Quarry Lake Camping: Tents on site (photo added by manager on 12/08/2023)

General

  • Well-maintained site in the South Hams, two miles from the coast
  • A 10-minute drive from Dartmouth; half an hour from Dartmoor
  • On a working farm with a country pub a mile away

Quarry Lake Camping has simple but well-maintained pitches on a working Devon sheep farm in the stunning South Hams, with far-reaching views towards the local fishing town of Dartmouth and Slapton Sands.

This peaceful rural site is a top spot for those aiming to get out for walks or bike rides – the South West Coast Path is two miles away (as is Blackpool Sands beach for those who’d rather spend time paddling, swimming or kayaking) and it’s about a half-hour drive to the trails of Dartmoor National Park. As well as those big names, there are plenty of places to stroll closer to home around the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Such outings should give you a bit of a taste of rural life – and there’s more of that around the farm, where you’ll look out over fields of sheep and cows and may well spot a good amount of wildlife (along with resident dog Angus bounding around the place). A country pub is a mile away for dinners and drinks (and a play park for smaller guests), and there are more places to eat 10 minutes’ drive away in Dartmouth – along with shops to pick up bits for your barbecue.

Back on site, guests are provided with portable toilets and mains water for washing up, but it’s worth noting that there’s no drinking water so you’ll want to bring your own along.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

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) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

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).

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

At least one of the party members must be aged 21 or over.

Minimum spacing of 3 metres between pitches.

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

Fires, barbecues and/or firepits will not be permitted in dry, windy and/or hot weather conditions.

    The grass pitch next to our camper had evidently had a tent or awning on it for the few a weeks as was reduced to a flat mud plain so not very pleasant to sit on.

    Great location, very quiet back to basic site - just how we like it. Super clean porta loos & hot water a bonus. Owner super kind and friendly. No restrictions on arrival/ departure and pitch where you like.
    Super location for Dartmoor, the coastal path and night sky watching - the stars are amazing here. Go stay here and enjoy x
    (Take drinking water with you as no standing pipe. The owner is talking about putting a shower in next year though - it didn’t bother us as we filled up out solar shower and showered in the field.
