Farleigh Camping

Farleigh Camping field with a swallow flying Farleigh Camping

Farleigh Camping is a friendly, relaxed and rustic campsite situated in South Devon.

Surround yourself with nature in our peaceful fields. We have beautiful far reaching views of Dartmoor with swallows and skylarks gliding and singing serenely overhead. Add to this stunning sunsets over Dartmoor and clear, starry skies at night. We have peace and tranquility yet without being too far away from, amongst other places, the quirky, bustling, bohemian town of Totnes and the serenity of Dartmouth. Our local pub, serving great food, is only a short walk from the campsite.

Local Attractions


We are very close to many well known beautiful beaches such as Bantham, Bigbury, Slapton and Blackpool Sands. We can also share our local knowledge with you of some secret gems off the beaten track.

Bantham Beach


For hiking, biking and wild swimming, the open spaces of Dartmoor National Park are less than half an hour away and less than two miles away is the River Avon... a wild swimming dream!

The River Dart and Salcombe estuaries are great for river trips, paddle boarding and kayaking/canoeing.

Jenkins Quay

Nearby towns

Totnes, Kingsbridge (recently named as the best town to live in in the UK) and Dartmouth are all within only seven miles. Totnes is host to many thriving cafes, pubs and independent shops, and also hosts an amazing open air market which takes place every Friday and Saturday.

Dartmouth has beautiful river views and a thriving town centre. Kingsbridge, sitting at the end of Salcombe estuary has great riverside pubs that offer fantastic paddle board facilities.


Local eateries

South Devon is full of amazing pubs and restaurants offering gastronomic delights, including The New Inn pub at Moreleigh less than a mile from the field! Don’t be shy to ask us questions of where to eat, drink and be merry.

New Inn Morleigh

We are more than happy to share our local knowledge of idyllic river pubs, characterful beer gardens, vineyards and cosy country hideaways.


A small but useful campsite shop offering (subject to availability)... firewood, eggs and other camping essentials.

The shop also houses many tourist leaflets and a map to assist you in really making the most out of your holiday to the beautiful heaven of Devon.


We offer a relaxed vibe and have a communal fire pit for campers to sit by to natter and relax under the beautiful night skies that we are so lucky to have here.

We also welcome you to bring your own, off the ground braziers/BBQs (we will provide bricks to protect the land). We accept well behaved dogs, all we kindly ask is that you keep them on leads at all times to protect our sheep and other livestock.
