General

  • Back to nature stays on a family-friendly site with campfires allowed
  • A 10-minute drive from Woolacombe and Ilfracombe beaches
  • In scenic countryside on an eight-acre smallholding

Devon beaches? Sorted. Strawfields is a small countryside site set on an eight-acre smallholding close to Woolacombe beach and Ilfracombe's Tunnels, a five-minute drive from the well-stocked village shop and friendly local pub of West Down.

This is a place for back to nature stays with open fires and spacious pitches separated by long grass: there's a stream and three fields to explore, and a public footpath running directly behind the site if you fancy the mile's scenic walk into West Down village, where there's a pub and small general store.

There's heaps to do in the immediate local area, with a surf school nearby and canoeing/kayaking, watersports, sailing, fishing, horse riding, climbing, mountain biking and more all available. Strawfields is also close to the sandy beaches, coves and rockpools of Ilfracombe and Woolacombe where you can take long beach walks or go bodyboarding, dune sledging and coasteering.

Amenities include toilets and hot showers, as well as a drying room and a washing-up area with a view.

    We stayed in one of the huts, which was lovely. Small but comfortable with a great outdoor area for a campfire and to cook etc.

    The showers and toilets were well kept too with good cleaning facilities.

    Good, quiet location too and the owners were very accommodating. Great stay!

    Like the rustic feel but convenience of amenities. The wheelbarrows for moving things to and from cars is a nice touch.

    Very quiet location lovely views and my children liked the slide into the stream. Close to Ilfracombe and less than 30 mins from Croyde and Woolacomb4 beaches

    Disliked: 

    Not a big deal but you can't park car by your tent so took quite a few journeys to unload car and take to pitch site
    Also one shower of the 2 was cold. If site is busy maybe a wait for a shower I would have thought

    A very clean, tidy and well maintained campsite. The shower and toilet block is rustic, but it’s all really well cared for. Beautiful big camping pitches, separated by long grass. My children loved playing with their new friends in the secure field. It all felt very safe. Alex and her family are very helpful and friendly. Their pizza night was great. A really lovely set up, perfect for my young family. Thank you Strawfields.

Directions

Local attractions

Surf's up almost everywhere round here, and even when it isn't, an abundance of beaches broad and sandy, rocky and secluded, safe and wild are all around: it's a 10-minute trip from the site to Woolacombe Sands and Tunnels beaches, and around 20 minutes to Lee Bay and Croyde Bay.

If you prefer exploring on foot or bike, you're well placed to join the Tarka Trail, a 32-mile nature route passing through the locations in Henry Williamson's famed novel, or the 105-mile Dartmoor-to-Plymouth challenge of the Devon Coast-to-Coast. Head down into Bideford (half an hour) and catch a boat out to Lundy Island, for spotting seals and puffins and walking through a protected Atlantic wilderness.

For further encounters with nature, a mix of live and animated beasts is at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (15 minutes) and a pair of rare black leopards are among the attractions at Exmoor Zoo (20 minutes). Half an hour away, The Big Sheep is perhaps the world's only sheep-themed amusement and farm park, while the Milky Way (45 minutes) combines thrill rides and slides with birds of prey shows. The North Devon AquaPark and WakePark is right next door to the Milky Way, for all manner of watery antics at speed.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (15.4 miles)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (5.0 miles)
  • Heddon Valley (8.1 miles)
