Discover the gateway to the famous Jurassic Coast

Follow a clifftop walk with breathtaking views of the Jurassic coast with a night under the stars at Prattshayes caravan and campsite.

Exmouth countryside includes the impressive headland walk at Orcombe Point, the warm and friendly campsite and bunkhouse at Prattshayes and our tenanted farm at Lower Halsdon on the River Exe. An easy, level path above the beach at Exmouth is a peaceful haven from the holidaying crowds.

Look out for events happening at Lower Halsdon Farm, including hedge-laying, ranger walks and farm open days.

Fun on the farm

Friday 7 August at 1pm

Gather snails for the 'Great molluscs race', make a grass trumpet, roll down hill, run barefoot and more. Join our rangers and tick off some of the 50 things to do before you are 11¾.

Lower Halsdon Farm

Lower Halsdon collecting in the straw

Situated on the pretty River Exe and right next to the Exe Trail (cyclepath and walkway), Lower Halsdon has an enviable position on the outskirts of Exmouth.

A la Ronde, another Trust property, is nearby and we are keen to look at new ways to provide some access to this area.

New partnership

Campers enjoying their stay at Prattshayes

We are delighted to be working with Liquid Motion Watersports, the new tenants at Prattshayes.

They are currently taking bookings for the bunkhouse and campsite. Please call 01395 276626 to book or visit their website for more information.

Celebrating Coast

This is a year of celebration - we are taking part in South West Coastal Festival to mark a 50 year milestone in the conservation of the coast.

Over 300 miles of the South West coast is protected by the National Trust, largely thanks to the Neptune campaign - set up 50 years ago. 

Orcombe Point

The Geoneedle is made from the different rocks along the Jurassic Coast

Orcombe Point marks the most westerly point of the world famous Jurassic coast.

Standing at the summit is the five metre high stone sculpture known as the Geoneedle, cleverly sculptured from all the rocks found along this unique coast.

Exmouth's wild side

Travel along the red sandstone coastline returning inland with a visit to Maer Local Nature Reserve. This 4.3 mile (7km) walk explores the wilder side of Exmouth.

This is a South West Coast Path suggested trail.
