We operate a rural quiet small family run site, ideal for those that need a relaxing break away. There will be no children running around screaming and shouting, just listen to the sounds of the birds & local wildlife. It is not easy to find small sites like ours on or this close to Exmoor. Cycle route 3 is just 0.5 mile down our lane, we also have a bridle way just 300yrds down our lane that leads you towards Exmoor, perfect for keen walkers.

Just relax with your dog
We love dogs here at Kipscombe holidays and we would love you and your dog to come and experience something a little different. As a caravan owner ourselves we always found it hard to understand why many sites do not create a fenced dog off lead exercise area or other activities for dogs to do whilst onsite. Well that's our main objective, to create something on site for dog and owner, It's a great place to wear them out whilst taking in the view of Exmoor.

Devon roads are notoriously small, but don't worry we are only 1 mile from an 'A' road. The first part of our lane is fine with passing places but the last 500 yards is by a narrow single track lane, hence why we have a unit size restriction. Please follow the recommended route via the A399. Do not use the lane that leads from the B3358 at Challacombe. Instead follow the B3358 to the A399.
Arrivals between 2:00pm and 7:00pm (late arrivals to confirm this when booking) and we ask that you vacate your pitch between 9:00am to 12:00am
