Braunton Burrows, Lobb Fields

Five reasons to escape to Lobb Fields this autumn

Missed your summer holiday this year? It’s not too late to book an autumn staycation by the sea in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK.

Lobb Fields Caravan and Camping Park will be open until November, so you can relish the unspoilt beauty of the North Devon coast without the summer crowds. Here’s what you can look forward to during your stay

World-class beaches

Lobb Fields is located within close proximity of some of the UK’s best beaches. Saunton Sands – set within a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve – is a couple of minutes’ drive from the campsite and renowned for its miles of golden beach, stunning dune system and longboard-friendly waves. A few minutes further is surfy Croyde and, just beyond it, Woolacombe Beach, a sensational three-mile stretch which was recently ranked in the Top 25 Beaches in the World by TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice Awards.

Covid-secure campsite

Conscious of our duty of care to visitors and our team, we’ve implemented tight safety measures on the camping park, so you can feel at ease while holidaying. We like to think of Lobb Fields as a safe haven, tucked away as it is in a peaceful pocket of the Devonshire countryside.

We’ve got plenty of space for large families, couples and solo explorers. Find out more about how we’re maintaining social distancing and adhering to guidelines here.

Incredible watersports

It’s no wonder autumn is a popular time for surf enthusiasts, stand-up-paddleboarders and wild swimmers to visit Lobb. The sea is at its warmest, the beaches less busy and the sunsets simply sublime. And, thanks to our prime location near excellent surfing spots, our camping park is an excellent base to return to after carving up the waves.

Dolphins and seals

If you’re after an active holiday, North Devon has it covered. Mountain biking, climbing, superb cycling trails, beginner and intermediate walking tours over Exmoor National Park and more await you. It’s no wonder North Devon was recently named England’s Adventure Coast.

The region is also home to incredible flora and fauna and this summer many Lobb visitors spotted seals while rambling across Morte Point, and sped alongside dolphins on the Ilfracombe Sea Safari.

Great restaurants and bars

Lobb Fields is just a five-minute walk from the charming village of Braunton, which is crammed with quirky and independent restaurants, shops, delis, bars and cafes.

A few finds we especially recommend visiting are: Hearbreak Hotel Coffee for an exceptional cup of speciality coffee and doughnuts; Squires Fish and Chip Restaurant for award winning crisp cod in batter (with mushy peas, naturally), AYKA Rum Bar for evening drinks; and Wanderlust Life for cool handcrafted jewellery.
