Catered Camping Service

In our spare capacity we offer a camping experience with a difference for those seeking affordable holiday accommodation near Salcombe. After your journey down to this delightful part of the South Hams peninsular, why worry about pitching your tent or even cooking the evening meal? Let us do all that for you! Arrive to a pre-pitched bell tent with outdoor furniture, lanterns, and comfy mattresses. Bring your own bedding. Half board is included, with breakfast in the Walkers' Hut and an evening meal cooked on open fire.  We start breakfast with a healthy and super tasty variety of cereals, yoghurt, fruit, variety of bread and spreads.  All our produce are sourced locally with all our beef coming direct from Holsome Park who also farm on East Soar. Most vegetables and salad are home grown in our veggie patch with our evening bread collected fresh from our local bakery every day.  End the evening around the camp fire made in one of our fire pit areas, roasting marshmallows or just enjoying the glorious sunset. Safe environment for children with a small rustic playground, adventure trail, pet sheep, pigs, chickens, donkeys, pony, cats and most loved Daisy dog. Help Schalk to feed the animals every morning and enjoy the ample space, fresh air and many walks on East Soar.  We particularly welcome families with children that have additional needs. Although we are unable to offer a respite service we do provide an understanding and safe environment for children who have additional needs. If your child has a SEN statement or recognised equivalent we are now able to offer a 50% discounted rate per child.  Please refer to our GIVING BACK section for more details.
