Why stay here ...

Superb rural situation with outstanding views to Dartmoor, direct access to 30 miles of private tracks for walking or cycling. The site is alongside our professional horse training yard. The site is not ideally suited to children as it is quiet and relaxing without ball game facilities.

The historic town of Totnes is only 3 mile from the site and there is an award winning pub/restaurant 1 mile away.

Breathable groundsheets only, large plots with water on each plot.

Lovely location

Higher Lillisford
We were welcomed by Laraine & Lydia on arrival who showed us where everything was. Very conveniently each pitch has its own water tap, toilet disposal not too far down the field and grey waste into the hedge. There is a narrow track the other side of the hedge which was ideal for giving the dog a walk as it was used mainly by horse riders and occasional farm vehicles. Views of Dartmoor in the distance and young horses in the field over the fence and plenty of places to visit within easy reach, although this year it was exceptionally busy - Totnes lovely and handy for shopping. A couple of downsides - the road past the site is very busy to and from the Equestrian Centre - lots of fast cars, lorries delivering and horse boxes. There aren’t many passing places so a bit nerve wracking to and from the main road especially when towing. The other slight annoyance was the grass mowing which left cuttings everywhere and really messed up our car and van when wet.

Lovely views with great owners

Higher Lillisford
We’ve just had 4 incredible nights at this beautiful camp site with amazing owners. Nothing was too much trouble and they were so friendly and welcoming. The site had wonderful views and the weather was perfect. Wish there were more sites like this. Thankyou so much

A very pleasant rustic rural CL

Higher Lillisford
This CL has a very pleasant rustic charm about it and has very welcoming and friendly owners, Laraine and Paul. The CL area is enclosed by a fence and has five very generous sized pitches. When we were there Laraine and Paul's own touring caravan was being stored in one corner of the CL area but this wasn't a problem. Whilst there is a very slight slope towards the far end of the site it is nothing to be concerned about. Each pitch has its own water tap and EHU on the fencing separating each pitch. Grey water can be drained away to the edge of the pitch. There is a magnificent view over towards Dartmoor with what I believe to be Haytor Rocks on the horizon almost 10 miles distant. The CL owners have horses which are in the paddock in front of the CL. These are not a problem and, in fact, give some 'entertainment'. Overall the CL is very quiet and peaceful. If I had to find a fault it would not be with the CL but with the final quarter of a mile down what is essentially a single track lane with passing places. We did meet a vehicle coming towards us when we arrived but with a bit of careful driving got past each other without a problem. We always assess a CL by asking ourselves whether we would pay a return visit. The simple answer is a very emphatic YES, if it is not fully booked!

Not great

Higher Lillisford
We stayed in November 2015 and it was of course wet so most of the CL was not able to be used.  Very limited area of hardstanding by an outbuilding with other cars parked.  As we have a small motorhome we could use this but still had to cross soggy grass for the water and electricity point.  Worse still the grey water and toilet emptying was some distance down the boggy field.  We were advised to let the grey water go onto the ground as it was just too difficult to wheel the trolley with a loaded container through the gate and down the slope.  Directions were confusing at the crossroads but appear to have been changed now.  Luckily it was not too far down the narrow lane although there were not too many passing places and the road is quite busy.  The location is handy for many attractions and probably better when dry.  Nice views and the owners did come out when we arrived to point out the water etc.

Great CL

Higher Lillisford
Friendly helpful owners, amazing views from well laid out pitches. Wonderful. We stayed for four nights in September and will return when next in the area.  Our only problem was finding it due to the directions in the site book, namely half of them were missing. Once found it was a little gem.
