Ashcroft Campsite

Please note Ashcroft's water supply is from its own borehole, and is therefore not affected by recent South West Water issues.

Please book in advance

Ashcroft Farm has a small, idyllic campsite, hidden away amidst the beautiful North Devon countryside, with views stretching as far as Dartmoor. With an abundance of wildlife in the surrounding fields, you will not need to go far to spot a Barn Owl or Kestrel hunting. The hedgerow flowers are a kaleidoscope of natural colours in the spring and early summer, and our wild birds will serenade you at dawn and dusk. Situated 3 miles inland from the unique cobbled village of Clovelly, although off the beaten track, our site is easily accessible.

Children and dogs are welcome on our site.


Electric hook ups, water points, chemical disposal point, grey water disposal point, recycle and waste bins.

Toilets, wash basins and free hot showers.

Covered washing up area with free hot water.

Mobile phone charge and hairdryer point.

Washing machine, tumble dryer, and small communal fridge/freezer.

The site

We welcome touring caravans, camper vans, Motorhomes, tents and trailer tents.

The site is 2 acres of grassland, flat and gently sloping.

Most of the 14 pitches are a spacious 15 meters.

All our pitches are situated around the edge of the field leaving the centre free for children to play.

Electric hook ups are available on most pitches, and water taps are placed within easy reach.

Dog Friendly

As dog lovers ourselves, we appreciate the importance of the canine members of your family being included in your holiday. We are a very dog friendly campsite, we do not discriminate over breeds of dogs, neither do we limit the number of dogs per pitch.

Making us a popular campsite for those who own multiple dogs and are involved in canine sports of all kinds.

We do ask for dogs to be kept under control and for you to be mindful of wildlife and livestock. Also to be considerate of your fellow campers as we are not an exclusively dog owners campsite.

We are very happy for you to erect fencing around your unit and although dogs need to be kept on a lead or tether on the campsite, there is a large field adjoining the campsite where dogs can free run.

Dogs must not be left unattended on the campsite.

We live in a great area for dogs. Many of the beaches are dog friendly, we have forestry commission just ¼ mile up the road and the coastal footpath is a wonderful place to walk your dog. We also have several local places to eat where dogs are welcome.

Please note our day kennels are currently closed.
