Jewel in the crown

High House Farm
Just had a lovely week at this little gem. Bit challenging to get to but if you ignore satnav and follow Ruth the owner’s excellent directions you can’t go far wrong. There are some great little walks straight from the site and the ferry across to Salcombe just over a mile down the lane to East Portlemouth. Leave some energy for the walk back though. Gara Rock beach is great for a swim with lovely golden sand, it’s a bit of a descent and a climb back but well worth it. Handy little shop at East Prawle and Kingsbridge not far for main shopping. Some folk have complained about the access and narrow lanes but all in all we found other drivers to be patient and courteous pulling into the many passing places.

Perfect for us

High House Farm
Take the owners advice and do not use satnav. Mrs Frouds instructions are easy to follow and avoid taking you down narrow lanes. The site is well maintained and the sea view is breathtaking. Such a peaceful tranquil place. Easy access to the coastal path with many sandy bays to explore. The information leaflet provided is really helpful. Thank you for allowing us to share this wonderful place Mrs Froud we feel very privileged to have spent some time here.

Perfect Hide Away

High House Farm
What an excellent CL site. Stunning views over the entrance to Salcombe and 5 min walk from the SW coast path, Gara Rock and some beautifully secluded beaches. 10 min away in the village of East Charleton is a petrol station / spar, with a good offering of supplies and next door is Ashbys which sells everything. Spare camping, caravan parts & equipment, water sports, fishing, shooting. You could spend a fortune in there, it has it all. A little further east is a farm shop with very good and reasonably priced fresh local produce. The site is long and thin meaning you go broard side to the view so perfect for enjoying the morning and evening views. If you have a mains water kit and long enough hose there is no reason not to be fully serviced on you pitch. We had a warm welcome on the evening of arrival by the owner who shared her knowledge of the area and the best places to go and enjoy. Despite some comments below, if you follow the directions given by Ruth you will have no issues with the narrow roads. There are plenty of passing spaces and with our large caravan we had no issues. WARNING Do Not Follow Your Sat Nav when towing or if your in a large motor home. It will take you down some very narrow lanes that most people would not want to go down in a small car, let alone when towing. It’s quiet, peaceful with stunning views and certainly a place to relax at.

Superb location

High House Farm
Close to the South West Coast Path with it’s great views over the rugged wild coast this site with well spaced pitches is worth the effort. Mrs Froud’s directions were helpful and she was very responsive when I asked for clarification on one or two things. The site is simple but well maintained and information sheets on site very helpful regarding the local area. The Salcombe ferry and East Prawle are easily walked or cycled to if you are an active person and the lanes around are really not busy. If you want complete peace and quiet and don’t mind travelling down a few narrow lanes to get there then this site will not disappoint.

Stunning place

High House Farm
For the last 9 years we have stayed 5 maybe 6 times a year at the two CL sites in East Prawle, and this was our first visit to High House Farm. It is a stunning location, very peaceful and spoilt for choice with dog walks in all directions, and easy access to many beaches all around from Slapton Sands to Mill Bay, either on foot or by car. The Gara Rock Hotel is only a short walk away and East Prawle with an excellent country pub and village shop only 5 minutes away by car. Mrs. Froud has produced a handy information sheet which she hands to all her visitors and it is also freely available on the notice board by the gate. The site description clearly states do not follow sat nav and that is for good reason. They roads are fine if you keep to the main road, from Stokenham, in and out with your van, our unit is 8 meters long plus the car. There are plenty of passing places for a car and van on this road as it is frequently used all year round by large tractors and trailers and the school bus with no problem. Will certainly be visiting again.
