Devon Banks Caravan & Camping site North Devon

dog friendly campsite exmoor

Devon Banks campsite is just for Adults & dog friendly, located right on the edge of Exmoor national park.

We are a small family run camping site in a rural location between Bratton Fleming and Challacombe, located in North Devon but only a few miles drive and you're into West Somerset.

We operate a rural quiet camping site exclusively for adults, ideal for those that need a relaxing break away. A small certificated site allowing up to 5 touring caravans, motorhomes or campers. As we are adult only 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 that are (dog friendly) offering the facilities that we do and on or this close to Exmoor. If you're a keen cyclist with have cycle route 3 which 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. More information can be found by visiting our Local area page.

Newly opened in 2017 and described as a Hidden gem - Camping and Caravan park

Open - Mid February until Mid November.

The campsite has it's own designated access and positioned in a field away from our farmhouse and holiday cottage. Spacious pitches with views of the North Devon rolling hills.

We ask that dogs are kept on a lead whilst in the designated caravan area, but you are welcome to use the communal off lead dog paddock just a few metres away (large fenced paddock with Exmoor views).

Dogs welcome

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 1:00pm and 6:00pm (late arrivals to confirm this when booking) and we ask that you vacate your pitch between 9:00am to 12:00am
