Unfortunately we have been advised the Dartmoor Halfway Inn is closed until further notice.

Apparently the company who own the pub and the site will be looking into reopening the pub and site as soon as possible.

If you are aware that the site has reopened please let us know. Many thanks.

Used to go to this campsite often but returned this week after an illness stopped us travelling for a while. We were disappointed to note the campsite is not as it was. The pub has had a facelift and is much brighter and modern but unfortunately they have let the campsite go. We stayed only 3 days electing to leave before our week was up. The toilets were not cleaned in that time and clothes were left in the sinks in the laundry. No one else could use it. The person booking us in said the toilets could do with updating-he is right. We remember them being built many years ago and they haven't been updated at all. There was no lighting in the campsite at night.

The clientele on the site appear to be mostly residential and played very loud music but complained with four letter base language when our dog barked. They knocked us up in the early hours complaining our small security light was bothering them.

We will not return.

This was our second visit to this site, the first being approx 2 years ago. We really enjoyed our first visit, but on arriving we were made aware of some changes ( not necessarily better!) We think that the pub and site have changed hands? When we arrived we were told that you could no longer take your car to your pitch unless loading or unloading your vehicle, you now had to leave it in the pub carpark and walk to your pitch (something that my husband and myself do not like and would not normally have booked) You cannot see your cars from the site and therefore cannot keep an eye on it! Also a sign in the carpark warns that you park at your own risk! Surely if you are abiding by the rules then the site must accept responsibility if your car is broken into?? Also they now have a barrier and request 20 returnable deposit if you wish to take your car into site for loading/unloading etc. It poured with rain everyday we were there and we got soaked running to/from the car to the pitch. The site was how we remembered it, high hedges around each pitch, secluded feeling and very quiet.

The facilities were reasonably clean, although 1 shower in ladies and 1 shower in gents would not be enough if site was completely full!My husband did find another shower like a family room around the side, but he`s not sure if it was marked accordingly? I didn't see a play area as such just a slide frame in the pub garden itself, you wouldn't be able to watch your child from the site while he was playing on this, also it is situated right near an extremely busy road!

We had a meal at the pub, which was nice, we also got 10% discount as we were staying at the site which we thought extremely good!. This site is in our opinion more for people wanting a certain amount of quite and privacy, I do not think it suitable for children. There is a washing/drying room also which is good. There is no shop nearby so you must drive to get to shops, the pub is on a very busy and fast road and there is nothing actually there, it is about 4 miles from Newton Abbot, but there is a Post Office a couple of miles away. This second visit was ok but I don't think we will be returning again.

This is my second visit to this site, and what a transformation.

The whole site looked a lot cleaner and more presentable than when I first visited 2 years ago.

On arrival we were greated by friendly bar staff who checked us in and allocated us pitch number 1 out of 22. You still need to leave a 20 deposit for the barrier keycard, which is refundable.

Our pitch was by the corner of the small river and was surrounded by flower borders. The pitch was very well kept and had easy access for our van. All the pitches on the site are of good size and are separated by hedges.

The site is only small and very peaceful, and an ideal place for visiting the local attractions.

The toilet/shower block is well heated with one hot shower in the male's and one for the ladies, and the block was kept very clean.

We did not experience much noisy traffic from the main road, and the pub was nowhere near as noisy as it was during our last visit. In fact the sound of the water flowing down the river made more noise than the pub.

We had lunch in the pub on Sunday, which was fantastic. I fully recommend the carvery with its very tasty melt in the mouth beef, and flavoursome fresh vegetables. The hostess was very welcoming, chatty and pleasant to all visitors to the pub in equal measures.

This visit was much better than my previous and I would definitely visit again.

This is the first time I visited this site with my own caravan, the pitches are well sized and easy to get into, I had a pitch next to the river and my only complaint is the amount of cover from the trees and the tree sap deposited on the pitches next to the river.

The site is lovely and quiet, and although the A383 is close it's not a nuisance

The shower block is looking it's age, but the showers are hot and the block itself warm

The staff are friendly and very helpful.

We've booked again for next year as it's close to all the places you'd want to visit when you're down that way.

Handy site just off the A38 and as others have commented clean,quiet and right by a stream and pub. Good hot shower and washing machines etc. Used the pub which is mainly food orientated from quite an extensive menu,couple of local real ales on and you weren't kept waiting long by the busy staff.

Very reasonable rates paid 12/night for one with ehu and TV point. Barrier system wasn't in use during my visit and was permanently up.

For those not wishing to drive anywhere there is a bus service to Newton Abbot and beyond along the main road.
