Cricket Field: Overlooking Saunton beach five minute drive from campsite

General

  • Back-to-basics north Devon site on the outskirts of Braunton village
  • A 15-minute drive to Barnstaple; 10 minutes to Saunton Sands
  • Views over Taw estuary; several surf beaches and surf schools nearby

This is prime surfing territory on the outskirts of Braunton in north Devon. Cricket Field is a flat, family-friendly campsite with simple facilities (chemical loos on site and cold-water taps) surrounded by open farmland, with fab views to the Taw river estuary and – this is the best news – less than 10 minutes’ drive from Saunton Sands surfing beach.

In fact, there's a massive choice of really popular surfing destinations hereabouts. Woolacombe and Croyde Bay are both top spots, while Lynmouth has more tricky swells (definitely one for the experts). And if you haven’t come equipped to get out on the water, surf boards and wetsuits are available for hire at all the beaches, and there are plenty of surfing schools for novice wave riders looking to up their game.

If you’re simply not into surfing, don’t worry – there’s still plenty to do. The South West Coast Path follows the coastline, and cyclists (there’s a bike hire place a five-minute walk away) and walkers can jump on the Tarka Trail in Braunton village, to explore spectacular north Devon countryside. Golfing enthusiasts have a choice of the seaside links at Westward Ho! or two championship courses near Saunton.

Braunton itself is a buzzy little village with shops, bars and several cafés where you can refuel over breakfast after catching some early waves. There’s also a handy supermarket, but for major shopping expeditions, head to the market town of Barnstaple (15 minutes’ drive), where you can also pick up takeaways.

Thank you for your comments they are appreciated. Being our first year we understand that a shower unit would be very very useful and we are looking into this for next year. There will be new facilities also in place next year.

    Very quiet, only one other tent, next to a cricket pitch; played in the cricket nets and had a kick around..

    Disliked: 

    The cricket club drinkers were quite noisy - drinking till 2am one night..

From the manager...

Thank you for your comments which we have taken onboard. The late night at the cricket club was celebrating British Lions win over South Africa. This is not a regular occurrence. We know we can improve on the facilities and hopefully this will be in place next year. This is our first year and a learning curve for us all.

Local attractions

Away from north Devon’s surfing beaches, Lynmouth (40 minutes’ drive) is packed with cutesy fishing cottages and arty boutiques, and connected by a steep cliffside funicular railway to its smaller twin, Lynton. It’s also well worth checking out harbourside Appledore (35 minutes), known for its ship-building traditions and the North Devon Maritime Museum (a great rainy day option).

You’re well placed for day trips around the rocky crags and moorland of Exmoor National Park (30 minutes), or pottering arounds the narrow streets of pretty, seafront Clovelly (45 minutes). Ilfracombe (15 minutes) is departure point for boat cruises to spot puffins and seals on Lundy Island, and for big nights out, try out the cosy pubs and indie restaurants in Barnstaple (15 minutes) for size.

Travelling with younger kids? Take them to meet farm animals at The Big Sheep (30 minutes), see the model dinos and feed sea lions at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (25 minutes), or let them safely run off energy on Saunton Sands (10 minutes).

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (18.2 kilometres)

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (13.6 kilometres)
