Lose yourself in the Devon countryside: a trio of gorgeous wagons and an enchanted living room in the forest are all yours

In a sleepy Devon meadow, on the edge of a wood, and next to a bubbling stream, three lovingly restored Gypsy caravans together make up the Vintage Vardos. Gavin and Jemma, the owners of Fisherton Farm, have transformed the trio into a gathering place just right for a group of grown-ups, a family or two on a jolly, a hen party with a difference... The wagons are all stars in their own right: the beautiful interiors of Big Ted, Red Rum and Little Gem are stylish, with a dash of glitz, and they can all sleep two adults plus two or more smaller ones (depending on size). The secluded glade feels perfectly private; climb down from the cosy pull-out beds to breakfast sizzling over the campfire, and a full day of exploration and adventure ahead. Collect the eggs, pick your own salad and veg in season, or get Jemma to rustle up a breakfast or dinner hamper with produce from the farm. Eat together around the enormous hand-crafted dining table, try the hot outdoor shower, and enjoy the peace of the truly inspired outdoor living room.

Fisherton Farm itself dates back to the 16th century, and is a working North Devon farm in picturesque countryside near the river Taw. You're within easy reach of wonderful day walks, good pubs, the Tarka Trail cycle path, Exmoor National Park and some of the best beaches in Britain. Children – and anyone with an imagination – will love it here. Try the rope swing over the stream!

Hen parties: Gather your best friends round the campfire at Fisherton Farm - it's perfect for a get-together in the fresh air, and can be fully catered, with activities such as woodland yoga arranged during your stay. For more information, see 'Things to do', call 01172 047 830 or email enquiries@canopyandstars.co.uk.

Our guests say...

"Our stay at Fisherton Farm was quite frankly the BEST holiday we have ever had! There were three family's, 6 adults and 6 children ranging from 2 to 6 years old. The children ran themselves ragged in the woods and meadow. They LOVED the rope swing and damming the little stream with mud! And because we knew they couldn't get out of our little slice of paradise the adults had time to sit back and unwind around the camp fire. Most days breakfast didn't finish until midday. utter relaxation. Also I can not praise Gavin and Jemma enough. 2 nicer people you couldn't hope to meet. They really made our holiday something special. Nothing was too much trouble for them and Jemma's cooking is just DIVINE!"



"We had an amazing time. Jemma and Gavin were so friendly and helpful, even dropping us off at the local pub and picking us up after our meal. They are perfect hosts, talking us through how everything operates and making us feel very welcome. The caravans are fantastic and beautifully restored. The whole site has been so well thought out and designed to perfection. We will be visiting again."



"What a fantastic holiday. Gorgeous place - fantastic hosts Gavin and Jemma could not have been more welcoming. Great value for money and would recommend this unique quirky holiday to everybody. All three Vardos immaculate and the outdoor cooking area was perfect as the attention to detail ( from candles to cooking pots!) was faultless."


Rion and Chris

"We had a wonderful time; the setting for the vardos (caravans) and vardos themselves were beautiful with every detail taken care of. The shower was a particular highlight as it had a great view down the valley. Our hosts, who live on and run the farm, were extremely helpful and welcoming."



"My husband and I took my family (my 27 yr old sister, her boyfriend, my 25 yr old brother) to The Vintage Vardos as a surprise...their reaction surpassed my expectations! The hosts, Jemma and Gavin, are attentive, friendly and very welcoming. They have literally thought of everything that you may need to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. It was, we all agreed, our best family holiday in years...we enjoyed it so much that we have agreed that it is to become a yearly occurrence. I would recommend The Vintage Vardos to anybody (in fact, I already have - to everyone I know!) Don't hesitate...book it!"



"Had a wonderful time with two other families; we wanted to experience camping with a bit of luxury and Jemma & Gavin provided just that and more.  They were endlessly friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay comfortable and happy.  They're natural hosts who obviously enjoy this new part of their farming business and deserve to be fully booked!  Our children had an absolute ball and could play on their own in safety."
