About Brownsham Meadow

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 meadow is located next to the Brownsham National Trust - look out for the Iron Age hut. 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 cold water tap with kitchen sink, compost toilet and a fire pit for self use.
