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!

Perfect family camping

Billingsmoor is an extraordinary find. A working farm (we met calves only hours old) with incredibly welcoming hosts, the site is ideal for families. Our kids spent hours playing in the woods, building dens and making friends. The views from the pitches are glorious and having your own loo and sink at the pitch was great. Really excellent facilities which kept in top condition. Really would recommend this peaceful, beautiful and friendly site most highly.

A lovely weekend!

Robert and Jayne were such welcoming hosts and the camping pitch was perfect - amazing views! The whole site was quiet and friendly and the honesty shop had everything we needed. We hope to visit again and enjoy the tranquility. Thank you both!

Fabulous!!!

Lovely large pitch with our own flushing toilet and running water made for a great start to our camping adventure. The honesty shop and other facilities are up there with the best we’ve seen. As regular campers we accept you never really know what you get until you arrive but we would highly recommend Billingsmoor Farm they welcome you on to their farm and deliver everything they promised and more Never before have we been able to order homemade treats or breakfast baguettes. Our teenagers laughed at our posh camping experience and loved the lemon drizzle cake as an afternoon treat. The baker in the family also produced the best scones for our camp site cream tea. Her scones were the best of the week and we had three cream teas!!!! The pitches are sheltered from each other with hedgerows and trees but are next to each other so you have to respectful of your neighbours. It’s location made it easy for us to have day trips out and even the rain didn’t stop play!!!

A beautiful spot, ideally located for exploring Devon

We loved our few days camping at Billingsmoor Farm - the views from the elevated pitches are stunning. It was also great to have our own private toilet on the pitch, whilst all the other facilities were excellent and very clean. The Honesty Shop was well stocked with all the essentials and the breakfasts provided by Jayne were delicious. The farm feels a million miles from the M5, tucked away down the lanes, but it's perfect for exploring the wider area. Thank you Robert & Jayne, we hope to see you again one day.

Wonderful Camping Experience Never Mind Rain and Moaning Cows

Billingsmoor Farm is so unique, set in the heart of Devon with sea and hills and touristy sites all within reach. On arrival – follow directions they provide, not your sat nav! – after driving up and down miles of narrow lanes you will be greeted by Jayne or Robert and shown to your assigned pitch (1 of 5) ample for a large tent or several small or medium size tents. I knew about the loo shed but was surprised to find it was a proper flusher not a compost or chemical one. Water, picnic table and firebowl all on this elevated east facing site of many views. Very pleased with all of this and wheel barrows to shift your kit, (no cars at the pitches). Also had use of hot shower block, Kitchen washing up area and freezer and fridge, electric points available. And a small “honesty” shop with most thing needed and some local cider, ale and Scrumpy! We also took advantage of the 25 GBP BBQ meat offer with nice local organic meats which for my wife and I was plenty, had some left to take home. We had a great 3 nights stay never mind the rain and would be happy to go again and recommend it to others especially those new to camping or with concerns during the CoVid 19 epidemic.
