  • Luxury glamping on the north Devon coast
  • Own surf school and activity centre
  • Help feed the animals in the morning

Luxury, glamping, adventure, viewsome vistas and a myriad of animals to coo over: what a fab fusion of features there is at Koa Tree Camp near Bideford.

Frankly it had us at the spectacular views and the luxury Mongolian yurts, but Koa Tree also has its own adventure school – north Devon paddleboarding, kayaking or surfing lessons, anyone? ( says aye.)

The site is set on a working smallholding with a strong stress on conservation and the environment: yurts are in a wildflower meadow that's left to become more diverse year by year, and the Koa crew has its own menagerie of animals (goats, pigs, sheep and chickens) which guests can help feed in the mornings. You could also amble down to the site pond of an evening to catch a glimpse of the geese or the other critters that hang out there...

Koa Tree Camp has a new loo and shower block, a play area, free wifi and a roomy and comfy communal room to lounge about in if it rains. Campfires and barbecues are allowed on site. Oh, and another fab feature of Koa Tree Camp? You can get massages right here too.

Sat Nav: the actual flag point is about 200m past the entrance to Koa Tree Camp so once you’ve turned into Welcombe keep an eye out for us on the left hand side. We’re 300m from the cross roads on the left.

From the north:
From the M5 follow the A361 to Barnstaple, then the A39 to Bideford, continue towards Bude. At Hartland you will pass a series of sharp bends in the road. Carry on until you pass the West Country Inn on your left. After one more sharp right and then left turn you will reach the Welcombe cross roads. Turn right into Welcombe. Koa Tree Camp is the second property on the left after Little Holacombe Farm.

From the south:
Head towards Bude. At Bude follow the A39 north towards Bideford. After the village of Kilkhampton you will pass a field of solar panels and 3 wind turbines. Another mile or so on you will then pass the Devon County sign on your right. Turn left very shortly after towards Welcombe. Koa Tree Camp is the second property on the left after Little Holacombe Farm.

Local attractions

Some of the best surf in the land foams just three miles from Koa Tree Camp: if you've never learned, this is very much the place to start. The expert stand-up paddleboarding and surfing instructors of Koa Tree Surf are at Sandymouth Beach; booking a massage after your session to have back at camp is most recommended.

Koa Tree's local village is Welcombe, spread between a few tiny Devon hamlets by the sea on the Devon/Cornwall border (its beach Welcombe Mouth is tricky to get to but well worth it when you get there). The village has a few craft workshops run by talented types, and artistic views of the South West Coast Path towards Lundy.

Many more beaches are within an easy drive, like Bude 15—20 minutes away, Westward Ho! in 20—25 minutes or Croyde and Woolacombe within a 40-minute drive. And more coast too: if hiking is your holiday thing, you might like to know that the South West Coast Path's Hartland to Bude section has been voted one of the most stunning on all the 630-mile run. More? Hikes and strolls on Exmoor, Bodmin and Dartmoor are all a short drive away.

If you have kids/are kiddish, award-winning days out are nearby at family attractions The Big Sheep and the Milky Way Adventure Park.
