We booked for 5 nights but would have happily stayed 2 weeks.

We booked pitch #1(of 3), a private, secluded pitch ideal for a small family. We had woodland to one side and fields of sheep & lambs to the other. Plenty of room for games of frisbee, football, Kubb etc.

We got regular visits from Pedro the peacock, a confusion of Guineafowl and Chickens (complete with chicks) which were always welcome.

Being amongst the working farm was totally relaxing, the private shower and toilet (2 mins walk away) made this a perfect balance between camping and glamping - exactly what we were looking for and totally unique!

We enjoyed local days out to Woolacombe Beach, rockpooling at Combe Martin, Segway Experience and Quad Biking but equally enjoyed the walk around the farm where my daughter discovered a hidden community of fairies - nice touch!

My 10 year old boy absolutely loved the site, being surrounded by nature and wildlife. He’s obsessed with hedgehogs right now and Jackie showed him camera footage of a hedgehog entering the farm at night, she even setup the camera again for us one evening but this time he was a no-show. All this topped off with a games room meant that for him (8 years camping, averaging 3 x per year) this was the best site he had ever been to, demanding we come back again soon. Apparently (discovered on the journey home) the addition of a few rope swings is the only way this site could be improved!!! :)

Can’t rate this site highly enough and cannot wait to return for longer. Can’t think of a thing to improve and hope it stays very much the same!

Such a warm welcome from Jackie, Antony and Bella the dog.

A warm welcome to the farm of Jackie and her husband and dog Bella. the way there was already an experience. The environment on the farm is beautiful. We were welcomed with delicious Devon cream tea and fantastic scones with cream and jam. What a party! The children were allowed to help feed the sheep and chickens every morning. We enjoyed so much. Jackie's breakfast is superb. In short, we recommend a stay at the old Huxtable farm to everyone! Thanks again for everything Jackie! With kind regards!

Couldn't have asked for anything better, especially for the price. The space between pitches is great and we still felt we had a lot of privacy, despite being in a tent. We had our own private washroom, which was really nice. Being able to walk and explore the land around was great as well. Having the animals around was really nice, especially seeing the lambs and the chicks.
Overall, couldn't have been better. We are so happy we stayed here and we are definitely going to come back as soon as possible.

Best campsite we've been to. The pitches are private and nice and flat with the water nearby each plot, also there is a washroom with either a shower or bath for each plot. Also the use of a fridge/freezer microwave and table to eat at if it's cold . Plugs to charge devices and a games room with a mini pool/snooker table and table football. Well sited to get on the a361 to get where you need too. A very warm welcome when we arrived and tour whilst meeting the farm dog peacocks with chick's and the chickens. Really pleased we found this site and will definitely be coming back

To call Huxtable Farm a campsite is to do Antony and Jackie a huge disservice. The pitches they provide on their farm are well thought out, with fantastic views, privacy, and are as close to 'wild' camping as you can get without being on the Moors. Being woken by the birdsong and rain, rather than arguing families, are among the best bits of camping. The facilites are great, located in a farmhouse outbuilding. Each pitch allocated a room with toilet and washing (shower or bath), accessible via external doors. Partner wanted to stay again, before we had even fallen asleep on first night.

It's definitely one of the best places I've ever stayed. Jackie and Antoni were very kind and attentive.
