The Exe Valley Caravan Site is an award winning park, in a peaceful part of Somerset. This adults only park is set alongside the sparkling River Exe, in a wooded valley within Exmoor National Park. 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.
We live on site in Bridgetown Mill, which dates back to the 17th Century. Once a grain and flour producing mill, it was last used for milling during the Second World War. The building is in good repair and much 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 can be seen from 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.
An excellent local inn opposite serves lunchtime and evening meals and there is a village shop and post office at nearby Winsford.
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 16 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.
There is a pleasant walk within our site, going past the Fir Tree Plantation, to sit and watch the water cascading over the Weir and down the Salmon Leap. Yes, the Salmon and Trout can be seen leaping in late summer and autumn. Birds are in abundance with Kingfishers, Dippers, Herons and Pheasants making regular appearances. The beautiful planting of decorative trees, shrubs and confers blend in with the natural wild flowers and deciduous self sown trees along the river banks. Campers have observed from their caravans the Red Deer drinking from the Exe early in the mornings.
Surrounding the campsite, which is within the National Park, you have the beauty of Exmoor. Several walks start from the campsite, take the guided Safari Trip on the moors, or watch a game of cricket at the beautiful Bridgetown Cricket Ground.
For just relaxation you can cast your fishing line from your pitch and look out for all the wildlife around.
