General

  • Working farm site on the southern edge of Dartmoor
  • A range of accommodation, all with parking alongside
  • Dogs on leads welcome and small campfires allowed

Kayakers, canoeists, families, couples and groups have all been known to bunk down at the friendly Harford Bunkhouse and Camping, a working farm on the southern edge of Dartmoor where the main sounds you’ll hear are the site animals – not a baaaaad sound to wake up to…

Harford is right on Dartmoor, with moor than enough stuff in the area for all ages and inclinations, including poking around tiny traditional villages, farm sites and zoos, old houses and ancient castles, and active options like watersports, climbing, hiking and biking. And hacking: nearby Ivybridge has a couple of riding schools for group and private lessons, and there are miles of bridleways, old byways and moorland routes around Dartmoor.

The site is a short distance from the river and a mile and a half from the old town of Ivybridge with several pubs, Tesco and the rated Riverbank restaurant in the Glanvilles Mill shopping centre. It welcomes dogs (on leads at all times, please) and allows small campfires – although fires (and barbecues) are at the owners’ discretion, so please ask before you spark one up.

    The location and the fact there weren’t too many people. Good size field but the majority is on a hill so you wouldn’t want to pitch on it.

Beautiful location ideally suited for visits to Dartmoor and Plymouth. …02/09/2019

Reviewer's country: United KingdomJason L.Confirmed

  • Barn #5 2 bedroom cottage / chalet / bungalow
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful location ideally suited for visits to Dartmoor and Plymouth. The barn we stayed in was clean and met our needs perfectly. A nice touch was the additional animals in the vicinity including pigs! No food waste for us - and the kiddies found it real fun feeding them!

    Disliked: 

    The road up from Ivybridge and particularly the farm was narrow - nothing anyone can do about it and luckily we never met another vehicle coming in the opposite direction. The shower could do with a rethink! Pressure was pretty low and if others using water this is reduced even less and not particularly hot!

Lovely site with a wild feel but great facilities31/08/2019

  • Bell tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful location on edge of Dartmoor, great facilities (lovely hot showers, fridge and freezer, washing up sinks, covered communal cooking area, proper recycling facilities), feeding our leftovers to the pigs, cosy, well-equipped, sensibly priced bell tent. We really enjoyed our three-night stay, the stars at night were fantastic,

    Disliked: 

    V minor points but the two bell tents are quite close together, not a problem for us this time as the other one was empty. Also the camping field is quite sloping so if it’s busy it could be hard to find a flat pitch. No fire pits to hire, or camp fire allowed in communal cooking area, though there are brick BBQ areas around the site. I’ve scored it 3 for child friendliness as there was quite a it of animal poo around and the showers only had one very hot setting, it was fine for us with ages 4 and 7, but might have it’s challenges if you had eg a toddler and a baby. But I’m sure you’d make it work if you wanted to!

Directions


Green Travel Plan: the site offers a free pickup service from public transport in the nearby town of Ivybridge.

From the A38 at Westover Wood near Ivybridge, take the B3213 and follow the road to Harford Moorgate. Keep going on this road past Lukesland House for approximately half a mile and then turn right at the Harford Bunkhouse sign.

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

As well as all the hiking, seeing the Dartmoor ponies is also a must: you’ll spot them all over the moors even if driving, but if you or the kids want to get up close, pony treks are available from several companies, and the Original Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhamstead gives kids the chance to take a better look (double check opening times before you book as they have seasonal opening).

Also nearby for mini naturalists is the Dartmoor Zoological Park, subject of the book and film We Bought a Zoo and housing big cats, monkeys, snakes and plenty more from around the globe; and the National Marine Aquarium less than ten miles away in Plymouth.

Three top walking trails are within a couple of miles of Harford Bunkhouse: the Erme Valley Trail, the Erme-Plym Trail and the Two Moors coast to coast Way from Ivybridge on the south coast to Lynmouth, Exmoor on the north. This in turn connects at various places to other long-distance paths including the Tarka Trail, the South West Coast Path and the Dartmoor Way.

Walking too much faff? Cast off peacefully with the fishing opps in the area, from guided fly fishing trips on Dartmoor to fishing for salmon and trout on the River Erme.
