Travelling party: Family with children, 4 – 12 years

This is one of the best campsites we’ve ever been to. Camping in a meadow, in the forest, next to the river dart.
I have yet to see a better campsite for children in the UK.
If the price seems a little steep for camping - remember that you also have the park facilities such as zip lining, high wires, freshwater swimming in the pirate ship lake, slides, forts. You will NOT feel short changed! The staff are lovely and the restaurant (operating takeaway at present) is excellent. The setting is stunning too. I have been twice and will go again soon I hope.

Pretty and clean campsite, it was quite busy on a summer weekend, after the weekend really quiet. Nice location and good to explore Dartmoor. Would go there again!

"Beautiful campsite situated in a valley beside the river Dart, at the edge of Dartmoor National Park. Campsite is part of a large adventure park and is therefore suitable for families with older children. Reservations for mid and high season are required."
