Date of Visit: August 2006 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Reviewer: Burhou 4 reviews from this member

Stayed 5 relaxing days on the pitch by the rope swing. Falling to sleep to the sound of the river is so soothing.
Found all facilities to be clean, lots of hot water and well lit. Well used children's playground and plenty of grass for games.
Lots of big groups of families on the central, general camping areas.
There is no shop on the site so need to shop in Tavistock - Morrison's or the market.
The pub in Peter Tavy is very good. Dogs are welcome and get a biscuit or two and our 2 meals there were very good. If you don't want to walk up go early as it is a small car park or get a taxi. We were told by several people that the Elephant's Nest in Mary Tavy is also very good but avoid the Trout and Tipple!

We thought this campsite fantastic for children, nice lot of space for them to run around in and a good play area. Plenty of trees for shade but it did get rather chilly in the nights. The river was fun, if VERY cold!, we took a small inflatable boat and the kids had a great time.

The nearest pub, although a bit of a trek, serves excellent food (no it's not cheap but you get what you pay for) and is opposite a children's playground. Only gripe was other people driving a bit too fast once on the site, but that's not a fault of the campsite!

This was our first attempt at caravaning, and the site is truly fantastic! Lots of space, clean facilities and fantastic views. We stayed in the bottom field, next to the leaping trout, kingfisher and rope swing over the river.wow. Got a little bitten by the midgees, but that is our only criticism, and you have to expect it being so close to running water. We will certainly go back to this site for years to come, as it it is a hidden gem.

Arrived at around 7.30 pm which to us isn't late, but didn't exactly have the warmest of welcomes by the owner, who just pointed to a field and said you can pay in the morning!

The showers etc were pretty basic (and cobwebby) and poorly lit at night. Running along side of the site is a stream and you could fish in there or simply take a paddle!

Good location for exploring Dartmoor National park and close by to the town of Tavistock.

Peaceful site.

Management response: Sorry to hear that your welcome was not too warm. Perhaps we had a bad day. After all we are all human

The "stream" you quoted happens to be the fastest flowing river in England. It supports a large amount of Trout and Salmon and is a classic Dartmoor River. Come and see it in "Spate" and you will be scared at it`s ferocity

We have addressed the cobwebs. The toilets are hardly poorly lit, perhaps you visited them at dusk just before the sensor switched them on. They are finely adjusted to conserve energy in line with our policy to address pollution.

We pride are selves on our position of being one of 30 parks nationwide to be awarded Bellamy GOLD award 7 years without a break

Being a Four star park with "Visit england.com" The showers are hardly basic as they have to confirm to a strict grading standard.

Lovely relaxed chilled out site. The non EHU field though has no water tap or bins (just round the corner) and it's a long way to the toilet block from there - not so good I would have thought in the middle of the night as there's limited lighting. I loved all this (we are in a motorhome!) - you might not have liked it with little kids in a tent. The facilities are fine - the river is good and there is loads of space for the kids to play. We would definitely come here again. Played on the bar football and there's a table tennis table and tennis courts. Loads of good things to do on Dartmoor and this is a good base.

Agree with all other posts. Only two problems we found:
1. Although the showers and toilets are clean there are spider webs in them and there was a rather large wolf spider hanging around the toilets.
2. It is a mile to the pub! Not too bad if flat but this is a mile up and down hills. Its worth it when you get there though although no cheap food.
The children really enjoyed this site. The playground is good and the river is great. Get there early unless you've booked EHU as these are the only numbered pitches. It is a free for all for non-EHU.

Everything else about this site was excellent - no traffic noise at all.
