  • Large adults-only park next to Chudleigh Knighton Nature Reserve
  • About 5 minutes' drive from Chudleigh Knighton and Bovey Tracey
  • Walking paths from the site; 10 minutes' drive from Dartmoor
Whether you've decided that your next trip is going to be all about sitting yourself down in stunning surrounds or strolling through them, have either – or both – at the adults-only Oakmoor Touring Park. This quiet and peaceful place set up by a couple of keen campers is in three acres of Devon countryside next to a wooded section of a Wildlife Trust nature reserve. Walks can start off from the site towards the nearby village of Chudleigh Knighton (a 20-minute stroll) and lead through Chudleigh Knighton Heath’s gorse, heather and grassland on the Ant Trail, taking around an hour all in all. To roam further, go forth towards Bovey Heathfield and Little Bradley Ponds nature reserves from the heath on a four and a half-mile hike in lush Devon countryside; the park's also about a five-minute drive from Bovey Tracey, the gateway to Dartmoor National Park, if an especially lengthy amble around the tors is what you're after. And if it’s mainly lazing you're after, resting comes into play on the flat pitches with fresh air and views of grassy meadows all around. You can lie back and rest while waiting for wildlife to appear: the owners have spotted species including deer, wild ducks and rabbits at this pretty park. Of course, it can’t all just be relaxing or rambling… when practicalities need organising, an essentials store is on site and a shop and pub are in Chudleigh Knighton. The park also has spacious showers, a washing-up area and baby changing facilities.

Non-electric grass tent pitch

Liked: We booked last minute and were really happy with our choice. It was our first time camping together and we had a lovely time. The toilet and shower facilities were spotless and the couple that greeted us at reception were really lovely. The campsite was really peaceful and well kept, thank you for a lovely time!

Electric grass and earth pitch

Liked: We liked everything from the moment we arrived to a warm welcome from the owners. The site is beautiful and also beautifully maintained. The toilets and showers were immaculate throughout our stay and no wonder with the effort which is put into keeping them so.

Disliked: There is absolutely nothing to dislike about this fabulous place.

Electric grass and gravel touring pitch

Liked: Lovely clean quiet site in a great spot. Facilities were spotless. Short walk through nature reserve to the village pub which is well worth a visit. Nice walk into Bovey Tracey up quiet country lanes. Just be careful if you want to get the bus back as not all buses go to the village so we had a long wait. In local area The House of marbles is well worth a visit and is free. Camp shop has all the essentials and a few gifty bits. There was a fish and chip van one evening and a coffee van one morning while we were there which was nice.The guys running it are brilliant, friendly and very helpful. We had a few issues while we were there (broken Vans and poorly teeth) and they couldn't have been more helpful. Just sorry we had to cut our stay short.

Electric grass and earth pitch

Liked: Spacious level pitches, clean toilet facilities, very quiet environment

Disliked: Electric hook-ups should be labelled with pitch number as when we arrived ours was in use by adjacent pitch who had to then move their motorhome to be able to connect - they were nice about it but incident made us feel uncomfortable, the following day the same thing happened to a pitch in front of us.

Local attractions

It really is all about the rambles from this site… the traditional Devonshire village of Hennock, sitting 800 feet above the Teign valley, is under 10 minutes’ drive for treks around the Trenchford, Tottiford and Kennick reservoirs (plus plenty of pubs) while Stover Park’s 114 acres of woodland, heathland, grassland, lake and marsh is five minutes south next to a golf course. The traffic-free Stover Trail passes through here and links the historic town of Bovey Tracey with Newton Abbot; if you’re riding a bike, stop off at the cycle-friendly café in the former, which has indoor parking (about a 20-minute journey on two wheels). Also near this spot is the Dartmoor Whisky Distillery if you’re curious about checking out what Devonshire-made booze tastes like. For long journeys on foot or the saddle, The Templar Way starts off at Teigngrace (10 minutes’ drive), coming close to Oakmoor Touring Park and stretching on for around 18 miles towards rocky Hay Tor on Dartmoor.
