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 Site. 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 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).

Access and SatNav Advice

Do not use SatNav due to very narrow local lanes, refer to printable location map >

Worth Noting

Most pitches are sloping so chocks required. Four holiday cottages available on site, for details contact 01822 613360. Super service pitches have water and waste but no TV point. When storing units on this site a minimum of 48 hour’s notice is required before a unit can be removed. The maximum allowable unit size is 7m and can only be removed by the site team. There are two chemical toilet disposal points, one is biodegradable, one is normal.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

The washing up area is dark even in daytime.

This review is for Tavistock

The washing up area is dark even in daytime. Could do with lighting (particularly at the far end). Looked for light switch but couldn't find one! More generally I think the Club should have free WiFi access on all sites.

Lovely site which continues to improve each time we visit.

This review is for Tavistock

Lovely site which continues to improve each time we visit. Right on dartmoor national park, ideal for walking at any time of the year. In tavistock you have lovely individual shops good cafe's, wetherspoons pub, as we have two dogs we find everywhere is dog friendly. Plymouth is not too far away with a good park and ride. Have been there in spring, summer and winter. Dickensian weekend is not to be missed. Would recommend both the site and tavistock.
