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 Site. This pretty site lies on the central western boundary of the stunning Dartmoor National Park.

This spacious campsite accommodates up to 75 units and has modern facilities including individual shower rooms with toilet and sink, disabled facilities and a laundry and washing up area. As well as the many dog walking opportunities off-site, there are two large enclosed dog walks on site.

Tavistock, 2 ½ miles from the site, has world heritage status. It is a picturesque and ancient Stannary and market town with the beautiful River Tavy running through its centre. Whether you enjoy lovely cafes and shops or grand architecture and historical abbey ruins, it is well worth a visit.

Leave your car on site and venture on foot or two wheels and explore Dartmoor’s sweeping hills and wooded valleys. The National Cycle Route number 27 (coast to coast Ilfracombe to Plymouth) passes 200 yards from the site.

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.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

Fabulous site. Great facilities. Very clean. Had a choice of pitches when we arrived.

Fabulous site. Great facilities. Very clean. Had a choice of pitches when we arrived. Very peaceful. Great site for star gazing. We cycled from the site to Whitchurch and got on the Drakes trail to Plymouth. Also to Lydford gorge but there are some big hills. Would definitely come back.

This review is for Tavistock

The welcome we received from the assistants was friendly and informative, and with the site being full when we arrived, we were offered a slightly sloping pitch in the centre of the grass area.The site itself is next to a road which becomes busy at times and can be noisey, particularly if pitched on the perimeter, next to it. The facilities are well tended, and were clean at all times, with each shower being combined with a w.c. and basin arrangement. The entire site is immaculately kept. The bus service was not all we'd hoped for with few options for travel, but the driver was very friendly, as was our experience of most people we met on the day we visited Tavistock. We found 3 bakeries, 2 butchers, 1 deli' and a superb cheese shop, and the Pannier market was well worth the visit....as was the town museum. All-in-all we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the site. Look out for midgies, I left with lots if bites on my legs!

Good base for Dartmoor and the added bonus of a bus service into Tavistock if you want to leave the car or motorhome at the site, good range of shops in Tavistock and great farmers market on Fridays, there is also a Leisure Centre for those who want to swim etc., very good dog walk, and the only thing you need to look out for are the midges !!
