- Location & Parking
Where is Baxter?Baxter is based less than 5 minutes from the M5/A30 and A38. We are also next to a cycle path, so there's an option of arriving by bike and letting us provide you with everything you need for a brilliant holiday. Once you've collected Baxter you will be right in the heart of the south Devon countryside, so your holiday will start immediately. The south Devon coastline is 5 minutes away and the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Coastline and Dartmoor National Park are less that 30 minutes from pick-up. Cornwall is an hour away. Baxter is the perfect camper van, with plenty of space for a comfortable holiday yet easy to drive and nippy enough to explore the country lanes. Whilst Devon and the south west are the perfect location for a relaxing break, there are also plenty of activities for day when you feel more adventurous.
