Our Diggerland Devon Campsite closes on Sunday 1st November 2020.
Come and stay at our Diggerland Campsite in Devon… the best place around from which to tour and enjoy fabulous, fun-filled family days out in Devon.
Set in the stunning grounds of Verbeer Manor. Surrounded by the beautiful, picturesque Devonshire countryside and within an easy 30 miles drive or cycle of two renowned English National Parks:
Exmoor and Dartmoor – there is no better place to pitch your tent or park your motor home, camper van or caravan than at Diggerland’s campsite in Devon.
All our touring pitches for caravans, camper vans, motor homes and tents are flat, level, and well-sheltered with excellent drainage. Electricity is available with some pitches, but you are advised to pre-book these online as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
Animal lovers can rejoice!
Being at the heart of a nearby working farm, we’re home to farm animals, including mootastic cattle. Rise to the sound of birds chirping and cattle mooing… the perfect way to begin the day! Relax and unwind on our campsite after a day out at Diggerland, and enjoy the beautiful sights and sounds of nature.
The campsite is just a few minutes drive from the M5, Junctions 27 and 28, and is adjacent to both the theme park and, for those avid anglers among you who love carp fishing, “Diggerlakes”.
During the peak summer season, we open our paddock field exclusively to campers. This grassy field is also level and sheltered with excellent drainage, and there are no marked pitches or electricity hook-ups. Large rallies, groups, clubs and other organisations, including scouts and guides, are welcome to use this field. Call: 01634 711711 or email: email@example.com for more details.
