Why stay here ...

The CL at Great Prideaux Farm is a peaceful site set on a working organic farm. The site has far reaching views of Dartmoor, the coast and the countryside.

The farm and surrounding area are set within the South Devon AONB.

The site is a wonderful base for exploring the stunning local area and coastline. The South West coast path is within half a mile and there are a number of nearby beaches including Mothecombe Beach, famous for the filming of Sense and Sensibility and other films.

There are many pretty villages nearby including Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo which are old fishing villages situated either side of the River Yealm. They are to be found within two miles (one mile on foot) of the site and have two churches, three pubs, a Post Office, Village shop, Yacht Club and a small Co-op store. Dartmouth, Salcombe, Totnes, Kingsbridge and Plymouth are all within easy driving distance.

The site at Great Prideaux is located off a quiet lane. It is level and there is mains water and a chemical closet emptying point (polite note to visitors – please use organic toilet fluid). There is ample space for your awning etc.

John looks forward to welcoming you to his CL. The site will suit all visitors and well behaved pets.

Pure tranquility!

Great Prideaux Farm
This site is gorgeous! I would however urge you to stick to the arrival time as the final approach is a single track with only one passing place - I think it’s mainly farm traffic and it’s few and far between but I would not want to meet anyone else. The views are unrivaled, there is no whirring traffic, just birdsong which is quite a revelation. There’s a path down to Noss Mayo from the site and it takes about 20 minutes (then another 10 to the pubs). I don’t know how long it takes on the way back as we always took the road route (50 minutes amble) as we couldn’t face the steepness of the return journey! The pubs in Noss Mayo are welcoming and the fish and chips in The Swan are quality and delicious. You can walk over to Newton Ferrers via a causeway over the estuary and there you will find a Co-op, a pharmacy and another excellent pub snd don’t worry if the tide comes in you can still get back to the site.. Just book and enjoy particularly if you like walking!

Perfect place for a relaxing stay

Great Prideaux Farm
We stayed here for four nights and were really happy with our stay. Beautiful views, peaceful, easy access to the coast path and a lovely walk down the paths to pubs in Noss Mayo. John and family were very welcoming and helpful. Note the need for your own toilet facilities - our toilet tent was invaluable. There is a chemical disposal point though.

A lovely place to dtay

Great Prideaux Farm
If you want a lovely secouded place to camp with minimal facilities then this is the place for you. Lovely views across rolling countryside towards Dartmoor. There is a half a mile approach lane with a few passing places which is not a problem if people leave before 12.00 and don't arrive until after. The coast path is a twenty minute walk away and it is stunning. About 20 minutes down a track brings you into Nose Mayo. At the moment there's some deep mud about half way along.....John any chance of a few stepping stones here. It was just what we wanted...well kept, quiet with access to lovely places. We'll be back.

Peaceful site with beautiful views.

Great Prideaux Farm
Lovely simple site with a stunning view up onto Dartmoor. It is a pleasant walk down to Nos Mayo & Newton Ferrers, with the amazing Ship Inn. Newton Ferrers has a small Coop corner shop and if you fancy the exercise bring a rucksack to carry the groceries home up the hill. Great walking around including an all morning walk around the headland coast path with (conveniently) the Ship Inn on the way home. No electric hook up here, but we stayed 14 nights in our caravan with our roof mounted 100W solar panel keeping the battery topped up just fine. Most of the time we were the only ones on this beautiful site. Great farmer too.

Fantastic site!

Great Prideaux Farm
Peaceful and isolated, no hook-ups so make sure you can manage without electricity although battery-charging is offered. Lovely views across to Dartmoor. Noss Mayo with a couple of pubs is within walking distance, although a steep climb back up. Lovely scenery in the whole area. Access to some beautiful beaches although driving in the narrow Devon lanes can be...interesting at times! For cyclists (and walkers) there's the Sir Francis Drake Way which can be accessed just north of Plymouth and runs to Tavistock, all off-road. Organic Farm shop about 10 minutes drive away. We loved it, just our kind of site. I noticed another reviewer mentioned recycling. No obvious recycling bins but we asked about this and Mr Sherrell said to put our recycling separately and he'd put it in with his. I would thoroughly recommend this site to anyone who wants to completely relax.
