Experience our spacious grounds on your next touring and camping holiday in North Devon. Our campsite is in the heart of this beautiful area, based in the grounds of the old manor house and surrounded with space and fresh air.

We are pleased to announce that for the 2017 summer season we will be opening our new touring and camping area, The Orchard. Pitches are now bookable for holidays starting from the 1st July. 


The Orchard will host a variety of pitches on top of our existing standard pitches.

Standard Pitch

This is available as either grass or hard standing. On the existing touring and camping area these pitches are 10 x 10 metres and all have electric hook-ups. In The Orchard these pitches will increase in size to 15 x 12 metres and will have a TV point as well and a 16 amp electric hook-up. 

Super Pitch

As with our standard pitch, the super pitch is available as a grass or hard standing pitch. With 16 amp electric, TV and water, this pitch should make your holiday that little bit more relaxed.  

Posh Pitch 

Our Posh Pitches all of which are hard standings offer a little extra comfort during your stay. Not only do you have 16 amp electric, TV and water, These pitches offer grey water disposal points and a picnic bench.   

En-suite Pitch 

This pitch is the most luxurious pitch available. Make your stay more civilized with this pitch as it provides your very own private shower, toilet, sink and washing up area in a cedar clad cabin on your pitch. You are also provided with 16 amp electric, TV point, water tap, grey water disposal and a picnic bench. The en-suite pitches are available as grass or hard standing. We currently have 2 of each pitch type.   

The Walled Garden

We will still be using the walled garden as a camping area for small tents wanting a standard pitch. The old walled garden is great for small tents with sheltered level pitches and located close to the pool. We also have a small covered kitchen area here for those campers that arrive on foot or by bike (ask about our special lower rates if you’re arriving via the Tarka Trail!). All pitched in the walled garden have electric hookups.


On the other side of our driveway we have the original terraced area which is particularly good for caravanners, with several hard standings, all pitches are level with electric hookups. This area will be replaced by The Orchard in July. We also have a paddock area which has no marked out pitches; we use this area for overflow camping but it is also great for large groups.

Once you have set up on your pitch, there is plenty to keep you busy. Bring your bikes to ride around the park or along the Tarka Trail, swim in our outdoor solar heated pool, and if you forget your football or cricket kit then get them from the shop in reception and let the games begin. There are also a great many attractions in the area for you to enjoy from shopping to walking, and arts and crafts to theme parks.

In the evening you can bring a barbecue to use, just take care with it please. To relax and meet new people, pop over to our bar (opening hours vary during the year) where you can sit out and enjoy the sunset on the veranda.


Here at Smytham Manor, we’re family run and understand the value of family camping holidays, the freedom of allowing your kids to play outside, and the enjoyment it can bring to the whole family. With this in mind, we ask that you please respect other visitors by not playing any loud music. While we do not provide entertainment, there is always plenty to do, so if you just want to enjoy the countryside and open space then come to us for your next touring or camping holiday in North Devon!
