Wolf Meadows Farm: Meadow and river bank

General

  • Wild camping on a farm by the banks of the River Taw in north Devon
  • A 40-minute drive to Dartmoor National Park and Saunton Sands surfing
  • Choice of grass pitches, meadows and river walks, masses of wildlife

Looking for a wildlife-rich base in north Devon? Wolf Meadows Farm is a family-run smallholding with a wild-camping vibe on the banks of the River Taw, and set in 30 acres of green meadows and woodland.

The eco-aware site owners practise traditional, sustainable and green farming methods on their smallholding, which has flower-rich meadows bordered by dense berry- and flower-filled hedgerows and ancient woodland.

As well as a herd of rare Highland cattle, the meadows are home to laying hens and their guardian cockerel, so free-range organic eggs may well be on your breakfast menu. At dusk, bats fly overhead and owls can be heard calling across the river. Try turning off your phone to savour the quiet, and see if you can spot flitting warblers or hear curlews in spring…

There’s a choice of spacious pitches, so you’ll never feel crammed in among your fellow guests. Camp next to the river to listen to the trickling water and watch out for the occasional otter; pitch in the meadows, where wildlife includes pheasants and squirrels; or bed down in the woodlands where deer graze. Wherever you pick, you can wake up to the dawn chorus as the birds warm up for another day.

There is a lot to say about this fantastic camp …08/04/2022

    There is a lot to say about this fantastic camp site 😍
    We had booked a Riverside pitch, which were were able to choose on arrival. The pitch sizes were large, level and we had access to the river Taw.
    From the pitch you could relax and watch the abundance of wildlife. This was right up my street being a nature lover.
    We saw Kingfishers, egrets, moorhen chicks, yellow wagtails, buzzards, bats, squirrels, fish, butterflies, bumble bees and much more.
    The site is located by the river Taw and surrounded by picturesque hillsides and forrest.
    At night there is no light pollution at night giving you a spectacular show of stars, satellites and the milky way.
    The owners are very much into the conservation of the wildlife and rare breed cattle, which were grazing in the field in the centre of the campsite.
    It was lovely to see the different cows and calves. Especially the little orphan calf being hand fed. 😊
    There were plenty of benches along the riverbank for the use of campers who like to picnic, a rope swing for children to play on, archery and axe throwing lessons available at the weekend.
    The river was shallow enough for all ages to enjoy, whether it be paddling, swimming, kayaking, paddle boarding or just relaxing on the pebble banks.
    There is a large meadow away from the river for campers, offering lots of space for all sizes of set ups. By the meadow the owners are digging a large lake which will be a wonderful addition to the farm.
    The very well maintained compost toilets, washing up area, water and showers are located in the middle of the campsite, accessible by a level track. They are a little walk, however; we did not find this an issue as we have a toilet tent for convenience and a trolley to carry the water.
    There are a few luxury pods available at the other side of the farm which are perfect for families with young children.
    The owners were amazing, Marcus and John couldn't be more friendly and welcoming. We were shown where everything was on arrival. They were available via text if you needed anything eg, fire pits and wood delivered to your door.
    There is a hairpin bend to navigate into the site, but as long as you take it easy or if in a Lwb vehicle use the extra space on the bend to drive into and reverse down you will be fine. If in any doubt just call the owners and they will help you.
    This site has become my absolute favorite, we will definitely revisit and recommend to all our friends and family. 😍

    What a lovely find. The pitches were large and level and right by the river, we were able to watch the kingfishers, we also had a bit of a swim and kayaked up and down.

    The owners were really friendly and helpful and the weekend we were there there was archery and axe throwing available which looked fun.

    The toilets were composting but very clean.

    There is a very tight hairpin bend to get down onto the Site but if you are at all worried you can call the owners there is a sign as you drive off the main road with the mobile number and they will help.

    Price. A bit too expensive for a place with minimal amenities.
    Only 1 male and 1 female toilet and 1 shower for entire site. Plus both situated 10 min walk away from any camping.

    Really loved the pitch right next to the river. It is a completely idyllic location and the hosts were lovely. We were delayed due to traffic, and they stayed in contact and still had everything all set up and were willing to show us around. Lovely place for anyone who likes a quiet bit of countryside.

    Disliked: 

    If advertised as a place for motorhomes, the entrance really needs to be widened at the turn as it is incredibly tricky to manage.

    The eco loos, the space and openess, the beautiful river and wild flowers along the banks, the helpful, friendly staff, who welcomed me, showed me round the site and let me chose own spot to park up, checked in on me in the morning and gave me the confidence to tackle the climb back up out of the site.
