General

  • Secluded 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 (as long as you clean up any mess they make… and your own rubbish, while you’re at it).

Facilities on site include a small play area and a utility room with washing-up sink and washing machine/tumble dryer. The bathroom block (housing four toilets and two showers) crops up time and again in the reviews with guests praising its sparkling cleanliness.

    Difficult to find luckily saw sign on way into Paighton. Tight getting onto site. Pitches very close together, water on pitch.

    Disliked: 

    Noise from the A380. Couldnt see the rubbish bin or chemical waste

From the manager...

You obviously need to go to specsavers then!
Had you bothered to read email i sent you then you would have had all the directions you needed along with a map showing where the chemical waste point and bins are, really not difficult.

    Can't park next to tent pitches.
    Toilets were not particularly clean.

From the manager...

Not sure what you mean that you cant park your car next to pitch? you had parked your car next to pitch, i saw you and spoke to you, pitch 20 and 21 both allow parking by pitch, toilets are cleaned daily and in October when you visited you were the only campers on site so any mess was caused by your own family.

You do need a certain level of fitness to camp in wild camp, it is a hill and a 10 minute walk to use facilities. More toilets are on way

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

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.

Must see

  • Living Coasts (8.9 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (10.1 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (10.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Compton Castle (7.5 miles)
  • A la Ronde (9.2 miles)
