Buckland Farm Camping
Discover the beautiful Blackdown Hills from our back-to-nature campsite, on a working farm close to the Somerset/Devon border.
About: Our off-grid campsite nestles under the Blackdown Hills in a perfect location for exploring this part of Somerset. There are views of the hills from the site and easy access to local walking, such as Buckland Woods and Quants Moor Nature reserve. These are beautiful ancient woodlands, teaming with wildlife and are part of the Blackdown AONB.
There are plenty of attractions locally if you want to get out and about or if you would rather, relax and unwind with a glass of wine and cook your supper on one of our grill/campfires.
Mown into the meadow we have a created a picnic area with tables and space to play. There is a large bell tent lounge with seating, children’s games and books/maps. New for 2023 we have a freezer area and somewhere to charge your phones and small gadgets. There is an off lead area for your dogs to run, sniff and play and this year we have added two fenced pitches so that your dogs can run loose on your pitch (on leads though around the site).
The pitches are spacious with only 15 in total, spread over five acres. The pitches are mown into the longer grass and are around 12 x 14 metres in size and can accommodate large set-ups e.g. extra gazebos/pup tents etc. (there is no extra charge for these).
We have compost loos (six, plus urinals), hot showers, and washing up sinks.
Worth Noting: We are in a deeply rural setting but also just 10 minutes drive from the M5, giving easy access for exploring. We are a working farm, so at busy times, there may be some tractor noise.
