Photos & Description
Halse Farm Campsite is a small, peaceful park for touring caravans and tents. We are adjacent to the moor on a working farm producing beef cattle and sheep. We are surrounded by beautiful scenery and an abundance of wildlife including the endangered Exmoor ponies which live wild on Winsford Hill, free roaming red deer and soaring buzzards.
We have been awarded a David Bellamy Gold Consevation Award for many years helped by an amazing diversity of bird life and you may well be visited by hedgehogs during your stay which enjoy clearing up food scraps.
Exmoor is a paradise for walkers and nature lovers…walk out of our front gate onto Winsford Hill for miles of marked walks on moorland, in woodland or beside the rivers, all with a good chance of spotting local flora and fauna. We can supply laminated maps of the local area with six circular walks starting and finishing on the campsite with lengths varying from 2 miles to 12 miles. We are an ideal base for walks further afield too. Dunkery Beacon, Exmoor’s highest point is not far away and there is the coastal footpath to the north.
The village of Winsford is only a mile by road or slightly further if you choose to walk via the footpath. We have a village shop (with Post Office open on Tuesdays and Fridays 9-11am) which has a marvellous range of products, many locally sourced including meat, bread, cakes, cheese, fresh fish and homemade pasties and sausage rolls as well as the essentials.
The beautiful thatched Royal Oak Inn serves bar and restaurant meals and allows children and dogs and has a garden.
Bridge Cottage Tearooms gives you the choice of indoor or outdoor eating with a varied locally sourced menu and delicious local ice cream.
Further afield Halse Farm Campsite makes a good base for visits to Dulverton, Dunster, the Doone Valley, the Coastal Footpath and coast towns such as Porlock Weir, Lynton and Lynmouth and 3 miles away are the famous Tarr Steps, an ancient clapper bridge over the river Barle (with a handy pub right beside the river)
Make Halse Farm Caravan and Campsite your home from home on Exmoor.
We are in an unique position with spectacular views- a haven for those who enjoy the peace and quiet of the real countryside. We are ideally situated for moorland, woodland and riverside walks and for spotting an abundance of wildlife and birdlife. We hire out maps with six suggested walks of varying lengths starting and finishing at the campsite. We donate half of the money to the National Park for their environmental projects.
We do allow barbeques but only if kept well off the ground to avoid scorching the grass. For the same reason please try not to put hot pans and kettles on the ground. Although it may seem obvious we would ask that before disposing of barbeques please make sure that they are completely cold.
As a general rule plots should be vacated by 11am so that the plot is free for the next unit to arrive on or after midday. At less busy times it may be possible to stay on your plot for longer, but please check with us.
