Camping

Back-to-nature, ​rustic, natural,
simple camping

Strawfields is the perfect rural escape with a back-to-nature style of camping. The very small and welcoming campsite offers you a unique stay in a peaceful relaxed setting. The wooden shower block has hot showers, flushing loos and sinks with lovely views across the fields. The facilities are quirky and rustic with a natural feel. Perfect​ for solo travellers, couples and families. (Sorry no dogs or campervans are allowed on the campsite).

Fields

Poppy Patch

Poppy Patch is our tent camping field with everything you need for a great memorable holiday. Each pitch is separated by long grass and hedgerows to the side. They have beautiful views across the fields. There are only 6 pitches, no over crowding. Pitches are not allocated, just turn up and find your space to set up home, then sit back, light the fire and relax. A picnic table is provided for each pitch. There is lots of space for children to play safely, as no cars are allowed on site. Take a wander around the fields, through Twitty Song Meadow and down to the stream, where you will find dragonflies, butterflies and the tiniest frogs you'll ever meet. A wonderful space to run free and enjoy all the wonders of simple natural camping.

Twitty Song Meadow

Twitty Song Meadow was aptly named by our youngest daughter, who loves to hear the ‘twitty songs' every morning when she camps. One might struggle to find another Twitty Song Meadow, so free marshmallows to anyone who knows of one! This year Twitty Song Meadow will be home to large and deluxe camping pitches but still open to all campers to explore, in low season you may meet some friendly sheep and alpacas grazing in there. A wonderful space to run free and enjoy all the wonders of 'back-to-nature' camping. If you love the simplicity of camping but you would like the luxury of comfy beds and a log burner, do have a look at our glamping options available for summer.

   Parking

There is a parking area for cars as you enter the campsite and carts available to transport your bags and tents to the pitches. It isn’t far, maybe 30m-50m walk across level ground.

  Pizza Nights

You can enjoy our pop-up pizza nights during school holidays. Make your own pizza and watch it cook in our wood-fired pizza oven.

   Fire Pits

We believe camping is not the same without a campfire. We hire out fire pits and BBQ racks, and we sell logs and kindling to make your stay even more memorable.

  Hot Showers & Flushing Toilets

The wooden shower block has lovely hot showers, flushing toilets and sinks to wash up with a view. There is a washing line and wetsuit drying rack.

   Picnic Table

Each of the large pitches come with their own picnic table, perfect for meals with friends and family. Unwind, relax and enjoy sitting around the campfire toasting marshmallows.

   Electric Free Campsite

Back-to-nature, no gadgets, no music. Plenty of time to read a book and chat around the campfire. There are USB sockets available at the Café Barn for charging phones.

We now only have 6 tent pitches in Poppy Patch and 4 larger and deluxe pitches in Twitty Meadow available; so don’t delay, book early! 

The pitches will have their own picnic table and fire pits with a BBQ rack that are available to hire. Strawfields is a simple natural campsite, the tent pitches DO NOT have electricity, but there are sockets to recharge mobile phones and a communal freezer available for freezing ice blocks at the Café Barn.
Sorry no group bookings (maximum of two pitches or huts allowed with friends or family). Please note that Strawfields is now a dog-free campsite due to our ever expanding menagerie of animals.

No dogs at anytime on the campsite.

"Strawfields lived up to its expectations! Alex and Nick have created a very special place for families to enjoy, going above and beyond what is needed on a campsite. It is a beautiful environment, well thought out and maintained, ideal for families with lots of space, a stream to play in and animals to enjoy - and plenty of hot water!"
"This campsite is exactly what we wanted. It is, as advertised, simple, natural, rustic. It is in a beautiful location, has large pitches, water, hot showers, somewhere to charge phones and freeze blocks and lovely people. We can’t wait to go back."
"What a fabulous place. We wanted a peaceful campsite that allowed campfires and it exceeded our expectations. Super hospitable hosts, great pizza night, animals for the children to see, plus all the delights of Woolacombe and surrounding area. A week was not enough."
"We had the most lovely stay here on August bank holiday. The facilities are super clean and it's easy to keep to social distancing. The children were enchanted by the ponies and the stream too. We camped but the shepherds huts look so idyllic we're going to book one of them for next year!"
