Why stay here ...
Lydford Caravan and Camping Park is known by its regular visitors for its sense of peace, beauty and tranquillity. The caravan site offers a host of stunning views of the nearby Dartmoor Tors and is set in three main fields divided by attractive hedgerows and trees. You will have a choice of both level and gently sloping pitches, either hardstanding or grass to ensure you have the caravan spot that suits you best.
Within easy reach from the caravan site you will find Lydford village, once a tinners stannary town and steeped in rich local history. Amongst its many attractions are a charming Norman castle and an ancient church which still boasts original ninth century connections. Most famous perhaps is Lydford Gorge, the deepest gorge in the south of England which stretches from the ominously named Devil's Cauldron whirlpool to the dramatic White Lady Waterfall, making for an exciting 3.5 mile circular walk. There are limitless additional walks and cycling routes close to the Lydford Caravan and Camping Park and a number of lovely National Trust properties to explore.
Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, due to unsuitable roads for towing. Leave the A30 dual carriageway onto the A386 (signposted Plymouth, Tavistock). In about 4 miles pass the Fox and Hounds public house on the left. In about 1 mile turn right (signposted Lydford village, see brown tourist sign opposite farm shop). In the centre of Lydford village turn sharp right at the war memorial. In 100 metres fork right. The site is on the left in 80 metres.
