Markstone Farm Caravan and Camping: Messing about in the meadow

General

  • Adults-only site on a 1.5-acre paddock in the Devon countryside
  • A 15-minute drive from Kingsbridge and 20 minutes from Salcombe
  • Stays on a working beef and sheep farm with scenic South Hams views

When you next find yourself hankering for fab West Country views, clear your schedule and zip down to Devon for a stint at Markstone Farm Caravan and Camping, a family-run farm site on the edge of the South Hams. Peace and quiet here are assured by a rural location and status as a total kid-free zone – without any under-18s around, your sweet repose in all that gorgeous green space should be blessedly undisturbed.

Any younglings you do spot roaming the farm will be of the four-legged variety, with Aberdeen Angus calves and woolly-faced Dorset lambs bounding around the fields in spring. (Because there's livestock about, you'll need to keep any dogs that accompany you on leads while staying here and give owners Cathy and Andrew a look at their vaccination records.)

This welcoming spot also has a fair few practical bits and bobs to make your stay easier, including a well-kept toilet block, water point, firepit and waste disposal station.

Make Markstone Farm Caravan and Camping your base if you intend to venture around south Devon's splendid seaside towns – both Kingsbridge and Salcombe can be reached by road within 20 minutes, with jaunts to pretty villages like Bigbury (20 minutes) and Bantham (20 minutes) also on the cards. Scoop up snacks at Aveton Gifford stores (five minutes), where there's also a village watering hole for pub-cooked dinners.

Hello Chris

Thanks for taking the time to review and giving us a good rating. We are really sorry you experienced a "no hot water" moment.

The pilot light had gone out on the boiler, all lit and fine now. If you had told us whilst you were here we could have lit it/fixed it there and then.

If there is anything amiss when you visit again, tell us and we will happily try and put it right.

Hope you had a good trip to Cornwall.

    LOVED THIS SITE!!!!

    The site is simple no-frills, but beautiful, calm, and we absolutely LOVED it.

    When we booked, Cathy sent us a couple of text messages introducing herself, and on the day even sent us a message with a map she had drawn to explain the layout of the site. When we arrived we were greeted with a freshly made Devon cream teas.

    The site itself is a field on their farm, with unisex loos, water points, bins, and I think there was even somewhere to empty your chemical loos (do check that though, our campervan doesn't have a loo so I never thought to check it properly). No showers, but we knew that well in advance so wasn't a problem.

    The farm has beautiful views over the valley, incredibly peaceful, with a quiet road next to it. We could pick our pitch, and we were allowed fires, they even provided us with some wood at no extra charge.

    Obviously, it doesn't have some of the facilities that other sites have (showers, laundry, a shop, bar, wifi, etc), but the charm of this site is the peace, quiet, and chance to relax and slow down whilst taking in the countryside.

    Highly recommend

Hi Emily. Thank you for taking the time to leave a lovely review and so helpful for other campers. We do have a chemical waste point as you thought.
Will be lovely to see you both again when you are next in Devon

Wonderful tranquil site with great hosts22/05/2022

  • Non-electric grass pitch

  • Liked: 

    A wonderfully peacefull site on a farm with far reaching views and the most genial of hosts. As many others have commented ther cream tea on arrival was great and there was nothing too much trouble.

    We enjoyed the peace and quiet and the tranquil setting, the spotlessly clean toilet facicilties an the ability to have a lovely campfire into the evening.

    Lots of great local walks for us and a great choice of local eateries.

    There is a slight slope across the field at one side but nothing to worry about. The site is high up and the prevailing wind could be an issue for those with campers with large awnings if you don't park with the van in the right place.

    All in all a fantatstic site which we have booked up again

    Disliked: 

    Not enough time to spend enjoying the area as it was a short break.

From the manager...

Thank you, Neil for your lovely comments. We enjoyed meeting you and look forward to your next stay with us, very soon I think.

Directions


From the A38 (southbound): follow signs for Ivybridge Park and Ride/Modbury. Next, follow signs for Modbury. You will then come to a crossroads marked Kittaford Cross – go straight on.

You will come to an area signed California Cross with a BP garage on your left and the Cali Inn pub on your right. From here, head toward Modbury and take the second left fork in the road (signposted Bigbury). Continue up the road and take the 2nd left turn marked Aveton Gifford, Chillaton and Lixton. The marker posted is signed Hangman’s Cross.

Carry on, passing Cuckoo Farm, Greenlands Plant Nursery and Higher Wizaller Farm.

You will then see a stone wall on your left with a Markstone Farm sign in grey slate. There is a track running down the side of the farm – ignore it and enter the farm through the wooden gates instead. Come through the gates and follow the driveway on your right.

Local attractions

If you’ve not had enough hiking on the footpaths that crisscross the fields surrounding the site, fear not – there's a lot more where that came from. Motor down to Salcombe (20 minutes) for a circuit around Snapes Point, where panoramas over the South Hams hills and Kingsbridge estuary are a fine thing to behold. Inland, kick off Dartmoor explores in Ivybridge (25 minutes), a key stop-off point on the long-distance Two Moors Way.

Next, to Kingsbridge (15 minutes) and its streets stacked with independent shops and galleries, and where where a twice-monthly Saturday farmers’ market makes a top spot for sampling local Devon delicacies. There are plentiful paddling opportunities on offer here too – chat to specialists about paddleboarding tours or take a bit of coaching in the art of canoeing.

History buffs, meanwhile, may be drawn to the storied ramparts of Dartmouth Castle (half an hour) and Berry Pomeroy (40 minutes). This latter spot is rumoured to be haunted – if in need of less spooky historic times, try a reassuring ride on the Dartmouth Steam Railway (30 minutes) instead.

Must see

  • Dartmoor Zoological Park (8.6 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (10.6 miles)
  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (12.2 miles)

  • Overbeck's (8.6 miles)
