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.

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

And Relax

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.

Entertaining

Hallsdown Farm
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

Hallsdown Farm
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!

Hallsdown Farm
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.
