A campfire-friendly site in South Devon, with a beach, a nature reserve and a pub all less than 45 minutes' walk away

At first glance, the gently undulating field at Pittaford Farm Camping might not seem like the perfect place to pitch a tent. But ponder for a moment and you'll quickly see why it is. First up, there’s the valley view and rolling hills that this particular lie of the land affords and then there’s the fact that not everywhere in the field is flat enough to pitch, keeping the big caravans away. The result is spacious, well-spaced pitches for tents and small campervans, along with plenty of room to run around in the middle. It’s perfect for the kind of peaceful camping that Pittaford seeks to promote.

Situated deep in the countryside of South Devon, Pittaford Farm Camping is a quiet, campfire-friendly campsite with immaculate facilities, just a couple of miles from the beach. You won’t find music blaring or noisy groups here; it’s rather more civilised than that – but it’s nowhere near stuffy either. There are no neat rows of pitches, no formal reception and no overbearing wardens; instead you’ll get a friendly hello from Sally or Paul who’ll emerge from the farmhouse when you roll up on site. Paul has lived here all his life and his father runs a livery yard, so expect to see horses in the surrounding fields.

It’s Paul who’s converted what was once a pigsty into the campsite facilities that are now anything but. There are three separate-entrance loos and two family-sized showers, which come complete with a hairdryer and shaver point. Like we said it’s all rather civilised. That theme continues with the other convenient campsite kitchen facilities; undercover sinks for washing up, fridges, freezers and charging points for phones. Each of the site’s ten pitches and the pre-pitched bell tents that are available to hire here comes with an ingenious off-ground fire pit that Paul has made to his own design.

You can walk from the farm to the pub in Slapton village, to the beach at Slapton Sands or to Slapton Ley Nature Reserve. If your legs are up to it, tackle them all on a five-mile round trip (perhaps ending at the pub). This is the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and if you want to explore it further there are electric bikes available to hire from a nearby farm shop and the South West Coast Path for spectacular coastal walks. Dartmouth is less than 10 miles away and Salcombe a little further.

Grass pitch for campervan
We loved our stay. Such a beautiful spot. Stunning walk from the campsite down to the beach. Sally and Paul were really helpful and the amenities were really clean. We would definitely recommend this campsite.

6m Bell Tent for 4
Beautiful peaceful campsite.
We have just returned following a wonderful 3 night stay at Pittaford farm. We stayed in the 6m Bell tent, which was equipped with everything we needed for a relaxing family break. Paul and Sally made us feel very welcome and have set up a lovely campsite. The facilities are clean and tidy, with lovely hot showers! The views are amazing, and it was lovely to be surrounded by horses, sheep and waking up to the sound of the birds! We cannot wait to return!

6m Bell Tent for 4
We ended up staying in the geodome.. it was great, loads of space and in its own beautiful spot surrounded by wildflowers. We didn’t have the best weather but were warm and dry in the dome. The kids loved the horses and the safe meadow to play football, and the views from the site are amazing. It’s so peaceful too. Facilities are great, everything you need on site and the showers are lovely and hot. The walk down to Slapton sands is beautiful, the track goes straight from the farm to the nature reserve, but it is a long hilly walk that takes about an hour each way, so wouldn’t recommend it with young children. Sally and Paul were lovely helpful hosts and we’d definitely stay again.

From the host
Just two miles from the coast, tucked outside the village of Slapton, this lovely small campsite offers peace, quiet and countryside views. With just a few pitches, including a furnished bell tent, campfires on each pitch and five-star modern facilities, this a great camping experience. Perfect for relaxing after a long day at the beach or walking the coast path.
Nearby attractions

The area is great for walkers, with a bridleway leading from the farm towards Slapton Sands (two miles away) and Slapton Ley Nature Reserve (three miles). Alternatively, you could walk part of the South West Coast Path with its spectacular coastal views. There's also electric bike bike hire from Stokeley Farm Shop (01548 581605), a five-mile drive from site, and Dittiscombe Equestrian Centre (01548 581049) is just up the road. Dartmouth is nine miles from site and a good place for a day out whether you want to browse the shops or hire kayaks and paddleboards to explore the estuary.
