General

  • 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.

    No one there to guide us to our pitch and no arrival envelope as we lead to believe. The owners were not there and another person staying at appledore told us where to pitch. No answer on phone listed in email in fact it appeared to be unable to take calls. No one came to see us and ask if we were ok The flies were everywhere intact 2 days later we are still finding them in our windows not a good stay. It was quiet and close to okehampton but not the quality of site I was given to believe from reviews luckily we were only there for one night toilets and showers were very clean

    We stayed one night as planned in hike tent after cycling halfway along the Devan C2C. Camp site was well planned out with a COVID welcome pack site map etc waiting for us at the gate. Camp site was very clean and well-spaced out, showers etc great so 9/10 on that front.

    Disliked: 

    The only downside is the location - near a very busy main road. We were pitched near edge of the site maybe 6 to 8m from the main road. Traffic kept us up until gone 1 and again woke us up at 6 in the morning due to cars driving too fast. Sorry not the fault of the camp site and if we were in a campervan this may have not been an issue, Maybe worth investing in some timber fencing and more trees along the road side to reduce the noise. Apart from road the camp site was great.

Local attractions

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.
