General

  • Peaceful, dog-friendly site in Dartmoor National Park
  • Walking distance from reservoirs; a 25-minute drive to Fingle Bridge
  • Ex-army mess tent for dining and relaxing; natural firepit area

Wild swimming, cycling, hiking or horse riding down lush Devon lanes… the wild and windswept Dartmoor National Park is where you’ll find Beech Tree Farm. At this peaceful site you’ll all have the run of a flat farm meadow with an adjoining copse of mature trees.

There's plenty of space to go around too, and it's all centred around a natural firepit area and a large vintage army mess tent space for chilling out and cooking.

The other facilities on site have a nice touch too – and that includes a railway carriage conversion with two loos, two hot water showers rooms, a mobile phone charging point and running water for dishwashing, drinking and cooking.

Very well-behaved dogs are welcome (the usual doggy rules apply and bins are provided), as are children (there’s a huge area for them to run around). There is livestock on the farm, so guests are asked to be mindful (stag or hen parties are not permitted for this reason).

The way here is quite hidden and you’ll pass Blackingstone Tor on your way. But you won’t be too far away from Moretonhampstead (10 minutes’ drive), where there are all the usual amenities including pubs, restaurants, cafés and takeaways, plus a supermarket, butcher, greengrocer and zero shop, all with locally-sourced food.

    Lovely location, really peaceful, nothing but the sound of sheep and birds. The field is big, mostly flat and is close to a local town with a few shops. The converted solar showers and toilets were very clean, lovely and warm with good pressure. There is only 2 of each, not a problem for us as we ended up being the only people there most of our stay however that may be a problem if the camp was full (not sure how many people they accommodate at once).

    Disliked: 

    Flies… so many flies!! Unable to comfortably sit outside as there is 100’s buzzing around you. Not sure if this is a normal thing or due to the weather etc… pack lots of citrus candles!! A place to freeze freezer blocks would be helpful

    A very nice, quiet spot where to camp. I don’t like busy places so this was perfect. Only 5 tent pitches on a massive field. Great facilities. Lots to see around.

Lovely, clean campsite, friendly host and beautiful Devon scenery.08/08/2022

    One of the most beautiful campsite locations. It's stunning! Basic but everything you would want really. Next to a deep dark wood! No noise! Loads of space, sunlight and beautiful countryside to explore. The host came to say hello, she left us a welcome letter too and messaged us before we arrived. The facilities were very clean, nice showers, flushing toilets. There is a gorgeous dining tent you can use, lit up at night, it was really pretty. The kids loved it. P.s Mobile phone and 4G worked fine here for us.

    Large field, few tents, so uncrowded. Wonderful old army mess tent (from 1954!) gives a nostalgic centre for the evening. Shower, WC and washup facilities in a well converted train truck were very clean and conveniently close to where we pitched. Narrow local lanes make driving to the site a typical Devon challenge, but also mean the site is not dominated by larger vehicles.

    this site is so quiet! If you want a remote, peace and quiet and to be immersed into the dart more more countryside then this is the place for you, the site is on the edge of woodland that is home to a few family of Buzzards and during our stay they were teaching their babies to fly and feed, all rather exciting! the facilities were great wit 2 very clean and stylish showers and toilets in an up cycled railway carriage and also a mess tent to eat in if you are now t blessed with sunny weather like we had!
    A visit to the community pool in the village is well worth a visit too!
    If you want clubbing, pubs and all night parties this isnt the place for you, if you want a high quality site with nature, stars then book this place
