About West Town Farm
Suitable ForTents, kids, groups, dogs (on leads) – yes. Campervans, motorhomes, caravans – no.
It takes less than 15 minutes to drive into the heart of Exeter, with its famous gothic cathedral to visit, followed by a walk along the smartly regenerated quayside area or perhaps a guided tour around the town. In fact, if walkings your thing, you can easily skip any parking trouble by walking straight from the campsite in to town – it's around an hour from your tent to the cathedral. If you aren’t already full from the campsite's farm shop, use the extra space to take full advantage of the Street Food Night Markets – you won’t be disappointed. The Inside Outside summer craft fair is also a firm favourite for kids and teens. For those looking for a sunny day at the beach, there's a wide choice of tourist favourites, all around half an hour away, including sandy Dawlish and Exmouth and the pebbles of Budleigh Salterton.
Food & Drink
It's a 15-minute walk to the nearest pub in the village of Ide, The Poachers Inn (01392273847), while, at the further end of the high street, there's also The Huntsman (01392272779), a relaxed local haunt with a large beer garden serving reginal ales and traditional food. The Poachers also has a great garden, looking out onto the surrounding hills. They have an extensive wine list with over 20 varieties available as well as a large gin and tonic menu. Alternatively, you can find your way into the city centre or Exeter quayside (15 minutes’ drive or an hours walk) for a whole host of pubs, cafes and restaurants. On The Waterfront is a particular favourite, their heated terrace area sits right on the quayside making the perfect summer dining spot.

West Town Farm is located at West Town Farm, Ide, Exeter, Devon EX2 9TG
The village of Ide is three miles west from Exeter city centre, just off of the A30. From Ide high street, go uphill (south) to the mini roundabout and turn right. Follow the green signs half a mile and you will find the West Town Farm farmyard on your left. The campsite is just around the corner on your right.
If you're travelling by train, it’s best to get off at Exeter St Davids and catch a taxi from the rank outside. If you're hoping to book in advance, you can book with Apple taxis and their fleet of eco-taxis. Alternatively, the village of Ide is also accessible by the 360 bus, which stops outside the Huntsman Inn at the bottom of the High Street. From here, the site is only a 15-minute walk away.
