Summer view from the camping field over the Teign valley

General

  • Family site in Dartmoor National Park, seven miles from the coast
  • A couple of minutes' walk from a 16th-century pub
  • Teign valley views; shop; campfires allowed

'Feral children are welcome,' say the amicable owners of Hennock Hideaways near Devon's Bovey Tracey – and so this should be a site of happy days for their well-behaved grownups too. (Dogs that can behave around livestock are most welcome here as well.)

While the kids are doing endless and happily tiring laps around the Hennock camping field, the big folk can get on with what's important in life, such as sparking up a campfire then cheerfully considering where to visit next on their Devon hol: Hennock Hideways is just inside Dartmoor National Park, about seven miles from the coast and less than 10 miles from Dawlish. Sitting back with a beer and submerging oneself in the Teign valley views might be a considerably clever option from here too...

The site has basic facilities including four main toilets, two hot showers and a washing-up area. Free tea and coffee is available at the Tea Shed and essentials can be picked up at the small on-site shop.

The family-friendly atmosphere, Devon ciders, real ales, wine and well-priced pub food of the local pub, 16th-century freehouse the Palk Arms, are a two-minute walk away; cooked breakfasts are often available here too.

(Hennock can't take tourers or large motorhomes because of its secluded location and narrow lanes; please also be careful with wide vehicles and sports cars when approaching the site.)

    Great views, space and facilities- had a lovely hot shower. Lots of space and relaxed with the dog. They did such a great job with little blackboards and fairy lights everywhere and fire pits available to use. Looks like they are starting food services also - coffee/ breakfast and pizza. We will definitely try that next time!

    Disliked: 

    The local pub was terrible- hennock hideaway made up for that!

  • Liked: 

    Stunning views of surrounding countryside by day, rolling green fields and picturesque landscapes. By night the stars seem so close you can touch them. Freely available fire pits and reasonably priced firewood add to the ambience of this relaxed and uncrowded camp site. A veritable little gem.

    Disliked: 

    Showers could be a little temperamental though worked fine for partner (annoyingly).

    Lovely site, fabulous views and good facilities. Tea shed and honesty shop very much appreciated. We can't wait to return and booked an extra night on top of our eleven night stay.
    The owners were really friendly and helpful and lots of campers said they'd been back multiple times.
    Many places to visit from the site and we just had the best time.

Directions

Local attractions

Hennock Hideaways is only two miles from the A38 so has easy access to many Devon attractions inland and down towards the south coast (feel free to tackle the north Devon coast too: it's less than two hours away).

Very close by, a local park is in Hennock village and three reservoirs are within a mile or two, one of which is a trout fly fishery. Pike fishing and boat hire are also available.

Two miles away is Bovey Tracey with shops, a few more pubs, takeaways and a craft centre along with a pretty park with walks by the River Teign. And talking of walks... the letterboxing, hikes and tor-to-tor walks of Dartmoor are very close to base; small sorts heading here can also ride Dartmoor ponies.

The south Devon coast of seaside town Teignmouth is about seven miles away: follow the coastal road from here to Torbay and then Brixham, where you can see the Hennock Hideaways' own fishing trawler the Katy Jane.

Must see

  • Castle Drogo (14.0 kilometers)
  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (14.9 kilometers)
  • Buckfast Abbey (16.0 kilometers)

Additional terms

The site is in a national park and so the entrance is not lit due to park regulations: therefore no arrivals can be accepted after 8pm.

Please note that at times of extreme wet weather the site entrance may be muddy, but it will be safe to enter. There are two secondary and signposted exits which remain dry.

As a rural site in a quiet area, the site does not accept large campervans (over 7 meters) as it has narrow country lanes.

The toilets and showers are down the bottom of a slope, between 40 metres and 80 metres from the nearest pitch. The site location is at least 10 minutes' drive along country lanes and uphill.

The local pub is closed on Mondays and lunchtimes.

The shop is only fully stocked at peak times - bank holidays, half terms and summer holidays. No perishable goods are stocked at other times.

Guests can recycle all types of rubbish by separation, including food and nappies, but dustbin liners of mixed rubbish cannot be accepted.

Children must be supervised at all times.
