We have stayed at this site in a tent and a campervan and enjoyed both visits. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, also a good source of knowledge for local walks.

The facilities are of a good standard if perhaps a little dated. They were always spotless and never had to wait for a shower or sink.

The hard standing pitches are level and a good size but the best views are in the tent field. Lovely dog walk around the edge of the tent field, although this did make our dog bark when others walked their dogs round behind our tent!

The location is excellent with the moors, a forest and lydford gorge all within a short pleasant walk. Also very close to a cycle route and three pubs within walking distance. The only downside is there is no local shop and the supplies in the campsite shop are very basic.

Just stayed on this site for 3 nights. We were expecting it to be very busy being August, but even though the 2 van fields were full, the site was still quiet and peaceful for the whole stay.

We thought the facilities could do with a lick of paint, but were always clean and the showers were nice and hot.

We ate at the Castle Inn on 2 evenings, we sat outside under a big umbrella in the drizzle with our dog - too busy inside. Food - basic, good pub grub.

There is a bus stop just down the road, and we got a bus to Sourton and walked back on the Granit Way. Also we did the route around the Gorge. Plenty to do from site without moving the van.

Make sure you have everything you need with you, no shops in walking distance, except the site shop which is just a few bits in the reception area.

We will definitely be coming back for some more peace and quiet!

A well organised site that splits up capervans, caravans and tents.

The views from the tent site is fantastic and best! I'm sure you can negotiate a pitch if you have a caravan/ campervan. The facilities are the best ones that we have experienced so far. The reception/ shop does hold lots of info but not so much groceries, but you will get hold of the basic stuff. Bring your own kids entertainment eg cricket bat/ frisbee/ football etc, because even if the place is busy, there is still plenty of space for kids to run around. Highly recommend!

Just spent 4 wonderful nights here and will definitly return again next year. So peaceful and relaxing with a wonderful view from the top field. Very doggy friendly with a good walk for them around the perimeter of the site with poo bins on route. Grass kept well manicured as are the trees, shrubs, flowers etc.

Showers are superb. Hot and powerful. Always kept clean and tidy.

Lots of information on walks and things to do in the local and surrounding areas.

Plenty of rules and regulations and more than happy to adhere to them to help keep this site as good as it is. A credit to the wardens who run it who were always on hand to help with any questions we had and kept the site spotless.

We have just returned from 2 weeks at this great site. Weather was very mixed and at times it was a bit muddy but that would happen anywhere.

We arrived on Sunday having booked for a week, by Tuesday we asked we could book for another week as we were so taken with the site and the area. The facilities are very good, hot showers and individual wash cubicles and kept very clean.

The wardens work very hard. There are lots of notices reminding of the rules but this makes for an excellent stay, they are very keen on recycling which is good.

It is a very peaceful location but plenty to do in the immediate area. There are lots of great walks around the site locally (recommend Lydford Gorge).

The Castle Inn which is about 10/15 mins walk from the site does good food. The Fox & Hounds on the A386 about a mile and half away is also very good but you need sturdy legs or a car to access it. Tavistock is a lovely town worth a visit.

We also went to Plymouth and used the Park & Ride to access the town centre. We had a ride on the big wheel, which whilst not cheap (7. 50 each) was worth it for the views over the town and the Hoe and the docks.

All in all a fantastic 2 weeks at an excellent site at a reasonable price too.

We chose this site purely on position due to the route we were taking on our way south, but what luck. It was a lovely site, well looked after, and the wardens were very friendly and helpful.

It was not overly busy being midweek and during the school term but the pitches were well arranged so as not to be overcrowded. Lydford is a quaint village with a lot of history.

We enjoyed a walk through the village visiting the castle and the church and of course called at the wonderful olde worlde pub for a pint or two of Tribute!

We were only on site for one night but there is more to see and do in the area and hope to visit again in the future.
