This Club campsite is great for the whole family, set in Dartmoor National Park.

Our lovely Teign Valley, Barley Meadow Club campsite lies at the northern edge of the Dartmoor National Park in the heart of Devon. Surrounded by moorland landscapes and wooded valleys this campsite is perfect for a relaxing break.

A small site, just 63 pitches, it caters well for all types of camper with good toilet and shower facilities, a children’s play area, games room and shop.

Sit back and admire the views across Dartmoor from your pitch or pull on your walking boots and join the Two Moors Way. This popular long distance trail passes just a few hundred yards from the campsite. For a gentler stroll, pretty Drewsteignton village is a short walk away. Reward yourself with a well-earned pint at the Drewe Arms or continue on to Fingle Bridge, a local beauty spot, or Castle Drogo, England’s newest Castle.

Some of the attractions further afield include, the National Trust run Finch Foundry, the last remaining water-powered forge in England, Canonteign Falls – England’s highest waterfall, Fernworthy Reservoir and Stone Lane Gardens. Around twelve miles from the campsite, Exeter offers a mix of culture, history, places to eat and shops.

Very disappointing experience. On booking, we had specifically requested a quieter pitch.

This review is for Teign Valley, Barley Meadow

Very disappointing experience. On booking, we had specifically requested a quieter pitch. Instead we were allocated possibly the noisiest pitch on the site, alongside the road, which is actually the old A30 and very noisy. This was despite there being several empty pitches on the quieter side of the site. When I asked if we could move, I was told in a very unpleasant manner by the male warden, that all pitches were fully booked - clearly untrue - as they remained empty. I was also the given what can only be described as a hectoring lecture about not driving on the grass, because the warden had no means of towing me off and it would cost me a lot of money to bring a recovery service in. I have been motorhoming for many years and could see that driving on the grass would have been a bad idea, without the lecture! Subsequently, my wife spoke to the female warden, who was much more helpful, and readily agreed that we could move as there were several vacant pitches. The facilities on site are kept clean, but are primitive in the extreme, and have a DIY look about them. I looked at the so-called motorhome service point, but it appeared to be in a state of abandonment, so I did not attempt to use it. All in all, this was a profoundly depressing experience, alleviated only by the friendly and helpful approach of the female warden.

Please do not be put off this site as we nearly were from the previous negative comments. We could not have received a better welcome, not only introducing us to the site, but also the wider area. Thank you for a lovely stay - we will definitely be back for a return visi

polite staff, site and facilities very clean.

This review is for Teign Valley, Barley Meadow

polite staff, site and facilities very clean. Narrow entrance, lower pitches are extremely noisy although screened by trees the Road is very busy and you are only 10ft away. The dog exercise area is not suitable to allow your dog off a lead (No gates and holes in hedge by the road ). Visit spoiled by unruly children on bikes with radios blaring and dog running free. However a good stop-over site if on your travels .

This review is for Teign Valley, Barley Meadow

Had a very friendly welcome here, and was offered information about buses & places of interest locally (plus there's an information stand). There's lots to see in the area and I'd happily go back to see more. Site is next to a road but traffic is sparse overnight so not disruptive. The bus to Exeter/Okehampton or Bude stops right outside the site. Site is kept clean and has all the necessary facilities. It's a small site and not much running around space for children or dogs. But a very pleasant environment with plenty of bird life to watch while eating breakfast.
