General

  • Adults-only farm site 10 minutes from English Riviera beaches
  • Outdoor haven: trails, tors and moors of Dartmoor within 30 minutes
  • Fully licensed summer restaurant and bar on site

When the choice between beachy hols on the English Riviera and lush wanders in stunningly scenic national parks leaves you dithering, make your decision a doddle with a stay at Widdicombe Farm Touring Park, a family-run and adults-only site 10 minutes’ drive from the seaside town of Paignton on the Devon coast.

The site's about 15 minutes from the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and half an hour from Dartmoor National Park, so there are plenty of spectacularly green vistas to hike, bike or drive through within easy reach – not to mention waterfalls, river banks and craggy moors...

If the first thing into your suitcase was a swimming cossie, you’ve packed well for this particular getaway: Paignton’s Preston Sands beach is less than 10 minutes away (there’s a shuttle service from the site). If your quick sandy stroll seems to be picking up speed, turn it into a long-distance jaunt by accessing up the South West Coast Path at either end of the beach.

There’s a small shop on site for groceries if you fancy bringing picnic supplies on your day trips, or you can hold off for a home-cooked dinner at Poppies, the on-site restaurant (open from Easter to September). After that, wander over to Gordon’s bar for a drink, or to take in the live entertainment.

From the manager...

We're glad you liked our facilities and enjoyed your holiday in The English Riviera. Unfortunately we cannot allow dogs into the bar because we do allow up to 3 dogs per unit and if everyone brought their dogs in it could become tricky to manage. It's also possible that not everyone staying here is comfortable around dogs or may have an allergy so they can relax without any concerns. We do however, have a fabulous outside seating area where people can bring their dogs and enjoy a drink.

    This is a quiet, well run site for adults. We really enjoyed our stay and found it a peaceful haven to return to from the bustle of the main holiday season in Torquay.

    The site offers minibus trips to Torquay, Brixham and Totness which are excellent if you want to travel worry free of parking etc.

    The facilities are excellent and although on the main ring road, the noise levels are not too intrusive. There is also an onsite restaurant and bar.

    A really good find.

We're glad you found our facilities to your liking and that you had a peaceful stay. We shall look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

    Very helpful staff - even helped us get caravan in position.
    Very clean toilets and showers and very close to where we were sited

    Disliked: 

    Only 2 showers in ladies toilet block and only 1 in men's plus unisex shower. Was a by of a problem if you wanted s shower at busy times but mostly we tried to avoid these so wasn't a major issue.

From the manager...

So glad you enjoyed your stay with us and we hope to see you again sometime when you are next visiting the area. The toilet block you refer to is one of three on the park and is the smallest of the three. You're right that at peak times it can be a busy place. The park has been very busy so occasional delays using some facilities is inevitable but we're glad to hear that it didn't cause you too much inconvenience.

Local attractions

This is Agatha Christie country, so if you’re looking to solve the mystery of what to do during your hols, you're sorted here too.

Make your way into Torquay a 15-minute drive away for the Agatha Christie Mile – a walking tour of spots that inspired the author – and Kents Cavern, a prehistoric cave that served as Hampsley Cavern in her novel The Man in the Brown Suit. For a glimpse of Christie’s personal life, Greenway House at Brixham is where she spent summer and Christmas hols.

If Greenway House whet your appetite for stately homes, zip along to Compton Court (five minutes) for house and garden tours, or Cockington Country Park (10 minutes) for strolls around the extensive grounds and a glimpse of Cockington Court (now a craft centre). Not enough? Venture further afield for Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre, Buckfast Abbey and the 16-sided A la Ronde, all within 35 minutes.

There are plenty of museums, steam trains and model villages nearby to keep history buffs entertained, but those who prefer more of a living and breathing experience should pad over to Paignton Zoo or Living Coast aquarium (both within 15 minutes) instead.

Must see

  • Living Coasts (4.4 kilometres)
  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (4.4 kilometres)
  • Buckfast Abbey (13.8 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Compton Castle (1.1 kilometres)
  • Greenway (9.1 kilometres)
