Mount Pleasant Farm: Pitches on site

General

  • Family-run site on a smallholding with views out over Dartmoor’s tors
  • Just outside the national park, half an hour’s drive from Bude’s beach
  • Animals to meet on site; alpaca trekking trips close by

Deliberating over where to stay in Dartmoor? Make your way to Mount Pleasant Farm, a compact but well-formed site with terrific views across the national park’s tors.

Pull up a pew at one of the picnic benches dotted around the grounds to eye up said hills or take in the vistas as you grill up grub in the barbecue areas. These alfresco cooking spaces are surrounded by an island of grass for the dogs to run off-leash, so you can get them out from under your feet as you whip up a meal.

Speaking of animals, there are plenty of these at the grounds. The farm is home to a smattering of chickens, geese, peacocks, rabbits and sheep, as well as ducks that guests are welcome to feed. Stroll up the road to amble with a troupe of alpacas too (trekking trips with these furry creatures are available).

Set quarter of a mile off the main road, Mount Pleasant Farm – a restful spot circled by woods and bridleways for wandering – is as peaceful as it sounds. For refuelling on return from your hikes, pick up food and drinks at a village shop under 10 minutes’ drive away in Halwill and keep everything cool in the shared fridge on base.

For meals out, a local pub is around the same distance, plus plenty of eateries are in Bude, half an hour’s drive away and your gateway to gorgeous beaches on the north Devon coast.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Your dog must be tattooed or microchipped.

Bookings must not consist of more than 2 different households.

Onsite entertainment will not be offered due to restrictions imposed by the coronavirus outbreak.

Minimum spacing of 2 metres between pitches.

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

    The owners Trish & Paul & their daughter Michelle were so accommodating and friendly, they even made us a cup of tea on arrival & offered to help where they could ☺️
    Trish offered to bake my daughter a cake for her 7th birthday & bought her a gift which she was so pleased with, really going above & beyond for their guests. We also had a 3 yr old and 1.5yr old who loved the animals and safe space to roam freely & play! Clean facilities everyday, fire pit, bbq, shared fridge & kettle all great extras in a lovely location. Thank you for a wonderful stay at your home in Mount Pleasant Farm

    Our hosts were helpful, friendly and kind.
    It's a lovely family run site.
    The grass was well kept and a flat pirch. Plenty for kids to do with chickens, ducks, geese, rabbits and peacocks. Our kids loved waking up to help collect the eggs in the morning. The stars were beautiful and we heard a couple of owls one night.
    The facilities were clean even in bad weather and it was great having comforts like hot showers, access to fridge and kettle.
    It is in a good location for Okehampton and the Moor. Lovely library in Okehampton to shelter from the rain and free fun for kids. We borrowed an OS map of Dartmoor from it to help us find the best wild swimming spots.

    This is the third year staying here and I personally hope it never changes.
    A very peaceful and quiet site the owners/Manager were extremely welcoming and friendly and the facilities more than adequate for customers.
    There are numerous animals for youngster to visit and help feed. Rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese (beware The Bite) and two Peacocks plus an number of dogs.

    Wow. What can I say, Paul and Trish were amazing from the moment we arrived, so welcoming and helpful. Paul gave us a tour of the site and pointed out the very handy electric kettle! A cuppa was so needed after a busy day exploring and it was nice not to have to wait for the gas in our van!

    We travelled with our 5 year old son who is animal mad, Paul took the time to walk him round all of the animals and then invited him to meet a baby duckling just 2 days old. Our son also helped collect the eggs and feed the animals the next morning. The dogs on site are ever so friendly and very well behaved. Trish kindly gave our son some leftover bread to feed the ducks the next morning which he loved.

    The campsite itself is lovely! We stayed on the hard standing pitch, which was next to a grassy area with picnic benches and communal bbqs which we enjoyed. Our son played with the multitude of garden games provided which gave us both some time to cook and organise dinner.

    The bathroom facilities are excellent, spotlessly clean and the family shower room is ideal. The shower is hot and powerful, exactly what we all needed after a long day. We all slept so well, the site is peaceful and relaxing.

    Can’t wait to book again, highly recommend. Our favourite campsite we’ve ever visited.

WOW! thank you for such an amazing heartfelt review. It was lovely meeting you and your family.

All hands on deck when it comes to the animals is always greatly appreciated and your son is a tribute to you.

Welcome anytime you'd like to revisit.

    The facilities were really good, everything was clean and tidy. The family bathroom is a really good idea and useful for families with young children. The owners could not of been more helpful and approachable. The bonus of a fridge and freezer to use was fab and access plug sockets for charging devices was a real bonus. There are purpose built barbecues as well. Would definitely go again, the kids had a fabulous time and the site is in a good central position, so easy to visit different areas of Devon and Cornwall. 10/10

Directions

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Fan of fishing? Set off for the lush lakes at Anglers Paradise. Prefer archery? Hit the bullseye at the Arms of Old centre (both 10 minutes’ drive). Or how about hiking? Head to Roadford Reservoir (15 minutes), the largest freshwater area in England's south west, for strolls and watersports. Bikes? Off to the traffic-free Tarka Trail with you (pick it up 10 minutes away in Okehampton).

For town times, there’s Launceston (25 minutes), the ancient capital of Cornwall with its castle and a steam railway, as well as Tavistock (half an hour), a canalside ancient stannary settlement that claims to be the home of the cream tea.

Try this traditional Devon dessert then bound over to Bude for swims at the sea pool followed by sunbathing in front of the pastel-coloured beach huts (half an hour). Thrill-seekers could organise a surfing lesson on one of the beaches – a top pick is the sandy Summerleaze – or stay dry while dashing around the dodgems at Dingles Fairground Heritage Centre (20 minutes).

Keep the fun times going for the kids with outings to The BIG Sheep and The Milky Way Adventure Park – both 45 minutes' drive away and fab for family days out. Grownups may prefer the more leisurely pleasures of RHS Rosemoor and Dartington Crystal (both half an hour).

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (13.2 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (16.0 miles)
