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.

A great site to explore North Devon

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.

Peaceful relaxing CL

Well organised, tidy site with beautiful views over estuary and Alpacas. Some hard standing. Peaceful site, some noise from A road and wind turbines (to be expected as close). Owners very accommodating and helpful on our first trip as new Motorhomers. Appledore definitely worth a visit!

LOVELY CL

We stayed here in our motorhome last month on a hardstanding pitch. It is a lovely CL with the location being close to Barnstaple. The views were nice and it was nice to see the Alpaccas in the field opposite when we woke up in the morning. Being from Cornwall it is not too far for us so when we want to visit Devon next time we would definately stay here again. Thank you to the owners who were very nice and welcoming.

Wonderful site

Visited this site last month as a last minute few days getaway. We were not disappointed. The site is well thought out, maintained immaculately, clean, welcoming, and overall lovely. The llamas complete what is an excellent place to stay. The owners are very friendly and helpful and keep a low profile so you are not disturbed, yet are knowledgable and helpful if you need anything. This site is going to become a regular go-to for us and I would like to thank the owners for a fantastic three night stay.
