Welcome to Doone Valley Campsite or to those that have
been before, 'Carols Campsite'. The campsite is in the heart of Exmoor National
Park and at the head of the Doone Valley made famous by Richard Doddridge
Blackmore who wrote the novel 'Lorna Doone'
This is a family campsite with toilets, hot showers and
pot wash. The camp site is comprised of level fields beside a shallow
stream set in a valley surrounded by hills and trees, and easy access through
the car park at Malmsmead. Horse grazing is available for campers on horseback. Well behaved
dogs on leads are welcome and campfires are allowed with logs for sale.
Not far from the camp site is the Buttery, Riverside licensed Bar and Café.
This is an ideal way to get away from it all and
experience the natural beauty of Exmoor around you. There are many walks around including
the famous Doone Valley walk and if you are very lucky and
quiet you may just get to see some deer.
If you prefer, horse riding is available from one
of the trekking stables in the area. Fishing is also available.
There is always somewhere to go and something to see on
your stay, or if you prefer you can just soak up the atmosphere of Exmoor
and forget about the stresses of modern day living.
we also have two separate camp fields especially for groups, hire the whole
field and have a group camp, ideal for clubs or a party.
The Onsite Facilities include - 10 Tourers/Motorhomes, 40
Tents, Toilets, Showers, Chemical Disposal .
Local Pubs nearby.
