Exe Valley Caravan Site
The Exe Valley Caravan Site, for adults only, occupies an enchanting, peaceful setting in a wooded valley within the Exmoor National Park. 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 grist mill, it was used for milling flour during the Second World War. The building is in good repair and most 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 have been seen on 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. Our village Inn opposite serves lunchtime and evening meals. The Exmoor National Park enjoys a wide variety of good pubs and eating places. 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 14 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.
