General

  • Exclusive and private 30-acre campsite with riverside stays
  • Peaceful, private and hidden away from modern life
  • Shower and toilet block, firepit area and small shop

Nymet Mill is an ancient and secret place, lying at the bottom of a hidden valley and bordering both the rivers Taw and Yeo. The exclusive camp fields for tents are located on the banks of the rivers. The site is away from the traditional, overcrowded resorts and destinations in the southwest and accommodates only two camp pitches for visitors at any one time in a back-to-basics, fuss-free camping and outdoors environment. The site is a perfect spot for photography or fly fishing with over half a mile of rivers.

Pitches are grass and there is a simple, but comfortable, shower and toilet block on site with eco-loos and a gas-powered shower. The site is very laid back and open to people pitching up in your own camping field, very private and never crowded. There is a firepit area for people to use and a small on-site basics shop and estate office.

Home to 30 acres of hills, secluded river paddocks, private woodland and river frontage, Nymet Mill is the best place to relax, unwind and enjoy some of Devon's finest landscape and natural surroundings: the perfect place to lose yourself.

    Everything really, we had a river paddock all to ourselves, it was so private and felt like we were alone the whole time. Perfect for those who like 'real' camping. Tom was also incredibly helpful and welcoming!
