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 Touring 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.

i am so sorry you had this experience with noise? this is very unusual for our site. In fact, this is the first time it has happened as far as I am aware? we are usually praised for the quietness of the site.

    small point only could do with more showers and toilets for campers but no doubt will there in near future

From the manager...

Thank you for your kind comments and suggestion. I am not sure if you saw pitch 0? This is close to the shower block. When we fitted the cabins and caravans, we future proofed it by putting in drainage, water and electrics to that pitch. This is going to be the disabled unisex toilet and shower block, but unfortunely this will not be for a few years yet as we need to raise the money first. We look forward to seeing you again.

    Such a fantastic quiet little site! 16 large and spacious pitches set within woodland with a large central grass play area, clean toilets and shower and the most friendly and accommodating on-hand owners who are also making this an eco-friendly site with lots more ideas in the pipeline.
    Electric and non-electric pitches.

    We eat at a lovely traditional pub less than a mile away called Keepers Cottage Inn. The food was just amazing. Proper home cooked food.

    Especially great for anyone with younger children, Diggerland is only a short distance away.
    This would also be a fantastic stop for tourers, and being approximately 3 miles from the M5, it would make a peaceful retreat overnight.
    During our stay, we also had a chat with two men who were cycling from Lands End to John O’Groats.

    We would definitely stay here again. This is the campsite to look out for if you’re in the area.

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)
