Adventure-filled glamping with sea views to savour

If action-packed days on the North Devon coast and lazy evening barbecues with sunset sea views sounds appealing, Livit Adventures is the glamping experience for you. Set within the grounds of the ever-popular Westacott Farm Campsite, this new venture sees a trio of comfortably-furnished bell tents plotted in a private pocket of the 220 acre farm.

Helmed by lovely hosts Kevin and Sarah, Livit Adventures offers all-inclusive group activity weekends just south of Westward Ho!, with tipi glamping provided after a day’s adrenaline-filled, seaside adventure. From surfing and wakeboarding to coasteering and kitesurfing, the wealth of excursions on offer, coupled with their peerless base camp location overlooking Lundy Island, makes Livit Adventures top of anyone’s North Devon bucket list. For the 2019 season, they are pleased to offer a bona fide glampsite in its own right too. So whether you’re interested in riding the Atlantic waves or simply marvelling at them from atop your private bell tent’s sun deck, the choice is yours.

However you choose the spend your time, you’ll do so in the utmost of comfort with king-sized double bed, bedding, wood-burning stove and firepit provided. Facilities at the adjacent campsite are impeccable, with plenty of hot showers, clean toilets and washing facilities, while a welcoming cafe-style communal area for glamping adventurers comes complete with a pizza oven and comfy seating surrounding a communal firepit.

Some of the South West’s best beaches are a short stroll from site and you can be treading the South West Coast Path in less than 10 minutes. Head in either direction on the 630-mile trail and you’ll soon encounter some of Devon and Cornwall’s most idyllic seaside settlements like timeless Clovelly or the sparkling sands of Westward Ho!.

Nearby

There’s no end to the coastal activities on offer in this stretch of the south west, and many can be arranged direct through Livit Adventures. You’re in safe hands with Kevin and Sarah –- both are qualified instructors and Kevin is a British Masters kitesurfing champion. The South West Coast Path can be picked up a mere 10 mins from the site, while the Blue Flag beaches of North Devon and North Cornwall lay within easy reach. Westward Ho!, with its long white-sand beach popular with kitesurfers, is only 10 minutes away. Idyllic Clovelly is about 20 minutes away, a historical fishing town notable for its steep, car-free cobbled main street and industrious resident donkeys, the only transport permitted. Admission to the village is priced at £7.50 for adults; £4.50 for children and guided tours can be arranged. Around 45 mins away you’ll find Bude, with its welcoming golden sands, pastel-coloured beach huts and (allegedly) the best Cornish pasties in the south west. A similar distance, Saunton Sands and Croyde Bay are excellent for surfing –- the former is ideal for all abilities while the latter’s gnarly waves are strictly for the more experienced. Lundy Island beckons across the water from your bell tent –- book a day trip across on the Lundy Island ferry (01271 863636). Golfers can enjoy the course at Royal North Devon Golf Club (01237 473817) – England’s oldest – while the North Devon Wake Park (07956 009047), Ultimate Adventure Centre (01237 880028) and The Milky Way (01237 431255) offer fun for all the family.

Food & Drink

Local produce – including the farm’s own free-range eggs, sausages, bacon, and burgers – is available from the campsite farmhouse, along with ice creams, cold drinks, sweets and other essentials, from Easter to October half-term. For the big shop, there are supermarkets in Bideford. Pub-wise, the nearest is The Thatched Inn (01237 471321) – a lovely traditional watering hole within walking distance in Abbotsham. A fixture of the community for the past 400 years, its picturesque walled garden make it a perfect spot to while away the day. The Pig on the Hill (01237 459222) in Westward Ho! Is a cracking gastropub serving quality dishes in a down-to-earth, country pub setting. You haven't tried a real traditional Devon cream tea until you have been to Tea on the Green (01237 429406) and ordered their famous giant scones.! Located in the centre of Westward Ho!, this multi-award-winning eatery serves amazing cream teas (named after Hollywood legends), door stop sandwiches, delicious cakes and a deluxe hot chocolate to die for.

The Owner Says

Seeking out beachside days and scenic strolls along cliffs and sands? Swim, sail or surf along to Livit Adventures Glamping, a family-friendly glampsite five minutes’ drive from the village of Abbotsham in Devon.

Within easy reach of the coast, this is a top destination for rural getaways with ocean breezes. On the grounds of Westacott Farm, settle in among the greenery on site, then let those breezes take you to the South West Coast Path – a roughly 10-minute walk across fields – for spectacular views and rambles towards Westward Ho! in one direction and Clovelly and Heartland point in the other.

Get out on the water with surfing and kitesurfing in Westward Ho!, or opt instead for wakeboarding and splashing around the aqua park at the wake park. For other pursuits, the site team also own an activity company, so there are surfboards and stand-up paddle boards for rent, and paddle boarding tours to sign up for.

After all that activity, home base is no doubt beckoning… Turn feet and boards back to the campsite to unwind on a private deck, set something to grill on the barbecue, and sidle up close to the fire pit while taking in the stunning view over the Atlantic to Lundy Island, then wash up and retreat indoors where a log burning stove keeps things cozy into the night.

Excellent Glamping Experience

What a wonderful place to stay. The bell tent was so cosy with everything you could possibly imagine being supplied. Even the wind and the rain didn’t dampen our experience and when the sun shone is was glorious. Sarah and Kev were so welcoming and prepared to help if needed. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Livit Adventures for providing just the break we needed.
