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.
