Hideaway Camping is a secluded site on the edge of Dartmoor, on 24 acres of peaceful and private Devon countryside. It's 15 minutes' drive from the market town of Okehampton, 20 minutes from Roadford Lake and within 40 minutes of the seaside resort of Bude.

All guests have access to the site's Little Melbury cabin, the communal space which includes two showers and two flushing toilets as well as a shared kitchen with a cooker, microwave, fridge, pots and pans, and basic cooking utensils.

On wet days you can lounge on the sofa next to the log burner, browse through the selection of books, play a board game and leaf through the info provided on the local area and its many tourist attractions. The cabin also has a kids' corner with books, toys and puzzles, and a decking area outside with chairs and an excellent view.

A reasonable experience spoilt by the atrocious track from the road 24/08/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom keith_g269627 Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass tent or trailer tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Welcome on arrival. Showers and normal toilets. Cabin room. Information about attractions.
    Wide open spaces.

    Disliked: 

    Mud, eco toilets smell. The track from the road to the camp. Leaving the track onto the road (nasty blind corner on 60 mph road). Distance to normal toilets. The owner's dog running free on a "no dogs" site". Noisy neighbours, (not the fault of Hideaway but it prevented us from having a peaceful experience).

Excellent site, clean facilities, lovely owners. 22/08/2017

  • Iglulu camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We had such a lovely welcome from the site owners, very friendly, very welcoming and so, so helpful. The fire that they started in the middle of the field for everyone to sit around was a lovely touch to our stay.
    The Iglu pod was lovely and warm, lots of space and everything you could possibly need made available within the pod itself - not having to go outside to boil water for your early morning coffee was fab!
    The communal toilets and showers - wow! It's what you would expect at home. Perfect!
    Surroundings were also lovely.

    Was perfect, lovely quite location great if u want to escape the normal rat race of the world and enjoy some quality family time. We stayed in the iglulu which was such a novelty, its set up with all u need to cook, clean and keep urself warm and toasty its fantastic!!! They have pigs, fairy garden, hammocks garden, a couple if little walks along the stream. They had rope swings up the trees which my boys enjoyed the most. I would definitely recommend to anyone and hope u enjoy it as much as my family did. High light for me was definitely roasting our feet my the camp fire while watching the meteor shower amazing!!!

    Disliked: 

    Only very small dislike for me was the walk down the hill to the compost loo, seems so far away when ur desperate in the night but it's not actually that far.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us we really appreciate it and hope to see you again!
