General

  • Peaceful and laidback site among spectacular Devon views
  • A few minutes from Woolacombe
  • Direct access to the Tarka Trail

Wave goodbye to rowdy groups and say hello to a comfortable, quiet and peaceful break at this laidback park: the new owners took over in May 2015 and have drawn deep on their collective 30+ years industry experience along with feedback from guests to assist this little site to evolve into what they reckon is one of the best natural camping sites in the area.

The ethos is to give guests a great camping time on a small peaceful site, and so there are no hidden costs for hot water, wifi or mobile phone charging, and the shops, clubs and launderettes are left to the bigger sites in the area. Good clean shower and toilet facilities and a sheltered washing-up area are always to hand.

Families staying at Bay View are chuffed to be able to sort their own entertainment for kids around the safe play areas and plenty of space to kick a ball or fly a kite. Dogs are (most rightly) also considered full family members here too, so the team has added a large pooch walking area for furballs to run, chase balls and generally roll around.

Bay View Farmers is near the award-winning beach of Woolacombe (1.7 miles to be exact) and has spectacular views over to Lee Bay and up to the Bristol Channel; on a clear day you should be able to see the coastline of Wales. It has direct access to the Tarka Trail and good access into its pitches as it's just down the road from Woolacombe village.

    A lovely clean site, staff very helpful & friendly, they put some gravel down for as the ground was quite boggy( due to the weather) for us to erect our awning, nothing was too much trouble. Close to everything, beaches, attractions & shops. Also had a good 🐶 friendly area to walk them & a dog friendly Pub couple of minutes from the Site so walking distance, if you peace and quiet this is the Site, also had a doggy bath to wash them after a walk. Would definately stay again 👍👍

    What wasn't there to like about a lovely spacious campsite! Very lovely electric grass pitch with sea views, an exercise field for the dogs, lovely clean toilets and shower block and overall a lovely kept site! Even a bath to wash the dogs after a day of fun on the beach which was just a short drive ( we would have walked but too hot for the dogs!) The children loved running about and playing! I'd liked to thank management for a lovely stay as they we very helpful and friendly! And finally a great location close to all good neighbouring towns and attractions and the tarka trail which is a lovely walk! ☺

Site close to Woolacombe and other lovely beaches. Clean facilities. 04/09/2017

    Site close to Woolacombe and other lovely beaches.
    Clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch was quite small and so neighbouring tents were rather close. Also we had been allocated a corner pitch so it was slightly tricky for access with the caravan.

From the manager...

i feel i need to respond to your review as it is in my opinion an unfair score..however i do take on board you comments on the difficulty maneuvering a caravan into a corner pitch, if you had asked we could have done this for you,as we do this regularly to assist where needed, again i will say that size seems to be a subjective area where many reviews express our generous proportions, but i understand that you found it snug....as it is we are not the campsite for you and i wish you luck to find what you are looking for in the future.

Local attractions

Bay View Farmers has direct access in one direction to the wealth of wildflowers, insects and safe rides and rambles of the Tarka Trail, which you can amble or pedal all the way into Ilfracombe. In the other direction, various cycling networks run along the short distances to Croyde, Georgeham and Braunton.

Several highly scenic walks to take the dog to lead off the Tarka Trail, which can take you directly to Lee Bay, or you could follow the coastal path all the way to Bull Point Lighthouse.

The kids will go baa-my over the eccentric excitement of the Big Sheep, and the thrills of the Milky Way adventure park will send them into orbit. For more family fun, try Exmoor Zoo or Combe Martin Dinosaur Park, both a short distance from Woolacombe.
