Pitch (3 at Billingsmoor Farm)
The Owner Says
Billingsmoor Farm is in Mid Devon, also known as Devon's Heartland. Surrounded by beautiful countryside each of our 5 elevated pitches offers panoramic views, overlooking the fields and our forest that offers natural and safe play for children. With no light pollution the stars will shine brightly for you.
Our site is less than 20 miles from the soft sands of Exmouth's famous family beach and 20 miles from Dartmoor and Exmoor's National Parks.
We are surrounded by National Trust Properties, two of which are within 10 miles away from us. The camping field is set on our 400-acre family dairy farm that is farmed under the Organic Stewardship Scheme which ensures it is managed with the environment in mind. People are free to roam our beautiful fields and although we do not allow access to the animals we do try to allow time for people to get to see the milking and if any are available to feed the calves.
We only allow a max of 3 tents, and each of our pitches has a 9m x 5m deep wooded area to pitch the tents. Each pitch has got a private toilet and sink, cold running water, fire pit and picnic bench. There is no electric hook-up, but electricity is available in both the shower block and kitchen area. The shower block is modern and centrally heated, we also have laundry facilities and undercover washing up facilities.
We have got a little on site pantry that is operated on an honesty basis that offers some basic goods as well as some local fare. We can also provide you with arrival meals, please ensure you pre-book these far in advance before arrival.
As well as a varied programme of events – from walking parties to celebrations – an added attraction is the forestry school where you can master key bushcraft skills before cooking lunch and spotting flora and fauna. Whatever your age, a stay at Billingsmoor offers a real education.
There's no butter place to while away an afternoon than at the Butterleigh Inn a 400 year old longhouse with log fires and a peaceful garden. The bakehouse in Collumpton serves delicious cakes and fresh coffee and is a great spot to stop and watch the world pass by!
About Billingsmoor Farm
Tents, families, couples, dogs (on a lead at all times) – yes. Campervans, caravans, motorhomes and walk-in bookings – no. Single-sex parties and large groups by pre-arrangement only (must book the entire site).
The nearby town of Tiverton boasts plenty of attractions, not least the Tiverton Museum (01884 256295) and Great Western Canal where you can take a traditional horse-drawn barge courtesy of the Tiverton Barge Co. (01884 253345). For little ones, the Devon Railway Centre (01884 855671) promises hours of train-based fun, while The Bear Trail (01392 881780) is a muddy all-ages obstacle course that all the family will love. For walkers the Devonshire Heartland Way can be picked up easily from the site, and there are two stately National Trust properties nearby in Knightshayes and Killerton. Keep things simple with a spot of wild swimming, or go to Coryton Cove, a secluded beach close to Dawlish, where dolphins have been spotted. Exmoor and Dartmoor are both within a 40-minute drive, and there's a weekly cattle market at Newton Abbot. There are photo opportunities aplenty at Clovelly, a pretty fishing village where Charles Kingsley was inspired to write the Water Babies.
