Oh, what a joy it is to discover a hidden gem, and that’s just what we did when we came across Lee Meadow Farm on the PitchUp website. Nestled in the heart of North Devon in the charming village of Lee near Woolacombe, this family-run and family-friendly campsite offers everything you’d want for a proper British camping holiday.
Lee Meadow Farm is not your average camping site. With its sprawling 27 acres of tranquil, undisturbed countryside, it’s a perfect retreat for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. As you approach the site, you’re greeted by the gentle hum of the countryside, the occasional bleat of a sheep, and the rustling of leaves in the breeze.
Once you’ve settled into one of their spacious pitches, you’ll find the facilities are top-notch. There are hot showers that won’t cost you a penny, flushing toilets that are squeaky clean, and washing-up sinks that are free for everyone to use. For families with tiny tots or those who need a little extra help, the farm also has a baby changing area and disabled shower and toilet facilities. And for those who like to look their best, even in the great outdoors, they’ve thoughtfully provided a token-operated hairdryer.
But it’s not all about camping here at Lee Meadow Farm. If you fancy a little adventure, there are lovely walks leading straight from the farm down to the picturesque Lee Bay. As you wander down the trail, you’ll find yourself enveloped by nature, with the soft chirping of birds and the gentle rustling of leaves underfoot. And if you’re up for a bit of a cycle, the farm is conveniently located on the Tarka Trail, meaning you can pedal straight into the nearby town of Ilfracombe.
For those who aren’t keen on bringing their own bike or fancy trying something new, Lee Meadow Farm offers e-bike and cycle hire right on site. It’s a brilliant opportunity to explore the beautiful North Devon countryside in an eco-friendly way.
And let’s not forget the farm shop and tearoom, a highlight of any stay here. The shop is stocked with local produce and essential camping items, while the tearoom serves up delicious meals and treats. After a long day of walking or cycling, there’s nothing better than sitting down to a steaming cup of tea and a slice of homemade cake.
From the moment we arrived, we were met with a warm welcome and shown around the site by friendly staff, who are clearly passionate about ensuring every visitor has a fantastic stay.
To put it simply, Lee Meadow Farm ticks all the boxes. It offers a delightful blend of comfort, adventure, and tranquillity in a stunning setting. It’s a place where you can wake up to the sound of birdsong, spend the day exploring stunning trails, and end with a hot shower and a delicious meal. Whether you’re a seasoned camper or a first-timer, this North Devon campsite is sure to leave you with unforgettable memories. So if you’re looking for a camping experience that’s a cut above the rest, Lee Meadow Farm is the place to be.
