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!

    Good but extras are expensive

    We enjoyed the day at River Dart but there are quite a few activities that you have to pay extra for. This is fairly standard for kids parks but the price of a couple of them is a bit overkill. Read full review

    We would definitely recommend camping at River Dart. Friendly staff and so much for the kids to do. They loved the rope swing in the water and the pirate ship. Bring wetsuits if it’s a bit chilly... Read full review
