    What a wonderful camping holiday. Was so nice that our kids actually left our sides and went off round the park on their own. Very safe and friendly for older kids. Obviously there's a log of... Read full review

Map & Directions

Road Directions

Within the Dartmoor National Park, yet only one mile from the A38 between Exeter and Plymouth near Ashburton, we are easy to find and conveniently located. Follow the brown tourist signs to the River Dart Country Park from the Peartree Junction on the A38 by Ashburton. Peartree junction is the second Ashburton junction when travelling from Exeter direction. Do not come off at the Linhay junction which takes you through the narrow streets of Ashburton - not ideal when towing a caravan!
