About the property

Caravan in Hartland, N Devon, England - Wonderful Village Location - Walk To The Local Shops And Pubs - 5 Minute Drive To The Beach

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.

Very comfortable and cosy

  • 5 of 5

A cosy and comfortable caravan with all you need for your stay. The added bonus of having a fully enclosed garden is very useful. It also has a decked area with seating for enjoying the sun. The site is convenient to the village which has two pubs, cafe, post office and shop. The owners are very warm and welcoming. Such a relaxing break.

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend break at Hartland Caravan Holidays and have already booked to visit again! The caravan is really well equipped and unlike any other caravan we have stayed in before it had beautiful furnishings with touches like its nautical curtains and cushions. The caravan was a great base where we could walk to the village or jump in the car and visit Clovelly and Hartland Quay. Just great!

Hartland Caravan

  • 5 of 5

The caravan that we stayed in at Hartland Caravan & Camping park was spotless. On arrival the tea/coffee and biscuits were really appreciated.

We really enjoyed our stay in August and would definitely return, I can see why people return year on year. There is plenty to do in Hartland and surrounding areas and to have such a lovely camp site and caravan whilst away made for a lovely, relaxing holiday.

Special interest holidays:

The Rowan Tree in Clovelly offers a number of craft courses. The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington runs frequent art and craft workshops for adults and children and due to our rural location we have an abundance of talented craftsmen and women who encourage a "have a go" mentality, so courses and opportunities can arise anywhere!


Hartland is surrounded by beaches due to our proximity to the coast. We have a mixture of pebble and sandy beaches on our doorstep. Popular beaches are The Hartland Quay, Berry, Spekes and Blackpool all of which are only 5 minutes away. The photograph you see here on my page shows our dog Herbie enjoying Blackpool beach. A pebble beach but with a fresh water pool it's a dogs must! Drive for 25 minutes to Westward Ho! for long stretches of sand or travel for 15 minutes to Sandymouth.


Hartland is 40 minutes from Barnstaple which provides our nearest train station. National buses come into Barnstaple and Bideford and link with local buses which come to Hartland village and stop right outside our entrance. Newquay and Exeter are our nearest airports.

The Milky Way Fun Park with new wake boarding facility is just 10 minutes away and The Big Sheep 20 minutes away. The world renowned Clovelly is just 10 minutes away.
