Devon has its fair share of big campsites and busy holiday parks, and full of variety they are too. But if you’re yearning for a more quiet vibe, a stay at Mounts Farm Touring Park should have you sorted – it’s a quiet family-run farm with a relaxed feel, run by Karen and her friendly team.
The pitches at Mounts Farm are generously sized and set in sheltered Devon fields, and the amenities are of excellent quality, with spacious showers, free hot water and a coin-operated laundry. There’s also an information area with a book library.
The on-site shop sells groceries and camping accessories at reasonable prices, while for a sit-down meal the Good Pub Guide’s Fortescue Arms is less than a mile away.
You’ll find enough to do around Mounts Farm Touring Park to keep you busy for aeons, including sandy beaches, historic houses, gardens, family days out and exploring the towns and villages of Devon. The park is near the market town of Kingsbridge, with a market three times a week and a farmers’ market once a month. Kingsbridge’s quay has a tourist information centre and is also where you can take a river cruise to Salcombe, the most southerly town in Devon; arrange a fishing trip or watersports lessons from here or pick up the best of the day’s catch at the local fishmonger.
Both towns are in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, as are nearby Totnes and Dartmouth. Totnes, known for its alternative and independent community (it even introduced its own currency, the Totnes pound, in 2008) is the place to pick up handmade clothing or antiques at its twice-weekly market and has more listed buildings per head of population than any other town in the UK.
In Dartmouth, take the kids on a river cruise along the Dart, have them feeling chuffed on the Dartmouth and Totnes Steam Railway or let them loose at the all-weather Woodlands Family Theme Park, one of the biggest theme parks in the UK.
There are stacks of other family attractions and days out in the area: for wildlife, the Totnes Rare Breeds Farm, the award-winning Pennywell Farm, Paignton Zoo, the National Marine Aquarium and Torquay’s Living Coasts among others, or take a day trip to nearby Dartmoor for pony spotting, waterfalls, walking and more.
Nearby Buckfastleigh has an otter farm and butterfly sanctuary: after you’ve fluttered around there for a bit, take a trip to Buckfast Abbey, home of the famous Buckfast tonic wine and where Rab C Nesbitt staggered to on a pilgrimage from Glasgow.

From the manager...
Thank you for your review, the pictures on our listing are our showers and toilets, they appear different because we re-decorated and changed the colour of the woodwork. We do sometimes have low water pressure. The fresh water points are in one location, central to all pitches and not more than a two minute walk from any pitch. The free hot water for washing up is supplied from oversink heaters with 5 litre capacity, they do take 5 minutes too re-heat from empty. One toilet did become blocked and this was dealt with as soon as we were aware of it, there were other toilets available. Our shop/reception is open 8am to 7.30pm every day, when closed we have two contact numbers displayed clearly on the door and at least one of them is always on, we live adjacent to the park and respond to calls immediately. We have a small play area for younger children and a public footpath from the park links into a network around the village.Our farmer neighbour did have a celebration on Saturday 8th August, this was a one off one night celebration, we did not put up a notice as most notices go unread.

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
