Touring Devon? Place yourself in the middle of the county and have easy access to both north and south as well as moors and beaches with a stay at Lydford Caravan and Camping Park; this friendly and well-kept site also has pretty views of Dartmoor’s tors from its designated dog-walking area…
Start planning your adventures with a browse of the tourist and local info at Lydford's dishwashing and veg prep area, or ask staff for their fave attractions and activities in the area. Need a top tip first? The deepest gorge in England is only five minutes' walk away: set off on the circular trail around this National Trust-protected place, passing by the Whitelady Waterfall and Devil’s Cauldron. For bike rides, the Granite Way cycle route runs near the site to Okehampton, nine miles away.
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 hypermarket’s about five minutes further on if stocking up for your stay or for a barbecue back at base.

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.
