 Please note we have been advised that the campsite has closed, and no longer offers camping, motorhome or caravanning pitches however the camping barn may still be operational. If you know that this situation has changed in the future, please could you let us know. Many thanks

 The site is basically fine. The field is a bit uneven, but it's fine. The toilets were basic but clean - perfect, really. There didn't seem to be any hot water for dishes (but maybe the tap was just broken?)

The thing that really puts me off is that it seems everywhere you look there are signs telling you what you can't do (at least three notices on or near the farmhouse door saying don't come in (ring the bell instead), fires must be out by 10:30, you mustn't leave any children alone at any time because it's a farm & there's a pond - I was told in booking in that I needed to accompany my 10 year old whenever he left the tent for any reason, including going to the toilet).

It just felt unwelcoming, as though campers are an inconvenience that they have to put up with.

Most of the sites I stay at have really friendly owners and rules are presented in a friendly manner - that didn't seem to be the case here. I think I'll give this one a miss next time

 A wonderful farm site in the middle of the moors. Camping is in a field below the farm and next to river and pond. Uneven but some flat spaces, I managed to find space without the need for levelling blocks.

Campfires allowed, wood for sale at farm. Also BBQ food, burgers, Lamb etc.

Toilets, showers, washing up etc by farm house, very clean and adequate. Only downside for me was no chemical disposal facility, but understandable considering wonderful location.

Plenty of walking direct from site. Postbridge has pub, village shop.

 We have been coming here for around ten years, and love it! The site is just a field by a stream, toilets and showers in the farmyard, but what more do you need! Phil and Chris always friendly, and Zak the collie is happy to play football with kids all day long. Wonderful place, and the Warren House Inn a few miles up the road is a lovely old pub.

 Absolutely brilliant site. Showers, toilets really clean. Fabulous and very beautiful location for hiking as soon as you open your tent! Great for children with a river running by for them to have endless fun. Big open spaces to pitch on with firepits. We thought we had found a great campsite already being seasoned outdoor campers. But Runnage Farm outweighed it by far! Owners so helpful and friendly. Will definitely be back ! Thank you to the Owners too. For opening up their land for people to be able to do camping with fire. Really great :-)

 Really lovely site. There's a little stream running down one side so that you fall asleep to the sound of running water. Dartmoor ponies wander off the moor and graze in the field. Sheep come in off the farm in search of grass. You can search for wood in the nearby forest to build and make your own fire by your tent. The farm will sell you sausages and pasties. There is complete peace and quiet. It is the ultimate bucolic heaven! Yes, the facilities are a little on the basic side, but if you want simple camping then this is the place for you.

 Just returned from fabulous camping trip at the lovely runnage farm. We always return here. The owners are always pleasant no matter how many times you bang on the door for freezer blocks/charging etc through out the day. We are happy with facilities, they are basic. You quickly get used to washing up with cold water! but always clean and I have never had to queue up. This campsite is proper camping, open fires, no restrictions on cooking anytime of day, we did cooked breakfast on it, lunch and dinner all week. It is a family run farm so animal noises are a constant and tractors fly by regularly with cows and sheep and wild horses roaming. This suits us and entertains the toddlers! We love it here, looking forward to our next holiday.

 Absolutely fantastic place, we stayed in the bunk house over a very wet august bank holiday.

The owner is lovely and very accommodating and even lent us some board games.

It is in the middle of no where which is just what we wanted, the 9 of us enjoyed the lovely walks over the moores.

Showers and toilets are basic but what do you expect from a campsite! They met our needs.

No mobile phone signal is fabulous!

We ventured in to prince town and tried out the plume pub -also worth a visit!

Would 100% recommend to anyone who wants to escape city life! We returned home today and have already booked to go back for New Year's Eve!

 This is a fabulous site for camping and countryside lovers. The owners are working farmers but give you all the time you need to assist or just pass the time of day, plus offering excellent meat and pasties and more.

The setting is idyllic moorland, walks in all directions plus nearby pubs and shops. The campsite was busy at times but always peaceful, civilised and friendly, with a wide range of nationalities enjoying the evening fires. We even had fabulous weather, but I don't think Dartmoor can guarantee that.

This is Camping as it should be.

We had a really great holiday and will definitely return.

 Runnage Farm Camping Barns and Bunkhouse is a wonderful campsite in the centre of Dartmoor National Park. Surrounded by miles and miles of open countryside, the site is a beacon for walkers, trekkers, Scouts, DOE and campers alike, but big enough to create your own little haven.

There is plenty of space for pitching tents in different fields, two camping barns and a bunkhouse. We were camping in a tent and this review echoes our stay.

The showers, toilets and washing up facilities are good but basic which reflects that this is a working farm not a holiday park. You can have real fires and there is a great pub within walking distance. The nearest town only has a small store, so be prepared to bring all your essentials. Our hosts were most helpful and kind during our stay.

This is a fabulous place to come and unwind in the heart of Dartmoor. Don't forget to look out for Zach the Collie!
