Rolling, rolling, rolling

Although we are in ‘lock-down’ due to the Corona virus, the farming calendar still carries on. After a very wet winter here in Devon, we have had a dry spell of weather and all the farmers around have been busy in their fields preparing for turning out their cattle from their winter sheds by getting the grass to grow!

Some of the land here at Headon Farm has been let out to a nearby dairy farmer. Several weeks ago, he applied fertiliser to the ground but in a very considerate way with our caravan touring site visitors in mind! Instead of spreading the liquid fertiliser onto the ground (which would have caused a tremendous smell!) it was injected into the ground! This activates the nutrients quicker greatly reduces any of the ‘countryside’ aroma!

Following this process this week Richard has been rolling the land with his big eight-foot roller behind his tractor. This make the ground much less bumpy for the contractors who will take the grass crop off the fields back to the farm. By not shaking around the contractor’s equipment it is also less likely there will be breakdowns. The effect of rolling is the lovely stripes you can see and makes the farm look great. This year we have also rolled the caravan site as unusually we have no one here!

We look forward to when we can re-open and welcome everyone back to Headon Farm!

On your bike!

Attention Cyclists – get on your bike! 

Dust off that lycra and dig out those bicycle clips and bring your bike on holiday with you when you come to our Touring Site at Headon Farm!  We are a short cycle to the National Cycle RouteSustrans 3 where you can hop onto this fantastic network that starts down at Lands End and ends up in Bristol, taking in the beautiful countryside of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. 

If that sounds a bit too much pedal power the quiet lanes are fun to cycle at your own pace where you can take in the verdant Devon countryside just turn left or right from the touring site.  Take a picnic and stop off by a beautiful riverbank or visit the pretty churches that scatter the countryside. 

At Headon we are very often visited by cyclists and the back up teams on charity cycles from Lands End to John O’Groats….  A hot shower, BBQ and free Wi-Fi access to update progress at the end of a days cycling hits the mark and prepares the riders for the day ahead. 

We have also hosted a stop off point for the Childrens Hospice South West Charity Bike Ride – a wonderful event for an amazing cause. 

So however you enjoy cycling Headon Farm campsite is a great base to get on your bike! 

An ‘in-tents’ question!

‘Do you take tents?’ we are often asked.  We would like to let everyone know that at on our Touring Site we welcome campers and their tents!

During the last Whitsun bank holiday our Site was very busy with families enjoying the school holiday. We had a late request from a couple of families with their dogs who would like to camp on the Site but didn’t know if they could stay with us as they were camping with tents.  We were pleased to welcome the group in our camping grounds. The smell of barbequing pervaded the air, the children were having fun running freely and safely and the dogs were on the lookout for dropped sausages!

All campers in tents have an EHU if required, free use of the shower/toilet block and free Wi-Fi.

We look forward to welcoming campers at Headon Farm, in caravans, motorhomes, tents, campervans and trailer tents to stay on our camp grounds and fields!

Motorhomes – Home from home

Travelling with your motorhome means you can surround yourself with all your home comforts and have the flexibility to take whichever road you please.

Many motorhome owners are delighted when we tell them that Headon Farm is open all year, using our motorhome friendly hardstanding pitches, all with EHU.  Our wide entrance gateway gives easy access to our Touring Site.

In the summer many motorhomes like to pitch on grass, but whatever your pitch preference you will always have stunning views of the Devon countryside and we have amazing sunsets!  You may be lucky to catch a glimpse of the wildlife such as foxes, deer and badgers in the surrounding fields.  Alternatively you may have brought your bikes to cycle the many off road cycle tracks that are accessible from our Touring Site.

Whatever your preference the peace and quiet at Headon Farm will help you relax – we look forward to welcoming you and your motorhome!
