    Disliked: 

    Roads on site would be better tarred, gravel roads not conducive to wheel chairs leading to the toilet block, lack of lighting, low level lights on road ways would suffice.

    Really nice site, good clean facilities, friendly welcoming staff and fantastic location just a few minutes walk from Dawlish Warren, with excellent local transport links to Torquay, Paignton etc. Excellent base if you want to explore surrounding areas, but also great if you just want to chill on your pitch for a few days!

Directions


Travelling by car
Leave the M5 motorway at Junction 30 (Exeter) and take the signposted road A379 to Dawlish. As you approach Dawlish (approximately 11 miles), turn left on the brow of the hill onto Warren Road, signposted Dawlish Warren. Our site is half a mile on the right.

Satnav users: as you approach Dawlish from Exeter, do not use Week Lane as it is very narrow. Stay on the A379 and turn left into Warren Road just over the crest, Leadstone Camping is 0.5 mile on the right.

Travelling by coach/bus
National Express’s scheduled coach network is easily the best value way to travel throughout the UK. Exeter is the nearest coach station then change onto the local Stagecoach service No 2 to Dawlish and change at Warren Road/ Marine Garage for the No 22 into Dawlish Warren (10 minutes' walk to us if you want to stretch your legs!). Ask for Leadstone Camping. The stop is at our entrance.

Travelling by train
Dawlish Warren is the closest station (about 10 minutes' walk) or jump on any bus heading to Dawlish, and ask for Leadstone Camping. Dawlish town station is well served by taxis and, of course, the bus.

Walking the coastal path
We are just 10 minutes' walk from the coast path at Dawlish Warren.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Dawlish Warren is a top place to be in Devon, partly for its safe clean beach and partly for its sand dunes leading onto 500-acre Dawlish Warren Nature Reserve, a hugely popular spot with birdwatchers and botanists.

Leadstone Camping's location makes it easy to get to most of Devon's attractions and it's simple to get from the site to wherever takes your fancy. Roads are relatively quiet for most of the year apart from in high season.

On foot, walk the half mile to the Warren (it's a safe stroll and suitable for prams) or to the South West Coast Path within ten minutes; it's also half a mile to the Exe Cycle Trail or the circular six-mile Dawlish Discovery Walk.

A mile away is the Exe Estuary – another top local spot and a hit for fishing, hiking, biking and birdwatching – and the town of Dawlish itself is a mile and a half away: look out for the famous black swans.

Also nearby is the harbour and two good pubs at Cockwood, two and a half miles away, and golf at Starcross before taking the ferry from here to Exmouth.

Shaldon, seven miles away, has another golf course and can be reached by ferry from the busy resort of Teignmouth.

For towns, take off to Exminster (nine miles; more golf), Torquay (10 miles), Newton Abbot (11 miles; racecourse and ancient market), Exeter (13 miles) and Paignton (13 miles; take the steam railway from here to Kingswear and Dartmouth).

For villages, have a cream tea and a tipple at Old Walls Vineyard at Bishopsteignton seven miles away, and crouch down to see the fab and award-winning model village at Babbacombe just outside Torquay.

Other very decent days out include fourteenth century Powderham Castle (five miles), the bike trail, birds of prey and butterfly walk at Haldon Forest Park (eight miles) and getting giddy at Crealy Great Adventure Theme Park.

Must see

  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (8.0 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (9.6 miles)
  • Living Coasts (9.9 miles)

National Trust

  • A la Ronde (3.9 miles)
  • Compton Castle (10.6 miles)
