How many people does each tent sleep?
Each tent sleeps up to six people in a double bed, bunk beds and a double cabin bed. There is also room for a cot in the main bedroom for up to one baby (under one year).
Do you take groups?
We welcome group bookings, see tab below. However, please note we don't allow amplified music or rowdy parties - it's just not what we are about.
Do you allow hen or stag parties?
Do get in touch to discuss your group, note we will only consider same sex group bookings in June, September and October.
Do you host weddings?
We're happy to host gatherings but we are not a wedding venue
Do you allow camp fires?
Of course, we think camp fires and cooking outdoors are one of the best things about camping. Each tent has a designated camp fire area. We ask that guests do not use the wood burning stove wood for this (it's cut especially small) but barrows of long-burning hardwood are available for £5.
Do you allow BBQs?
Yes each tent has its own barrel BBQ. Bags of charcoal can be bought in the pantry, or bring some with you.
Do I have to make my own bed?
We supply bed linen for guests to make their own beds when they arrive. However you can arrange for us to make up the beds if you just want to arrive and not have to worry about this. See this page for more details.
Is Berridon Farm an 'eco friendly' camp site?
We do our best to be as eco friendly as possible. We encourage recycling and provide appropriate bins. We have used local suppliers whereever possible and buy the wood used in the tents from local suppliers. We don't allow vehicles on the campsite (other than our own for fetching and carrying luggage and supplies).
Is there a pub within walking distance?
Our farm is on the footpath to the village and our local pub the Bradworthy Inn is about a 15 minute walk away on this path.
Can we check in early?
Our check in time is 4pm, if you are in the area early do telephone and if your tent is cleaned and free we're happy to allow early check in, however this will not be possible in high season.
Do you allow guests to bring dogs?
No, sorry. Dogs are not permitted. We would be happy to supply you with the names of local kennels if you need them. Our own dog, Roger, roams around the farm therefore we just can’t guarantee this being a dog free zone.
What is the difference between glamping and camping and how luxurious are the tents?
Glamping is quite a new term and really just means glamorous or posh camping. We prefer to call this comfy camping and while luxury is very subjective our comfortable beds, blankets, candle light, sofa, woodburner and all the accessories we supply are certainly a lot more luxurious than a ground sheet and a flapping tent. Each tent has a wood burning fire with oven for warmth and cooking, while on warm days the front of the tent can be rolled up to provide a cool flow of air and a fantastic view. The kitchen is very well equipped and includes an espresso maker, cool cupboard, and plenty of good quality kitchenware, glassware and crockery.
How do you keep food cold?
Each kitchen has an insulated cool cupboard which is like a more rustic version of a cool-box. This is kept cool by the addition of frozen water bottles which, when defrosted, can be swapped for new frozen versions in the freezer in the pantry. Any baby food or milks which need to be kept icy cold can obviously be kept in our fridge for safe keeping.
Are the wood-burning ovens difficult to master?
The stoves have hobs above the fire for cooking and simmering and a small oven. They take a while to heat up and we think mastering cooking on a wood burning one of the most fun parts of your stay. Each tent includes information on cooking on the stove.
How do we book Sunday breakfast?
You can prebook Sunday breakfast by calling 01409 241552 the week before your stay or book it on arrival. The breakfast is served in the farmyard Barn and we can offer vegetarian and vegan alternatives with notice. It's a hearty breakfast and Sunday papers can be ordered.
Are children allowed to roam freely on the campsite?
The five tents are situated in an eight acre field which is free for all wandering. However parents should note there is a stream bordering the field and we ask that all small children are supervised at all times. Your children's safety is entirely your responsibility at all times. There are tyre swings in the field which children will play on for hours, a wendy house, and a treehouse.
Is there a safe area for tiny toddlers?
The tiniest toddlers should obviously be closely supervised at all times, however the veranda at the front of each tent is fenced with a gate. For little ones we have fire guards available, as well as travel cots, play-pens and high chairs to borrow. We don't charge a hire fee for these as don't think parents should pay more for such essentials.
Can we walk anywhere we want on the farm?
Guests are very welcome to walk around the farm, apart from the barns and any fields growing hay.
Are there animals to see?
Depending on the time of year there may be sheep in the camping field. There will generally be sheep and cows on other areas of the farm. Usually in paddocks or roaming the camping field we have goats, lambs, there are generally a couple of pigs too. We do have to move animals around to give the ground a rest so can't guarantee what animals will be in the field. Oh and there are chickens too in a paddock in the camping field to collect the freshest possible eggs!
Do we have to pay for eggs we collect from the henhouse?
No. Guests are welcome to collect eggs everyday. We do ask that guests take only what they need to leave eggs for others to collect also, and ensure their children don't take eggs for playing with!
Can my friends come and visit me during my stay?
While we are happy for our guests to welcome their friends during their stay we do ask that for our insurance and security reasons we are notified beforehand, and reserve the right to refuse. We also ask that there are no overnight stays and that guests take into account their fellow campers with regards to noise, we'd hate anyone to feel that another guest's fun has imposed on their stay.
Can you recommend the best places to go locally?
Of course! We have a Berridon Newspaper in each tent giving details of the immediate area, and also a leaflet which gives details of places to go, eat, surf, beaches, riding, cycling... all tried and tested by our family.
Can I park next to my tent?
No I'm afraid not as we need to keep the pasture in the field suitable for animal grazing. There is an unloading area in the field for cars, and a separate car parking area. We have wheelbarrows available to take things from your car to the tent. If parking right next to your tent is important to you we're probably not the best to come and stay!
Can I pitch a tent outside my cabin tent and have my friends stay?
Because we are a small self contained campsite we're pretty perfect for group bookings. Our five tents are perfect for five families, or groups of up to 30.
We welcome groups of friends or families that want to book out the whole site. Please contact us for details of availability.
If the gathering is a special celebration groups can use our sports barn for a night during their stay, and this can be catered on request or guests can use the pizza oven to cook their own pizzas and breads.
Groups can enjoy sole use of the camping field and all amenities during they stay.
Please note same sex bookings (ie stag and hen groups) can only be taken at certain points of the year and must book the entire site not just three or four tents.
