The facts, given straight: Horizontal Leisure Club near Devon's Newton Abbot is a place in which to lose yourself for a few days (or maybe weeks). There are a full 15 acres of woodland for guests to spread themselves out among: you'll spy peace, you'll spy quiet, you'll spy maybe getting lost for quite some time…
This is wild camping on a working organic farm where the inhabitants include South Devon and Red Devon cattle, complete with occasional calves, as well as Texel sheep lambing in early March or thereabouts each year – and all quietly set about 10 miles from Teignmouth and Dawlish Warren.
The farm has an entertainment barn, the Pound House, with sofas, tourist info and a bar/counter: settle down here on wet days or maybe just to relax after a Devon explore. Speaking of which, the farm team can arrange small 20-minute guided farm walks through ancient woodland, or tours of Dartmoor in a Land Rover Discovery. Archery and clay shooting with lessons for novices is also available on site.
Mains water, litter bins, and fire extinguishers are provided for guests, and there's also a portable toilet.
A pub owned by Horizontal Leisure Club, the Palk Arms, is just over a mile away and dishes up food and real ales, alongside splendid Devon views from the restaurant over the Teign valley.

From the manager...
This customer's complaint is mostly about the state of the portaloo having not been cleaned up in time. This was entirely my fault as I was waylaid unavoidably at a business meeting in a local town and didn't get back in time to clear up and disinfect properly. Cleaning up took me half an hour and the next customer arrived an hour later and gave me a relatively good review. The next customers were delighted. As regards the smallness of the site I would say that the photos on pitchup.com do not hide the size and aspect so this complainant could have easily chosen a larger site which is what they did. There are only 4 pitches for tents so that peace and quiet and an undisturbed off the beaten track site are maintained. I have apologised and sorted out their money back. This is only the second complaint in 5 years.
