Wildswim2sauna: Families welcome

General

  • Eight-acre waterside site by the river Avon in Devon
  • A 15-minute drive from Kingsbridge; Salcombe 25 minutes
  • Direct river access, hot tubs and a sauna; river views at all pitches

Always been curious about river swimming? Head to Wildswim2sauna and take the plunge in a gorgeous eight-acre waterside site in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This site also makes it easy to warm up after chilly dips – hot tubs and a sauna are available to hire, adding just a dash of luxury to this otherwise off-grid experience.

Set in the rural grounds of a 140-acre estate where you'll catch glimpses of a 12th-century farmhouse, this quiet south Devon site keeps its other facilities on the low-key end of the spectrum with its simple, well-maintained toilet block. Other adventures in the local area are very easy to come by, especially if you book one of the site-organised mackerel fishing trips, sea swims or coastal cruises that take place in and around Salcombe (25 minutes' drive).

All the pitches at this secluded site come with river views and have plenty of space for families, couples or groups of friends. Barbecues are provided on-site if you're up for an open-air sizzle, with supplies available close by in Modbury or Kingsbridge (both 15 minutes).

Please note

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

Swimming in the lake is not allowed.

At least one of the party members must be aged 21 or over.

No cars/motorbikes by the pitch/unit. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

    Everything about this place is absolutely phenomenal! I could not have wished for a more perfect location with outstanding views! The wild river detox program is a perfect way to get rid of the everyday stresses that weigh you down and Charles is a fabulous host, always ensuring you have everything you need. We will definitely be coming back as soon as we can.

    I almost don’t want to write this review as it will encourage more people to go! We had an amazing weekend here. The owner, Charlie was friendly and accommodating. Pitches are right by the river with access for paddling or swimming. Trampoline for the kids, hot tubs and sauna for all. The site is big enough to find yourself a quiet area. Although the quieter areas are far away from the toilet. But well worth it for the peace. Highly recommended! This is wild camping with some basic amenities. Will definitely be returning this Summer. Something to note - there is no phone signal or wifi, however this was a welcome relief for us!

    Disliked: 

    No waste disposal for our chemical toilet. Did not effect us as we had our own, however the site Would benefit having some more toilets (there is only one) however Charlie has said that he will be putting more in soon.

From the manager...

Thanks for your great review, 3 serviced toilets will be made available in peak summer July ‘ august. There is caravan cassette waste facilities available at 2 locations in the car park field marked by the amber cones complete with sawdust / spades / pits.

These facilities are now added to the campsite general narrative in the e manual sent to all customers.

Local attractions

For a scenic three-part trip, head to Dartmouth (30 minutes' drive) for a 'round robin' tour of the Dart Estuary and English Riviera by boat, steam train and bus. You might also want to stick around at the set-off point – steeped in naval history and home to the 14th-century Dartmouth castle – or to take the ferry over the water to Coleton Fishacre House (just over an hour, including the crossing).

You have a generous supply of sandy beaches and fish restaurants in Salcombe (25 minutes), as well as the wilder shingle-lined shores of Slapton Sands, right next to the birdwatching and photography opportunities of Slapton Ley Nature Reserve (25 minutes). For a bit of contrast after all that wildlife, steer yourself towards the lively seaside city of Plymouth (35 minutes) for shopping trips, kid-friendly attractions or sheltered swims Tinside Lido.

Wildswim2sauna at Yeo Farm is also a quick 15-minute drive from the wilds of Dartmoor National Park or half an hour from the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Bodmin Moor is an hour away, while trips to Exmoor National Park will take about an hour and 20 minutes.
