About: Our ethos revolves around being eco-conscious. This means we prioritise eco-friendly practices throughout our campsite, while also offering you the chance to fully embrace the benefits of eco-therapy in nature.

Our site features compost toilets, off-grid hot showers and provides eco-friendly cleaning and showering products. We also have clearly marked recycling areas to ensure responsible waste management.

Camping within our beautiful woodland is the perfect place to restore your senses whilst being kind to nature. Pitch up, sit back, relax and enjoy the surroundings or get stuck in with all the eco therapy activities we have to offer here.

Our woodland offers a delightful blend of sunny, open spaces and shaded areas, providing the perfect escape from the sun on hot days. We have 10 camping pitches available, each offering a desirable level of privacy and accommodating tents up to 6m in size. Enjoy our designated communal fire pits, BBQs, and picnic areas, along with washing up facilities. Take a moment to relax and take in the surroundings in the undercover pergola, where you can dine, read, or simply absorb the natural beauty.

The campsite offers the best of both worlds, situated in the peaceful rural countryside while being just a short 5-minute drive from the vibrant city of Exeter. In the city, you'll discover iconic landmarks like Exeter Cathedral and the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, as well as beautiful parks, numerous eateries, the fascinating catacombs, and the historic quayside. Enjoy leisurely river walks, kayaking, climbing, and much more.

If you're seeking natural beauty, within a 20-minute journey, you can explore the breathtaking moors or visit any of our stunning beaches. There are also nearby swimming pools and leisure facilities to choose from, and Fingle Glen Golf Club is less than a 10-minute drive away for golf enthusiasts. National Trust members will find a wealth of properties to explore, all within easy reach from our location.

Additionally, just five minutes up the road, in the village of Whietstone, you will find a picture perfect, children’s park, with amazing rural views, picnic area and outdoor gym.

Worth Noting:

  • Sorry but due to the delicate ecology of the woodlands, we do not permit dogs.
  • The site is currently not wheelchair accessible. For babies and toddlers we advise an all terrain pushchair/pram.
  • Parking is approx 100m from the campsite. Wheelbarrows or festival trolleys are provided for transporting your gear.
