With a long private driveway, Stowford Farm is cut off from the noise of main roads but it is actually an easy journey to surrounding attractions. For most this means the coast, where beaches like Woolacombe and Saunton Sands beckon, the latter backed by huge dunes ideal for exploring with kids or the dog. Between these two beaches the smaller sandy crescent of Croyde is also popular, particularly with surfers who can hire equipment or take lessons from Surf South West (01271 890 400). From here there is also a good walk up to Baggy Point, though those looking for something longer should commit themselves to sections of the coastal path or the Traka Trail, with exquisite cliff top views. Out of peak season it is worth heading south to absurdly pretty Clovelly (01237 431781) or, in busy months, head north into Exmoor National Park with endless footpaths and bridleways. Perhaps the ultimate way to escape, however, is to take the ferry out to Lundy Island (01271 863636), a windswept little land mass, 25 miles out from Ilfracombe.
Food & Drink
The Old Stable bars serve decent pub food and are accompanied by an onsite fish and chip take-away and the Stowaways restaurant. There are no pubs or villages within walking distance of the site, but family and dog-friendly spots nearby include The Crown Inn (01271 862790) in West Down, The Royal Marine Pub and Hotel (01271 882470) in Combe Martin, The Grampus Inn (01271 862906) in Lee, and The George and Dragon (01271 863851) in Ilfracombe. Stowford Farm shop, onsite, sells local produce.
There are some overhead power cables in the 'Bridge Park' field, so strictly no kite flying in this area.
Stowford Farm Meadows is located at Berry Down, Combe Martin, North Devon, EX34 0PW
Take junction 27 off the M5, follow A361 to Barnstaple. Through Barnstaple follow signs for A39 to Lynton, just outside Barnstaple turn left onto B3230. After several miles turn right at the garage at Lynton cross onto the A3123. Stowford Farm Meadows is 1.5 miles on the right.
For those who are towing a caravan, we do not recommend the A399 route to Combe Martin from the North Devon Link Road. If you choose this route (or take it in error) be careful to avoid the signs to ‘Stowford’ on the left hand side, near the Exmoor Zoological Park.
No public transport passes the site but the nearest train station is Barnstaple (0845 748 4950) where buses (01271 373058) run to and from Ilfracombe or Combe Martin.
