Why stay here ...

Collacott Farm CL is surrounded by beautiful countryside and has wonderful estuary views.

It is approximately one and a half miles from Fremington which has a few shops: supermarket, chemist, hairdressers, fish & chip shop and a Chinese restaurant. It also has 2 pubs.

A regular bus service is available from Fremington.

Collacott Farm is ideally placed between the market towns of Barnstaple & Bideford - the coastline and beautiful North Devon beaches such as Instow, WEstward Ho! Saunton, Woolacombe and Croyde.

The "Tarka Trail" which provides 30 miles of scenic cycle path can be accessed at Fremington Quay, from which bicycles can be hired.

Whilst in North Devon it is a must to have a 'Hockings' ice cream, which is made in Appledore (another lovely place to visit). The ice cream can only be bought from their vans, dotted around North Devon, not in the shops.

Great Site

Collacott Farm
This is a beautifully kept site, owners very friendly. Views are fantastic over the valley and river estuary. Serviced pitch with electric and water, grey waste into the hedge. Would recommend this site to anyone. Thank you for a lovely stay. July 2022

Better than expected.

Collacott Farm
Nearly didn't go as reviews weren't brilliant. It was a lovely site. Directions were really good. Access was OK. Hard standing (almost level). Water and electricity to each pitch. Gray water drains into the hedge. Welcome and instructions attached to pitch number. Clean toilet and washroom nearby. Beautiful views. Quiet site. Could faintly hear traffic on the A38 There was an adjacent field that looked like it could be used for camping so perhaps could be noisier in the summer. Linda was very helpful with info about visiting Lundy Island. Was good value. stayed 7 days.Would stay again.

Beautifully kept site with stunning views

Collacott Farm
We were almost put off booking this site because of the reviews about difficult access and noise from the wind turbines but it's ideally situated for visiting Instow, Appledore, Barnstaple and beyond so we're happy that we gave it a go. The access to the CL has been widened and we had no problems. The hardstanding pitches are level and adequate, although not generous. The whole site is very neat and tidy with stunning views over the alpaca paddock, the River Taw and beyond.. and so quite exposed to the weather. We heard no noise from the wind turbines at all, they're really not close by at all. There is constant road noise from both the A39 and the 60mph B road along which the lorries go backwards and forwards to their depot nearby.. it didn't bother us but it did mean walking from the site was a risk we didn't want to take. Not particularly keen on allocated pitches but it wasn't really an issue. I'm sure we'll visit again

Another lovely stay at our favourite site

Collacott Farm
It was lovely to be back at our favourite site and, being November it was very quiet and peaceful. Absolutely love that the pitches now have their own taps and waste can be run off into the hedges, reducing caravan jobs to a minimum and leaving more time to relax and enjoy the views. Care does need to be taken when getting in to and off the site but the owners are happy to come and help with that if you give them a quick ring. Enjoying our usual favourite haunts - Westward Ho beach, Burton Art Gallery at Bideford (the Parc Cafe at the back is great) Instow Beach and Crow Point. Just the break we needed before the run up to a busy family Christmas.
