Pearchay Farm Camping

This park does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Well-maintained dog-friendly farm site just outside South Molton
  • A 20-minute drive to Exmoor National Park; 30 minutes to Barnstaple
  • Firepit for hire and wood to purchase; barbecues permitted

Put your faith in the bridleway and follow it into Pearchay Farm Camping, where you can share the soil with gently grazing cows, sheep and horses. At the foot of several public footpaths and just outside of the market town of South Malton, pitch up this peaceful working farm retreat for a well-maintained base that will open up a web of rural rambles in the Devon countryside and nearby Exmoor National Park, 20 minutes’ drive away.

Handily, you won’t need to wave goodbye to the sea either, as this natural haven is half an hour’s drive from Barnstaple and just under an hour’s drive from the sandy-stripped north Devon coast for surfing, paddleboarding and all manner of watersports.

Hire a large firepit and purchase wood on site for a campfire or stack up the meat on the grill for an end-of-the day barbecue, as both are permitted on site. Just don't forget to put aside the grizzly bits for your dog if you have one, as they’re also welcome on the site on a lead.

If you're still hungry, you can hunker down for local food and beers in several pubs and restaurants within 10 minutes’ drive and pick up extra rations in a couple of food shops within 10 minutes’ drive.

Local attractions

Fresh pasties, collectibles and antiques… South Molton (15 minutes’ drive) is a historical market town with sweet treats and locally grown produce for perusal. A town-based home to one of the largest collections of honeybees in the UK, you’ll want to stop by Quince Honey Farm (15 minutes) and its soft play area, shop and restaurant for a stickily sweet time.

At nearby Knightshayes National Trust (20 minutes), alternate between the Victorian house, formal gardens and the spacious outdoor space. Slightly further afield, Arlington Court (40 minutes) has more fanciful gardens, horse-drawn carriages and tea rooms.

Handily, the north Devon coast is also within reach. Saunton Sands (50 minutes) has an impressive stretch of sand and waves fit for wakeboarding and paddleboarding. Stop by the curvaceous Baggy Point (an hour) as you rise over the cliffs and descend into its neighbouring Woolacombe beach (an hour), surfers’ favourite.

Inland, at Exmoor National Park (20 minutes), walk among herds of ponies on the moors and pack a picnic for a scenic stop along the way. With wildlife spotting on the brain, you can find a greater portion of the animal world residing in Exmoor Zoo (half an hour) too.
