    Excellent quality caravans / vardos
    Inviting and friendly staff
    Relaxed atmosphere
    Good location

    We travelled as a Romani couple looking to connect to our roots. While we stayed there, there was also two other families there, one also Romani and the other non-Romani. Everyone got on well and it was all very welcoming. The site is great whether you want to use it as a base to travel around the area or sit by the fire / bovvy all day. The site itself is beautiful as well. A good way to either learn about or reconnect with Romani culture.

    All the staff are very accommodating and atr able to tell you about the local area if you want to travel.

    Kushti Vardos is by far the loveliest place I've ever stayed! It is so special, the quiet surroundings, the fields and woods, with deer coming out in the twilight or at dawn, the horses grazing peacefully just behind the fences until they've had enough and wander off. And above all: those incredibly beautiful wagons!!
    Owners Clarence and Sarah are so friendly and helpful, it was a great joy meeting them.
    Just keep in mind the facilities (2 toilets, 2 showers) are quite basic, don't expect luxurious modcons, apart from good hot water, excellent Wifi, and LED-lights and USB phone charging sockets in every wagon!
    We missed out on the open fire cooking, but we're definitely planning to do so next time.

Thank you for your kind words. We'll look forward to seeing you again one day. KV

Local attractions

Exeter (20 minutes’ drive) is a lovely historic city, sitting on the seafront and with free daily guided walks giving you an intro to its delights. The medieval cathedral has a spectacular Gothic facade, while mellow St Nicholas Priory was founded in 1087 and is open for tours of its undercroft and Tudor-era parlour. The Quayside is lined with lively pubs and restaurants for when you’ve had your fill of history.

Rambling and cycling in Dartmoor National Park (20 minutes) is another big draw in these parts; head for Grey Wethers stone circle (40 minutes) or the dramatic cascade at Becky Falls Ancient Woodland Park (35 minutes). If you fancy sea views for a change, head to the South West Coast Path (half an hour) for challenging hiking along clifftops.

Travelling with the kids? If they have behaved impeccably, reward them with a day on the thrill rides at Crealy Theme Park and Resort (20 minutes), or take toddlers to meet the animals at the Miniature Pony Centre (half an hour). For fun in the sea, there’s a quiet beach at Sandy Bay (40 minutes), or you can take long walks on the shingle at laid-back Budleigh Salterton (35 minutes).
