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.

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.
