Overview

  • Campsite is located within a National Park

    Site within National Park

There are glorious views of Dartmoor National Park from this lovely Devon campsite.

Fabulous views and numerous walking and cycling opportunities await those camping at our lovely Tavistock Club campsite. This pretty site lies on the central western boundary of the stunning Dartmoor National Park.

This spacious campsite accommodates up to 80 units and has modern facilities including individual showers rooms with toilet and sink, disabled facilities and a laundry and washing up area. As well as the many dog walking opportunities off site, Tavistock has a large dog walking area on site too.

Leave your car on site and venture on foot or two wheels and explore Dartmoor’s sweeping hill and wooded valleys. For example, the 11-mile Granite Way passes north of Tavistock campsite from Lydford to Okehampton and takes in spectacular views of Meldon viaduct, Meldon lake and Okehampton castle.

A good place to start your visit to Dartmoor is the National Park Visitor Centre at Princetown, east of Tavistock campsite. Displays and exhibitions give a wonderful insight into the history, culture and wildlife of the area. Princetown also offers excellent access to the north and south moors for hill walkers.

The beautiful village of Sheepstor south east of Tavistock campsite is where Stephen Spielberg’s Warhorse was filmed, while north of the campsite, Lydford boasts a castle and the stunning Lydford Gorge which stretches for one and a half miles from the Devil’s Cauldron whirlpool to the 100ft Whitelady Waterfall.

This review is for Tavistock

This is a site we visit 2-3 times a year as it is just inside the Dartmoor National park so, makes it ideal for those who like to explore the area or for those like ourselves who just want to chill out and read in relative peace and quiet. There is a bit of road noise but, nothing too bad. There is also Tavistock with its myriad of small shops about 5 minutes away by car for shopping although you wouldn't have guessed it was that close. The staff are fantastic and make you feel at home straight away and are always ready with advice or information. We are looking forward to our next visit in February.

The showers could be a bit warmer, it has two reasonable dog walks and the access onto the moors is just a 15 minute walk down the road. Loved Tavistock, just a shame it rained so much

Helpful printed directions for two walks starting and finishing at the site, each going up on to the moor and on to neighbouring Tors.
