Campervan Visit May 2022

Leddon Farm
A good value site at £7 a night with access to the coastal path (20 minute walk) and nature reserve. Site owner is in new house adjacent to farm. Plenty of space on well kept grassy site but levellers may be needed. One water point at entrance to site enabling easy fill up of camper van. Toilet emptying close by and adequate.

Beautiful North Devon

Leddon Farm

Leddon Farm is a basic farm site but that's all you need here, lovely high and long views over the North Devon countryside with Lundy Island in the distance. A good spacious area of grass on this CL with plenty of room, great to just sit outside the van and enjoy what's in front of you. There's a choice of walks down to Welcombe Mouth but avoid the main car route unless you want your nose and ears clipped by wing mirrors! Take the nice leafy Welcombe valley route behind the Old Smithy Pub and follow it down alongside the stream, it's a cool ferny walk in hot weather. It's not an easy stroll, the walk is longer than it seems but worth the trek, there are no facilities at the beach. The SW coast path links in here, probably one of the most strenuous parts to tackle, quite busy and narrow with ant like walkers going up and down, there are some very steep steps more suitable for long shanked walkers! Back in the village the Old Smithy Pub provides welcome relief, nice bar food and a garden for outdoor eating and drinking. There's a pottery next door and the farm also have a small sheltered camping field on offer. Many thanks to the Cornish family for an enjoyable stay!

Leddon Farm
I have known Welcombe for decades but this is my first proper visit in many years. Leddon Farm is run by one of Welcombe's oldest families and so you can expect - and will get - a traditional warm welcome and an unintrusive stay. Elaine Cornish is very friendly and helpful (if you need her) - letting get on with your stay in peace. As one of the other reviewers has said, facilities are basic. But, for those of us who come here, this is exactly what we want: superb high-pressured water, toilet emptying point, and a place for rubbish. The field itself is very spacious, peaceful and wonderfully relaxed. It is a bargain at £6.00 a night. Leddon Farm is a busy working Farm, but this does not intrude. The site is across a country lane from the Farm and has incredible & big views of the rolling North Devon countryside and looks west towards one of Devon's most spectacular beaches, Welcombe Mouth - which is an easy walk from the site - especially if you walk home via Sandy Lane, which takes you straight pass the Old Smithy Inn, which has very convenient opening hours, well priced local beers and great food. From the site, it is a stone's throw away. There is a community shop and post office in the village - although a little way from the hamlet itself. The site is dog friendly with has walks galore. Welcombe is the real North Devon to me & Leddon Farm, thanks to the Cornishes, is the Welcombe of my childhood; I cannot recommend it high enough.

Leddon Farm
Great views, Great spot, Great price. This is what all CL's should be like. Basic facilities but with stunning views, super walks to coastal path & surrounding countryside from site, local thatched pub just around the corner & friendly owners - all this for just £5 a night, MAGIC ! Thank you
