The Exe Valley Caravan Site, for adults
occupies an enchanting, peaceful setting in a wooded valley within the Exmoor
Set alongside the
sparkling River Exe, the campsite has beautiful views, an abundance of wildlife and many
footpaths leading to the moors, woodlands and rivers. It is a wonderful location for
camping and country loving folk.
The owners live on site in Bridgetown Mill, which dates
back to the 17th Century. Once a grain and flour producing
mill, it was last used for milling during the Second World
War. The building is in good repair and much of the mill
machinery is in working order. The mill is
listed as being the largest on Exmoor, and is usually open for campers to go inside on Sunday mornings.
There is plenty
of interest nearby, including Red Deer and Exmoor ponies roaming
over heather-clad moors, crystal
clear rivers or streams full of wild trout and over 50 varieties of birds can be
seen from the campsite.
You will find unspoilt villages,
National Trust properties and beautiful gardens. The scenic North Devon coast
and Lorna Doone Valley are also within easy reach.
excellent local inn opposite serves lunchtime and evening meals and there is a
village shop and post office at nearby Winsford.
The carefully maintained
campsite covers 4 acres of level grass between the River Exe and our own mill stream. 47 pitches have electric and TV hook-ups, and there are 16 hard standings.
Every pitch has ample space and enjoys its own section of the bank beside
the fast flowing clear water of the river or the mill stream. A further
acre of our land provides for a leisurely stroll up to our weir, and an area where dogs may run free and splash in the river.
