Treacle Valley Campsite

Treacle Valley, (formally Manor Farm), is an easy-going, traditional, family run campsite in the tiny village of Daccombe close to Torquay.

Our family have had the pleasure of carrying on the 40-year tradition of a campsite here in the valley since 2006 when the working farm and surrounding woodland came up for sale.

The hidden and picturesque valley village of Daccombe (a secret to even some Torquinians) won our family’s hearts over generations. Grandchildren were told legends of the valley, and we had all either worked here on the land, wandered through its woods and lanes, or stayed here as 4th generation Scouts or simply as visitors to the Torquay area.

Now it is our turn to champion its many wonders. A beautiful steep-sided valley with 500-year-old oak trees and uninterrupted views of Dartmoor’s National Park. The perfect location to explore literally dozens of beaches over the other side of the hill and the great number of things to do & places to go, beaches, boat trips, nightlife, and entertainment that Torbay has always been proud to offer.

Treacle Valley Campsite is ideally located to Torquay, Paignton & Brixham with plenty to do for all ages.

Treacle Valley is nested in a beautiful unspoiled west-facing valley, just on the outskirts of Torquay, in Torbay.

If you choose to spend your camping holiday with us at Treacle Valley campsite, you and your family will be able to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of natural woodlands, and panoramic views which to the west, stretch for miles over unspoiled Devonshire countryside right up to Dartmoor National Park.

Liked: lovely quiet, laid back site, in a rural, farmed valley spacious gently sloping field with pitch where you feel happy ethos. Clean large facility block with plenty of hot showers and hot water at the taps. Ideal for families (room to run and play area) hikers, cyclists etc. The perfect location for exploring South Devon, close to beaches and stunning coastline, English Riviera towns, steam railway and boat trips. Helpful Owners family farm so local knowledge, swimmer, walker, own guide to beaches. Good phone, data connectivity for those unable to suspend their disbelief that independent self reliance is possible. Just a nice place to unwind. Disliked: It rained and my tent leaked, hardly their fault, but did help resolve problem, thanks again.

A really nice campsite, really friendly owners. Booked due to several factors, nice working farm campsite and not a holiday park, they allow fires and let you borrow fire pits and buy sacks of wood. Will definitely be returning when we visit Devon again 👌

Liked: For a basic site it very good Great views in lovely countryside and peaceful Plenty of space The manager was friendly Disliked: It is basic - there free showers, but not much room in cubicle so clothes, towels etc will get wet. Nothing else to add

Liked: Reasonably quiet. Has friendly staff, free showers and anytime check-in and check-out Disliked: Toilet facilities were very basic. Showers, although unlimited, has nowhere to keep your dry clothes etc away from the shower water apart from two door hooks, leading to spray etc hitting bags/clothes/towels/shoes. The lights in the toilet block seem to be on all night long whereas perhaps a motion-sensor controlled light would be better. This, we believe, may lead to flying insects coming in through the permanently open door and making cleaning more of an issue than it could be. Perhaps a revamp of the toilet block could be considered to reduce the number of toilet cubicles and to enable enlargement of the shower cubicles?

Great location.. Quiet and dog and child friendly. Not far from local amenities and far enough to avoid the noise. Good charging area for mobile phones etc with padlocked cupboards and multi Adaptors. Friendly staff and willing to help but without being intrusive. I have to disagree with some of the comments about the toilet and shower facilities being good or excellent. Personally I have experienced much better, more modern facilities elsewhere at the same cost and shower cubicles need to be larger and hanging/seating areas in the shower cubicles being included somehow. Overall a decent site and accessible to the local area.

Liked: Views were lovey. Prices were reasonable. Disliked: It was very crowded on the site which I appreciate was down to the time of year but tents kept popping up everywhere and even on the bits where you would expect to drive in/out. Again I appreciate this was campers as opposed to the owners, but it didn't feel like there was much monitoring going on. The roads in to the site (this is not a fault of the site) were very very tight. A couple of times we met vehicles and there was no where to go.
