General

  • Family-run adults-only site in eight acres of farmland near Paignton
  • Spacious site with views out towards the moors
  • Licensed summer restaurant, bar, clubhouse and spotless amenities

Widdicombe Farm Touring Park is a family-run, adults-only site, set in eight acres of scenic farmland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are no winding narrow country lanes to negotiate so no tiresome reversing if you should meet other traffic on the way to the park.

The site serves home-cooked meals in its licensed restaurant from Easter to the end of September, so you can come here to relax and let someone else cook your evening meal or Sunday lunch. The restaurant has a cosy and friendly atmosphere and also provides takeaways.

The popular Hayloft bar has a good selection of beers, wines and ciders. Over the Easter break and then from the spring bank holiday to the end of September, there's live entertainment several nights a week.

Other on-site facilities include a small shop and a clubhouse; there's also a modern toilet and shower block, kept to spotless standards by staff.

Please note

Single-sex bookings of 3 or more people (couples and immediate family members excepted) are not permitted via Pitchup.com.

During low season (October and March to mid-May, with the exception of Easter and Bank Holidays), the bar, restaurant and shop will only open when the customer demand is sufficient (to be decided at the discretion of on-site management).

From the manager...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us. I will ask Club Wifi the wifi provider to check the wifi on the park as you say you had a problem although I wasn't aware of any issues around the time of your stay. It is usually a very reliable service. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.
