Cheglinch Camping is a pop-up, gently sloping, green field site for wild camping in rural north Devon. Guests can pitch up in unspoiled countryside near a working farm with breathtaking views.
The site opens in summer, but then reverts back to its agricultural use. It's in a quiet isolated location, yet easily accessible as it's within half a mile of the A361 and the village of West Down with its well-stocked community shop and pub. The spectacular north Devon beaches are a short drive away.
The pitches are extremely generously sized but unmarked so you can pick your own location. There's plenty of room all around so children have open space to run and play, and so that you can take in the stunning views of north Devon while watching livestock grazing nearby. The site is predominantly a peaceful place interrupted only by the odd moo or bleat: however, as it's deep in countryside, there may be the odd day where tractors can be seen and heard working nearby.
Barbecues are allowed as long as they are kept off the ground, or you can hire one of the firepits. Wood is available to buy on site.
As it's wild camping in a rural location, facilities are basic: there's a mains water tap providing fresh water, a washing-up sink with cold water and a clean portable toilet. Please note that the site doesn't have showers: guests are welcome to bring their own portable ones.
Cheglinch Camping rotates between two fields, both with views over North Devon.

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.

Excellent well run weather was bad but still a great stay
From the manager...
Thank you for your comments. We are already looking into more toilets, and possibly shower facilities, for next year as we have realised that this is an area that would benefit from improvement.
From the manager...
We weren't aware of the barking issue. We will look into it, try to locate the source and hopefully rectify it for the future.
