About Westdown Farm
Located just a short few miles north of Dartmoor and within striking distance of the North Devon Coast, we’re a family run 92-acre working organic farm with an eco-friendly ethos, oh… and a pretty fantastic campsite to boot!
We moved to Westdown Farm in 2005 and in 2016, we opened our gates to wild campers and caravanners who share our passion for being in the great outdoors. There are now three generations of us who live here along with our mix of Longhorn cattle, Herwick sheep, horses, goats, chickens and dogs. We have worked hard to make Westdown Farm a haven for both people and wildlife.
Since being here we have installed nature ponds, planted hundreds of saplings and also taken an organic approach to our farming, raising only rare-breed livestock. Working closely with DWT (Devon Wildlife Trust), our farm has been the focus of numerous wildlife surveys – it is from these surveys we have learnt that our farm is home to long-eared bats, pipistrelle and at least 34 different species of native butterflies!
Our campsite has grown quickly since opening in 2016, meaning that we now have composting loos and hot showers for the 15 pitches on site across our meadows and woodland, three of which housing our famous eco-friendly glamping cabins (nicknamed, Posh Bedz in Shedz).
Westdown Farm offers visitors a unique stay, with generous pitches, incredible views and a real sense of ‘field to fork’ when it comes to the food we produce here on site. Eggs from our chickens are available on site for you to buy, and if you aren’t shy of getting your hands dirty, just speak to Farmer Dick or Stacey who will take you in with the chickens to help collect the eggs.
We can’t wait to meet you and hope that you enjoy Westdown Farm as much as we do!
