About Foreland Bothy

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

Small, basic and a fun alternative to camping, Foreland Bothy offers a beautiful place from which to explore the South West Coast Path. Leave all your gadgets at home and opt for a simpler pace of life in this rustic 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 opportunities for watersports or simply enjoying time on the beach are endless. A little further afield, Lynton is a great destination if you’re missing ordinary life. If you’ve had enough of cooking on a camping stove, the town has a number of cafés and restaurants where you can enjoy a hearty meal.
