We are very flexible about camping arrangements and gladly take campers on a day-to-day basis - this is often best given the unpredictable nature of the Exmoor weather!
We have five camping fields and ample pitches and facilities! We do, however, advise that you ring us in advance of coming to check on the available space, as a few of our fields operate, as many other campsites do, under the 28 day principle; in the event of space becoming limited, we will post a message on our answering machine to advise of the current situation. If there is no such message, then feel free to come!
Having said that, we ask that parties of 20 or more people do phone us in advance.
Click here to read our review in the Guardian and see just how perfect a camping location Caffyns offers.
In recent years, Caffyns was an accredited Camping and Caravanning Club
site until the then owners decided to end this side of their business.
Now we own Caffyns, we are committed to re-establishing the site and
going much further in providing new camping facilities and attractions
and moving forward with Exmoor National Park to this end.
Although Caffyns is set high up overlooking
the Valley of the Rocks and the coast, it is relatively sheltered from
the prevailing south-westerlies. We're not saying you will not get any
wind up here, but all our camping fields have mature, high hedgerow
boundaries which offer both privacy and a certain degree of
weather-proofing! What is without doubt are the breathtaking views and
space here. The wildlife is also quite something; you can regularly wake
up to red deer on the hillsides and down in the combe by the stream,
herons in the fields and buzzards riding thermals overhead.
The sheer 160 acre size of Caffyns means we can offer several areas
within the property for camping, from secluded and very sheltered to out
in the open with huge panoramic views to sea and over the Valley of the
Rocks. As you can see from the pictures opposite, our fields are very
spacious and almost completely flat, something everyone has commented
on. The fields are also inter-linked by proper tracks so vehicle access
is easy. We have five main fields, three of which are ideal for family
camping as they are close to all facilities, well sheltered, and
completely enclosed, giving children ample space to play, but allowing
parents to keep an eye on them! And while on one hand, we can
accommodate very large groups with absolutely no impact on other
campers, if you like secluded camping, we have ample space for that too!
We have also just sub-divided two of the main fields with grassed banks
to provide more intimate camping areas. We can also take large tents
with no problems at all. If you thought Doone Valley was beautiful, this
is even better!
We have excellent facilities - our completely, newly
refurbished facilities block is now open, providing ample free hot
showers, modern gents and ladies toilets, sinks, disabled toilet, family
changing room and shower, laundry, fridge/freezer, microwaves,and
washing up facilities - and we have a good range of everday camping
supplies in our new on-site shop. There are water standpipes in
While at Cloud Farm, we became well known for running campsites with a
very relaxed atmosphere; this is also certainly a key part of staying at
Caffyns. We believe that staying outdoors is a freedom that should be as
free of rules as possible. To that end, we allow campfires in all our
fields (we have stocks of firestones in each field) and polite dogs are

What our campers are saying..

We loved our stay here! The owners are friendly and
knowledgeable, giving us daily updates on the weather. The shower
block is impressive compared to other sites we've stayed on- great
idea to have a family shower room. Good facilities for laundry and
washing up and great to have use of a microwave for baby's milk. The
kids loved being able to have a campfire and there is a nice walk
(although steep) down to the beach. Kids loved being on a working
farm- enjoyed watching the tractor and climbing hay bales and seeing
the horses. Great base to explore the area which has lovely beaches
and indoor stuff to do. Pretty Lynton and Lynmouth close by. Would
