Polly sleeps 2 adults in a double bed and 2 children on request on a fold-down sofa bed.  

Situated halfway between the beautiful, rugged moorland of Exmoor and the dramatic coastlines of North Devon, you'll really be spoiled for choice if you want to venture out for the day.  

The lorry conversion has been a labour of love for owners Arron and Nicki, their 2 children Ollie and Poppy who live nearby on their family smallholding. Where possible, they have utilised recycled materials from their farm so that every inch of the lorry tells a story. They've created a very private glamping experience based around balance, fun, peace and tranquillity; in a secluded location, it offers many little luxuries and conveniences to make you feel truly welcome. You'll have the chance to switch off completely and hear nothing but the birdsong, distant church bells and occasional animal life if you're looking for a romantic short break.

Polly is situated a short 200m walk over a flat field to make sure you are in the most secluded and private of corners. The owners will be on hand to help with transporting your luggage if required. 

Cook on the open fire; the owners invite guests to take a little of what they fancy as they pass the vegetable patch on their way to the lorry or to collect their own eggs from the chickens and ducks down at the farm. If you don't feel like cooking, 3 fields away via a footpath and a few stiles, you'll get to the village of Chittlehampton where there is a great pub serving home-cooked food and real ales. For larger families, 2 additional children are welcome to pitch their own tent beside the Horsebox.

Polly is situated in a terrific area, being halfway between the beautiful, rugged moorland of Exmoor and the dramatic coastlines of North Devon, so you'll really be spoiled for choice if you want to venture out for the day. Eating out nearby The Bell at Chittlehampton is just 3 fields away via a footpath. They use local produce from local suppliers and here you can enjoy delicious home-cooked meals in either the main bar, where there is always a great atmosphere or the comfortable, light and airy dining conservatory complemented by the garden views.

The menu includes local steaks supplied by a nearby farm, a choice of seafood, homemade pies, various vegetarian options and of course a number of delicious sweets. They also have a great Kids’ menu available.

South Molton – The gateway to Exmoor has a thriving marketplace with twice-weekly markets held in the main square. These markets are a great way to sample some of the area’s acclaimed local produce, with producers offering everything from homegrown vegetables, locally prepared sausages and local fish. The square itself is surrounded by a number of small, independent shops, the fronts of which remain largely unchanged, along with many other historical buildings. A very pretty town and well worth a visit.

There are various eateries in and around the town. South Molton has really built a reputation for the quality of its cafés, the majority of which serve locally sourced food and are wonderful places to stop and refresh while exploring. They are especially welcomed by those who have spent the day on Exmoor, as the town is just on the edge of the National Park. Even if you haven’t been having an adventure, the cafes are friendly and warm and offer a great place to while away the hours. With a programme of lively events throughout the year, there’s always something going on in South Molton – from vintage rallies to celebrations of the town’s agricultural heritage.

Beaches

Saunton offers a vast stretch of sand and beach and is within a 30 min drive, it has a large car park however it does get very busy during the summer months. But if you come out of season you may well get a very peaceful sunset walk.

Croyde is also within half an hours drive and is a smaller cove and more sheltered; it also has a large car park and toilet facilities.

Putsborough is a 45 min drive away, a real beauty spot if you can be bothered to walk the very steep path/ steps down to the beach, but it's worth it. Westward Ho - about a 25 min drive away.
