Wilton Farm is a South Devon Campsite set in the glorious South Hams with stunning views across to Salcombe. Nestled atop the rolling hills opposite Salcombe, the campsite has access to South Devon’s finest beaches, food, walks, wildlife & attractions. Visitors in 2015 have rated our campsite 8.4/10* in its very first year. Read first hand what they have to say :
“Location is amazing with great views of Salcombe and an ideal base to explore South Hams.”
“The peace and quiet of the Devonshire countryside and the spectacular views and sunsets! Also in good location for various beaches and close to the beautiful Kingsbridge.”
“We enjoyed discovering the creek and ‘The Glade’ in particular; we also visited nearby towns and beaches – the children participated in the tug of war at a local regatta (the mud race was a bit out of our league!) We found the environmentally considerate ethos admirable. All the best bits about being outside, with the convenience of well kept facilities, and a farm shop.”
Reviews from pitchup.com
Wilton Farm is a South Devon Campsite with a difference :
- In year 1, we scored 8.4/10 on pitchup.com with several 10/10 scores. Have a look at what Wilton Farm campers have said about their time here
- Unspoilt views across to Salcombe and the local village of South Pool
- Private estuary access, allowing you to take small boats, kayaks and canoes along the Kingsbridge Estuary to Salcombe (amongst other locations)
- A magical wooded glade where a family member got married in 2014 and now is a calming place to relax & enjoy the wilds of this idyllic South Devon setting
- Fantastic food nearby at the family friendly Globe Inn in Frogmore & the wonderful Pigs Nose which won “South Devon Pub of the Year” in 2013 and happens to be the most southern pub in Devon. The Pigs Nose is known for its musical prowess with the owner Peter Distin Webber having been in the music industry for 40 years. The Boomtown Rats have played there & don’t be surprised if the likes of Paul Young come to perform an intimate gig whilst you’re visiting the area. Plus you may be so lucky as to hear our very own Paul Evans take to the microphone…only if you’re very very lucky 😉 Check out their upcoming music events
- Multiple walks including to one of the most exposed peninsulas on the English coast named Start Point. This walk from East Prawle provides breathtaking panoramas, idyllic coves, ample wildlife & rugged South Devon coastline (you may even spot a seal or two!)
- Passenger ferry across to Salcombe in easy distance of the campsite
- Very competitive accommodation in South Devon with prices starting from just £5 per night
- As a working farm we also have on-site fresh farm food including fruit, vegetables, sausages, bread & milk
- Eco-friendly approach. No hook-ups in order to reduce impact to the land & eco-friendly compost toilet
- We often have chickens or ducklings on site to visit & feed

South Devon Campsite near the beach
Wilton Farm campsite is lucky enough to be situated in easy distance of several beautiful South Devon beaches including the trio that make up East Portlemouth – Mill Bay, Fisherman’s Cove & Smalls Cove – and the famous surfing beach of Bantham.
Mill Bay is in an Area of Natural Beauty run by the National Trust. It sits directly opposite Salcombe & also has historical significance. This beach, alongside Salcombe, was used to repair damaged landing craft in WW2 (1944-1945). You can still see some of the tracks used to pull the craft on to the beach for repair. This beach is also dog-friendly all year round meaning there is no need to leave the pooch at home when you come to visit!
Bantham is a short drive away and has been named number 6 in The Lonely Planet’s 2015 guide to the 10 best beaches in Europe – the only English beach on the list. Bantham is loved by surfers, families and walkers alike thanks to it’s reliable surf, beautiful golden sands, dunes and the glorious South West Coast Path. There is a lovely pub to eat called the Sloop owned by friends of ours called Rod & Nick! Just around the corner you find Bigbury Bay with Burgh Island opposite which houses the art deco hotel. This hotel once hosted some very famous guests including Agatha Christie (Poirot was also filmed here previously), Noel Coward, Prince Edward and Wallis Simpson. At low tide at Bigbury Bay, you can walk over to Burgh Island and enjoy stunning 360 panoramic views across the wonderful coastline. This is also the time to go and investigate the rock pools which are exposed at low tide, a great time to explore with the whole family.
