General

  • Peaceful site set over 10 acres on the edge of an estuary village
  • Near the sands and nature reserve of Dawlish Warren beach
  • Fishing lake, level pitches and pub serving food half a mile away

No need to hunt for a tiny and peaceful Devon destination: here's teeny Hunters Lodge Caravan and Camping Site on the edge of the estuary village of Starcross, near the sands and nature reserve of Dawlish Warren beach.

Although it's listed as a tiny site with less than 10 pitches, it's over 10 acres of grounds so you could almost pretend to be surveying your own kingdom all the time when here. Once you're ready to go off exploring, public transport is close to hand for those who don't want to drive: the site is half a mile from Starcross Rail Station and coach stop and 15 minutes’ walk from the site to the Starcross passenger ferry to Exmouth.

Take the fishing rod and stride off to Hunters Lodge's own coarse fishing lake to see what you might land, or bring the dog for a wander around the 10 acres: pooches are welcome at Hunters Lodge all year round. Still fancy some fishing? There's a coarse fishery at nearby Exminster.

The level grass pitches at this friendly site come with excellent amenities including recycling and chemical disposal, drying facilities, shower block and washroom. For food, there are 28 ways of serving the River Exe mussels on offer at the Anchor pub half a mile down the road – better book for 28 days then…

Old buildings and castles are all around the area: 12th-century Powderham Castle lies just north of Starcross at the village of Kenton and there are more National Trust properties in Devon than anywhere else in the country. Topsham Museum, with period rooms, info on maritime history and exhibitions on local wildlife, is housed in 17th-century buildings overlooking the Exe Estuary.

The acclaimed beach of Dawlish Warren is almost on the doorstep for fairground rides, summer events and old seafront standby Punch and Judy. From here it’s a scenic stroll to the Dawlish Warren nature reserve on the mouth of the Exe Estuary, with visitor centre and free admission.

Taking the bikes along to Devon? The National Cycle Network Exe Estuary Trail goes from Dawlish to Exmouth and there’s more cycling through the woods at Haldon Forest Park, with a bike hire shop there if you’re not bringing your own wheels.
