The Otter Vale Wild Camping is located on a working dairy farm just outside of Monkton, a small village near Honiton within the Otter Valley in Devon. Our camping site covers 8 acres of mixed broadleaf woodland with 11 acres of Meadow, making it a wonderful retreat for those who want to enjoy the peace and serenity that is on offer.
The idea of wild camping is to be able to see, hear and be at one with Mother Nature at her best. The wood is a bluebell wood with many different residents such as badgers, foxes, deer, rabbits, squirrels, many different birds and bugs, all make this beautiful part of Devon their home. We do not have facilities; we offer hard parking for up to 6 cars, water for washing and a loo. We do not have football pitches, or playground equipment.
You can tailor your stay to what you want. There are no pitches, you choose where you place your tent, hang your hammock, build your shelter or put your sleeping bag on the floor. Please read the natural layout of the wood, if the flower got there first then you have to pitch somewhere else. There are many natural clearings throughout.
Cooking on an open fire has to be one of the best parts of wild camping. You can build your own camp fire or we have long burning fire baskets with cooking plates. We produce our own bacon, sausage, proper free range eggs and seasonal veg. With a short walk down through our fields you can experience the taste sensation of Otter Valley Ice cream. Kindling, logs are available and drinking water can be sourced from our own natural spring.
We also provide an excellent array of facilites: toilets, hot showers, washing up facilities and pitch parking.
Our campsite is within easy distance of the historic Jurassic coastline, Dartmoor and the beautiful city of Exeter. Nearby Honiton is a historic town well known for its Lace making, an abundance of antique shops and an wonderful selection of quaint tea rooms. We have some wonderful local public houses, which offer a variety of locally sourced food and beverages. Golf is also available nearby.
