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, including; beaches, boat trips, water sports, 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: Very spacious bell tent, perfect for three of us for a weekend. Lovely views and the toilet facilities were really good, hot showers, good washing area and all kept clean. Disliked: It would’ve been nice for the shop to be open later in the afternoon as well as just the morning.

Liked: Very nice camp site. Toilets and showers very clean, pitches are a good size. You can use the fire pit for free and wood is also sold there at a good price. Disliked: There were cows next to my pitches and the smell was horrible. Hard to find a level pitches.
