Campsite General Details
The Westermill Farm Campsite consists of four fields of about 12 acres, see the Campsite Map.
No, we do not have set pitches — you choose a spot and pitch up wherever suits you best.
You can pitch up anywhere in the four camping fields [see Campsite Map] that does not infringe upon the space of another camper.
Yes... emphasis on “beside”... please DO NOT park on your tent.
Not exactly... our First Field is fenced off from the Exe River and consequently is best suited for families with young children.
Otherwise, families with children of different ages camp in ALL our fields.
a. Yes, “quiet time” begins at 11:00 PM.
b. Yes, “quiet time” begins at 11:00 PM... EXCEPT in the Fourth Field where staff is reluctant to attend at any time after dark.
Preferably before 8 PM and certainly before “dark”... even if you are familiar with our campsite arrivals after “dark” tend to be disconcerting for other campers.
Preferably before 5 PM and certainly before “dark”... even if you are familiar with our campsite traffic after “dark” tends to be disconcerting to other campers.
Yes, each online booking form should only contain the details of an immediate family.
“Immediate” being the people you usually live with in your home... although this being the "2020's" we are somewhat flexible about “usually live with.”
Fair question, here are two suggestions on how to do this — depending upon how many friends there will be.
1. Arrive together... or as close together as you and your friends are able and simply pitch up
2. Come camping when you and your friends will have the campsite more or less to yourselves... the chart below will give you an idea of 2022's visitor density.
2a. Any dates with "around" 50 visitors — or less — will more or less guarantee you (and your friends — of reasonable number) the opportunity to camp together.
Yes, of course, you may either reschedule...
1. For “this” camping year... OR
2. For the following camping year
Yes, of course... with the following considerations:
There will be a non-refundable deposit for all bookings, amounting to either...
- £25... OR
- the balance, if the total booking fee is less than £25
- The non-refundable deposit may be applied to an alternate camping visit anytime until the end of October of the following year.
a. From the “out side” of a fence – Maybe... but even then be vigilant and cautious
b. From the “in side” of a fence – No! Children should never be in a field with livestock, regardless of whether or not they are accompanied by an adult.
c. Visiting / feeding... lambs, chickens and dogs can be arranged, talk to Dave the Farmer.
No matter "how well trained" you know your dogs to be — Health and Safety as well as Public Safety guidelines require all dogs to be on leads in public spaces such as our campsite.
There is a specified "off leash" area to the west of the campsite in Douglas Wood.
As outlined in our Camping Terms & Conditions:
- Dogs must be kept under control at all times.
- Dogs must be kept on a leash in the campsite.
- All fouling must be picked up and deposited in a rubbish bin.
- For the safety of yourselves, your dogs and our animals, do not take dogs near livestock, cows and calves or sheep.
