Strawfields is a small rustic campsite (5-12 pitches in 3 fields)
The Shepherd's hut is in a field with a stream and a peaceful rural setting, yet minutes from the beaches. Perfect for surfers and couples.
The hut is ideal for two people, but can sleep 2 adults and 2 children. It has a double bed/sofa, roll mats for children and a log burner.
Outside there is a rustic camping kitchen area with seating and an outdoor fire pit.
Campfires are allowed.
Dry room for wetsuits and games room.
The Shepherd's hut is set in a wonderful rural location, yet only a few miles from Woolacombe and Ilfracombe beaches.
There are now two Shepherd huts available to hire, please also look at 'The Shepherd's Hideout' at Strawfields.
Perfect for couples, surfers, families.
If no children, the hut can accommodate 3 adults, the third adult would be £10 extra per night. You can put up a small tent next to the hut to increase sleeping space for the children, if needed.
Our aim is to keep Strawfields a small and natural campsite, with basic facilities to give a back to nature style of camping.

We relocated to Devon Sept 2014 to live by the sea and bring our children up in a wonderful rural location. Our favourite hobbies include going to the beach, body boarding, surfing, sand tobogganing and rock pooling. Our best holidays have been camping with family and friends. When I turned 40 a friend and I decided to enter some local triathlons to help us get fit. Loved the open water swimming and cycling, less keen on the running!
