Bar at Caffyns Farm

We are very flexible about camping arrangements and gladly take campers on a day-to-day basis - this is often best given the unpredictable nature of the Exmoor weather! We have five camping fields and ample pitches and facilities! We do, however, advise that you ring us in advance of coming to check on the available space, as a few of our fields operate, as many other campsites do, under the 28 day principle; in the event of space becoming limited, we will post a message on our answering machine to advise of the current situation. If there is no such message, then feel free to come!

Having said that, we ask that parties of 20 or more people do phone us in advance.

In recent years, Caffyns was an accredited Camping and Caravanning Club site until the then owners decided to end this side of their business. Now we own Caffyns, we are committed to re-establishing the site and going much further in providing new camping facilities and attractions and moving forward with Exmoor National Park to this end.

Although Caffyns is set high up overlooking the Valley of the Rocks and the coast, it is relatively sheltered from the prevailing south-westerlies. We're not saying you will not get any wind up here, but all our camping fields have mature, high hedgerow boundaries which offer both privacy and a certain degree of weather-proofing! What is without doubt are the breathtaking views and space here. The wildlife is also quite something; you can regularly wake up to red deer on the hillsides and down in the combe by the stream, herons in the fields and buzzards riding thermals overhead.

The sheer 160 acre size of Caffyns means we can offer several areas within the property for camping, from secluded and very sheltered to out in the open with huge panoramic views to sea and over the Valley of the Rocks. As you can see from the pictures opposite, our fields are very spacious and almost completely flat, something everyone has commented on. The fields are also inter-linked by proper tracks so vehicle access is easy. We have five main fields, three of which are ideal for family camping as they are close to all facilities, well sheltered, and completely enclosed, giving children ample space to play, but allowing parents to keep an eye on them! And while on one hand, we can accommodate very large groups with absolutely no impact on other campers, if you like secluded camping, we have ample space for that too! We have also just sub-divided two of the main fields with grassed banks to provide more intimate camping areas. We can also take large tents with no problems at all. If you thought Doone Valley was beautiful, this is even better!

We have excellent facilities - our completely, newly refurbished facilities block is now open, providing ample free hot showers, modern gents and ladies toilets, sinks, disabled toilet, family changing room and shower, laundry, fridge/freezer, microwaves,and washing up facilities - and we have a good range of everday camping supplies in our new on-site shop. There are water standpipes in the fields.

While at Cloud Farm, we became well known for running campsites with a very relaxed atmosphere; this is also certainly a key part of staying at Caffyns. We believe that staying outdoors is a freedom that should be as free of rules as possible. To that end, we allow campfires in all our fields (we have stocks of firestones in each field) and polite dogs are also welcome.

What our campers are saying..

Written by Sarah Preston on

We loved our stay here! The owners are friendly and knowledgeable, giving us daily updates on the weather. The shower block is impressive compared to other sites we've stayed on- great idea to have a family shower room. Good facilities for laundry and washing up and great to have use of a microwave for baby's milk. The kids loved being able to have a campfire and there is a nice walk (although steep) down to the beach. Kids loved being on a working farm- enjoyed watching the tractor and climbing hay bales and seeing the horses. Great base to explore the area which has lovely beaches and indoor stuff to do. Pretty Lynton and Lynmouth close by. Would recommend.

 Simple site with peace and tranquility. Camp fires encouraged for a traditional camping experience. Plenty of toilets and showers with piping hot water. Well stocked shop for all your supplies including local ales and cider. There's probably more but we were only there for the night. (We will definitely be returning) What more could you ask for?
