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.

A very tidy site with lots and LOTS of rules!

Unfortunately the wardens are a little small minded when it comes to children, awning pegs, etc etc.

This is a shame as the pub down the road is excellent and friendly.

Sometimes it seems that when working as a warden day in day out with lots and lots of rules, they can get a little excessive.

I won't be going back to this site until they learn to relax a little.

There are far better, friendlier sites on Dartmoor.

It's a shame as Lydford Gorge is spectacular.

This was our second visit to this site, we so love it here that we are already looking foward to next year when we hope to visit with friends.

For those who like a peaceful holiday this is the place, within minutes you can walk to the moors,or you can cycle in any direction. Those who want to travel more afield can do so easily, lots to see and visit.

Lydford Gorge is close by and you are not many miles from the interesting museum at Dartmoor Prison. Taverstock on a Saturday makes a good morning out, or a trip to Okehampton.

The campsite was always clean and tidy and the wardens always willing to answer any questions. Whilst on our daily hikes which ever direction we travelled there was always a good pub to eat and drink at.

A lovely, CC affiliated, site situated on the outskirts of Lydford village on Dartmoor.

On arrival (off the A30/A386 then village road -so no tiny lanes to negotiate!) you are welcomed by cheery wardens and shown to your pitch.

There are 3 fields, the first one nearest to the facilities block, the second one with mainly hardstandings & EHU's with views of the moor and the third one, higher up, mainly for tents (no EHUs) with fabulous views of the surrounding moors and Devon countryside.

The facilities block houses both ladies and gents, showers, toilets and privacy cublices (in the ladies) and was kept clean at all times. Plenty of free hot water in the showers and the cubicles are a decent size too. There is also a laundry and a dishwashing area (under cover) with information room.

Opposite the block is a motorhome service point. The reception also sells a few food items (no shop in the village) and you can order daily newspapers the day before: note - there is a 10p per paper delivery charge. There is a fantastic dog walk on site up around the third field with fab views and poo bins along the route.

Plenty to do in the local area if you fancy a weekend without using the car. From the village war memorial take a left and a 5/10 minute stroll takes you to the start of the Granite Way (a cycle track to Okehampton). Turn right at the war memorial and it takes you into the village.

Once again a 10/15 minute stroll takes you to the heart of the village and the pub (Castle Inn) which we would highly recommend (good food, great cider and doggie friendly): note - gets VERY busy from 7:30pm onwards so book if you want to be sure of a table. Next to the pub is Lydford Castle ruins, run by English Heritage and it's free to have a mooch around.

The church sits next to the castle. Further out of the village is Lydford Gorge, run by the National Trust (so it's not cheap - 6.50 per person!). The site also provides information of other local walks (Lydford viaduct - very overgrown but a nice walk down the the river!) and Lydford forest (didn't fancy doing this in torrential rain!) being another two of them.

All in all a lovely site in a great village. Would certainly stay again and hope for less rain and more sunshine next time!
