We passed through here on the Coast to Coast cycle route and stayed one night in our little tent. The owners weren't overly welcoming, although this was probably because we arrived late. There was a shed to put our bikes in which was good but it wasn't secure and we had to chain our bikes inside.

The site is beautiful, really picturesque by the river. It was Easter and quite a few families were there camping which was nice to see.

The showers were good, lots of hot water and clean.

The pub up the road in Peter Tavy was fantastic, I think it is the best pub meal I've had in Britain. We didn't book and had to wait for an hour until they had room, but the food was amazing and well worth the not so cheap price tag. The staff and patrons were all really friendly.

I think I'd come back to the campsite just to go to the pub again!

This is a great campsite.

It's a beautiful setting in a valley on the edge of Dartmoor, bounded by the River Tavy and with the Tors looming in the distance.

The ground is well-drained and tidy and you can pitch pretty much where you want (riverside pitches excluded) which makes for a relaxed and very friendly atmosphere.

Lavatories, wash basins, showers and washing-up facilities are all excellent - clean and well-maintained.

Good points:

Lovely setting. I know of no better site to sit outside, drink some wine, listen to the river and watch the stars.

The Peter Tavy Inn is only a short distance away and the food is seriously good. Try the lamb shank - outstanding.

Dartmoor on your doorstep. The last wilderness in Southern England - enjoy.

Bad points (OK, only one!)

Other reviewers have mentioned that they like to fool around in the river.

Firstly, it is too shallow to actually swim in and the riverbed is rocks/gravel so not suitable for children.

Secondly, the site owner charges visitors to fish and it's not cheap. If I want to fish, I have to pay to do so. Conversely, if I want to throw stones or chuck my dogs / kids into the river, thus ruining the fishing, I can do so for no charge.

Overall an outstanding site and one that I will continue to visit (but sort out the river usage!).

2nd time back. Same field, same pitch facing the river loved the site, lots of space. Playground to entertain the little ones, lots to do in the area. Staff helpful. There was never a queue for showers even though the site was busy, also very clean including the washing up area. Only draw back, long walk to shower block and no lighting around the site or proper road for the cars to travel around the site.

In case of rain. Tavistock was just down the road with all that one would need (indoor swimming pool, Cinema/theatre, Tea Rooms, also cheap shoe/handbag shops for Girl/Ladies to shop till they drop! oh by the way some Fishing for the Boys!)And would recommed this site.

This site has five hardstandings for caravans suitable for all year round use. Each pitch has its own electricity hook-up (16amp), water supply, television booster and grey water disposal. Ideal for those who struggle with fetching and disposing of water.

Very well laid out site and very well maintained. Grass was trimmed, hedges cut and good facilities for recycling.

Toliet blocks were very clean, reasonably heated and plenty of room in the showers with flip up seats in the dry area. Ample hot water.

Good laundry and dishwashing facilities. Ample hot water.

Good recreation areas, playground, tennis court and BBQ area. Resident ducks are delightful, just stop when they are crossing the road.

Owners were very friendly and obliging.

Shall return.

We chose the site since they claimed to be disabled friendly and were not dissapointed. The disabled toliet and shower room was very generously sized with plenty of room for the wheelchair user and carer. The shower has a low level screen plus a curtain with level access and a good seat.

We camped on the top field because it was easy to get a wheelchair to the toilets and washing up facilities. The pitches were a generous size and even at the Bank Holiday weekend we were not cramped.

Highly recommended.

Have just returned from a three night stay at this excellent campsite. It is large, beautifully laid out with fixed caravans, tourers and tents with some pitches available alongside a shallow river.  There is a large shower block with additional buildings including a laundry room, TV room and games room.  There is also a super children's playground as well as safe roads for cycles and lots of grassy spaces for games etc. There is a large field set aside for dog walking.
The pitches are large and the staff friendly and very helpful.  There is a reception with stocks of camping necessities such as batteries and gas.  The nearest shop is in Tavistock which is a few miles by car and well worth a visit as there are daily markets and lovely coffee shops. There are two pubs close by both child and dog friendly.
We drove over Dartmoor to Buckfastleigh to take a trip on the South Devon Steam railway to Totnes which runs along the beautiful River Dart.  While at Buckfastleigh we visited Buckfast Abbey and bought some of the tonic wine made by the monks.  Also near Tavistock is Morwellham Quay where you can wander around a Victorian village and take a train into an old copper mine.  Another good day out is further north towards Okehampton at Lydford Gorge (NT)  
The campsite is a good base to visit all of these places and there is easy access to the Dartmoor National Park.   
A relaxed, well maintained, quiet (except for the soothing sound of the river) and friendly site, which is suitable for families and couples who want to enjoy the countryside.
