- On a working farm in the north Devon countryside
- A five-minute drive to Saunton Sands
- Free hot showers and well-kept amenities
A five-minute drive to Saunton Sands... then back for lashings of free hot water under the shower and settling down on your chosen pitch to spark up a campfire under the north Devon sky... the peeps at Branton's Fairlinch Camping reckon they do a 'classic camping experience' here, and we reckon they're right.
Set on a working farm in north Devon coastal countryside, Fairlinch has its camping in an open field that's actively farmed throughout the year and left unmarked so that guests can pick their own pitch (take your time; there are some splendid views). It's a friendly place where the team is always on hand to answer questions or dispense info for guests to get the most out of their hol whatever their tastes (beaches for us).
The amenities – powerful electric showers and strong flush loos – are cleanly kept and there's also ice pack freezing or mobile charging if you need it. And – of course – both campfires and barbecues are allowed.
Open from 20/07/2018 to 02/09/2018

Party: 2 adults
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

Take junction 27 off the M5. Turn onto the North Devon Link Road and proceed to Barnstaple. Take a right turn over the new bridge and follow the signs to Braunton. At Braunton, take a right turn onto the B3231 towards Saunton and Croyde. You will find Fairlinch Camping on the right as you leave the outskirts of the village.
To the beach first, natch: the four magnif sandy surfing beaches of Saunton Sands, Putsborough, Woolacombe and Ilfracombe are all under 15 minutes' drive from Fairlinch Camping, and surf schools are around close by too if you haven't yet dipped a toe in the foam.
The two closest villages to Fairlinch are Braunton and Croyde, both with a good choice of shops, pubs and restaurants, and both on the South West Coast Path for hikes among more magnif scenery.
More hikes as well as bike rides are at the nearby Tarka Trail, the 180-mile route taken by the eponymous otter; if you're picking it up at Braunton, the 31-mile section between between Braunton and Meeth is level and car-free so should suit all cycling sorts.
