Re: Coronavirus, Covid-19
It is with great regret, and a heavy heart, that we have decided to delay the opening of our campsite until further notice.
This is not a decision as a family business that we have taken lightly, but we must think about the health and wellbeing of our family, our customers and also that of others in the local community. We must do all we can to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
We are a spacious, friendly, family run site situated in our small rural village of West Down, 3.5 miles south of Ilfracombe. We can provide you with the ideal setting for a very peaceful and enjoyable stay here amongst our beautiful North Devon countryside with easy access to all local attractions.
Pipcott Fields is close to the centre of the village. We have showers, the use of which are included in the price, and there is a plentiful supply of hot water. The toilets are part of the same area and all are very close to the field entrance.
Our land comprises of 5.5 acres across three fields. The main (lower) field with all the services is 2.5 acres so there is plenty of room. All hook-up points are 16 amp.
We also have two other fields totalling a further 3 acres which are pleasant to walk around with nice views and also good for dog walking (dogs are welcome but must be under control at all times, not allowed to wander or left unattended).
The pitch fee includes use of the site WiFi facility (which covers the whole main field) and use of a wooden picnic table. We do not charge extra for awnings or dogs.
There is also a small garden area and in the summer months there is outdoor table tennis here and boules sets available.
The site has a very gentle slope which is hardly noticeable and will not present any problems.
The Village Community Shop and the Crown Inn (good food, drink and dog friendly) are also very close by. There is also a nearby 5 acre village community field which includes a children’s play area with swings etc and some goal posts.
In addition, there are some scenic walks from site.
We are within easy reach of some lovely beaches (Woolacombe 5mls, Croyde 6.5mls), stunning North Devon coastline and the beautiful Exmoor National Park. Tarka trail access is at Willingcott (2.5mls) or Braunton (5mls). Ilfracombe, with good facilities and picturesque harbour 3.5mls. Frequent bus service 0.5mls for Barnstaple, Ilfracombe & Woolacombe but limited from village centre.
Arrival can be any time after 9am until 8pm or dusk (whichever is earlier) and pitches are to be vacated by noon on departure day unless extended stay arrangements have been made beforehand.
After several successful years as a certified site of the Camping and Caravanning Club (C & CC) we have now changed our status to become an independent site with our touring site licence issued by the local authority. However, we are still associated with the C & CC as an approved listed site but it is no longer a requirement to be members to stay here.
We currently have a self-imposed limit of no more than 15 pitches occupied at any one time. We have permission to increase this to 25 pitches once the corresponding increase in facilities have been installed over the next few years. It is our intention to remain as a quiet family site.
Advance booking is advisable, particularly around main holiday periods.
We can assure you of a friendly welcome and we will do our utmost to help you have a great stay here.
