If you are after a tranquil, well maintained, uncommercial site - Pick this one.

Rebecca and Tim rescued us at the last minute from having to stay at a rather loud, busy and packed site a few miles away!

As tent campers we prefer a quiet, well maintained site. We were spoilt! Flat pitches, with well mown (and collected) grass, well positioned so no-one is directly overlooked, set overlooking woods and green fields.

The showers are free, hot, and wonderfully clean in modern heated facilities. There's a family shower room, hot washing up, a washing machine, and a hairdryer.

There's no play park, no bar, no entertainment, just space to let the children play, and peace to unwind and ponder. There's excellent waste facilities for vans and motorhomes, and plenty of water taps and hookups.

Our favourite bit (other than the warm but not intrusive hospitality) was the dog walk area, fenced in so our dog could let off some steam. This is now officially our favourite UK campsite.

We stayed here for just one night as it was easily accessible from the A30. What a perfect site. Great location. So well thought out. Well laid out. Facilities were immaculate. The whole site was perfect an absolute credit to the owners and staff. Has to be right up there among the BEST sites we have ever stayed on. Thank you.

It's very clear the site owners are previous caravanners, as they have thought of everything. Lovely clean and spacious wash block. Great secure enclosed dog walking area. The only downside which the owners can't change is it's quite near a noisy road, however we did go when there was no leaves on the trees and bushes which will help to block the road noise.

Unfortunately the weather during our stay was terrible most of the time with very heavy rain and high winds. However good the site, the owners and facilities are it tends to colour your opinions and experiences in a bad light so we would give this site the benefit of the doubt based on other peoples reviews.

Good points - lovely clean, warm shower/toilets,

Spacious grass pitch

Good washing up area & local information

Not so good points - very noisy road especially late night & early morning (5-6am)

No playpark for children

No fence around lake

If we had been in a caravan or motorhome (which are sited further from road!) we would have had a more peaceful and relaxing stay. Although rules ask for quiet after 10pm this was not enforced on our last night, with car arriving well after 10 & shouting etc till early hours!

This site is easy to find and the booking process was quick and efficient. You can't walk to Okehampton (which is a bit rundown) because there is no pavement on the B road and it is a very fast and busy road.


The tent pitches: they are large, level and well-kept.

Cleanliness: the whole site including the shower block and loos and the excellent undercover dishwashing area is very clean.

Dog walking area: this large area is fenced off and well planted with a variety of trees.

Free WIFI with a very strong signal on our pitch

Friendly owners


The showers: whilst they are new, a good size cubicle and all very clean, they operate on a sensor and the water goes off very quickly. If you don't trigger the sensor correctly again, you stand there dripping until you can persuade it to work again. The water pressure was also weak and the temperature of the water and the shower room was not as warm as I would have liked.

The road noise: the site is adjacent to a straight section of the B road. It is very busy in the morning and early evening - it's probably the way many locals go to work. As it is a straight section, some cars and quite a few motorbikes use it as a racetrack. We were in the terraced tent area which is nearest to the road and we occasionally could not even hear what each other said as the noise was so loud! I don't think this would be such a problem if you were in a caravan or motorhome, especially as the pitches for these are further from the road.

Just spent 3 days at the site nice little site clean and tidy, toilet and shower block superb. Just wanted to relax for a few days not so the noise from the main road is not good especially when the bikers go to and from work. The site is ideal for anyone wanting to explore Dartmoor.

Medium sized, well laid out brand new site just outside Okehampton. Great as a base for exploring Exmoor and Dartmoor or as a convenient stopover on your way to Cornwall.

Very friendly owners and nice showers and loos.

The wildlife pond and the fire pit are lovely features.

A fantastic caravan site my wife and I have been to a number of times, beautifully kept pitches with plenty space in between them.

A fantastic dog Walking area and well fenced.

The toilet and shower block is beautifully finished and clean and tidy, in fact you will come to find this at Appledore. All the pitches are well kept and the grass areas beautifully maintained.

Tim and Rebecca the owners of Appledore caravan park are friendly and welcoming and there is nothing they won't do to make sure your holiday is perfect.

We will be coming back again in the future

This is a very friendly clean and tidy site and the grounds and shower toilet block are so well kept and immaculate, and the area is very peaceful with no light pollution at night.

We had a nice hard standing pitch with all the amenities you need including Wi-Fi.

It is a very dog friendly site with a lovely dog walk. The wild life in the area is varied and in abundance, we saw various types of birds including Owl, wood peckers, buzzards and more swallows and house martins you can count. We also saw deer in the next field.

The site is excellent value. That includes the free range eggs which tasted glorious

Sometimes you can hear the idiots racing on the main road to the north.
