Why stay here ...

Owners Andy, Nicky Cleave and our two sons Tom and William look forward to welcoming you to our 5CL site which is located just 6 miles from Combe Martin, near to Blackmoor Gate.

We have a level site with 5 hard standings pitches all with grey water waste, water connection and electric hookup.

The CL has lovely views overlooking farmland with Whistlandpound reservoir in the distance.

Our up to date toilet block is heated all year round, has ample toilets and showers with free hot water, use of a washing machine and tumble drier, fridge freezer and an information desk with games to borrow and fresh, free range farm eggs, you are also welcome to collect your own eggs from the nest boxes.

During high season there is a small shop with bacon, eggs, sausages etc.

We are a working farm and will happily show you around and introduce you to the animals, the pigs particularly enjoy having visitors. During lambing time, around the Easter break each year, you will be welcome in the lambing shed where there are often tame lambs to feed.

Located for exploring the North Devon coast, the famous villages of Lynton and Lynmouth connected by the cliff railway, and the Exmoor National Park. A five minute drive will take you to the National Trust property of Arlington Court which houses the National Trust Carriage Museum. Other local attractions include the Lynton and Barnstaple Steam Railway, Exmoor Zoo at Bratton Fleming and the spectacular North Devon beaches (nearest 6 miles). Nearby are the two historic market towns of Barnstaple and South Molton with their traditional Pannier Markets. Seaside towns Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Woolacombe are all a short drive away.

Nearby bus stop at Blackmore gate, if asked the buses will usually stop outside our gateway for drop off and collection.

Nearby Bed and Breakfast and glamping options for other friends or family members.

3rd visit to this site. Love it.

Westland Farm
This was my third visit to the site. Each pitch is serviced and level hardstanding. Close to the road but quiet during the night. Well placed for the places of interest. Facilities are good with a laundry room if needed. I always use Facilities in my van so I haven't used the showers etc but they looked good. Also a dishwasher area now. 5* Hopefuly I will be back for a 4th visit.

Fantastic Site

Westland Farm
This is a wonderful site; with a wonderful host. I don't want to repeat everything that other reviewers have posted, but I agree with every word. The toilets, showers and dishwashing areas are all brilliant - far in excess of what you'd normally find in a CL. Clothes washing facilities are good and inexpensive. The various other extras, such as the farm attractions, eggs and so on, are a lovely little feature. Buy some sausages too. The site is well laid out and quiet. Lovely views. There is some road noise during daylight hours, but hardly any noise at night. Being on the edge of Exmoor means the sky is super dark at night and the stars are a sight to be seen. Watching the international space station traverse the sky was an experience. Local attractions are numerous. There is much to do. Finally a word about the hosts. There was a small problem with our pitch being available on arrival. Nicky sorted it quickly with good humour and imagination. Balancing running a busy farm with looking after your camping customers must be difficult, but you wouldn't know it. If I ever go back to North Devon, I'll stay here again.

Excellent site with great facilities

Westland Farm
Nicky and Andy are excellent hosts. They sent very helpful information prior to arrival regarding local facilities/walks and places of interest. Very relaxed and easy going. Despite having a busy farm to run nothing was too much trouble and they were always on hand to help with any queries. There is an excellent modern shower block with four walk in shower rooms with toilet and wash hand basin, which are very spacious. There are also an additional three separate toilets. In this block there is a laundry room with washing machine and separate tumble drier. A suggested charge and honesty box is provided. There is a large fridge/freezer with a filtered water/ice cube facility for a nice cool drink on a hot day! Fresh eggs can also be picked up from there, with a suggested charge and honesty box. There is a large, covered washing up area. The five hard-standing, fully serviced CL pitches are well spaced and have a beautiful view over the local reservoir. It was a real treat not having to fill the water hog and empty the waste water. We discovered a local pub (just a few hundred yards away) called the Old Railway Inn, which provided good quality, reasonably priced food. Booking advisable. As it is a working farm it can be a bit noisy at times, but that is because it is a working farm and this did not trouble us at all. The coast was not far away with great walks and Arlington Court, about four miles away, (National Trust) was a lovely day out too. Ideal base for exploring the North Devon area. All in all we enjoyed our stay at Westland Farm (apart from the unseasonal rain at times) and cannot wait to go back again. Would highly recommend. Thank you Nicky and Andy, we look forward to seeing you again soon.

One of the best!

Westland Farm
Absolutely brilliant site. Brilliant base and close to all local attractions, seaside towns and villages. Beautiful views towards Wistlandpound Reservoir ( which is a couple mins away in the car and a lovely walk). All fully served, hardstanding pitches. Excellent shower block - 4 showers with toilets and 3 seperate toilets on there own. The toilet block has been done to a very high standard, very clean and the showers are hot. Best shower block we've seen! All very clean. Also includes large undercover pot wash area. All these facilities are shared. Nikki was lovely and so helpful. Will most certainly recommend. Many thanks again, Nikki

Amazing

Westland Farm
We have just returned from four days away at this amazing place. What a fantastic place to stay, each pitch has is own water and waste outlet along with beautiful views of the lake and the farm. The facilities were up to date, warm, each shower/ toilet room had a hot towel rail and very hot showers. Bacon, sausages and eggs from the farm were for sale. With these times that we live in Nicky had made the site as safe as you can, hand sanitiser, cleaning products and anti bac where every in the block. Nicki is a busy person, we didn’t get to meet her until our second day, She was warm, welcoming and accommodating, she took time and managed to show us the livestock on the farm but also just chatted about life. If we needed/ wanted anything she was there to help. What you have to take in to account is that it’s a working farm, it has its own uniqueness, it was a restful few days, we took the bus to get about, normally we would have cycled everywhere but the weather wasn’t very kind. So we will be back and thank you for a lovely break.
