Small Campsite of the Year - Churchill Farm Campsite, Buckfastleigh, Devon
Set in the hills above Buckfast Abbey, between the villages of Buckfastleigh and Buckfast, this small, beautifully maintained campsite is part of a working farm owned by the Pedrick family. It’s a real hidden gem for those who love traditional camping; the two neatly mown paddocks, separated by post and wire fencing from pedigree Charollais and Dorper sheep, offer total peace and quiet. There are 25 spacious grass pitches (eight with electric hook-up) for caravans, motorhomes and tents, and stunning panoramic views towards Dartmoor from every pitch. Both Andrew and Ann Pedrick are just as passionate about running the campsite as they are about looking after their sheep, so visitors can expect a high level of customer care and spotlessly clean unisex toilet facilities. Housed in refurbished farm buildings across the drive from the paddock, these facilities may be simple but they’re freshly decorated each year, boast smartly tiled, free showers, and are always well maintained. Churchill Farm is a relaxing and peaceful base from which to explore the South Hams area and Dartmoor, and it’s close to a local bus service and within walking distance of Buckfastleigh, the Abbey and the South Devon Steam Railway.
Churchill Farm was a 'nominee in the 2013 member recommended Camping and Caravanning Site of the Year competition', for its friendly welcome.
Please note while staying on the site our local authority is trying to recycle as much waste as possible - we have different bins for; cardboard, plastic containers, glass, paper, food etc. We would ask you to assist with this as much as possible while staying with us.
