Grass pitch

General

  • Well-maintained site on the edge of Dartmoor, with tor views
  • Tavistock 20 minutes drive; Lydford Gorge five minutes' walk
  • Dog walking area and shop selling locally made food

Touring Devon? Place yourself in the middle of the county and have easy access to 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.

    Close to a lovely little village and some surrounding areas of natural beauty, a very short walk from the site to local pubs and Lydford Gorge which is stunning.
    Arrived too early as as they were not too busy helped us get set and then checked everything was okay. Little shop on site for essentials and Wi-fi at £1 per day which is needed. Overall a lovely stay would stop here again.

    Excellent well kept site, spotless clean facilities and a small shop. Lovely location in village of Lydford. Bus stop close to site entrance to Tavistock market town. Or staying in Lydford. The Castle pub is just 8 mins walk, next to a Pretty church with Commonwealth War graves and Castle ruins all close by. Then another 12 minutes walk to the entrance to Lydford Gorge, Devils Caldron and the White Lady Waterfall (National Trust). Well worth the 3 mile round walk trip through the gorge and waterfall. Tea rooms halfway round. Buckland Abbey (NT) only 30 mins drive through beautiful part of Dartmoor, sheep, cattle and horses and ponies roaming free.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at all. All excellent.

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 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: 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)
