Leadstone Camping


A unique site at Dawlish Warren... if you are looking for a proper old-fashioned, family owned campsite with modern facilities, you’ve just found one! We have just over seven acres of grassland in a natural secluded bowl with plenty of level pitches for tents, motorhomes and caravans, many with electric hook-up.

Leadstone Camping is just a 10-minute walk to the splendid beach and sand dunes at Dawlish Warren which has held the prestigious Blue Flag for 16 consecutive years. We are a traditional, uncommercialised camping site beautifully located in south Devon, and one where our family have built a reputation for our friendly, personal approach and are always ready to help should you have any questions or problems. We were established in 1974 and can celebrate decades of family camping seasons!

A recent survey of visitors who return every year showed that our policy of making small improvements to ensure that the site stays quiet, friendly and uncommercialised is just what they require. We are not perfect but we all try very hard and enjoy caring for our visitors. We always have a famously friendly staff to help you and think we have earned a healthy reputation for good value and good service.

While we are primarily a site for tents and motorhomes we are also licenced to accept touring caravans. Moving with the times we redeveloped our services block in 2012 which now has state-of-the-art facilities. Milk, eggs, bread, bacon, etc and Calor gas, Camping Gaz and freezer pack hire are all available from reception.

We have a children's adventure playground to keep the little ’uns amused and for those who just can’t get away from it all wifi is available across the site at a small charge.

Every year the site is inspected by English, German and Dutch inspectors and we remain a top rated three-star site. One inspector commented that we are 'a very attractive simple park employing high standards of care', when asked if we should alter anything replied, 'Leave it just as it is'. Enough said!

Dawlish Warren is renowned for its good weather. Average temperatures of well over 70°F are not uncommon. On top of that the Dawlish air quality has been recorded as 'among the best in the country'.

There is a 5mph speed limit on the site. Our reputation as a 'quiet' site has been earned, so 'no noise after 11pm' means exactly what it says.

Andrew and Sarah look forward to welcoming you.

To ensure everyone’s enjoyment please consider the following before booking...

If you or any member of your family are unwilling to conform to the following simple rules, or are looking for a different social atmosphere, we respectfully request you make a booking at another site

There is a 5mph speed limit on the site.

Our reputation as a 'quiet' site has been earned, so 'no noise after 11pm' means exactly what it says. Please be thoughtful during the day and evening. (Most visitors are in bed by 10pm!).

Changeover time is 12 noon so it can be busy on peak weekends! No arrivals after 10pm.

Quiet please: no radios, TV, etc. after 10.30pm. No swearing!

Barbecues: on legs or disposable are fine (ask at Reception for bricks to sit it on). Open fires, fire baskets, braziers, etc are not allowed.

Dogs: we are all dog lovers here. Bertie and Jack, our Springer spaniels, are very popular with our younger visitors; however, following an incident elsewhere in the area we have reluctantly reviewed our 'dogs welcome' policy and we are sorry but we cannot admit breeds such as Staffordshire bull terriers and rottweilers. Irresponsible owners are to blame for this move, so if you have one of these or similar please leave your pet with a friend or in a kennel. Well-behaved dogs are allowed on the strict understanding that they are kept on leads at all times and exercised off the site. Please pick up any 'whoopsies'! Dogs must not be left unattended.

BB guns are not allowed.
