- Family site in Dartmoor National Park
- Views of the Teign Valley
- Two-minute walk from a 16th-century pub
'Feral children are welcome,' say the amicable owners of Hennock Hideaways near Devon's Bovey Tracey – and so this should be a site of happy days for their well-behaved grownups too. (Dogs that can behave around livestock are most welcome here as well.)
While the kids are doing endless and happily tiring laps around the Hennock camping field, the big folk can get on with what's important in life, such as sparking up a campfire then cheerfully considering where to visit next on their Devon hol: Hennock Hideways is just inside Dartmoor National Park, about seven miles from the coast and less than 10 miles from Dawlish. Sitting back with a beer and submerging oneself in the Teign Valley views might be a considerably clever option from here too.
The site has basic facilities including four main toilets, two hot showers and a washing-up area. Free tea and coffee is available at the Tea Shed and essentials can be picked up at the small on-site shop.
The family-friendly atmosphere, Devon ciders, real ales, wine and well-priced pub food of the local pub, 16th-century freehouse the Palk Arms, are a two-minute walk away; cooked breakfasts are often available here too.
(Hennock can't take tourers or large motorhomes because of its secluded location and narrow lanes; please also be careful with wide vehicles and sports cars when approaching the site.)

Hennock Hideaways is only two miles from the A38 so has easy access to many Devon attractions inland and down towards the south coast. (Feel free to tackle the north Devon coast too: it's less than two hours away.)
Very close by, a local park is in Hennock village and three reservoirs are within a mile or two, one of which is a trout fly fishery. Pike fishing and boat hire are also available.
Two miles away is Bovey Tracey with shops, a few more pubs, takeaways and a craft centre along with a pretty park with walks by the River Teign.
And talking of walks... the letterboxing, hikes and tor-totor walks of Dartmoor are very close to base; small sorts heading here can also ride Dartmoor ponies.
The south Devon coast of seaside town Teignmouth is about seven miles away: follow the coastal road from here to Torbay and then Brixham, where you can see the Hennock Hideaways' own fishing trawler the Katy Jane.
