Only with a well-equipped, clean, heated toilet and shower block.

The Owner Says

Back to basics camping just like it used to be! If you would like to camp in an open field, under the stars, with a small campfire outside your tent, where you can sit and watch the night sky on a clear night with a beer in your hand then this it the camping site for you. Facilities are a clean toilet and shower with free hot water, a drinking water tap, a fridge freezer, washing machine and tumble drier and a plug for an electric hair drier. For families there is plenty of room for children to run and play in the camping field. Children are most welcome to visit the farm animals, we will show you around.  Collect freshly laid eggs, from the hens for breakfast. Being close to Exmoor there is very little light pollution; when you are staying remember to look up and see the stars! We also allow campfires.

We do accept dogs but as we are a working farm with livestock in all the surrounding fields, we would prefer dog owners to contact us directly so we can express the fact and the importance to keeping dogs under close control or on a lead at all times.
