General

  • Family-run park on the border of Devon and Cornwall
  • Free-range eggs, bacon and sausages produced on site
  • Dog-friendly with designated dog-walking field

Devon or Cornwall, Cornwall or Devon? Settle yourself down at The Old Rectory Caravan and Camping Park, three miles from Tavistock, to explore both with ease.

Amenities at this self-sufficient smallholding include toilet and shower blocks, laundry facilities and a washing-up area; there's also a play area with swings and a slide, and animals to meet and greet.

There are little extras around too, such as welly loan, a welly and bike cleaning area and plenty of recycling facilities (to keep your stay green through and through). You can also tuck into the free-range eggs, sausages and bacon produced on site, and, when the weather’s right, homegrown veggies fresh from the polytunnel.

After dinner, pick up a tome from the on-site book exchange, or get starry eyed at the dark skies above in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

If you’re bringing your own well-behaved four-legged companion, they can be exercised in the site’s designated dog-walking field.

    Hedges between pitches, also flat pitches the owner was very helpful when our car died the night before leaving to jump start it for us. Right next to the dartmoors which is a lovely day out.

    Disliked: 

    Road noise as we was a tent pitch we was close to the road. The toilet facilities could do with more but managed a decent hot shower. The lady owner could of been a bit more friendly when we accidently went into the wrong pitch it was a case of misjudgement of the sinage. But it wasn't really a problem the male owner soon sorted us out and made us feel at ease.

    Friendly welcome and daily walk around by the owners. Liked the hedges between plots, small site which we like and not fussed by loads of facilities. Shower/toilet v clean, bit dated but they know this and were planning on renovating until Covid ruined plans.

    Disliked:

Local attractions

Did someone say cream tea? Of course they did, for the market town of Tavistock, three miles away, is the home of this most English custom: the only quibble you might have is deciding whether it's clotted cream or jam to go on your scone first.

As well as the cream teas, history buffs with have plenty to explore about the town, which has World Heritage status as it sits just on the edge of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site. Horrible History fans can step back in time too at Morwellham Quay (two miles south of the park), a live-action Victorian museum with a historic village, port, copper mine and railway.

The site is 10 minutes' drive from the edge of Dartmoor National Park and 25 minutes from one of the Dartmoor visitor centres at Princetown. Also within easy reach are the Tamar Trails activity centre, less than a five-minute drive away, and Maddacleave Wood and Gawton Gravity Hub (an intense 500-foot mountain bike descent trail), within a couple of minutes.

Trethorne Leisure Park, about half an hour’s drive north, has something come rain or shine, including dodgems, soft play, farm animals, bowling and crazy golf.

Must see

  • National Marine Aquarium (18.9 kilometers)
  • Dartmoor Zoological Park (19.5 kilometers)
  • Buckfast Abbey (29.7 kilometers)

National Trust

  • Cotehele Mill (4.9 kilometers)
