Very pretty and picturesque site next to the river with Harford Bridge itself as a backdrop. Easy to find from main road and we were not disturbed by traffic noise.

We were in the 'top field' on pitch 21 which was a riverside pitch, this was perfect for us as had slight sloping 'beach area' down to the river. Similar pitches to this are 17, 28, 29 and 30. In fact I would say pitches 28 & 29 are perfect if you have children as it's really easy access to the river and the water is much shallower here.

No swimming or inflatables in the river though which is a little disappointing if your kids like a supervised splash about. Pitch 1 is right next to Harford Bridge with large pebbled beach area.

The site is very well looked after and the camping fields separated by well planted tree areas giving a feeling of space and character rather than just a plain field. The showers and toilets are immaculate and modern, and plentiful. The hand driers are very posh - at first I thought it was a trouser press!

Small children's playing area with 2 slides, no ball games / football allowed anywhere on the park though which may upset some, but didn't bother us.

Indoor and outdoor washing up areas, laundry room, games room and tv room.

Close to Tavistock - very short drive so handy for groceries, there is a Morrisons on the Plymouth road on the other side of town. We went to the Peter Tavy Inn for lunch, nice food and cheery service but very expensive - we only live 50 minutes away in Devon and the prices are double for eating out. We had a cheese ploughmans, a meat salad, 2 bowls of chips, a coke and a cider and it came to 30!

The Trout & Tipple on the Tavistock road is equally expensive so it must be a 'Dartmoor' thing.

The only gripe for us was the dog exercising area - it's lovely and large and the site states 'you can let your dog run free' in the 4 acre field but there are horses loose in the field which is not ideal with a young boisterous puppy and an owner who is scared of horses! So we couldn't let our dog off the lead. I think if you are going to provide an exercising area it should be for dogs only, as many owners would probably worry about this as you are not sure if the horses are confident sharing their field.

We would definitely return to this site and recommend it to others.

This was our first trip out this year and we went as a large family group with two small children. This wasn't a problem and we were allocated two adjoining pitches near the river.

The site was spacious and didn't appear crowded, even over the bank holiday weekend. Beautifully clean and tidy, with good facilities for washing up, showering and even a small drying room. What struck us was the lack of noise in the evenings, as is sometimes the case on a busy site, but not in this case, thankfully.

There is a playground on the site, though with lots of families this got very busy. There is also a shop which sells the basics should you run out.

As regards location, it is within 5 minutes drive of Tavistock, which we love and there is easy access to the moor. There is a pub in the village, though that is less suited to children so we ventured a little further up the A386 to the Fox and Hounds near Lydford, where we had excellent food in a family friendly atmosphere.

All in all a very good site which we will be visiting again soon.

We booked 3 riverside pitches together with 2 of my sisters and their kids.

The booking process was very friendly.

The pitches were fantastic and were part of a large field. We has a great time on the field playing cricket with other families.

Everything about the site was clean and well laid out.

It was an ideal base for exploring Dartmoor and surrounding towns and villages.

I would recommend this site to anybody.

Not the most welcoming site, I booked over the phone as we were travelling to the site. The lady on the phone was very keen to take my money on credit card instead of waiting until we got there, we were about 30mins away & it was April so no chance of not getting a pitch.

The facilities were great, fabulous very well heated & excellently clean shower & toilet facilities. The washing up & laundry facilities were superb I think they were the best I have experienced. Only complaint is I wish they could have been closer to the pitches.

We would love to visit the site again in the summer when the kids can enjoy the river.

Overall a great site & would recommend.

3rd time back, I liked the pitch first time, so asked for the same pitch and got it, same o same o but its got everything we need. Not as many people this year, even better for us more room. Could do with lick of paint, but still very clean and friendly site,

Still lots to do when weather was bad ( if only you could bank on good weather ) A 30min drive to the nearest beach, and with Plymouth just down the road you don't feel like your in the middle of nowhere

A stunning site! Perfectly peaceful, with only the rushing of the water to disturb the rustling of the trees.

As you enter the site, the reception / shop / games / TV room is on your left. On your right is a large perfectly prepared lawn laid out with picnic tables. Continue towards the river and you arrive at the pitching areas.

The first pitching area is very approximately 200m x 80m level and well sheltered. The riverside pitches tend to be under trees; away from the river is in the open. Continue to the end through a gate and you are in a second much smaller area; again level and well sheltered. This is my favourite as it has a very cozy feel. Picnic tables are dotted about everwhere. There is free access to the river from both pitching areas, so families with children need to observe the obvious precautions.

There had been a considerable amount of rain during our visit, but the whole site remained solid and puddle free.

The wc / shower (free and substantially heated) facility is 6*, as is the pot washing / laundry facility opposite. No real problem, but these facilities are bit far from some of the pitches.

Dog friendly with a pleasant dog walking meadow just across from the entrance.

Buy your basics from the on-site shop; for everything else you need to go to Tavistock. Tavistock is a vey nice market town, but to get the best from it, go when the historic Pannier Market is open.

Two good eats & drinks pubs reasonably near. The Peter Tavy in Peter Tavy (Evening main courses 10 - 15) and the Trout & Tipple on the A386 towards Tavistock. ( Plymouth CAMRA Country Pub of the Year 2009)

Finally, a word of warning. There are many, many small lanes locally that are totally unsuitable for caravans. So I strongly advise not using your GPS in this area as primary navigation when towing. If you follow the GPS down one of these, you will not be happy I promise you.
