The inspiration behind our enterprise is our passion for developing the production of wholesome organic food and the love of cycling and camping. We aim to provide a basic camping facility for cyclists and walkers.
We love the whole experience of carrying your reduced worldly needs on your bicycle or in a backpack and adjusting to the routine that develops on a journey, be it a weekend or a month or a year.
We hold a camping exemption certificate (tents only) which gives us more flexibility with camping . This means that there is a requirement to become a club member. A nominal fee will be included in the price of the first night's camping.
We provide pitches for campers in tents only and particularly welcome cyclists and backpackers individually or in small or family groups.
We cannot accommodate caravans or camper vans.
Our two fields, extending to 10 acres, have been organically farmed for 15 years.
In the first field is the ongoing apple orchard project, forest garden and vegetable and soft fruit beds. In the second is a willow labyrinth and camping area bordered by a stream and mature trees.
Facilities are kept low key consisting of compost toilets and fire bowls.
With cyclists in mind though, there is a very rustic gas powered shower, and a field shelter for bad weather cooking.
We do have solar/wind powered mobile charging facilities.
The nearest shop is in Totnes, about 3 miles and there are several pubs about the same distance.
