With a young family ourselves, we could think of nothing better than opening our fields for those that want to stay somewhere, with a breathtaking view that stretches to Haldon Forest across the Teign Valley.
Our licence to operate was granted by the Freedom Camping Club, which is free to join for all campers, you can find more information here.
We are no longer a working farm but an up and coming smallholding. with three generations living here (including our dear Dad who, if you are lucky enough to meet, is as Devonian as they come)
We are always on-site busy with the chores of country life.
We offer basic facilities, i.e. a field and Devon's finest Tap Water. A few handy extras, like our"Tea Shed" plus shed loos and two hot showers cabin, every pitch with a stunning view and all within a two-minute walk of the Palk Arms.
Feral children are welcome that wish to run off some steam, with laps around the field. Their well-behaved owners are also welcome along with friendly dogs.
Our ethos is about bringing camping, back to a time, where you made your own fun, parents could actually relax, with a real visit to the beautiful Devon countryside. A space where memories are made!
WATER RECEPTACLES AND A LIGHT SPRINKLING
We have a shower cabin, which has two family-size shower rooms with, toilets, basins and benches in them, we have built them this way, so if you have a family and need to keep them contained, you can attempt to make yourself feel alive without worrying.
We have two more toilets (in sheds) with basins near the shower blocks, small but perfectly formed.
Please note that our showers are located 80 metres from pitches and down a slope
Livestock Friendly Dogs' are welcome, a special bin for doggie matters is provided. Leads may be necessary at busy times.
Due to our site having unallocated pitches and welcoming kids and dogs, we can not guarantee a space to camp away from them
STABLE WITH A TABLE
Honesty Shop is open 24 hours a day, in High Season (July & August) Low Stock at other times. There's a freezer to store your ice-packs in here and a communal firdge, as well as the bags of logs
Our little Tea shed, near the pitches, is where you can do your dishes. Tourist info is also in here with a large ordnance survey map on the wall.
THE LOCAL PUB
The local pub "The Palk Arms" is a two-minute walk and a 10-minute crawl back if you decide to sample the fine Devon Wine or the local Ale.
PLease note they are closed for food on Sunday evenings and Monday's
We don't have EHU but we do have an electric point near the shower block, so campers can blow up air beds and charge a power bank or phone, this is free for campers.
DO WE HAVE WIFI?
No, this is Hennock, we are lucky to get broadband at the house but the mobile signal is good and 3G/4G seems good too, will be the year 2099 before we get considered for Fibre optic we may install WIFI then
Devon's finest Tap Water is provided. Three tap's for drinking are dotted around the field, however, any tap you find here on your travels around the site is safe for drinking
We have a Chemical Disposal Point, it is hidden as it's ugly so just ask and we will point it out
We don't allocate pitch sizes, bell tents and family tents, come in all shapes and sizes now, so as long as you keep at least 6 meters between you and your camping neighbour we won't tell you where to pitch. You can park next to your pitch too, please no rally type doughnuts in the field though.
If you are coming as a family or friends group, let us know when you book
CHILDREN'S PLAY AREA
At the bottom of the camping field, our little cherubs decided they would share their play things with other children, for the Under 6's (Supervision is a must) swings , little slide and various battered toys on four wheels.
There is a climbing frame and a trampoline, for bigger kids at the top of the field, again supervision is a must and used at campers own risk.
We don't have a business waste collection, take your landfill rubbish home with you, we will happily recycle bottles, cans and cardboard, food, plastics. PLEASE SEPARATE INTO BINS PROVIDED. We can't take broken chairs, beds, tents or kitchen sinks.
