Higher Murchington Farm: Pre pitched bell tent

General

  • Quiet and simple field site on a working farm on Dartmoor
  • A five-minute drive to Chagford for pubs and shops, walking trails
  • Fishing 10 mins; kayaking and climbing 25 mins; Haytor Rocks 30 mins

There are no apologies from the team of Higher Murchington Farm about sharing their views with you... views of Dartmoor, that is, stretching scenically all around.

The owners here keep it simple – they’re busy running a farm, for a start – but they welcome visitors (and their well-behaved dogs) to come and share this slice of the wild Devon countryside. On the eight-acre field you’ll have plenty of room on the spacious assigned pitches; campfires are fine here too. Amenities include a private eco toilet and washing-up area for each pitch… and apart from that, nothing between you, the skies and the vast moor below.

It’s a five-minute drive or half an hour’s (very pleasant) stroll over to Chagford, for pubs with hot food, as well as shops for stocking up; head down to the Teign for a picnic or a riverside walk into open countryside. A 15-minute walk out of town (or a 10-minute drive from the site), is Chagford pool, an open-air river fed watering spot where there are yet more spectacular views.

This is an eco-friendly site, where the team tries its utmost to run the site on a low-impact eco basis with solar energy and water from the farm.

    The spacious pitches with it's own sink unit and water supply. Plenty of room between pitches which were blinded off by hazel panels. The shower was a great treat. Dry wood for fire pit is excellent value. Scenery amazing. Can't wait to go again.

Fantastic site, clean, easy and relaxing!18/08/2021

  • Bell tent (private bathroom amenities)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This is by far our favourite campsite that we have been to - a fantastic location with excellent and relaxing views and a massive great and safe field for our young children to play in.
    We rented the bell tent and it was luxurious, far better than taking our own tent and it was warm, cosy, clean and spacious. Each pitch has it's own toilet facilities and outside sink and washing up facilities which made the whole thing really easy and convenient - no long walks to the loo in the night etc. Also, the pitches are far apart so you're not hemmed in together like on some campsites.
    We also had a log fire outside which we used for cooking which was a lot of fun and very satisfying. I would recommend this place in an instant!

    Yet another fantastic time spent here.
    The bell tent was just amazing me and my boys truely do enjoy our time here.
    With no electric and no WIFI it is such a beautiful place to reconnect as a family and enjoy time together.
    Hayley and Vicky as always are fantastic hosts and always make sure you have everything you need.
    We will be back for a fourth year next year.

Local attractions

It’s a walkers’ paradise round here, with Chagford a handy juncture to join in the mighty Two Moors Way, a coast-to-coast extravaganza of some 117 miles (you don’t have to do all of it in one day…). Okehampton (25 minutes’ drive) is a hub for many of the hiking and cycling routes circling the edge of the moor, and a good place to hire a bike if you haven't brought one along.

Fisherfolk are well looked after in this part of Devon as well, with day permits available for fishing brown trout, sea trout and salmon on the Teign and in the peaceful surrounds of the Fernworthy reservoir. If it’s the patter of tiny hooves you’re hankering for, head to Dartmoor's Miniature Pony Centre (15 minutes) for opportunities to meet, greet, groom and ride the lovely little fellers. For those in search of bigger thrills, Adventure Okehampton (25 minutes) has surfing and canoeing on its private lake as well as abseiling and archery, climbing and various high jinks on the high ropes.

For views, don’t miss Haytor Rocks and the paths around them (30 minutes) or the ancient peace of Buckfast Abbey (40 minutes), home to monks since the 11th century.

Must see

  • Castle Drogo (2.4 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (13.5 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (14.8 miles)

National Trust
