Stopped for 3 nights as a group of 9 whilst walking in the area.

A nice open field that's slightly sloping with mature hedges and trees around the outside. Having a long EHU lead gives you a better selection of where to pitch. The facilities are shared with the camping barn, so one cubicle and one shower can lead to a wait, but the shower's nice and hot and they were kept clean.

The location is great for walking as it's right on a farm track that leads up on to the open moorland behind. On a bus route so catching the bus and walking back is also an easy option.

The pub serves good food and beer, and you can also book in for a nice cooked breakfast in the morning.

Had a really enjoyable stay and this will no doubt turn in to a site we visit regularly.

The Fox and Hounds campsite was a great find. We decided to have a 'get away from it all' Christmas. We live in Cornwall and it was only 30 miles from home - arrived on Christmas Day and cooked our roast dinner -weather was damp and misty but didn't matter as we had planned a cosy day 'at home'. Went over to the pub in the evening and joined in a rather manic pub quiz - good fun and we had a fantastic supper buffet on the house. Lovely food and the best chips ever- we were made very welcome by the staff. Stayed for 3 nights. Site is next to a footpath leading directly on to Dartmoor so excellent walking in sunshine! Friends came over who lived near Crediton and we treated them to lunch in the pub. It was their first visit to the pub and they rated it a real keeper. Pie of the day - pork and Stilton was rated by my husband as the best pie he had ever eaten. They serve food all day - very fresh and home cooked. The site is quiet and great hot showers, staff excellent and we certainly will be back!

Great friendly site, just what we needed for a 1 night stop - though you could easily stay longer. Facilities are basic but free hot showers and a pitch with EHU starts from £10. 50. So not expensive at all.

The pub serves pub & more restaurant type food. Dogs are welcome in the bar, but doesn't really matter as all food is served anywhere you want to sit. The site obviously has some long term residents but adds to the charm. Only thing I would maybe update is, it would be nice to have a locking door on the shower as it's just a shower curtain, but the shower is hot and free - worth noting they are up a flight of steps.

A good site, nice people and excellent value.

Used this site as a stop over on way to Cornwall. Site had a few static caravans and some tourer caravans that looked like they were permanently there. Basically a field behind a pub with 2 ladies toilets and a sink and a shower ( mens' same ) above a separate building which I think was a skittle alley. Shower only had a curtain with no door which I found a bit strange ! Only stopped one night so wasn't an issue. Nice walks over moors next to site. Only £10 for our family so a great cheap stop over. I couldn't see that there were any washing up facilities.

Clean tidy facilities my wife says the showers were the best in this region, easy going site my best experience was the food in the pub. Its definitely an eating pub I would rate it 9. 8 out of 10. It took me a bit of finding but that was due to driver error (I am not familiar with this area) but it was a gem and worth finding.

We thought we'd give this place a go, as our usual overnight stopover site for Cornwall closed last year. It's about 4 miles south of the A30 so staying there as a stop over involves a small detour, but it's well worth it.

It's a fairly small site behind an ageing pub/hotel on the edge of Dartmoor. There are a few static caravans and clearly some long term residents staying on the site, apart from them we pretty much had the place to ourselves, even in peak season. Access to the site is down a small lane between some out buildings and therefore might be a bit tight if you're towing a big caravan, but you should be fine so long as you watch out for the big stone on the right hand side as you pass through the gate to the field.

The toilet & shower block is small, but clean & relatively modern. It's also well hidden on the upper floor of the outbuilding that's to your left as you walk up the lane from the road. There were no signs when we visited though and I only found the shower block by chance when I saw a door open at the top of an external wooden staircase and decided to investigate!

A short walk up the lane that runs down the side of the site, leads to the national park, with some spectacular views & scenery, making this a perfect base for exploring/hiking on dartmoor. The pub/hotel attached to the site is a traditional country inn with friendly & helpful staff. The place probably needed a makeover about 20 years ago, but that's all part of it's old fashioned charm and really shouldn't be changed in my opinion. We decided to try the Breakfast on offer there, which was reasonable enough, but at £9. 95 for adults & £6. 95 for kids, it was a bit overpriced for what it was and the type of place serving it.

At £8. 50 per night (+ £3 for Electric Hook Up) though, this place is an absolute bargain, I've paid more than double that for similar sites with no facilities and this place has a shower block & hook up! I'd thoroughly recommend it as a stopover, or even for a couple of days exploring Dartmoor. At that price we'll definitely be back, although we'll probably give breakfast a miss next time.
