub a 10-minute walk away

Canvas and coast and country views, a cracking pub just down the road… and a complete lack of need to set up somewhere to stay. That’s the splendid deal at Canvas and Coast at Whitemoor Farm, a glamping site on a family-run farm a few miles from the north Devon coast.

Roll up here and all will be ready for your arrival in your furnished bell tent, meaning you can get on with the important business of the day. Deciding what that will be is up to you: it might involve firing up the barbecue to grill your dinner while taking in the Taw valley views, or possibly taking a stroll to say hi to the horses, sheep and chickens that have become your new neighbours.

Or of course, you might be just itching to get out and about into the gorgeous surrounds, taking a walk or bike ride down the Tarka Trail, bimbling off to Barnstaple (two miles away) on the bus or hitting the sands and surf of Saunton Sands and Croyde, both of which are about half an hour’s drive away.

Back at base, there’s a bathroom block with hot showers to hose away the seawater, and a borehole that brings forth fresh filtered water to drink. For something rather stronger to sip, wander down to the village of Bishops Tawton, 10 minutes away, for pints and pub food at the thatched 15th-century inn.

    The valley was beautiful and its a small, quant site. Super handy was the little shed with fridge and charging points very close to the pitch. Fresh water from a bore hole.
    Having the tent ready made with a double bed..

    Disliked: 

    Smelly toilets but it didn't really bother me that much. I'd still go back.

Lovely farm site with clean facilities02/08/2020

  • Liked: 

    Spacious and well equipped Bell tent with lots of small extras which made all the difference. Plenty of space for us (2 adults and 2 children), with a double bed and 2 air beds. We particularly liked the fairy lights and kettle to make a cup of tea! Niall was really helpful throughout our stay. The site itself is quite small and quiet but a beautiful spot. Toilets were kept clean and tidy and great addition of an additional barn with fridge / freezers to keep a few cold bits of food.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing! Just be prepared for a short walk to the toilets but not a problem.

    We actually ended up staying at Incledon farm as this was dog friendly (my error at the time of booking). James and the team at canvas and coast were very accommodating and were more than happy to place us at an alternative site which suited our needs better as a family. Incledon farm was a great location and the owners of the farm were very friendly

    Disliked: 

    Toilet/shower facilities were very basic and could have been a bit cleaner.

Nice idea, just not well thought through.29/05/2019

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The tent was spacious and nicely furnished.

    Disliked: 

    Not enough toilets and showers to cope with bank holiday camping, no separate facilities for glampers and was shared with campers. Was not impressed with campers being allowed to pitch tents in front of the glamping tent, blocking the view, and creating a maze of electric hook up wires, and guy ropes. Campers kitchen was a sink only. BBQ supplied but not clean, nor was the gas stove clean. Expensive considering electricity was an added extra, and campers and their tents shared the same facilities.

Local attractions

Let's start with the coast… there are some real stunners of beaches around here, including the surf hotspots of Saunton Sands and Croyde, both of which are about a half-hour drive away. If you’ve so far been singularly unable to stand up on a surfboard, enlist the help of one of the surf schools in either place to give you some tips. Want some less energetic waves? Try the beaches at Westward Ho! (20 minutes) or Woolacombe (35 minutes).

Up for some inland activity? Bring bikes, hire them locally or head out on foot to take in the Tarka Trail, a 32-mile stretch of traffic-free path that passes through Barnstaple and follows the journey of Henry Williamson’s Tarka the Otter. More walks or rides? Head to Exmoor National Park (25 minutes) or climb Codden Hill (45 minutes' walk) for fab views.

Those who are out and about with the small sorts might like to check out The Big Sheep amusement park (20 minutes' drive), the Milky Way Adventure Park (half an hour) and Exmoor Zoo (25 minutes), where you can sign up to cuddle some of the cuter creatures.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (8.9 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (26.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (6.6 miles)
  • Heddon Valley (12.0 miles)
