Why stay here ...

East Dunley is a quiet smallholding set in rolling hills next to Dartmoor. All our guests are made to feel as welcome as possible and are free to enjoy the range of wildlife in the area that includes owls, woodpeckers and grazing horses. Dogs are welcome so long as they are kept on a lead. The site has good road access with no narrow lanes.

The site is a slightly sloping large field, approaching 1 acre with stunning views over Dartmoor and a wood behind for shelter. All our grass pitches are fitted with electric hook ups and have plenty of space for awnings and privacy. Brand new WC/shower facilities are available  We also have laundry facilities.

We are conveniently placed for exploring nearby Haytor, the Templer Way and the many walks, woodlands, villages and other attractions in Dartmoor National Park. We are also within easy reach of the coast, golf courses and the many other attractions that are available in other local areas.

Bovey Tracey is 2 miles away and is known as the 'Gateway to the Moor'. It is a small market town with supermarkets, local shops, and a choice of restaurants and public houses to meet your needs.

Great setting for a wonderful site

East Dunley
Just returned after a 15 night stay could not of asked for a better site. Large pitches with woodlands on the edge of the site which allowed us to see plenty of wildlife especially on those very hot day. The toilets and showers were spotless. We had 2 pitches as we went with our friends and our dogs which are well behaved and we cleaned up after them as any responsible dog owners would. The ground was firm when we arrived it did rain heavily but the site didn't get messy and muddy and soon dried out. We were give some great information about the surrounding areas and a local heath just a walk down the lanes which allowed our dog to have a run. A walk into Bovey Tracey along the country lanes was well worth it as had a variety of small shops and tea rooms and a large park which catered for all ages. We were not far from Paignton Torquay and Dawlish.We would highly recommend this site

Beautiful peaceful site

East Dunley
We have just returned from a 14 night stay at this peaceful site, we were with friends so we had 2 pitches. Facilities were spotlessly clean. We were lucky enough to be there during the recent hot spell so didn’t go off site due to having dogs, which were well behaved and we cleaned any of their mess up as any responsible owner would. As the ground was hard when it did rain we expected the site to flood and be muddy as per the previous review but even when the heavy rain came after the heat, we had no issue with mud or flooding. Dominic was most welcoming and informative and recommended a few places to visit, which we did, including Cockington. There are plenty of things to do and places to visit including Dawlish, Torquay and a great park in Bovey Tracey. We would highly recommend this site.

Perfect location and Easy access

East Dunley
First time in Devon for us with a caravan, so we went for this site partly for ease of access. The site is a few minutes drive off the A38 with easy roads to access the site. The site is in a grass field and is slightly sloping, although they do have some hard standing available. I can't comment on the toilet and shower facilities because they were closed due to the Covid rules. The site manager Dominic greeted us on arrival and was a phone call away if we needed anything further. What we really loved about this place was the peaceful, quite location with excellent road links near by to explore the area. The site is situated on the edge of Dartmoor with Haytor an easy drive away as was access to the coast. There is literally so much to do and see in the area and this site is perfectly situated for it all. Bovey Tracey the local town has a co-op and tesco express and was a 2 min drive away. I would highly recommend this site as a great base to explore this part of Devon.

Great site

East Dunley
Lovely little site, very convenient to lots of lovely places to visit. A must visit place has got to be Bellever Forest, it's so beautiful. The facilities were spotlessly clean and very adequate although it would have been good to have some where to put your shower soap etc.
