Brilliant site for visiting Dartmoor and the surrounding area. The wardens are extremely helpful and friendly and are more than happy to help out with places to visit, walks, etc.

We had a lovely hard standing in the first part of the site. Shower block is clean and warm with more than enough showers, etc for the amount of people on site.

This is a quiet site which is ideal if you like to get up early, out walking and then not too late to bed.

Local pubs within walking distance which serves great meals. We went to the castle Inn and the food was amazing - just donít forget your torch if eating in the evening when it is dark as there are no street lights in Lydford village.

The Granite Way is about 10-15 minutes walk from the site allowing lovely off road walks into Okehampton.

Dartmoor is very close by to explore, and the town of Tavistock is worth a visit. Great site for those with dogs as there is a small dog walk on site with a larger field nearby.

We have visited this site a few times and will definitely be going back.

Very clean and well looked after, friendly and accommodating staff, good clean toilet and shower block, mainly hard standings but personally prefer a grass pitch which was available on one of the three fields.

A quiet site where one could unwind and only a short 5-10 min walk from the local pub which served nice food and drink. Went to this site in 2018 as well and enjoyed it so much returned again this year and would definitely return.

Handy for Dartmoor and with its central location both coasts. On summer Sundays four trains run a return service to Exeter and just the other side of Tavistock, a lovely town, a train runs a regular service to Plymouth both trains quite inexpensive and lovely journeys.

We were given a very friendly and helpful welcome by the owners- which even extended to photocopied maps and advice on walking routes.

We had an absolutely level pitch for our motorhome and facilities were very clean and well managed. No charge for showers.

Near to a great pub - castle Inn - with morris dancing displays in the street outside the pub for local entertainment.

Thank you - will come again sometime.

We camped here as part of a cycle tour from Lands End to Glastonbury. The site is very clean and well run and has beautiful views. We were here whilst huge gales raged and the wardens were helpful in letting us move to a more sheltered spot. Despite the wind damage and a short electric cut they managed to keep everything going and tidied up all the damage.

The shop was useful and the site is on the edge of the village - with a pub and bus stop nearby.

An excellent place to stay if exploring the west of Dartmoor or further afield.

A good site mainly hard standing pitches, warden takes you to the pitch on arrival. Wardens very friendly and helpful. Wc/Sh block was kept clean, felt it was a bit dated and needs bringing up to todays standards.

Usual service points dotted around the site.

A quiet site on the west side of Dartmoor easy access to walks or a drive out over Dartmoor. Lydford Gorge is a short walk from the site through a very lovely village, we did not visit the gorge as we were told it is quite expensive to gain entrance.

A really great pub in the village served good food and a good pint.

A very pleasant site in a lovely location. Very well run with very friendly and helpful staff.

The site excellently located for trips around Dartmoor. With a few pubs with in walking distance worth the visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay

Thank you

A lovely quiet relaxing site with basic clean facilities. Some trees for shade. Electric hookups are fine. The site warden was very helpful too. Lydford Gorge is close and a must do with its 30 meter waterfall. Take your walking boots. We ate at the local pub which is next to a 13th Century prison/courthouse and a short easy walk from the campsite.

Would certainly stay here again

What a relaxing site - the wardens are very pleasant and helpful and the facilities, whilst basic are clean and well maintained.

Hadn't realised when booking the site that dogs had to be on lead whilst on the dog walk, had I known this I probably wouldn't have booked (we have 3 labradors who need a good run around ! ). We were directed to a recreational field a short distance up the road for off lead exercise, and luckily it was quiet so the dogs could stretch their legs, not sure if it had been busier whether this would be possible.

The 'town' of Lydford is really a village with one pub and not too much else. Had a wander around the castle which was interesting and a little eerie, given its history as a prison. Lydford Gorge is also within walking distance although down quite a steep hill.

Booked three nights wish I had booked longer, great site, very helpful staff and great facilities. We had fourteen nights booked in Cornwall so had to move on but would certainly go again but for longer.

We arrived to a very nice welcome from very friendly helpful staff. We were offered several pitches to chose from and felt very lucky to set up on our eventual choice with superb views over the Dartmoor tors. The site is immaculate, some pitches are small but if you are a motor home not requiring space for a fixed awning it is fine. I have to agree with a previous reviewer that the shower block can be a bit nippy and I found the shower temperature erratic but I couldn't fault the cleanliness. We enjoyed walking Lydford Gorge and visiting Morwellham Quay and general walking on Dartmoor. Have to reiterate how nice the staff are.
