Why stay here ...
Coldharbour CL is a quiet site, set on a small farm, two fields away from Devon Wildlife Trust woodland. There are far reaching views to the south towards Salcombe and the sea.
The site itself is 0.5 acre with three hardstandings along the hedge line and the rest of the site is very gently sloping grass. Each pitch has an electric hook-up and plenty of space for an awning etc. There is a chemical toilet point, water taps and a recycling area. Children and pets are welcome; although there may be sheep in the adjoining field, so please keep dogs under control.
A mile down the road at California Cross is a petrol station with a convenience shop and a local pub and restaurant, which has won Devon Life awards in the past few years. The Georgian town of Modbury is three miles away, with a health centre, pharmacy, co-op food store and a range of shops including a delicatessen, hardware store, butchers and post office.
Coldharbour Farm is situated centrally in the beautiful South Hams. The farm is six miles from Bigbury-on-Sea, Bantham and the South West Coast path with its stunning scenery. It is a similar distance from the southern slopes of Dartmoor, with a wealth of opportunities to enjoy the equally beautiful moorland terrain.
Andrew's Wood is the Devon Wildlife Trust woodland which adjoins Coldharbour Farm, providing a wildlife haven for dormice, bats including the greater horseshoe, and woodland birds. It is also a nationally important site for heath lobelia, having the largest population of only six sites in the UK. Within a mile of Coldharbour, at Blackdown Rings, the remains of a medieval fort can be seen, as well as panoramic views.
Whether you are keen to play golf on the local courses including Thurlestone and Bigbury or try watersports at Salcombe, Dartmouth or Plymouth, you are spoilt for choice! Coarse fishing is available at Emperor Lakes less than a mile away.
For the children, Woodlands Adventure Park and Pennywell Farm are both within 10 miles, and both have many attractions whatever the weather. For the railway enthusiast there is a steam train running from Buckfastleigh to Totnes and back.
