Wild camping at its best

General

  • Peaceful, rural and hidden away site on 68 acres of woodland
  • Campfires encouraged
  • Toilets, hot showers, laundry room and communal fire area

Have a secluded and hidden away stay at peaceful and rural Ashbourne Woods near South Brent in Devon, in a range of accommodation to suit all outdoor holiday sorts.

The site is set on 68 acres of woodland, fit around a growing forest with accommodation areas carefully laid out by the helpful and friendly owners, and is a mere ten-minute stroll from a cosy and rather fab eleventh century pub. And as befits a rural and tucked away site such as this, campfires are encouraged here, so bring along the sausages and marshmallows for toasty evenings under the Devon stars...

Ashbourne's main camping area has a shared fridge for essentials and a communal fire area, as well as water facilities, toilets, hot showers and a laundry/washing up area with hot and cold water and coin-operated washing and drying machines.

Pups are barking up the right tree at Ashbourne Woods too - they’re welcome across the site and accommodation types, and the two and a half miles of dog-walking tracks nearby will make a stay for pooches here anything but ruff.

Travelling as single parent and son (older child). Very cosy Kiwi hut11/01/2020

    Travelling as single parent and son (older child). Very cosy Kiwi hut, booked as we expected horrid weather and it poured consistently! Hut was cosy on arrival as little plug in radiator had heated up space prior to arrival-nice touch! My son loved the bed on the mezzanine level and i loved the double on the ground floor-especially lying opposite the window and looking straight out through the rain into the woods. Staff helpful, friendly and welcoming. Gorgeous and accessible walks. Would really benefit from a rope swing/ similar. Looking forward to a return trip with better weather and using the firepit. Would certainly want to stay on wild camping pitch in the spring/summer. Would definitely return and when possible maybe with my brother's family too.

    Disliked: 

    Expensive vending machine! Duvet's had a crunchy quality and would recommend bringing all your own bedding. Mezzanine camping mattress could do with replacing- looked pretty ancient- though all provided bedding was clear and laundered.
    Would benefit from shelter to cook under (A-frame) when wet as the small exposed porch area provided little to no shelter for cooking in the rain.

From the manager...

Hi Samantha,
I am glad you had a good stay.
Thankyou for your pointers on the site.
The rope swing was cut down by a previous camper but will be replaced in the spring.
The duvet crunchy Quality was because that is a cover sheet and not bedding, you were supposed to bring your own or book it under extras, we cannot supply bedding at this time due to covid restictions. We are looking at providing shelters during the winter months, and the price of the vending machine will be looked at.
Many thanks,
Lister.

Hi Clare,
Did you have a bad year and needed to take it out on someone.
Quite a shitty review, surrounded by 10 out of 10s .
Maybe you would have spoken to us about your problems, but you didn't have any, you just played Drum & bass upsetting the rest of the people on site, and were asked to keep the noise down on several occasions. Glad you are not coming back, and i pity your next chose of stay.

Picturesque site, spacious, warm welcome from the staff, safe to visit10/18/2020

    Excellent site! We stayed in our horsebox conversion and had a brilliant stay. The pitch is very spacious and the view into the forest is beautiful, especially early in the morning when the light was shining through the trees. Great facilities, a warm welcome from the lady who came to greet us and give us some info (Laura I think). We were lucky to have 2 nights of clear skies and saw some shooting stars. We hiked to Dartmoor from the site, which is easy to access if you have a map, completed a 30km loop. The site also felt and hygienic.

    We will definitely be returning soon :)

    Thank you!

Local attractions

Tucked away needn’t mean being stuck for things to do... Set in South Hams on the south coast of Devon, the campsite is just off the accessible A38, ten miles from the sea and less than a mile from Dartmoor National Park.

Half an hour’s drive away is Compton Castle, a manor with orchard-filled gardens for apple-y ambling around, while the National Trust’s Church House on Dartmoor is just over a 20-minute drive north. For active types, horse riding and sailing can also be jumped upon around Dartmoor and on the coast.

Cast a line to Hatchlands Trout Farm, just ten minutes by car, ton fly fish on the well-stocked rainbow trout lake, or try the coarse fishing also available in the surrounding areas: ask the Ashbourne Woods team to point you and your rod in the right direction.

As well as the nearby beaches to treat and tire out, day trips to keep little holidaymakers happy also include Pennywell Farm (less than five minutes away) where animal fans can snuggle the pigs, collect eggs, help feed the lambs and even try their hand at milking the goats; Woodland Family Theme Park for daredevil youngsters (just 30 minutes away), with rides, falconry display and zoo farm, and Staverton Steam Railway, the first choo-choo-choice for little locomotive fans.
