South Ford Farm Camping: View of the shepherd's hut

General

  • Riverside campsite on a Devon farm, 25 minutes' drive from Barnstaple
  • A 20-minute drive from Exmoor National Park; 50 minutes to Croyde Bay
  • Dog-friendly, no-frills camping with river views and grazing sheep

South Ford Farm Camping is a small, family-run pop-up site in north Devon, set peacefully alongside a river. Here you can get far, far away from the rat race to watch sheep grazing in the fields, paddle in the river and enjoy the sunset along with your evening barbecue (bring your own equipment). On clear nights, just lie back and watch the Milky Way twinkling far above.

Watersports enthusiasts, this is a great base for you. The farm is a 50-minute drive from some of Devon’s most popular surfing beaches, including Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay and Woolacombe. You can explore the wild moorland of Exmoor National Park on foot, horseback or bike, and if the weather’s not co-operating for you, treat the kids to the indoor pool and climbing wall in South Molton, or give beekeeping a go at Quince Honey Farm.

A 10-minute drive away, South Molton is your nearest town. Here you can pick up bits in the supermarket or root around artisan food stalls at the Pannier Market (every Thursday and Saturday). For big shopping trips (and restaurants serving all kinds of food) Barnstaple (25 minutes) is your best bet.

This is a laidback, simple site with a handful of amenities, including a shower block, washing-up station and recycling facilities. Dogs are welcome, but please, not at pitches by the river.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Twin axle vehicles are not permitted on site.

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

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

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

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

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    A lovely site, friendly and welcoming owner. Super clean facilities. Loved the exciting river setting with shallow beach areas to play in and feel this would definitely appeal to families with young children. We very much enjoyed our two nights.

    What a beautiful site - really pretty river to paddle in and lovey pond to sit around. The facilities, which included a 24/7 hot & powerful shower, two proper flushing toilets, and hot water washing up station were all kept spotlessly clean. Chris was really welcoming, met us at the gate and gave us loads of information about the site and the local area, as well as coming for a chat during the day!
    We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and will be back again next season :)

    Everything. The couple made us feel very welcome and both greeted us at the gate. They also let us borrow blocks to level the van.
    The grounds were beautiful, they had 2 outdoor toilets and 1 shower. All very clean and well maintained.
    They also had sinks to wash up in and bins for ash, dog waste and general.
    They were happy to help with taxi numbers and restaurant recommendations.
    Just lovely!
    Thank you😊
