For the ultimate in chilled-out locations, set up camp in the legendary Lorna Doone Valley, where your neighbours could include buzzards and red deer, and listen to Badgworthy Water flowing peacefully behind your tent. Head out onto the South West Coast Path from the moor to take in the fantastic scenery.
Cloud Farm is a dreamy location where you and your fellow campers can make yourselves at home on the lush grass of this tranquil spot. Choose a pitch right by Badgworthy Water and enjoy wildlife-spotting, as well as the stunning views of the border between Somerset and Devon. The campsite has 8 electric hook ups for campervans and motorhomes. You can charge your electric car or bike. You’ll also find an indoor washing-up area, toilets and a shower trailer on site. An onsite shop sells basic food supplies and camping essentials and if you don’t fancy cooking, then check out our breakfast selection in the shop or pop down to The National Trust Buttery Tearoom at Malmsmead for a lunchtime treat.
With both Somerset and Devon on your doorstep, and nature all around, you’re spoiled for things to do and places to go when you stay. And there’s plenty of opportunities to tuck into cream teas as well. When you’re ready to explore, there are plenty of walks to enjoy from the campsite to explore the secrets of the Doone Valley and visit places like Oare Church. For a change of pace, and scene, then head to the coast at Lynton or Lynmouth and hop on the funicular Cliff Railway. Romantic, rugged and remote Exmoor offers plenty of wild pony spotting opportunities, or take a hike to Dunkery Beacon, with its incredible views over moorland and the Bristol Channel on a clear day.
Dramatic seascapes are a given in this part of the world, and if you head south into Somerset, the villages of Porlock, Selworthy and Bossington should top your day out to-do lists. Medieval Dunster village - possibly the most intact medieval village in England with its working watermill and packhorse bridge - is also a must-see. And if the views at the campsite have whetted your appetite, then Watersmeet has ancient woodlands, a dramatic river gorge and a lovely tea garden just waiting to be explored. A slightly longer drive will take you to the stunning and family-friendly beaches of Croyde, Woolacombe or Saunton Sands where you can build sandcastles and eat ice-cream for as long as you like.
