Access Statement

Introduction to Yeatheridge farm caravan Park

Yeatheridge Farm Caravan Park is a family run touring caravan and camping park in rural Devon welcoming caravans, folding campers, tents and motorhomes. There are facilities such as bar, restaurant, shop, swimming pools, fishing lakes and horse riding. Wherever possible, these facilities are provided with access for all – including disabled guests.
Our team at Yeatheridge Farm aims to ensure all our guests enjoy our park and
facilities. If you need any assistance, either whilst planning your visit or during your stay, we would be delighted to help. Please contact us by telephone or email if you have any queries or requests regarding access to our facilities.

Pre arrival

We cater for tents, caravans and motor homes. We also have 4 hireable static caravans on site.
Reservations can be made by email, phone or post.
We can post a copy of our brochure and/or a copy of this access statement to you – large print available on request
Please specify any special needs on booking.
All documentation is mainly sent through email, allowing enlargement of font. If email is not available to you it can be sent via post in standard size, or larger font on request.
Part of the appeal of Yeatheridge Farm is its rural, isolated location. As a result, however, the site does not have convenient links to either the rail or bus public transport network. The nearest bus stop is 3 miles away at Witheridge. The nearest railway station is at Eggesford (6.6 miles).
Our shop is well stocked with most of your daily needs. Our nearest supermarkets are in the towns of Crediton (11 miles) and Tiverton (13 miles)
