  • Small family-run Devon site on the edge of the Blackdown Hills
  • Exeter and south coast beaches within a half-hour drive
  • Easy access from the M5 at Cullompton; walk to a pub and farm shop
Whether you fancy fishing, horse-drawn barge trips or climbing tors, Postwood Gardens Touring Campsite and Country Cabins makes for a fine base. This place is a small and peaceful family-run mid Devon site on the edge of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and five minutes’ drive from Cullompton. The name Cullompton may be familiar to frequent travellers along the M5, and indeed this site is a handy stopover just a few minutes’ drive from the motorway (or indeed from the A303/A30, 15 minutes’ drive away). That said, there’s plenty around to keep you occupied for several days if you choose to settle down for a longer break – this site is in prime position for surfing, fishing, moorland hikes, climbing the tors, beach days, family attractions, cycling outings… Handy amenities are easy to come by too, as Cullompton has a high street full of independent shops, a farmers’ market and a couple of supermarkets. Closer to home, there’s a farm shop in Fordmore or the pub and shop/post office in Kentisbeare, all within walking distance. Facilities here are simple, as you’d expect from a small site, but guests have access to male and female toilet and shower blocks, a chemical disposal point and a recycling area.

Electric grass pitch

Liked: Basic but perfectly adequate (chemical toilet area needs a tidy up) but perfect location for our trip for a two night stopover, level pitch, nice and quiet - perfect

Disliked: As mentioned, the old washing up area needs binning and the chemical toilet emptying area needs a tidy up please

Electric grass pitch

Liked: A super, no frills campsite, with a quiet and peaceful setting. Friendly owner and great chickens for company too! The perfect space to relax and unwind. Local amenities were excellent as well, with a couple of good, friendly pubs in the nearby villages and a farm shop too!

Local attractions

It might be that you’re a savvy fisher already or you’re looking to dip your toes in for the first time. Either way, with Goodiford Mill Fishery (five minutes’ drive) practically around the corner, you’ll be well-set here. It’s just one of a few places close by that make up a unique set of holiday activities – these include the working Coldharbour Mill’s interactive museum (10 minutes), driving real-life diggers at Diggerland Devon (10 minutes) or the family-friendly assault course challenge on The Bear Trail (10 minutes). These activities already make some good action for any kids in your group, but Crealy Theme Park (20 minutes) has much more on that front, as does a good horse-drawn barge trip down the Tiverton Canal (15 minutes) or a detour to the entertainment facilities in Exeter city centre (25 minutes). A natural playground can be found at Sidmouth beach (half an hour). There’s kayaking or canoeing rental here but for cycling and walking (off the coastal path, that is), Exmoor National Park (35 minutes) is a sound choice. Historical sites also live on around here and that includes the National Trust’s Killerton (15 minutes), a huge 18th-century estate, and the Victorian Knightshayes Court (20 minutes), both royally good for walks and picnics.
