Why stay here ...

Hillcrest Farm is set on a working farm and is in a quiet and peaceful location.  The site offers 2 acres of well spaced grassed pitches offering electric hook ups with a short walk across to the shower and toilet block.

Within easy driving distance you have the small seaside resorts of Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Croyde, Lynton and Combe Martin.

Exmoor National Park is only about 7 miles away and offers excellent walking.

Established over forty years.

Please note: The CL’s spare electric cable has recently gone missing (July 18). If anyone has accidently taken this whilst visiting the site, Mrs Blackmore would be really grateful if she could be contacted as she likes to have the cable available to any members who may need it when visiting.

Scenic and central

Just spent six nights with Elizabeth and Robin on their well-managed farm and CL. Pitches are wide enough to maintain privacy and close enough to be neighbourly. Elizabeth was very welcoming and concerned that you knew where everything was and that you had sufficient information to enjoy your stay. Centery Lane benefits from 360 far views and Exmoor is a short drive (or long one, depending on where you want to visit) with all of the north Devon coastal resort towns within an easy drive. We had lovely weather and a lovely time on this lovely working farm. Looking forward to returning in the future.

Complete Relaxation. Brilliant!

A superb and well sited working farm cl site. The owner, Elizabeth and son Robin made us very welcome on arrival and was instrumental on making our 7 night stay very enjoyable - that is apart from the sheep - who kept us entertained in one way or another throughout the week! The shower and toilets are kept in an immaculate, clean condition and all pitches have EHU and drinking water taps close by. We will be back very soon to enjoy the farm, family and lovely quiet surroundings. And don’t forget - the site is close to lots of superb locations around North Devon. Enjoy!!

The best CL in North Devon

As a family we love North Devon, we have holidayed here for the past 50 years, the last 10 years we have caravanned at Hillcrest Farm because it is the best. The quiet, the views, the pitches are so far apart it feels like you are pitched on your own. The grass is always mowed and kept tidy, the two on site toilets and shower block are spotless. Elizabeth always is welcoming and very helpful and the location allows easy access to Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and of course the Blue Flag beach of Woolacombe. This truly is a perfect CL, look no further.

Fantastic & welcoming site

This is the best cl site we have ever been to. Brilliant location, easy to access if you use the excellent directions in the handbook, on the Internet or given by Elizabeth. Lovely & peaceful site & area, excellent space in field with super views. Excellent, spotlessly clean toilet & shower facilities. Very friendly & helpful farming family to make a perfect holiday stay. There are lots of lovely walks in the area for our dog to also enjoy the holiday. We will definitely keep on returning year after year as often as we can.

Hillcrest Farm CL

Easy enough drive down the single track road to the farm entrance, but care is needed when coming back onto the A3123 as you are near to a bend. Nice welcome from the owner who greets you on arrival, but we saw no one else after. Very large site with ample room for all & pleasant views of the lambs in the field in front & Exmoor in the distance. We were on our own from Monday onwards so very quiet ...but very windy, as is the case on most sites on West Down. The shower & toilet looked clean & more than useable (we didn't) & the CDP was in the far left corner, so as mentioned quite a trek to empty the bins at one end & toilet the other. Taps on most pitches though. Facing the view you got sun in the morning but if close to the hedge you didn't get it on the awning in the evening. Visited this area many times now & still love it around here & as mentioned you can reach everywhere from here quite easily. I would recommend this site ...but .. the strong wind all week as it was last time on the Club site down the road .... can be a negative.
