General

  • Peaceful, rural and hidden-away site on 68 acres of woodland
  • Campfires encouraged; cosy pub 10 minutes' walk away
  • 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 set around a growing forest with accommodation areas carefully laid out by the helpful and friendly owners, and is a mere 10-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.

Nearby pub, walking distance in Rattery - Church House Inn …10/20/2022

  • Liked: 

    Nearby pub, walking distance in Rattery - Church House Inn - had fantastic food.

    Disliked: 

    The facilities were in need of an upgrade. There was no hot water in any taps, no hairdryers in shower block. The shower block had no heating and the wooden benches in the showers were rotting. There was no-one at reception. The kitchen facilities were all open and full of leaves etc. The pitch was right next to the woods and was quite dark. No wifi

    We left after 2 nights.

From the manager...

Hi Debra,
There is plenty of hot water in all taps marked hot.
Do we advertise hair dryers ? No.
The shower block has heating.
The wooden benches are not rotten.
Reception is unmanned from the 15th of September, but there is a number to ring if you need anything.
If the door to the kitchen is left open leaves will blow in, you are in a wood in autumn.
You are in a wood, it says it in the name.
Please do not try to blame us for you leaving early, not telling us and then trying to claim a refund via email later.
Lister.

A quiet location10/12/2022

    A quiet location

    Disliked: 

    Dark and gloomy conifer forest. Everything seemed pretty basic.

From the manager...

Hi sharan,
Sorry to hear this, but you did book in October when the nights are drawing in and i would say that there are about 50 conifer trees compared to the 50,000+ other trees in the woods. We advertise our site with basic facilities, so perhaps reading before booking might help.

    We wanted to try our new camper out somewhere locally and couldn't have picked a more perfect location. In fact we enjoyed it so much we rebooked almost straight away. The location is wonderful. Extremely peaceful. I loved listening to the birds and smelling the fires.

    It's dog friendly, which is important to us. I would ask everyone else not to take the mick though. Clean up after your dogs, otherwise none of us will be able to take them anywhere!

    Gentleman on site was really friendly and helpful.

    Facilities were beautifully clean and the shop was useful.

    Disliked: 

    Pressing the shower button constantly was a bit of a nuisance. I get that it saves water, but it made washing my hair almost impossible.

Local attractions

Tucked away needn’t mean being stuck for things to do… Set in the South Hams on the south coast of Devon, the campsite is just off the accessible A38, 10 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, for fly fishing 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.
