  • Spectacular Dartmoor views from glamping tents on a Devon hilltop
  • Edging Dartmoor National Park and a 40-minute drive from Torbay beach
  • Walking and tennis from the site; riding, golf, pubs and shops nearby
Glebe Camping is located on a Devon hilltop with spectacular views across Dartmoor. This secluded camping field is a fab base for active families and walkers (not forgetting their canine pals), with many a good hike from the site, a public tennis court in the next field, and a golf course 15 minutes’ drive away. You won’t have a problem amusing the kids either; they can climb aboard a mini-train to chug around Paignton Zoo Environmental Park, or scare themselves on the thrill rides at Crealy Theme Park and Resort (both 40 minutes). Of course the south-coast beaches around Torbay and Paignton are less than 45 minutes away, for good, clean fun swimming in the sea and all sorts of watersports. And pony-mad youngsters, guess what – there’s a riding school within 20 minutes, from where you can trek up onto the moors. Speaking of Dartmoor – the National Park Visitor Centre, where you can get all sorts of info on where to walk and what to see in the park, is in Postbridge (30 minutes), where you can also see an ancient clapper bridge across the East Dart river. It’s easy to keep everyone fed and watered too; you can barbecue on site – there’s a handy store for picking up basics in Ilsington (five minutes) and bigger supermarkets in Newton Abbot (20 minutes), or you can let someone else do the work and head out to the local pubs and restaurants.

Bell tent

Liked: The campsite was situated on top of a hill overlooking some stunning views, we loved to watch the sun go down over the landscape every evening. Plenty of space for children to play and run around the field which was a god send to tire them out! There is a friendly pub with good food between 5-10 minutes walk down the road. There were plenty of beaches to choose from, we chose Paignton and Dawlish which were 30-40 minutes drive away from the site, and only around 10 minutes driving to be driving in Dartmoor. The yurt was clean and spacious, bed very comfortable, and shower and toilet facilities clean and comfortable. Lots of equipment left for you if you don't have your own such as cooking equipment and dining equipment and a gas stove etc. Overall just such a quiet and peaceful place to get away from it all!
