Fantastic hosts!

Westland farm is a welcoming and easy going campsite. Our children loved helping at the barn and went daily to help look after the animals (they say it is the best campsite that they have ever visited). We are so grateful to the hosts for the amazing experiences that our children had at Westland. Westland also has fantastic facilities! The shower facilities are great, the best we have seen with large, clean, warm shower rooms. The washing up view was incredible! We also made good use of the drying space. We loved the freedom to pitch where we wanted and had a campfire on 4 of our 7 nights. On clear nights the night sky was awesome. Whilst we loved the facilities and the hosts, we found the North Devon weather a challenge. We really needed our wellies in August and both families (experienced campers) had to bail out our tents. Westland felt very exposed and it is definitely worth noting that you should ensure that you have sufficient pegs and guy ropes.

Excellent quiet spot with plenty of space

We needed somewhere to stay that was somewhere near Ilfracombe, so that we could get a boat to Lundy Island for a trail race. Westland Farm ended up being perfect and I booked the Drovers Hut and Yurt for 6 of us, where we could catch up with each other, cook and be comfortable. Barnstaple wasn't too far the other direction, where we foraged for Chinese take-away one evening. In terms of facilities, we easily kept warm using the wood burners and the showers were nice. We didn't use the sauna or hot tubs in the end, but Will was around to help light these if we needed. At the end of the weekend, we all agreed we might forgo the racing and stay a bit longer to enjoy the immediate area!

Absolute bliss

We came back two weeks ago from the absolutely beautiful Westland Farm. We all left feeling completly rested and refreshed. My children age 8 and 10 enjoyed the space and the freedom of the campsite and exploring the stream and the woods. Nicky and her husband were warm and friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We stayed in the gorgeous drover hut, my children learnt to light fires to cook our tea, although there is a little hob. The showers were beautiful and clean. The naughty calf was a massive highlight of the holiday too. I cannot recommend this campsite enough, the owners have thought of absoultly everything. It's clean and the views are spectacular, especially the clear skies at night. We all cannot wait to go back xx

great site, great area, fine hosts

Westland farm is an excellent site, with lots of space between pitches. The hot showers and good quality toilets are very good, and are welcome to warm up in as nights get cooler, or a long day outside! There are also fridges, freezers, washing machines and charging points available. Children love it and can run around freely and safely, and they enjoy looking for eggs in the barn and seeing the chickens, pigs and piglets. Superb dark skies, and I got some very good astrophotography pictures. The surrounding area is stunning, and superb for sightseeing, walking, birdwatching, as well as a great location to be based for any kind of water activity. Andy and Nicky, the owners, are very good hosts and have worked very hard to make the site stand out. The ONLY down side is the proximity of the road that runs alongside the site, but other than that, highly recommended and five stars!

An excellent proper campsite with excellent facilities

What can I say, our third year camping at Westland Farm & I'm sure we'll be back. Facilities are superb, showers & toliet block clean & warm. A shared fridge for a few bits & milk for the important morning cuppa. Nicky & Andrew are tremendous owners, they include the children with feeding pigs, chickens & calves. And real fires are allowed. It's not a campsite if you can't have a campfire! Great beaches nearby, great pubs for families & lots of great walking. I would give Westland Farm top marks, even in the rain! Wonderful.
