Iris Hideaway

Iris Hideaway is located 1.2 miles from the Tarka Trail (route 3, just south of Bideford) and allows exclusive use for up to 5 tents by the River Yeo on a daily basis.


The Hideaway is close to the Tarka Trail, popular with walkers and cyclists and is on the road to Bradworthy with River and Yeo Valley views which is also a very popular cycle route which reaches the Tamar Lakes, just into Cornwall .

Uniquely once this site is booked by your family or group, you would enjoy virtually exclusive use, as we would not take another camping booking and the only other day users may be holiday-makers staying in two nearby holiday cottages. It is especially suitable for a family or group to enjoy a semi wilderness experience and features a converted pump-house building for your day use. The building is off grid with solar powered lighting and is equipped with woodburner, camping stove and composting toilet. Fresh drinking water is provided in containers but there are no washing facilities.

The site is very beautiful and can be reached on foot or by cycle down a short but steep driveway, or alternative parking can be made available nearby by prior arrangement. There is a decked area overlooking the river, with BBQs, fire ring and large picnic table. Further seating is also provided. You are able to paddle, swim and fish at the riverbank. A lovely oasis to relax after a cycle ride on the Tarka trail!

Various local surfing beaches are some distance away, but you can stop off at Instow Beach just off the Tarka Trail during your cycle.

The nearby holiday cottages have been completed to a high standard and are well located for touring North Devon. They are available weekly from around £400. In the cottages, you can relax in the conservatory or sit on the raised patio in the garden overlooking the valley.

A pub is within walking or cycling distance.

Exclusive camping at Iris Hideaway is available at £10 per person per night, with dogs also permitted.
