Exmoor Blueberries: The view from the pitches!

General

  • Wild pitches among old pasture in the Exmoor National Park
  • An hour's walk to Dunkery Beacon; three hours to Porlock Weir
  • Next to an organic blueberry plantation with pick-your-own

Exmoor Blueberries is a supremely secluded Somerset site deep in the Exmoor National Park, about a mile from the village of Exford (a tiny place with two pubs and a tearoom).

Getting to this wild site on an organic farm is something of an adventure in itself – the nearest minor road is a mile away, so you'll need to refer to the directions as a sat nav will not get you here. (Please note that substantial work has been done to improve the track)

The journey here is well worth it, though – nature reigns supreme here, and you’ll be pitching up in old pastures that haven’t seen a plough for 50 years or more, surrounded by beech hedgebanks of even greater age. There’s a vast array of plant and insect life around to inspect, and you’ll likely be treated to a proper starry display by night, this being part of a Dark Sky Reserve (the second to be created anywhere in the world…)

Facilities on site are basic, to keep impact minimal – there’s a bathroom hut with flushing toilet and basin (please don’t use any chemicals), a tap with soft Welsh spring water, and a washing-up sink in the blueberry hut. Wood can be provided for a fire, but please ask in advance so you can be pitched in a suitable position. Most importantly, guests here are asked to adhere to ‘leave no trace’ principles.

If you’re here in blueberry season, the PYO staff will direct you to the areas where you can pick your own fruit (priced per kilo, and extra tasty for all that wildness around the fields…); an excursion to the pub is a good idea at any time of year, with a footpath to follow if you’re up for the walk.

Please note

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

You can either bring your own wood or ask the owner for wood. Please do not help yourself to wood: this environment is dead-tree friendly for environmental reasons and should be left as is.

    The quiet remoteness of the campsite and that it was so wild. Simon the host was fantastic, he made sure we had everything we needed and left us to it. Exford is also a fantastic place for eating and generally walking to on the footpath. We would love to come go back in Blueberry season, perfect campsite!

    Very relaxed, felt like wild camping but with access to toilets, so much space, I had a field to myself and no time I had to be out by. Friendly owner, lovely place. Would highly recommend. And the blueberries are delicious!

    Disliked: 

    But of a walk to the toilet block but that lead to peaceful camping spots. The access track was very 'off road'

    Certainly the most delicious berries you can eat. The owner is a fountain of knowledge. Perfect to pitch our tent, enjoy the peace and go for a 'pyo walk'.
    It's so close to Exford, where you can enjoy the playpark and the lovely cafe next to it. Will come back.

    Beautiful remote place recently discovered. V quiet- no other campers, amazing dark skies for star watching, great views over Exmoor countryside, and of course, lots of tasty blueberries on site! Downsides? Maybe there could be hot showers in the future and better toilet/washing facilities? Also, a mown grassy area for pitching tents on. But, we liked the bumpy access track with it's twists and turns- definitely part of the charm.We'll be back next year!

    Real gem of a campsite if you like it wild like we do. Set away from disruptions of day to day life, somewhere you can really feel away from it all. Stunning views, beautiful night sky, down to earth and friendly staff. We will definitely be revisiting. If you like tat shops and club houses this is definitely not for you.
    Ideal for off grid campers.

    An absolutely beautiful, remote location that feels like camping in nature, especially when we had the field to ourselves. Amazing views day and night (we were lucky enough to have a starry sky) and comfortable grassy ground to sleep on. Very welcoming and friendly owner. Lots to do in the area, walks, amazing beaches. Simple but perfect, we can't wait to go back....

Directions


In blueberry-picking season, look out for the Exmoor Blueberries PYO sign by the Crown Hotel in Exford, and then follow further signs along the way. At the ford, turn right to access the site (rather than following the sign pointing left to access the blueberry fields).

Outside of blueberry season (when there will be no signs at the Crown Hotel), turn for Porlock at the Crown Hotel and in 60 yards, with the village green on your left, turn onto Combe Lane. The site is a mile along from here – keep going when the tarmac runs out as you go through a ‘hedgebank tunnel’ and then emerge onto a concrete track. Follow the concrete track along for 30 yards to a right turn, which is the site’s drive. Cross the ford (usually a maximum of one inch of water) and then turn right to enter the yard. Honk your horn loudly to announce your arrival, or bang the brass knocker on the green door of the house.
