  • Friendly and traditional farm site with fantastic views over Exmoor
  • A 15-minute drive from Tiverton and half an hour from Exmoor
  • Small shop selling farm produce including free-range milk and meat
‘Traditional and uncommercial’ is how the owners of West Middlewick Farm describe their home, making it a champion choice for a chilled break in mid-Devon countryside. It’s also rather a pretty place to have a hol. On arrival, eye up the excellent views out over Exmoor National Park from the main site, a four-acre field circled by farm walks, then amble over to the carp fishing lake to angle for the afternoon. It’s not just about peaceful pursuits hereabouts, though – the Gibson family who own the site say there’s plenty to do, spanning from theatre and film to history and heritage, in the nearby area. Tiverton (15 minutes’ drive) is home to a castle and edges a canal, while Exmoor (half an hour) has walking trails, a cracking coastline and historic villages to explore. Back at the park, a small shop sells the farm’s produce – including raw milk and free-range meat – and stocks other locally sourced ingredients such as butter, cheese, ice cream, fresh fruit and vegetables, jams, chutney and Devon fudge too. Fancy picking up a souvenir? Homemade soap and sheepskin are top trinkets to take away. And as for food? Spread out on your spacious, level pitch for a picnic or pull up a pew at one of the nearby and order a freshly cooked meal.

Electric optional grass pitch

Liked: Lovely working farm. The owners and staff/family were so friendly and welcoming. The little farm shop on site is well equipped with the tastiest fresh fruit, veg and milk. Not forgetting cake! There’s donkeys, a pony, bunny rabbit and Guinea pigs for the children to look at. Plenty of grass area for the kids to run around and play. Being on a working farm, hearing and seeing the animals as well as farm machinery was the best part for my little boy. We all had a fantastic time.

Disliked: Nothing. Not sure if wifi was available so I can’t comment on this.

Electric optional grass pitch

Liked: Great campsite and easy to find, check in at the farm shop at the main entrance. Very gently sloping field ideal for camping and the grass was a good length. Toilet block very close by, in excellent condition and 2 clean outdoor washing up stations. Overall, great value for money.

Disliked: The showers are a fair walk, located near the main entrance / farm shop, to get there from your pitch you have to walk between several farm (livestock) buildings which is very muddy and not pleasant with live agricultural activities, so I gave up on having a shower! The toilet block / washing up stations on the main field have (understandably) no hot water. There were some tractors / agricultural movements quite late into the evening and plenty of noise from cows!

Local attractions

Clip-clop around the countryside from The Rose & Crown in Calverleigh, which organises horse riding lessons (15 minutes’ drive), or take to Tiverton (around the same distance) to poke around the town’s castle and meander by its canal. Another place to peer at is Knightshayes Court, a turreted house and garden with a tearoom (25 minutes), while Bickleigh Mill – dating back to the 18th century and with a pottery studio for clay-based classes – is also worth a gander. If you’ll be keeping adventures alfresco, set off on the scenic Tarka Line rail journey, starting in Exeter (40 minutes) and finishing in Barnstaple. Or for more lovely landscapes, loop around Exmoor National Park (half an hour), perhaps up to the lush coastal villages of Lynmouth and Lynton and through the vast Valley of the Rocks (an hour). If sandy sunbathing sessions are more your bag, turn in the opposite direction towards Exmouth beach on the south Devon coast (also an hour), stopping by estuary villages like Topsham enroute for a pint at a pub with a watery view.
