What a cracking site

Plymptons Farm
We were touring Devon and Cornwall in out motor home(7.5m) and rang on the off chance for a couple of nights stay. We were not disappointed with this site, we found it easily and we managed very easily the access and the parking on grass. The weather had not been very kind and the grass was sodden but we had no issues parking up or moving off. A couple of caravaners were towing with BMW's and they had no troubles. The site is very peaceful, no light pollution, a great location and beautifully kept. Yes there is a single track road behind but it appears only farm vehicles occasionally use it and a couple of cars. The pitches are very well spaced out and are level ish!! The owner Mrs Payne was a delight and nothing was too much trouble. Cracking site, we would recommend and certainly use it again.

Lovely quiet, relaxing site

Plymptons Farm
Spent 5 nights here in June 22. Site is only a couple of miles off the A361 and easy to find. Access is straightforward, following the published directions. The site is quiet, with little traffic noise. The pitches are along one side of a large fishing lake and most of the guests seem to be anglers. Although not a fisherman myself, the lake and surroundings are really pretty and hold a good deal of wildlife, so sitting out in the evening is a real pleasure. The site has 3 water taps along the back hedge, the toilet point is easily accessible and there are bins for recycling. There aren't a lot of footpaths in the area, so walking from the site is mainly along quiet lanes. There are some lovely towns and villages around. We would definitely return.

Lovely Site with lovely owners

Plymptons Farm
We have just spent 6 nights here and what a find! We love Exmoor and normally stay at Exmoor House in Dulverton but the last time we went there it was so, so busy! We wanted somewhere where we could relax and switch off and Plymptons Farm delivered that - and more. Tranquil (we didn’t notice my traffic noise but did hear an owl!), beautiful and the owners are just lovely. We drive a large A Class motorhome and we also tow a little car which we unhitched in the lay-by off of the A361. We then drove separate down the little lane to the site (just in case we needed to reverse) but didn’t meet anything. The site was spotless with recycling facilities available. Electric hook up, easy access to water and good tv reception. We had tried to book The Masons Arms before leaving home but they were fully booked so left our name and number in case they had a cancellation. They phoned on the Saturday to say that they had a spot for us in the bar (ideal as we have a dog). The food there is fantastic and for £24.95 a head for 3 courses, well worth a visit. We also visited South Molton market on the Saturday morning and have walked miles around this beautiful area. All in all this place was ideal for us and I will miss the geese and the sunsets. Thank you for making us so welcome. We will be back …. Belinda, John and Elodie 🐾

A wet weekend

Plymptons Farm
Site booked via phone with no issues. Currently £15 a night. Last section of roads (off the A361) are tight in places but fine to traverse with care. (Follow the directions given for the site). Site entrance was wide and ok to pull in and out of. Two hard standing and the other three pitches are grass. On a very wet weekend in March the grass (unsurprisingly) was sodden and even the hard standing was very wet. Turning onto the pitches was tricky due to the wet grass surrounding the hard standings but just about doable with a 4x4. Would also probably be okay with a motor mover. The outlook across the lake was really nice with distant views beyond. There was more traffic than we'd expected on the road directly behind the pitches but this in no way detracted from the peace and quiet of the site. Mrs Payne is lovely owner. Good TV signal and 4g with O2 and EE. Definitely a site added to our revisit list.

Superb site and lovely owners

Plymptons Farm
We ended up here after a disastrous experience in booking 10 days at a nearby site, having arrived late afternoon but having to relocate that same day. The welcome from Mrs Payne was wonderful and exactly the opposite of the other site. The site is lovely, gently sloping lawn leading to a lake with coarse fishing in it. The area is very peaceful and pretty convenient to all the main towns in North Devon and close to the edge of Exmoor. We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed it very much (perhaps a little less than our neighbour who spent every early morning and most evenings fishing, productively, about 15 metres from his 'van). South Molton has an excellent indoor 'Pannier Market' to visit. Mrs Payne, the owner was a delight, very cheerful and helpful all of the time. The nearest restauraunt is the Michelin starred Masons Arms but there are are good ones nearby. If you have a dog we'd recommend the London Inn in Molland, 16th Century quainteness with very good food and service. Watch out for pheasants in the late summer/autunn - there were literally hundreds in or around the narrow roads to Molland. Was there a down side? Not for us, but we are used to the high sided very narrow roads of North Devon and know the road signs really mean what they say. Sometimes the tight climbing or descending narrow roads (its rarely level in N Devon) are challenging with a caravan on tow but the local folk are not aggressive in their driving and understand that reversing a caravan up a narrow lane isn't a 'normal driving skill'. We will be back and will stay longer next time.
