General

  • Riverside site in the grounds of a pub-restaurant
  • A couple of minutes’ drive from the edge of Dartmoor National Park
  • A 10-minute drive from Newton Abbot and 30 from Torquay

Want to feel like you’re getting a secluded and peaceful getaway without having to give up being close to other people? At Dartmoor Halfway Inn, a family-friendly site in the grounds of a pub-restaurant 10 minutes’ drive from the town of Newton Abbot in Devon, South West England, you get the best of both worlds.

Two minutes from the edge of Dartmoor National Park, The Halfway Inn is well placed for exploration – you can walk, cycle, ride, canoe or climb your way around the park, travel from scenic village to scenic village, or learn about the history of the area. The site and pub are dog friendly too, so ramblers should feel free to bring their canine companions along for the walk.

On site, kick back by the river Lemon, which passes just behind the campgrounds, or relax in the open green field – kids who aren’t quite ready to sit still for the evening can burn off any residual energy in the on-site playground.

When the whole family is ready for dinner, stroll over to the Halfway Inn for a slap-up meal, then knock back a few beers or a couple of glasses of wine – or juice for the kids – and toddle back to where you’re spending the night less than 200 metres away.

If you’d prefer a change of scenery, there are plenty of other restaurants in Newton Abbot and within 10 minutes’ drive of Halfway Inn.

Nice stopover site. Not enough electricity points.31/07/2021

  • Electric hardstanding and grass pitch (comfort)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Tidy site with nice pub food available but best to book early if you want an inside table.

    Disliked: 

    Only two showers and one toilet in both men’s and ladies. Queues in the morning. Also one of the ladies showers has half the shower door missing. I flooded the building and ended up mopping all the floor after my shower. No mobile signal! The electric supply is a bit iffy too.

  • Liked: 

    I like the way this place is organised. You have your own privacy and a lot of space. Toilets were clean. There’s a laundry room which is a big help if you are staying longer. We had no chance to try their food but the pub looks great.

    Disliked: 

    It is a bit noisy as the field is located right next to the busy road. No internet

  • Liked: 

    Small clean site, behind pub, next to stream (fenced off) and surrounded by hills and greenery. Some road noise but not enough to spoil anything. Good facilities. Friendly staff. Perfect for an overnight stay.

    Disliked: 

    Pub food reasonable although breakfast for a family of 4 came to £40!

Directions


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

You can barely turn a corner in this part of Devon without coming face to face with a stately manor – Bradley, Compton Castle, Greenway, Castle Drogo, Coleton Fishacre, Cockington Court, Torre Abbey and Dartington Hall are all with 45 minutes’ drive, and a visit to the spectacular 16-sided A la Ronde, 35 minutes away, is highly recommended.

Tipplers might like to make the trip to Buckfast Abbey outside Buckfastleigh (10 minutes), though you won’t be able to do tours or tastings at the factory. If the Abbey doesn’t get you steaming, head to the South Devon Railway and climb aboard the vintage train, or abandon alcohol-related puns altogether and head to the Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary.

Fawlty Towers fans will be keen to learn that Torquay is less than 30 minutes away. Although you can no longer visit the real-life hotel behind the comedy, there’s plenty to keep you entertained: follow the Agatha Christie Mile to get a glimpse of some of the spots that inspired the murder mystery maven, dive below the Devon coast in the prehistoric Kents Cavern, or play giant at Babbacombe Model Village.

Must see

  • Buckfast Abbey (4.8 miles)
  • Paignton Zoo Environmental Park (8.8 miles)
  • Living Coasts (9.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Compton Castle (5.9 miles)
  • The Church House (6.1 miles)
