General

  • Family-friendly site half an hour from the edge of Dartmoor
  • A 15-minute drive from Okehampton and 45 from Exeter
  • Reiki, massage and reflexology therapies; communal cabin with stove

In 2013, the owners of Hideaway Camping upped sticks and left London to escape the chaos of city life in favour of something a little slower and a little more peaceful. At the family-friendly site they set up 15 minutes’ drive from Northlew village in Devon, they want to give their guests a taste of that escape: come here to hide away...

You can start this right on site by signing up for the likes of reflexology, reiki, massage and shamanic healing, before getting out for strolls to really soothe your work-addled spirit. The site is about half an hour from the edge of Dartmoor National Park, so walking, hiking, biking and riding trails are all nearby, including the Granite Way cycle path, National Route 27 and the Tarka Trail.

Put your feet up back on site and bask in the peace and quiet, dozing gently over a book or board game in front of the Little Melbury communal cabin logburning stove; if you want to explore instead, there are trails to wander along leafy banks.

Feeling peckish? Nab supplies in Okehampton, 15 minutes away, to prep in the Little Melbury kitchen or over a barbecue. Then pass the evening next to the campfire making the most of any clear skies for a bit of stargazing... then hide away to get ready for doing the lot all over again the next day.

Please note

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

    This is a quiet site with plenty of space so it will never be crowded. It is excellent that there are compost toilets in the camping area as well as the main facilities. The showers are excellent. I think that my tent pitch had possibly the best view in Devon, with majestic sunrises each morning that I was there. No traffic noise - in fact the only sounds that could be heard were of the sheep, birdsong and the owl which called every night near my tent. This is a gem of a camp site.

    Disliked: 

    The approach lane was a challenge but there had been heavy rain the previous week.

Local attractions

Start your stay by getting a taste of the Dartmoor experience in the town of Okehampton, 15 minutes’ drive from the site: explore the ruins of the 11th-century castle (rumoured to be haunted), then continue on to the Museum of Dartmoor Life to learn about the people who have lived here over the last 5,000 years.

Keep it in the past with stops at some of the neighbouring stately piles to see how the wealthy used to live (Castle Drogo, Powderham Castle, Cotehele, Killerton House and Knightshayes Court are all within around an hour), or venture into Exeter, 45 minutes away, for museums, underground passages and the famed Exeter Cathedral.

After something a little more active? Make a foray into Dartmoor for horse riding, gorge scrambling and whitewater kayaking and canoeing, climb Hay Tor for spectacular views, swim over to Tamar Lakes for sailing and windsurfing, or head coastward for beaches, surfing, coasteering and paddleboarding in Bude seaside resort.

Got kids toddling along behind? There are plenty of theme parks and adventure parks within an hour of the site, or you could try something a little less high-octane with afternoons at the Miniature Pony Centre or Gnome Reserve and Wildflower Garden.

Must see

  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (14.0 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (14.5 miles)
  • Buckfast Abbey (23.2 miles)

National Trust

  • Lydford Gorge (6.8 miles)
