Explore North Devon

Set in the heart of North Devon, Bampfield Farm provides a great base for exploring this beautiful part of the country.

We may be biased, but we think we think North Devon offers a unique mix of culture, world-class food and award winning beaches in North Devon. Where else in the world can you dine out at a Michelin starred restaurant, view world-class sculpture and take a dip in the sea at a blue-flag sandy beach – all in the same day?

Beautiful rural landscape

With two national parks just a short drive away from Bampfield Farm and areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounding us, there is plenty of landscape to enjoy. We have beaches  that are fantastic to visit, whatever the season – to build sandcastles, to blow away the cobwebs or to visit one of the top surf spots in the UK.

To the north of Bampfield Farm lies Exmoor National Park, a dramatic landscape of moorland, farms, valleys and woodland.

Country towns and historic villages to explore

We have a wonderful mix of fishing villages, rural hamlets and old country towns on our doorstep.

Some of our particular favourites include the picturesque towns of Lynton and Lynmouth, which cling to the steep wooded valley and plunge towards the harbour. Best of all, you can use the world-famous water-powered cliff railway to travel between the two towns.

Another Bampfield Farm favourite is historic Clovelly: imagine little white cottages set along a steep cobbled street and a fishing harbour. Add an ice cream, a cream tea or a pint at the 18th century Red Lion – it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon.
