Beautiful and peaceful

Upham Farm
We stayed for 13 nights and loved it. We didn't use the toilet facilities but had a look at them and they were pristine so don't be put of by earlier reviews. It is a site on a fishery but the CL is set back from the lakes so I really don't understand the previous negative comments about the noise from fishermen which we certainly didn't experience, neither did we experience any cars racing down the lane to the fishery and we were there for 13 nights! There are 4 hard standing level pitches with a large area of grass to the side and a couple of well drained grass pitches. There is good recycling but advisable to come prepared with compostable food waste bags. Non recyclable rubbish must be disposed of away from site but that wasn't a problem. The owner is always a phone call away if needed and is very approachable. Lovely farm shop nearby meaning we hardly needed to visit a supermarket and a pub close by. We will definitely return to this lively pristine CL.

Super little CL

Upham Farm
Stayed a couple of nights at this fantastic CL. It is nicely kept and you are able to walk around the numerous fishing lakes next to the site. Owner is friendly and very helpful and always around should you need him. Would definitely use again either for an overnight stop or longer stay.

Super and great value

Upham Farm
We have just spent a week here.Its a super spot,walks round fishing lakes with gosling's,geese,ducks , many more birds too numerous to name. Easy access onto pitch ,easy drive to beaches , and walks on common,so much to do in locality,park and ride 10mins away farm shop near.There is a bus that goes right past the end of the track where do is sited,so that's great for motorbikers with their free bus passes. The toilets are meant for fishermen so they should not come into the discussion,I feel the club should remove these comments,I did however clean one and basin! as a token of my gratitude rather than complaining! We will certainly be back.Great spot.Welcome ,friendly host.

One of the best we have stayed at.

Just returned from a Bank Holiday break, and what a fabulous find this CL was! Beautifully kept, with hard standings, though we elected to use a grass pitch, perfect for stretching the dog’s legs in a morning with a stroll round the fishing lakes - so much nicer than trudging round the streets. Even though it rained heavily on Sunday, drainage on the grass pitch was no problem. Driver30’s review puzzled me. Why use toilets meant for anglers when you have your van with all facilities? If I have one negative comment, it’s TV reception. The handbook says it’s good, but we didn’t manage to tune into a single channel. Hurray for DVDs. We can’t wait to return, Thank you Mr Willcocks for a great stay, despite the dodgy weather.

the perfect break

Upham Farm
A lovely site in a beautiful setting, next to fishing lakes, well maintained by the owner and now with electric hookups installed since our last visit. Well situated for Exeter, coast and moors with bus route 1/2 mile away. Farm shop is also close by. We'll be back!
