Oakenhambridge Camping: Rustic swing

General

  • Level field with large pitches on the banks of the River Avon
  • Several beaches within a half-hour drive; 10 minutes to Dartmoor
  • In the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Oakenhambridge Camping is a peaceful site on the banks of the river Avon, just outside the village of Diptford up at the northern end of the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There’s plenty of space on the large pitches here – each one measures about five square metres, and they’re all on a pleasingly level field. That means lots of scope to run about and play games, or to set up a barbecue at a safe distance from all such action. It's a simple setup here so there’s no running water or other luxuries, but you’ll have access to portaloos in the field.

Supplies for your grill can be picked up at the shops in Totnes, 15 minutes’ drive away; if you’re not in the mood for cooking, there are easy eats on hand at the family-friendly local pub – it’s just over a mile away, with a large beer garden for those warm evenings.

As you’ll be staying in an officially scenic area, it’s no surprise to hear that there are lots of places to get out for walks and bike rides nearby – and the trails of Dartmoor National Park are only about 10-15 minutes away by car, too. And of course you’re never that far from the coast in Devon: here there are several lovely sandy stretches within a half-hour drive, including Blackpool Sands, Bantham beach, Torcross and Bigbury-on-Sea (where you can ride the sea tractor out to Burgh Island).

Please note

At least one of the party members must be aged 18 or over.

This site has no on-site shower facilities.

    Lovely site, flat and just beside the River Avon which provided us with a weir to cool off. Owners were very knowledgeable about the history of the surroundings, very approachable and kind. I will definitely recommend to friends and hope to return. Many thanks D & D.

From the manager...

Hello
Thanks for your comments. That's a good idea re the lighting - we are going to get some LED lights on the fence especially near the toilets and rubbish disposal points but not to disturb the 'dark night skies'
All the best, Diane

    Such a gorgeous spot to pitch our tent. We were a group of four families coming from Hampshire looking for a camping getaway for four nights. This spot was perfect. The children had hours of fun in the river, we visited Mothecome which was beautiful, we went for a small hike on one of the Tors. I think I’ve fallen in love with Devon.
    The campsite was basic, running water and a flush loo and exactly how we wanted it to be. Cooked our food over the open campfire, really getting back to basics.

Thank you for visiting - so pleased you enjoyed your stay and managed to visit the lovely beach at Mothecombe (hope you tried the Surfing Cow ice Cream made next door!) and Dartmoor.
