 The Knole is perfectly located for exploring the western side of Dartmoor. Predominantly sloping grass, there is an area of hardstanding just inside the site entrance which would probably be suitable for two caravans or motorhomes. At the far end of the site there are superb views through a gateway of Dartmoor with Widgery Cross/Brat Tor, Great Links Tor & Great Nodden easily identifiable. The EHU & water supply is located in a wooded area in the centre of the site, so long electric cables will be required if you decide to pitch around the edge of the site. However, the owners do have some extension cables if required. There is a very basic information room that also houses the recycle bins.

Walking & biking from the site is easy with the Granite Way only half a mile away which is the old railway line between Okehampton & Lydford. Other trails also come through the area such as the West Devon Way, Two Castles Trail & the Dartmoor Way. On our walks we managed to find pubs on the entry/exit to the moors Ė those being The Fox & Hounds at Shortacombe; The Bearslake Inn at Lake Sourton [a superb thatched inn which we would highly recommend]; the Dartmoor Inn at Lyford. All were welcoming hostelries after time spent walking the tors & moors.

There is a pub [The White Hart] and a newly opened [in 2013] post office/shop in Bridestowe village that sold all manner of goods and daily newspapers.

There was some farm traffic noise at the end of most days but we didnít find it particularly intrusive. We were visited daily by Rex the resident dog who came to play with our dog Louie. We saw Mavis & her husband on arrival and departure but they were always on hand if the need arose. The site fee of £12 per night was a fair one we felt.

We have no hesitation in recommending The Knole for a relaxing stay on the edge of Dartmoor.

 Small but well kept site which is extremely peaceful and with amazing views. There are no toilet/shower facilities but electric hook ups, water etc is provided together with an information hut and well kept bin area.

The owners are welcoming but leave you to it, which is how we like it. This is a working farm and we had a couple of escaped sheep in our field at one point! There are a couple of pubs within short driving distance (the one in Bridestowe has recently been taken over and we found it to be the best one with friendly owners/locals and nice food) and some really nice walks and places of interest nearby. Nearest supermarkets are in Okehampton which has a Waitrose, Lidl and Co-op all in the same place.

For dog walkers, a short walk down the road will bring you to a public footpath which is a pleasant wooded track, ideal for morning walks.

 What a wonderful location with stunning views of Dartmoor. Located on a working farm the site is mostly closely mown grass mainly sloping so levelling is required, there is some level hard standing in the entrance area.

3 double Electric points are all located in a circle of mature trees and encourage pitching all in the same area with caravans jostling for the best view point, as we found when one pitched directly in front of us, this is due to the pitch where you like policy of the owner and some peoples disregard for others.

At £10 a night for a caravan with electric its value for money for its location although charging another £4 a night for a full awning is a bit much we felt.

Facilities consist of a pit with cover for your waste and tap. One fresh water tap in the centre of the site with a shed with information magazines and DVDs and a section with bins in for rubbish and recycling.
