Riverside Caravan and Camping Park: Grass pitches by lakes

General

  • On 70 acres of landscaped parkland close to Exmoor
  • South Molton 10 minutes' drive; 40 minutes from sandy beaches
  • Three fishing lakes, shop and country club with bar and restaurant

If a caravan park has 'Riverside' in its name, you might reckon you might get some fishing. And you'd be right: South Molton's Riverside Caravan and Camping Park has three specimen lakes stocked with quality carp, and more exploring can be availed of at the nearby river Mole.

The site sits on 70 acres of landscaped parkland with ten acres of mature woodland running alongside the river Mole: as you might also reckon, it's all mighty pretty.

Riverside is a family-friendly park and has a play area and an on-site shop. A new country club was added in 2017, with a bar and restaurant, serving homemade food and a selection of local lagers, ciders and ales. It's a popular venue for the variety of entertainment on site, or for settling down for a quiet time during the day to use the free wifi.

AA 5 pennants

Great family site , friendly staff , level pitches , great playground08/06/2022

    very nice site , plenty of space for tents without electric hook-up. We basically had the field to ourselves. Toilet facilities were ok . Washing up area was ok. People on site were very helpful and friendly. level pitches . Fabulous playground for the kids. Great little river that kids could play in.

    Disliked: 

    Some of the toilets were clearly out of use which in a building of 6 , 3 wernt in use. The showers were ok but the time they were on for could have been longer, no sooner had you put shampoo on your hair the shower went off. The shop on site could have had a few more items that campers would use , i.e milk , bread , eggs, bacon ect as campers without electric would need these items regularly. On other campsites we have been on they give you times that the shower blocks would be out of use due to cleaning , maybe this is something this campsite would think about doing as people were going to the blocks and would have to walk to the other block as it was being cleaned. No bins outside near washing up sinks but the other block had 2 ... maybe introduce these so people washing up can empty the waste bits into the bin rather than washing it down the sink , like up at the other block.

    Disliked: 

    Paying £2.50 for a cheap version of a fruit shoot, drinks were expensive so I'd take your own.
    Shame about the traffic, its very close to the main road.
    Dog owners, pick up your dog pooh around the lake!

Directions

Local attractions

If you'd prefer something more active than fishing, it's a 15-minute drive to the Exmoor National Park for miles of scenic walks, mountain bike trails and lots more outdoorsy antics. Canoeing at Wimbleball Lake and beginners' climbing at Valley of Rocks are among the popular picks, as are pony treks and horse riding days through countryside and along the coast.

Speaking of the coast, there's much to enjoy here too: head west for the surf beaches around Croyde and Appledore, or north to Ilfracombe for more beach, the aquarium and boat trips to the island of Lundy. It'll take you 40 minutes or so to hit either stretch of coast.

Kid-friendly days out nearby include heritage rides on the Lynton & Barnstaple Railway (half an hour's drive), animal encounters at Exmoor Zoo (20 minutes) and Combe Martin Wildlife & Dinosaur Park (half an hour) and easy pedals along the traffic-free Tarka Trail from Barnstaple (15 minutes).

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (24.0 kilometres)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (36.8 kilometres)
  • Castle Drogo (37.1 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Arlington Court and the National Trust Carriage Museum (17.1 kilometres)
  • Watersmeet (21.6 kilometres)
