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.

Peaceful site with beautiful views.

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!

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.

A lovely farm CL with stunning views

If, as we do, you like quiet CLs in out-of-the way locations, they don't come much better than this one. The site itself is level, with plenty of room for 5 outfits to pitch without encroaching on your neighbours. Having said that, we enjoyed 6 nights to ourselves here in early June. The views across to Dartmoor are stunning. This is an off-grid CL so you'll need a well-charged leisure battery or solar panel if staying for more than a couple of days, but John the owner is happy to offer battery charging if required. The site offers great walking opportunities down to the picturesque harbour villages of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers, which have some great pubs, among other attractions. One thing to note is that driving on the narrow Devon lanes, both to access the site via the excellent directions that John provides by email if you pre-book, and also driving solo whilst exploring the area can be a bit stressful, but take care and you should be OK. The upside of this is that you'll need to travel far to find a more tranquil setting in which to stay.

Its all been said

Have just returned from this nice basic CL. Agree with all previous comments. A 'basic' CL is all we ever seek and John provides this. We may be back.

New !

This new CL is a level well drained field ideally situated near Noss Mayo. We stayed on a rainy October night and had no difficulties with well drained (high) field. Water and waste facilities all new. Farmer John very helpful and cheerful. There is a great walk - even on a wet night - down to the harbour of Noss Mayo and Newton Ferrers with a couple of welcoming Pubs. In summer this will be stunning, we will be back.
