A family-run campsite surrounded by wild birds and the beautiful Devon countryside

General

  • Quiet and simple Devon site with resident kestrels and owls
  • Half an hour's drive from beaches and South West Coast Path
  • Fishing lakes and alpaca walks within a five-minute drive

Hang out with your feathered friends on this fab site in Devon.

Stonechat Meadow is well named: a wide, quiet and supremely green spot that's visited not just by the little orange-breasted flay-catching birds but by kestrels, skylarks, brown owls and tawny owls. Deer, foxes and rabbits also wander through this simple, family-run site that's set up to give visitors what they need without getting in the way of the outdoors and the Devon wildlife. Bring your binoculars, barbecue your bangers under star-filled night skies (little light pollution here) and settle in for a stay in deep countryside.

Deep as it is, you'll be pleased to find yourself 10 minutes' drive from pubs with grub and shops in Winkleigh and half an hour from the amenities and attractions of bigger towns like Bideford and Barnstaple.

It's good news for anglers here too: Stonechat Meadow is five minutes' drive from Stafford Moor's 35 acres of lakes filled with carp, perch, bream and tench. Walkers will find plenty to keep them busy: the Tarka Trail's 32 miles of river banks and wooded valleys start 15 minutes' drive away in Meeth, on trails clearly marked for hikers and bikers.

Please note

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Guests under the age of 8 are not allowed on site.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Clean toilets and loo roll, no noise from other campers as very well spaced out, nice strong shower but....

    Disliked: 

    Hard to find - sat nav took us to wrong lane and my friends same. Shower tepid not hot. Camper pitches on hardcore so very uneven and sloping and no sun and not a nice place to sit out on and eat/ socialise. No veggie option for breakfasts - being vegetarian met with ridicule by owner. Could hear main road all evening/ day. A long way from beaches. No footpaths/ walks out of site.

    Lovely area with lots of wildlife. Very welcoming hosts Mike and Rose. Exactly as described. Only a short drive to the local beaches and the Tarka Trails aren't very far either. A good central position to explore devon.
    Tent and all equipment provided, friendly hosts, good kitchen facilities.

    Disliked: 

    A tad more heat for the shower :)
    We did struggle a little to find it as we booked through Pitchup.com and they don't give you much information.

    Was let down by location of the campervan spots, which was in a rubble car park. This site would be perfect if the campervan pitch was moved to grassy area out of the car park

    Tranquil surroundings hidden in the heart of Devon. Lovely friendly hosts that also cook a mean breakfast if you want one. Good Clean facilities for toilets, showering and washing up. If you want to get away from it all and completely wind down then this is the place for you! As rural as it is, you are still within easy reach of beautiful traditional villages and pubs and short drives from larger towns, golf courses and the beautiful coast.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

If you fancy a more mammoth yomp, the Tarka Trail links up with the Devon Coast to Coast route between Ilfracombe (an hour's drive away) and Plymouth, while the wildlife and views of the 630-mile South West Coast Path can be yours in whole or in easier sections by heading to the sea at Westward Ho! (40 minutes).

The beach there is popular with surfers and Bude (an hour) can satisfy just about every craving for sea-based watersports. You can hone your skills inland too at the Ultimate Adventure Centre in Bideford (half an hour), where surfing and kayaking are on offer alongside laser tag, a Nerf arena and an assault course.

Bideford and Ilfracombe are busy with boat traffic in the summer months, taking day trippers out to the wild solace of Lundy Island with its seal colonies, wild deer and goats and long, quiet walking trails; book a return at sunset if you can for maximum romance/photo opps.

To get a little closer to the wildlife, drive a minute from the site to go walking the local hills in the company of a friendly alpaca herd. The Big Sheep at Bideford also has many pettable pals in its animal barn (alongside a rollercoaster and microbrewery), while lions and wolves, wallabies and meerkats mingle with animatronic and somewhat older lifeforms an hour away at Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (11.9 kilometres)
  • Castle Drogo (25.2 kilometres)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (37.3 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Finch Foundry (18.7 kilometres)
  • Castle Drogo (25.2 kilometres)
