Wild camping pitch

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.

    Site was lovely, quiet and very clean. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The pod was bigger than expected although not huge and was great for what we wanted. The woodland was lovely to walk through and the dog loved it and it was great to sit around a real fire. Thanks, we will be back.

    Well spaced out, good sized pitches, clean facilities, friendly staff. Everything was really very good.

    Disliked: 

    The showers were a bit of a mess at times. This wasn't a lack of cleaning on the part of the staff, more a case of other campers being discourteous by not cleaning up after themselves.

    WONDERFUL SETTING IN OR AROUND THE BEAUTIFUL WOODS, PITCHES ARE QUIRKY WITH THE TENTS AND HUTS ALL MIXED IN RATHER THAN BLOCKS OF ONE KIND. THE FACILITIES ARE BASIC BUT CLEAN AND THE MEMBER OF STAFF WHO WELCOMED US WAS SO FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL.
    SHORT WALK TO LOVELY PUB WHICH DOES GREAT FOOD AND ALL THE TOWNS ON THE ENGLISH RIVIERA ARE A SHORT DRIVE AWAY.

    Disliked: 

    NOT MUCH TO DISLIKE.
    AS YOU CANT DRIVE TO YOUR PITCH (WHICH IS A GOOD THING) IF YOU DON'T HAVE A PORTABLE AIR BED PUMP YOU HAVE TO INFLATE IT IN THE CAR PARK SO YOUR BED TENDS TO GET DUSTY AND AT RISK OF PUNCTURE ON THE CHIPPING'S SO AN AREA FOR THIS ON THE GRASS WOULD BE GOOD.
    THE SHOWERS ARE NICE AND HOT BUT STOP AFTER 12 SECONDS WHICH IS REALLY ANNOYING AS YOU HAVE TO CONSTANTLY PRESS THE BUTTON TO RESTART.
    PITCHES ARE QUITE SLOPED BUT WE WERE WILD CAMPING SO CAN'T REALLY CMPLAIN.

    Beautiful woodland setting
    Nice clean facilities
    Friendly helpful staff
    Campfires permitted
    Great location for exploring
    Stayed here 2 nights with 2 friends, had a campfire both nights (wood can be purchased on site) just what we all needed. Only dislike was i wish we'd had a couple more days to stay here. Will definitely stay here again if given the opportunity, highly recommended site if you need a peaceful break away from it all.

    Worth noting after 10 (I think it was 10) the site is very quiet, noise curfew kind of thing. This wasn't an issue for us as we quite enjoyed the quiet nights and having to whisper, but probably not suited to big loud parties of people.

    Excellent location, really friendly welcoming staff. We stayed in the Hansel pod which was close enough to the facilities but far enough away to be peaceful. We loved cooking over the fire pit each night and will be going back again.

    The campsite was easy to find, perfectly located and the staff were lovely. The management of Covid with the rules on the toilets etc worked pefectly and i praise the staff/managment for finding a resolution, instead of just closing the facilities etc.

    The camp is beautiful, plenty of space and ideal for a quiet camping get away. The fire pits are awesome also!

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.
