Late Arrival


If you're looking for campsites in Devon, then location is everything. We are nestled in a picturesque, wooded valley very near to the pleasant village of West Down, 3 miles East of lively Woolacombe, and 4 miles south of the Victorian harbour town of Ilfracombe.

We are conveniently located on the A361, between Ilfracombe & Braunton. We recommend inexperienced cyclists & walkers use the back road, or the bus, which stops on-site.

This means we are easy to find, with no small narrow roads to drive down! Not something that can be said of all campsites in North Devon!

There have been several changes to the roads between the M5 and Hidden Valley in recent years, so we recommend you switch-off your Sat-Nav, and follow these directions, which will take you little over an hour.


  • From the M5 Junc 27, take the A361 towards Barnstable.
  • Follow this road for 30 miles; crossing 3 roundabouts.
  • The first of these three roundabouts is at Tiverton where the road changes from a dual carriageway to single carriageway (keep straight ahead).
  • The second is at South Molton (keep straight ahead).
  • The third is North Aller Roundabout. DO NOT TURN RIGHT HERE, keep straight ahead towards Barnstaple.
  • The next roundabout you come to will have 2 exits. Take the first exit towards Bideford, Bude (A39) & Ilfracombe A361.
  • Go straight over the next roundabout and over the Rumsam Bridge, which is crossing the River Taw.
  • The next roundabout is Lake Roundabout, take the second exit here (right) towards Barnstable & Ilfracombe, still on to the A361.
  • You’ll shortly arrive at Sticklepath Junction (Known as Barn-Hendge to the locals), go straight over; staying on the A361 towards Ilfracombe.
  • You’ll now be going over Taw Bridge, which crosses the Taw Estuary.
  • At the first set of traffic lights, go straight ahead, towards the T junction (200-300 metres ahead)
  • At the T junction with traffic lights - Braunton Road Junction - take the left, towards Ilfracombe & Braunton, again staying on the A361.
  • Keep on this road for 4 miles, over a set of traffic lights, past The Braunton Inn on the left and over the roundabout at Chivenor.
  • Second exit at the new housing development roundabout. 
  • You’ll now enter Braunton immediately before a small roundabout.  At this roundabout take the second exit which is effectively straight ahead, towards Ilfracombe.
  • Less than a mile ahead is the main crossroads in Braunton, go straight over at the traffic lights.
  • Keep on this road for 1.5 miles and you will pass through Knowle village.
  • Again, keep on this road for 2 miles, and you’ll then see Hidden Valley on the left hand side.
  • Please call into Reception to check-in, or you can relax for a while in the restaurant and bar.
