General

  • Wild camping on a working organic farm
  • Entertainment barn with sofas and tourist info
  • Guided walks, Dartmoor tours, archery and clay shooting available

The facts, given straight: Horizontal Leisure Club near Devon's Newton Abbot is a place in which to lose yourself for a few days (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, and 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 magnif Devon views from the restaurant over the Teign Valley.

    Secluded and private, large field, owner was friendly and accomodating, running water and toilet.

    Disliked: 

    not much flat ground - just enough to pitch a tent.

From the manager...

Overall a very reasonable review. Wifi is OK given remoteness of location albeit not brilliant. Agree young children would need on site activities but plenty within 3-4 miles.Secluded for peace and quiet and folk are welcome to walk around farm providing all gates shut are left shut. Hope to put in showering facilities for next season. Very close to A38 dual carriageway and 3 miles to 24 hour supermarket.

    Wasn't what I booked

    Disliked: 

    Pitch up ignoring my emails wasn't what I booked
    & STILL waiting for refund

From the manager...

Because the Olympic swimming pool was put as the main photo it was misleading to this client. The swimming poll is available around the corner about a mile away. This site probably appeared as larger with more social activity when in fact it is fairly basic eco-friendly site suited to people who want peace and quiet. The site is being upgraded this year with showering facilities. When I spoke to this lady she acknowledged the unsuitability was not my fault, and I have added more appropriate photos.

Local attractions

The particular part of Devon around Horizontal Leisure Club has some fab fishing (and walks) nearby at the Trenchford, Tottiford and Kennick reservoirs, with boating also available on Kennick; a climbing centre at Chudleigh Rocks, and walks along the nearby River Teign.

The seaside towns of Teignmouth and Dawlish are both around 10 miles away and both a day each; Teignmouth has a pier and day boating trips to the Torbay area (Torquay, Paignton and Brixham) as well as occasional trips to Dartmouth on Agatha Christie tours), and Dawlish is one of the best places in all the land to spy birds, at its RSPB-owned sandbar warren.

Also well worth a look, the cathedral city of Exeter is 12 miles away.
