Former YHA camping barn on Exmoor

Located a mile outside the town of Dulverton on Exmoor, Northcombe Camping barns sleep up to 44 in two barns, converted from a watermill, on a working farm. The location in the Barle river valley with good canoeing, walking and bridle-ways makes it the perfect base for groups wanting to get out into the beautiful Exmoor countryside. The barns sleep 16 and 28 in partitioned dormitories. Smaller groups can be catered for. The wood burning stoves heat the communal areas and run the central heating for the bedrooms (barrow load of logs: £5) electricity is on a £1 meter. The kitchen is well equipped with cooker, fridge, microwave, kettle, toaster, pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. Visitors must bring their own pillows, sleeping bags or quilts and warm clothing is advisable in winter. Northcombe is a place to get away from it all so there is no WiFi but guests are welcome to use the WiFi at Woods Bar and Restaurant in Dulverton for free. Dogs welcome if kept under control at all times and by prior arrangement.
