About Brownsham Campsite

Nestle down for the night at Brownsham Campsite, complete with iron age hut, willow tunnel and earth oven.

One of North Devon’s undiscovered gems, a muse to countless artists and authors, Hartland offers sublime beaches, awesome cliffs and stunning scenery, and an overriding sense of calm, peace and quiet.

The campsite is located next to the Brownsham National Trust - look out for the Iron Age hut and wood sculptures. Where you set up for the night is your choice, up to four can sleep in the hut, and you can pitch a tent within the fenced area.

There’s a water standpipe, toilet, fire pit and earth oven – if you’d like to try this out have a word with one of the rangers.
