Discover North Devon's Hele Valley

Family Fun

Holidays as they used to be

Timeless family adventures on the North Devon coast

For simple, heartfelt enjoyment—nothing beats a Great British seaside holiday. 

Remember the delicious fish n’ chips, refreshing salt breeze, and paddling in the breakers? 

You may not wear jellies at the beach anymore, but doesn’t it make you feel nostalgic? Whether you come as a couple, or with your kids, or the grandparents Hele Valley is cherished memories, past and future. 

Our family friendly five-star holiday park in Ilfracombe is right by the sea, a stroll away. We have camping, glamping, caravanning, lodges, and cottages nestled in a lush wooded valley. 

Here you can be free and easy, exploring rugged coast, heathered moor, and lots of exciting family attractions.

Hele Valley is your childhood returned.

Hidden Gem

Great little park, third time we have stayed here. The pitch was an excellent size for the caravan, awning, and car. Very quiet and tranquil, well kept, and clean ablutions. This site is a great base to explore North Devon from, with a good child friendly pub just outside, serving good food. The coastal path is close, either by Combe Martin or Ilfracombe. Overall an excellent stay with friendly staff, and we will be returning, thank you!

Fantastic Campsite

We booked an electric, grass pitch for one week but ended up staying a little longer. Such a lovely campsite, really well maintained with helpful and friendly staff. The shower and toilet block was the best we have seen in a campsite and always kept clean. Very quiet and peaceful. The local shop was very well stocked and reasonably priced with great staff.

Fantastic Service

We only stayed for one night to go to a wedding but they couldn’t do enough for us. They let us pitch our tent early which was splendid as we didn’t have a great deal of time, and when we tried to get a taxi and couldn’t, the girls that worked there offered to take all eight of us in their own cars. They really went the extra mile for us and refused to take any money (although we did force it upon them). Thank you.

Definitely returning next year

Our second visit here this year and it was just as good as the first. The staff were very friendly with a great knowledge of the area. The site was very clean and well maintained, and there was plenty of room for our van and awning. Excellent toilet blocks too, which were cleaned several times a day. Definitely will be returning next year. Thanks to all the staff for making us welcome.

Great place for a break with the dog

We spent a lovely week away at Hele Valley in one of the doggy friendly caravans. From arrival it was clear that standards are high here, the caravan was spotless and the park very well kept! There's a dog friendly beach five minutes walk away and plenty of local dog friendly pubs to offer a variety of food options.

Love the area, always plenty to do and see and a week of sunshine always helps!

Peaceful Haven

We stayed in a Hele Valley lodge Sept/Oct 2019 and it was outstanding. All the staff were very friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough to make our stay with them so enjoyable. We were a bit unlucky with the weather, however there are so many places in and around North Devon and being able to see the high tides in Ilfracombe was pretty spectacular. Our accommodation was so very clean and comfortable and we will certainly be returning next year and bringing our grandson.

A September to Remember...

Published: 04/09/2020

As the children finally return to school after their summer break, things naturally quieten down around here and September comes in like a mellow sigh of fresh air after the bustling, busy summer. It brings with it pleasantly warm weather, the noticeably warm seas, the first whiff of wood smoke,  the first hints of autumnal colour, sumptuous sunsets and the odd crisp cool morning…which all add up to the perfect time to visit North Devon.

The Problem with Plastic Pollution in Our Oceans

Published: 16/04/2020

The thing about plastic, is it’s one of the most useful materials ever invented, that (we’re discovering) shouldn’t have been. For the purposes of human civilisation, plastic is everlasting. This is what’s scary about it. We’ve created something that is perfectly non-biodegradable. Plastic can sit around for 1000 years before it degrades.
