General

  • Back to basics woodland site in scenic north Devon
  • In the Lee valley, a 15-minute walk from the coast
  • Wildlife haven over 10 acres: look out for deer, foxes and badgers

Craving some good old-fashioned camping, with nothing but a bit of canvas over your head, an open fire to cook on and the sounds of wildlife to keep you company? Pick up your pack and head to Yomer Wood Camping, a back to basics site a couple of minutes’ drive (10 minutes’ walk) from the scenic coastal village of Lee in north Devon.

Don’t worry about soothing stays being interrupted by other guests either: there are 10 acres here, and running into the neighbours is far less likely than encountering a badger, fox or deer... When (if?) you feel the need to return to the outside world, the site’s about 15 minutes’ walk from the Devon coast, which is handy for the 630-mile South West Coast Path and the sheltered cove at Lee Bay, and is in the Lee Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. (Time visits just right to find out why the locals call it Fuschia valley…)

Yomer Wood is no-frills at its finest: there’s no electricity and certainly no wifi, so you can stay nicely sheltered from social media or other digital distractions. Streams and a pond are to hand for your morning ablutions; there's a compost toilet for your calls of nature, and a rainwater-supplied pot washing area is at your convenience for the scrubbing of saucepans.

And for the sizzling of sausages? Campfires are – but of course – fully approved of here.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Facilities at the site are minimal, restricted to a compost loo and a stream for washing.

Although there’s parking by the pub and the beach in Lee, there’s no parking next to the site so pack light – you’ll need to carry your tent with you.

Great pitch for a quiet escape20/07/2020

    I really liked how isolated and quiet this campsite was. It had everything I needed! I also loved how close to nature I was. Most morning I woke up to deer tracks going through the site and an inquisitive mole kept me company most the stay. The village was nearby with a lovely pub and some great walks along the coastal paths to Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.

Idilic secret campsite for wild campers.24/08/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomNatasha O.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • Liked: 

    We absolutely loved our stay here, staying in the middle of unspoilt woodland surrounded by nature with the odd wild animal was incredible. Local farm was friendly and let us get up close with the farm animals) big and small), they also had a little shop which provided essential. Wild showering’ was an experience that wakes you up like no other ( no sarcasm intended). Fire allowed, with cheap wood for sale but we were also permitted to pick up wood from the grounds. The hosts were friendly helpful but not overbaring. There is relatively short walk from the road to the site, but it’s completely worth it, as you get rewarded with the most idilic waterside campsite!

    Beautiful woodland in which to experience wild camping. Enjoyed the chance to cook on an open fire with the children and teach them some survival skills. Kate and family were friendly and accommodating. They ensured we were able to get the experience we were looking for. Facilities were perfect for wild camping. We would highly recommend.

  • The Hideout cabin
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Absoloutley incredible. Kate and Angus are amazing, we stayed an extra night, it is an absolute dream I didn't want to leave. fire facilities to cook and keep warm didn't want for anything whilst out in the woods. Very easy to find but not for the elderly as there is a large hill to climb everytime you go back home. The areas around are fantastic combe Martin Croyde broadsands is a must go as well as ilfracombe and woolacombe and we even followed a public footpath to end up at a farm shop that cooks pizzas! I could go on forever but if you are hesitant about booking just do it you'll have the best time ever ❤️

    Found this place to be amazing - really peaceful...Spent time on site, sat in the woods, built a fire...the shower was brilliant! Proper outdoor living - and great for the practice of 'cold water' swimming (although I only showered and didnt swim in it) Owners seemed friendly and made sure I got to where I pitched my tent alright. Little village of Lee was also lovely, really nice rock climbing across the beach...sampling the local pub food - again, really nice Plowmans! I went to have some quiet time on my own with my book and got that and more - loved it - and felt amazingly safe!!

    Disliked: 

    Wasnt mad keen on the hill walk to get to the campsite - carrying all possessiona on my own - was hard work, but lead to a nice and much needed shower off!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

If watersports and sands appeal, this is a top spot, as the site is 10 minutes’ drive from Woolacombe surfing beach and surfing schools, 20 minutes from Croyde and Putsborough, and 25 minutes from Saunton Sands. And if fingers and toes are crinkled beyond recognition and need some time to dry out? The Museum of British Surfing is 20 minutes from base.

Surfing isn’t the only coastal pursuit worth sampling hereabouts… the site is half an hour from Braunton Burrows, the largest sand dune system in the UK and the country’s first biosphere reserve. A handful of scenic coastal towns and villages are also within easy reach: make a trip to the nearest of these, Ilfracombe (10 minutes away), to explore the Victorian seaside town and harbour.

Finally, turn away from the ocean and make tracks inland for Exmoor National Park (20 minutes) and its 620 miles of footpaths and bridleways, its cycle paths and climbing routes, and its canoeing and kayaking. Prefer to spend some time among exotic wildlife? Exmoor Zoo is less than half an hour away.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (17.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (8.4 miles)
  • Heddon Valley (10.2 miles)

Cycle routes
