Camping at Bredy Farm

The Orchard and Mead Campsites are nestled within the heart of the valley and separated by the meandering River Bride but also connected via a footbridge. We offer over-18’s rustic camping near the beach for the best part of the year allowing the perfect place to get away, unwind and allow time to slow. Weekends get very lively but we can offer quieter camping from Sunday to Thursday.

The Orchard and Mead Campsites open April to October.
