Camping and rustic glamping with campfires on an idyllic smallholding close to North Devon’s best-loved beaches

Sometimes the ins and outs of a campsite are best explained by the small print. “Please note,” states the essential info on one of Strawfields’ four rustic glamping huts, “You park in the campsite car park, then walk through the fields down some steps and across a tiny bridge to reach Lily Pad.  We are electricity free and do not have lighting on the campsite at night, so torches are essential. Pygmy goats may be grazing in the pond area... our friendly ducks may wander down for a swim... and they have been known to visit guests in the outdoor shower!” In most offices this would be called ‘managing expectations’ but, at Hipcamp HQ, we’d call it building them up. Devon-based Strawfields is just the sort of site we look for when we really want to get away from it all.

With just eight pitches and four well-spaced huts, this is a micro-campsite. And it’s not just the number of campers that are limited. Almost everything here tends towards the tiny. For starters there’s the little stream that runs along one boundary and the cute, tiny frogs that can be found there. Next there are the Shetland ponies, Kune Kune pigs and, of course, those pygmy goats. Okay, so some of the residents are regular sized: the alpacas, the farm cats, dogs, ducks and chickens; but they’re still part of the eight-acre small-holding on which this microsite is based.

It’s about as quaint as it gets with campers directed to pitches in the Poppy Patch, from where it’s a hop and a skip through the Twitty Song Meadow to reach the stream. And facilities are quaint too; basic but just enough. There are three flushing loos, two hot showers and cold-water washing-up sinks, shared by campers and guests in three of the four huts. Lily Pad has its own composting loo and shower. The huts sleep two or four and are found in a separate field. Each has its own charm and is basically equipped for a cosy stay with bedding and linen for the double bed and logs for the stove. Like the rest of the campsite, they’re off grid so don’t forget torches and cooking kit.

You’re likely to meet various members of the five-strong Straw family who run the site during the 9am round-up of the animals or at one of their regular pizza nights. But what to do in between? Apart from the good old-fashioned fun on site, there’s plenty to see and do. Strawfields may feel like the rural hinterland, but it’s incredibly close to some of the best-known North Devon beaches – Woolacombe, Croyde and Watermouth Bay among them. The harbour town of Ilfracombe is just two miles north, with Lynton and Lynmouth close enough for a day trip. Surfing, sightseeing and family-days out are hardly hard to find here but, if the sun is shining on Strawfields, the will to leave might be.

The Cabin @Strawfields
Beautiful place, wonderful host!
This place is a little slice of heaven! Alex is a wonderful host, allowing us later check out so the kids could feed the animals with her. The cabin itself was the perfect size for the 4 of us, the private shower was a luxury and the kids didn’t want to get out of it! The land is stunning, lots for children to explore even in wet weather. Lots of little touches set this place apart from others we have been to; toiletries provided, fresh wildflowers on the table when we arrived, the option of a cooked breakfast on a Sunday morning. We would absolutely come again.

The Nook
The Nook
I really enjoyed staying at The Nook with my two children. There was lots for them to do and plenty of space to run around. The Nook was lovely and cosy, it had everything we needed. It was all so close to the beaches we wanted to go to and couldn’t have asked for more.

Strawfields Campsite
An excellent relaxing break
Strawfields was a gorgeous campsite, the shower and bathroom facilities were spotless every day and such a high quality. Alex was a warm and friendly host that was constantly available should we need her. The field was spaced out well so even if it were busy you'd still have plenty of privacy. I can strongly recommend this campsite. Myself and my partner want to return and try one of their cabins which looks wonderfully made. We were sad to leave!

The Cabin @Strawfields
Posh camping at its best!
Really lovely glamping hut. We stayed in the cabin - it was well equipped, comfortable, beautifully decorated and lovely peaceful surroundings. The farm was great for the kids to explore with little streams to splash in, trampolines etc. The boys especially enjoyed making their own pizzas on pizza night. We had a small issue with the water in the wee shack but communication was excellent and the problem was resolved promptly. Shower in the shack was lovely and warm, beds were comfortable, and well equipped for campfire suppers!

From the host
​​Strawfields is an 8 acre small holding consisting of our farmhouse, three cottages, shepherd huts and a small rustic campsite.​ A fantastic location, hidden away in the beautiful North Devon countryside, yet only minutes from the sea. The breathtaking sandy surfing beaches ​of Woolacombe, Saunton, Croyde and Putsbourough are all within easy reach. The small fishing harbour towns of Ilfracombe, Lynton and Lynmouth are close by, as are the many hidden coves to discover.​ There is a public footpath running directly behind Strawfields across the fields to the local village of West Down,​ which boasts a well stocked community village shop and a great local pub.

Ilfracombe is just 2 miles away where the harbour is the hub of the town.

For golden sands, though, head to Woolacombe, 6 miles away, where there’s plenty of space for sandcastles, surfing and bodyboarding. Watermouth and Croyde are within 10 miles of site and Saunton Sands is just a tad further. If you tire of the beach and the endless watersports available there’s always the theme park at Watermouth Castle (01271 867474), the Big Sheep Farm Park (01237 472366) and Coombe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur Park (01271 882486).
