Why stay here ...

Uplands is a CL with big sky and views across the Mole Valley to Exmoor. We are located in a village setting but we have a rural feel with plenty of peace and tranquility. The village offers a C16century pub which features in the good pub guide or there is the High Bullen Hotel, Country Club and Spa for fine dining, they also offer other outdoor activities. Additionally, Chittlehamholt is lucky to have the award winning community shop for all those necessary bits and pieces.

Uplands is a good central base to explore North Devon, the historic towns of Barnstaple and Bideford are approximately 25 and 35 minutes away, we have many beaches a short drive away and 7 golf courses within 20 miles. If fishing, walking or cycling are your passion you can enjoy all of these activities and many more whilst staying with us. For more information and links on places to visit during your visit please visit our website.

Each pitch has 16amp hook-up. Please use green chemicals, as we are not on mains drainage.

There is no charge for awnings or pup tents but please use a breathable ground sheet on grass pitches.

Man’s best friend is most welcome but we request that dogs be kept on a lead to protect the wildlife. There is plenty of space to walk your dog if you do not choose to leave the site.

Clare and Colin look forward to welcoming you to their CL site.

A very friendly and peaceful site.

Uplands
We booked this site after reading the reviews and we’re not disappointed we were met by Colin who showed us to our pitch and brought us a very welcome cuppa. The site is incredibly quiet and peaceful, toilet and shower room was spotless. Plenty of dog walks near by however we did not get to visit the Exeter Arm which was right next door, will definitely return to try the pub as it’s on our list for next visit. Thank you Clare and Colin we look forward to visiting you again.

Excellent!

Uplands
From the very warm welcome from Jordan, including offering us a cup of tea, the spacious serviced pitch, sparkling bathroom, beautiful views and other thoughtful touches, we couldn’t have wanted for more! The bonus of walking distance to the lovely Exeter Inn and surrounding countryside made it a perfect stay for us. Thank you again, Clare & Colin!

Slightly Disappointed Unfortunately

Uplands
We originally booked for 7 nights at Uplands but after contacting Clare & Colin we were able to start the break three days early. We weren’t blessed with very good weather unfortunately as it rained on nine of the ten days which as it happened turned out to be a good thing as we felt there was no real space to sit out comfortably after the caravan (average length single axle), car and porch awning were set up. We can understand why it’s not been done but Uplands really need to change the photos on the CAMC listing as our pitch which was on the right at the bottom of the drive is not now grass as shown. This grass has been removed and replaced with a full hard standing for two pitches. It is not gravelled however, it is a compacted hardcore with some rather large sharp stones on top - our awning carpet has been damaged by a couple of these and they really are very hard and sharp underfoot. Due to the rain, we ended up treading in red mud from the the hard standing into the caravan. We do feel a little misled as the pictures on the listing don’t show it as it really is. Everything else is positive with the ‘Stable’ which is the washroom block being immaculately kept and a bit of luxury for a CL. The Exeter Inn is a few yards down the road and the food is excellent there - we also visited The Bell at Chittlehampton which was lovely also and has a much larger menu than the Exeter Inn. For Golfers, the Highbullen Hotel Golf & Country Club is half a mile down the road but due to development of 58 holiday lodges, this is only a 9 hole course now which is across the road from the hotel. Be aware that it is a half mile walk to the first tee because of this! Surrounding roads are very narrow but there are plenty of passing places so get used to stopping regularly to let vehicles pass, but this is the same in many counties and certainly not unique to Devon. We shopped in Barnstaple which is around half an hour away although there is small community shop in the village for essentials and a few houses have eggs for sale at the end of their drives with honesty boxes - lovely golden yolks! There is a lovely dog walk mown into the tall grass on the hill in front of the pitches which our Labrador loved! In conclusion, it is a lovely quiet site with immaculate facilities and really friendly owners, just make sure you ask for one of the better pitches.

Just superb!

At short notice, we were after a ‘get away from it all ‘ break. This CL was spot on. Great welcome from Clare. Showed us to our pitch and talked us through the facilities. The peace and quiet is amazing. All you can hear is the wind in the trees and wildlife. The view from all the pitches is across a valley. Almost nothing man made in sight. The facilities on site are stunning. One bathroom with everything you need in it. Water and electric to every pitch. I feel i have to mention the village pub too. We turned up at the Exeter Inn, hoping to eat but without a booking. They were really busy but somehow found us a table and sorted us out. Brilliant service This is one CL that we will return to. Thank you

Immaculate CL with a warm welcome, tea and biscuits and lots of local information. Brilliant value with idyllic views and good facilities. The local pub is just around the corner with excellent food and atmosphere (book to eat and check opening hours). Would recommend!
