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 May, 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.

I can’t add a lot to the other reviews - good serviced HS pitches, immaculate toilet and hand wash basin, friendly owners who gave us a very useful leaflet of information, the list goes on. Above all else, three things stood out for me - the well kept and well thought out site, the peace of the area and the animals. The goats and alpacas (there are now two) were in the field immediately behind the pitches, the ducks and rare breed pigs were opposite, while Gerald the donkey and the miniature Shetland ponies were just outside the CL gate. The O2 mobile signal was good on site being at least 3G at all times. There is also a 20 pitch site run by Andrew and Claire (which looked immaculate) but it is completely separate from the CL and, once on site, you don’t even know it’s there. I’m not usually a fan of sites that will not take dogs, even though we no longer have one. However, having seen the proximity of the animals and the open water of the duck pond, I fully understand the decision to make this a child free and dog free site. Arlington Court NT is nearby and well worth a visit to see the carriage collection alone. Barnstaple, Lynton/Lynmouth and the whole of that stretch of the North Devon Coast are within easy reach. We hope to return.
