Ashbourne Woods: Wild camping at its best

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.

    This place is quite a find. We only booked for 1 night but decided to book extra nights and stay for the rest of our break as it was so peaceful and relaxing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There's also a little shop on site for basic provisions. You can hire firepits and buy logs for when the sun goes down. Absolutely loved the place. We will be back.

    We loved this place!! We like to be tucked away camping and the wild pitches have so much space! Felt like an escapes but great to have showers and water taps near by as well! All sites allow fires (camping is not the same without!). We were able to find a beach about 30minutes away which was secluded. We had such a great time that we have booked to come again in July. Very warm welcome as well from reception. There is also a shop with emergency items such as milk etc if needed which is a nice touch.

    Gorgeous site and very well set out and managed- although a large space all divided up so very private and peaceful. A relaxed feel and we were welcomed so warmly. Lots of space for the pitch and facilities amazing - especially the vending machine- chocolate supply 24/7!! Can fully recommend the local cider bought from the shop! Amazing bird song chorus in the mornings

    Disliked: 

    Would just advise if travelling with larger vehicle to approach from A38 side- as lanes through Rattery full of other cars who won't reverse for you...

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.
