- Farm site with hot tub and spectacular views of the north Devon coast
- A three-minute drive to Combe Martin beach; 15 minutes to Exmoor Zoo
- Pizza nights and cooked breakfasts; a mile from the village centre
As you'll have seen from its pics, Girt Down Farm has a pretty dramatic setting. With Combe Martin village centre's pubs and cafés about a mile away, it's also a mightily convenient spot for family-oriented stays.
This is a working farm that’s home to Exmoor sheep and cattle; you'll most likely spot the farmer going about his daily business on his quad bike with Willow, his trusty pup. Other than those two whizzing about there'll be little to disturb you here, so make sure to pack that book you've always wanted to finish or perhaps some paintbrushes if you're feeling creative…
Girt Down Farm also has an old railway carriage that's been repurposed as a chillout area where you can sit back and bask in the Devon sun (even when it's not shining quite as brightly, there are still some great vistas to be had from this undercover area). Essentials (like loos and showers) are also on hand, and a hot tub is available to book for a bit of extra luxury.
Barbecues are allowed here (off the ground), so feel free to get grilling. Seasonal greens are available – you're free to pick a few salad leaves to go with anything you've rustled up, but please make sure there's some left for other guests. The site staff also do cook-up nights, putting their wood-fired pizza oven to excellent use. And breakfast? A full English can be ordered the night before and picked up at the farmhouse in the morning.

You could well find yourself shuttling your travel tribe back and forth between Girt Down Farm and Combe Martin beach (three minutes' drive), a family-friendly swimming spot with a range of cafés, bars and other eateries. Watersports fans can also get paddling here, while kayak hire is available for those who haven't brought their own.
Pre-teen palaeontologists will be particularly easy to keep occupied here, as it's also home to Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (five minutes). If non-extinct creatures are called for, it's a simple 15-minute trip to see Exmoor Zoo's vast array of cute critters. Tots still got energy to expend? Take them to The Milky Way Adventure Park (45 minutes) to let off any remaining steam.
This part of Devon also has oodles of natural spots worthy of your attention: on the coast, Heddon Valley (15 minutes) and Woolacombe (20 minutes) are likely to win many hearts, while inland there's Tarr Steps (40 minutes) in gorgeous Exmoor National Park.
