Stayed here with 2 other families May Half Term and Couldn't fault the whole place, its amazing for kids. toilet and Shower block always being cleaned. The park activities are great and reasonably priced. Have booked already for next May and we cannot wait. Nice big pitches that you prebook, we stayed backing onto the river which was nice.

Spent a week camping on this great site with our grandson. Beautiful setting with easy access to the rest of Dartmoor. The facilities are great, clean, warm and accessible from all areas, and the adventure area for the young and not so young is just about the best we've come across on any site. On the downside, it's popularity is... More

Beautiful location, trees,streams and lakes etc However; on a sunny day the place is heaving which ruins the whole experience. If you want natural beauty and tranquillity avoid it go to the moors or woods. If you want rides,slides and thrills try a theme park or woodlands...

Yesterday we pitched our tent on this gorgeous site. We did our own cooking so had a quiet spot with everything we needed around us. There are lovely walks beside the river or in the woods. For those of us that have children definitely the place to wear them out. So much to do, plenty of play areas for all... More
