General

  • Six-acre farm site with spectacular views towards Dartmoor
  • Meet the farm animals and have a trailer or tractor ride
  • Bar and restaurant, toddlers' playroom and games room for older kids

Old MacDonald had a…Parkers Farm? Herd your fledglings here to meet Susie the miniature goat and the rest of the herd: ponies, lambs, guinea pigs, rabbits, pigs, ducks, chickens, sheep and cows all live on Parkers Farm Holiday Park, right in the middle of the south Devon countryside with quacking great views towards Dartmoor and a 12-mile drive from the coast. (Naturally, dogs are welcome too.)

Farm fans can milk their holiday for all it’s worth with trailer and tractor rides around the site and daily farm walks to meet, greet and feed the menagerie; safe play areas and six acres of fields are available for the kids and dogs to go free range at too. Off site, the farm is near a flock of other Devon animal attractions: Pennywell Farm, Paignton Zoo and meeting the ponies of Dartmoor are within a quick drive.

The Parker family have run the farm as a holiday park for over 60 years and know the ropes in keeping guests relaxed and a-moo-sed: Miss Piggy's bar and restaurant dishes up home-cooked and well-cooked meals as well as takeaway, and has evening entertainment from mid-July to the end of August. (Dogs are welcome in the bar’s Oak Room).

Next to the bar, a spacious play/TV room is for toddlers to let loose in and older kids have a games room with video games, pool tables and table tennis.

Guests also have access to the stacks of clean and up-to-date facilities: two tiled shower blocks with free hot showers, two big family rooms, well-equipped disabled facilities and a large area for washing up and prepping vegetables.

Other amenities include a shop open from Whitsun to mid-September, launderette and free ironing facilities, post box and public phone, battery charging and an ice pack service.

The evening entertainment was fantastic, I loved how the children were encouraged to take part I everything especially helping to feed the animals and walking them up on a farm walk. We will definitely going back again.

    The site is very central to visit many places such as Plymouth, Exeter and Paignton etc. My 16 year old son liked the football area and the club house with games room, while my 14 year old liked the animal farm walks and the playground with trampolines. The views are amazing and although very close to the A38 it wasn’t that noisy. The staff are lovely and the shower and toilets are cleaned and checked regularly. Would definitely recommend.

    Disliked: 

    If you were disabled, I would mention this when booking as the site is very hilly.

Local attractions

You might be all of a dither trying to decide which Devon attraction to visit first, as coast, country, active options and peaceful pursuits are all near Parkers Farm, whether you prefer off the beaten track or more famed areas like Dartmoor National Park.

Beaches first? Your pitch is a paltry 12 miles from the Devon coastline and the seaside towns of Torquay, Paignton and Brixham. If you’d like to cram as much activity as possible into one area, Dartmoor National Park's your spot: start off with horse riding or pony trekking from one of the several stables (the park has different areas marked off for different levels of rider).

More urban(e)ly, Exeter, Newton Abbot and Ashburton are close to hand too if you fancy some shopping, a dip in Ashburton’s heated outdoor pool or a small flutter at Exeter Racecourse on the Haldon Hills.
