About Foreland Bothy

This Devonshire bothy offers ‘camping within walls’ accommodation right on the edge of the coast.

Small, basic and a fun alternative to camping. Foreland Bothy offers a beautiful place from which to explore the South West Coat Path. Leave all your gadgets at home and opt for a simpler pace of life in this simple retreat. 

Soak up incredible sea views on the short mile stroll along the footpath to the local pub. On the way home, make the most of the areas spectacular dark skies – some of the darkest in Europe – and spend the evening stargazing. 

With the sea so close the opportunity for watersports or simply enjoying time on the beach are endless. A little further afield, Lynton and Lynmouth are great destinations if you’re missing ordinary life. With a number of pretty cafés and fabulous restaurants, the area is the perfect place to go for a hearty meal - or if you’ve had a enough of cooking on a camping stove.

Notes for guests

Heating: No heating is provided.

Parking: The approach to the bothy is challenging as the long narrow, metalled road descends steeply with three hairpin bends, the drive is not recommended for nervous drivers. There is a parking space adjacent to the bothy. 

Garden: There is no garden, there is a space to sit outside the bothy however it does not belong to the bothy.

Hazards: This is an area with minimal light pollution so the nights will be very dark, we recommend bringing along a torch particulary to access the outside compost toilet.

Dog owners should be aware that there is no enclosed garden at the bothy.

About the Acorn rating

We have applied a 1-5 acorn rating to each cottage to be used only as a guide that covers location, style of interior and facilities you may be looking for. The range runs from 1 Acorn at a more basic level such as Bird How which due to its stunning yet remote location doesn’t have a caretaker through to 5 Acorns at the highest level – such as Shute Barton.

Cottage pricing is not judged on the Acorn rating alone and as all our cottages are of an individual nature we recommend that all factors are considered when making your choice.
