Coronavirus update (21 March 2020)

We are aware of the responsibilities of social distancing at this period of time and the advice for people to stop travelling and stay at home to protect themselves and others.

For this reason, and with regret, we consider it necessary to close the site at least until 30th April. We will be monitoring the ongoing situation carefully.

We will very shortly be contacting personally those visitors who have made bookings for the coming weeks .

Brightlycott Barton is a 4 acre south facing caravan and camping site near Barnstaple in North Devon with excellent panoramic views.

We have 23 pitches with electric hook up and the campsite is part of an all grass organic sheep farm

  • The site consists of 20 level pitches with electric hook-ups (16amp)
  • Plus an area for tents.
  • Indoor games room and a swing frame for younger children
  • The new ablution block includes 6 showers, laundry and wash up facilities and a room with facilities for the disabled (a ramp that leads down to the ablution block with a dedicated room for the wheelchair disabled with shower/wc/wash basin)
  • Washing machine and fridge/freezer free to use in the block and a coin operated tumble dryer.

Barnstaple town, which is 2 miles from the campsite, has a historic pannier market, a leisure centre and an indoor tennis centre – Tarka Tennis. The tarka cycle way can be joined at Barnstaple. There are many lovely beaches in the area, the nearest being approx. 7 miles from the campsite.

We are just 5 miles from a 9 to 18 hole golf course and 2 miles away is a fly fishing and trout farm where you can catch your supper for a barbecue in the evening.

Exmoor National Park with its stunning scenery is very close by.
