Caffyns farm is a very relaxed site. They allow open fires and provide everything necessary for their use including lots of firewood sold in the shop and baskets of rocks to keep the fires contained. They also have picnic benches throughout the site which are excellent for a bbq (that we can supply!)
It is an expansive site so even on a busy weekend due to its very large size we have always found a secluded pitch for our tipis.
It is probably about a 1.5 to 2 mile walk into Lynton on a pleasant quiet road and then a cliff railway or very steep walk down into Lynmouth. . Both towns have some great pubs; we suggest the village inn at Lynmouth as it has some great food, ales and a nice atmosphere.
We have chosen this campsite for your tipi holiday because for stags, hens or active famalies you are probably in the hub for outdoor activities.
Exmoor offers a whole host of activities including mountain biking and walking in beautiful, rugged and remote scenery. (All supplied by Exmoor Adventures)
Both Lynton and Lynmouth offer some excellent climbing and there are some good canoe able rivers (there is also an indoor climbing wall at North Molton which is roughly 30 minutes away)
At Lynmouth you can charter a boat for deep sea fishing.
The town itself is very popular due to its beautiful rugged landscape, excellent walking and of course cliff railway.
At Ilfracombe coasteering is available (book – Exmoor Adventures) and Woolacombe is a very good beginner –intermediate beach for surfing as due to its size it absorbs the crowds well, it works on all tides and has some good hire shops nearby.
Saunton is also an excellent beginners/long boarder beach and also offers some excellent hire facilities. (Due to its 10 miles of golden sand backed by dunes Saunton has also been the setting for many a film and music video, Pink Floyds cover art for a momentary lapse of reason was also shot here)
Based on the campsite is the Caffyns trekking centre which will provide breath taking rides over exmoor.
Facilities wise it has clean and hot showering facilities and the farm shop sells a good range of food and essential camping supplies.
All in all a beautiful site in a wonderful setting makes for the perfect tipi campsite!
