About

Peaceful, tranquil camping in beautiful farmland meadow with panoramic countryside and moorland views.

Enjoy the opportunity to get away from it all and literally sit in nature in this beautiful farmland meadow on our working farm on the National Trust Holnicote Estate in Exmoor National Park. There are spectacular, panoramic views to the Dunkery Commons moorland, Webber’s Post, Ley Hill, Horner Woods and around to Selworthy Woods, North Hill and Grabbist.

The campsite is conveniently located to explore the surrounding Exmoor moorland, woodland and coast, including Bossington Beach and Porlock Weir, with miles of beautiful walking. Porlock, Minehead and Dunster are within a few miles, with their pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops and the delightful villages of Luccombe, Horner, Selworthy and Allerford are local (including four tea gardens).

Magnificent oak trees, woodland, hedges and undulating pasture create an idyllic landscape, leading up from around 150ft above sea level to Robin Howe on the skyline and then over and up to Dunkery Beacon, the highest point on Exmoor at 1705ft.

Here at the campsite, you can rest your eyes on the beautiful views while enjoying peace and quiet, with the River Aller meandering through. There is myriad wildlife including buzzards, foxes, hares, rabbits, beavers and water voles – and you may even spot some
wild red deer passing through.

There is access to treated, drinking quality water and basic amenities with washing up facilities, toilet block and shower. Camping is available in July and August for adults (16 years and over) and well-behaved dogs. Advance booking only.

Our farm is also home to the Exmoor Pony Project. Exmoor ponies are one of Great Britain’s oldest native pony breeds – and they are endangered. The Exmoor Pony Project helps to safeguard and promote better understanding and treatment of Exmoor ponies. Meet the herd and learn more!
