 What a lovely friendly site, very clean and quiet, lovely wardens, clean shower and loo block, delightful little shop.

Good information about walks, dog friendly, good facilities.

Only downside was that we were right by dog field and our dogs barker every time anyone went past, next time will request different site. X

 Booked to spend time with family including our young grandchildren who have a trailer tent. Not our usual holiday as we now tend to use adults only sites.

The site is well maintained and laid out. We opted for a fully serviced pitch which was very good and worth paying for. Both sets of wardens were very efficient, friendly and hard working. We had issues with WiFi which were quickly dealt with.

Liked Tavistock very much and visited on more than one occasion. The market is worth a browse. Before the family arrived, we had an enjoyable visit to The Garden House.

One of the best we have seen this year.

 This was a first foray into the West Country, Devon and Cornwall.

We were greeted by the site staff who all I can say about is nothing is a problem, everything can be sorted out and it was.

The pitches are generous and well positioned. We had a fantastic view of Dartmoor.

The shop was well stocked and on one occasion one of the staff gave us some of their own items. We can not think of any single point which disappointed us.

A great site for all we would recommend to anyone. A great place to explore both counties from. The Westies

 We have frequented this site for some seven years. We love it so much weíve now taken a seasonal pitch.

The site is well maintained, utility areas spotlessly clean.

The area is quiet and very peaceful. Dogs are welcomed and have the perimeter of a lovely big field to be walked round on-lead.

Ample dog waste bins are included en route. With nest boxes and feeders dotted about the site is good for watching the antics of a variety of birds and fledglings.

A small shop at the site entrance holds the basics and a variety of epicurean treats including Devonshire steak, burgers, ice cream and fine wines.

The owners and staff provide sterling service and could not be more accommodating.

Great value all round.

 I canít recommend this site enough it is fantastic. A great location for access to the Moors, the Granite Way for walking and cycling and to various local attractions.

The wardens were kind, welcoming and really helpful. There is a small shop on site and the facilities were clean and the grounds well maintained.

There are several local pubs serving good food that are walking distance from the site.

We have already booked to return! Access from the A30 is easy just a few narrow spots as you drop into Lydford village but visibility ahead is good so if there is oncoming traffic it is not a problem.

 We have used this site for years, from its CCC days to now being affiliated with CMHC. The facilities are now maintained to a high standard and have central heating.

Pitch prices do reflect this but it was worth paying the extra to feel safe in these Covid conscious days.

We do gripe at paying extra for the dog, they used not to charge. The wifi is excellent and only £5 for 7 days connection for up to 2 devices.

The friendly wardens go out of their way to help, we had trouble levelling our van and had assistance from the warden which was much appreciated.

A variety of pitches to suit all units. A dog walk is kept mown shorter than the surrounding grass. The dog walk is round the perimeter of the field with grass pitches and has lovely views of Dartmoor from the highest spot with benches to sit and admire the countryside.

Lots of local walks and a bus from the village to Tavistock or Okehampton.

Ideal peaceful location for all types of units.

 Just returned from our second super stay at Lydford. We had a problem with our Santa Fe on the way down as an engine warning light came on! When we mentioned it to Steve, the warden, he very kindly said that he had an ODB2 scanner and this then enabled the fault to be cleared. Luckily itís due to go in for service and once re-set the warning light has not returned. Thank you Steve.

Our pitch was a large grass fully serviced one with plenty of room for awning and car to be parked on the pitch. The dog walk was so convenient as it circumvents the site and was just behind our caravan. The facilities were spotless and operated on a tag system whereby there were 3 for toilets and 2 for showers. We only used the toilets as we prefer to shower in the caravan.

The site was really quiet which suited us very well and we walked to the local pub, castle Inn, on 2 occasions and were very impressed by their Covid arrangements and their new awning covering the reserved tables. No need to book for the garden tables and all ordering is done via the app which worked really well for us.

I have submitted a previous review on this site and have nothing to add other than we are looking forward to our next visit.

 This was our first time at Lydford, and we will definitely be back. The site is incredbly clean and well presented, and very well run, and good Covid precautions in place.

The wardens were extremley friendly and helpful, with nothing being too much trouble.

Super quiet site, and amazingly dark at night, given beautiful views of the stars. The camping field (Dart field) was well laid out, and we didn't feel cramped.

This is a very dog friendly site, with a path around the entire perimeter for on-lead walking. There's a field nearby for off lead exercise too.

Good proximity to the moor, a lovely pub and some wonderful walks.

I would highly recommend this site - it is a super find.

Reviewer: Blueroan 3 reviews from this member

 Visited several times with our trailer tent. Hard to beat this site - the back field gives wonderful views of the moor.

The village of Lydford itself is full of interest, and its pub The castle means that you can walk there for dinner and a drink and walk back to your pitch.

Lots of footpaths and good walking from the site, so you can have a holiday from your car if you wish.

The two front fields are entirely hard-standing, with some seasonal pitches so some vans are unoccupied. The back field "Lyd field" has some hook-up pitches on the flat, although these don't have a view of the moor.

The field rises up, opening out to give lots of pitches without electric and this is where the tent-dwellers pitch. The very helpful wardens have put us halfway up the back field sometimes, lending us an electric ext lead.

However, note that trailer tents aren't allowed at the top of the field owing to planning rules - they must not be visible from the moor!

Site is tucked away at back of village, has a feel-good factor and is affiliated to Caravan Club. Perhaps not the best for young children, as no play area, but otherwise full marks. Warmly recommended.

 Our first visit to this site and wow what a find. The site was easy to find and no problems with access as we have a long caravan.

We were greeted by the lady warden who walked us to our fully serviced pitch which had a hard standing and was large enough for us to have our air awning up + canopy and park the car in front.

We did not need to pay extra for wifi as our own phones seem to get a good signal plus the TV reception was good.

The Covid rules regarding the toilet block worked well, but it did mean that only 3 people could be using this at one time via a system of tabs outside the block. This meant that if there were 3 people showering, then no-one could use the toilets and on a couple of occasions a small queue happened. This was not a problem for us as we had our own facilities, but for those camping it could have proved rather difficult.

We found the site to be very quiet at night, which is just what we wanted. We have 2 dogs and there is a good dog walk with plenty of bins provided.

We noticed that the recycling and rubbish bins were emptied daily so there was no build up.

We did eat out once at the local castle Inn pub and were given a warm welcome. We were impressed by their Covid arrangements. We did not eat inside but opted for their lovely beer garden and were able to order our food via an app which turned up very promptly & was delicious.

Finally, for us this site is a definite one to return to, although we think it may not suit all families as there is no play area.
