Camp Dartington: Spacious pitches

General

  • Scenic family-friendly site on the spectacular Dartington Estate
  • Five minutes’ drive from Totnes and a half-hour from Plymouth
  • Wild swimming, zipwire, cinema, arts and crafts, and restaurant

Active types seeking luxury getaways would do well to make a beeline for Camp Dartington, a family-friendly site in the grounds of the spectacular and sprawling Dartington Hall Estate, five minutes’ drive from the Devon market town of Totnes.

The site’s well set up for burning energy, with wild swimming spots and walks to follow (with kingfishers and otters to spy along the way), and Dynamic Adventures on the grounds providing canoeing, zipwiring and archery outlets for guests.

Those of a more artistic bent are looked after too: there are arts and crafts courses (including life drawing, sculpture and spoon carving) to sign up for, gigs and theatre in the Great Hall, and a 14th-century converted barn cinema showing current movies and arthouse films.

The estate’s listed gardens are pleasant to saunter around, with plenty of routes to choose from. Food’s easily sorted too, with a café serving breakfast, lunch, tea and cake, a restaurant (in the medieval feasting hall) serving lunch and dinner, and local organic vegetables and eggs for sale in the shop a few hundred feet away.

Should Dartington Estate somehow grow tiresome, a 10-minute stroll into the village of Dartington will lead guests to The Shops – a collection of stores selling glassware, jewellery, crafts and local delicacies – and the Devon Gin School.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No cars/motorcycles at the site. All cars must be parked in the designated area.

Reception is unmanned after 8 p.m.. Please inform the park while on your way there should you expect to arrive after this time, so that the team can provide information about your unit/pitch.

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

    Beautiful surroundings.

    Disliked: 

    Price - way overpriced compared to what we normally pay for similar and even cleaner and better facilities.
    Your not allowed your car on the pitching field, a lot of work to use a wheel barrow to transport stuff to pitch especially when raining, this was not made absolutely clear when booking.
