Camping in Devon can be a fun and exciting experience for the whole family. Toasting marshmallows by the fire, enjoying long walks in the wondrous Devonshire woodlands, breathing in the fresh countryside air. Can you really think of anything better than being at one with nature?
Camping in Cullompton
Cullompton is a charming little town in Devon. Home to the Romans and Saxons, the little town of Cullompton has plenty of history to keep the whole family engaged. During civil wars, Cullompton was visited several times by troops passing through. And latterly, Cullompton was a town well-known for its cloth and wool manufacturing. You can still this day, visit the Cold Harbour Mill, now a museum, where the past really is brought to life as visitors can see craftsmen and women making traditional textiles, as well as knit beautiful yarn and hand woven rugs.
Just off the M5 at junction 31 or 32, Cullompton is perfectly located for those travelling down the country towards Plymouth, or up the country towards Bristol. It therefore makes perfect sense to enjoy a pit stop along the way of a long journey, or indeed just simply enjoy a holiday taking in the stunning surrounds that Cullompton has to offer.
The campsite adjacent to the Diggerland Devon Theme Park, is perfectly situated upon acres of fields and woodlands. The River Culm flows nearby and within walking distance you will shortly arrive at the river and be able to revel in its natural beauty.
When looking for locations that offer camping in Devon, Cullompton should really be top of your list.
