- Family-friendly farm site 10 minutes' drive from Newton Abbot
- Within half an hour of beaches at Dawlish, Paignton and Teignmouth
- Fishing lake and spotless amenities; pub within walking distance
Farm, fishing and forest – all these await for folks having a break at Haldon View Campsite. Those first two are right there on site: this secluded spot is on a farm that has its own fishing lake.
And the forest? That’d be the mighty Haldon Forest, 3,500 acres of woodland a five-minute drive from the farm. If that’s not enough nature for you, Dartmoor National Park is 20 minutes in the other direction – and this nifty spot near Newton Abbot is within a half-hour drive of Exeter, Torquay and Teignmouth too.
If you still need to work up an appetite before eats, a woodland walk runs from the site over a stream bridge and along a bridleway to a country pub. Friendly dogs are welcome to accompany you on this outing, as they are to join you on your Haldon View break.
Facilities on site include a small play area and a utility room with washing-up sink and washing machine/tumble dryer. The shower and toilet block crops up time and again in the reviews with guests praising its sparkling cleanliness.

From the manager...
I'm very sorry that you had an unpleasant stay. The group you refer to were given a warning and behaved appropriately for a family site for the rest of their stay, I received no further complaints. The other incident was unrelated and totally unacceptable, they were told to leave immediately, which they did and I spoke to as many of the families on site as were around to apologise for any distress and to reassure them going forward, apologies if I didn't manage to speak to you. We expect and hope that everyone will behave respectfully but people are people and it's unfortunate that sometimes the mix of campers, very hot weather and a little too much drink can end badly and it's not possible for us to predict this. This kind of behaviour is certainly not typical of our site!

The site is signposted from the A380, please only take the Olchard turn off: ignore your sat nav as most will take you down country lanes. The site is only 150 yards from the dual carriageway, just up from the Ideford turnoff and before the Ideford Combe and Kingsteignton turnoff.
Stack the bikes on the back of the car or chuck your boots in the boot for the five-minute drive to Haldon Forest, where there are marked-out trails for walkers and mountain bike riders, along with themed routes for the nippers (can you spot a Gruffalo as you go?) Hire bikes at the visitor centre if you’ve not brought your own, tour the forest on Segways or horse rides, or tackle the treetop trails at the Go Ape adventure park.
If you prefer your fresh air with a salty tinge, head to one of the nearby beaches: Dawlish (15 minutes’ drive), Teignmouth (15 minutes) and Paignton (25 minutes) are all splendid sandy choices. If you pick Paignton it’s also worth scheduling in a bit of time to visit the town’s excellent zoo and/or the Splashdown waterpark.
Folks with small people in tow will no doubt be chuffed to hear that there’s a lengthy list of family-friendly outings to be had around here: you’ll be within a half-hour drive of the Devon Bird of Prey Centre, Buckfast Butterfly Farm, Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary, Babbacombe Model Village and the prehistoric Kents Cavern, to name but a small handful.
