About Brookshill Farm
Glamping, camping, tents, kids, dogs, groups (hiring the whole site) – yes. Campervans and caravans – no.
Brookshill Farm is just a five-minute drive (or a pleasant riverside walk) from the charming village of Culmstock. Lots of the parish falls under areas of the Blackdown Hills, so expect plenty of stunning walking trails further east but, right from the site, there's a nice footpath beside the River Culm that leads in to the village then head north through the high street (and past the pub) and up to Culmstock Beacon for some of the best views in the area. In summer, in particular, the land around the hill is full of bell-heather. It's around 50 minutes each way to the beacon and back. You could also detour to the butterfly sanctuary located on two small meadows, Little breach reserve. The city of Exeter is 30 minutes’ drive away – visit the art galleries and museum’s, spend the day lazing by the quayside or book in for a guided tour to make sure no nook is left unseen. It's 45 minutes to Seaton, Sidmouth and the south coast.
