Wild camping pitch

General

  • Peaceful, rural and hidden away site on 68 acres of woodland
  • Campfires encouraged
  • 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, fit around a growing forest with accommodation areas carefully laid out by the helpful and friendly owners, and is a mere ten-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.

Facilities clean and adequate. Bed/duvet uncomfortable. Staff friendly16/03/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Microlodge
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Site manager was very helpful. Nice to have a fire pit. Shower and toilet facilities clean and functional. Nice to have a fridge, freezer and sink for dishwashing. There is also a microwave and electric kettle.

    Excellent location close to moorland hiking and coastline.

    Disliked: 

    Mattress was lumpy. The worst I can remember experiencing. Duvet was of poor quality its inner cover such low friction that it moved around inside our duvet outer cover. If I stayed again I would bring a thick camping mat or inflatable mattress and my own duvet and lie on top of the mat/provided duvet (to reduce the lumpiness) and under my own duvet.

    Heating was provided by a 450 W convection heater. With nightime lows of 4 C this was barely adequate to heat the microlodge.

    Site owner was away overseas (in a GMT+8 hrs time zone). She failed to mention this and, bizarrely, provided us only with her mobile phone number, and not that of the on-site manager. This caused confusion and a 40-minute wait on arrival (5:30 pm) before we made contact with the site-manager, who was very helpful. Even after the problem became apparent to her (and after all was well, as it happens) she did not email or text the site-manager's mobile.

From the manager...

Hi Christopher

Thanks for the review, I'm sorry you found the mattress lumpy thats the first i have heard of this, yes i was away but i did say to phone for reception when i text you the barrier code the number for this is on your booking form and then someone could of directed you to the micro lodge ,rather than you having to wait.

Kind regards

Helen

    Lots of ongoing work on womens toilets and showers which I very much appreciate must be done in low season.
    £3.50 per night for the dog seems excessive.

    Loved going back to basic needs, there doing work to their site but it was clean, well looked after and the chap who booked us in couldn't be more helpful. We arrived late in the beginnings of storm Dennis and he help us with an extenson lead for the electrics and got drenched in the making. Helen (the owner) was accidentally pocket dialled by my husband and she called back within minutes to ensure we were ok. There's washing facilities such as showers and laundry room, kitchen with a fridge and kettle ect. We were surrounded by beautiful tall trees, no noise, good connections to anywhere we wanted to go and best of all peace and quiet! So glad we picked to go here for our first try out in the camper 👍🏼

A pleasant stay despite foul weather.12/02/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomJim G.Confirmed

  • Electric optional gravel touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Absolute quietness of the site , the feeling of being in the heart of nature yet with hot washrooms on hand to keep the experience enjoyable ( February is not a time for “roughing it, “washing in streams and the like). The informality of the site is also refreshing after the serried ranks encountered on other sites in the south west. We were there during Storm Ciara and were relieved to be in a sheltered spot after a wind blasted journey to get there and a rocking van the night before.

Local attractions

Tucked away needn’t mean being stuck for things to do... Set in South Hams on the south coast of Devon, the campsite is just off the accessible A38, ten 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, ton fly fish 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.
