 Really great site. We were welcomed on arrival and led immediately to our pitch.

The wardens were really friendly throughout our stay, opening and closing the barrier.

We loved the flexibility as we asked for a late leave and were offered a very reasonable extra charge.

The toilets and showers were clean.

My single (very small) gripe was the push button on the shower in the gents was quite quick to shut off.

All in all a very nice and welcoming site.

 Booked on website for “small hardstanding” pitch, perfect for a campervan. Very efficient check in; they saw us approach the gate and led us straight to our allocated pitch. We later saw their planning board with arrivals all listed and suggested pitches.

2 main areas with hardstanding pitches (various sizes) and some grass for tents. Additional terraced field with some hookups and space for tents.

One facilities block, recently extended with new wash-up (3 or 4 large sinks) and info room. Toilets and showers spacious and always clean. Only gripe is push-button showers. Otherwise very good.

Efficient warden team of two couples, with good local knowledge and walk sheets available.

A few hundred yards from village centre, with bus routes and walking from the door.

A lovely stay with good facilities and staff. Would recommend.

 We've just come home from a fantastic 3 nights staying at Lydford.

Having previously stayed here we knew what to expect but it's got better!

Wonderful welcome from the assistant wardens, they could not have been nicer. Had lots of interaction with the main wardens too and again they were brilliant. All 4 of them are a credit to both the campsite and the CAMC.

Lovely hardstanding pitch close to everything we needed, water, waste, bins, recycling, etc.

Had the sun literally all day, and also had trees at the rear of the pitch for shade so literally perfect.

New (to us) facilities block were spotless at all times.

The dog walk (even though we no longer have a dog) is stunning, just for the views of Dartmoor alone.

Easy walk into the village. Castle Inn is lovely, but was constantly busy when we visited so only had drinks. Also food menu looked expensive! The gorge is a short walk (downhill) from the pub too and worth a visit for the 3 mile riverside walk to the waterfall (even though we'd not had a lot of rain).

The Granite Way cycle path runs from the village down into Okehampton with the Pump & Pedal worth a coffee stop on the way.

There are buses from the village to both Okehampton and Tavistock although we didn't use them as we just walked and biked all weekend.

As this site is only a 45 minute drive from home for us we hope to be regulars!

One word sums it up. PERFECT.

 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 we’ve 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 can’t 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.
