 The campsite was perfect for what we needed for a night on Dartmoor; clean, spacious, well kept and quiet. It's perfectly situated for hikes straight from your tent and the pub food was excellent. We were even given a jug of milk for tea the next morning having (stupidly) forgotten to bring our own.

A hot shower in the morning set you up for the day and at £9/night, it's great value.

Covid wise, there were enough tables to eat outside and seemed to be on top of govt guidelines in terms of people numbers in various parts of the pub.

 Easy to find, central location and a sight for sore eyes on a very cold and rainy day!

Plenty of space, with good facilities - friendly staff and good food.

Couldn’t have asked for more and we will be back - thank you!

 What a fantastic site. The facilities were ample for washing and cleaning.

The staff were so friendly and helpful that you felt welcome straight away.

The breakfast was very hearty and reasonably priced and the pub grub was exceptional especially the pies.

Can't wait to go back

 We stayed in the new bunkhouse over the weekend, but this review is also the same for the campsite as I had a wander around the field and the facilities for camping too.

Check in was at the bar and was quick and efficient and they gave us all the door access codes and the option to purchase breakfast tokens for £5 each.

The new bunkhouse is clean, well thought out and had 4 rooms each with two bunks in it. They provide the sheets and use of the toilets and showers is included. There is also a communal room with tables and chairs and full kitchen facilities. The new bunkhouse was £24 per person, per night. The beds were comfortable for a couple of nights and the facilities were clean, tidy and well maintained.

The camping field is large, although on a slight slope, but there were flat spots all around it. There is also a separate area for motorhomes / campervans. The facilities for the campers were clean, well looked after and would certainly do the job very well. There is also a washing up area.

The pub itself is very popular with locals and the tourists and we had to reserve tables on both nights to ensure we got a space. The choice of drinks is very good and the prices are very reasonable. Their a good menu here with daily specials and it is reasonably priced and all cooked fresh to order, so was piping hot and delicious.

We had a full English on both days and for £5 we got a huge spread and it was fresh and very tasty.

The site is right in the centre of Princetown with the visitor centre across the road, a cafe and shops for general supplies. There is a brewery around the corner and of course the area has all of Dartmoor on offer with walks and cycling, and activities plentiful.

Dartmouth is around an hours drive away as are other coastal towns.

I would definitely stay here again and will return in the tent or campervan in the future.

 Great location for walkers and cyclists, this site is at the back of the pub with direct access onto Dartmoor.

There is a fairly large field for tents and some hardstanding for campervans or the carpark.

The shower blocks are warm and clean. Good value for money at £7 pp all year round, and a bargain £5 breakfast too.

Pub has a large food menu, dogs and children are very welcome. Small play area for kids near the pub.

 Great site for seeing the sites around princetown. Big field for tents and motorhomes can park on hardstanding in the carpark. Free showers and elsan point all for £7 each per night.

Will be returning. Food at the pub is also excellent.

The local area has lots of places to visit and we were able to take our dog in to the museum at the prison.

In fact the whole area is very dog friendly and allow them in all the pubs and cafes.

Reviewer: Catswhiskers 1 review from this member

 Although we haven't used this site for 2 years I have been a regular visitor here for many years. I was therefore, rather surprised at the negativity of some of the reviews. Yes the site is very basic but for someone who doesn't mind roughing it in the true style of camping the site is very good. It caters specifically for outdoor activity people so yes, one can expect to see training groups, school groups etc etc. The people who use this site are away walking etc for the whole day and creature comforts are not high on their list of priorities. If a more comfortable style of camping is preferred then it may be advisable to choose an alternative site - of which there are many to choose from.

I would agree that the toilet and shower facilities do require a re-vamp as I noticed last time I was there they were looking decidedly worse for wear since their last re-fit.

The staff and locals are friendly and helpful. Dogs are welcomed and this is one of the attractions of the site as many walkers bring their dogs with them. The pub even provides special doggy treats (for a small fee)! The pub grub is good and has a varied menu. Given the quality of the food provided it is reasonably priced (or was last time I was there).

The Visitor centre accross from the pub is well worth a visit as is the prison museum which gives an excellent history of the prison through the years and is extremely interesting and popular with tourists.

The Ten Tors cafe next to the pub offers food and refreshments and their breakfasts are very reasonably priced and filling. There is a small village shop which provides basic provisions but a supermarket is only a short drive away in Tavistock.

The site is well situated for walks directly from the campsite or if you wish you can drive a short distance and be spoilt for choice as to where you want to walk.

A word of warning - the site and Dartmoor are high up and the weather is unpredictable. Ensure you are wearing suitable clothing and footwear and make sure you carry maps and preferably a compass if you intend walking away from car parks and well worn tracks.

At £7 per night per person you will be hard pressed to find anything cheaper in the area although I notice this figure has gone up from £5. 50 2 years ago.

We have just replaced our tent and are going to be using this site twice this year so will probably be able to give a more up to date review later in the year.

 A nice cheap campsite, good for dogs and with excellent shower and toilet facilities. This is quite a small campsite so be aware that you may need to book. At weekends it is swamped with walkers and d of e or ten tours users but they were all quiet.

Bare in mind with this campsite that you can not take your car onto the field, which limits how much stuff you can take or in our case, means you have to walk backwards and forwards about twenty times. The site is right next to the moors and there is plenty of walking around this pretty village without getting in the car.

The site is right in the centre behind the pub which is quiet and nice to have a drink in after a long walk. I have to say the food is not great at this pub but that maybe personal preference. However the bar staff were very friendly and they have a dog menu (cold cuts from the carvery for £1. 20) which my dog was extremely happy about.

Toilets were never full when I was there and there was always toilet roll. Yes they are metal so do get a bit damp with condensation but that's no big deal. The best bit was the quality of the showers which are free, powerful and plenty warm enough. The other big plus for us (particularly as it was very chilly at night when we were there is the fact the toilets seem to have heating in them.

Price wise its cheap and cheerful, we paid £6. 95 pp pn and the dog was free. They have a cash machine in the pub but there is a charge for using it. Nearest large supermarket was Morrisons and was about fifteen minutes drive away.

Overall a great campsite, in a great location to explore Devon. There is the prison in Princetown which I believe you can visit the museum off but we never got that far and also I think you can rent bikes from the nearby tourist information place.
