Exeter View Stables: View from site

General

  • Relaxed, off-grid site with views over Devon’s hills towards Exeter
  • City centre a 10-min drive, Topsham 25 and Exmouth beach 35 mins away
  • Communal firepit; free-range eggs and firewood for sale on site

A lovely lookout across to Devon’s capital city is indeed a rather big draw at Exeter View Stables, a relaxed and friendly site in the leafy surrounds of this cracking county. If you’re one for eco-friendly expeditions, here’s a bit of news for you too: this park is completely off-grid – with all power coming from the sun – and it has a water borehole and compost toilet as well (and a rather smart one at that – even harsh compost loo critics among previous guests have given this one the nod of approval…)

When dusk falls, warmth comes from the communal firepit overlooking the surrounding hills and across to the estuary; you can even see the cathedral lights glimmer after dark. Build up your own blaze for eats or get the barbecue going – firewood (as well as eggs from Exeter View Stables' free-roaming chickens) can be bought at the park and supermarkets are about a 10-minute drive away.

Not coming by car? Exeter St David’s train station is the same distance away by taxi. There's a warm welcome for those toting their backpack along on foot or by bike – in fact the folk on site are so keen to encourage such behaviour they even offer a discount for eco travellers (be sure to book an eco pitch to take advantage of that). This is an off-grid site but facilities are available for phone charging (phew).

If you do have your own wheels, attractions in the local area to seek out include the northern part of craggy Dartmoor National Park, 20 minutes away, for hikes through woodland and ancient valleys.

Adventures done for the day, head back to base to unwind safe in the knowledge you’ll have a bit of peace and quiet – the owners of this site keep numbers low to ensure it never gets overrun.

Please note

Dogs are not allowed in the accommodation units.

Reception is unmanned after 5 p.m.. Please inform the site while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

    We liked the friendly staff, the cosiness of the campsite whilst still have good sized pitches, the free use of fire pits, the lovely view and the distance from Exeter and Dartmoor was great. The showers are hot and have good pressure.

    The showers and toilets could have been to a higher standard of finish.

A brilliant, basic and relaxing site with great views!12/05/2022

    We had a fantastic stay here. The staff are friendly and go the extra mile to make your stay enjoyable. The scenery is great and adds to the relaxing feel of the place. There are some great views for the site, not least the view overlooking Exeter.

    The site itself is small, but there is plenty of space between pitches, so the feeling is quite private and relaxed.

    There is even a taxi service! Some patrons walked to Exeter and then took the taxi back, as the walk was uphill.

    There is good access to clean, fresh water and the toilet and shower facilities are basic, but more than adequate.

    There is wood, for the communal fireplace, and free range eggs onsite that can be purchased at very reasonable rates.

    We will definitely go back there and I'll be telling everyone (and their dog) about this place and the great time we had there.

    We highly recommend Exeter View Stables. We have no doubt you'd enjoy your stay there as much as we did.

    I seek out camp-sites such as this. It's quite small and the owners keep the numbers relatively low, so it's just so......relaxing!!!!
    Just lying under the trees looking down on Exeter in the distance, listening to the wind and enjoying good company. It's a perfect place to unwind.
    I like the off-grid approach when it's done like this - hot showers, fresh water and great toilets.
    Its not 5 star accommodation, but you can see a lot of stars at night. I saw the most intense blood moon over Exeter on our first night.
    The communal fire-pit is a wonderful place to spend the evening, but you can always have one of your own if you fancy, and there's always plenty of good firewood (and fresh eggs) available. You pay by honesty box. It's that sort of place.
    There's even a taxi service into town and back!
    The camp-site is run by lovely people. They can't do enough to help you and make you feel welcome.
    I'd recommend this site to people who want to unwind, relax, meet great people and live a simple existence for a few days.
    I probably wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking to have lots of facilities on hand (e.g. the shop isn't just round the corner and the hot tub is an old bath the sheep try and roll down the hill).

Directions


Your satnav will send you to a white house to your left called Brindear. The site is approx 250 metres up the lane on the right, next to a house called Guywood.

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

As well as all the sights of Exeter, which include the cathedral, a clutch of Tudor buildings and the medieval Underground Passages in the centre, another place to spend a stint is Topsham village, a 25-minute drive away – the park here is a top spot for birding along the estuary or taking a tug boat over to the pub just across the water.

Further on towards the coast is Exmouth beach, a family-friendly, sandy space accessible on the train line (from both Topsham and Exeter), with restaurants and cafés to totter towards in town. Once the kids have worn out their bucket and spade, take them on the rides at Crealy Theme Park & Resort in Sidmouth, 20 minutes away.

Grownups might like to factor in a little time in this town too for roams around Bicton Park Botanical Gardens and ganders at the Regency-era architecture – if the kids start to moan, simply pack them off for more sandy times at Sidmouth beach.

Must see

  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (2.0 miles)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (6.5 miles)
