About Us

Widdicombe farm is a family run, fully licensed adult only Touring Park. Set in 8 acres of our lovely 615 acre farmland, in an area of outstanding natural beauty. It is actually the only Touring Park within the boundary of Torquay.

There are no winding narrow country lanes to negotiate so no tiresome reversing if ou should meet other traffic on the way to our park.

Because our site is family owned and run we live within our park, we are able to offer you a friendly and personal service, plus of course supervision by day and peaceful nights. Consequently we do have many repeat bookings from people who have visited us previously (they say it's like home from home). Therefore we strongly advise booking in advance.

The Hayloft Bar is very popular offering a good selection of beers, wines and ciders, etc. Over the Easter and then Spring Bank Holiday to the end of September there is also live entertainment several nights a week. We feel sure you will enjoy these memorable evenings meeting up with old friends and making new ones.

We offer quality home cooked meals in Poppies Licensed Restaurant from Easter to the end of September so you can choose to relax and let someone else cook you your evening meal or Sunday lunch. The restaurant has a lovely cosy, friendly atmosphere and provides meals or takeaways for great value prices.

Our enthusiastic office team are here waiting with pens poised in anticipation of your telephone call. They will take your booking for that personal one to one contact we know you will appreciate.

We do hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you to Widdicombe Farm, where you will find genuine Devon hospitality.
