Why stay here ...

For peace and quiet set in a rural location in Greater Exmoor, our level, serviced pitches offer 16 amp EHU, individual tap and grey waste drain, with stunning views of both Exmoor and Dartmoor.

Hallsdown Farm is a working sheep farm, lambing in spring, you would be welcome to see what goes on in the lambing shed, at other times of year there is always something to see and our pet goats, pigs, ducks, alpaca and donkey will do their best to amuse you.

We are well situated for a walking holiday and many make us their base whilst walking the coastal path. If you would prefer to walk directly from the site a short walking distance will take you to the Wistlandpound Reservoir offering woodland walks, cycling and activity trails for all to enjoy. Trout fishing and bird watching are also available. It is also possible to access the National Trust Arlington Court estate offering walking for all abilities.

We are well located for exploring the North Devon coast, the famous villages of Lynton and Lynmouth connected by the cliff railway, and the Exmoor National Park. A five minute drive will take you to the National Trust property of Arlington Court which houses the National Trust Carriage Museum. Other local attractions include the Lynton and Barnstaple Steam Railway, Exmoor Zoo at Bratton Fleming, and the spectacular North Devon beaches (nearest 5 miles). Visit the historic market towns of Barnstaple and South Molton boasting traditional Pannier Markets. There is a local farm shop within half a mile of the site.

Hallsdown is an adults only and sorry no dogs site you are welcome to bring along any other type of pet. On site we offer a modern toilet and washroom with hot and cold water and a very well stocked tourist information shed.

Andrew and Claire look forward to welcoming you to a very lovely part of the country.

first time in devon

Hallsdown Farm
we received info ref not to follow sat nav, which was useful, narrow lanes etc. we were greeted by claire who pointed out the facilities. andrew was always knocking around doing his cleaning regime or cutting the grass etc, feeding the animals, we chose next to end pitch and the views were lovely. there were animals around the farm also chickens and ducks. very quaint and peaceful. the facilities were, to be honest, on a CL site, in my opinion POOR, ok there was a toilet, a handwash basin, albeit in a shed, a toilet(literally) for emptying cassettes, and ample bins for waste. had we known of the "other " field we would have booked that instead. the "other" field had very superior facilities opposed to the CL site.

Hallsdown Farm
Easy to find and navigate to. Lovely well maintained, peaceful site with great views (we were lucky to be on the end which definitely had the best). Short but efficient welcome (I don't need anything more). Clean toilet, bin area, waste. Easy travel to local areas. For most of our 4 night stay the weather was wet and windy so spent in the caravan. However, with the views, farm goats, larma, sheep and birds to watch the time went by. Most important for us was to have peace and tranquility. We got that - I think I might have counted 10 cars go by all day and the nights were just soundless - bliss. Farm shop 1/2 mile away is well worth a visit too. Just one cautionary, like I said, we were on the end pitch and I only had a 6m water hose and the tap was at least 10m away so needed to fill AR manually - no big deal and I'm now the proud owner of a 15m hose!!

Nice site But!!!

Hallsdown Farm
I can't complain about the pitch as it was a fully serviced pitch, all level and good spacing between. All the views were fantastic and the surrounding animals was very entertaining. Our experience with the owners wasn't good, very unhelpful and sour faced to be fair. We were holidaying with our friends who were staying elsewhere, our phone signal was at zero and we couldn't stay in touch with them. I did ask politely at the reception for the WIFI password so I could message our friends, to be told by the owner that because we were CAMC we weren't allowed to use this facility this was for all other guests. The next encounter with the owners was when our friends dropped us off, as we had been at the beach all day with all our gear my friend said ill drop you at the caravan, he didn't even leave his car, next the owner was harassing my friend and saying I wasn't being fair to other guests. I was so mad i very nearly left the site, if i had somewhere else to go I would have. I wouldn't recommend this site only because of the owners attitude towards us and CAMC members. Their website isn't clear and none of it applies to the CAMC members anyway.

Perfect, tranquil pitch

Hallsdown Farm
Having just returned from this lovely CL we just have to sing it’s praises. Being new to CLs not caravanning persay we have been delighted with this and the previous ones we have visited. The standard of service at Hallsdown has been first class. We had the end pitch giving spectacular views over the Devon countryside. All the pitches were on flat hardstandings with EHU, grey water drain and fresh water tap. Caravans were well spaced out ensuring privacy if needed. There were lots of animals to entertain, goats an alpaca, pigs and ponies to name but a few and none of them were at all noisy. Beaches were within half an hour drive and Woolacombe and Saunton Sands a little further were particularly nice and spacious, even though they were well used. We would certainly use this site again. Our congratulations to Andrew and Claire on producing such a lovely CL. The Smiths

Hallsdown Farm
We stayed here over the May day bank holiday weekend and I have to stay what a lovely well thought out CL. The pitches are pretty level and have EHU, a Water tap and a grey waste drain on hard standing. The grass area around the pitches are very well maintained. It was so peaceful and had great views. In the field next to the site there are goats, sheep, an Alpaca, a couple of pigs and down the drive there was 2 x mini Shetland ponies and a donkey and some chickens. There is also a couple of little ponds with ducks. Owners are friendly and informative. If you book here you wont regret it, just don't tell everyone please, as we will definitely been wanting to book again.
