Chitcombe Farm Camping Barn

February 24th 2018

..then explore Exmoor…

Stay on a small working hill farm, in the heart of the Brendon Hills on the edge of Exmoor.

Camping barns are often the next step up the ladder from camping.   Camping with a few extras, with the onus on you to bring everything you need as if you were staying in a tent. We like to think our barns at Chitcombe Farm have that bit more with heating, hot and cold running water and kitted out kitchens.  Ideal for an affordable family holiday or a night away for cyclists and walkers. Our camping barns (or perhaps they should be called bunkhouses) are ideal for groups and families.  There are two self contained buildings one sleeping 12 and the other 4.  

They are situated on our small working hill farm, in the heart of the Brendon Hills on the edge of Exmoor national park. Rich in wildlife, the red deer and famous Exmoor ponies spring to mind, but I recall walking knee high through heather and clouds of butterflies springing up with each step. Magnificent. Exploring Exmoor will also reveal ancient sites, evidence of human habitation stretching back and back – nearby Tarr Steps for example is a lovely ancient bridge.
