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!

Lovely setting, quiet, private and beatiful

Our first time camping just as a family and it was lovely. Jayne could not have been more welcoming, the stew on arrival was delicious. It's a working farm so it was lovely to feel in the middle of a different kind of activity. The elevated pitch meant great views and was still flat for easy pitching. Facilities for washing, a hot shower block, your own picnic table, fire pit and toilet gave it a camping experience without feeling it being "too rough". Lovely for a base if you just want to enjoy the country and a quiet, private, well equipped campsite. Cannot reccommend more highly, we'll be coming back for sure!

Lovely, peaceful, luxury!

Lovely setting, lovely people. A little bit of camping luxury set on a friendly, safe and secluded farm in the heart of the countryside. We had a great time and the kids thoroughly enjoyed exploring and chatting to the pig!

Great camping !

Billingsmoor farm has everything for an excellent camping experience. The positioning of the pitches are great providing the peace and privacy we are looking for in camping. The availability of a shed with individual toilet is extremely useful also by providing a dry space when it rains. The facilities area with the showers, kitchen and the honesty shop is super convenient and never busy because only a few number of guests is accepted to the camp site. This is a working farm and having animals around is amazing for the children. Our daughters are already missing the piggy, the sheep, the chickens, the dogs and of course the calves. They also loved the the hot croissants in the breakfast which were made available by Jayne who is also super friendly and helpful. This was our third time and we are already looking forward to come back again next year. Also to add that the location of the farm is great to explore new places in Devon each time. This time it was the Killerton House & Gardens and the Tree Surfers for us.

Great stay at Billingsmoor Farm!

My partner and I had a great week long stay at Billingsmoor farm at the end of June. When we arrived it turned out that the following day the owners were going on holiday for a few days and we were the only pitch booked during that period. This meant that we had pretty much the entire farm to ourselves during that period which was amazing. It felt as though we really were wild camping. Having a private toilet at the pitch was a great feature, and as the weather wasn’t great during our stay it meant we had a guaranteed dry area if needed. There is an honesty shop on site that has everything you might need and chilled too. I would definitely recommend an order of the breakfast baguette too. Camping on a working farm was an experience, and one of the animals included probably the worlds friendliest pig and “alarm clock” cows. This may have been due to Covid, but it felt as though there wasn’t too much to do within a short distance of the farm, and everywhere was at least a 20 minute drive away. That being said, you’re perfectly positioned for both the south and north coasts, and to nip into Exeter for the day if you’d like. We’ll definitely look to return when we head west again!

Amazing campsite!

Billingsmoor Farm is one of the best campsites I have ever stayed at! Very small site with only five individual pitches, each equipped with its own loo and sink, and hot showers down in the farm buildings. Loads of space for the kids to explore, including a lovely woodland and stream. Jayne is incredibly friendly and helpful and clearly enjoys running the site, the honesty shop and cooking meals and breakfasts for campers. Beautiful views from the pitches across rolling green hills and fantastic footpaths straight from the site to the River Exe and local villages and pubs. I have already recommended Billingsmoor to friends and family, and it is a campsite I would return to. Thank you Jayne.
