Alan Rogers Review

Hele Valley is a well established park located a mile from Ilfracombe in a wooded valley and only a few minutes’ walk from Hele Bay beach. Here you will find quaint coves and a genuine smuggler’s cave. The park caters for tents, motorhomes and smaller caravans only, because of the difficult access. Of the 118 pitches, 50 are available for touring units and 30 are for tents. Some of the pitches are on terracing, strung out along a valley and surrounded by trees and hedges. All have 16A electricity, 16 are fully serviced and 16 have hardstanding. Parents must keep children away from the steep-sided stream running the length of the park.

This is a great centre for touring North Devon with Lynmouth, Porlock (Lorna Doone country), Exmoor, the pretty market town of Barnstaple and Great Torrington, famous for Dartington Glass. Nature lovers can enjoy walks on Exmoor or along the coast, including the Tarka Trail and, for bird watchers, Lundy Island is but a boat ride away (trips from Ilfracombe). A path leads from the park to nearby Chambercombe Manor with its association with Lady Jane Grey, a tunnel and a mysterious visitor – open to the public.


Modern heated toilet block provides all the usual facilities including those for babies and disabled visitors. Two adventure play areas. Play field. WiFi throughout (charged).

From Ilfracombe, take A399 east towards Combe Martin. With Ilfracombe pool on the left, go down hill for 400 yds. and, at brown Hele Valley sign, take sharp right turn (easier to approach from Combe Martin). Go down steep road and continue to T-junction (right-angled and narrow). Turn right to the park.
