This is a Listed Site (LS) that is licensed by the Local Authority and not under the jurisdiction of The Camping and Caravanning Club.

The Club cannot approve or recommend Listed Sites, these are simply provided to give you more choice. It's worth checking when booking as some sites offer members a discount on pitch fees.
The Diggerland Campsite is set in the beautiful Devon countryside, in the village of Willand.
The campsite is easy to get to from either north or south, it is about 4 minutes from the M5, junctions 27 or 28, following signs for Willand.
On the same ground as our camp site is the fantastic Diggerland Theme Park, also on the same site is Diggerlakes, offering access to quality carp and pleasure fishing on a day or night ticket basis.
We are approximately 20 miles from the beach, either north or south, and there is plenty to be doing locally.
We welcome touring caravans, motorhomes and tents on our touring pitches, which are large, flat, sheltered and well drained.
Electricity is available on 12 of our pitches, and booking is advisable, although we do take payment on the day for campers who haven’t booked, subject to availability.
We use our paddock field for camping at busy weekends and in the summer holidays. This grassy field is level and sheltered, however there are no marked pitches, or electric hook-ups. We welcome rallies and groups, including guides and scouts on this field.

We booked for 3 nights in August 2014, as we had booked to go to the Diggerland park.
It was great for this, as the park is only 5/10 minutes walk from the site, and we were able to go in & out during the day to go back to the caravan.
We knew there were only basic facilities here, but that's fine, they were very clean and we had access to everything we needed. The children had loads of space to run around & play, which you often lack at larger sites, so that was great.
The lakes are also within walking distance, I imagine it would be perfect for people fishing & wanting to stay overnight.
The prices are very reasonable, especially if you pre-book online, which is what we did.
Over all we had a great time, and will definitely be back!
