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.

Entertaining

We visited in August and selected this CL because it offered serviced pitches. It has been very well thought out and is immaculately maintained. The entertainment is provided by resident goats/ducks/donkey etc.Andrew has a 20 pitch site at the other side of the farm house opened a couple of years ago (Tranquil Sites). This provides showers etc and looks equally well maintained but does not detract from the peacefulness of the CL. We will certainly return. We normally use CL’s and this is certainly at the top of our rankings.

One of the best sites visited

Our stay was one of the very best we have experienced. Welcomed on arrival, plenty of advice on the surrounding area. Facilities were excellent with water, electricity, and grey water disposal on each hardstanding pitch. The site was very well kept and variety of animals and birds kept us amused. The long views from the site most enjoyable. The lane to the site was easy to manage despite some narrow sections, but taking care was all that was needed. If and when we visit North Devon again we shall certainly seek out availability on this very well run CL. Thank you the Mathers!

Excellent!

7 nights on this peaceful site in August. Pitches pretty level and hard standing with water, waste and electric point on each pitch - no carrying! Fabulous views from all the site. Very nice owners who welcomed us on and were very friendly when seen around the site. No hint of "farm" smell from any of the animals, in fact I had to go search for the pigs even to find them. Very very nice stay. My only gripe was the wind and rain all the week, and the one and a half mile narrow lane from the A 399 to the site with no passing places. But DONT let these put you off. Great place - shame its not a bit nearer to Sheffield or we would never be away from the place. I forgot to sign the visitors book - sorry Mrs Mather if you read this, I did mean to leave a good message in it, Thank you.

Peaceful and well kept site

This is a well kept, spacious site with lovely surroundings. The owners are very friendly and we loved all the animals including the donkey, alpacas, goats, ducks etc which added to the ambience of the place. The toilet and wash basin are very clean and there is a small collection of books to borrow. Arlington Court (National Trust) is a 30 min walk away, well worth visiting and a reservoir is 10 min walk away which can be walked around, takes approx an hour. Apart from this the site is pretty remote but ideal if you want to get away from it all, very peaceful and pretty, we would recommend it.
