Apple Pippin, Brambly Hedge and Scrumpy Duck are 3 self catering holiday caravans located in the unspoilt village of Hartland on the stunning North Devon coast. Hartland itself is within an area of outstanding natural beauty meaning that the area boasts stunning scenery with a variety of beaches and an abundance of woodland and coastal walks.
Established 3 generations ago our campsite has proved popular with visitors year after year who enjoy what our area has to offer on our doorstep from walking the south west coastal path to surfing at local hot spots, stone skimming and rock pooling. Even on a cold day swap your flip flops for wellies, take a thermos, a picnic and wrap up warm to go stone skimming!
Situated on our family owned and run campsite in Hartland each one of our holiday caravans offer guests stylish and well equipped self catering accommodation which is open all year round and where we are happy to accommodate guests for everything from overnight stays, weekends and midweek breaks to full weeks.
All of our holiday caravans have been decorated with a coastal theme taking inspiration from the beautiful area in which we live. Apple Pippin, Brambly Hedge and Scrumpy Duck all have well equipped shaker inspired kitchens in either off white or light oak, have generous sunny living and dining areas and have all bed linen, towels, tea towels and many extras provided. Outside each holiday caravan has its own large, private, enclosed lawned garden, with decking and garden furniture as well as ample parking.
Our location is undoubtedly what makes staying with us so popular as an easy 3 minute stroll from the campsite will take you down to the hub of the village where you will find everything you need from your daily newspaper and fresh loaf of bread to small general stores selling fresh meat, fruit and vegetables alongside everyday groceries. You will find a couple of great pubs serving food, wine, beer and one which prides itself on its wide array of different branded gins, a great coffee shop ideal for a morning cappuccino and bacon roll not to mention their fabulous cakes, a Post office and general store as well as several art and craft shops offering wonderful gifts to take home. Our holiday homes are located in Hartland village on the spectacular North Devon coast. The village is just 2 miles from the coast with its mixture of pebble beaches, small coves and sandy gullies. Go rock pooling and stone skimming, splashing and paddling, swimming and surfing or just sit and watch the white horses. A day at the beach really is a wonderful way to relax.
Alternatively walking the South West Coast Path allows visitors to take in the dramatic coastline with its far reaching views, wonderful wildlife and hidden bays and waterfalls.
Hartland has its own Abbey which is open to the public to view the historic house and visit the beautiful landscaped gardens as well as enjoy the fantastic tea rooms. During the season the Abbey also hosts a number of events from outdoor theatre productions to snowdrop Sundays and bluebell weekends.
Hartland Quay just 5 minutes away and is where you will find the Wreckers Retreat bar and restaurant with its amazing views along the coast, a local shipwreck museum and beach.
Nearby there is Docton Mill and Gardens with tea rooms, Cheristow Lavender Farm with tea rooms and Hartland Point with a great food and drinks cabin. You will not need to go far to find a tea room serving delicious Devon cream teas.
We are delighted that in Novemeber last year we saw the much anticipated opening of Pattard Kitchen. Owner and head chef Bjorn Moen delighted guests with his gastronomic dishes when he won best pub food of the year in 2015 whilst he and his family were running The Hart Inn in the village. Returning to Hartland last year he has now opened the restaurant which is just a 2 minute drive (or 10 minute brisk walk!). An absolute must for a special occasion or just a treat whilst on holiday.
Alternative favourite eateries of regular guests include The Old Smithy in Welcombe, The Bush Inn in Morwenstow & The Hoops Inn at Horns Cross.
Just outside of the village you will find the world famous Clovelly village is just 5 minutes away and offers visitors a unique opportunity to walk down a cobbled street and experience the beauty of the privately owned fishing village. With events throughout the year from the lobster fest to the wonderful Christmas light switch on, Clovelly offers something for everyone.
The Milky Way is just 10 minutes away and The Big Sheep just 20 minutes away and both offer wonderful days out for our little guests (and most of our adults too!). Visit their websites for detailed information.
Take a day trip to Lundy Island by boat on the Oldenburg from Bideford or Ilfracombe. This pretty island is full of charm and delights visitors year after year.
Just 20 minutes to the East is the Little White Town known as Bideford where you will be able to find a Morrisons and an Asda, banks and fuel stations as well as several small independent shops and cafes.
Drive 20 minutes in the opposite direction and you will arrive in the beautiful Cornish town of Bude. Bude has a Sainsburys, a Morrisons and a Lidl as well as banks, fuel stations and several small independent shops. Bude also has a beautiful sandy beach and a great swimming pool.
Trains come into Barnstaple station which is 40 minutes away and national buses run to Bideford from where you can catch local buses to the village.
On booking you will be sent a prepaid envelope with a confirmation of booking form for you to check and return along with a £50 non refundable deposit. The outstanding amount can then be paid 4 weeks before your arrival, if time allows or if not as soon as possible.
Generally change over days are on a Friday or Saturday, however I regularly have change overs on a Sunday and I am happy to accommodate any day which works with existing bookings.

Very peaceful campsite tucked away yet near everything.campsite has everything you need including fishing pond.very friendly & helpful owners.village just a pleasant 5 min walk shop & few pubs (kings head recommended) .all in all a very nice place & we hope to return in the future.
A lovely caravan very clean with nice finishing touches....perfect location just on edge of village with several pubs to eat at and Hartland point a short drive away. Its easy to access Cornwall with plenty of walks along the coast. I would highly recommend.
We booked a 5 day break here and was certainly not disappointed. Zoe was an excellent host..nothing was too much trouble. The caravan was delightful. Perfectly clean and thoroughly equipped with special little touches that made us feel very welcome. The enclosed garden was a delight for our two dogs and the fishing lake was a delight for my husband after a hard day sightseeing!. The location was perfect..central to the bustling tourist areas as well as the quieter parts of the wonderful north devon coastline. The village pubs and village shops were a few minutes walking distance. We would definately stay here again if we returned to Devon :)
We had a great holiday and our caravan was superb. It was in a perfect position, nice and quiet and with lovely surroundings. The caravan was very well equipped and very clean and tidy. We loved the little touches left by Zoe, that made us feel very welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend a stay here and we hope to visit again.
This was our fourth year returning to this site and we were not disappointed. The setting is just a short walk from the village of Hartland and a quick drive to the beautiful, rugged North Devon coast. The site fishing lake provided many hours of relaxation for my husband. The accommodation is full of little luxuries such as tasteful cushions and throws and there is always a wonderful welcome from the owners. We shall look forward to our return next summer.
