Jack’s Patch


Great Jackleigh Farm

Welcome to Jack’s Patch

Delve deeper into East Devon with a stay at Jack’s Patch at Great Jackleigh Farm, a pop up campsite set on a gently sloping field overlooking the Axe valley.

This peaceful site is part of a working farm, which reverts back to agricultural use when our guests have returned home. In a peaceful location the little noise there is comes from livestock grazing in the neighboring fields or the background hum of agricultural machinery.

Discover Our Campsite

With back to basics, but well-maintained facilities, all pitches have access to an old barn for shade on hot days (or shelter on wet ones), showers, toilets and a washing-up area. Guests who’d rather not use the shared facilities are welcome to bring a portable toilet for personal use, or you can hire one subject to availability.

Firepits are welcome, and wood is sold on site. Barbeques are welcome where care is taken, with disposable items placed in a designated area.

Come and Pitch up!

Camping Pitches

Priced per pitch per night and including two people, you will have ample room to choose where to pitch up with your tent, trailer tent, small motorhome, or campervan.


Bring a gazebo or an awning. Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome, with a maximum of two dogs per pitch. Extra cars or motorbikes are requested to park off the field in a designated parking area.

Bell Tents

Our 5M Bell tents accommodate up to four people very comfortably, and can be hired furnished or unfurnished. Please note that pets are not permitted within the Bell tents.

Book Soon!

Our summer season is now over and the gates to Jack’s Patch are closed. We will be opening again in 2022, with dates to be confirmed in the New Year.
