Are there set pitches?
No, it is a ‘free-range’ campsite. You can pitch your tents wherever you like.
Do you allow dogs?
Yes, we are a dog-friendly campsite and welcome well-behaved dogs. Please ensure your dog does not intrude on other camper’s pitches, is kept on a lead or under control when away from your pitch and you pick up its waste and leave in the bins provided.
Do you allow campfires and BBQ’s?
Yes, as long as they have framework to ensure they are kept off the ground so do not burn the grass. We hire out small portable fire pits and BBQ’ s from the farm shop.
Do you allow campervans, motorhome and caravans?
We welcome campervans (7 metres and under) but unfortunately are unable to take bookings for caravans and large motorhomes. The narrow single Devon country lanes leading to our campsite are not suitable for these vehicles.
What facilities do you have on-site?
We have compost toilets, urinals, showers, washing up points, a powder room and communal hangout shed. We also have a farm shop on-site. For more information about these, please see our facilities page.
Do you have an on-site shop?
Yes, we have a small farm shop supplying locally sourced produce such as sausages, eggs, bread as well as other food and drink items (milks, tinned goods, fruit and veg) and camping essentials such as logs, charcoal, toilet paper etc. Here you can hire out BBQ’s and fire-pits. The farm shop is run with a cash honesty box so please bring change in order to pay for your goods.
Are there fridges or freezers on-site?
We do not provide fridges, but there is a freezer in the farm shop which campers are welcome to use for storing ice blocks.
Is there electricity for charging devices?
The campsite is off-grid and aside from solar lights, there is no electricity in the fields. But we do offer the use of power points at reception for charging devices for a small fee (Phones £1, e-bike batteries £3).
Do you have electric hook-ups?
No, we are an off-grid campsite and so do not offer hook-ups.
Do you have a disposal facility for chemical waste from my campervan toilet?
No, we are unable to dispose of chemical waste on our farm.
What is the check-in procedure?
Check-in is between 14.30- 19.00. Please let us know in if you if you want to request check-in earlier or later and we will do our best to accommodate this. On arrival, please pay the remainder of your balance in cash into the letterbox using the envelopes provided.
What time is check-out?
Do you allow large group bookings?
We welcome groups of campers. We are a family friendly, peaceful campsite and ask that large groups do not disrupt their neighbouring campers. We do not take bookings for any under-18’s unless accompanied by adults.
Do you have rules on music and noise regulation?
We ask that music is kept to a low level so as not to disturb your fellow campers and all music is turned off at 10pm. We have a low noise policy from 10pm to 8am.
Is there a place nearby where I can launch my kayak/SUP board or boat onto the Salcombe Estuary?
You can access the creek by walking down a footpath to the bottom of our farm. This is a good place to launch a SUP board, but as it is a steep hill to climb back up, it is not advisable to carry a kayak down to this point. South Pool village has a pontoon (a 5 minute drive/ 10 minute walk from the campsite), which is a good place to launch a boat or kayak. Please note that these parts on the estuary are only accessible 2-3 hours either side of high tide, depending on the height of the tides and size of vessel. We provide tide tables at the campsite.
Do you recommend any local pubs/ beaches/ activities?
We are spoilt for choice by the beaches, pubs, restaurants and things to do in our area. Please see our ‘local information’ page on our website. We also provide ‘Tourist Information’ packs and maps at the campsite and are available to answer any questions about the local area.
What is your environmental policy?
We love our farm and believe that as custodians of the land, we have a responsibility to ensure the campsite is as low impact as possible. The campsite is off-grid and we use compost toilets and solar powered lights. At the end of the season the camping fields become home again to our Jersey herd and sheep. So we ask all campers to respect the land and leave it as they found it. Please do not leave behind any discarded tents or camping equipment and use our recycling facilities for disposing of rubbish. Thank-you!
What is your Covid-19 protocol?
We provide hand sanitiser throughout the campsite and thoroughly clean our facilities regularly. Our staff wear PPE when attending the facilities and we ask everyone to adhere to national social distancing rules where possible. For our detailed CV-19 protocol, please see this page on our website.
How do I find the campsite?
Please look at our ‘How to find us’ page for directions.
What is your cancellation policy?
We take a non-refundable deposit upon booking. Please let us know if you wish to cancel before your arrival, so we can offer the space to other campers. The remainder of your balance will be payable on arrival. Please note that we cannot offer any refund if you wish to cut your holiday short due to bad weather.
