Dog Owners

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.

Getting here

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

Spring Eco Offer

Pitch cost just £7.00 per night for stays up to 30th April.

Electric is optional and is charged at cost based on what you use. 

If you wished to have electric we ask for a daily £8.00 deposit. We take a meter reading at the start of your holiday and a meter reading at the end of your holiday.
