A very warm welcome to Dartmoor Caravan and Camping, based in the heart of the beautiful Dartmoor National Park in the Devon countryside.
Our 35-acre farm is surrounded by streams, rivers and countryside. We have large ponds for fishing available on site.
The National Park is the largest and wildest area of open country in southern England and is full of wildlife, especially deer and pheasants.
- Dishwashing area and laundry room
- Carp and trout fishing
- Toilet and shower block with disability access
- Chemical disposal
The university and cathedral city of Exeter is 14 miles away, with its shops, many restaurants and river trips. It also has plenty of underground medieval passages built beneath the city centre dating back to the fourteenth century.
Castle Drogo is close by with dramatic views over Dartmoor and great for a family day out. Crealy Adventure Park is recommended.
For the energetic guests there is Go Ape! and many cycle paths at Haldon Forest, as well as Dartmoor National Park with countryside for riding or walking.
Dartmoor also has a variety of cycle routes, both on and off-road, as well as horse riding, climbing, letterboxing, geocaching or kayaking.
The Dartmoor landscape has heather-clad moorland, wide open landscapes, rivers and stone tors to explore as well as valleys, bogs, wetland, waterfalls, forests and lonely ruins.
There are many National Trust properties within a short drive and the delightful village of Drewsteignton is just over a mile away.
Cheriton Bishop is four miles away and Whiddon Down two miles away. A shop and pub are one mile away.

From the manager...
Although we try to make your stay a happy one, we do not supply accomadation ie tents , sleeping bags , beds, or other utensils, so when people come un- prepared and have no idea what camping is about, and that we are a small low key site, we reccomend that you research before , as it is different from queing to see wimbledon .
nice place to stay 14 Aug 2013

Whilst we try to please, there are always people who want something for nothing. i.e free fishing catch a trout and barbecue for free and have a camp fire with wood supplied or foraged for free!! Wake up and be happy ! poor kids they must of suffered !

From the M5, take the exit onto the A30. Turn off the A30 at Whidden Down. Take the first right at the flyover. Turn immediately left (do not go back onto motorway). After approximately 1.5 miles, turn right at a white sign for Drewsteignton. Continue down to the bottom of the hill, you'll see a stone wall on your right-hand side, do not turn here. Follow to the end and you'll see a five-bar gate at the entrance to the farm.
