General

  • Wild camping-style Devon site five minutes' drive from Honiton
  • A 15-minute drive from Sidmouth and Seaton beaches
  • Dog-friendly site with firepit; continental breakfast available

Almost-wild camping is the name of the game at Forest Edge, a rural Devon site that’s got a relaxed, peaceful vibe but with the bonus of basic facilities including toilets and showers.

The site is surrounded by 30 acres of particularly gorgeous rural scenery and is located within the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so you should have plenty of space to soak up the countryside air around here. That’s not to say it’s out of the way though: in fact, it’s only about five minutes’ drive from towns like Honiton, Ottery St Mary and Sidbury. There are lots of local attractions nearby too, and it’s a 15-minute drive to the south coast at Sidmouth or Seaton for a splash in the sea.

Dogs and barbecues are both welcome at this laidback site; there’s a firepit for guests to use, with logs available on site as well. An excellent country pub is less than a mile away if you fancy sampling the local ales, and there are plenty of forest walks and bike trails nearby if you feel like it'd be a good move to offset those drinks with a spot of outdoor exercise.

Want to get off to a great start in the morning? Continental breakfasts are available – ask site staff for more details.

    Peaceful spot with everything you need near by. Owners were super friendly & helpful. Liked that the pitches had space between them so you didn't hear other peoples conversations, decent showers, can explore the forests, travel to Beer for cliff top walk & beach swim.

    I would definitely go again.

    Disliked: 

    The wood hired with fire pit wasn't get. Needed to be dried out more.

Relaxed and serene site close to nature. Friendly people.07/13/2022

  • Liked: 

    We really loved the setting of this campsite. Set in a field with pitches amongst the wild flowers, perfect! Close to nature.
    Plenty of forest close by which was good for walking and generally taking it all in.
    Very peaceful and serene site and the people who ran it were very friendly and approachable.
    Easily accessible site but felt away from it all.
    We paid 15 per night for a fire pit and logs which was a great end to the day.

    Disliked: 

    Can imagine the porta toilets would get pretty funky if the site was at full capacity and if it was as hot as it was when we went...

From the manager...

Thanks for the great feedback. Glad you love the location and we look forward to seeing you again.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The chance to see friendly fuzzy animals is always a big perk of coming to the countryside, and here you're in with plenty of opportunities to do just that. The Donkey Sanctuary (10 minutes' drive) has obvious appeal with its shaggy herd, café and lovely spacious grounds, while the outdoor activities like alpaca trekking at similarly nearby Bearhouse Alpacas (10 minutes) are likely to prove popular too.

Family-focused itineraries might want to include a trip on Seaton's vintage tramway (15 minutes) and visits to the assorted rides and slides at Crealy Theme Park (20 minutes). But there's a lot more for families to do here, from exploring the Beer Quarry Caves (15 minutes) to seeing the exotic species at Wildwood Escot animal park (10 minutes).

A little further away there's even more to explore, including A La Ronde (30 minutes), a gorgeous National Trust property with leafy gardens, or, for something a touch more urban, Exeter city centre (an hour) with its cathedral, shopping opportunities, restaurants and quayside walks.

Must see

  • Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site (8.1 kilometers)
  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (14.1 kilometers)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (16.4 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Branscombe: the Old Bakery, Manor Mill and Forge (9.7 kilometers)
  • Shute Barton (12.0 kilometers)
