Why stay here ...

Gosford Park CL is situated in the beautiful East Devon countryside we are a working farm with lovely views  to the South East. We have easy access just one minute from the A30 yet retaining the peace and tranquility of the country.

Sidmouth, Exmouth and Exeter are all within easy driving distance and local attractions such as Crealy Park and Escot Park which hosts the Beautiful Days Festival are close to hand.

Cadhay Country House is within walking distance and is open during the summer.

Bicton Park  Botanical Gardens is also close to hand and is around a 15 minute drive.

Shore fishing is readily available from the shore in Ladrum Bay Exmouth and the local fishing village of Beer. Trout and carp fishing is available close by at South View Fisheries Exeter and Upton Lakes Colompton.

The Jurassic coast starts from Seaton extending eastwards for ten miles.

Skydiving and hot air ballooning is available locally for the more adventurous visitor as well as a good selection of country pubs and restaurants.

You can enjoy not only the benefits of a green and pleasant all grass site, but have the added benefit of our own pure water from our certificated water well and our farm shop selling in season produce such as our own free range eggs, home produced lamb, pork and beef when available.  

We have a washing machine and dryer, shower and flushing toilet on site and a good proportion of our electricity is produced by a solar generator located within the construction of our livestock barn.

Wildlife abounds with many birds and mammals.

Farm walks are available on request but dogs must be kept on leads at all times. The routes may change depending on which fields we have the sheep and cattle in. There is an attractive carp pond with a sun deck to relax on in the old water meadow.

The market town of Honiton, well known for its lace is approximately 4 miles away. Our nearest small town, Ottery  St Mary, is historically connected to the poet Samuel Coleridge Taylor. The beautiful church St Mary’s is well worth a visit along with the Tumbling WeirOtter Nurseries is one of the largest garden centers in Devon and is less than one mile away and a Sainsbury’s  supermarket is located in Ottery St Mary.

We have a holiday let on site that is available for let year round and also a static caravan. Please check out our Website. We look forward to welcoming you to our site.

Great Views

A quiet super site with a great views from all caravans/motorhomes looking south. With easy firm access, if you are looking for peace and quiet, this site is ideal. Only 8 miles from Sidmouth and the coast, this is an ideal site to explore the East Devon area. Easy access from the M5, A30 and A35. On-site, there are laundry facilities, very welcome as we were on an extended holiday, and a good supply of fresh eggs on site. But beware, the supplying hens do like to have a look in all caravans!!!!! A delightful stay.

Beautiful views

We spent 2 nights here on our way home from Cornwall. The site feels very spacious and the pitches situated so everyone gets an unhindered view of the beautiful countryside. We walked across fields to Ottery St Mary. Lovely to see the bullocks, sheep and chickens from the motor home. Couldn't find a local pub within walking distance except for across the fields to Ottery.

Lovely Views

Visited this site for 2 weeks at the end of April early May. Slightly sloping  very well maintained field with fantastic views, handy for Sidmouth, Honiton, Budleigh Salterton and several National Trust properties, A La Ronde, Killerton and Knighthayes Court. Free range chickens roam the site and there are sheep and lambs in adjacent fields. Excellent TV reception. However the single toilet is in need of some TLC, and is shared by the 4 seasonal pitches in the adjoining field.

Enjoyable stay.

This nice site has very large grass pitches with lovely views over the countryside. 1 toilet, metered shower (£1/£2) and washing machine. Free range eggs from the chickens that roam around. Good base for walking and cycling direct the site and Exmouth, Sidmouth, Exeter a short drive away plus National Trust properties and Cadhay House is well worth a visit if open. Ottery St Mary is a surprisingly busy little town and well worth a walk round. We'd certainly come back, thank you.
