Freedom Camping Club

Devon Banks Campsite is just for Adults & dog friendly. Located right on the edge of Exmoor national park it provides the perfect base to explore North Devon. We are a small family run certified (CL) 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.

Campsite Exclusively for Adults
We operate a rural quiet camping site that is Adult only, it's ideal for those that need a relaxing break away from the normal stresses of life. There will be no children running around your pitch, kicking a football or screaming at each other, instead just listen to the gentle sounds of the birds & local wildlife.

Dogs welcome
We love dogs here 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 campsites do not make themselves more dog friendly, 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. Of course we do have a few rules regarding dogs to make everyone's stay a pleasant one.

Newly opened in 2017 and described by many as a hidden gem camping and caravan park.
We operate a small certified site allowing up to 5 touring caravans, motorhomes or campers. During summer months we have use of 7 pitches (5 hard standing & 2 grass) all with the option of EHU. We still only allow a maximum of 5 units which means we can space our camping guests out. It's not easy to find small CS sites like ours that are dog friendly, offering the dog facilities that we do and this close to Exmoor. Exmoor views from our camping area's are stunning. If you're a keen cyclist we have cycle route 3 which is just 0.5 mile down our lane, we also have a bridleway 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. Although rural we are not cut off, our most local towns are Barnstaple and South Molton both are 17 minutes drive. Then we have Lynton and Lynmouth which is a 35 minute drive. This is our favourite place.

Directions :

From the direction of the M5 motorway, take exit 27 and follow signs for the A361 towards Barnstaple. On reaching the roundabout with the A399 marked, take the 4th exit signposted Combe Martin, Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Lynton. After 8.4 miles you will reach a crossroads (Four Cross Way marked A), Turn Right here on to the un-named road (There is a sign at the crossroads showing Bratton Fleming shop pointing left) once on our lane you'll see a blue sign saying ‘Unsuitable for HGV’s and Coaches’). Skip to c) for the rest of the details

If you are coming from the North on the A39 or from Combe Martin, proceed South along the A399 towards South Molton. You will see signs for Exmoor Zoo on your right and after a further 2.5 miles turn left at Four Cross Way on to the un-named road (There is a sign showing Bratton Fleming shop is to the right and a blue sign saying ‘Unsuitable for HGV’s and Coaches’).

From the Four Cross Way crossroads drive past the old Exmoor steam railway and over 3 hump back bridges, you will pass a bridle path sign on your right and then the road bends to the left and heads down hill to a stream. Almost immediately after you start climbing uphill again (D on map), cottage guests turn a sharp right into our driveway signposted ‘Kipscombe’ (you may want to select first gear as it is quite sharp and on a hill). Camping guests (E on map) continue to the next right turn. We are about 1.2 miles from the A399. Please drive slowly down our lane - There may be walkers, horse riders or animals on the road.
