Runnage Farm Camping Barns and Bunkhouse is a wonderful campsite in the centre of Dartmoor National Park. Surrounded by miles and miles of open countryside, the site is a beacon for walkers, trekkers, Scouts, DOE and campers alike, but big enough to create your own little haven.

There is plenty of space for pitching tents in different fields, two camping barns and a bunkhouse. We were camping in a tent and this review echoes our stay.

The showers, toilets and washing up facilities are good but basic which reflects that this is a working farm not a holiday park. You can have real fires and there is a great pub within walking distance. The nearest town only has a small store, so be prepared to bring all your essentials. Our hosts were most helpful and kind during our stay.

This is a fabulous place to come and unwind in the heart of Dartmoor. Don't forget to look out for Zach the Collie!

I would highly recommend this campsite. You can pitch where ever you wish so we pitched right next to the stream on the back field with only two other campers on the field.

Very peaceful feel here right in the heart of dartmoor, on a working farm. Owners are very nice only saw them once on arrival. Shower block is clean and has hot water.

They allow fires here which just adds to the camping experience. For only a fiver each a night it's a bargain!

I would definitely return.

Our favourite campsite anywhere. Have been three times- twice early season and once late season. The toilets and showers were fine, the noise levels fine and the owners lovely.

No-one can reach you by mobile phone for miles around. There are miles of idyllic walks, lovely pub and shop about 1.5 miles, you are on a working farm in the middle of Dartmoor, you can pitch by a stream and light a small fire. What more could you want!

I cannot say that I am overly enamoured with this site, the pitches are wet and soggy and uneven. There are no rules regarding noise and as a consequence, some other campers were noisy. We were also disturbed by quad bikes driving around at 2am.

For people wishing use barbeques, the owners do not appear to object to small campsite fires. We were there at a busy time of year and the shower/toilet facilities can just about cope with the demand. As a warning for mobile phone users, there is virtually no reception for several miles surrounding the farm.

Despite that, Runnage Farm is ideally situated within Dartmoor and is located within a fairly pretty hollow.

I am not too sure whether I would use the site again. The deciding factor would be rainfall.

I love this campsite. It's rough and ready. The showers and loos are horrid, the pitches are often soggy, uneven, not level and the grass is not mown, and the place smells of manure. I haven't had to share it with DoEers or summer party people but that would also get on my nerves. Nevertheless there's something magic about it - it's a beautiful place in a wonderful part of the world. The owners are friendly and helpful, too. I'll go back again and again when I'm on hiking trips to Dartmoor when I fancy sleeping somewhere with a loo and a shower: I just wouldn't stay there with Mrs MG as she'd go mad!

Great location in the middle of the moor. But for tent campers at least the owners have no rules or interest in noise levels - we were kept awake by the music of other campers until 3am :-( Maybe we were unlucky (it was the summer equinox weekend) For children, beware that the toilets, etc are the other side of a working farm yard (tractors etc.).
