Down Yonder Campsite

10

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Small, peaceful site in Devon's Ruby Country with private bathrooms
  • A 20-minute drive to Dartmoor National Park and 25 to Bude beach
  • Direct access to the Ruby Way bridleway for walks and cycle rides

If indecision over whether to go for a coastal or countryside trip often plagues you when pondering where to stay, one solution is to dawdle over to Down Yonder Campsite, and settle in among the Dexter cows and sheep on this scenic smallholding 25 minutes’ drive from the seaside.

This spot surrounded by the rural greenery of north-west Devon’s Ruby Country is also just 20 minutes from Dartmoor National Park for ambles through atmospheric moorlands. And for those with no wheels? The beach at Bude and the city of Exeter (50 minutes’ drive) are both a cinch to get to on the bus from a stop in the local village of Beaworthy, a 15-minute walk away.

Rather not grapple with public transport (or your steering wheel, for that matter)? Stay local with wanders and bike rides along the Ruby Way, a bridleway accessible right from the site that leads onto miles’ worth of paths for walking and cycling.

Fishing’s also nearby at the Anglers Paradise lakes (less than five minutes’ drive), and archery, golf and watersports are just some of the other ace activities on offer in the surrounds.

Down Yonder has a no-frills feel but does have a toilet block with showers and an outside washing-up sink. For other amenities, the local village of Beaworthy is made up of a pub, post office, newsagent’s shop, gift shop and a fish ‘n’ chips takeaway.

A perfect introduction to small site campervanning09/24/2021

    A small site,currently just three motorhome pitches with covid considerations in place. We were the only people on site. Each pitch has its own bathroom and dish washing faclity. These were immaculate and the shower was excellent. The pitch was next to fields with far reaching views with amazing sunsets. We had our two dogs with us and they enjoyed access to the fields. At the bottom of the site is an old railway line which we followed into a vast forestry plantation, this also led to the Ruby Way footpath. Sharon greeted us on arrival and helped settle us in. This was out first experience of campervan life and I fear it will be difficult to find sites in the future with such superb facilities attached to an individual pitch.
    Thanks Sharon for a perfect introduction to small site campervanning.

    Pretty, very clean, well organised, covid secure site with the hottest showers on any campsite weve been on! Thank you! Beautiful quiet surroundings, pretty scenery, lots of wildlife to watch. Good walks, nice food in the pub. Helpful owners and family. Near enough to get to other busier places if you wish. We will return...probably next year now tho...

    We loved absolutely everything about this site and we have been to a fair few. The location is great with just a 20 minute drive into Bude and onto the famous Atlantic highway. The surroundings are quiet and picturesque. The owners were still abiding by the covid rules and restrictions so we had our own private very clean toilet and shower block. The owner is very friendly and approachable we will definitely be returning in the near future.

Local attractions

When you’re not learning how to surf on Bude beach (25 minutes’ drive), or shuffling around the shops in the town of the same name, hop it to the hinterlands of Devon in Dartmoor National Park. Access the crag-covered moorlands here from nearby towns like Okehampton (20 minutes), then wander through forests and over grassy grounds past wetlands, rivers and rock formations.

Keep your eyes peeled for the famed Dartmoor ponies that potter along the lands here or make your way to the Tamar Otter & Wildlife Centre, 30 minutes south, to catch sight of other critters including wallabies, fallow deer and owls.

For more mammals – plus a little something extra – bound over to The BIG Sheep, 45 minutes away, a farm and amusement park fusion. Standout attractions here include the Ewetopia Indoor Playground and Rampage Rollercoaster; don’t miss the sheep racing shows during the summertime.

Driving westward lands you at Tamar Lakes (30 minutes) for watersports, fishing and walking; take note that the activity centre at Upper Tamar organises kayaking, canoeing, paddleboarding, sailing and windsurfing for visitors.
