- Barbecues allowed; pub, restaurant and café within walking distance
Set up for sweet sea views and countryside courses in the South Hams… a small, family-friendly and dog-friendly site on a working livestock farm, Didwell Farm Campsite is well-positioned for clifftop wanders, catching waves or whiling the day away on the sand, within walking distance of Thurlestone and coastal paths.
Down to the sea you go… with grassy pitches sloping down towards the valley, it’s easy to see your end destination. It’s a 35-minute walk to the South West Coast Path. From there, take your pick from Thurlestone’s five sandy beaches (all pretty splendid swimming spots).
There are surfboards for hire and watersports galore at Bantham beach (an hour’s walk), the rockpools and rock archway at the National Trust’s South Milton Sands (40 minutes) or plenty of wildlife around the South Huish Wetlands Reserve’s boardwalks (40 minutes).
No matter how far you walk or paddle out, there’s always a place to prop your feet back on site. The back to basics pitches are an easy-going place to unwind… perhaps rustle up a barbecue or take yourself off on a wander to source some tasty eats.
Handily, there’s a café down by South Milton Sands and a restaurant and pub 35 minutes’ walk away from the site. If you’re looking to stock up on general food supplies, Kingsbridge (a market town with an indoor pool and bowling) is an easy five-minute drive away too. Here, you may take your pick from fish and chip shops, pubs and other cosy restaurants.

If you’ve got little ones to entertain, no need to fret. Pennywell Farm (35 minutes' drive) has pig racing, trailer rides and a miniature railway, plus plenty of friendly farm animals for hands-on experiences. Woodlands Family Theme Park (20 minutes) has some slightly more daring rides, including rollercoasters and toboggan runs, as well as a zoo park and falconry.
Or, if you’re still looking to see more animals (and many of the wilder kind), Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (40 minutes) is a good detour. Paignton (45 minutes) itself has seaside resorts vibes in full with a busy beachfront, pier or steam railway rides a little further inland.
A fishing village with thatched cottages… Hope Cove (10 minutes) is a stop off the South West Coast Path and home to two small coves. Take a fishing trip here or set sail from Salcombe (15 minutes), a sailing town. Afterwards, you may want to dedicate some time to browsing the boutique shops, dining in a fine restaurant or taking the ferry to East Portlemouth beach (35 minutes) or South Sands Beach (15 minutes).
