General

  • Well-maintained and popular park two miles from Okehampton
  • Coarse fishing lake and thousands of recently planted trees and hedges
  • Shower and toilet block with underfloor heating and accessible area

Come and meet Fester… this clever pooch, along with resident owners Tim and Rebecca, runs award-winning Appledore Park two miles from Okehampton near the north Devon coast. And here's where you'll also find over 4,500 recently planted trees and hedges (so far), spankingly clean facilities and so many little extra touches you might wonder if Tim and Rebecca (and Fester) ran campsites in a previous life: ‘awesome’, ‘top notch’ and ‘knocked our socks off’ are just a few of the accolades Appledore has received from grateful guests.

Tim, Rebecca and the dog have eight acres of site land at award-winning Appledore, all with sweet views of the Devon countryside and the park’s surrounding farmland, and landscaped to hold spacious pitches. Up to three well-behaved dogs are allowed per pitch, and a dedicated and fenced dog walking area has been set aside among the tree plantation.

If you’re arriving late, there’s a special late arrivals area with hook-up and water so you can get settled quickly (cuppa). To this smart idea the team have added free wifi throughout, a dishwashing and veg prep area, and a room with charging points and info on the surrounding area. The amenities block has underfloor heating, private cubicles and an accessible area for disabled guests – and are so well maintained they've won a Loo of the Year award.

Finally, fancy some fishing? Appledore Park has its own coarse fishing lake for guests and you can also cast off from the quay at Appledore village, take a boat out to the sea (the coast is around 30 miles from the site) or try your luck landing salmon or trout on the River Torridge.

    Had no electric hook up as it tripped or there was a power cut, tried to call the site but no answer, so left the site and went home very disappointed.

From the manager...

Dear Dominic S.
Naturally here at Appledore Park we are disappointed with your kind review.
Your visit coincided with storm Dennis on Saturday 15th February 2020, not the very best occasion for an objective assessment?
It would seem that your arrival coincided with the loss of electrical power to our property, possibly not surprising given the extreme weather conditions of the day. No doubt you will understand that it was a failing of our service to yourself which was beyond our control, yet still are sorry and apologize for your inconvenience.
We are glad to report that other visitors with us that afternoon were willing to wait a while when normal service was restored by Western Power Distribution, no doubt by their personnel working under difficult and extreme conditions.
We are most happy for readers of this, our humble, message to compare your review with the many others we have had the pleasure to receive. Meantime we do hope that you might consider revisiting Appledore Park under more clement weather conditions?
Kindest Regards
Tim and Rebecca Webb. Appledore Park.

  • Liked: 

    The access roads and pitches making motorhome siting easy. The clean facilities provided in the toilet block together with a useful information room.

    Disliked: 

    Not too keen on the automatic shower system, a normal tap system would be better. The drain point for motorhome was not easy to access if your drain point is on the van’s nearside.

    Lovely setting, spotless facilities and a really warm welcome from Tim and Rebecca. Great if you want to get away from it all and just relax. Sketchy mobile signal but great wi-fi (if those things are important to you!).

    Disliked: 

    The road is a bit too busy to walk along so you have to drive if you want to go anywhere.

Directions


Appledore Park is two miles east of Okehampton on the B3125. Satnav systems may guide you through lanes unsuitable for caravans, so follow these directions for the best towing route.

Exit the A30, signposted Okehampton, B3260. Head in the direction of Okehampton. At the traffic lights by the police station take the right-hand lane signposted Hospital, then turn right. At the mini roundabout take the second exit, onto the B3215 to North Tawton & Crediton. Continue on this road. The site is after about two miles on the left, opposite a layby.

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

Start off at Okehampton to see the ruins of 11th-century Okehampton Castle and explore the industrial past of Dartmoor at Finch Foundry, England’s last working water-powered forge. The Museum of Dartmoor Life, an 18th-century mill with info on the moors throughout the ages and a reconstructed Bronze Age fort and Victorian kitchen, is at the town’s West Street.

Nearby Castle Drogo, ‘the last to be built in England’, is now a Grade I-listed building looked after by the National Trust, with the Trust’s highest garden, rose gardens and paths snaking below into the gorge of the Teign valley. ‘Perhaps the most famous walk in Dartmoor’ (so says the NT) is the circular walk from Castle Drogo, above the Teign and along Hunters Path to cross the river.

The nearest sands are Bude and Widemouth Bay about 45 minutes’ drive away.

Must see

  • Castle Drogo (8.2 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (14.5 miles)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (19.3 miles)
