Wheeldon Farm: Views of Dartmoor

General

  • Family-oriented park between Dartmoor and the south Devon coast
  • A 15-minute drive from Totnes and half an hour from Plymouth
  • On-site indoor MTB and BMX tracks catering to all ages

Calling all fans of life on two wheels – this one's for you. Wheeldon Farm is a holiday park in the stunning south Devon countryside geared towards families looking for action-packed motorhome or campervan breaks. Active holidays are easy to come by here: it's roughly equidistant between Dartmoor National Park and the splendid south Devon coast. Oh, and there's also on-site mountain biking and BMX tracks that all age groups are welcome to use.

With miles of green lanes to explore starting from your pitch, this is a particularly fine spot for push bike, mountain bike and e-bike riders – and you're covered whatever the weather, as kids (and big kids too) can spend hours zooming around the farm's all-weather indoor tracks. It's all free to use, so simply bring some appropriate protective gear and get pedalling.

Modern toilets and showers are available for all guests, and there's also a lounge area with an outside terrace where you can sit back, relax and take advantage of the far-reaching views over the local countryside. Other features include a coffee machine, a coin-operated laundry room and a vending machine where you can pick up essentials like bread, eggs and milk. Need to stock up on more? Totnes (15 minutes' drive) is on hand to cover all your food-related bases.

Please note

Units longer than 8.5 metres are not allowed.

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

Tents are not accepted at this park.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the campground are unlit.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

    All the usual facilities were provided. The choice of views, flexibility. I couldn't sell our experience more.

    The biggest positive with our stay here beyond the many other places we have stayed is the welcoming staff.

    We are extremely easygoing and well equipped, but the staff were very friendly, going over and beyond to ensure everything with our staff was perfect.

    We will undoubtedly stay here again.

    Was dark on arrival, not given any directions for toilet block. Dark campsite and given the weather we weren't in a position to go looking for the amenities.

From the manager...

Good afternoon Lorraine,
We are somewhat surprised and disappointed by your review that you have given.
When our visitors arrive on site they are always greeted by one of our team and clear advice given to all facilities that are available on site.
Before you turned into the pitches you have to pass the toilet and shower block which are illuminated with exterior lights which you cannot miss as it is directly in front of you and clearly visible in your vehicle headlights even if it is dark.
To say that you were not in a position to go looking for the amenities due to the weather is strange.
It was raining and windy. All the other visitors at the time of your visit still used the facilities.
The campsite of an evening is obviously dark but there are lights on the outside walls on both the toilet and shower areas which you cannot fail to see.
This is a fairly small campsite with only 16 pitches and the furthest pitch from the amenity blocks is a two minute walk.
The other visitors that were here at the same time as you gave overall reviews of 10
We are happy to accept that you will not visit again.

Hi Tim,
Thanks for the kind review.
We are pleased you enjoyed the site facilities and location for local attractions.
Unfortunately as you stated the winds were really bad whilst you were here and you could not put your awning up.
Our location at the top of the hill which gives the views is excellent but in extreme winds it does limit the use of awnings
Please come and see again soon

Local attractions

Well-behaved pets can expect a warm welcome at Wheeldon Farm, with daily walks (or swims) available a short walk away from site at the river Avon. This peaceful spot is just at the end of the green lane that crosses the site, while further afield in the South Hams there's a range of dog-friendly beaches and walking trails to explore. For woodland walks, you might want to take them to Haldon Forest Park (35 minutes' drive), where there's also a Go Ape high ropes course and mountain biking trails for the humans.

If you've brought kids instead of canines, you might like to take them off to Woodlands Family Theme Park (10 minutes), to see the animals at Paignton Zoo (30 minutes) or to check out what's swimming at the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth city centre (30 minutes).

Other must-see attractions in the surrounding area include Totnes (15 minutes), an attractive and unusual market town with a hilltop castle, Dartmouth (25 minutes), an important naval centre with estuary cruises and attractive historic fortifications, and Salcombe (30 minutes), a swish seaside resort surrounded by sandy beaches.
