General

  • Family-run park on a former stud farm and in a wildlife haven
  • Two and a half miles from the coast
  • Heated outdoor pool, bar, café, shop, takeaway and craft centre

Dithering re which setting you prefer for holiday accommodation – walks in the countryside versus hoofing it to the nearest beach? Try a countryside break by the sea at friendly and family-run Whitehill Country Park.

On a former stud farm with converted stables and stone farm buildings, Whitehill is in a wildlife haven deep in the Devon countryside but only two and a half miles from the sands of the English Riviera: guaranteed, of course, to keep all sorts of neigh-sayers happy.

Nature fans will champ at the bit to delve into the 40 acres of hill, woodland and countryside around the park, where 130 species of flora and ferns can be recorded neatly in nature-spotting notebooks and where local wildlife abounds: look out for badgers, kestrels, pheasants and buzzards among others.

Meanwhile, beach buoys and girls will find the nearest sands only a couple of miles away: it’s but a short drive to the beaches of Paignton, Torquay and Brixham, and onto the 20 or so first-class beaches along this 22-mile stretch.

On site there's a heated outdoor pool; plenty of play areas; walking trails, and nature all around; the park has won awards for its approach to wildlife management and conservation. Also around are letterboxing opps, a treasure trail to keep the little treasures occupied, and all the cons of a mod site such as a takeaway, café, shop and supping alfresco while watching the sun go down from the terrace at the Hayloft bar.

Those who feel artistic can draw and paint in the indoor Shire Craft Centre; table tennis and a pool table are also on hand for indoor play.

Excellent site, well maintained with very helpful friendly staff. 29/09/2018

    We have just arrived back from a weeks caravan stay at Whitehill Country Park. Firstly i would like to say how impressed we were with the help and support from the staff. We had originally booked in thursday - thursday but had been keeping an eye on the weather. unfortunately it was meant to be stormy on the friday and again on the sunday. we contacted the site to find out whether we could change our dates. The staff were extremely helpful and we managed to push the break forward to the monday - saturday instead. The park itself is very well maintained and all the amenities were very clean, tidy and well placed. We had stayed here about 8 years ago when we were camping, so needless to say when we decided to go back to Devon for another break, this park was our first choice and we were not disappointed. We used the bar facilities too and had a meal and drinks there which was very pleasant. we have two beagles and used the dog walk area regularly throughout our stay. We would highly recommend this park to all age groups as there is something there for everyone, including an outdoor pool and jacuzzi. The park is very well located and within easy reach of other towns within Devon. We will definitely be back.

    Disliked:

    What a lovely place to stay, great for exploring the area. It was just a short drive to Paignton, Brixham etc. The staff was nice and help full a great bar area with good food at ok prices. Pool looked good but we did not go in but there was plenty that was. Would recommend and stay again. Ps if you get the bus to Paignton pleases be aware that they are only 2 hours apart and a taxi will cost you £10 one way.

    Great facilities on site Swimming Pool, Bar, Cafe, Soft Play, evening entertainment, laundry services and Shop. Great toilet and shower facilities too.

    Disliked: 

    Poor customer services in Cafe one error was made in our order and no refund offered. Then another time we ordered off menu kids meal and gorgons (chicken pieces) on its own. The chicken pieces were off the take away menu so was not allowed to be eaten in the bar area like the kids meal? Also the kids meal couldn't be ordered as a take away. Even know all food is ordered and cooked from same kitchen area? Thought this was a poor service and was not very accommodating for my children's needs they just wanted pasta and chicken together for their meal. In the end we ordered the meal and take away as two separate orders, ate the meal inside and chicken pieces back at the tent, not ideal.

    Fab walk to the estuary (mostly off-road).

    Seagulls were a pest
    The pitch was allocated for us and we were put very near other campers although the campsite was very empty.

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

The sights and activities around this part of Devon will suit all tastes: Dartmoor for active adventures, Totnes and Dartmouth for history and heritage – and the 22 miles of the English Rivieria for beaches, watersports, fishing and boat trips.

The closest beach to Whitehill Country Park is Goodrington, a mile south of Paignton. After you’ve stretched out on the red sands, there are a few other options to check out: learn about the history of the English Riviera at the free Seashore Centre, pedal your way around the boating lake, or take the kids to the waterslides and pools of Splashdown at Quaywest.

The English Riviera is of course also Agatha Christie territory – Greenway House was her holiday home (also where David Suchet as Poirot filmed his last scenes. Sniff.)

If you can’t make it to the annual Agatha Christie festival (tsk), amble along the 10 landmarks of the Agatha Christie Mile in Torquay; eight of the sites have clues spelling out the name of a Christie character. Hint: it’s probably not ‘Miss Marple’.

Must see

  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (1.3 miles)
  • Living Coasts (4.7 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (9.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Greenway (2.5 miles)
  • Compton Castle (3.8 miles)
