Have just spent a week at this lovely site. Easily accessible and about an 45 minute walk into Tavistock. We were met by friendly staff and were surprised to find that we were only the second unit on the site although it did fill up a little towards Easter. Our pitch was very large and in good condition despite the heavy rain they had just had. Lovely views over the bridge and river.

The toilet block was a few minutes walk and accessed by a good path. Clean and tidy with plenty of hot water. It was an extremely cold week and not many of us there but the block could have been just a tad warmer, other than that very good.

For those with dogs a lovely exercise field is available opposite the entrance. They can run free to their hearts content and the horses don't pay any attention.

Some very good walks direct from the site and the Peter Tavy is a must. Excellent food and good selection of local beer. It is dog friendly and they can go into all parts including the restaurant area.

If you venture into Tavistock and you like soup then try the coffee shop within the market they served a good selection of homemade soups. The farmers market on a friday was very good, small but full of lovely local produce. If travelling into town in a camper of motorhome parking behind the library on the plymouth road is fine.

Stayed here for a night last summer on the way to Cornwall, with 3 kids aged 9 to 13. Lovely site, we were lucky it was a lovely sunny day. Kids enjoyed paddling in the river and building a dam, good old fashioned kids fun. Lovely open space to play badminton etc that we bought with us. Indoor tabke tennis table. Nice hardstanding pitch for motorhome. We had a bit of a walk out in the lanes trying geocashing for the first time but we weren't very good at it lol. Only a brief visit but a very nice site.

Harford Bridge was the first outing for our new tent and we couldn't have asked for a better campsite. The only thing I would change (if I could) would be to live closer to Harford Bridge, making it easier to visit for the occasional weekend! Combined with the nearby Peter Tavy Inn, I cannot recommend the site enough.

The camp site was at about 50% capacity so we bagged a pitch along the edge of the river. Initially I had concerns that the noise of rushing water would be too loud (or worse, encourage late night trips to the toilet!) but if anything the sound was therapeutic.

A large group of families had booked several pitches near the children's play area and it was good to see the campsite catered for the younger campers - free range children!

There were a number of picnic benches dotted around which we took advantage of, but it would have been nice to know if we were allowed to move them (we did). In a busy period I can imagine some people getting territorial over 'their' picnic bench.

Each pitch was numbered and deep enough so that the door to the tent wasn't close to the track running through the site.

The toilets/showers/laundry/etc were a couple of minutes walk and to a very high standard. Toilets and showers were separated, with showers having a good divide between wet and dry areas.

Another nice touch was a TV/Library room near reception. For those spending a week or two in a tent, the little home comforts make all the difference especially when you simply cannot miss whatever reality show is on the box.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record and as other reviewers have said, the Peter Tavy Inn is a must (especially if you've been on a camping stove for a few days). It's about 30 minutes to walk, up a slight incline (but downhill on the way home!) on unpaved roads so we took the car.

The site is close to a number of lovely (albeit steep) cycle routes, so if you have two wheels, take them along.

We have visited this site many times in the past and have always found it to be excellent.

However, this time, being a double bank holiday weekend at the start of half term, we actually felt that it was over-crowded. There were many large groups with numerous children running wild.

The rules of the park quite clearly state 'no swimming', 'dogs on leads' and 'no noise between 11pm and 8am'. Unfortunately, several people did not adhere to these rules, making it less of a pleasant stay than normal.

Despite the rather damp! weather and the site being full, the staff managed to maintain their usual, very high, standard of cleanliness in the toilet/shower block.

As other reviewers have already stated, the site is within 2 miles of Tavistock and within a mile of the very good Peter Tavy Inn.

There are several types of pitch - from fully serviced to a patch of grass for your tent.

I would recommend this site (it is usually very pleasant and quiet) and we will return. Just not when school holidays and bank holidays coincide!

WINTER CAMPING

2 people, tent, 1 car

£13. 50 Pitch

£3 EHU

First impression wasn't great as there were aload of statics and just a field in the middle. Spoke to the owner and he said the sheep were on the main camping field which was right next to the river. We asked to camp there instead of the grass in the middle of the site. Glad we did. The scenery is great and you can hear the water running which is a bonus. They have ducks on site too

The toilets and facilities are well maintained

They have a tv room/library and a games room. There are some stables on the site which is nice. They have tennis courts too. The club internet is a bit of a rip off though. 2 hours from the moment you log in is a joke.

Pub a mile down the road is small but cosy. Shops in Tavistock are 10 mins drive away

We really enjoyed the site, in a brilliant location, no noise and the owner was friendly

We have stayed at this site 3 times this year so must be good.

The staff are friendly.

The pitch sizes are very large.

The site has great facilities including, plenty of hot water for showers, spotless toilets, lots of washing-up sinks, freezer for ice packs, laundry facilities, small shop selling essentials.

We stayed first next to the Riverside, and as stated by others, it is really noisy and quite cold.

Second time we stayed other side of the field next to the hedge, we definitely prefered this one.

The third time in the next field, so closer to the toilets as this was all we could get on August bank holiday. We had our own water, electrics but felt out of place between the caravans.

The ducks are friendly and will eat any leftover bread you have.

There is a TV room with lots of leaflets for local attractions.

There is also a games room.

Supermarkets are so easy to get to and Tavistock has plenty of places to eat at.

We will camp at this site if in the area and would recommenced it to anyone.
