This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

1 acre, level. Advanced booking advisable.
A376 from Exeter. 1m into Exmouth, turn left signpost Ottery St Mary, site is on left after 1.5m opposite Dinan Way.
The Old Slaughterhouse
has the following facilities on or around the site.
This site is shown in The Big Sites Book 2013-2014 as Exe Camping and Caravanning and the directions indicate it to be opposite Dinan Way. If you see Dinan Way you will have passed the entrance which shares the junction of Hulham Road and Summer Lane. Look out for the brown sign for N.T. A la Ronde. The entrance is quite narrow and steep initially, relative to the road camber, and longer units may bottom out, ours did (its 7.47m). The junction is quite busy and you will need to use the wrong side of the road to access and egress. There is 1 hard standing and a number of grass pitches all with electric hook ups each with a water supply. A fairly new Chem.Toilet Disposal Point is near the entrance. Although the views from this elevated site are good it adjoins quite a busy road and noise is an issue. About 8 high level sodium type lights bathe the entire site in orange light and, unless you have good blinds, this could lead a sleepless night, I would not like to be in a tent on this site. The grass was long and you need to walk across it to get to the Chem. Disposal Point. We did not meet the owner so we were unable to comment on the Friendliness/Welcome rating
