General

  • Spectacular views in south Devon
  • Slipway access to launch small boats, canoes and kayaks
  • Wooded glade, barbecues and farm shop

The laidback owners of Wilton Farm, just outside Kingsbridge in south Devon, very much like their local landscape. They've been living in the area for over 50 years, but resolutely say they'll never tire of looking at the glorious views from their farm.

After a peek at the site pics (go on), you'll probably a) agree and b) have envy. Wilton Farm is on eight acres of land, with splendidly spectacular scenes across the site to Salcombe and to the local village of South Pool, all tucked into South Hams countryside a couple of miles from the – also highly scenic – Devon coast.

And there's messing around in boats. One of the Wilton Farm family's fave places on site is the good-looking and chilled-out glade where guests can go to relax – right next to the farm's own slipway access where lucky ducks with their own vessels can launch canoes, kayaks or small boats onto the estuary (use the 'special requests' box to ask about bringing your small boat when you book). You might now heave an envious sigh...

Wilton Farm has toilet and shower facilities available on site. As it's a working farm, Wilton has stacks of fresh tasty produce to sell in its shop, and a barbecue area on site too to sizzle up a storm. Another envious sigh...

Please note

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

    Paul (who owns and runs the farm) is really such a lovely man who made our stay so good. He went out of his way to help us when we had a problem with our car and for that we are very grateful. The showers and toilets are very clean and easy to use. There are bbqs available to borrow, as well as food. Such a beautiful area to camp in, with gorgeous views. Cant fault it and will 100% return! Thank you so much for a great stay.

    A beautiful but basic location. Obviously that is reflected in the price as it was so cheap. It has all the basics for a quick weekend away!

    Disliked: 

    Could do with a better facility for washing your dirty dishes as this had to be done in the same sinks as you wash and brush your teeth in.

From the manager...

Thanks very much for your review. Glad you found our little spot beautiful, we certainly do! It's really lovely to have people enjoy the views over Salcombe from the farm,

Thanks for your feedback on a new facility for washing dishes. We are working on that right now to rectify this. Hope you do come back again some time.

Local attractions

What a honking amount of things there are to see and do in the South Hams for holidaymakers of all flavours – coastal connoisseurs, book buffs, fisherfolk, foodies, watersporters, scenery seekers, history hunters, wildlife watchers and canny kids all trot to these parts for a slice of what they fancy.

The coast is only a couple of miles away with miles of sandy beaches to pick from, but the Wilton Farm team recommend Mill Bay and Fisherman’s Cove, both scenically inspiring options for south Devon writer Agatha Christie. Nearby Salcombe is the spot for sailing, with surfing, kiteboarding and surf lessons available at Bantham about eight miles along the coast.

If you're a Poirot, Marple or Tommy and Tuppence fan, Agatha Christie attractions are plentiful in the area, like her house Greenway near Brixham (again, seriously scenic), the Agatha Christie gallery at Torquay Museum, the Agatha Christie Trail, and the Potent Plants part of Torre Abbey, inspired by the different potions in her books featuring plants to kill or cure.

Nature trailers can start out straight from the site, with birdwatching and wildlife watching close to hand too from the lookout spots of Slapton Ley, a National Nature Reserve around the biggest natural lake in the south-west: look out for the cirl bunting, once almost extinct, as well as dormice, badgers, bats and otters.

More of a history hunter? Ask the Wilton Farm lot for local tales of ghosts and famous inhabitants of the area, or drive down to Slapton Sands, behind Slapton Ley, where the D-Day landings were practised (spot the recovered Sherman tank at Torcross).

For kids, Paignton and its zoo is about 20 – 25 minutes' drive away, and Devon's Crealy Great Adventure Park within about an hour. At Dartmouth, Woodlands Leisure Park, Dartmouth Castle and boating down the Dart to Totnes should keep all sizes occupied; have some time in Totnes too for townie individualism like an Alice in Wonderland-themed café, independent shops, market and a shop specialising in harps.

We'll finish at the pub, we think: run along to the Pig Nose Inn in East Prawle for some first-class food, or the Globe Inn just down the road in Frogmore for affordable family grub in a Good Pubs Guide location.
