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.

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.

Shame about the entrance

Collacott Farm
Although this site has beautiful views and is in a good location, for us with a new 8 foot wide van the entrance was off putting and we ended up worrying about getting off all week, especially after the motor home next to us caught one of the pillars on the way in. Pitches where fully serviced with great views but as they have other fields with camping and caravanning on it was pretty noisy.

Extremely difficult access, unfriendly owner and noisy.

Collacott Farm
Owner was quite sharp on the phone when we confirmed details. Exceedingly difficult access for a long unit and we ended up using the mover. It wasn't helpful when some old boy poddled along half-an-hour after we'd already pitched to try to tell us how we should have got in which apparently involves driving forwards and backwards until you manage it! His comments were totally irrelevant by then. Pitch had been marked with a board and envelope with just surname. Not very friendly - more like being in some institution than a CL. The information sheet put in with the arrival document mainly listed fish & chip shops and eateries. Would have been much more useful to provide what other sites do, i.e. details about local doctor, vet, caravan accessory shop, supermarkets, etc. as well as the eateries. Very noisy from the nearby A39 and windmills. Very exposed to prevailing westerly winds. No obvious dog walk except along the tarmac farm track and no nearby public footpaths. Beware the narrow road at the farm entrance as large high-speed lorries speed along it. Not recommended.

Beautiful site, lovely owners just a little road noise.

Collacott Farm
We stayed at this site during September 2021 and it is a stunning location. Owners are very friendly and welcoming, leave you to get on with your holiday but are always around if you need to ask any questions. Lovely views and only 1 mile from the Tarka Trail. Instow and Appledore are so lovely to visit and the Glorious Oyster (Instow) does some simply great lunches. Greylings fish & chips and Fremington quay cafe are also worth a shout. We definitely will return. Keep up the good work Linda & Ian.

Great Site

Collacott Farm
Easy to find but follow instructions not satnav as other local Devon lanes can be barely 6ft between hedges. Friendly informative hosts, wonderfully kept hardstanding pitches with water and ehu to each.CL has pictureesque view overlooking Taw estuary. Location good for local walks. Fremington quay lovely spot but avoid crowds sunny weekends! We only stayed 1 night as weather turned bad but would love to return.
