Practicalities are covered on site for a restful place to come back to, with ladies' and gents' amenities blocks, a family bathroom, a launderette and charging facilities all available to guests. The site also has a shop selling bits and bobs from locally made food and ice creams to gas canisters and newspapers (order in advance for your daily read).

A farm shop is on the outskirts of Launceston about a 20-minute drive away and a large supermarket's about five minutes further on for stocking up for your stay or for a barbecue back at base.

    Rangers friendly and knowledgeable, spectacular scenery, shop well equipped, good flat pitch, site very well maintained, toilets and showers very clean. Excellent base for walking the moor. Recommend the evening meal at the local pub, breakfast not so. £28 for 2 cooked breakfasts with an extra egg seemed excessive but pleasant enough. All in all a fabulous site.

Directions


Please beware of using satnav systems when approaching the site due to narrow roads. Approach via the A386. The only route for towed or large units is:

From the north:
Turn south from the A30 onto the A386 signposted Tavistock and Plymouth. Continue for approximately 3.5 miles, passing the Fox and Hounds pub on the left. In another mile, turn right into Lydford village just before the Dartmoor Inn (look for a tall brown tourist board sign showing Lydford, campsite symbols, golf and Lydford Gorge with a telephone box on the left). Note the junction is slightly obscured so approach slowly. After turning, in half a mile take the first right at the war memorial and in 50 yards bear right at the Y-junction. The site is 100 yards on the left.

From the south:
Via Tavistock, approach only using the A386. At the Dartmoor Inn turn left into Lydford village. After turning, in half a mile turn right at the war memorial and then in 50 yards bear right at the Y-junction. The site is 100 yards along on the left.

Local attractions

If you’d rather ditch your ride and take public transport from just outside the site, Okehampton to the north and Tavistock to the south are both under half an hour away by bus. Head to the latter for the Museum of Dartmoor Life and cool castle ruins, or take the car if you’re planning on heading deeper into Dartmoor afterwards to climb the rocky High Willhays and Yes Tor peaks (both about 55 minutes’ drive).

Tavistock, an ancient stannary and market town on the River Tavy, is also top notch: journey here for the living museum on Morwellham Quay (25 minutes), the historic Buckland Abbey (half an hour) and the family-friendly Tamar Trails Centre activity area.

Within a few minutes' walk of the site, veer off on your gorge stroll for a look at Lydford Castle and Saxon Town, a former prison dating back to the ninth century and now managed by English Heritage. It sits next to St Petroc’s Church plus a pub serving food (both also within a five-minute walk of the site).

If the kids are keen for the coast, Plymouth is 40 minutes’ drive away.

Must see

  • Castle Drogo (13.3 miles)
  • Dartmoor Zoological Park (17.2 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (18.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Lydford Gorge (0.4 miles)
  • Finch Foundry (9.6 miles)
