A view of the pitch

General

  • Glamping stays in Dartmoor National Park
  • Just outside a moorland village and with woodland views
  • Dogs welcome

Had a baaaad week at work? Filled with shear determination to have a woolly good break overflowing with luxury and glamour? Flock to Dartmoor Shepherd's Huts for a stay in Dartmoor National Park.

The huts here are fully insulated with wool from the site’s own sheep, so remember to baaa thank you as you frolic past. And, while they’re traditional in style, they're properly modern and up to date: timber-built, fully-equipped and sleeping up to four people (two in the double bed and another two on airbeds).

There are moor points here for the site’s location: pitches are in a peaceful Dartmoor valley with woodland views on one side and the Holy Brook on the other, just outside the moorland village of Holne and in an area packed with activities for all ages and tastes.

Naturally there are traditional Devonshire cream teas and the best of local produce around the area, but as it would be knit-picky to camp on Dartmoor and not cook over a traditional campfire too, all pitches have their own firepits and wood is available to buy from the friendly owners.

Dartmoor Shepherd's Huts welcomes well-behaved dogs.

Picturesque site at the foot of the moors10/26/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomDavid T.Confirmed

  • Primitive grass tent or trailer tent site
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    * Picturesque - Surrounded by woods and straddling a babbling brook
    * Sheltered - A stones throw from the moors but much calmer weather
    * Location - Walk out of the tent and up to Ryder's Hill and the rest of East Dartmoor
    * Solitude - Other than the odd 'Good morning' there was no pressure to socialise
    * Convenience - Drinking water, clean toilets, showers, and wash rooms. Parking at the pitch.
    * Fires - Fire pits at every pitch with wood to pick up with a £5 trust box

    Disliked: 

    I really can't think of anything! Those looking for perfectly flat lawn pitches may not like it, but ideal for myself.

    The hut asthetics

    Disliked: 

    There was no electric in the hut we selected, even though it was termed a 'modern' hut and had lights, there was no heating - it was absolutely freezing the whole and this ruined the entire experience. There is no reception, which is fine, but when we arrived the electric was not working in our hut, however this was resolved very quickly (Which was good). however, only 2 out 6 so lights worked in the hut for our stay, so it was dark. Dark and cold. There was no toilet paper in the womans toilet for at least 24 hours (I only stayed one night so could not say how long it went on). The facilities were a bit far from the huts. There was no hot water. Generally it was an unpleasant stay, however it was very cheap (£40 per night) so should have expected that, but I think a tent would have been as nice and warmer.

    I loved the location of Sheperd's Huts as it is close to walks and accessible to town. I especially liked the stream and cooking outside on the open fire. There is wood available for use at £5 a bag.

    Disliked: 

    The fridge needed a clean which I did. There was no hot water when washing hands in the bathrooms which under current circumstances is not good.

  • Liked: 

    Clean facilities, friendly staff and a quiet campsite. The site has nice pitches that are not entirely private, but the site is small enough that you don't feel crowded. It's not just a farmers field; there are pitches for small tents, large tents and groups across three areas with a stream running through the middle and trees all around. Being able to have a campfire is also always a big win for me. I would camp here again.

    Disliked: 

    Some pitches are a bit overlooked. I prefer the pitches to feel more isolated, although the spot we took was nice.

Local attractions

Food, glorious food… dive into the middle of the Westcountry’s larder to sample loads of local produce in the area’s restaurants and pubs: the Church House Inn a mile away at Holne shouldn’t prove to be too strenuous a walk back to base once you’ve munched your way through the fresh fish, Dartmoor venison or ploughman platters on offer.

If you decide that you need to walk off the Devonshire delights, you won’t be far away from plenty of scenic sights: there are heather-covered hills, wild Dartmoor ponies and walking routes all nearby, along with ancient archaeological landmarks such as stone circles, cairns and clapper bridges.

Climb a tor to have your breath taken away again by the scenery below: this is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a mix of woodland, reservoir, valley and cave habitats.

A few miles further afield, start off at the High Moorland Visitor Centre to find out everything you need to know about Dartmoor’s history, wildlife and culture, then go on a history tour to take in Buckfast Abbey and Devon’s castles or take a wildlife trip to the area’s farm attractions Pennywell Farm, Totnes Rare Breed Farm and the Buckfast Butterflies and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary.

If you’ve had one too many cream teas (it’s easily done) and prefer to take in the scenery while sitting down, steam along to the South Devon Railway for valley views from Buckfastleigh to Totnes.

There are baleloads of family attractions in the area for you all to flock to: let the kids walk on water at the award-winning River Dart Country Park, ape the baboons and gorillas at Paignton Zoo or goggle at the sharks at the UK’s biggest aquarium, the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth.
