Why stay here ...

Situated on the fringes of the beautiful Cathedral City of Exeter and bordering the 'East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' (which incorporates the natural World Heritage Site the 'Jurassic Coast') this popular CL site represents an ideal base for discovering the delights of Devon.

Located just 3 miles south of the M5's busy Junction 30 you'll soon find yourself setting up camp in the peace and tranquillity of the countryside. A warm welcome soon follows!

The scenic Exe Estuary Cycle Trail is easily reached, as is the traditional thatched 'Olde Worlde' country pub/restaurant just a short stroll away. The site is linked to a neighbouring village via the public footpath through open fields, perfect dog walking territory! For your convenience a Farm Shop with cafe and takeaway is nearby (we recommend the classic Devon Cream Tea!). Tourist information leaflets are available on site, highlighting some of the many attractions in the close vicinity. Further afield the 'English Riviera' of Torbay or the UK's last great wilderness the 'Dartmoor National Park' is a mere 30 minutes drive.

Set on a small family run dairy farm the site offers a level, spacious, south facing lawned pitches with fine unobtrusive views and wonderful sunsets (weather permitting). The facilities boasts both ladies and gents flush toilets, each with hand wash basin and a large walk in coin operated shower. Electric Hook Ups serves all pitches.

With attractions & activities in close proximity 'The Mallards' serene and pleasant rural setting will provide your perfect country retreat.

Perfect peace and tranquillity

The Mallards
Just returned from a wonderful weekend at The Mallards. Perfect from start to finish. Easy to get to. Good location for site seeing and perfect for relaxing. Warm welcome from Adrian who keeps a CL with high standards of cleanliness and recycling. Pitches all well mown and very spacious. Lovely far reaching views across the Exe Estuary. Pleasant walks from site. Highly recommended.

Exceptionally quiet site

The Mallards
Very good working farm site. Lots of areas to walk the dogs on local footpaths, although restricted on the site due to farm animals. Very welcoming and friendly - pitch clearly marked on arrival. Facilities excellent with separate male and female toilets - luxury. Small charge for the shower. Road leading to the site was quite narrow and not clearly marked, but we got used to it.

Perfect and peaceful

The Mallards
Stayed here for 3 nights and will definitely be back. Apart from the odd tractor (expected in such a rural haven) it was quiet and peaceful. Facilities spotless and well tended by Adrian who was welcoming but unobtrusive. Plenty of space between units with a very chilled and friendly atmosphere. Well placed for exploring various seaside locations but also perfect if you just want somewhere relaxing to chill out.

Away from it all yet close to home

The Mallards
Being only just over an hour down the motorway from home this is the perfect little getaway. The site is very peaceful with chickens and cockerels roaming around. Pitches are well spaced and kept neat and tidy and the shower and WC as always on a CL are a bonus. The owner is very friendly and helpful and comes round daily to greet you and check everything is ok. Being my first time here and knowing I was on my own he was keen to make sure I was here and settled. He is not always able to be here when you arrive, but, very efficiently puts your name on your pitch so you know exactly where you are. The (very small) village is only a short walk down the lane where there is a pub and (apparently) buses to Exeter and Exmouth. Very handy to know. It is fairly easy to find although the last bit up the track to the site could be easily missed as the sign at the end of the lane is not easily seen. However, Adrian is looking to improve this. As others have said it is a very narrow track but only a very short distance so should not be a problem. All in all a great little site. I will definitely be coming again.

weekend away to catch up with friends

The Mallards
Great site, access was interesting as approach road is a typical narrow Devon country lane. but once that was out of the way the stay was most enjoyable. Welcome was very friendly and facilities were what was expected. plenty to see and do in the area. Site was well maintained quiet apart from the odd military helicopter. Will stay there again
