Reviewer: Mic60 3 reviews from this member

The website gives the impression that this is a much bigger 'holiday park' than it actually is. This suited us well, because we don't really like these very big concerns. There is a small area of statics at the site entrance, but then you come to three smallish areas for the use of tourers and tents. Two are flat and the one we stayed on was sloping, but very well terraced. We were in the top pitch, with fabulous views down over the moorland. There was one other caravan near the bottom of the field and the management were kind enough to leave our view uninterrupted for most of our stay, despite lots of comings and goings.

The facilities were very good, with a large central block, well screened with vegetation, containing three toilets and showers for each sex, a private, disabled friendly bathroom, a laundry and washing up facilities. All were spotlessly clean at all times, hot water was freely available, and the ladies bathroom had a hair drier, which is always useful. I believe, however, that hot water is on a meter in the private bathroom.

In addition, there is a social hub called the manor. More a big house than a manor and a little shabby (or relaxed, if you prefer), this contained a bar and restaurant and a large lounge with widescreen TV and board games. The bar and restaurant was only open at the weekends with restricted hours and we did not eat there, but the food being served looked like good pub grub and lots of people were taking advantage of it. The football was on when we went in for a drink, but on subsequent occasions it was not, so they obviously only put it on for specific events, not as a general background noise, which is nice.

There is wifi in the manor and you can get the code by donating two pounds to charity. However, don't expect to be able to stream movies or music. I don't think broadband has reached Langstone Manor yet!

They are very keen on recycling and make it very easy to do, which is helpful.

The team were friendly and helpful and it was nice to be able to order baked goods for collection in the morning. We had freshly baked coissants on two mornings of our stay.

The site was very well located, with opportunities to walk on the moor from the gate. There were no pubs or shops very nearby, but we had a lovely drink in the gardens of the Two Bridges Inn, a short drive up the main road, past the turnoff for Princetown. They also do good cream teas.

Access with a large outfit would, I think be a bit scary, as the roads are very narrow and I dread to think what would happen if two large caravans met going in opposite directions on some of them. However, if you don't follow your satnav and go the way suggested, there is only a short stretch where this would be a problem.

Generally, a well located, well run campsite.

Langstone is a lovely quiet site, with good views and an excellent location for getting up onto the Moor, which is the main draw for us. Facilities are very clean, staff friendly. We have stayed several times and only discovered the bar for the first time this time(limited openings). They serve a small range of bar snacks-ideal for campers, wet evenings, and if you don't want to drive to go out to eat.

What a site whether you're camping caravaning or staying in a living van, pod or cottage this site excels itself with the level of service, standards of the pitches, topography of the site and the facilities.

The addition of the games room, lounge and bar in the manor house, the ability to have a cooked meal in the evening at a reasonable price is great.

We enjoyed our week her and will be back in the future

Reviewer: Eribaist 5 reviews from this member

We only had one week so rather than tow our van the 300 miles from Preston we decided to hire a static van. The price was very reasonable compared to that of a nearby site I checked out. The van was very well equipped, apart from a hair dryer. Each room had heating, important in Autumn. The site is sloping so anyone with mobility issues ask for a van in the top row. The shop and bar are at the top of the site. You need to go to the shop daily to get bread freshly baked. I liked the way the statics are all named after one of the Dartmoor Tors. If you arrive at the weekend; meals are available in the dog- friendly bar. This was very cosy being on the ground floor of the characterful house. I found the lighting too low for reading, as one or two lone campers were doing. If you are here for the beer, then try the local Jail Ale, brewed at Princetown. My interesting find this visit was the industrial archaeology of the Tamar Valley. Along with Tavistock a World Heitage Site owing to the copper and tin mining. Cyclists can use an old tram line from the Tamar Trails Centre near Gunnislake. Bikes can be hired here. You can also walk along the River from Cotehele Quay (National Trust)to Calstock where there is a fine pub and a dramatic viaduct. A very informative booklet of walks is available. I got mine from the camp site shop. This is a good place to go for campers who can't camp, as it does not have the soulless feel of a static site. Overall a beautiful site in a fascinating area, well recommended.

This is a beautiful site in an idyllic location. Although off the beaten track, the access is good and well-signposted. On arrival we had a very friendly welcome from the warden and our pitch was superbly located with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. There is a lot of attention to detail and there is a commitment to preserving the environment and encouraging wildlife. The toilet block was really good with large (if very hot. ) showers. I was taken ill during our stay and the wardens couldn't have been more helpful sorting taxis to the hospital etc. Walks on to Dartmoor are literally at the gate of the site. We would certainly go back again if in the area. Excellent value for money, too. A real gem.

Just returned from a few nights camped at Langstone Manor - What a fab site! The staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly.

Our pitch was a good size with a little picnic bench, which is a lovely touch. The site is very pretty, and much care has been taken with flowers and hedging, to give good screening around the site. We were impressed with the superb toilet facilities, laundry, Washing up and even a dog wash area. Very well thought out, and all very clean.

We visited the games room, and the toys and games in the pub for the kids was a great find on a wet day. The little ones enjoyed the park, and we appreciated the picnic benches dotted about the play area for a little sit to watch them play.

The site location is very pretty on the moor, the kids loved seeing all the sheep and cows grazing, Its only 10 mins from Tavistock, which is a super pretty place, with a great covered market. Basically this place is a great find and we will have to return.
