General

  • Laidback family site, among hill and coast views
  • A five-minute drive to Westward Ho! beach; 15 minutes to Barnstaple
  • 35-acre site within walking distance of pub and Big Sheep theme park

Adventure Camping is a spacious site in the grounds of the Ultimate Adventure Centre, a mile and a half from the centre of Bideford and in the scenic surrounds of comely Devon countryside (with views both up to the hills and over to the coast).

Although the activity centre is closed for the 2020 season, this is a splendid spot to settle in for lots of Devon hotspots: you can walk to the Big Sheep theme park (or stroll to the local pub, five minutes away…) and a short drive gets you to places like Westward Ho! beach or to Barnstaple to hit the Tarka Trail.

There’s a whopping 35 acres of space to play with here, so plenty of scope to play games, take strolls around the lake or light up a barbecue or firepit to chat with pals. Dogs are welcome on site so feel free to bring them along for your Devon break here.

Helpful staff, great shower.09/28/2020

  • Bunkhouse
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The size of the room was great for the family, the outside space is brilliant and we will definitely go again when all attractions are open.

    Disliked: 

    Outside seating limited, 6 rooms of up to ten people and only 4 tables outside for cooking etc. If weather is good then there is plenty of grassy area but if the weather is poor no shelter for cooking.

From the manager...

Dear Genna,

Many thanks for your feedback. We are glad that you had a nice stay.

Due to the rule of 6, we have removed picnic benches according to this rule, as we are unable to accept bookings of more than 6 people in 1 room. Ordinarily, we would have more picnic benches, linked to the number of guests.

There were 4 rooms occupied in your building, thus 4 benches with 8 seating capacity.

We look forward to hosting you in the future.

Local attractions

Adventure Camping is in the small village of Abbotsham, niftily placed for the best of Devon attractions and the nearby beaches of day trips to Croyde, Woolacombe, Westward Ho! and other Devon beaches.

Less than half an hour's drive will see you at Saunton Sands, the eminently suitable surfing beach, and Braunton Burrows, the eminently spectacular sand dune system that's the biggest in England. Botany and nature buffs will find over 400 species of vascular plants and several rare species here; take a guided walk for the easiest way to spot.

Closer to home, on the edge of the Taw Torridge Estuary and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Northam Burrows Country Park is a smaller but still very viewsome option for nature walks among its sand dunes, salt marsh and grassland. Access it from the beach at Westward Ho! and drop in at the visitor centre at the northern end of the beach, open to the public in summer.

Heavenly hikes on the South West Coast Path are just a mile away, and nearby Bideford has two of Devon's toppest attractions for kids and families, the Milky Way Adventure Park and The Big Sheep.

See also the fishing village of Clovelly along the coast to the south west, a day out among the greenery of RHS Rosemoor, another among the waves of surfing spot Woolacombe, or a drive to Dartmoor for yet more outdoorsy activities: you're on an adventure, after all…

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (11.1 kilometres)
