General

  • Secluded farm site close to Newton Abbot
  • A 10-minute drive from Exeter, Torquay and Teignmouth
  • Woodland walks all around and fishing lake and café/pub/shop on site

Haldon View Campsite is a secluded site set on a farm close to Newton Abbot. It's 10 minutes from Exeter, Torquay and Teignmouth so is an excellent base for a holiday in Devon.

The area is safe, with plenty of woodland walks including one from the site over a stream bridge and along a bridlepath to a country pub on the left and a restaurant and village on the right. Guests are welcome to walk dogs but please clean up any mess.

Haldon View also has a fishing lake, and a café/shop/pub with a wide range of drinks, goods and hot food.

Facilities include four toilets, two showers, a washing-up sink and a washer dryer. Facilities are provided free of charge: the site owners ask that all guests please leave them In a clean tidy condition, as this will help them keep costs down and have lower prices for their pitches.

Please note

Bookings must not be for more than 42 consecutive nights.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

This is a family-friendly site, so children will be playing on the swings and around the grounds. If you're likely to find this overly noisy, this may not be the site for you.

For the safety of children there are no cars allowed within the main camping area. If you need to park by your tent then please choose an electric grass pitch which is for motorhomes, tents and caravans. Pitches are no more than 50 metres from car park and most are a lot closer.

    What an awesome site, with shepherd’s huts, caravans and even an incredible double decker bus. We stayed in one of the huts, super comfortable, spotless linen and close to the clean toilet/shower block.
    The staff were friendly and very knowledgeable about the local attractions and pubs, and the location was perfect for exploring the moors, seaside towns etc
    I would highly recommend this site!

    Disliked:

    We loved staying here. There is no parking on the pitches which we found great as it meant we didn't have to worry about our children running around and playing outside. There weren't many toilets or showers however at no point during our week stay, did we have to queue to use them! The campsite was clean and staff were friendly and helpful. There was one family who put a dampener on our visit by attacking my boy and being generally not a nice family but that could happen at any campsite you visit. We are hoping to stay again next year.

Hi Vanessa
Glad you enjoyed your stay, it was a real shame about the family we had staying on site, they did cause a lot of upset and have caused a few bad reviews! They will not be allowed here again so don't worry!
See you next year.

Sorry we had to kick you off the site but we cant have your type here, you were very rude to others and this behaviour will not be tolerated. There was no need to lie in your feedback! The 3 other campers were all decent families.

    The facilities, especially the park for the children. The location was perfect as it was easy to get to where we wanted to go.

    Disliked: 

    The staff, there was an incident whilst we were on camp that made us uncomfortable and fear for our potential safety. There was no one available for us to contact that evening and the next day we felt as though it wasn’t addressed because the camp is ‘self service’. This only happened on our last night and there were no other issues but by the sounds of it there have been similar incidents on camp. Just a heads up that there may be conflict when you’re there.

From the manager...

Hello
Thanks for your comments, I am aware of a low life family causing problems on site and apologise, sadly we cant vet the guests before they arrive, they have been blocked from booking again. There is always someone available on the phone if needed, these details are emailed to every guest.

    Small family friendly site. Our pitch was overlooking the play area so was great for us we could relax on our pitch with our children playing in sight. Had a small shop on site for the essentials and served some wicked ciders.

    I love this site. Staff are friendly site is small and quirky. The best bit is no cars near the pitches so kid's can be kids. Definitely looking to rebook next year.
    Pitches do slope but thats been part of the fun :) showers and toilets clean and tidy great that there is a decent washing machine and tumble dryer there that are reasonably priced.
    Thank you Simon and Dave for making us welcome and giving our kids awesome summer memories...
