The curious legend of a treacle mine in the village of Daccombe goes so far back in time no-one can remember how it all began. My father’s father was told it as a boy, as was I, and all our future generations will be teased with the fun myth too.
Almost as old as the legend is the name Daccombe Manor Farm campsite. Although this has served us well over the years, we thought, that due to the countless other Manor Farms in Britain we would try to capture the spirit of fun in our very own legend. Some bright spark suggested Treacle Valley and the rest is history.
Along with the name change we also hope to improve our facilities and the surroundings over the next few years. Even a classic campsite is just like an old camper van and needs dusting off, cleaning up and rejuvenating every season.
Last year we created our new look shower block and toilets and this year we have a big tree planting project and a new kids play area.
Running through and around the edges of the farm are streams and explorable woodlands and although accessible to all our campers, people hardly seem to notice. We will be working hard to make them part of the Treacle Valley holiday.
