General

  • Countryside park among 500 acres of woodland and meadows
  • Woodland walks, nature trails, pool, riding centre and mini zoo
  • Five camping fields and five spacious amenities blocks

Life’s little stresses getting you down? Want to stow yourself away for a countryside break where everything is close to your pitch?

Come along to Combe Martin’s Stowford Farm Meadows in north Devon for a bit of de-stressing in a rural setting: the park is a mile from the main road down its own private drive and is a well-placed base from which to explore the best of Devon. You can even get your caravan fitted out or fixed up on site – or pick up another one at the caravan sales: now that’s most certainly de-stressing in style…

Set among 500 acres of Devon woodland and meadows, Stowford Farm Meadows is one of our ‘very large’ sites – but fear not if your tastes tend towards the more solitary, as the park is divided into five separate camping and caravan fields and feels like several small sites rolled into one.

And the overall size means there are heaps of facilities and activities for you to try your hand at, from cantering around on horseback with the help of the on-site riding centre, to driving the kids crazy with your swish moves at fun and crazy golf.

Looking for something a bit quieter? There are marked woodland walks into the wildlife-rich Bittadon Valley, with nature trails starting and finishing on site, or take the kids to play at Petorama, Stowford Farm Meadows’ undercover mini zoo. A heated indoor pool is available for a small extra charge.

All the essentials are well looked after too: there are five spacious amenity blocks, all with laundry facilities attached, disabled facilities, family bathroom and a licensed well-stocked shop with ATM.

For putting feet up or letting hair down, there are two bars (with evening entertainment in peak season), a smart coffee lounge with takeaway, and a licensed restaurant with event nights including hog roast and barbecues. Even the dog will de-stress here, with a friendly welcome and a spacious dog-walking area on site…

Beautiful, clean and tidy site. 04/06/2018

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The clean and tidy washroom and washing up areas.
    The large open plan of the buildings and pitches. Everything was spaced out and you didn't feel too on top of everything.
    Good choice of onsite food and drink establishments.
    Really good to have an onsite shop.
    Onsite horse riding, petting farm and crazy golf.
    Lovely to have wood and field trails on your doorstep.

    Disliked: 

    Very intermittent wifi, phone signals and no chance of getting a TV aerial connected in the motorhome.
    Could have had more kids daytime entertainment or rainy days.

From the manager...

Thanks for your review, we will take your comments on board regarding the entertainment.

  • Liked: 

    The pub, field with play area, Petarama and the beatifically clean and attractive camp site and facilities. The WiFi was almost non-existent but I’m actually really glad as it meant my husband and I hardly used our phones!

    Disliked: 

    The pool was very cold and would’ve been nice if some of the equipment in the side was in the pool rather than saved for clubs.

Leave the M5 at Exit 27, then follow the North Devon link road to Barnstaple, then take the A39 (for Lynton) through Barnstaple town centre. One mile from Barnstaple, turn left onto the B3230. Turn right at the garage at Lynton Cross, onto the A3123.

Stowford Farm Meadows is 1.5 miles on the right, down its own private drive.

Local attractions

The highlights of north Devon are a pebble throw away, with Combe Martin on the doorstep, the famous harbour and seafront of Ilfracombe a few miles away, and Woolacombe and Croyde Bay within a short drive (if you forget your wetsuit, the clever sorts at Stowford sell them in the on-site shop).

Take little monsters to the animatronic dinosaurs, train ride and 250 species of wildlife at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park where they can help feed the lions or have an experience with a bird of prey; they should also have a hoot at the Exmoor Owl and Hawk Centre in nearby Exmoor National Park or getting up and personal with the inhabitants at Barnstaple’s Exmoor Zoo.

Not thrilling enough? Let them see stars at the Milky Way Adventure Park with the tallest rollercoaster in Devon, or whirl about the theme park and descend to the dungeon at Watermouth Castle.

There are plenty of relaxing options for calming frazzled nerves after a day on the rollercoasters: walking across the moors or having a Devon cream tea in one of the villages of Exmoor National Park, sea and lake fishing, golfing, or taking a boat trip to beautiful and peaceful Lundy Island, 12 miles off the coast in the Bristol Channel.

Nocturnally inclined? Bring binoculars or hire a telescope at the National Park centres for a spot of stargazing: Exmoor National Park was the first designated Dark Sky Reserve in Europe.

The cobbled streets of Clovelly are a popular Devon tourist spot, although not for the faint-hearted or unfit: the streets here are so steep that goods are delivered on sledges. The village has over 70 listed buildings and links to the South West Coast Path at its top.

For other day trips, North Devon’s shopping capital Barnstaple has shops to suit all tastes for wallet-emptying; pick up some tasty local produce at the historic Pannier Market.

Or indulge your sweet tooth at South Molton’s Quince Honey Farm, go south to see Devon’s most popular beauty spot Becky Falls or browse around the historical houses of Devon such as the National Trust’s Arlington Court.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (15.6 miles)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (3.7 miles)
  • Heddon Valley (6.8 miles)
