Prattshayes Campsite: Spacious secluded pitches

General

  • Family-friendly countryside site 30 minutes’ walk from Exmouth beach
  • A 25-minute drive from Crealy Adventure Park and 30 from Exeter
  • A few metres from a watersports centre and the river Exe

What do you picture when you think of your fantasy hols? If it’s beaches, stately houses and coastal walks through dinosaur country, then scurry over to Prattshayes Campsite (a green-field site 35 minutes’ drive from Exeter in Devon) to live your dream.

Prattshayes Campsite is a top spot for venturing out around country and coast: three-mile-long Exmouth beach is a 30-minute walk from the site and it feeds into the Jurassic Coast at Orcombe Point 15 minutes down the beach. You can see more of the Devon coastline by picking up the 630-mile South West Coast Path at Exmouth beach, or following the Exe Estuary trail from Exmouth to Exeter and over to Dawlish.

More of a water-based creature? Exmouth Watersports – where you can try out windsurfing, paddleboarding and kayaking on the river Exe – is very close, or you could stick to Exmouth beach for some swimming and basking.

Back on site, reward yourself for all your hard work by firing up the barbecue, piling it high with calories (pick up supplies from Exmouth, less than 10 minutes’ drive away) and tuck in before heading over to the on-site bar to wash it all down. If you’d prefer to venture off site for your dinner, there are plenty of restaurants worth trying within 10 minutes.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

The bar is open between 01/04 and 31/10.

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

At least one of the party members must be aged 25 or over.

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Please note that the site is also a wedding venue so there may be music and noise until 11pm.

    Big field and relatively few other people staying. Showers and facilities were good.

    Disliked: 

    The campsite is linked to an events space so there was a wedding mid week which was a bit noisy. Also they started grounds maintenance (lawn mowing and hedge cutting) at 8am which was unnecessary and didn’t make for a very peaceful stay.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review and feedback. If I may comment on your feedback, the wedding venue is advertised and all music and noise is stopped at 23.00hrs, the same as on the campsite. The grounds maintenance team don't arrive onsite until 8.45am and by the time they are set up and are ready to start work, that is normally between 9-915am, so I'm not sure what happened there. Would have been useful if you'd come to let us know your concerns before you left but that often happens. Hope you find a site more suitable to your needs. Thanks again for the review.

Wouldn’t stay again, left a day early.14/09/2022

    The washing up area

    Disliked: 

    So overall think this is a very poor place to stay and I wouldn’t go again. So to start we got a tiny pitch (even though we asked the dimensions of our tent) there was two other tents in the field so wasn’t full but we assumed they would be the next day because we came on a Thursday. Then the next day another two tents which were 2 man and ours was 8 man and they got a huge pitch. We didn’t bother asking to change because we assumed that the the spaces were taken so that’s why we got that spot. ( thought it was just one of them things because maybe we booked last) But no the whole time the field was not ever full. In the pictures it had an indoor bar. Which we couldn’t go in because there was a wedding while we stayed so all there was a tiny shack with only out door seating and it rained a lot of the weekend so wasn’t much use.
    If you have dogs and plan to walk to the beach then this isn’t a good place because it’s all down county roads so has to drive anytime we left the campsite. Even to the pub that is close by you have to go down country lanes so again that’s not use with dogs. Overall wouldn’t stay again and we ended up leaving a day early.

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to review our site. Firstly may I ask if you came to reception to talk to us about the issue of your pitch? We could easily have moved you. I haven't spoken to anyone with a complaint.
We haven't had the Cowshed as a bar since last year. The Cabin with reception/shop and bar has been open all season and has been well received by most of our guests.
There are several ways to walk around the area, again if you had come to reception we could have shown you those walks.
Sorry you didn't enjoy your stay, hope you find somewhere more suitable for your requirements.

    The location was good for cycling the Exe estuary

    Disliked: 

    It was not pleasant to be camping when the next field ( 30m away) was spread with manure. The hire of the function room for a formal party was loud all evening, and guests returning to the tents were loud till very late
    It was not a quiet country stay

From the manager...

Thanks for your review. As you are aware, we advertise as a wedding venue, which was what you heard on Saturday night. The venue shuts down at 11.00pm. We are a rural site and have working farms around us, and they do muck spread at certain times of the year.
Hope you find somewhere more suitable for your requirements.

    Well set out campsite with good size pitches and lots of space. Welcoming emails and info very efficient and useful - professionally done. Good facilities ( showers free - none of the 50p nonsense!).

    Disliked: 

    Noisy at times in the morning with staff/ owners? Walking across the site near us and moving equipment. Showers and toilets being cleaned 8-9ish did get annoying as surely the time when they are needed most urgently.

From the manager...

Thanks for your review and for your feedback. Glad you liked the site.
Our resident cleaner normally does the showers at 6.00am before most campers are about, but maybe that day something happened? I will investigate but thanks for bringing it to our attention.

Local attractions

Start your stay at Prattshayes Campsite by sticking close to site, as there’s loads nearby to keep you (and the whole fam) busy.

Head into Exmouth for the Exmouth Museum, then venture a little further out for the World of Country Life park, Hawkridge Bird of Prey Centre, Bicton Park Botanical Gardens and the weird and wonderful 16-sided National Trust property A la Ronde, all less than 15 minutes’ drive from the site.

A la Ronde whetting your appetite for history and stately piles? Fab Powderham Castle is just over half an hour from Prattshayes Campsite, and is open for tours and lots of special events. If that’s still not quite enough, the museums, underground passages and cathedral of Exeter (worth a visit for shopping and food too) are also a little over half an hour from the site.

If you have kids in tow starting to protest about the walk down (centuries-old) memory lane, there’s oodles nearby to get them back on side… Start 20 minutes away with some go-karting to blow off steam, get their adrenaline pumping on the rides at Crealy Adventure Park (25 minutes), then pile them into the car for a jaunt to Paignton Zoo, less than an hour away.

Must see

  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (6.3 miles)
  • Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site (7.5 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (9.8 miles)

National Trust
