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.

Super Site

Collacott Farm
Just returned from 12 nights in Ian's Paddock (the new addition to the main CL). Plenty of room on each pitch with own electric and water. We were lucky to have the pitch with the view over to the estuary. Plenty of places to visit and excellent walks. Saunton Sands great for watching the kite surfers. Take a ball of string with you if you go walking amongst the dunes at Braunton!! We are new to caravanning so have plenty of CLs still to take advantage of, but would definitely recommend this site. Barnstaple great for all your shopping needs. Many thanks Ian and Linda and we hope to return in the not too distant future.

Lovely CL in north Devon

Collacott Farm
Enjoyed a week at Collacott Farm with a well serviced CL that has water and electric at all pitches. Easy location to get to but make sure you use Ian and Linda's directions and not your Sat Nav as some local lanes are not for caravans or motorhomes. Lots to see locally so enjoy your stay

Lovely site

Collacott Farm
Lovely peaceful site with amazing views. The Alpacas were interesting to watch from the caravan. It was a bonus to have a tap on each pitch.

Collacott Farm
Very helpful owners. Ensured I knew how to get to the site with a call before I arrived. I had issues with my caravan door and solved the problem. Also did his best to issue we had everything. I am very grateful. Thank you.

A great site to explore North Devon

Collacott Farm
Just had another wonderful long stay at Collacott Farm which is our favourite CL site. We have been coming here for years. Situated on the hill above Fremington there are views of the Taw estuary and big, sometimes starry night skies from the site. For between 10 and 40 minutes of driving you can access loads of gorgeous, mainly dog friendly sandy beaches - Instow, Westward Ho, Northam Burrows, Crow Point, Saunton Sands, Croyde Bay, Woollacombe and Putsborough. The South West Coast path provides spectacular cliff top walks at Morte Point, the Valley of the Rocks above Lynton, Baggy Point and Hartland Quay. The Tarka Trail is great for biking. There are lots of interesting towns and villages nearby - Barnstaple, Bideford (the Burton Art Gallery is really nice), Appledore, Clovelly and Combe Martin. There is just loads to see and do. The owners, Ian and Linda, are lovely, really friendly and helpful and although the site is basic it is well organised and follows Covid measures carefully. The entrance to the site angles off the main drive so you need to follow Ian’s instructions and approach it carefully and slowly on your first attempt (but we now get round it in one with our estate car and lunar clubman so it is doable once you know how to tackle it). If you want to explore North Devon you couldn’t pick a better location and we can highly recommend the Hocking’s ice cream.
