Beech Tree Farm: A view of the site

General

  • Peaceful, dog-friendly site in Dartmoor National Park
  • Walking distance from reservoirs; a 25-minute drive to Fingle Bridge
  • Ex-army mess tent for dining and relaxing; natural firepit area

Wild swimming, cycling, hiking or horse riding down lush Devon lanes… the wild and windswept Dartmoor National Park is where you’ll find Beech Tree Farm. At this peaceful site you’ll all have the run of a flat farm meadow with an adjoining copse of mature trees.

There's plenty of space to go around too, and it's all centred around a natural firepit area and a large vintage army mess tent space for chilling out and cooking.

The other facilities on site have a nice touch too – and that includes a railway carriage conversion with two loos, two hot water showers rooms, a mobile phone charging point and running water for dishwashing, drinking and cooking.

Very well-behaved dogs are welcome (the usual doggy rules apply and bins are provided), as are children (there’s a huge area for them to run around). There is livestock on the farm, so guests are asked to be mindful (stag or hen parties are not permitted for this reason).

The way here is quite hidden and you’ll pass Blackingstone Tor on your way. But you won’t be too far away from Moretonhampstead (10 minutes’ drive), where there are all the usual amenities including pubs, restaurants, cafés and takeaways, plus a supermarket, butcher, greengrocer and zero shop, all with locally-sourced food.

Please note

Guests are advised to bring a good quality torch with them as parts of the site are unlit.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Commercial vehicles (vehicles used for work-related purposes, carrying goods or fare-paying passengers) and sign-written vehicles are not permitted on site.

If reception is closed on arrival: please contact the number provided on your booking confirmation.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Minimum spacing of 6 metres between pitches.

At least one of the party members must be aged 25 or over.

Please note that the toilet/shower facilities are unisex.

No hen/stag parties permitted via Pitchup.com.

Lovely remote campsite11/10/2021

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful location, very remote and picturesque. Only a 10min drive to Moretonhampstead though where we had a good meal at The Horse pub. Jenny the owner of the campsite was lovely and friendly. The army mess tent had been removed because of high winds the week before and we hadn't been made aware so we were a bit disappointed when we first arrived. But Jenny provided us with a fire pit, logs and firelighter free of charge to make up for it which was great! Toilet facilities etc were all fine. A great stay overall!

    Disliked: 

    A bit disappointed that the mess tent wasn't there as we hadn't brought camping chairs etc, thinking there would be some there already. But the owner provided us with things to make up for it, which was much appreciated.

    Large field, loads of space, hot showers, clean toilet facilities. Good communication from owners. Great views across countryside. It's around 10 mins drive from Moretonhampstead on country lanes which was perfect for us.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing!
    Note to others that there is a tap but no big sink, so useful to bring your own washing up bowl.

From the manager...

Thanks for a lovely review, a wash-up area is planned for next year

    We had a fab time at this camp site. The bathroom facilities are beautiful! Really high pressure and hot showers, and flushing toilets. They were super clean! Loads of pitches. Surroundings are beautiful, Blackingstone Rock nearby is great for watching the sunrise. Nice town nearby with everything you need. Thanks Jenny!

    This campsite is super rural, wasn’t a problem for us but might be a trek for some depending on from which direction you approach.
