An ideal base…

Allercott Farm’s central location makes it an ideal base to explore the Exmoor National Park. Exmoor is a special place of wild heather moorland, deep wooded valleys, streams, lanes full of wild flowers and an abundance of wildlife, Red Deer, Exmoor Ponies and Buzzards. It is a wonderful place to explore by car or on foot anytime of year.

With the highest sea cliffs in England, and the amazingly rugged coastline from Minehead through Porlock, Lynton and Lynmouth to Combe Martin you can explore this beautiful coastline from the superb South West Way coastal path.

The seaside resort of Minehead with its sandy beach, golf course and West Somerset Steam Railway (W.S.R) is only 7 miles away.

Things to do…

Snow Drop Valley is very popular in February, which is situated on the river Avill. The parking to reach the valley is at the Exmoor Farmers Livestock market in Wheddon Cross, which is 3 miles from the farm.

The popular ‘Dunster by Candlelight’ takes place every December, the park and ride bus into Dunster collects also from Wheddon Cross and Timberscombe (just a mile and a half down the road). 

Our local pub and restaurant is the award winning Royal Oak of Luxborough and is within walking distance (2 miles) and offers good food and real ale. There are many other good pubs and restaurants close by in Dunster and Minehead.

Activities such as Horse riding or pony trekking, falconry, archery and fishing are available within 10 miles from the cottages.

Places of interest…

Within an hours drive there are many attractions to visit that include historic Exeter with its cathedral and the beaches of North Devon. Within 15 minutes are Wimbleball Reservoir for sailing, boating and fishing, the medieval village of Dunster with its Castle (National Trust), working flour Mill and Yarn Market and the restored Cleeve Abbey (an English Heritage site) is in Washford.

Other places of interest to visit are Winsford, Dulverton, Tarr Steps, Exford, Porlock, Lorna Doone Valley and Lynton and Lynmouth with its unique water powered cliff railway.

Liked: We stayed in the bell tent with 4 of us and a dog. The plot is self contained with shower, toilet and washing up area which was great for my hubby and eldest child who aren't campers! On a clear night the low light pollution enabled us to see the milky way, shooting stars and Andromeda! The field next to us wasn't being used and the other field only had one or two campers so we felt like we were on our own! I've not heard such peace and quiet before!! The dog loved it. I've not seen her so relaxed away from home before! With a teenager and a tweenager the lack of signal or electricity to charge was a huffing matter but they coped, with the help of our battery pack which is essential if you need to check weather or things to do. Best to do that before you arrive! With the recent heatwave we were unprepared for the cold of the position. The wind whips up from the valley up the hill to the site so take jumpers and jeans for the evenings and mornings!! We didn't get much sleep as the tent rubs on the beds as it flaps. The beds are up against the side of the tent with no room to move but is better if you position pillows at the corners to stop the squeeking noise. The tent flaps around generally, but nothing you can do about that! We started to get used to it after a few nights! If you have tall people the single camp beds are small both in length and width so better for small children or non wrigglers and the mattress is very thin so I'd advise you to take extra duvets for padding. We think the site is great and the owner is lovely. The location is within easy reach of the beach and Exmoor. What more could you ask for?! I'd taken some walks to do as we'd been to the area before. Careful on the lanes as very narrow and locals come tearing down them, some without slowing down!!

Liked: We liked everything, the wilderness of this camping is amazing, the field itself, the grass, the view across the hills, woods and sea. The toilets and showers are new and clean, we loved it. There are water taps at each camping pitch. the pitches are divided by un-cutted grass. The scenery is absolutely stunning. The owners make an amazing stone baked pizza and delivered hot to your tent with a really good price (8£ per pizza). They can supply you with wood logs and steel fire pit. Overall an amazing magical camping site, quiet and with basic comfort in order to experience a true wild camping. Disliked: nothing
