Ashbourne Woods: Wild camping at its best

General

  • Peaceful, rural and hidden-away site on 68 acres of woodland
  • Campfires encouraged; cosy pub 10 minutes' walk away
  • Toilets, hot showers, laundry room and communal fire area

Have a secluded and hidden away stay at peaceful and rural Ashbourne Woods near South Brent in Devon, in a range of accommodation to suit all outdoor holiday sorts.

The site is set on 68 acres of woodland set around a growing forest with accommodation areas carefully laid out by the helpful and friendly owners, and is a mere 10-minute stroll from a cosy and rather fab eleventh-century pub. And as befits a rural and tucked away site such as this, campfires are encouraged here, so bring along the sausages and marshmallows for toasty evenings under the Devon stars…

Ashbourne's main camping area has a shared fridge for essentials and a communal fire area, as well as water facilities, toilets, hot showers and a laundry/washing up area with hot and cold water and coin-operated washing and drying machines.

Pups are barking up the right tree at Ashbourne Woods too – they’re welcome across the site and accommodation types, and the two and a half miles of dog-walking tracks nearby will make a stay for pooches here anything but ruff.

    Great communication from site before arrival. First impressions do count from staff to the site very good. Booking in was excellent even had an upgrade, showed me to my pitch and provide wheel barrows to transfer your equipment to your pitch. All facilities were in great order down to a well stocked little shop if you have forgotten something. Great site.

    Beautiful location, small and discreet, with the option of fire pits, safe spaces for pets and children, and pub in walking distance. Friendly helpful welcome. Small shop. Trolleys to help you get your xamp gear from car park to pitch. Wash facilities were modern and clean with lots of added extras such as microwave for use.

    There didn't appear to be hot water in the ladies for washing your hands.

    I LOVED THIS SITE!!
    We were on the wild camping gravel area in the woods. We had our campervan and dog and we all loved it. The pitches are well spaced apart and you feel miles from anyone. The facilities - showers and toilets are near the reception and shop. We had a fire pit and we purchased the wood from the small shop, but you did have the option to forage for you own in the forest. Lovely wooded walks and a walk to Rattery and the lovely local pub.
    All in all 5/5 from me.
    The camp site has not packed in the pitches but considered the need of the campers. Perfect location for a quiet relaxing couple of days.

Local attractions

Tucked away needn’t mean being stuck for things to do… Set in the South Hams on the south coast of Devon, the campsite is just off the accessible A38, 10 miles from the sea and less than a mile from Dartmoor National Park.

Half an hour’s drive away is Compton Castle, a manor with orchard-filled gardens for apple-y ambling around, while the National Trust’s Church House on Dartmoor is just over a 20-minute drive north. For active types, horse riding and sailing can also be jumped upon around Dartmoor and on the coast.

Cast a line to Hatchlands Trout Farm, just ten minutes by car, for fly fishing on the well-stocked rainbow trout lake, or try the coarse fishing also available in the surrounding areas: ask the Ashbourne Woods team to point you and your rod in the right direction.

As well as the nearby beaches to treat and tire out, day trips to keep little holidaymakers happy also include Pennywell Farm (less than five minutes away) where animal fans can snuggle the pigs, collect eggs, help feed the lambs and even try their hand at milking the goats; Woodland Family Theme Park for daredevil youngsters (just 30 minutes away), with rides, falconry display and zoo farm, and Staverton Steam Railway, the first choo-choo-choice for little locomotive fans.
