Harford Bunkhouse and Camping: Spacious pitches with no size restriction

General

  • Working farm site on the southern edge of Dartmoor
  • A range of accommodation, all with parking alongside
  • Dogs on leads welcome and small campfires allowed

Kayakers, canoeists, families, couples and groups have all been known to bunk down at the friendly Harford Bunkhouse and Camping, a working farm on the southern edge of Dartmoor where the main sounds you’ll hear are the site animals – not a baaaaad sound to wake up to…

Harford is right on Dartmoor, with moor than enough stuff in the area for all ages and inclinations, including poking around tiny traditional villages, farm sites and zoos, old houses and ancient castles, and active options like watersports, climbing, hiking and biking. And hacking: nearby Ivybridge has a couple of riding schools for group and private lessons, and there are miles of bridleways, old byways and moorland routes around Dartmoor.

The site is a short distance from the river and a mile and a half from the old town of Ivybridge with several pubs, Tesco and the rated Riverbank restaurant in the Glanvilles Mill shopping centre. It welcomes dogs (on leads at all times, please) and allows small campfires – although fires (and barbecues) must be kept off the ground and are at the owners’ discretion, so please ask before you spark one up.

Please note

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) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

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

Lovely location with great walking nearby. Night skies were lovely. …24/10/2020

    Lovely location with great walking nearby. Night skies were lovely. High earth bank field boundary provided good protection from the wind. As it was out of season and I was by myself most nights I was allowed to use the indoor showers usually reserved for the bunk barn. I was also advised to use the ladies toilet as it was closer which I thought was considerate.

    Disliked: 

    A lot of renovation was going on so it was a bit cluttered (should be good when the work is completed). Was a bit of a pain if met trade vehicles on the approach road as it was a long way to reverse down a narrow lane.

    Lovely views of the moor and high enough to catch evening sun. This was a small well organised campsite, really clean with good hot showers. I will definitely be back.

Quiet rural site with great views towards Dartmoor.23/09/2020

    Quiet rural site.
    Great views towards Dartmoor
    Clean facilities.

    Disliked: 

    No separate drinking water taps, had to use the cold tap at the sinks, not sure if it was safe to drink from there but we didn't get ill.
    No staff present throughout our stay (just the one night) and no answer to any of the 3 telephone numbers provided, but this wasn't really a problem, we just pitched our tent and got on with it!

    Beautiful location, spacious field. Good and clean facilities. Friendly resident animals. We were lucky to have clear nights, so the stars were very clear.
    Field is on a hill, but that's to be expected (it is Dartmoor after all). We camped at the top end and it was fine.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at all!

Lovely location & the facilities you need, just choose your pitch well15/09/2020

  • Liked: 

    The location was lovely with the sun coming up over the moors in the morning and setting across the fields in the evening.
    The toilets were clean and had plenty of hot water.
    At the time of our visit, it was nice and quiet too.
    Site is close to town which has shops and places to eat.

    Disliked: 

    The site is mostly on a slope, which although is good for drainage, it does mean you need to orientate your tent well and even with doing so, I found myself waking up at the bottom of my tent rather than at the top where I started the night.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

As well as all the hiking, seeing the Dartmoor ponies is also a must: you’ll spot them all over the moors even if driving, but if you or the kids want to get up close, pony treks are available from several companies, and the Original Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhamstead gives kids the chance to take a better look (double check opening times before you book as they have seasonal opening).

Also nearby for mini naturalists is the Dartmoor Zoological Park, subject of the book and film We Bought a Zoo and housing big cats, monkeys, snakes and plenty more from around the globe; and the National Marine Aquarium less than ten miles away in Plymouth.

Three top walking trails are within a couple of miles of Harford Bunkhouse: the Erme Valley Trail, the Erme-Plym Trail and the Two Moors coast to coast Way from Ivybridge on the south coast to Lynmouth, Exmoor on the north. This in turn connects at various places to other long-distance paths including the Tarka Trail, the South West Coast Path and the Dartmoor Way.

Walking too much faff? Cast off peacefully with the fishing opps in the area, from guided fly fishing trips on Dartmoor to fishing for salmon and trout on the River Erme.

Must see

  • Dartmoor Zoological Park (5.6 kilometres)
  • Buckfast Abbey (13.5 kilometres)
  • National Marine Aquarium (16.1 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Saltram (12.3 kilometres)
  • Salcombe: Thurlestone to Torcross (12.3 kilometres)
