General

  • 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.

    *The setting is beautiful.
    *Really helpful and friendly owner.
    *Adequate though basic facilities.
    *Quiet site.
    The booking procedure through Pitch Up was excellent. I will certainly use
    it again.

    Disliked: 

    I really did enjoy staying at this site. The only drawback for me was that
    I like to cycle, and in order to begin any ride I had to use the very busy
    A281. However, this is no fault of the site - but that is why I only gave
    Location a 4.

The views from the top field of the devon countryside ... 28/08/2017

    The views from the top field of the devon countryside are lovely. The basic nature of the site meant there was loads of room even on the sunny August bank holiday. The owners are very welcoming and relaxed. This is a campsite for those who aren't fussed about the facilities, but want a feeling of space and good access to the coast, totnes and Dartmoor.

Directions


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.
