We have just had a great four-night break at Highcroft Farm across the late May Bank holiday weekend. The site was lovely and quiet with a maximum of 5 units, with just us on the first night, in a large slightly sloping well mown field with plenty of space. It is a great location for walking with easily accessible footpaths to the coast, a couple of pubs within walking distance and great views of the surrounding countryside. The site owners were very welcoming and friendly.
What an absolutely delightful site! We had such a lovely stay last week. Perfectly located just a 2km walk from the seafront at Lee, Highcroft Farm is a gem of a location, tucked away down a track in a little village called Lee. From the site we visited Woolacombe, Ilfracome, Saunton Sands, and took two walks down into the village (save your breath for the walk back up, you'll need it!), where we used the little tea rooms and spent some time on the beach. From Lee you can access the coast path to Woolacombe and Ilfracombe making it a fantastic location, particularly for those who like to walk and access the coast path. We had a lovely welcome from the site owner, and the farm itself is quiet and peaceful, the biggest noise being the bleating of sheep. We will definitely return and would highly recommend Highcroft Farm to anyone looking for a bit of peace and quiet not too far off the beaten track.
3 years on from my previous review I can only re-iterate what a lovely site it is with the owners so friendly and accommodating but not intrusive. Our families have also started using it and like us continue to find it really good for a quiet getaway. Can't recommend it enough.
We have just spent 6 peaceful nights at Highcroft Farm and so pleased to have found this little gem of a campsite, which is basic, but everything we Look for and enjoy. Using a detailed, local map of walks and cycle routes we were out most days, exploring this beautiful area. Thanks for your hospitality Jo and Simon - we will definately be back.
GPS coordinates 51.187203, -4.162748 (this is the entrance to the field) I am writing this based on my visit in July 2020 with a 8.3m caravan towed by a 4.8M car, I stayed on my own with my cat. The campsite is up a narrow single track road, but don't let that put you off. I messaged the owners first as could see that the turn into the field would be too tight to make from direction of approach (dead end road) they confirmed that I could go past the site and turn in their farm yard, this was a little tight for me but a 3 point turn was easily possible, I did the same upton leaving. Just follow the owners direction in the handbook or online. The site is basic with Chem disposal point and bins, there is no EHU. The Site is quiet and the owners were helpful without being intrusive, they happily gave me excellent directions to the nearest village of Lee using footpaths. I stayed for 3 nights and was able to walk extensively in the area and on the coast path directly from the site (about 20 mins to lee where the coast path is). The field is grass which has been cut to a reasonable length and is sloping in parts so depending on where you pitch leveling blocks may be needed. There are no set pitches but the field is big allowing lots of space. I expect to return in the future.
As a family we have now stayed here on a number of occasions and intend to keep returning, aldults and children alike love it here. Really nice people who make the holiday all more enjoyable.
