Description

North Devon boasts some of the most beautiful countryside and farmland in the South of England. Parks such as Acorn Farm offer families, couples and solo holidaymakers a wonderful opportunity to explore the wider region at their own pace.  The management at the park has focused on developing a neighbourhood that is quiet, laid-back, yet full of all the modern conveniences and facilities you would otherwise expect from daily living.  Acorn Farm Park is a very popular family haunt, and not just because it is so close to many of the county's most interesting sights and attractions.


The park is based in the local village of Dolton, which visitors can head to for daily amenities and groceries.  The park itself is open to visitors on a holiday home basis, meaning that anyone looking to establish a foothold in the region can look to buy an exclusive pitch or property for use across the year.  Acorn Farm Park is situated far enough away from noise and hassle, but close enough for convenient links and facilities.  An early viewing is always a good idea should properties become available.  


About Acorn Farm Park


Acorn Farm Park is a close-knit holiday home community.  Holiday homeowners will benefit from spectacular views of the rolling North Devonshire countryside. Not only that, but the park itself is kept to meticulously high standards.  This means couples, families and solo travellers can head to properties here season after season and always expect a wonderful welcome.


Acorn Farm offers a peaceful pace of living with views of some of the county's best-loved retreats and countryside trails.  For example, visitors can take in the breath-taking Torridge Valley, while relaxing in their own private lodges and static homes.  The maintenance team always makes sure to keep the park looking wonderful.  Park staff and maintenance support are always on hand to help, meaning that there will never be any need for visitors to worry.  It is always worth asking park staff and management about local sites of interest, too. 


Acorn Farm Park offers 12-month seasons.  That means homeowners and renters will be able to head out here month after month.  Devon is a county which looks spectacular all year round, meaning that many holidaymakers may wish to venture out to their own private plot outside of the summer months.  Rest assured, the properties and pitches here are all well-prepared for the cold snap and autumn downfall.  It is always worth asking park management for more details.  Even better for dog walkers is the fact that the site is open to pets, though it is a good idea to call ahead and check amenities first.


Acorn Farm Park is a unique holiday getaway for many people.  It is closely linked to B-roads and local villages, which means that there is always a sense of independence supported here.  However, many people will love being able to venture out into the rural countryside just to escape for a while.  The park is secure, and holiday homeowners will have access to their own plot safety features and locking.  


The park is a great foothold for anyone of any age who wants to explore Devon in greater detail.  With many attractions and natural sites of interest close by, the park offers unique opportunities for couples and families to take in the surroundings.  In addition, they will never have to worry about the upkeep of the gardens or the state of the local neighbourhood, as it is carefully managed and maintained whatever the weather.  Lodges here bring people closer together, however, there is a strong sense of privacy here.  Anyone looking to get away from it all in complete privacy will never have to worry about sharing their own facilities.  However, it is always a good idea for new homeowners or visitors to get to know their neighbours. 


The Location


The location of Acorn Farm Park is one of its most attractive features.  It is in a semi-rural position, which means holidaymakers can enjoy the local and modern amenities of village and town living, while still being able to gaze across the gorgeous countryside.  In addition, visitors can always take on stunning local walks and trails just a few footsteps away.  It is hugely convenient for anyone keen to walk and ramble around Devon at their own pace.


Finding Acorn Farm Park is simple, whether through GPS or map.  It is based just inside the sleepy village of Dolton; which drivers can access via the B3217.  This breaks off from the A3124 near the River Torridge and is close to the main road via the A386.  Acorn Farm Park is hugely desirable in this respect as it is a little more secluded than other parks in the region.  However, visitors can also reach the site via the A377, heading West through Burrington and Riddlecombe.


Any visitors who don't have access to a vehicle can always use public transport.  This is not too far away from the park; however, holidaymakers can always simply stroll into Dolton itself.  Dolton has plenty of bus links to across the wider area, which means visitors can take in the wider region on four wheels if they wish.  However, many visitors choose to take a good look around the park and Dolton itself before heading further afield.


In any case, the location of the park is hugely desirable.  It is neither too close to main roads, nor too far away from everyday convenience.  Holidaymakers will always be able to come back to their lodges and properties at the end of a long day of adventuring, safe in the knowledge that they will have complete peace and quiet.  The park's team has built their site here to offer such a balance.  It is what helps to make Acorn Farm Park so desirable to so many people.


Those interested should look at our full map of the region, too, for more information.  This will help visitors to plan their journeys to and from the park for the first time. 


The Local Area


Local Devon is brimming with wonderful sights and sounds.  This side of the county is home to spectacular heritage trails and historic sites of interest.  For example, the quaint and traditional town of Barnstaple is only a short distance via roads.  Barnstaple is well known for its castle and its markets, as well as for its exhibitions and many displays. 


Visitors to Acorn Farm Park will also be able to take in the many conveniences that the village of Dolton has to offer.  This means shops, hairdressing and restaurants are all within proximity.  Visitors who'd like to try the local pub and food scenes here are always welcome to head out of the park and to sample the fare at their leisure.  What's more, the food and drink scenes in Dolton and beyond focus on local appeal.  That means produce is all sourced from the nearby area.  It is a fantastic chance for many to sample a true taste of Devon.


Any true countryside and nature lovers will also want to head out towards some of England's best-loved National Parks.  The imposing, rolling greenery of Dartmoor is only a short drive away, as is the sister park of Exmoor.  Both parks make for fantastic days out for all the family, as well as for those who simply want to take their time taking in the local nature. 


City amenities and attractions are close by, too.  For example, the city of Exeter is only a short drive or public transport link away.  It is a city with a difference, in that while it is busy by nature, it is very laid-back, and brimming with wonderful history and heritage.  Travel to the South, and visitors can take in the city of Plymouth, which is similarly laid-back, and just as curious in terms of history.


Why Choose Acorn Farm Park?


Acorn Farm Park remains a clear choice for many couples, solo travellers and families who want to get to know Devon a little better.  The park offers a lot of semi-rural conveniences thanks to its position.  Holidaymakers are only a short walk from local village facilities, and what's more, they are always on the doorstep of some of the area's most wonderful countryside sights and sounds.  Being able to move so close to the country will appeal to many people.
