Why stay here ...

Ashbury Caravan Park is a peaceful location that offers spectacular Dartmoor Views. Set next to our own pasture where horses, geese and goats graze. It is easily accessible from the main road, but retains a feeling of seclusion and tranquility.

A perfect place to break your journey on the way to Cornwall as well as an excellent base to make home, whilst exploring the surrounding area. Easily accessible from the A30 (Sourton turn off is only a 5 minute drive away) we are just off the A3079 Bude / Holsworthy road.

Fabulous walking and cycling (cycle hire available on the Granite way and the Tarka trail).

Just a quarter of a mile from Ashbury Golf Course where day passes are available to site residents only from £20.00 per day (club hire and buggies can be obtained at the Golf shop). Also a quarter of a mile from Lakeside course fishing and tennis courts. Local riding centres have both Dartmoor and bridleway riding, Watersports are on offer at Roadford reservoir and serious mountain bike terrain at Tavistock. 

A few local attractions include Okehampton Castle, Lydford Gorge, Finch Foundry, Eastcott Vinyard and The Alpaca Park. The fascinating Castle Drogo with its beautiful gardens and riverside walks is just 25 minutes drive away. R.H.S Rosemoor is a similar distance.

The small Town of Okehampton only 3 miles away and has a choice of shops supermarkets cinema and laundrette as well as pubs sometimes featuring live music, restaurants and numerous sporting facilities.

We welcome adults, children and well-behaved dogs.

Has amazing potential

Ashbury Caravan Park
As per the previous review we can confirm there were 6 vans on site and to be fair to the owner he did inform me of this prior to arriving. The site has the potential to be a contender for CL of the year. However, it definitely needs some TLC the grass was only cut once in two weeks and even then not fully. The toilets and shower must be cleaned daily especially during these Covid times and a mop and bucket would be really useful in the shower. Another example would be to tidy up the tyres containing currently weeds, even trying to level the pitches would help immensely all these points are really easy to implement and action. The owner is so friendly and helpful and the views are truly amazing it has everything going for it just needs that TLC. I have spoken honestly and balanced on our experience at Ashbury.

Great ! and not so great

Ashbury Caravan Park
The views from this site are amazing and the site owner is a nice guy. We stayed here for 10 days recently (2021) - returning after last visiting 6 years ago. Sadly the site is not quite as it was, no bbq area (not that that bothered us) no cafe as it once had either - again no big deal. The pitches are in need of some TLC now but the access and views and dog walk area are all great. However, fellow campers, please be aware that they do not always adhere to the 5 van rule and abuse it to the point where we returned one day to find another van had been pitched right in front of us and there were 9 vans on site - view gone. The 6 real pitches are all down one side so giving each one a fab view of Dartmoor. Parking people on non pitches (no elec) to squeeze them on is not what we had in mind when booking a CL. I accept some site do at times put more on than they should, and if it does not hinder your own enjoyment of the site - hey ho - but this was not on. So summary a great little site but be aware you may well find yourselves with many more vans than expected and if this does not worry you than all well and good.

Excellent site

Ashbury Caravan Park
Thank you for having us stay. First time we have ventured out since lockdown and we were perfectly comfortable. Fabulous site, arrival was simple and welcoming, hosts are lovely people, informative and helpful Everywhere was kept very clean and tidy Close enough to the town to be handy but far enough away to be peaceful, with beautiful views all around. Looking forward to a return visit

Wonderful stay

Ashbury Caravan Park
We stayed here for 15 nights in our motorhome with our 3 dogs.Having water on the pitch is a great bonus. The toilets and shower were immaculate which was reassuring as we visited as soon as lockdown was eased. There is a useful paddock to let the dogs into morning and night. The grass was cut but it would be perfect if all grass clippings were collected.Views towards Dartmoor are stunning . Derek and Gill has an excellent site which is easy to find and great to visit Devon. The cycle trails nearby are easy to find. Thank you both for a great stay

A warm welcome

Ashbury Caravan Park
We were warmly welcomed, and the site provided all we could ask in the way of facilities - I gather there were even loos and showers, although I didn't find them until we were leaving! But it was a delightful site, slightly "in the middle of nowhere" but not so far out of Okehampton that we couldn't go in there next day to look round.
