Foxgloves in Hedgerows

Foxgloves in Hedgerows

 

The unmistakable flowering spikes of Foxgloves are known for both a reminder of the lazy days of summer and of course their infamous poisonous nature. These high pink flowers can be seen between June and September. Foxgloves can be found all over, in woodlands, gardens, moorland, coastal cliffs and many of North Devon's country lanes.

Foxgloves have large, flat leaves that form the base of the plant, and tall, upright flower spikes. The tube-shaped, pink flowers arranged around the stem are unmistakable. Foxgloves are an excellent source of nectar and pollen for all kinds of insects including bumblebees, moths and Honey Bees.

To encourage wildlife around the campsite we have planted several native flower species in our wildflower meadow and nature trail to provide essential nectar for bees and butterflies.

Superb Site and helpful staff

Stayed for a week on site in our Fifth Wheel mid April. Excellent site facilities, clean and spacious.

The Warden and staff made us very welcome and were extremely helpful especially when we were trying to put up our awning for the first time! The site was quiet at this time which suited us.

Pitches are nicely spaced out, many surrounding the fishing lake. Recommend the walk from the site to join the South Coastal route. Easy access to Mortehoe and Woolacombe beach.

For off road easy cycling - not too far from Braunton, Barnstaple or Bideford where you can access the Tarka trail. We also enjoyed the golf at Saunton. With so much on offer and a lovely site we will definitely try and return.
