- Relaxed camping on a small seasonal site on a south Devon working farm
- Spectacular setting surrounded by 20 acres of woodland and meadows
- Firepits encouraged: buy fresh farm produce on site
Chittlesford Mill Farm Camping is a small site on a working farm in south Devon, in an area of spectacular Devon countryside and sunrises.
The small native woodland trees offer some privacy and a great natural playground for kids; there's also a small spring to explore. Some of the land is very wild, so is excellent for nature spotting - bring long trousers and wellies if you really want to go exploring 'off piste'. The site is surrounded by 20 acres of land including woodland, fish ponds and meadows and is great for anyone who likes to play outdoors and explore nature.
Facilities include two toilets in the barn. The site has a cold running water tap but no utility area.
The site also has space to pitch in a lovely airy Dutch barn if the weather turns - a camping holiday in Devon doesn’t have to be sunshine dependent.. The site is roomy but only has a small number of pitches as its facilities are limited, so is a top spot for a rural getaway with freedom to explore the farm and surrounding areas. Fires in the designated firepits are encouraged.
The owners farm sheep and cattle and at certain times of the year there are lambs, calves, pigs and chickens. Two dogs who are very good with children are also on site and the owners welcome other well-behaved dogs. Please keep your dogs on leads as this is a working farm with livestock nearby.
Breakfast and sometimes dinner is offered in the farmhouse or alfresco at an additional cost: as there's a maximum on the number of people that can be catered for please register an interest on arrival or on balance payment.
Homegrown lamb, beef, pork, veg and eggs are for sale (depending on what's in stock). A lovely village shop is a five-minute drive away and two garages for late night supplies.The towns of Totnes and Dartmouth are a 10 to 15-minute drive away.
Pubs close by include the Maltsters Arms and the Watermans Arms, both five minutes away.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the town of Totnes take the A381 south for 5 miles. The farm is 3 minutes past the village of Harberton Ford. The entrance is on the right from this direction and is at the bottom of a hill. The farmhouse is yellow.
From Kingsbridge or Dartmouth follow signs towards Totnes on the A381. The farm is on the left 3 minutes past the village of Halwell. The entrance is next to a lay-by, the farmhouse is yellow and can be seen from the road.
Please be aware that to get to the site you will need to drive past the farmhouse and through the working farm. It is not sterile and you will see tractors, agricultural buildings and farm detritus. The owners only moved in in 2017 so are still tidying and planting trees. Although the site is in a gorgeous location, in a young woodland and hay field, the owners would like to say to guests to please don't be put off by the drive past the barn and do come back in the future to benefit from all the hard work they are putting in making the approach better for the future.
Please be aware that the track to the site is bumpy and you may not be able to drive right up to your pitch. The powners will endeavour to help you with kit lifts in their 4x4 if you need. They are also happy for you to leave your car further down the track in a parking area if you are unsure.
