DARTMOOR CAMPING: Camping in the Heart of the Dartmoor National Park

We are a quiet, friendly, locally run campsite situated in the heart of the Dartmoor National Park, a short walk from the town of Moretonhampstead. 

There's plenty of facilities in the local area: an outdoor swimming pool, a range of pubs and tea-rooms, the local Co-op (with ATM), antique shops, a state of the arts gallery and an award winning butcher/deli plus miles of beautiful moorland to explore on foot, bike, car or horseback!

Just a short drive away is the luxury hotel, spa and golf course: Bovey Castle. Nearby attractions include: The Miniature Pony Centre, Pennywell Farm, Crealy World of Adventures, Woodlands and The River Dart Country Park and places of natural beauty include: Becky Falls, with its stunning woodland and waterfall walks; Kents Cavern, one of Europes top Neanderthal Ice Age caves and the award winning family beach of Blackpool sands.

For the more adventurous camper there is a wide variety of activities available, including rock climbing, abseiling, fishing, horse-riding, paint-balling and sailing, all within driving distance. 

We are situated only half an hour from Exeter, a city brimming with history and heritage, with many visitor attractions to keep you entertained for hours on end. From the magnificent Cathedral to the Historic Quayside, there's so much to see and do in this fascinating city.
