A short drive from the A30 and easy access to Dartmoor and beyond

We've just spent Easter bank holiday weekend at this CL and overall were very happy with our stay. It's well located to explore Dartmoor which is what we wanted, it has the lovely fruitful village of Bovey Tracey nearby and yet far enough away. We arrived in the dark on the Thursday evening and the stars were incredible so if you want to see stars, this is a lovely spot! Disadvantages of arriving in the dark however are the slope that the pitches are on which meant that we had to sort out levelling out properly the next day as the side of our pitch (pitch 1) was quite spongy, in the grass, wet and the gravel had formed it's own hole, which meant that the levelling (on the wrong side of the wheel lock!) was hard to do in the dark with a torch. There were a few things to point out that would have been welcomed. An email after the final payment with additional arrival information would have been appreciated with all details of the site (I sent an email the day before our visit asking if there were any driving/arrival instructions etc but it wasn't picked up until the morning after we arrived) for example where the chemical waste disposal was as we didn't see this for the first two days! It's well hidden (which is also fine!) but the sign is very small on the gate and you have to go looking for it and maybe some links to recommended places nearby. Also a mop for the shower would have been great. When you arrive, the drive splits into two, caravans are supposed to take the left side (full of pot holes) but can fit down the right (but watch out for the well). The utility area and shower room are useful(though washing machine and dryer are coin metered). The shower is large and warm with a towel radiator. The light did go out on me when I was in there but a little arm waving brought it back again. Sink for washing up was useful. Small list of suggested and useful places on the walls. Excellent dog walking field, fully enclosed, our demented spaniel found the tiny stream that runs by the hedge so beware the water if you don't want a wet dog! The field runs parallel to the pitches so no distance to walk with the dogs. Recommendation from us, try The Claycutters Arms for your Sunday roast. The food arrived within minutes, was incredible and very tasty. Dogs also welcome.
