Enjoy a wonderful Devon holiday

The county that inspired Agatha Christie and Arthur Conan Doyle is the perfect place to escape from the world and experience life on a working farm. Adults and children alike fall in love with the animals that range from pet sheep and pigs through to a dairy herd that needs regular milking.

Glamping is great for family holidays

It is easy to see why glamping is so popular among families looking to bond with each other on their trips away. A glamping Devon holiday on beautiful Billingsmoor Farm gives you the opportunity to get back to nature but still enjoy the creature comforts of home. When you’re not relaxing or having fun with the animals, there are a multitude of local attractions to keep you busy. There are many leisure parks, horse riding stables and quad bike courses all within the county. The range of options plus the serenity of the farm means you can choose whether your luxury camping Devon getaway is non-stop action or all relaxation – or a mixture of the two!

Something for All the Family to Enjoy

The Devonshire Railway Centre is just a short drive away and is the perfect way to go back in time with model railways and villages. Or why not check out Bickleigh Castle and transport yourself back to the eleventh century? Tiverton is a local town that has many attractions from the Tiverton Museum of Mid-Devonshire Life, to Tiverton Castle that will teach visitors all about the English Civil War. Wherever you go in Devon you’ll find delicious Devonshire cream teas with clotted cream scones. Or why not enjoy the fudge made from the same high quality cream? Secure your luxury camping Devon trip by booking today to avoid disappointment.

    We went to Ilframcombe town quite a lot. They had a lovely 'street food' festival on the weekend we arrived so we enjoyed some food from there. We also ate in a few restaurants there (The Quay which was a big treat and Blacksands, both wonderful food) when we didn't eat in the tent. We went to Woolacombe and Lee Bay to do some rock pooling which the kids loved. Lee is just down the road from the farm. We walked across the fields from the farm and had lunch in the little pub there called The Grampus Inn, great food. It was a little steep coming back up the hill to the farm so my husband went and got the car as it was too much for the little ones along with the rain (age 4 and 7) to make it back to the farm for tea time. There is also a beautiful little church in Lee with a craft shop next door in the old school house. We fell in love with Lee, well worth a visit. We also visited Combe Martin Wildlife and Dinosaur park which we all enjoyed.

    We were lucky enough to be able to visit the Mid Devon Show during our stay - excellent show and fun for all the family. Our farm host recommended it and the local horse riding which the children enjoyed. But the children also just loved being on the farm and playing in the woodland so we didn't need to go too far!

    Try the local beaches and country walks. Kids enjoyed the Woodland Wanderers activity that's available on site. Don't over heat your hot tub as they get really warm quicker than you think.

    Killerton National Trust is ~5 miles away and excellent for children (it also has a park run on a Saturday morning - sadly didn't realise this until later in week but did enjoy running here) Tiverton Canal - a pleasant walk along the canals and place to stop for picnic and cream tea.

    Mrs. Hand - From Fri 12 Aug

    Yes take old clothes because the wood burner means you smell like a bonfire most of the time especially if you also have a wood fired hot tub. You have to light the wood burn stove to boil the water for a cup of tea so it takes a while and you really appreciate your cup of tea! We visited Tiverton canel one day which was good and took a rowing boat down the canal.

    Mrs. Hawkins - From Mon 25 Jul

    The only tip I have is, when finding the farm, don't go exactly by the sat nav. The farm is down very narrow lanes, about 700 yards before you reach your location, start looking at farm signs. The signs are not huge, so if you miss it, you will end up circling the farm - which is huge!

    The local railway mueseam for kids was very good, a local winery had stunning views. Good access to other parts of Devon and would recommend the north cost with ilfracoombe and lynton.Roads are narrow and single lane only to the farm. Recommend getting sat nav coordinates for the farm entrance lane.

    Exmouth for a beach day, about 40 mins drive. We went to Bickleigh and sat in the garden of The Fishermans Cot to watch the river and enjoy the view. The Lamb pub in Silverton was very welcoming with delicious food at very good prices. Other than that we just enjoyed the farm - the woods, our hot tub, visiting the farm animals.

    The cool box is very good so you can bring your own supplies and not have to do lots of shopping during your stay. That said definitely try the local produce supplied in the farm shop, very yummy!We did a day trip to diggerland with our two year old and enjoyed a day at the farm, walking in the woods, making pizzas, collecting eggs, splashing in the hot tub and enjoying the gorgeous views.

    - The kids loved roaming around in the woods most of all. They both went on the bushcraft course at the farm and absolutely loved it. - We had low key and gentle fun at Devon railway centre - Dunster near Minehead was a bit of a drive (1 hour) but very pretty - Clip n Climb at Exeter on a rainy day, and kayak hire at the quay

    A warning about the one track country roads to the farm would be good. An unconfident driver may have struggled. Also, Exmouth beach was more like a 40 minute journey.

    Tart Steps - hours drive away but well worth a day trip but check your route as depending on your type of car it may not be best for you to drive through the ford (we just made it!). Take a picnic and some towels for kids.

    Going to Exeter was a great day, go for the under ground passage tour at the council office, and a great pub lunch at the river at the Mill on the Ex. Also, is about 40 minutes away but the Anchor Inn in Exbridge was great, especially if you like seafood! Both places are dog friendly. Had a good breakfast at The Bakehouse in Cullopton too.

    diggerland was a big hit with the whole family and is less than 5miles from location. _x000D_ the canal is also local and worth a visit. _x000D_ if you have the money, sign the kids up for the survival day - I baulked at the price but seeing the fun they had I realised it was worth every penny.

    Beer village was beautiful and their Regatta was great fun. We caught mackerel from one one the motor boats you can hire there which were absolutely amazing. Putsborough Beach was a bit of a trek away but definitely worth it, great body boarding beach, safe for the kids, lovely little cafe and toilet block there too. Silverton Fayre was great fun and just relaxing in the hammock at the tent watching the clouds roll by, listening to the cows and the birds was perfect.
