A Big Thank You for your warm welcome and kind hospitality and for all your hard work and for the lovely capacious caravan field in an idyllic countryside / farm location. The site itself and loos and shower and laundry room and other amenities are modern, comfortable spacious and spotless. The grass field is moderately sloping. This did not present any problems but levelling ramps are handy. The field is bordered by a mature oak wood on one side (green woodpeckers in the day, owls hooting by night) and a hay meadow on the other side. There are horse paddocks and the main house lies a few tens of metres away from the field beyond self-catering barn conversions. Views from the caravans are largely ringed with fields and vegetation, beyond which is glimpsed Hay Tor and the high Moor. Turning right out of the entrance takes you on a voyage of discovery up a classic Devon Lane which opens out onto high plateau farmland and continues rising to the picturesque and remote hilltop village of Hennock where the Palk Arms serves local ales and hearty meals and has peerless views over the Devon countryside. We also enjoyed the Claycutters Public House in Chudleigh Knighton. Turning left out of the entrance leads to heathland walks. Bovey Tracey (2.5 miles) is a busy and attractive Dartmoor town with a steep high street, riverside park and walks, cafes and local amenities. Access to the East Dunley site is from the A38 via wide and low stress local roads. I would personally suggest if towing a caravan, when approaching the site from the east on the A38 you might want to consider exiting at the main Bovey Tracey junction (A382) (large roundabout), then doing a 360 degree turn on the roundabout and coming back along the eastbound A38 carriageway for about a mile before exiting at the first available junction then turning left and then across the B3344. This route avoids the Chudleigh Knighton main street where parked cars might present a bit of a challenge to novice caravaners like us.
