Stowford Farm Meadows was established in 1978 by Winston Rice to provide family camping in Devon. Forty years on the emphasis is still on quality and customer satisfaction.
Over time our site has developed into a family holiday destination with a large range of accessible facilities including shops, bars, swimming pool, horse riding and self catering cottages. We endeavour to provide these facilities with 'access for all'. All dogs are welcome throughout the site. Generous grass and hardstanding pitches all benefit from electric hook-up and each meadow has its own amenity block with accessible toilets and showers. There is free Wifi across the site.
