General

  • Family-friendly countryside site 20 minutes’ walk from Exmouth beach
  • A 25-minute drive from Crealy Adventure Park and 30 from Exeter
  • Seasonal bar/clubhouse with pool table, table football and beer garden

What do you picture when you think of your fantasy hols? If it’s beaches, stately houses and coastal walks through dinosaur country, then scurry over to Exmouth Country Lodge and Prattshayes Campsite (a green-field site 35 minutes’ drive from Exeter in Devon) to live your dream.

Exmouth Country Lodge is a top spot for venturing out around country and coast: three-mile-long Exmouth beach is a 20-minute walk from the site and it feeds into the Jurassic Coast at Orcombe Point15 minutes down the beach. You can see more of the Devon coastline by picking up the 630-mile South West Coast Path at Exmouth beach, or following the Exe Estuary trail from Exmouth to Exeter and over to Dawlish.

More of a water-based creature? Exmouth Watersports – where you can try out windsurfing, paddleboarding and kayaking on the River Exe – is just a few feet away, or you could stick to Exmouth beach for some swimming and basking.

Back on site, reward yourself for all your hard work by firing up the barbecue, piling it high with calories (pick up supplies from Exmouth, less than 10 minutes’ drive away) and tuck in before heading over to the on-site bar to wash it all down. If you’d prefer to venture off site for your dinner, there are plenty of restaurants worth trying within 10 minutes.

Local attractions

Start your stay at Exmouth Country Lodge and Prattshayes Campsite by sticking close to site, as there’s loads nearby to keep you (and the whole fam) busy.

Head into Exmouth for the Exmouth Museum, then venture a little further out for the World of Country Life park, Hawkridge Bird of Prey Centre, Bicton Park Botanical Gardens and the weird and wonderful 16-sided National Trust property A la Ronde, all less than 15 minutes’ drive from the site.

A la Ronde whetting your appetite for history and stately piles? Fab Powderham Castle is just over half an hour from Exmouth Country Lodge, and is open for tours and lots of special events. If that’s still not quite enough, the museums, underground passages and cathedral of Exeter (worth a visit for shopping and food too) are also a little over half an hour from the site.

If you have kids in tow starting to protest about the walk down (centuries-old) memory lane, there’s oodles nearby to get them back on side… Start 20 minutes away with some go-karting to blow off steam, get their adrenaline pumping on the rides at Crealy Adventure Park (25 minutes), then pile them into the car for a jaunt to Paignton Zoo, less than an hour away.

Must see

  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (10.2 kilometres)
  • Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site (12.0 kilometres)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (15.7 kilometres)

National Trust
