General

  • Family-run park in a Devon countryside AONB
  • Near Dartmoor and less than ten miles from the south Devon coast
  • Communal fridges, hot showers and campfires allowed

Near Dartmoor National Park but less than ten miles from the famed sands of the south Devon coast lies Holsome Park Camping, family run by Louise and Graham and set in the Devon countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

You might want to pitch up and hang out here for some time because of the smashing sunsets and the far ranging views right over to Dartmoor, but if/when you do fancy some county investigating, the A38 is only ten minutes away – how wholesomely handy.

Holsome Park is a popular place for its quiet but family-friendly atmosphere and its pitches where guests can fire up campfires underneath those Devon sunset.

Loos, hot showers and washing-up facilities are available. Holsome Park also has two communal fridges and a power point for phone recharging; fresh eggs and meat are often available to buy.

  • Liked: 

    Hot showers, 24hr fridge and freezer access, tonnes of space in the field, campfires allowed, logs available, eggs, sausages, burgers and steaks, feeding chickens, collecting eggs, amazing sunsets, starry skies, ten minutes from the A38. Graham and Louise are really helpful and not intrusive - great way to run a campsite.

    Disliked: 

    Bathroom would benefit from hooks and shelves near the sink to stand wash bag and hang towels.

Friendly helpful owners and a quiet basic campsite 16/08/2016

    We loved this campsite, yes it's basic but that's just how we like it. We arrived in the evening and Louise was so kind and helped us out with essentials as we hadn't stopped along the way on our nightmare of a journey! The space was great plenty of room to pitch and the kids to play, yes it's not a level field but there were plenty of flat spaces to pitch. Loved having a proper fire toasting bread and marshmallows, whilst enjoying the sunset over the hills and star gazing! Looking forward to our next visit.

Directions


Please note that the roads in south Devon can be narrow lanes at times.

From Exeter:
Come down the A38 from Exeter and go past the junctions marked for Ashburton, Buckfastleigh and Rattery. Take the Marley Head junction signposted for South Brent, Totnes and Dartington. At the roundabout off the slip road, take the third exit on the right signposted Diptford. Go along this lane and at the crossroads go straight across. Turn right at the T-junction. Take the third road signposted for Diptford (Christone Cross). Our farm lane is the next left (approximately 200 yards from the junction). Go down the lane past the farm buildings on the left, and Holsome Park is the next left.

From Plymouth:
Come off the A38 at the Avonwick/South Brent junction; follow the road signposted for Avonwick and Totnes. Once you have gone past the Avon Arms on the left-hand side of the road and Cousins Garage on the right, you will go over a small bridge. Take the right-hand turning immediately past the bridge. Keep going along this road up to the village of Diptford. Take the third turning to the right signposted Moreleigh and Kingsbridge. When you are reaching the top of the hill before you get to the T-junction you will see a right turn with a triangle of grass. Turn right and go down the lane. The campsite is the third on the left just after the farm buildings (second left).

Local attractions

It's a ten-mile drive down some narrow Devon lanes to get to the coast from Holsome Park Camping, but we're pretty sure you'll find it worth it when you arrive: miles of award-wining sands and cracking coastal hikes are around the closest beaches of Bigbury, Bantham, South Sands, Blackpool Sands, East Soar Cove, and Slapton, along with trad old pubs, cream tea cafés, restaurants and seaside fish and chips.

This is of course hiking land, whether you want to wander over moors at Dartmoor, stride the five miles from Dartington to Totnes or take the nearest stretch of the South West Coast Path (the 13-mile run from Bigbury to Salcombe is all in the South Devon AONB and said to be one of the most beaut of all the path's 630 miles).

Steam along on the South Devon Railway, the longest established steam railway in the south west, for a less strenuous sightsee for over six and a half miles from Totnes to Buckfastleigh, mostly along the River Dart.

Anglers can cast off for carp in the area around Holsome, while Pennywell Farm, Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, Dartmoor Zoological Park and Totnes Rare Breeds Farm should sort tots and kids in the area who are into animals.

Must see

  • Buckfast Abbey (6.8 miles)
  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (9.1 miles)
  • Dartmoor Zoological Park (9.3 miles)

National Trust

  • Greenway (8.7 miles)
