Higher Lillisford is a trendy caravan site offering electric hook-up and water on each plot. It is a great value site with no frills, offering amazing views of Haytor and the Dartmoors.
The English Riviera and south Devon’s beautiful bay has some of the best beaches in the country and from the campsite you are well-placed to enjoy them. With over 22 to choose from, whether you’re looking for a quiet spot to sunbathe, a sandy stretch to build sandcastles or a safe place for the little ones to paddle, there’s something for everyone.
From the site, walkers, cyclists and dog owners have many miles of safe, car-free lanes at their disposal. Dogs are welcome: the area makes for great walking and cycling is also ideal for visiting the coast or moors.
There are no shower or toilet facilities on site, although there is an emptying point.

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 Exeter, take the A380 to Newton Abbott. At the roundabout take the A381 (Totnes Road), going through Newton Abbott, and make a right (signposted Broadhempston) at Redpost Garage. You will find us on the right-hand side, as if turning onto Battleford Lane.
A bus route passes on the A381, from in front the Redpost garage, going to Totnes or the old market town of Newton Abbot every hour.
The campsite is located next door to the south west's premier show-jumping centre, where you are welcome to visit the weekly shows, have a snack in the café or enjoy browsing the outdoor clothing shop.
