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.

Great little site.

Really impressed. Nice pitches with plenty of space between each other. Plenty to do nearby. Very welcoming. Enjoyed watching all the animals nearby will be back soon.

Great CL in North Devon

We had a week here in June. The weather was really good, if a little too hot, although the site did get some lovely breeze so it wasn't too bad. The CL is great. We loved having the fully serviced pitch, such a treat not having to carry water and waste around. The animals were a nice attraction too, not everyday we eat breakfast with an Alpaca in a field behind us! We would certainly recommend Hallsdown Farm and would love to visit again next time we can get to Devon.

Beautiful Hallsdown

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in the middle of April 2018 and it was beautiful. Lovely Andrew was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. His pet goats are so friendly. We hand fed them swede which they absolutely loved but best to check with Andrew what they can and can't eat. Valley of rocks walk down in Linton is spectacular... take a camera, and town of Linton is lovely too. We'd been in Linton before but this CL was the best we've been to in years. Andrew gave us a very well put together information leaflet (written by Claire) that includes everything you need to know about the local area pubs,shops, doctors, dentist and more. We'll definitely come back here later this year.

Oe of the best

Visited during an extremely wet & windy week but was really impressed with the welcome and also the views, position and tranquility. Great serviced hard standing pitches, toilet available in information hut. Will definitely return when next wanting to visit North Devon.

We Loved it Here

After choosing an area I knew of this cl as it had been mentioned on the club website. After reading the reviews and checking out Google Earth everything about ticked our boxes. All was as we had expected but a little confusing when we entered as it did not look like the website. All became clear though. The cl had moved to the other side of the farm house and the old field had been changed to a commercial site, a good piece of diversification as I'm sure once it gets known it will be popular. The cl and other site are nothing to do with each other. The field was very gently sloping but the pitches had been levelled and hard cored for the van. All had ehu, water and drainage points. There is a wooden hut in the top corner which houses a WC and info room. The location is secluded down a lane about a mile from the main road. It is narrow for a short stretch but shouldn't pose a problem. The location as it is, made for a silent site and there being no light pollution it was also very dark on a night. The owners had a pet’s corner of animals. Behind the caravans the field had 3 goats, an Alpaca and two pot bellied pigs, In front of the vans a small lake had a variety of ducks (not the common Mallard) and then on the approach drive there were Shetland ponies and a donkey. As old as we are these gave us some amusement and a talking point with the owners. The site is a little exposed being on the western edge of Exmoor but with distant views through the trees on one side of the site. Just a very short walk up the lane takes you to a small reservoir with perimeter walk and in the other direction in 1/2 mile there is a small farm shop. The nearest beach/town is at Combe Martin with some great coastal walks along the edge of the moor. Local pubs are plentiful for drinks and eats. This is an adult’s only site presumably because of the pond and no dogs because of the pets. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here even though the weather was poor. We would certainly return if in this area again. The owners were both very pleasant and had time to chat when we saw them out and about.
