Set 300m from the beach, Cherry Tree Farm offers everything you need for a family camping trip, but also offers additional facilities to enhance and enjoy your time on the beach. Spread over several camping fields with a central toilet block, Cherry Tree Farm seems to be perfectly situated with views of the Bay and its superb location to the village.
The campsite Reception and staff are friendly and welcoming, operating a bond system to ensure the site is peaceful, with no unruly guests and a site barrier ensuring no vehicle movements after 11pm. With well-groomed camping fields there are marked roads for car movements which allows you to let the kids play and mix in the fields with very little worry. These fields are divided into family, couples and groups. We stayed on 'Breezelands', which was a family field, and within the first hour the kids had started up a game of cricket where all ages were involved. What Cherry Tree Farm does is set up a safe, clean environment for this to happen.
There are lots of family friendly showers, with lots of space for you and your child, lots of toilets and excellent washing up areas. The site has a real eye for being environmentally responsible too, with labelled bins for recycling and even the outstanding Sri Lankan food truck serving their outstanding meals in eco biodegradable containers. Their tuck shop also offers lots of treats, as well as ice cream!
Although the site has no electricity Cherry Tree Farm offers exactly what you need to make you all very comfortable: ice to keep things cold; ice block exchange where a donation is made to charity; and a small device charge station.
In addition to the exceptional facilities and services, Cherry Tree Farm has an on-site wetsuit and board hire, for those that fancy trying out the surf for the first time. For those with wetsuits already the site has 2 large baths for you to rinse out your wetsuit ready for the next day.
What we loved was the sense of family; the sense of people enjoying themselves and their family time, and the sense of independence our children had due to the well laid out space. This is one of the most exceptional sites in North Devon.
