OverviewExmoor Camping Barn is a recent conversion of a 19th century stone farm building on a traditional farmstead in the heart of Exmoor National Park. This luxury camping barn sleeps 10 in 3 rooms (of 2, 3 & 5 beds) and is available on a sole use basis. Designed to provide quality, comfortable, self catering accommodation, there's a well equipped kitchen, a spacious dining area and fully made up beds with towels. The barn is fully heated, with plenty of hot water, a drying room and outside seating for those balmy summer evenings. Evening meals can be provided with prior arrangement and breakfast supplies can be bought in ready for your arrival. The local pub serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals. The area is a designated International Dark Sky Reserve and especially in the autumn and winter months visitors can spend happy evenings star gazing. Wildlife abounds in the neighbouring moorland and Snowdrop Valley. The nearest beach is 7 miles away at the medieval village of Dunster, while the local village with it's pub and shop is just 3/4 mile down the road. For walkers the Coleridge Way runs through the farm and leads to 600 miles of footpaths and bridleways and the SW Coast path is nearby. Within an hour’s drive you can find both Woolacombe and Croyde, infamous for providing surf all year round.

Dark Skies Festival 2020
March 11th 2020
Visit Exmoor for a variety of Stargazing events. From 16th-31st October 2020.
Ideal for stargazers, weather permitting, look to the night skies above Dunkery Beacon as Exmoor offers Europe’s first international dark sky reserve. Recognised in 2011 by the International Dark Skies Association for its low levels of light pollution, we have a festival of activities for two weeks during October/November every year.
From Dunkery Beacon, the highest point in Exmoor National park, on a clear night you can see up to 3000 stars with the nake eye. Star-gazing here is an all year around activity, but the winter months provide greater darkness, giving you the best chance to see the Orion constellation which is visible in the Northern Hemisphere night sky between November and February.
Beautiful new bunkhouse on the Coleridge Way in the heart of Exmoor National Park
November 14th 2019
If you fancy walking this 50 mile route from Nether Stowey in the Quantocks to Lynton on the north Devon coast then Exmoor Camping Barn is the perfect place to stay with the route running through the farm.
Newly converted from an old stone dairy and stables, Exmoor Camping Barn is much more luxurious than the name implies. With central heating, quality solid beds which will be made up for you when you arrive and a fully equipped kitchen/diner you could be forgiven for thinking you were in a 4* holiday cottage. What’s more if you really want to spoil yourself after a hard day’s walking you can book an evening meal and provisions for breakfast the next morning. Warning: It is so comfortable you may need to stay for more than one night!
