Just spent a weekend at River Dart & have to say it is a fabulous venue for family's with children but for more mature caravan & campers I would not recommend it. We took our 2 grandchildren & found that although the rules say respect others by not making to much noise after dark we found it incredibly difficult to... More

Our son Jamie and his wonderful fiance' Stephanie, held their Civil Wedding ceremony at Holne Park House on Saturday June 21st 2014. To start with, the weather for the weekend was fabulous, which goes hand in hand with the facility they chose, for their special day, namely Holne House. The house itself is gracious, with a feeling of granduer, but... More

We have over the last 10 years stayed at quite a few different campsites in different parts of the country, almost all of them have had their good points and their bad points, but over all we've only ever stayed at one site we wouldn't go back. River dart is not that site, not by a long stretch! We originally... More

Came here for a weekend with my partner thinking it would be a relaxing break for us as all the activities would be family / child orientated! How wrong we were! We had a fantastically fun action packed weekend and spent the entire time being big kids! So much to do, as well as the quiet woodland walks and sunbathing... More

Just back from a three night break at the River Dart Country Park Campsite. We managed to go outside of the school holidays as the school had Thursday and Friday as inset days. We went in our VW T5 campervan with two other families in a caravan and a tent (6 adults, 6 kids) - each allocated pitch was one... More

Excellent for a family holiday, good clean facilities, lots to do for children of all ages. Safe for you to let your children time on their own (15 yr olds). Bike rides, high ropes. Even though the weather wasn't brilliant they still had a brilliant time. We even managed to have a fairly relaxing break as well.

We have just got back from here after camping for 4 nights in a trailer tent, on entering the park we knew we were in for a great time, the place is in a beautiful setting with loads to do for free and also there is a option to pay for some other things. The pitches are a great size... More

Beautiful place but so is plymbridge for free!! 8 pound odd each to get in and for what? Some pretty scenery, a little river and tyre swings, how greedy to charge that much for so little. Anything worth doing you have to pay extra for. cost me 24 pounds odd for a 2 hour visit. Will never come here again... More

We have been to River Dart Country park on a couple of occasions and this was by far the best. The pitches were big and when we arrived we pretty much had the run of the place to ourselves. Clean, grass mown and the sun shining this proved to be a great start. All 4 children in our party had... More
