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 wish more sites were like this

This site has got to feature in our top 10 favorite sites. It is peaceful, welcoming, restful and most enjoyable. We got a personal welcome on arriving, we were able to choose which pitch we wanted and then left to enjoy our holiday in the knowledge that if there was anything we wanted to give Andrew or Claire a shout. We will certainly be visiting again if they will have us. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday.

Fantastic site with Superb facilities

Only stayed one night but the first of many, Friendly people and happy to help you, The showers and toilet are very clean, It's a bit like using your own on suit, The pitches are very big with your own water tap and grey waste disposal, Can't wait to go back as we only live 10 miles away will be ideal for winter weekends.

Peace in glorious surroundings.

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.

What a great CL

We arrived with a warm welcome from Andrew and pitched up on very good hard standing with both fresh and grey water points on all pitches, each pitch has a lot of room so you are not on top of your neighbour. Everything was clean and tidy and well looked after and the toilet was cleaned each day. If you are an animal lover this is the site for you, we were entertained by the Goats,Alpaca,Pigs,Horses ( on the small side) Donkey and the Ducks being put to bed each evening. A big thank you to our hosts Andrew and Claire. Enjoyed every minute.
