Very rustic, camping in someones back garden or their paddock. Toilet facilities are shared with the house on a 'Jack and Jill' system, adequate when I was there.

Owners very friendly, if a little eccentric, but a nice setting. Felt like camping in the wilds, all sorts of tweets and twitterings.

Campfires allowed, but bring your own wood.

Some good walks along the River Teign, down to Dunsford and up to Castle Drogo.

Beware very narrow lanes with few passing places.

However, 2 wonderful nights in the middle of nowhere!

I stayed at Sweet Meadows for a couple of nights in July. It's in a delightful setting not far from the Teign, with miles of riverside and woodland walks nearby.

There are a few options for camping: the garden, a small field behind the house and a larger paddock beyond that. We opted for the garden which was sheltered and secluded.

The facilities are on the basic side (a toilet and shower attached to the owner's house) but perfectly adequate for the size of the site, and totally in keeping with its remote setting.

There are lots of narrow lanes leading from the site to nearby Drewsteignton, Dunsford, Chagford and Moretonhampstead, so be prepared to reverse!

I'd definitely go back.

From reading other reviews and after staying there for two nights with the family in June 2012, whether you will enjoy your stay or not depends on what you want from a campsite.

The facilities are basic and cannot cope with more than 8 or so tents (1 toilet, 1 shower, 1 sink). However, if you want to stay in the back garden of a lovely, friendly, local couple and enjoy the delights of the area then this is for you.

Gorgeous river walks just down the road. During our short walk in the late afternoon a family of deer crossed across the path perhaps 50 yards in front of us - breathtaking. The owners are very relaxed and our boys loved the campfires we had every night as well as a short ride on the horses.

Lovely pubs to eat in or have a drink within a 15 minute drive.

Without a doubt, we will be back again soon.

People should know that this isn't really maintained as a campsite in the usual sense of the word. It's someone's back garden and spare loo that they make available to campers.

It has a rather run-down feel and one gets the impression that improvements are highly unlikely in the near future - the owners are not in the first flush of youth! On arrival we were unable to make contact for over half an hour even though we shouted our heads off, yet there was someone in the house all the time.

The single toilet is shared with the occupants of the house via a double entrance which was confusing. There is only hot water (and thus shower) at certain times of day. Prices have increased substantially for 2012 and do not, I feel, reflect the service provided.

All that said, the owners were very welcoming (once they heard us!) and helped generously with various items. The location is superbly remote with fantastically dark skies, so great for star gazing if you get a clear night.

The Teign valley is a grand area for walking, and Dunsford has a good pub and occasionally a great tea shop.

Reviewer: Monty Lovering 1 review from this member

We first visited Sweet Meadows in 2010 for a week or so, and returned in 2011 for three weeks.

It is extremely isolated and requires good map-reading or GPS to get to - and even with GPS make sure you are certain the address you're using is the right one! Just the post code can put you several hundred metres and turns away.

It is quiet, the owners are wonderfully English and welcoming, and if there are seven other groups staying that counts as very busy. The 'facilities' are pretty basic; one loo and a shower.

But it is really nice to be somewhere so back-to-basics; you're camping in a back garden, can have campfires - it's as far from the big campsites with row after row of tent as could be.

Electricity is available if you're close enough to the house. There are about three pitches in the garden, another three or so on the tennis court, with others available in the paddocks.

The area is outstandingly beautiful, most people only stay a few days but often wish they could stay longer (thus our extended return visit).

Great for getting away from it all, families or couples that like the great outdoors, not so good if a purpose-built shower block and on-site shop are essentials for you (it's a drive or an hours walk to get anywhere).

After a very pleasant drive down some narrow country lanes we came upon Sweet Meadows Campsite.

After a jolly welcome we were shown to one of the fields which was compact but very nice with a very level camping field.

The toilet, shower and sink were in a room at the end of the main thatched house and were well maintained. There are plenty of walks around about the site and only a short drive to lots of walks across Dartmoor.

Mornings at the campsite began with song birds and the sound of horses in a nearby field as a gentle awaken. A very pleasant stay and definitely a place to visit again.
