Harford Bunkhouse and Camping: Spacious pitches with no size restriction

General

  • Working farm site on the southern edge of Dartmoor
  • A range of accommodation, all with parking alongside
  • Dogs on leads welcome and small campfires allowed

Kayakers, canoeists, families, couples and groups have all been known to bunk down at the friendly Harford Bunkhouse and Camping, a working farm on the southern edge of Dartmoor where the main sounds you’ll hear are the site animals – not a baaaaad sound to wake up to…

Harford is right on Dartmoor, with moor than enough stuff in the area for all ages and inclinations, including poking around tiny traditional villages, farm sites and zoos, old houses and ancient castles, and active options like watersports, climbing, hiking and biking. And hacking: nearby Ivybridge has a couple of riding schools for group and private lessons, and there are miles of bridleways, old byways and moorland routes around Dartmoor.

The site is a short distance from the river and a mile and a half from the old town of Ivybridge with several pubs, Tesco and the rated Riverbank restaurant in the Glanvilles Mill shopping centre. It welcomes dogs (on leads at all times, please) and allows small campfires – although fires (and barbecues) must be kept off the ground and are at the owners’ discretion, so please ask before you spark one up.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

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

Beautiful farm with warm and friendly hosts. Really peaceful place. …06/11/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomMaryjane S.Mobile phone iconConfirmed

  • #1 camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful farm with warm and friendly hosts. Really peaceful place. The communal areas were clean and functional. Loved the pods being in the woods, completely surrounded by nature!

    Disliked: 

    The only electricity anywhere near the pods was in the communal area and gas was only available at a cost (not included as stated). With the pods being in the woods, they do get cold at night, so bring warm pyjamas and extra bedding (that's where a small electric heater would have been very welcome)!

    Beautiful setting that makes you feel like you are nestled into the heart of Dartmoor despite only being just within the national park. Although the amenities are basic, the stripped-back appeal of the site is an absolute positive in our eyes.

    With the friendly owners and their glorious bunch of farmyard animals in tow, our little one thoroughly enjoyed herself too. We hope to return in the summer months.

Good clean site and nice pitches06/04/2021

Reviewer's country: United KingdomSteve O.Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    Nice site and quite. Clean shower blocks. Shower was nice and hot. Also it runs constant and you don't have to keep pressing buttons. Good washing up area. Basic site and a great base for Dartmoor.

    It's a mixed shower area so watch out if that's an issue.

    Catches the sun early and late on too. No issues parking the car. Small car park or next to the tent.

    Good value for money.

    If you want a clubhouse and lots of facilities then look elsewhere. Also, it's a bit remote so make sure you stock up beforehand.

    No complaints at all.

    Nice location on edge of Dartmoor, hot water in showers, peacocks walking round the place, friendly site.

    Slope is a problem for tents, can be quite exposed in the wind.

From the manager...

Thanks for your review.
Unfortunately we can't do anything about the slope as we are on Dartmoor.

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

As well as all the hiking, seeing the Dartmoor ponies is also a must: you’ll spot them all over the moors even if driving, but if you or the kids want to get up close, pony treks are available from several companies, and the Original Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhamstead gives kids the chance to take a better look (double check opening times before you book as they have seasonal opening).

Also nearby for mini naturalists is the Dartmoor Zoological Park, subject of the book and film We Bought a Zoo and housing big cats, monkeys, snakes and plenty more from around the globe; and the National Marine Aquarium less than ten miles away in Plymouth.

Three top walking trails are within a couple of miles of Harford Bunkhouse: the Erme Valley Trail, the Erme-Plym Trail and the Two Moors coast to coast Way from Ivybridge on the south coast to Lynmouth, Exmoor on the north. This in turn connects at various places to other long-distance paths including the Tarka Trail, the South West Coast Path and the Dartmoor Way.

Walking too much faff? Cast off peacefully with the fishing opps in the area, from guided fly fishing trips on Dartmoor to fishing for salmon and trout on the River Erme.

Must see

  • Dartmoor Zoological Park (3.5 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (8.4 miles)
  • National Marine Aquarium (10.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Saltram (7.7 miles)
  • Salcombe: Thurlestone to Torcross (7.7 miles)
