General

  • Small and friendly family-run farm between Ilfracombe and Woolacombe
  • Direct access to bridle path linking miles of public footpaths
  • Play area, free hot showers and family shower room

Small, friendly, family run and cracking sea/countryside views are among the features of Sunnymead Farm on the north Devon coast: it's between Ilfracombe and Woolacombe too so you can have sand among your toes or be fishing from the harbour within about ten minutes. Combe Martin and Exmoor beyond it are about 15—20 minutes away.

The Sunnymead owners have set the pitch prices to what they feel is reasonable for the area and the location, and have laid pitches out around the edge of two fields giving each plenty of space and leaving the centre of each field free for play.

Sunnymead Farm has a play area, free hot showers, a family shower room and recycling facilities. Reception sells hot and cold drinks, snacks and basic provisions.

Going off site, the farm has direct access to a bridle path which links to miles of public footpaths (it can get mucky, so bring your wellies), and is on a public bus route which will stop on request at the site entrance. Tourist info and details on local attractions are available on site.

Basic site but not one we would return to 20/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom zoejack3123 Mobile phone icon Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Large pitch size, fairly flat with not much of a slope, free push button showers which were a decent size and temperature could be changed, play area for kids up to 12

    Disliked: 

    The smell in the toilets/ dishwashing areas was very over powering, the cleanliness of facilities,no designated area for dogs to go to do their business so people were letting their dog's poo near the kids play area where they were all playing!! No wifi

From the manager...

We are so pleased to hear you will not be staying with us again. Immediately when you booked, we e-mailed you to advise that we could not offer you a pitch near to the facilities as you had requested on the booking form and explained that your pitch was one of the furthest from the facilities, we offered for you to be able to cancel your booking with us or change your dates slightly at no additional charge, to go on a pitch near the facilities, your response “it's fine I'm sure we will manage for a few days”. Yet when you checked in you complained about the location of your pitch, Number 23 is a large corner pitch with sea views! There is no Wifi there and we do not advertise otherwise.
The facilities are cleaned 4 times a day, but unfortunately they are only as clean as the last person to use them, which is beyond our control.
We are a dog friendly site, we actively encourage dogs as we all love them, at checking in all dog owners are informed of where they are able to walk their dogs and we have had no problems with our dog owners, they are most respectful of our requests to pick up after them.

Great location and staff with level pitches and good clean facilities. 15/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Michael G. Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We had a great time at Sunnymead. The owners were extremely helpful after I had lost my phone as well as giving us tips on the best places to eat and visit. The location is great for shopping at Tesco, Barnstaple and close to a number of sandy beaches. Nice clean showers and wash rooms and also two sinks for washing the dishes etc. Our welcome comity was a horse and a fine Ass. We missed out on the clay pigeon shooting next door but will be doing that on our next visit.

    Disliked: 

    Only issue was the road just over the hedge but that wasn't overly busy and you hardly notice it.

Nice site, approachable staff but some updating would be of benefit. 13/08/2017

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    the close proximity to all the main beaches and local attractions, good size pitches and the horse and donkey were of great interest.

    Disliked: 

    The family shower room being in with the washing up area,also the two toilets that are sited alongside the washing up sinks with no extraction or windows to clear the smell before it entered the washing up area.
    Although facilities were clean and tidy they were not of the same standard experienced at other sites visited during our holidays charging the same amount of money.

From the manager...

Many thanks for taking to time to write a review, our facilities are cleaned 4 times a day, but unfortunately they are only as clean as the last person to use them, which is beyond our control. Our dishwashing area offers free hot water, two large sinks and the opportunity to stay warm and dry whilst doing the dishes, which is much appreciated by the vast majority of our guests.

    The site is very level- no sleeping on a hill! There are also lovely views.
    Dogs very welcome and there is a space set aside for walkies.
    Stafff were very helpful and friendly.
    Washing up room is well maintained and in an building.

    Disliked: 

    There is a busy road next to the site which can be quite loud.
    Facilities could have been cleaner.

From the manager...

Many thanks for taking to time to write a review, it is very much appreciated, we are sorry you felt our facilities could have been cleaner, we clean them ourselves 4 times a day, but unfortunately they are only as clean as the last person to use them, which is beyond our control, as is the road which is the main road B3343 into Woolacombe.

Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches 25/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Rosemary S. Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Flat pitches, well groomed. All facilities close by. Toilets and showers etc very clean. Help given when asked for.

    Disliked: 

    We couldn't empty grey water as a bucket needs to be put under the motorhome and there was not enough space under the motorhome to fill it. Hard standings would have been nice.

From the manager...

Many thanks for taking to time to write a review, it is very much appreciated and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, we do have pitches with hard standings that were available and some of these have a gray waste drain on them, please book one of these for your next stay and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Basic, Noisy but Cheap! 24/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Susan A. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    When the weather is fine, the view across to Wales and the Brecon Beacons is simply breath taking, as are the sunsets over the sea. The camp site owners were lovely, very friendly. The site's location is good for driving out to the prettier parts of the coast.

    Disliked: 

    The noise! The road running next to the camp site is fast and busy and the tyre roar from passing traffic is very intrusive. It's like listening to the roar of jet engines and it goes on well into the night, too.
    The facilities are very basic but acceptably clean, if a little 'tired'.
    Options for leaving the campsite on foot are rather limited although I have read of people walking out to Lee Bay but that is not exactly on the door step.

From the manager...

We are very disappointed by this review as we had several conversations with your partner who told us how clean and tidy the site was and how much he was enjoying his stay. However, he did mention that you were not enjoying it so much as the weather could have been better and you like to be able to walk to shops and pubs from campsites, although you are not able to walk far enough to enjoy the miles of footpaths accessible for the bridlepath right out of our back gate. We are really amazed by your hearing ability; the only jets we have ever heard are overhead! The road is the main Woolacombe road and is the same road that gave you that easy access to drive out.

Amazingly friendly and helpful campsite with an excellent view 01/07/2017

  • Liked: 

    Super friendly and helpful,very good facilities, not far from Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Lee (walking distance) with excellent trails to walk. Small shop on site for essentials came in handy (fairly priced) and the views are awesome. The road isn't very noisy at night which was good and there is plenty of field space for bring dogs and a well equiped playground for children. We also loved the donkey and horse on site (very friendly).

    Disliked: 

    Only footpath to the coast without following the busy road was home to a rather unfriendly dog that frankly terrified me and my friend. The gates to the property were open so the dog could get out. We had to literaly run away from it many times. Spoke to manager about it and he said he would follow it up (June 2017).

Directions


From Mullacott Cross roundabout take the main road to Woolacombe the B3343. We are 3/4 mile down the B3343 on the right hand side, next entrance after Charter Vets.

From Mullacott Cross roundabout continue for 3/4 mile. Our entrance will be opposite the Highways guest house on your right-hand side.

Local attractions

The surfing of Woolacombe and the Victorian town of Ilfracombe are both three miles from Sunnymead Farm, as are the famed Tunnels Beaches, the hand-carved tunnels leading to sheltered coves and a Victorian bathing pool (you can get married at the Tunnels these days, so drop a holiday hint if you think that'd be your thing).

Combe Martin Dinosaur Park should whet the appetite for your next south-west England trip (to the Jurassic Coast) and as it's the 'gateway to Exmoor', all sorts of outdoorsy activities lie just ahead. Award-winning conservation centre Exmoor Zoo has over 200 species of animals, birds and reptiles.

Watermouth Family Theme Park and Castle just outside Ilfracombe has a labyrinth, rides and play areas in a rather splendid setting overlooking Watermouth Cove; buy a return ticket to come back again for a tiny price throughout the season.

And if you're feeling active, the amount of things you could get busy at in Devon are too many to list, but could include surfing, horse riding, swimming, tennis, golf, quad biking, ten-pin bowling and cycling - the Route 27 cycle track is close by.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (16.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (7.4 miles)
  • Heddon Valley (9.8 miles)
