This is a fantastic little campsite with the friendliest and most welcoming owners I have met anywhere. The emphasis is on peaceful simple camping, with just a small children's play area and a little on site shop stocking essentials and local produce. It's a family friendly site but we also found it to be perfectly gay friendly - in fact the only people not so warmly welcomed were those making an awful lot of noise very late at night.
Having said that it definitely wasn't a stuffy atmosphere, just pro-consideration. The site is relatively small but with enough space between pitches to avoid feeling intrusive. It's situated on the top of a hill on the edge of Dartmoor, the views are stunning but pack an extra fleece!

Despite hot sunny days there was still ground frost at night. Happily campfire equipment is available for hire, stylish blacksmith designed metal containers, wood and kindling are all provided and made for some really cosy evenings. The fresh coffee and pastries you can order for breakfast were lovely. The shower block is immaculate (if small) and the owners work extremely hard to keep it that way.

The local pub in Drewsteignton is a couple of miles walk and well worth it - the atmosphere is cheery and the food is really good. There are lots of lovely villages with good pubs nearby and some of the most devastatingly beautiful bits of Dartmoor.

The only downside during our stay was a series of *(see below) power cuts* which resulted in a lack of hot water on a couple of days. However the owners worked so hard to sort this out and were so keen to make sure we had everything we needed without disturbing us that even this didn't spoil our trip.

I'll definitely be going back and I'd recommend it to anybody - Barley Meadow deserves to do well, the owners really do go the extra mile.

*Response from site owner

Unfortunately this was due to a transformer failing - not our fault - but we have upgraded our electric supply by an extra phase to prevent this happening in the future - we have effectively doubled our power supply. Since then we've had no problems and over May Bank Holiday we were full - so please be assured this wont happen again

What a welcome ! The owners can't do enough to help- Paul even booked us a table at the pub and collected us later on for the princely sum of 3 ! Very child friendly and clean. A lovely setting in a fantastic area of Dartmoor. We loved our stay here and would recommend it to any one.

What a lovely site and what fantastic hosts Paul and Cath are. This site must rank amongst the best we have stayed on. It has a lovely clean bright spacious shower block where the water is always hot and includes a separate disabled room with all facilities.The shop is very reasonable and the fresh bread / croissants and peculated coffee delivered to the tent is just brilliant ! They have a little summer house packed to bursting with books and magazines to borrow. The middle of the site has a children's play area with a sand pit and plenty of outdoor toys for toddlers, all the children seem to be having a wonderful time, for the older ones there is a games room with a pool table and table football. The site is well laid out with plenty of colourful bushes and flowers. Paul seem to be running around everywhere helping everybody out and taking an interest in what you where doing and giving helpful advise when needed. The views across to Dartmoor are stunning ! So if you are on your way to Cornwall and looking for an overnight stop just off the A30, 10 miles from Exeter we don't think you can better this site.

One of the best sites we have been to! Cath and Paul are new owners this year and are really trying to make the site as they would want it. Spotlessly clean toilets, wonderfully friendly atmosphere, helpful hosts and freshly baked croissants for breakfast - who could want more. We will definitely be returning.

Lovely clean and friendly site. The owners can not do enough to welcome you. Good flat pitches with plenty of space. Toilet block very clean .
The owners make a yummy cream tea that you can have under a giant gazebo ! Will return just for the friendly morning smiles from the owners ...oh and the taste of the scones!
