Postwood Gardens Campsite: One of the electric hook-up points

General

  • Small family-run Devon site on the edge of the Blackdown Hills
  • Exeter and south coast beaches within a half-hour drive
  • Easy access from the M5 at Cullompton; walk to a pub and farm shop

Whether you fancy fishing, horse-drawn barge trips or climbing tors, Postwood Gardens Campsite makes for a fine base. This place is a small and peaceful family-run mid Devon site on the edge of the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and five minutes’ drive from Cullompton.

The name Cullompton may be familiar to frequent travellers along the M5, and indeed this site is a handy stopover just a few minutes’ drive from the motorway (or indeed from the A303/A30, 15 minutes’ drive away).

That said, there’s plenty around to keep you occupied for several days if you choose to settle down for a longer break – this site is in prime position for surfing, fishing, moorland hikes, climbing the tors, beach days, family attractions, cycling outings…

Handy amenities are easy to come by too, as Cullompton has a high street full of independent shops, a farmers’ market and a couple of supermarkets. Closer to home, there’s a farm shop in Fordmore or the pub and shop/post office in Kentisbeare, all within walking distance.

Facilities here are simple, as you’d expect from a small site, but guests have access to male and female toilet and shower blocks, a chemical disposal point and a recycling area.

Good site with a few improvements hopefully coming soon09/23/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Non-electric grass touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Quiet site (we were the only ones there on one of our two nights), good toilet and shower facility block, plenty of hot water at the times stipulated. Could be a little cramped at busy times with all pitches occupied. Easy booking process via PitchUp. Straight forward access from M5. Plenty of quiet lanes, local footpath and bridleways.

    Disliked: 

    Pity the dish wash up area is not undercover and does not have hot water. Maybe OK for campervan and caravan users to use their own sink, but a little restrictive for tent users perhaps. However we are aware that the site is under new ownership and is perhaps a proposed improvement, as is the repositioning of the mobile home units which should improve the layout of the site.

This is a lovely friendly, quiet and flat, sheltered campsite. …09/03/2021

    This is a lovely friendly, quiet and flat, sheltered campsite. The ground was quite hard and I struggled with the tent pegs but it hadn't rained for a good while also I have the crummiest tent pegs! Lovely powerful shower with good temperature adjustment, very useful when trying to shower small people! Toilets were always clean and tidy. The site had plenty of space for the children to run about, it was clean and tidy. It was lovely to have recycling bins.
    The only thing which would be a useful improvement is hot water for washing up. I pop this here as it wasn't something I disliked just a little inconvenient for me with a small kettle and a tent!

Thank you, we intent to have hot water at the washing up area by next year

Local attractions

It might be that you’re a savvy fisher already or you’re looking to dip your toes in for the first time. Either way, with Goodiford Mill Fishery (five minutes’ drive) practically around the corner, you’ll be well-set here.

It’s just one of a few places close by that make up a unique set of holiday activities – these include the working Coldharbour Mill’s interactive museum (10 minutes), driving real-life diggers in Diggerland Devon (10 minutes) or the family-friendly assault course challenge on The Bear Trail (10 minutes).

These activities already make some good action for any kids in your group, but Crealy Theme Park (20 minutes) has much more on that front, as does a good horse-drawn barge trip down the Tiverton Canal (15 minutes) or a detour to the entertainment facilities in Exeter city centre (25 minutes).

A natural playground can be found at Sidmouth beach (half an hour). There’s kayaking or canoeing rental here but for cycling and walking (off the coastal path, that is), Exmoor National Park (35 minutes) is a sound choice.

Historical sites also live on around here and that includes the National Trust’s Killerton (15 minutes), a huge 18th-century estate, and the Victorian Knightshayes Court (20 minutes), both royally good for walks and picnics.

Must see

  • Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (10.4 kilometres)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (11.1 kilometres)
  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (17.5 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Killerton (10.9 kilometres)
