rustic - natural - simple


"Fantastic location, relaxed friendly atmosphere"

Strawfields is an 8 acre small holding consisting of our farmhouse, two cottages, shepherd huts and a small rustic campsite. It’s set in a fantastic location, in the beautiful North Devon countryside, yet only minutes from the sea. Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Braunton, Saunton, Croyde, Putsbourough and Lynton are all within easy reach. There is a public footpath running directly behind Strawfields across the fields to the local village of West Down, which boasts a well stocked community village shop and a great local pub.

Cottages, Shepherd Huts and Camping

Rustic, natural and simple is the perfect description of Strawfields and we hope you will sit back and enjoy the beautiful setting and friendly atmosphere, however, long or short you stay.


Strawfields has two cottages, HAYLOFT is both cosy and quirky (sleeps 2+2 children) and OWL BARN is spacious with enclosed garden and log fire (sleeps 5+1). They provide a great hideaway for couples and there is a fun games room for families. There are fields to explore, animals to meet, sunken trampolines, a stream to paddle in and an open fire pit to toast marshmallows. We are dog friendly, as are the local beaches and pubs which allow dogs on all year round.

Shepherd Huts

All the joys of camping with the luxury of staying in your very own unique Shepherd’s hut. The Hut, The Hideout and The Nook can be found hidden away in the Shepherd’s field. The Lily Pad is a romantic hideaway with beautiful views across the pond. All huts are set in their own private area with lots of space and the comforts of a log burner, comfy beds with duvet to snuggle under. Guests staying in the Shepherd huts also have use of the games room and trampolines up at the farmhouse. Each hut has it’s own fire pit to relax and enjoy some campfire cooking, toasting marshmallows and star gazing.


We have two camping fields with everything you need for a great memorable holiday. Poppy Patch has spacious pitches separated by long grass and apple trees with lovely views across the open fields keep an eye out for the local deer, hares and Barn owls. Explore further and you will find Twitty Song Meadow where you can paddle in the stream or play with your friends, just a wonderful space to run free and enjoy all the wonders of camping.  Our rustic wooden shower block has lovely hot showers and flushing loos and fire pits available to hire. 

Pizza Nights

Come and join us at the Strawfields pop-up pizza kitchen, where you can make your own pizza and watch it cook in our wood fired pizza oven. We will be opening on selected nights during the summer holidays.

Choose a table overlooking the fields whilst the children are invited to come and enjoy a bounce on the trampolines and cook marshmallows around the campfire. Or if you prefer, we can provide take away pizzas boxes, to take your pizza back to your tent.
