- Well-maintained and popular park two miles from Okehampton
- Coarse fishing lake and thousands of recently planted trees and hedges
- Shower and toilet block with underfloor heating and accessible area
Come and meet Fester… this clever pooch, along with resident owners Tim and Rebecca, runs award-winning Appledore Park two miles from Okehampton near the north Devon coast. And here's where you'll also find over 4,500 recently planted trees and hedges (so far), spankingly clean facilities and so many little extra touches you might wonder if Tim and Rebecca (and Fester) ran campsites in a previous life: ‘awesome’, ‘top notch’ and ‘knocked our socks off’ are just a few of the accolades Appledore has received from grateful guests.
Tim, Rebecca and the dog have eight acres of site land at award-winning Appledore, all with sweet views of the Devon countryside and the park’s surrounding farmland, and landscaped to hold spacious pitches. Up to three well-behaved dogs are allowed per pitch, and a dedicated and fenced dog walking area has been set aside among the tree plantation.
If you’re arriving late, there’s a special late arrivals area with hook-up and water so you can get settled quickly (cuppa). To this smart idea the team have added free wifi throughout, a dishwashing and veg prep area, and a room with charging points and info on the surrounding area. The amenities block has underfloor heating, private cubicles and an accessible area for disabled guests – and are so well maintained they've won a Loo of the Year award.
Finally, fancy some fishing? Appledore Park has its own coarse fishing lake for guests and you can also cast off from the quay at Appledore village, take a boat out to the sea (the coast is around 30 miles from the site) or try your luck landing salmon or trout on the River Torridge.

Start off at Okehampton to see the ruins of 11th-century Okehampton Castle and explore the industrial past of Dartmoor at Finch Foundry, England’s last working water-powered forge. The Museum of Dartmoor Life, an 18th-century mill with info on the moors throughout the ages and a reconstructed Bronze Age fort and Victorian kitchen, is at the town’s West Street.
Nearby Castle Drogo, ‘the last to be built in England’, is now a Grade I-listed building looked after by the National Trust, with the Trust’s highest garden, rose gardens and paths snaking below into the gorge of the Teign valley. ‘Perhaps the most famous walk in Dartmoor’ (so says the NT) is the circular walk from Castle Drogo, above the Teign and along Hunters Path to cross the river.
The nearest sands are Bude and Widemouth Bay about 45 minutes’ drive away.
